I use this product 2 times a day. I'm in my mid 50's and have large pores, sensitive and blemish prone skin.

This cleanser leaves my skin soft and moisturized but not greasy. It gets my skin clean but doesn't make it feel dry. It rinses off throughly.

This is the best cleanser I've ever used. I wish I had found it years ago and am glad to have it now. I won't be using anything else. Thank you CeraVe!

Please be careful with this product! I have problems acne and excema. My skin is also very sensitive. My dermatologist started me using the Cerave line. It worked like a dream! There was only the hydrating cleanser at that time. Later I was having a acne breakout and I thought I would try the new foaming cleanser. It did not burn or sting my skin, and it did not dry out my skin, so I thought it would work out fine. But after a few days I developed a fine rash on my face. I stopped using the foaming cleanser and went back to the hydrating cleanser and the rash went away. This cleanser is not for everyone. I am not sure who should use it but it irritated my skin. Be careful if you have sensitive skin! I know that Cerave is a good line. It has done wonders for my skin and the hydrating cleanser has never harmed my skin in any way. It just leaves it fresh and clean. The moisturizer leaves it soft,smooth, and soothed. Talk to your dermatologist about which cleanser is right for your skin type and skin problems.

    Comments about CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser, 12 fl oz:

    I have sensitive skin after using several products like Olay, Estee, Lancome, Merle Norman and others there was always problems. My doctor recommended this product. I was amazed at the price ........so much cheaper than the other products. I felt a difference in one day and saw a difference with in three days. I have been using these products for about 4 months. I use the Cleanser, PM mositur at night and AM moistur in the day and sometimes on top of the AM I use Color Science powder.

      I have been using accutane, and this is a great face wash for anyone with acne! It does not burn at all. Once my course of accutane is over I will still be using this face wash.

      Cera Ve covers all the bases

      Comments about CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser, 12 fl oz:

      I use both of the Cera Ve cleansers and prefer the hydrating version for the dryer cold months and the foaming one when it's hot and humid. Both are great products for the price as they clean away makeup well without stripping my skin. I have combo, somewhat sensitive skin and these cleansers are among the best I've found over many years of skincare purchases.

        Comments about CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser, 12 fl oz:

        I'm really pleased with this purchase! I decided to try CeraVe because it is gentle and dermatologists recommend it for acne-prone skin. I have been dealing with an acne-flare up and many blackheads and whiteheads for a few months so I was trying to find a new routine. The CeraVe cleanser feels very gentle on my skin, leaves it feeling clean but not stripped and dry. My face is also typically very red and sensitive and this doesn't aggravate the redness at all and leaves my skin feeling softer than my old standby, Clean & Clear Foaming Facial Cleanser. I like that this one has Hyaluronic Acid in it. It alone wasn't going to take care of my acne flare-up, but I wanted a nice gentle cleanser to use with some other gentle acne treatments. The combo has really helped.

        All in all I'm very pleased with it and I'll probably re-purchase it when I run out (though it should last me a good long while!).

          Comments about CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser, 12 fl oz:

          I had extremely high hopes for this cleanser since I love the nighttime moisturizing lotion. I used this for a few days and each day and I would have new breakouts coming through. I wanted to stick it out and see if my skin would adjust to it, but being that I have to leave the house, I didn't want to be seen like that. It seems very thick and heavy, not very foamy. I have combination skin that is not overly sensitive, but I will break out if I use the wrong products. I know this does not claim to treat acne, but clearly states it will not clog pores or cause breakouts. I went back to my original Neutrogenia face wash and was completely clear again in two days. I was looking for something a little more gentle, especially in the winter, but this definitely wasn't it. Too bad since this isn't inexpensive and now I have a huge bottle of it!

            Comments about CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser, 12 fl oz:

            My dermatologist recommends the CeraVe brand in moisturizers, lotions, and cleansers. So, I decided to give the foaming facial cleanser a try. The face wash worked well without drying my skin, it removed my makeup nicely (even waterproof mascara), and I liked that it has no particular perfumy smell. I've used many brands of facial cleansers, both high end and drugstore brands, and some don't remove makeup and some leave my skin feeling tight and dry or not really very clean (I have combination skin). Overall, I think this one does a great job on my sensitive, acne-prone skin without causing any irritation.

              I use this every night with my Clarisonic. I have dry skin, but I hate using cleansers that are creamy and don't give me the feeling of really getting all the junk off of my face from the day. This cleanser foams and definitely makes my skin feel clean, yet it doesn't dry it out and make it feel squeaky like a lot of foaming cleansers do. It is a great balance, and perfect for use on sensitive skin.

                Great cleanser - I have oily skin and sometimes overwash and dry my skin out making it worse. This product is gentle and cleanses good. I use it and sometimes follow by using a neutragena salcylic face pad, or use it in the morning and use Oxy Benzoyl Peroxide wash at night. Going to start using this cerave cleanser more, makes skin soft and clean.

                  I have tried many cleansers for my combination skin including very high end brands. I thought I would try Cerave after researching it. It is highly recommended by dermatologists and beauty advisors. Also, many great reviews by consumers. Well, I can honestly say I like it better than anything else I have ever used. It cleanses my skin, removing even eye makeup very gently. It leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated. I sometimes experience mild acne but not while using this cleanser. I also bought for my teenage granddaughters. We all love it!

                  CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser

                   – Washing your face twice daily is an important part of your skincare routine, and it can help you remove dirt, excess oil, and germs, as well as residue from cosmetics. Of course, unless you use the right type of skin cleanser, you might end up drying out and irritating your skin in the process. CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser is specially formulated for people with normal to oily skin. This non-irritating product can help remove contaminants without disrupting the moisture barrier that keeps skin healthy.

                  Adding CeraVe Foaming Cleanser to Your Skincare Regimen



                  When you have normal to oily skin, you might be worried about the potential for skin care products to cause blemishes, but CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser is specifically designed with your skin type in mind. This non-comedogenic product won't clog pores, but rather uses a combination of ceramides and hyaluronic acid to help provide healthy moisture. As a result, the product can help eliminate the excess oil that causes your skin to shine without disrupting the protective lipid layer. CeraVe was developed by dermatologists and many doctors recommend using this product before your prescription or over-the-counter acne treatment. Talk to your healthcare provider about the possibility of adding CeraVe products to your skincare routine.

                  CeraVe History and Philosophy



                  A division of Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc., the CeraVe brand was created in 2005. Formulated by leading dermatologists and scientists determined to come up with a line of skin care products that would help strengthen and repair skin, CeraVe incorporates unique ingredients like fatty esters, cholesterol, and ceramides. Products include moisturizing lotions and creams in addition to facial cleansers. You can choose the best products for you based on your skin type. The brand has been approved by the National Eczema Association, and its products may be able to complement your ongoing treatment for conditions like psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis, and acne when indicated.
