I’m so excited to review this prouduct! I’ve been using it consistently for about 4 months and I have to say it is one of my absolute FAVORITE “Drugstore Finds”. To give you a bit of background about my skin type it’s, well, a desert of dryness. My skin is perpetually dry no matter what I do because of the medicines that I take. All of this I will discuss in a future blog about my skin type and daily beauty regimen. But for now, let’s jump right into this review.
Recently, my aesthetician was pushing one of her products from the spa she works at… but, I wasn’t buying it (literally!). One thing I did take away from her sales pitch was that I needed a product with ceramides and Hyaluronic Acid.
What are ceramides?
Ceramides are one of three types of lipids, or fats, that play an essential role in retaining water in the skin. Studies show that ceramides help treat eczema and psoriasis, but also can be used by anyone with dry skin.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is an essential nutrient that allows the skin to hold on to water.
PROS: The BEAUTY about this cleanser is that it was developed by dermatologists, with sensitive skin in mind. It has no scent or coloring in it and is perfectly safe (and suggested) for use on a daily basis. It’s also non-comedogenic and non-drying.
CONS: The only con I can find with CeraVe is that it doesn’t reverse signs of aging. Bummer.
THE BOTTOM LINE: This product proves that you don’t need a luxury name brand to give you healthier, more resilient skin! At $11.99 for a 12 ounce bottle, this cleanser does the trick. CeraVe can help improve skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, that are characterized by excessive dryness. I highly recommend this cleanser!
