The Best CeraVe Cleansers For Every Skin Type

Cleansing should always be the first step in your morning and evening skincare routine. It’s your chance to clear away oil, makeup, and grime from your pores and leave your skin clear and prepped for what’s to come. If you’ve never tried a CeraVe cleanser, then you’re missing out. 

Formulated with dermatologists on hand, CeraVe are known (and loved) for creating simple formulas that really make a difference to your skin, no matter what skin type you have, thanks to their formulas enriched with ceramides (hello healthy skin barrier).

If you’re anything like us, picking a cleanser used to be a simple task, and we would just grab the first one we saw, claiming it would clean and clear our skin, but not anymore, thanks to CeraVe. 

With a cleanser for literally every single skin type on their roster, we aren’t lying when we say there is genuinely something for everyone.

For Dry Skin

Dry skin, take notes. You need the CeraVe Hydrating Foaming Oil Cleanser on your skincare shelf. When it comes to skincare, oil prevents the evaporation of water from the skin’s surface, which is why this foaming oil cleanser is our #1 recommendation for dry skin. Enriched with 3 essential ceramides, glycerin, hyaluronic acid, and squalane, this cleanser removes dirt and impurities from the skin while maintaining the skin barrier, minus any greasy residue.

For oily skin

Got oily skin? You need a cleanser that’s going to reduce the production of sebum, while keeping your skin balanced and your pores unclogged. Sounds like you need the CeraVe Foaming Cleanser. With this foaming gel cleanser, you can say goodbye to excess oil, dirt, and makeup, and hello to a moisturised and balanced complexion, after every cleanse. 

For sensitive skin

Suffering with sensitivity? Get some relief with the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser. Developed with dermatologists, this gentle, non-foaming gel formula cleanses the skin to remove excess makeup and dirt, while retaining natural moisture thanks to the blend of three essential ceramides. Hydration hero hyaluronic acid also makes an appearance to keep skin nourished and happy, without leaving the skin feeling dry, tight, and sensitive.

For Acne-Prone skin

Struggling with breakouts? Reach for CeraVe’s SA Smoothing Cleanser. Designed to help remove oil, dirt, and makeup without compromising the skin barrier, this smoothing cleanser uses salicylic acid (acne-prone skin’s BFF) to also exfoliate the skin gently, reducing rough and bumpy skin texture. 

For combination

Combination skin, listen up. The CeraVe Hydrating Cream-To-Foam Cleanser belongs in your skincare routine. Soft and gentle, this cream cleanser transforms into a foam when worked into the skin, releasing ceramides, amino acids, and hyaluronic acid into the skin, to lock in moisture and maintain the skin barrier.
