CeraVe Hydrating cleansers are always a valuable addition to any wardrobe and unfortunately, price can sometimes be a prohibitive factor.

It is for this reason that consumers will frequently search for products which offer measurable results without breaking the proverbial bank. One example can be seen in CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser.

While it is indeed offered at rock-bottom pricing, will it provide the results that we have been looking for? Let us examine this question in greater detail by taking a look at a few key takeaway points so that you will able to make the most informed decision.


CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser contains a number of ingredients which are known to soften the skin over time. These are included (but not limited to) hyaluronic acid, ceramides and vegetable glycerin. Such all-natural additions are useful for those who might be slightly allergenic or who wish to avoid harsh chemicals.

The only major gripe that we have is that this wash has been known to remove mascara when applied. Unfortunately, such an observation could cause many women to disqualify it from their selection.

Our score: 80% out of 100%.

Ease of Use

Like most facial washes, CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser can be applied once in the morning and it will tend to last throughout the day with no issues such as running.

Once the wash is wiped away, some may smell a slight medicinal odour but this can generally be overlooked unless one is extremely sensitive. This effect can also be negated by the silky smooth feeling of the skin immediately after.

Our score: 75% out of 100%


The main issue that we have with CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser is how it is presented. Appearing as if it belongs within a hospital emergency room as opposed to a home, some consumers will be turned off by such an institutional design.

Although there is much more product contained within the packaging, we are left to wonder why designers did not opt for a more streamlined tube similar to those offered by Chanel and other competitors.

Our Verdict: 40% out of 100%

Value for Your Money

Although there may be some issues with this product, the fact that it is currently priced at just over £11 pounds cannot be overlooked. There are very few other face washes which are available at such an economical cost.

Our verdict: 95% out of 100%
