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.

I liked this face wash for about a month!! Until the problems started, my lips got extremely dry and almost burned. And i started noticing my clothes bleaching, and extreme dryness. I wish they would of put a warning on the front instead of in the instructions. This product ruined one of my favorite shirts so be sure to wear clothes you don't care if they get ruined. And don't use everyday!!!

This caused the worst acne I have ever had. It's been weeks and I am still trying to undo what I did

After less than a week of using my skin is visibly clearer and more even toned. Finally something to give me hope in dealing with this sudden resurgence of acne at the age of 36. Be sure to use white towels! Benzoyl peroxide will discolor them.

Love this wash. I suffer from back acne and ever since I purchased this it has made my back acne minimize.

I literally got this 2 weeks ago and my acne has almost completely cleared. I also had enlarged pores and blackheads, and now they are barely visible. This stuff is actually amazing. I have tried everything on the face of this earth I swear, but THIS is where it's at. I don't get the bad reviews. Please buy this if you have: Blackheads, enlarged pores, and acne!

Pretty good cleanser. It's meant for clearing acne but it hasn't really had an effect on my skin. Not a big fan of the smell either.

I like this cleanser so far. It is definitely helping reduce my acne, though it is a bit drying/irritating. I probably need to find a better moisturizer to use it with though. I will say, the name of it is misleading because this product does not "foam" at all. But it's a nice cleanser that seems to be helping my acne, and I think I am having better results/less irritation using a cleanser with BP as opposed to a leave on lotion. The price point seems a little high for the amount of product but it's not too bad. I also don't love the packaging, because tubes tend to get water logged in the shower between the tube and the cap. Overall, I am liking this and plan to continue using and will likely repurchase.

Loveeee it but loved it more when it was half the price last year. It was so nice to finally find a face wash that worked for less than $10. Luckily it lasts me a couple months.

I had cystic acne during my teens and most of my 20's. I spent thousands of dollars in Dermatologist and other treatments. My acne was mostly in my nose that left me with deep scars. The last dermatologist I visited recommended CeraVe Products and I have used them for the past 3 or 4 years, mainly the face wash and face lotion. After 2 pregnancies my skin has taken a toll so I have more attention into my face. I use this product combined with CeraVe PM face lotion and I am very happy with the results! I combine with other CeraVe products rotating during the week.

I have fairly sensitive, acne prone skin. I have been using this product every night for over six months and I have noticed huge changes in my skin texture and tone. Old acne scars are fading and my skin stays clear! I still get the occasional hormonal acne on my chin, but I haven't had any acne on my forehead or nose since I started using this. It is gentle enough that I can use it with the La Roche siacylic acid toner or the La Roche benzoyl peroxide treatment and I don't have any stinging or redness! I use it nightly and the only con is that it is incredibly hard to tell how much is left in the bottle.

Jules from Seattle
This is the second retinol product ive tried and I love it! The first time i tried retinol, I messed up my moisture barrier and my skin was scaly and bumpy for two months.
I was scared to try retinol again but was recommended this particular product for its gentleness and it worked! After a few weeks of usage my skin is a lot more healthy

I have combination skin and this product does not dry out your skin badly at all. Also this dries into your skin very quickly and makes your skin soft. It did in fact clear up my acne marks :)

I got it when I was supposed to but when I wanted to use it, it wouldn't come out. I've even flipped it and hit the bottom to try to get it to the top and it still didn't do anything. I don't know what to do I want to use it to see if it'll work because my skin randomly broke out

I have tried a lot of different things for hormonal acne - I'm on two different prescriptions for it but my dermatologist recommended I try this and I have had clear skin for the first time in years ever since.

After my topical BP stained all my clothes and sheets, I went looking for a wash instead. I use this on my chest and shoulders almost daily (whenever I shower). It has really improved my body acne and I rarely have any breakouts. I use on my face occasionally when my hormonal acne flares, and it's beneficial, but can be pretty drying. I repurchase this regularly!
grave from merced, ca
i got this in last efforts to try to get rid of my stubborn acne and this stuff is really effective. within the first week i noticed a big difference and even when im using a different cleanser my acne doesnt come back. the only thing is i would recommend only using once a day for people with dry skin as i had dry patches from using twice a day, other than that i highly recommend!!!
