      Comments about CeraVe Renewing SA Cleanser for Normal Skin:

      This prodruct is great. It has salycylic acid which is great for fine lines and acne, but does not overdry the skin at all. I was having a small breakout and this helped clear me up. I have had problem skin all of my life and I have visited several dermatologists. This product line has been consistently been recommended by all of them.

      Comments about CeraVe Renewing SA Cleanser for Normal Skin:

      I have acne prone skin and acne marks. I was looking for a cleanser that wouldn't break me out since my skin is doing much better. BUT I would wake up with itty bitty white heads all over every morning. I stopped using it and the tiny white heads disappeared. BUT no new acne appeared, which was a plus.
      It doesn't leave you skin feeling dry, which I loved.

      My combo skin loves it!

      By Nicole L

      from Silverdale, WA

      Comments about CeraVe Renewing SA Cleanser for Normal Skin:

      I have an oily t-zone, somewhat dry cheeks & hormonal chin/jawline breakouts. I picked this up on a Friday, use it day/night daily & I love it. It's gentle for my dry cheeks & works on my oily t-zone. I feel like it really gets my skin clean. There's no smell which is a good thing; you don't really want strong perfume smells in your skincare. Can you really give a fair review for how this product works alone...not really. You have to accompany it with your routine. Following this wash with my scrub/toner/masks/moisturizer I have definitely noticed a difference in my skin & it's only been a few days. I would recommend this to the next person who shares my skin situation.

        I have very sensitive, dry skin and acne ( probably hormonal) mature skin. I can't use harsh exfoliating products without making things worse. This is perfect for a gentle exfoliating/ acne wash.

        Can be drying and irritating. Better for oily skin

        • Oily Skin

        Comments about CeraVe Renewing SA Cleanser for Normal Skin:

        I bought this because it was highly recommended by Paula Begoun as a good cleanser for combination skin. I do like that it has no fragrance, it foams a little bit, it gets my skin clean, it rinses completely, and my skin feels good right afterwards. However, I've been using it for about a week now and my cheeks have a constant burning/tingling feeling. I think it is just too drying for that area of my face. I'm pretty disappointed, but will continue to use it on my chin where I am prone to break outs. If you have oily skin, this would be a great product, but not so much for more "normal" type of skin (which is how I would classify my cheeks).

        Hormone related ingrown hair

        • Hyperpigmentation

        Comments about CeraVe Renewing SA Cleanser for Normal Skin:

        I have pretty normal skin. I have a hormone condition that causes me to grow lots of hair. Sometimes when I wax I have ingrown hair and this product helps me exfoliate them. It can be a little drying in some of the more sensitive areas but it's not irritating.

          I have used every skin care product under the sun and this is the only acne cleanser that doesn't make my skin feel tight and dry after using it. This has helped me get rid of black heads and white heads even after the first use. I am now getting compliments on my skin from random strangers. Hope Cerave never stops making this.

            Comments about CeraVe Renewing SA Cleanser for Normal Skin:

            In my 20's, I have battled very tiny under the skin bumps that always made my skin's texture look rough and bumpy, but the worst part was these were not "pimples", they were little bumps that looked like "chicken skin" that I was unable to extract. I hated them so bad. Being in the sunlight made me so insecure. That was until I found how awesome this cleanser/moisturizer regimen worked for me. Ever since I started using the Cera Ve SA Renewal cleanser and Cera Ve SA Renewal Moisturizer twice daily, morning and night, these little bumps have vanished. I always thought moisturizer would make my face more oily and worse, but I have now realized moisturizing on top of cleansing is KEY to smoother, healthier, clearer skin. Hope this helps someone else like it helped me! It leaves my face feeling so clean and soft. There is no fragrance, which makes me feel like it is even better for my skin. Good price too. I have no complaints.

                A:

                Hi Theresa! We recommend to use the SA Renewing Cleanser first, then using the SA Lotion as your moisturizer. The SA Cleanser gently cleanses and exfoliates while softening the skin. The lotion will soften and smooth rough and dry skin. Hope this helps!
