CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser

Today I’m sharing my thoughts on the CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser.

CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser

I first tried this cleanser because I was having a skin reaction to something that I was using. As a result I tried switching out all the products I was using at the time to try to figure out what it was that was causing the trouble. In the end I never did figure out the culprit.

CeraVe was a brand that was recommended to me by multiple people for being gentle on skin and good for sensitive skin. I read reviews online that also said the same – that it was one of the few things that worked for people with sensitive skin. I found that those recommendations were right on.

Less than one pump of CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser was enough to wash my face. I apply it to my wet face, and it lathers up quite nicely. It washes off without leaving anything – it feels like all the dirt, oil, and makeup comes off. I didn’t have to scrub either to feel like my face was clean either. It also didn’t leave my skin feeling tight like some cleansers have in the past.

I was very happy that I didn’t have any reactions to it despite my sensitive skin. If you also struggle with sensitive skin I would suggest giving CeraVe products a try. I’ve also used other products from this line and I’ve really liked all of them so far.

Needless to say, this is definitely a cleanser that I’ll be buying again. It’s gentle on my sensitive skin but also gets my face clean from oil and makeup.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Cleanser

Today I’m reviewing the Aveeno Positively Radiant Cleanser. 

Aveeno Positively Radiant Cleanser

Before I get into this review I thought I’d give you a bit of an idea about my skin. I have sensitive combination skin. I sometimes have reactions to skincare and makeup causing redness. I tend to be oily through my nose and forehead and dry on my chin and cheeks. Yeah, I have really fun skin.

This has been my go to cleanser for years. I seem to have pretty good luck with Aveeno products not causing reactions with my sensitive skin, so I’ve used them quite a bit over the last few years. While I definitely have used other cleansers as well, I always seem to come back to this one.

I typically only wash my face once per day at night before going to bed. If I wash it more than that the dryness on my chin and cheeks gets dramatically worse. I don’t have any problems with the oil getting out of control with just the one wash per day, which I’m grateful for. As a result of using the cleanser just once every day, I’ve found that this bottle will last me a few months.

Just 1 pump is enough product to wash my face. I find that this cleanser lathers up nicely. It also doesn’t have an overpowering scent, which is nice because I find scents can cause my skin to react. It cleans my face without making it feel dry. In fact, my skin feels pretty soft after I’m done. I feel like I’ve gotten all of my makeup off as well as any dirt and oil from the day.

Per their website, the Aveeno Positively Radiant Cleanser contains Active Naturals Total Soy Complex, which improves tone, texture, dullness, blotchiness, and brown spots. While I don’t have problems with brown spots (yet), I do have some blotchiness that it hasn’t dealt with, not that I was really expecting it to though.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Cleanser is available at your local drugstore for $9 or online here (affiliate link).
