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 am always looking for products to help prevent break-outs. I am very loyal to the CeraVe brand (I own several of their moisturizers) and decided to try the Foaming Face Wash on a whim. Overall I was very impressed! The product works to keep my face clean and I also feel that it's prevented my breakouts.

        I was looking for a foaming facial cleanser and this is perfect. Only a little amount is needed and it foams up beautifully without drying out the skin. My skin is combination and sensitive and this is very gentle yet effective. It also has a slightly creamy, but not oily, feeling to it and feels very smooth on the skin. Highly recommend it!

              This product is a repeat buy for my family. It is great for young and old. You can use daily and it does not dry out your skin. If you have trouble skin this might not be for you but to maintain clean skin this is perfect.

              Comments about CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser, 12 fl oz:

              I've used many facial cleansers, ranging from drugstore to department store brands. The CeraVe foaming facial cleanser is definitely one of the best I've ever used. It's a great quality, non-smelly formula that leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth, and clean. I was absolutely amazed at the effectiveness of this cleanser when I first used it. I have combination skin and sometimes it's difficult to find a cleanser that works on all areas of my skin, but this one really works. One caveat for me was the packaging. The pump arrived broken from the rest of the bottle. I tried fixing it but it's still kind of funky. But overall, the product works very well.

                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.

                  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.

                  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.
