It's okay

After reading fantastic reviews, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this product! After using it for 2 weeks, I am not entirely sold or impressed by it. Firstly, even after 2 weeks of use, my skin still tingles slightly whenever I've used the product. I'm not sure why as there are no active ingredients used. The texture is definitely a win for me - reminds me of Glossier's Milky Jelly cleanser (but thinner in consistency). You'll definitely need to double cleanse with this cleanser for sure, if you are wearing make-up or SPF. It is not sufficient to properly cleanse face, with just this product. I have used an oil-based cleanser first to remove makeup/SPF, followed by this. The formulation is quite basic and isn't luxurious, but then again it isn't marketed to be. I will have to stick to my Fresh Soy Cleanser after trailing for 2 weeks.

I love this cleanser! It smooths the skin and super gentle. I use it once a day and my skin is so soft. I used to have flakey dry skin around the nose and irritation from using cleanser containing almond shells. So glad I was given the chance to try this products. I would recommend to use this more in winter if you have dry skin! It helps ! Should also use their moisturiser after cleanser to keep your face nice and moistured. It doesn’t have strong scent like most of cleansing products out there. I highly recommend for dry skin and combination. It is so far better than the oil one I had last time. More gentle and results shows in 3weeks after using!

Say yes !

I have always struggled when it comes to very dry skin, eczema and numerous amounts of cream and moisturiser just seem to aggregate the problem! Until now! So far, so good! I have been using this product consistently for a few weeks now and have noticed such a difference in my skin, it feels more hydrated. It’s light weight, non greasy formula makes it a blessing for my skin. Love the size of the bottle it’s handy for travel and also to keep at home, like the packaging, Overall a great product for me!

Good everyday cleanser

This is a good everyday cleanser for anyone to use. Great for my sensitive skin and eczema patches! It’s a good makeup remover if you wear a medium to light amount and a little goes a long way. Unlike other cleansers my face doesn’t feel dry and stripped after use and I don’t feel like I need to rush to quickly replenish my skin afterwards. It’s very similar to the Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser, just a bit thicker. Fantastic that it also doesn’t have any fragrance in it and the price point matches for sure.

Thoroughly hydrating Cleanser

The CeraVe hydrating cleanser is a fantastic product for my skin. I recently have joined some of the CeraVe skin online product event to understand the product range and was sent a few sachets to try for participating. One was this product and I have bought it at the chemist already! It is a lovely cleanser which has a great consistency (not too runny) and washes off extremely well leaving my skin feeling plump, clean and thoroughly hydrated. The price range for this product I feel is good on the pockets as you don't have to use a lot to feel the great effects it has on your skin. I would highly recommend for sensitive skin too as it doesn't have scent and moisturises your skin well.

It’s a yes from me!

It’s a yes from me!!! As someone who has suffered from dry eczema prone skin all my life this was great! It has no fragrance which was fantastic for my dry skin as most cleanser makes it sting. I will 100% recommend this product to those dry skin sufferers like me. After using this product for a full week I could feel that my skin felt more hydrated all the time, not just after my skin care routine. This is going to be in my everyday skin care indefinitely. Initially I was hesitant in trying this product due to my sensitive skin but since the Eczema Association Australia endorsed this product.

An affordable hero

I was lucky enough to trial this product as part of a recent Review Crew! The CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser is an everyday cleanser that promises to cleanse and refresh skin without over stripping. I love the super convenient 236ml pump bottle and the price is super affordable at $12.99 from Chemist Warehouse. I have been using the product morning and night for a few weeks and have found that my skin feels fresh and clean after use but not dry or stripped that has occured with some other brands. I also had no issues transitioning to using this product with no sensitivity or breakouts that can sometimes occur when switching to new brands or products. This product is a new staple for me - it's great quality for a very affordable price and does everything I need it to do.

Skincare staple

I have loved trialling this cleanser by CeraVe. I have normal - sensitive skin and this cleanser worked well and was super gentle in cleansing and nourishing my skin. I used this both morning and evening, and only needed 1 pump to cleanse my entire face. I did double cleanse on the occasions where I removed my makeup to get a deeper clean and remove any dirt or impurities from my pores, and I can happily say my skin felt hydrated after. What I love about this cleanser is it's free of fragrance and paraben free. This gives me confidience that it won't irritate my skin. I used this cleanser over the Christmas holiday period and it's an easy cleanser to travel with. The pump bottle comes with a clip that you can pop back around the pump section and it secures the pump in place so it won't leak - big plus for me! I highly recommend this cleanser and one I will continue to use and repurchase. It's a staple cleanser and one that won't let you down.

A staple cleanser

It’s a great basic cleanser especially if you have dry sensitive skin or your skin barrier is compromised. It doesn’t foam at all but removes all my make up. I do find it can leave a film on the skin after rinsing off which feels moisturising and added to how long my face felt moisturised throughout the day without breaking me out. I think I will keep this in my cleanser rotation as a good neutral option in between more active or targeted cleansers. I would even day to those with skin types on the normal to oily side to give it a go maybe start in the colder months as it would nourish the skin and help the skin barrier while letting more targeted skincare work on problem areas.

