    My story: 36 year old woman, no wrinkles, few fine lines under eyes, dry patches, oily T-zone.

    I have been on a year long search for a gentle yet effective cleanser. I figured I owed it to my skin since I use retinol based products and glycolic acid as preventive measures against the ageing process. Anyone who's used these products in combination can tell you that they will often cause dryness, redness, and peeling. Well, this cleanser has calmed my skin down 100%! Believe me, I've tried every cleanser in the book, including Cetaphil. This puts Cetaphil to shame. I've been using it for a little over a week and the difference in the condition of my skin is unbelievable. No greasy feeling, just clean, soft, supple skin. Redness is gone. I highly recommend it!

    If you have soft water, this product will work better because the small amount of suds and lather will go farther. With hard water, you will have to keep pumping more into your bath pouf. Very similar to Cetaphil cleanser in texture and lather action. If just used for face, it will be great no matter your water condition. But if you use it over your whole body like me....it may not be your best choice.

    I loved the previous formula that foamed. It really felt like it was cleaning my skin and moisturizing it at the same time. This new formula almost has a cold cream effect. Can't tell if it is really cleaning.

        Comments about CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser, Normal to Dry, 12 fl oz:

        This cleanser was recommended by an M.D. aesthetician over the high priced chic products sold in her office. I've been using it for a couple of weeks so don't know long-term effects, but I already like it a lot. When I first applied it I thought it was going to leave a greasy film because even a small amount went on thick and creamy. I was pleasantly surprised to find it rinsed off easily and leaves no residual product on my skin, but it does leave the skin feeling soft and supple. It also cleans well, removing makeup, skin care products, and facial oils without stripping the skin of its natural lubricant.

          This is my go to facial cleanser during the winter months and sometimes during warm months. This is the perfect lotion to use with my prescription acne medications that tend to dry my skin. This cleanser doesn't leave my face greasy and thoroughly cleans makeup residue (after using make up wipes of course). Perfect for sensitive normal to dry skin.

                There was no foaming acting when you use this cleaner so I felt like i wasnt cleaning very much. Based on the reviews and the generally good impression people have with cereve, I gave this a try but I wasn't drawn to it as much as i thought i would

                      I feel like people don't understand this product, then give it a bad review. It is HYDRATING. Therefore, it does not contain ingredients that cause products to lather/foam which typically dry out skin. I don't use this to completely remove makeup, I remove my face and eye makeup with a wipe then eye makeup remover. I go over my eyes with this when I'm washing my face and it removes any excess makeup the wipe and remover didn't get. It is important you understand what you bought before you review it!

                      I have eczema and sensitive skin. After discovering this cleanser and the CeraVe lotion, I'm basically cured and eczema free! Seriously a life saver. Even my tiny 1 year old niece who has eczema uses the baby version and her skin cleared up. The only con....it does not suds up, so you use a lot more in the shower on your bath pouf. Wish it came in a bigger bottle. The foaming version of this dries my skin out, so other eczema sufferers....be weary of the foaming CeraVe cleanser.

                          I agree this product does not lather, but it really does a great job of shaving my legs and leaving them silky smooth with never a nick or cut. I use the Venus razor which I like also.
