When a couple of years ago, the famous skincare expert Paula Begoun,  joined Oprah Winfrey to discuss the topic of facial cleansers, this one came out as the best. (And NO, I will not mention those expensive ones). Their conclusion was that less expensive ones perform equally well (or even better).


This one by CERAVE came out as one of the best, and that’s no surprise to me. As you know, I like a good cleanser and of all beauty products, it’s probably the category I test and review most. This one is truly inexpensive and effective.

It’s mild, creamy-but-non-greasy and has a texture in between a non foaming gel and a cream. It dissolves in water without any effort, so it’s a great choice for those of you who like to splash.It’s also definitely lighter than a “standard” cleansing milk or cream, so if you can’t find your product in this category, but do like my “please don’t use a foam” advise, give this one a try if you like light textures.

All skins, from very dry to oily, will benefit from this cleanser. It’s gentle, hydrating and rebalancing thanks tot he HYALURONIC ACID (moisture binder) and CERAMIDES (barrier repair). A little goes a long way which makes this product a TRUE BARGAIN. It’s available in 3 different sizes, going from “travel size” to “family size”.

I’m just not sure it will be effective if you wear a long-lasting or very covering make-up, so you’ll have to try this out for yourself. Anyway, use this a a second or morning cleanser and use a balm/oil first in case you wear (heavy) make-up or sunblock (which you should).

Skin type:all, sensitive included !


Positive points:gentle, lightweight, inexpensive.

Negative points:may not remove heavy make-up.

Available from pharmacies and internet stores.
