By now, everyone is always going to be OBSESSED with CeraVe. This skincare brand took the world by storm as it quickly went viral on TikTok. When we say the skincare community was shook with what CeraVe could offer, we are not kidding at all. Especially for those with acne-prone skin, CeraVe became the go-to skincare brand for consumers and skincare enthusiasts alike to seek out! Its products also garnered quite the attention and love from the Kings and Queens of skincare Youtubers. Hyram alone, might have caused a worldwide sell out when he introduced CeraVe on his channel! But, since everyone’s skin is different, there are always good and bad sides to every skincare. So, Beauty Insider is here to give you a full-on review on a few of their beloved products!

CeraVe Skincare

Although CeraVe recently popped off thanks to TikTok and Skincare Youtubers, they have actually been around since 2005! Experts found that the common thread linking skin concerns such as eczema, dry skin, acne and psoriasis was a skin barrier that had been compromised. Thus, CeraVe got to work with dermatologists to develop a full range of skincare products. Containing three essential ceramides that have the benefit to help the natural protective barrier of your skin. What’s more, is that their line of skincare products are the only, consisting of the unique blend of three essential ceramides. It also uses a formulation that combines MultiVesicular Emulsion Technology (MVE) along with ceramides that are identical to your skin. No matter your skin type, CeraVe is the number 1 skincare moisturising brand recommended by dermatologists.  

Cerave Moisturizing Cream

We don’t care if your skin is oily, or dry. You need to moisturise! Just because your skin is oily, doesn’t let you off the hook from using moisturisers and hydrating your skin. This fragrance-free Moisturizing Cream from CeraVe can not only repair your skin’s protective barrier, but provide moisturisation as well. As far as texture goes, this moisturiser is on the thicker side. So, we suggest that those with dry skin give it a try, while those with oily skin should stick to lighter formulations. But if your skin is on the super sensitive side, do take caution as it might just not sit well with your skin! 

Look out for red flags such as skin irritation, redness and itchiness when using. This lets you know immediately that the product is just not right for your skin. It may also take up to a month before results and irritations show. So be on the lookout! It doesn’t leave a greasy feeling after application and can also double as a body and hand cream. So, don’t throw it out if it doesn’t suit your skin! Test it on your hands and body, as it might work fine there! Thus, you can definitely use it as a hand cream to moisturise your hands whenever they get dry. 

Why we love it:

  • All-day moisturisation
  • No greasy residue
  • Suitable for dry & sensitive skin
  • Healthier and supple skin

Price: RM45 – RM140 (depending on size)

CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser

The CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser is so popular that even Emma Chamberlain falls victim to having it in her skincare routine! This cleanser is also Hyram approved, validating its benefits even more. If your skin is super dry, a good hydrating cleanser is exactly what you need to quench its thirst. It’s also not extremely stripping, so you don’t have to worry about your face feeling thigh or too dry. But, if you give this a try and feel that it doesn’t really do anything for your skin, it’s totally fine! It could mean that your skin is already perfectly hydrated! 

With a gentle formulation, its ingredient list is also packed with benefits to help restore your skin barrier. Keep in mind that this is a non-foaming cleanser and has a slightly opaque gel-like texture. Therefore, it will wash off pretty easily and leave your skin feeling hydrated. 

Why we love it:

  • Gentle on the skin
  • Hydrating 
  • Fragrance-free 
  • Suitable for dry to normal skin types

Price: RM45  – RM128 (depending on size)

CeraVe Renewing SA Cleanser

Not sure about you guys, but we were introduced to the CeraVe Renewing SA Cleanser by Hyram himself! Once his video gushing about this cleanser dropped, the product quickly sold out worldwide! So, it was kind of difficult to get your hands on it the first few months. This cleanser is gentle yet effective for those with oily and acne-prone skin. Its formula is packed with surfactants, glycerin and niacinamide to help calm down irritation and redness. Salicylic Acid is also the go-to ingredient for acne-prone skin as it can help with getting rid of dead skin cells hiding deep within your skin. With such a bomb ingredient list, it’s definitely something you should try out! Besides that, it also helps exfoliate your skin and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth. If you’ve got a few bumps and acne on your body, this cleanser is suitable as well! 

Why we love it:

  • Rich in Vitamin D 
  • Non-comedogenic formula
  • Fragrance-free
  • Exfoliates the skin

Price: RM135

CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser

If your skin gets super oily, then the CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser might be your next best bet! It’s also a great product for men as well, since we all need a reminder that EVERYONE needs a good skincare routine. It’s also suitable for those with combination skin types and is a gel-type cleanser. But once you add water to it, it starts foaming up instantly! Since it doesn’t over strip your skin, it’s a great cleanser to balance out your skin. The presence of hyaluronic acid and ceramide complexes works together to balance your skin. Its formula is also quite gentle, so it would work well with sensitive skin types as well. It also doubles as a makeup remover and refreshes your skin. It’s low-irritant and doesn’t leave your skin feeling tight. 

Why we love it:

  • Suitable for normal to oily skin
  • Deeply cleanses your skin
  • Gets rid of excess oil
  • Non-comedogenic

Price: RM39 – RM122 (depending on size)
