My current routine consists of cleansing oil and facial wash only as I’m going through Topical Steroid Withdrawal (TSW). I must say my skin is getting better when I started using less products. I reviewed CeraVe’s Cleanser Bar before and it worked for my skin’s sensitivity. I wanted to give this brand another shot so I browsed their website. I checked all the ingredients list of their products I’m interested in. After checking, I’m thinking that the Foaming Facial Cleanser would be the best fit for me.
A foaming facial cleanser is ideal for removing excess oil, dirt and makeup but it’s important to choose a formula that won’t disrupt the skin’s natural protective barrier. It’s also beneficial to choose a gentle cleanser with ingredients that help maintain moisture balance. CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser features ceramides hyaluronic acid and niacinamide to help reinforce the skin’s barrier, attract hydration and soothe the skin.

The texture is a bit liquidy so you’ll only need a small amount. It gives enough lather for me. Enough to remove oil and make me feel clean. This is for normal to oily skin. This works well although I have combination skin. T-zone is oily and cheeks are dry and flakey. It’s not too drying for my cheeks. I’m using this cleanser for two months already. I also noticed that this cleanser helps to push out black/whiteheads easier with a blackhead remover tool. I use less pressure which minimizes the risk of getting hyperpigmentation. Best of all, it doesn’t irritate me even though my skin condition is hypersensitive. It doesn’t interfere with the healing of my TSW.
The only down side is it’s not yet available locally. I ordered mine online. Thank you online shopping! 😉 They have an official Amazon store. I’ll try to order on Amazon and hopefully I can share my shopping experience with you all.
