Hello Irie People! I’m writing a review today of one of my current fave, the CeraVe Facial Cleanser. This post isn’t sponsored, just sharing as it’s really quite good!
CeraVe Facial Cleanser
It’s the CeraVe Facial Cleaner, the foaming one to be exact. I found out about it watching Claire Sulmers‘ snapchat one day. She described it as a good option for keeping acne at bay and so I ran to pick it up and give it a try because I’m troubled with hormonal acne every month. Not much can help with that but at least you can try to minimise the breakout, amirite??? Her skin also looks similar to mine so I thought it was worth the shot. It wouldn’t be the first time I bought skincare based on what my fave bloggers/vloggers recommended and most have turned out well.
I liked that the ingredients included hyaluronic acid and ceramides. These are all the things I’ve been researching lately to help me get and maintain a clear complexion. I can be a bit patchy in some places while quite oily in others and was hoping for the best. According to their description:
- Unique formula with three essential ceramides (1, 3, 6-II) that cleanses and removes oil without disrupting the skincare barrier
- Formulated with hyaluronic acid to help retain skin’s natural moisture and niacinamide to help calm skin.
- Foaming action gently refreshes
- Fragrance free, non-comedogenic, non-drying and non-irritating
- Ideal for normal to oily skin.
I’m all in! Even though it says foaming, it doesn’t foam up much at all which I don’t mind. It does have the slightest of tingle right after which makes me know that the acid is working. It also tends to leave my patchy areas right around my mouth sort of dry, so it will be essential to follow up with your favourite moisturiser. It does however do a very good job of cleaning, making me feel as if my skin is truly refreshed, ready for my serum and moisturiser. I love to use it at night to remove all the gunk from the day that has landed on my face.
Best Drugstore Brand
It’s interesting to note that the CeraVe brand of cleansers were put through a rigorous test against others for their makeup removal properties especially. The particular cleanser that made the cut was the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser. This one seems to do the job just as well but is much better at keeping moisture locked into the skin and so was named best drugstore brand of facial cleanser! It will be next on my purchase list when my foaming facial cleanser is done.
Have you ever tried this cleanser before? What was your experience? If not, what’s your current fave?
