Rated 4.13 out of 5 stars
This is the best hydrating cleanser I have found for the price! It doesn't contain any fragrance, which is terrible for your skin and doesn't leave your skin feeling tight. I love that it has hyaluronic acid. I have dry skin and dry patches. I use this cleanser and the CeraVe moisturizer in the tub. I use it in the morning for extra hydration, then I switch to another cleanser at night. The people who are giving this a low rating don't understand what it is for. THIS IS NOT A MAKEUP REMOVER. There are no claims that it will remove makeup. If you wear makeup, you should be taking your makeup off with some type of makeup removal product FIRST. Then go in with this cleanser.
I have incredibly dry skin so this stood out to me because 1. the price and 2. it's supposed to be hydrating. I don't find this hydrating whatsoever, my skin felt so tight and my dry patches felt ten times worse. Plus, only after 2 days of using it my face broke out into incredibly itchy hives. Very dissapointing.

Wonderful addition to my skincare routine. The product cleaned my skin well while not drying it out. It has a lotion-like texture when I apply it. This is a product that I will keep on buying.

I honestly am using this as a body wash until it is gone so I don't feel as if I wasted my money. Won't buy again nor refer to anyone who had normal to dry skin especially in dry winter climates.

I use this every morning and I love it! It cleared a lot of my blackheads after just a few uses and doesn't dry my skin out like my other cleansers.

Been using for about a week now. Feels like I'm rubbing conditioner on my face, which is weird? But it definitely is hydrating

This product is truly great for my dry/flaky skin! And it's also great for my eczema in my face! Definitely would recommend

Haven't been using it long enough to answer any more questions!

I used this hydrating cleanser on my face 3 nights in a row. 1st time fine, 2nd time there was tingling, 3rd time is was burning. The product made the skin above my lip and around my nose burn so I stopped using the cleanser after this third time. Then over the next few days I developed around 3 pretty sizeable whiteheads is this area which I NEVER get in this area. I just have a small patch of stubborn cystic acne on my left cheek and hormonal acne on my chin and jaw around that time. This product make my left cheek acne worsen, swell, and become very painful. I used the Peach and Lily Resurfacing Mask to reset my face it helped immensely with my cheek irritation and helped to shrink the pimples this cleanser gave me. Although I will no longer let this cleanser anywhere near my face, I have used this cleanser for my body with no problems, no irritation, or stinging. I do have Keratosis Pilaris on my upper arms and a little around my knees and I have seen no difference or worsening in my KP, so I'll use this bottle but will not be reurchasing.

Great hydrating cleanser! It leaves the skin feeling clean, refreshed, supple.

I love this product and it is great for dry skin. It is my favorite budget friendly cleanser and I recommend other cerave products for sure. Great product!

Product is very gentle and works great

I had no idea how drying all the cleansers I have ever used were! My skin feels so good and moisturized after using this. My skin feels quenched as if I have used a heavy cream except it is weightless. Amazing product!

Before I used this product I would get really dry in the winter and my skin would look horrible. I've been using this product for about a week now and my skin feels wonderful. I would definitely recommend this product to people who have a dry face

My skin didn't feel dry from using this but this felt like a lotion and it's so overhyped
Mb from Arizona
Still giving it a shot. But it makes my face tingle and doesn't feel like it actually cleanses my skin. I feel a waxy finish after using. Not the best- but I really want to like it.

I have been a huge fan of Cerave for years because it helped me so much to manage eczema breakouts all over. You can imagine the excitement when they released facial products.
I have used this cleaner for over 6months now and when i use a different cleanser, i notice my skin is not as hydrated. It has made a huge difference in the texture, hydration and overall appearance of my skin. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!

I got this for use post microblading. While it may work for post-procedure care, it does a terrible job of taking makeup off. I have to use something else to actually get my face clean. Will not repurchase.

Skin type: combination (dry cheeks and oily t zone), dehydrated, sensitive skin. I was looking for a simple cleanser for my morning routine but this one isn't it. I'm used to "soapy" cleansers so it was odd putting this on my face. I didn't mind that part. I could get used to it. The bad part is how it burned and irritated my skin after 2 uses. It burned when I washed my face with it and after wiping my face off (5 minutes later) I got inflamed and itchy patches on some parts of my face. To test and make sure it was the cleanser, I switched back to my old cleanser. 2 weeks later used cerave again and my skin became irritated like before. This could work wonders for others but it just wasn't for my skin type. Highly recommend those who want to try it to get the travel bottle first. That's what I did and I'm glad I didn't spend too much on it.

This product has saved my acne prone skin. I would only recommend this to people with DRY to normal skin because it doesn't strip your skin of it's moisture like the other cleansers. I also use the heavy Moisturizer and I love Cera Ve!
Patty from California
I purchased this thinking it would be a great addition to my religiously used CeraVe PM cream. This cleanser was a bust... I dislike it so much! instead of feeling clean, I felt a waxy-gunky film on my face that I had to scrub off afterwards with another cleanser. Horrible! I will be returning this for sure.
LS from NJ
I have combo skin with rosacea and eczema and this works very well for me. It doesn't irritate or strip my skin. It leaves it feeling soft and smooth but not greasy or oily at all.
V from Southern Pines NC
I would stick to this I got it cause it was on sale but I'm sticking to it helped my skin as soon as I started using it. I love it and I will not change from this product
Trose from Long Island, Ny
Love this product. Very light and clean

Great facial wash if you suffer from dry skin. I have eczema and this doesn't leave my skin feeling dried out after cleaning it.

I take acutane which is super harsh on your skin and dries it out. The Dermatologist said use a basic soap and this comes close to being very simple but it still cleans while keeping your skin so soft and moisturized (I'm guessing because of the ceramides?) Decent at taking off makeup too. I use their moisturizers right after too and my skin feels great, even in the winter and with harsh prescriptions.
