Q: Can this cleanser remove makeup?

submitted by Sarah - 3 years ago
  • A: Hi there Sarah, thanks for reaching out. Our Hydrating Facial Cleanser remove dirt, makeup and other debris.

  • A: it's not the best for makeup removal. it honestly depends on how much makeup you wear. waterproof makeup is difficult to remove with this cleanser. double cleansing with micellar water first is a great choice!

This product is super oily/ greasy feeling, like there is a thick film on your face after using it. I cannot use it alone to cleanse my face, I have to use it like its the first part of a double cleanse. This product might be good for someone with SUPER dry skin.

Hi There! Thank you for trying our CeraVe Face Wash, Hydrating Facial Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin. Check out our Foaming Facial Cleanser. A foaming gel face wash is ideal for removing excess oil, dirt, and makeup. When choosing a facial cleanser for normal to oily skin, it’s important to look for a formula that's gentle, won’t disrupt your skin’s natural protective barrier (which can leave skin feeling dry or tight), and contains ingredients that help maintain its moisture balance.

I can't believe that people have given this product the positive reviews it has. Using this is like smearing lotion on your face and then rinsing it off. My face might not feel "dry" after using it but it definitely does not feel clean. It does not remove eye makeup, concealer or foundation (as evidenced by it coming off on my towels or cotton pads AFTER having washed my face). If you like washing your face and then needing to immediately wash your face again with actual cleanser, then this is the product for you. I bought this and it just sits on my counter because I had to buy another product to actually clean my face.

Cerave face wash is great for the skin, delivering many benefits for an affordable price. It’s my new ‘go to’. This package was lost in the mail and I was pretty upset, but Target replaced my package (as well as a couple more items in the order) without question. exception, or hesitation. Top notch service is much appreciated. Thanks, Target!!

I have combination skin prone to blackheads and pollution. At first I chose this product based on good reviews, not knowing if it would suit my skin. Now I only use them! It takes me a couple of minutes in the morning to clean the skin of my face in circular motions, with a massage, and all day I feel fresh. skin is much clearer!

Sometimes all you need to make your skin look it’s best is use the simplest of products without all the frills. Don’t get me wrong, I love my luxe cleansers as much as the next girl, but this one does the job every. single. time, leaving my skin feeling squeaky clean without needing to go in with micellar water to take off any leftover makeup residue. I never have that issue with this cleanser and it never over-dries your skin. 10/10 solid and reliable.

Last year I had a really tough time with my skin. It got very irritated and dry and everything made it worse. I’ve been using this cream cleanser about a year now and what a difference. This did not irritate my skin AT ALL and honestly was the only cleanser I found that didn’t. It’s gentle and doesn’t foam up. The additives that create the foam can be irritating to sensitive skin. This was truly a godsend cleanser for me and I will always have it on hand.
