CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser at DermStore

CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser. I have really dry, temperamental skin, and this works well for me. It takes off makeup well. I keep a number of white washcloths for washing my face. I put the cleanser all over my face, and take a fresh washcloth, wet it , and rinse with that. Then I put the washcloth in the towel hamper. (I prefer rinsing with water.)

I also use the CeraVe moisturizers for my face, and I don't have the problems with ecxema on my face, that I have with ecxema elsewhere.

I buy my Cleanser at Walgreens.

I like using the above cleanser. It never leaves a tight or dry feeling on my skin. You can find their line at most drugstores, including Wal-Mart.
I am currently in a research study for roceasa and they have me on that cleaners and lotion. Because of my severe roceasa I am in the same condition of the OP. and this has really helped. I do not know if I am on the actual med or placebo but CeraVe has worked for me.

I personally use Neutrogena facial bar and it is an orange color and I get it at my local grocery store and it is not that costly and lasts weeks even using it daily . I really like it .

I like Clinique products. They are the only line that doesn't irritate my skin. They have a variety of cleansers, depending on your type of skin. Check out their website

I have rosacea and VERY reactive skin -- and CeraVe is what works for me. Takes off makeup cleanly (I don't wear much at all).

Years ago my dermatologist suggested Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. We've been using it ever since. It keeps my teenage boys skin clear, and I love it because it helps balance out by combination skin (without it, I am dry in some places and oily in others, but as long as I wash twice a day with Cetaphil, I'm fine). You rub a small bit of the lotion onto your dry face, then what I like to do is hop in the shower and wash it off, but you can also just wash it off over the sink and pat gently dry with a clean washcloth.

Make sure you do the Gentle Skin Cleanser formula and not daily facial cleanser. I mistakenly bought the facial cleanser once and got home and hated it! I thought they had changed the formula. It was clear and sudsy and smelled bad. Then I googled and realized I'd bought the wrong kind.

This is what you want, the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser:

NOT this one:

Do you see how similar those bottles look? Drives me nuts. Just be careful and make sure you get the Gentle Skin Cleanser, NOT the daily facial cleanser.

I'm currently using Lush 9-5 Cleanser, but I also like "say yes to" carrots/blueberries/etc which you can get at Whole Foods and occasionally Target. I've used Murad in the past and liked that too.

I can't recommend this book strongly enough. It's saved me a fortune, and made my life so simple...after I took the test and found out what I needed was PONDS LOL (certain NON FOAMING products). Along the lines of the simple Cetaphil, too. What a savings not buying my former fav Shiseido.

Anyway, take the "test" and they'll categorize your skin into a "type" and recommend products including sunscreen. High end and low end. And it explains why and the logic/chemistry behind it. Lots about rosacea, too.

I just bought a new Neutrogena Sunscreen and after TWO applications I had a tremendous outbreak and I NEVER EVER have that EVER. I'm never changing products again!

Can any of you folks suggest a substitute? I need something that has no soap at all (no SLS, etc.), and won't give me a rash.

I'm currently using baby shampoo, but it is too drying.

Use organic coconut oil, it cleanses, moisturizes, and offers many other benefits as well.
