I am an african american woman and a dermatologist recommended Cerave to me three years ago and I first tried the foaming facial cleanser. I was not impressed by the results because like dozens of other cleansers I've used in the past it dried my skin and was very irritating. So I tried the hydratin...  see moreof Nicole's review

This Product is a great find! I am a very active person with rosacea and I suffer from red skin, flaky patches and terrible flare-ups. I have gone through my fair share of products and there isn't really anything on the market that cater to people with rosacea. My sister suggested I try Cerave and I...  see moreof Danielle's review

So glad I switched to this. It removes my makeup nicely and after a week, my skin is noticeably softer. I dont know if this is because it actually moisturizes or because it simply does not contain the usual cleanser ingredients which apparently cause skin to feel dry. Didnt even appreciate my skin w...  see moreof sun123's review

This is great! I like the regular cleanser for everyday, but if I get into some trouble with dryness, this always sorts me out. I tried this after some oil cleanser ravaged my face, and this had me sorted out within a couple of weeks. I keep some on hand just in case!  see moreof AJW1's review

I was really hoping to like this cleanser due to all the amazing reviews, but it's a no go for me. I have normal to dry skin, and have always needed to moisturize after washing my face, but this product took that to a new level. Not only did it not hydrate my face and made the texture around my face...  see moreof Kiki's review

I was searching for a hydrating facial cleanser for my SUPER dry skin when I stumbled upon this. All the reviews were so great so I was excited to give it a try. Unfortunately, my face is still as dry as ever using this cleanser. I'm not sure why it got such good reviews because to me it's like wash...  see moreof amf3689's review

I got a sample of this face wash with a purchase of the cereve pm face moisturizer. After using up all of the sample I had to repurchase. Absolutely love this stuff!! It leaves my skin feeling very clean but also very hydrated which I've found a lot of other cleansers leave me feeling quite dry.  see moreof SydneyA's review
