i've been looking on the market for an acne scar treatment that isn't totally overpriced and there i am in the store and i find this. i didn't get my hope too high because this is the first acne scar treatment i have used. i have struggled with my acne since puberty until now (17), it wasn't just a pimple here and there my skin was struggling, i would cover it up with pounds of makeup, pick, get super dry etc. recently by the miracle of god i started to clear up which was very exciting for me but the reality of being left with minor texture problems and very prominent acne scars trickled around my cheeks and forehead set in :( anyways, i started using this product after a gentle wash, witch hazel toner, this serum, and then a gentle moisturizer and even freebies the first night i noticed a difference!!!!! i've been using it ever since and my skin looks incredible :))) this product is proof you don't need to spend half of your paycheck to get a quality product.
Consumers deserve to know the percentage of retinol that is in this product in order to make a more informed decision. I was gifted this product and it was fine. I did not experience any ill effects. However, I will NOT purchase this myself until Ceravé discloses the percentage of retinol in this product.

This was recommended by my dermatologist and I've been hooked ever since. When I have a breakout, it dries up the pimples before they get larger and calms the redness if I pop them. Gives a good clean feeling without being too drying.

I have oily skin and have always struggled with hormonal acne, and i have an impressive amount of acne scars, blackheads, and overall problematic skin. One thing i must note about this product that is often misunderstood, this WILL make you break out. This is a resurfacing product, meaning it will bring bacteria/buildup/gunk thats deep in your skin up to the surface to get rid of it. In a sense your skin will get worse before it gets better, but trust the process. This is called "Skin Purging" and is a very common process that happens with products that work. Ive used this product for months, maybe about 4 to 5 months, and i had skin purging for about 1 month until my skin finally calmed down.
All in all, your skin gets worse before it gets better, and be sure to wear sunscreen and gentle calming products on your skin along with this. This product is very gentle feeling on your skin but trust the process! I highly recommend, especially for those naggy pimples that arent poppable but still visible and irritating to look at.

Gave me such bad cystic acne along my jaw and chin, so so painful. Made my existing acne worse. So drying
I really like how my skin feels after using it

After YEARS of hearing dermatologists say Cervantes is the best for skin care line I decided to buy the kit and give it a go. I used the face wash for sensitive skin in combination with this & it worked great! The AM cream didn't work for me though.

Ive used this product 9 months ago for a month and im still suffering consequences. It made my eyes swell up when i used it. And my skin barrier has been broken since then.
THIS gave me:
- Dry itchy skin
- whiteheads/ sebum plugs — new ones EVERY DAY
- Cystic Acne
- Acne scars that stay red/ doest heal.
- Burns when i apply absolutely anything to my face
i just want to cry. ive heen trying to repair my skin but its taking so long. i want my skin back.

This makes me face feel so smooth. I've definitely seen some changes in my skin already. It's a little bit drying so you would be need to follow up with a moisturizer. I knocked off a star after rinsing my face, it burns my eyes for a few minutes.

I get more hormonal acne as a 42 yr old with combo/dry leaning skin.. it's a large tube , little goes a long way, won't strip skin or make it feel tight.
however , I made a wee mistake one night washing my makeup off and tried to use this to remove my eye makeup... DO NOT do that or put on your eyes period! it will sting bad if you do! but that's on me!

I deal with cystic acne for about a week a month, and this effectively minimizes & makes them painless! I use it on an exfoliating pad and follow up with the cera-ve acne spot gel and then the cera-ve night time moisturizer (even during the day) and then sunscreen! Super super effective just note that it may dry your skin a tad- which is why I use the night time cream :)
Ashleigh from Pennsylvania
This is THE best acne wash ever. It is phenomenal and paired with cerave mousturizing body lotion, (which is what I use on my face since I was literally 15 years old) it is perfect. Non-greasy and clean feeling. Don't let the consistency of other cerave washes deter you from this.

Love this product. The difference it's made in my pores is night and day !

this was the first retinol product i ever used & i think it is a great for anyone new to retinoids. it has been very effective in clearing up my acne & hyperpigmentation! (when used consistently for 3+ months)

It's important to note that benzoyl peroxide brings all of the gunk from clogged pores to the surface. So what several people have described as breaking out worse could be purging - a good thing which means its working. I haven't experienced my clothes being bleached. I saw a complete change in oil production and minimal breakouts in about 5 weeks. I cycled in niacinamide to brighten, fragrance free cream, and of course a sunscreen! Dont just start using it morning and night, cycle it in to combat a long purging spell. I definitely recommend this and any other BP cleanser for acne/oil control!

i like it

I went to my dermatologist for my break outs and it actually does work it brings out your redness down and it calms your acne which means it goes down, of course you have to put it on day and night NO exposure to the sun, it will not make the product affect unless you buy a sunscreen. Anyways its a good product. 🥰
