If you’re familiar with the saying “don’t judge a book by its cover,” then you’ll know not to judge a cleanser by its packaging. While the drug store-esque aesthetic of CeraVe products may deter some buyers from purchasing the viral TikTok products, the formulations may have you thinking twice.

Coming from a line that was developed with dermatologists, CeraVe’s products contain three essential ceramides to give even the most sensitive skin a moisturized and hydrated glow.

While the brand is a hit among Gen Z and TikTok users, one of their products is also a top choice among Amazon Canada shoppers: the Foaming Facial Cleanser.

What is it?

If you’re looking for a gentle cleanser meant for sensitive skin, then this Foaming Facial Cleanser just might be for you. Infused with CeraVe’s signature ceramides, this formulation is packed with anti-redness and anti-inflammatory properties, while hyaluronic acid keeps you looking and feeling moisturized — all without clogging pores.

Simply wet your skin with lukewarm water, gently massage the gel-to-foam formula in a circular motion across your face, then rinse. Use it as a daily cleanser or incorporate it into your night routine.

Regardless of when you use it, the foaming facial moisturizer is a must for normal to oily skin. And for under $20, this affordable cleanser truly delivers the bang for your buck.

What others are saying

Coming in with a 4.7-star rating from more than 5,000 reviewers, it's easy to see why shoppers are loving this affordable cleanser.

One five-star reviewer reported being “so impressed" after the cleanser left their "face feeling clean and refreshed."

Many other reviewers also applaud the cleanser for its “foaming abilities,” without feeling like their skin is being stripped of oils.

Another five-star reviewer was also “on the fence" when they bought it, but have no grown to "absolutely love" the product. They praised it for being "gentle yet effective.”

And while the CeraVe cleanser is a fan favourite amongst most Amazon shoppers, some reviewers have mentioned that the pump is a little difficult to release, while others have mentioned that the product didn’t completely help with their acne flare ups.

The verdict

Sometimes beauty can be on a budget— especially in the case of CeraVe's Foaming Facial Cleanser. While it may not be the fanciest in its aesthetic, the proof is in its ingredients.

However, it’s important to note, that if you suffer from dryness, it might be best to check out other products from the CeraVe line that are meant more for your skin type: like the Hydrating Facial Cleanser.
