Absolutely adore! Super gentle cleanser that doesn't leave my skin feeling dry at all. Would not recommend to remove makeup - I use mineral oil as a first cleanse and then this.

This Is It Chief

Been using for years...never bothers my sensitive skin. A lillll pricey, but worth it. It's also been helpful since starting accutane.

Great for Sensitive Skin!
After searching for a product that I could use a cleanser for my very sensitive skin, I finally settled down with this product! It's not foamy, smells kind of strange, and doesn't give a particular "clean" feel, but it works very well with keeping my acne at bay. I would only recommend this product if your skin is very sensitive to products, though, because it isn't a very powerful cleanser that most acne-suffers are used to using in their daily regimens.

Cerave products
I use the hydrating cleanser in the colder months and the foaming cleanser during the warmer months . When i tell you cerave products are my holy grails they are the only things that do not irritate my skin . I have combination skin before i found cerave i had soooooo many skin issues redness dryness oily everywhere i tried everything so many dermatologists visits and trying so many products. some of these products would burn my skin make it really dry or just make things worse,but i have never had any issues with cerave. I totally recommend cerave to anyone who is fighting with acne.

Gentle cleanser perfect for my skin. Doesn't remove makeup, so remove makeup prior to cleansing or double cleanse

Gives Your Skin a Break
I use Proactiv to treat my acne, but it can really dry out your skin over time. CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser followed by CeraVe PM Moisturizer is perfect to use every second or third wash to minimize any dryness or irritation. This combo really gives your skin a break.

Great Gentle Cleanser.
I have combination/oily skin with dry patches on my cheeks. I like using this in the morning to cleanse my skin because it effectively removes all the built up oil from sleeping while keeping my skin hydrated looking. It does have a lotion feel to it which turns a lot of people off, but you get used to it after a few days.

Absolutely In Love!
I absolutely love this cleanser!!! I bought it when I ran out of the Acne.org cleanser. What I didn't know was that I was going to keep using it totally replacing that cleanser. It leaves my face extremely clean without over drying, I love the thick consistency, and how gentle it is on my skin. I've also noticed how clear my skin has been using this cleanser in combination with my Acne.org benzoyl peroxide and AHA moisturizer. I have oily/combination skin which leans more on the oily side, and I'm not having any of the breakout issues as the previous reviewers. Overall, my skin has totally cleared up!!!! This cleanser is a staple in regimen for sure!!!

My favorite cleanser for my oily skin
I have very oily skin and suffer from cystic acne and this is the only cleanser that doesn't dry my skin out and make it feel tight. I will even use it with my clarisonic every now and then to exfoliate.