The Cera-Ve Hydrating Cleanser leaves my skin feeling soft, hydrated and cleansed. I love that a key ingredient is Hydrologic Acid, as I have been trying to make an effort to include this in my skin routine. This cleanser has done just that! Would highly recommend if you have dry skin! The cleanser acts as it’s own moisturiser. I have got my husband to use it too, and for someone who does not like to use many products, he really enjoys it and uses it every day. He also has sensitive skin and this hydrating cleanser works as a gem.

Fuss-Free but does the job

What a great cleanser for everyday use. The CerVe Hydrating Cleanser is what I like to call ‘fuss free’. It isn’t fancy and doesn’t promise to make you look like a different person, but it DOES cleanse really well, and also left my skin feeling soft and hydrated. It comes in a pump bottle which is hygienic and easy to use and the size of the bottle will mean the product will last a long time. I used the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser morning and night and my skin feels much cleaner and not tight or dry after using. This cleanser would be perfect for all skin types because it’s really gentle.

Everything you need in a cleanser!

The CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser is my fave. My skin is more on the dry, sensitive side and it loooves this cleanser! The cleanser is perfectly gentle yet effectively cleanses my skin and leaves it feeling soft, even soothed, afterwards. No taut/tight feeling like all the moisture in your face has been stripped - this cleanser is truly hydrating! I really like the creamy consistency and you don't need a lot to work it over your face. At this price point especially, it really is value for money! What more could you need in a cleanser? I highly recommend!

Couldn't ask for anything more!

This product does what it promises well, I really can't ask for anything more! It's not exactly moisturizin but it's definitely not stripping and cleanses well. It can remove light makeup well enough. The texture feels nice and I love that it is unscented. The pump works well, and a little goes a long way. Even with daily use I've barely made a dent in weeks! I also like that the bottle is see through to a certain extent so I can see how much I have left, and when I will need to repurchase. A pump is also more convenient and hygienic. I will definitely purchase again once it runs out, for the price I can't fault it!

Love love love!

I have very dry, rash and irritation prone, sensitive fair skin, so it is no easy feat to find skin products that work for me! I have been using this cleanser for the past month morning and night. This is an excellent, gentle, no fragrance cleanser. It moisturises my skin beautifully, removes makeup and washes the day away with ease. It is a smooth, gel-like texture in a fuss free easy to use pump pack. I really loathe cleansers that make my skin feel even dryer after use, so much so that I feel the need to replenish by lathering more and more products on to get it back to its natural oil level. This Cera Ve cleanser does not disappoint for a non-harsh cleanser which doesn’t strip all the natural oils from my skin. I will certainly purchase and continue to use for a long time!

Hydrated, No Tight Skin Feel!

My little sister has been talking about how great the CeraVe cleansers are, and I finally got the chance to try it myself. I was sent the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser to review, which I have been using every morning in the shower. It is creamy and non foaming and feels great on my face. Other cleansers leave me with that tight dry feeling, but not this one. It still feels hydrated, especially around the mouth where I get the most dryness. I then apply my normal moisturiser afterwards. I’ll probably get a few more months out of the bottle I have before I need to replace, which is reasonably priced. I will repurchase this product once it has run out.

Back to basics cleanser

I was impressed honestly, its a really great starting out cleanser for dry and sensitive skin types. I have eczema, with dry and flaky skin patches. It was an easy cleanser to use, no fragrance which is a must for me. I really enjoy having the no mess pump that ensures i dont use too much product. Apart from the basics of this cleanser- i would love to see any future additions to the range that combine this with other ingredients to appeal to an older market with say anti-aging properties? Overall I would recommend this to someone starting out a skincare journey that is easy on the budget as well.

Perfect cure for dry skin

After using this product for a few weeks, I've noticed less dryness and tightness in my face and décolletage area. Having sensitive skin, my face burns easily with most cleansers but this is so milky and gentle, it feels amazing and hasn't burned me at all. My skin has honestly never been softer or felt more hydrated and juicy, which is so exciting to say! I'd recommend this product to anyone with facial eczema, dry or sensitive skin, or anyone who wants a nice, gentle and effective cleanser. You won't be disappointed.

Perfect cleanser for dry sensitive skin!

I loved using this cleanser on my dry and sensitive skin! A little goes a long way as it foams up nicely when rubbing into your face. It doesn’t strip my dry skin of its natural oils and my face feels soft, fresh and clean after every use. I love that it’s so affordable and effective! It’s filled with hyaluronic acid and ceramides, my two favourite ingredients to see in skincare products. I love how accessible Cerave is to purchase, all chemist warehouses stock their brand! So many more Cerave products I need to try!

Best hydrating cleanser for sensitive skin

I absolutely loved this cleanser! I have very sensitive skin and I am acne prone. Some days my skin in extremely dry and feels like sand paper and others it is oily especially around my nose area. This cleanser was so gentle on my skin it didn't irritate it at all. It left my skin feeling plump and having a healthy dew feeling to it. I use it in both the AM and PM. I even gave it to my brother to use and he has sensitive skins and he had no irritations and found his skin felt so hydrated and healthy after using it too. I would 100% recommend this cleanser to others with sensitive skin. My skin now feels so hydrated and soft I love it!
