Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best gentle night face cleanser I never thought I’d switch to a bar cleanser to remove makeup and wash my fave at night but this is fabulous! It’s gentle, removes makeup and leaves skin moisturized and glowing. I use this at night and follow up with either the moisturizing lotion or cream depending on how my skin feels. In the morning I use the gentle hydrating cleanser and my skin looks great. I am 63 years old and my skin doesn’t look it at all. I have noticed many stores seem to be low on stock recently, I hope Cerave ramps up production due to high demand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too strong of a smell I have purchased two bars in the past and never had any issues with them. I LOVED it. Just bought a 3 pack so I didn't have to go back to the store so often and the smell is overpowering. Not sure if they have changed the scent? Nothing about the smell is natural at all. It smells like an old lady's perfume. The bars are also very clumpy so my kids end up getting big chunks of soap on their hands (didn't notice this before). After a week I just can't take the smell in our house and will be tossing the bars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleans off foundation makeup completely I’m very happy with this bar purchase. I used the liquid face cleanser and I liked it but needed to wash my face twice to get foundation makeup completely off. Now I just need to wash once and I see a difference using the bar soap and moisturizing after washing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh, so clean! My biggest fear about using bar soap was that it would leave residue on my skin. This rinses so cleanly from my face and body. And as a bonus, it is the perfect travel cleanser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this I am a sucker for skincare products...you name it, Ive tried it. I always have clogged pores no matter what Cleanser, toner, moisturizer or oil I use on my face. Recently everything i use cause irritation..even so called fragrance free products. My face has been so red and scaly I was miserable. If I put foundation on it looked awful on my skin, so I couldnt hide how awful it looked. I knew my moms dermatologist told her to use Cerave cleansing bar and moisturizer and nothing else. Shes 88 and her skin is more even toned than mine and I am 68! So i started out with the cleansing bar and moisturizer and now use the eye cream and serum. My face isnt red any longer and its also flake free. I havent used foundation because I just want to see how good Cerave can make my face look. So far its working better than far more expensive brands I have tried. Still hoping to see improvement in my pores, but its only been less than 2 weeks, so I am hopeful. I am a believer in Cerave!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this hydrating bar!!! My skin tends to be dry and sensitive. It’s hard to find a body wash that not only smells good, but one that actually locks in moisture and works! I’m usually a fan of liquid body wash, but I started using this on my body and I fell in love! This is a great bar for your body. It not only cleans well, but it locks in moisture and doesn’t dry out your skin. I really enjoy the smell of this bar too. I highly recommend all Cerave products, but this one is my favorite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best cleansing bar yet! Sounds like you bought Ivory soap jackie27 (a year ago). This soap doesn't dry our skin, leaves it feeling clean and refreshed. There is a very very very light scent to it and I love it! This is our new soap!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow!! This is incredible. I’ve never felt anything like this... I have very sensitive dry skin and I can feel other soap bars stripping my skin and making it more dry, since this is soap and fragrance free it doesn’t do that. It literally feels like you’re putting lotion on as you use it. It’s very calming and moisturizing. I’m not sure about value for money, it’s expensive compared to other soap bars but knowing how much money I’ve wasted trying to buy every product under the sun trying to alleviate my dry skin and eczema so having this work is worth the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leaves my skin super soft I use this product as hand and body soap. After literally one use I felt the difference in my skin. This soap leaves my skin really soft and smooth, doesn't leave any film or residue. 100% recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Turning my washcloths gray I got your response to my review. I do not use the hydrating bar soap on my face. I use make up remover, wash my face with a face cleanser and dry it with a towel. I only use you bar soap when I take a bath or shower. The new bar of soap I purchased has been turning my washcloths gray in the center where I lather the soap. I make sure I rinse the cloth out. This never happened before. You must have changed some ingredient in the soap to cause this to happen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bar Soap out there Try it once and you'll be hooked! Share it with your friends and they'll love you for it. This is moisturizing and rinses clean. It's also the best makeup remover I've used in a long time. No black mascara marks under my eyes after a gentle wash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hydrating Cleanser/Bar Best for Handwashing This cleanser is what my dermatologist recommended for cleaning my hands. In comparison to other soaps, I can testify it is far superior and leaves my hands feeling moisturized instead of dry. The facial cleanser also works the same way! It feels so nice on my face and hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best cleansing bar This is my favorite cleansing bar. It's unscented. Works great. I use this in conjunction with the body wash. Every other bar of "soap" has been banished from my house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I cannot recommend this product enough! My acne flares up around my forehead and cheeks but when I use this product, my skin is almost completely clear. One thing I do recommend doing though is putting the bar of soap directly on your skin and then gently massaging it in. This will probably be the only product i'll use on my face for the rest of my life tbh.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Have you changed the scent? I have used your hydrating cleanser bar for years and loved it. The last ones I bought smell different... I don't like it nor does my husband. The ones before had a clean, not over powering smell.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love the lather but cannot tolerate the smell I purchased two bars hoping to find a soap that would not leave me dry and itching. It did the job, but unfortunately the smell is so bad that I just cannot use it (and that 'fragrance' lingered on my skin all day - yuck). Perhaps I simply got two bad bars, but I doubt I will try it again to find out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product I've been using this cleanser for 2 years and I love it. Started using it because bar cleansers are eco-friendly (no plastic packaging) and got hooked. I use it to remove my makeup (even waterproof) and it does its job of cleansing my face. Used to react to a bunch of different products before trying this one. Plus its really cheap and lasts a while (4-5 months per bar)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible smell I loved all Cerave products that I tried.. except this one. I thought Cerave was supposed to be fragrance free but the scent to this product is really strong and horrible. Once I got out of the shower, the smell lingered on my skin, so I went back in with another soap. This one goes right in the trash.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Smells terrible! I bought this soap hoping it would moisturize better than Dove. But it smells so unpleasant that I will throw it away, even though it’s fairly expensive, without finding out whether it moisturizes well. Totally chemical smell!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleanse so Gently!!! I purchased CeraVe bar soap because my children have eczema. From the first day they stop complaining about having itchy skin coming out of the bath. We now all use the bar soap... it also 'melts' slower than the other brand we used before. LOVE IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the body! I use this as a body wash and it works great! I have pretty sensitive skin and in the winter months I get dry, itchy patches and this helps prevent them. It’s also completely non-irritating for me.
