The original CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser is best for normal to dry skin, and this Foaming Facial Cleanser, which is best for normal to oily skin, is a welcome addition to the line. It’s a gentle, water-soluble cleanser that ranks among the best available at any price. The formula produces a slight lather, removes makeup easily, and rinses without a hint of residue. The inclusion of skin-identical ingredients is a nice touch, although these state-of-the-art ingredients are best when included in products meant to be left on the skin. Foaming Facial Cleanser is an excellent option for those with oily, sensitive skin, too, including those struggling with rosacea. An added bonus is that the built-in pump dispenser is easy to use.

Brand Overview

CeraVe At-A-Glance

This expanding collection of skincare products keeps things gentle and effective with fragrance-free formulas, many of which are more state-of-the-art than any other product in its price range or pricier versions at the drugstore. In short, this line is a real find!

CeraVe uses a delivery system the company refers to as Multivesicular Emulsion Technology, which releases key ingredients such as ceramides and hyaluronic acid over a period of several hours. Although this technology is undoubtedly helpful, such time-delayed delivery systems aren't unique to CeraVe, and the fact remains that most of the ingredients they use are very helpful on their own, no matter what delivery system you use.

The important point is that ongoing, consistent use of this kind of moisturizer designed to repair the skin's barrier function will result in smoother, softer, healthier skin.

It is for these reasons that most CeraVe products are definitely worth considering, especially at this price. You'll find a options for moisturizing, cleansing, broad spectrum sun protection, and baby care.
