[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] I’m a big fan of bar cleansers (I made my own after all :-)) so I was very interested to try the new CeraVe Hydrating Cleansing Bar. Ideally, it’s for normal to dry skin but I found the effect quite neutral – my skin felt neither dry nor hydrated after trying it which suits me fine – I don’t want my complexion dried out but I don’t expect a cleansing bar to do the job of a moisturiser.

CeraVe Hydrating Cleansing Bar

There’s no fragrance so if you’re sensitive (or even if you aren’t!) you can use it on any part of your body. I’d bill this much as I did with my own cleansing bar – an ‘everywhere’ bar. Surprisingly, it contains petroleum which again, isn’t something that bothers me at that low quantity. I don’t find it high foaming – again, no problem there – but it’s got a good ‘melt’ with warm water so immediately you feel you have a solution to work over your skin.

I’m honestly not sure how I’d feel about working this into my lashes (it claims to remove make-up) to get rid of mascara (and didn’t) but I certainly felt it was gently cleansing and removed make-up residue. All in all, this is a reliable bar for skin cleansing with the benefits of hyaluronic and ceramides (under-rated by the beauty industry other than Elizabeth Arden). I love the chunkiness of the bar and the absolute ease of use – portability makes this an ideal holiday product for cutting through SPF and salt and at £8.00 HERE I would regard it as an excellent budget option that does the job beautifully. Boots (where I’m linking to) has a CeraVe offer of 3 for 2 so if you have other things to stock up on, you’ll probably get this free :-).
