Almost 50 yrs old and struggled with moderate+ acne my entire life, had bought this for my teenager and it sat on the bathroom counter for awhile not being used. I finally tried it having run out of something else, and this cleared my acne (for the very most part) within a matter of days, having tried so many things in the past. Can be drying at first depending on your skin type. Leaves my cheeks a bit flushed but now I have some color in my cheeks/face, not a bad thing or irritating. Helps with blackheads, whiteheads, pores, shine. Try it!

Ok LOVE love this product. I use this everyday as the second cleanser in my nighttime routine. Using it as a second cleanser leaves my skin feeling soft and not too dried out. I love the idea of a creamy cleanser as it feels gentle on my sensitive skin. I really like CeraVe products in general but they hit the ball out of the park with this one. Also because of the creamy texture I feel like I don’t need to use as much product so a bottle can last forever, which I know us skin care babes (and our pockets) appreciate!!

I just started using this face wash and it has seriously worked wonders for my acne. It’s obviously not a cure all but it definitely helps. I would say to make sure you buy a moisturizer because it can be a little drying.
