Cerave Foaming Facial Cleanser Review

Hello everybody,

Today, I bring to you the review of a product which is one of the highly raved about and recommended skin care products by beauty gurus and critics alike.  It’s the CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser.

Cerave Foaming Facial Cleanser

Product Description:

Make CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser a vital part of your daily skin care regimen. Ideal for normal to dry skin types. Use daily morning and night to gently remove dirt, oil and makeup without disrupting the skin’s natural protective barrier. Never drying, ceramides help moisturize, restore and maintain the skin’s natural protective function. Its unique, patented MVE formulation releases ceramides and other essential ingredients throughout the day, so they penetrate deep into skin to hydrate and nourish. While hyaluronic acid (a humectant) attracts moisture to the top layer of the skin, ensuring skin remains hydrated after washing.

My Experience with Cerave Foaming Facial Cleanser:

I have been very impressed with the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser in the past.  Even though I loved that product very much and my dry skin was very grateful for it in the winters, I did start to find it too heavy to use in the summers. Hence I turned to the next bestseller in CeraVe cleanser line which is this Foaming Facial Cleanser for normal to oily skin. My skin tends to be normal during the summers and I do not face as much dryness and flakiness like I do in the winters and I can say that with my skin type, this cleanser suits me very well.

The big plastic bottle is very sturdy and I am a big fan of the hygienic pump dispenser which dispenses controlled amount of product, avoiding any wastage.


The cleanser is a transparent runny liquid and a dime-sized amount is enough to lather up and clean the whole face. Hence a bottle this size will last me a couple of months which makes it very cost efficient.  The consistency and the how the product performs is very similar if not identical to the Cetaphil Cleanser which I also have used and loved in the past.  The cleanser itself is very gentle on the skin yet it cleans very efficiently. There is not a hint of residue left behind and face feels squeaky clean but not dry. I can use this 2-3 times a day and still it will not strip my skin. This is exactly what I look for in my daily cleanser.  It leaves my skin healthy, balanced and super clean.

I also think that this product will work great for people with oily and acne-prone skin which is the skin type of my husband and he enjoys using this product too and it has not caused him any issues at all. This cleanser will also suit sensitive skin.

This cleanser can be used to remove makeup at the end of the day as long as the makeup is not waterproof and long wearing. For that, I do take it off with a makeup remover and follow up with this cleanser to get rid of any residue left behind.

Also, I like the fact that it does contain beneficial ingredients like hyaluronic acid and ceramides which help repair and maintain skin barrier.


This cleanser is completely fragrance free.  The only con I would list for this product is that it does contain parabens.
