Brand Overview

CeraVe's debut body wash is one of the best on drugstore shelves. Hydrating Body Wash is an exceptional fragrance-free formula that's a standout for all skin types, but especially dry, sensitive skin.

Although this wash may seem pricy compared to others, you're getting a luxurious-feeling formula that produces a soft, creamy lather, then rinses clean, leaving skin feeling moisturized.

The combination of skin-identical ingredients (like ceramides), gentle cleansing agents and emollients leaves skin feeling noticeably softer and smoother from the first use.

There simply aren't any negatives to speak of here—Hydrating Body Wash is an all-around winner for its gentle ingredients and immediate results.

Pros:
  • Gentle formula for all skin types.
  • Leaves skin feeling soft and smooth.
  • Doesn't leave a residue on skin.
  • Contains skin-identical ingredients to soften.
  • A step above most body washes at the drugstore.
Cons:
  • None.
Jar Packaging: No

Cleanses and moisturizes while ceramides help restore the protective skin barrier.

CeraVe At-A-Glance

This expanding collection of skincare products keeps things gentle and effective with fragrance-free formulas, many of which are more state-of-the-art than any other product in its price range or pricier versions at the drugstore. In short, this line is a real find!

CeraVe uses a delivery system the company refers to as Multivesicular Emulsion Technology, which releases key ingredients such as ceramides and hyaluronic acid over a period of several hours. Although this technology is undoubtedly helpful, such time-delayed delivery systems aren't unique to CeraVe, and the fact remains that most of the ingredients they use are very helpful on their own, no matter what delivery system you use.

The important point is that ongoing, consistent use of this kind of moisturizer designed to repair the skin's barrier function will result in smoother, softer, healthier skin.

It is for these reasons that most CeraVe products are definitely worth considering, especially at this price. You'll find a options for moisturizing, cleansing, broad spectrum sun protection, and baby care.
