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 - 2 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!

    submitted byAshley - 2 years ago

Q: can you use this product every day? (morning and nighttime)

submitted by jasmin - 3 years ago
  • A: Yes this cleanser can be used in your morning and night skin care routine.

    submitted by - 3 years ago
  • A: Hi Jasmin- Thank you for your question on the CeraVe Renewing SA Facial Cleanser. CeraVe Renewing SA Cleanser provides gentle, non-irritating exfoliation without harsh microbeads or grains that can scratch or injure the skin. Suitable for the face and body as well as acne-prone and psoriasis-prone skin, this salicylic acid cleanser does more than just exfoliate skin—it softens and helps restore the skin’s natural barrier with three essential ceramides, hydrates with hyaluronic acid and soothes the skin with niacinamide. This formula is also non-comedogenic, fragrance-free and enriched with vitamin D for extra antioxidant protection.

Good for Breakouts

4 out of 5 stars
katieb608 - 17 days ago
originally posted on influenster.com
I keep this in my shower and use it as my face wash when I have breakouts/blemishes. It does a good job, in combination with some other products, at reducing blemishes quickly. It lathers well and a little goes a long way. The label claims non-drying, but this for sure dries my skin. Helpful for breakouts, not so helpful otherwise.

It’s okay, if you have sensitive skin don’t use this daily like I did or you will damage your skin barrier. Even though the SA percentage is low it isn’t suited for my sensitive skin.

Struggle to get rid of my blackheads

misaa3 - 21 days ago
originally posted on influenster.com
I’ve seen countless of videos saying that the solution to getting rid of blackheads is salicylic acid. I’ve used up half of the bottle and been very consistent with the use of this product but my blackheads persist. It’s a really good cleanser as I notice that my face has more breakouts when I don’t use it but it still won’t work against my blackheads.

Incredible value with 500ml SA Cleaser.

I love this cleaser so much. I use it for my face mostly but I also use it for my back and underarms as well. I have very oily face so this is perfect for me. Although for people with more dry skin and very sensitive skin should be careful using it too often. Especially when you're already using other exfoliating products like glycolic acid. I like use once every other day since I use other more powerful exfoliating products. Love the smell too personally despite being fragrance free. I highly recommend buying the 500ml or whatever the biggest version of this cleaser in the future for best value.

My teen son was struggling with acne and this was a last ditch effort to avoid the strong dermatologist treatment and all the purging/sensitivity that comes along with it. It did the trick! Literally a week later and almost clear skin. I used it on a whim and it’s been the best wash I’ve used (I’m 40 with highly sensitive dry combo skin)my skin is so soft and glows

Ivy Proffitt - 24 days ago
I liked how the cleanser looks and feels on my skin. It has a slightly sticky consistency that foams right away. It’s not greasy at all and after washing my face it has very little residue from the cleanser or oil left. Super nice packaging, and the pump works really well. Just make sure you know what size you’re getting, I didn’t check and it was smaller than I thought. Still a really good product.
