When we catch celebrities using affordable beauty products, we can’t help but pay attention. Recently, Olivia Wilde posted an Instagram story —as reported by People — where she gave us a peek at her skin-care regimen. In the mix is a bestselling cleanser beloved by shoppers and dermatologists. The crowd-pleaser in question is CeraVe’s Hydrating Facial Cleanser. It’s an affordable option that, as its name promises, cleanses your skin while leaving it hydrated, sans any greasy finish. And right now, this Fourth of July weekend, you can score it on sale for $15 (down from $18).


Over 84,000 face-saving reviewers have given this killer cleanser a perfect rating.

CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser gives your skin a deep cleanse without stripping it of essential vitamins and nutrients — it’s packed with hyaluronic acid, ceramides and glycerin, which hydrate the skin. The wash is non-foaming, but it has a lotion-like texture that smooths the skin as you wash. Oh, and, thanks to its gentle formula, It’s suitable for all skin types — fragrance- and paraben-free, and noncomedogenic. No wonder dermatologists have bestowed their collective stamp of approval — it’s been certified by the National Eczema Association.

Gives skin relief

“Irritated skin relief,” one shopper said. “Six months ago, my previous facial wash started to irritate my sensitive skin. My dermatologist suggested CeraVe, and I selected one for my aging dryish skin type. I really love this facial wash. It’s very gentle and doesn’t make my skin irritated and red.”

It’s good for all skin types, even sensitive ones

“Perfect for my rosacea!” exclaimed this five-star fan. “My dermatologist recommended this for my sensitive, reddened face. I’ve been using exclusively using this on my face for years, since that recommendation. After some time, I noticed my redness lessened more and more. “

Another happy user shared: “I have used this cleanser on my face twice a day for years. It’s very good for my sensitive skin. No rashes, dryness or breakouts. My face feels soft — no need for moisturizer, even though I’m in my 50s. Highly recommend.”

Derm recommended

“Me and my family have visited the gamut of derms, from high-end when we had good insurance to more affordable for over 20 years,” this reviewer reported. “Between teen acne, rashes, mole removals, advice for anti-aging, etc., we’ve been there. One product that every derm we’ve seen along the way consistently recommended was Cerave cleansers. Plus all derms advise against any cleansers that have scent added to them. This is an affordable and effective face wash that won’t dry your skin. You think that more expensive products are better, but that’s not always true!”


Your new go-to for staying fresh-faced all summer long.
