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.

The CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser is available at your local drugstore for $20 or online here (affiliate link).

CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30

Today I’m reviewing the CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 – specifically the normal to oily skin version.

I have sensitive skin, so this brand was recommended to me as something to try that would be gentle on my skin. I was having problems with my skin reacting to another brand of moisturizer, so I was in the market for a new kind. Trying a new skincare brand is something that makes me nervous because I never know how my skin will react to it.  So far though I’m really liking it and I’ve had zero reactions to it, which was a big relief.

First off, I like that it’s in a pump bottle. It makes it easier to get the exact amount out that I want. In addition I feel like it’s cleaner than a pot of moisturizer that I’d have to use my fingers to get it out. I also like that the bottle takes up little room on my bathroom counter. I think everyone is looking for more room in there.

I typically put it on after using cleanser as well as any time throughout the day that my face feels dry. My chin tends to get dry, so I frequently put it there and I feel like it really does help. I also like that it has broad spectrum SPF protection built into it. If I know I’m going to be spending the day in the sun I’ll put a stronger SPF sunscreen on top, but otherwise I like that moisturizer and sunscreen is in one step.

The CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 is only available in a 89 mL pump bottle. Mine has lasted me more than six months though, so I think it’s a great size. you also don’t need to use a lot – a little does a long way. It doesn’t take long to absorb into my skin, so it’s nice that this skincare step doesn’t take a lot of time.

It can be found at drugstores for around $20 or online here (affiliate link).
