Cerave Hydrating Cream-to-foam Cleanser - Is It Really That Good

Welcome, Skintellectuals!

I’ve always thought that you shouldn’t have to pay an arm and a leg for good skincare and brands like Cerave just prove that. Cerave Hydrating Cream-to-foam Cleanser has just launched and its safe to say it will be hard to get your hands on this cleanser as its sold out everywhere across the world.

What is it?

Cerave Hydrating Cream-to-foam Cleanser is as it says on the bottle a cream to foam cleanser that leaves the skin feeling hydrated. I have to say i absolutely love this cleanser i feel like its even better than the original hydrating cleanser.

How do you use it?

Personally i use this as a cleanse in the PM, ive found that it works really well to remove both makeup and sunscreen without irritating your skin! I was actually pretty surprised at the fact that even though it claims to be foaming it really isn’t all that foaming.

Final Thoughts?

I freaking love this cleanser, it just warms my heart to see so many affordable brands out there that can help to democratise skincare. Luxury doesn’t always mean better and this cleanser is just the perfect example of that! I love that Cerave always adds ceramides and hyaluronic acid to their products because it honesty helps so much to maintain a healthy barrier.

    Pretty late to this review but I’ve recently been asked by a customer what I thought about this product and not being a user of it myself, its great to read your comments. Would it be possible to do an updated review at some point? Gives me something to sign-post people to when they ask.

    Thanks, and keep up the great work!
