Q: Hello, Is this product good for combo skin?

submitted by Brooke O - 3 years ago
  • A: Yes! It's recommended for combination skin

    submitted by - 3 years ago
  • A: Yes but don't overdo it! I have combo skin and I use this 2-3x per week in the mornings. Love this cleanser.

    submitted byJenn - 2 years ago
  • A: Hi Brooke O Thank you for your question the CeraVe Renewing SA Cleanser. For combination skin we would suggest trying the CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser. Thank you for choosing CeraVe!

Q: How much Salicylic Acid does this contain? Label should show %, usually 1% or 2%. This is important to me. Thanks.

submitted by Blublood - 6 years ago
  • A: This is the info from CeraVe - "This product is a facial cleanser which contains 2% salicylic acid; it is comparable to other over-the-counter anti-acne face washes, though this product does not specifically claim to be anti-acne."

    submitted byTricia - 3 years ago
  • A: The reason the label doesn't show how much Salicylic Acid this contains is because 1) the ingredient is pretty far down the list, meaning it only contains a small, insubstantial amount (probably less than 1%) and 2) Salicylic Acid is better as a leave-on exfoliant. In a cleanser, it is rinsed off before it can begin to work, and in this case, the pH is outside the ideal range to be effective. This is a good cleanser, especially for oily skin, but not for exfoliating purposes or for anyone looking for the benefits of salicylic acid. You'll need to buy a separate product for that.

Q: I have very sensitive skin, and an oily t-spot. Would this be a good facial wash to try? I've tried the CeraVe foaming facial wash, but it only made my skin burn with no results.

submitted by Riley - 3 years ago
  • A: Hey friend I have lived this. There is a good chance your natural skin barrier needs to heal before you use these kinds of products. Try the moisturizing wash and the moisturizing cream for two months and a good sensitive spf. Give your skin a chance to heal and rebuild the barrier. Your skin will rebalance and then you can lean into more "harsh" products. This is what I was told to do from a dear friend who is an esthetician. Seriously saved my skin. Such a huge difference! Good luck!

I love that it is scent free and doesn’t cause dryness like some facial cleaners do. I feel like it is gentle on my face and removes the dirt and oils that causes my mini breakouts. I tried many facials washes and this is my top 5 that I like.

Cleared lots of my clogged pores and helped my skin become clearer and spots fade. Make sure u double cleanse before using this because using actives on a dirty face will make it tougher for the cleanser actives to work on your skin. Also I use it AM & PM and take breaks if im using a retinol.
