Cult favourite cleanser CeraVe is seeing a huge rise in popularity recently thanks to going viral on TikTok. But with 3 cleansers to choose from, it can be hard to know which Cerave cleanser is best for you and your skin type.
Here’s everything you need to know about the 3 different CeraVe cleansers, and which one is perfect for your skin type.
Here's which CeraVe Cleanser you should be using...
If you have normal to dry skin...
The OG CeraVe cleanser is for you.
This particular cleanser has always been a firm favourite with beauty influencers as it’s a gentle and soothing cleanser that leaves the skin hydrated.
Soothe and revitalise dry skin with CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser, a deeply hydrating makeup remover created with three essential ceramides.
Expertly sweeping away dirt, excess oil and impurities without tripping away moisture, the cleanser uses Hyaluronic Acid to strengthen and restore the natural barrier function for long-lasting hydration. Time-release technology ensures skin stays bright, clear and refreshed throughout the day and night.
Free from soap and fragrances. Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic.
If you have normal to oily skin...
CeraVe foaming hyaluronic acid non-drying cleanser for oily to normal skin is the one for you, if the name didn’t give it away.
Refresh your skin with CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser, a gentle makeup remover suitable for oily and sensitive skin types. The luxurious gel transforms into a weightless foam which sweeps away dirt, excess oil and impurities whilst maintaining the strength of the natural barrier function.
A potent blend of three essential ceramides and Hyaluronic Acid works to replenish vital hydration, whilst Niacinamide soothes any irritation. Expect a calm, clear and revitalised complexion.
This is also Fragrance-free and non-comedogenic (meaning it won’t block your pores)
If you suffer from breakouts and have textured skin...
The new CeraVe SA cleanser is for you.
Most people seem to be conflicted over getting the Normal to Oily skin cleanser and the SA cleanser. If you suffer from breakouts regularly, or have bumpy/textured skin the SA cleanser is a great choice for you.
Retexturise dry, bumpy, rough skin with derma-skincare brand CeraVe’s Smoothing Cleanser; a hydrating cleanser that swiftly removes oil, dirt and makeup while replenishing and reinforcing skin’s natural barrier with Hyaluronic Acid, a powerful ingredient that binds moisture to skin for long-lasting hydration.
A 0.5% concentration of Salicylic acid allows the cleansing formula to perform a chemical exfoliation, gently dissolving dead skin and pore-clogging impurities to reveal a smoothed surface, without disrupting skin’s microbiome.
Like all CeraVe formulations, the lightweight facial wash is powered by an exclusive combination of three scientifically-identified essential ceramides. A type of lipid, Ceramides are vital, naturally-occurring component of skin, responsible for drawing moisture in and locking irritants out. With age, ceramides deplete, which can lead to a water shortage causing signs of dehydration may lead to dryness and dullness.
This is also non-comedogenic, vegan and cruelty-free.
It’s also important to wear SPF when using acids. Check out our recommendations here.
