Vale mucho la pena

Tuve acné fungico en mi frente durante mucho tiempo y cuando lo empece a tratar con ac. glicolico de The ordinary y este limpiador definitivamente me ayudo muchisimo. Ya no tengo acné en la frente, pero durante la pandemia por el uso de cubrebocas comenzaron a salir granos en los cachetes en el cual el limpiador no hace mucha diferencia pero si los mantiene al minimo.

It works.

This has been my daily face wash for about a year now. I tend to use this at night, right before I go to bed when I'm about to shower. The wash comes out clear, and foams just a little bit when applied to the face with water. While it's quite hard for me to determine how it has affected things like acne, my face does not feel stripped after washing. It removes all residue makeup from the makeup remover beforehand, including things like leftover sunscreen. Overall, it works.

Not for dehydrated skin

I have dehydrated/combination skin that is very oily and bought this as a second step to my p.m. double cleansing after The Ordinary squalane cleanser. The CeraVe foaming cleansing gel turned out to be too drying for my combination/dehydrated skin, even if I use a good moisturizer afterwards. (Plus I see that the ingredient list contains fragrance but the smell is too "alcohol-y" for me- an unscented product would have been better imo.
I really wanted to like this cleanser but it made my skin feel like crinkled paper right after washing and even oilier than before throughout the day. I can't really say if it has improved or made my acne worse since I didn't see major changes over a 3-month use, so it is not worth the drying effect at all. I guess even if you don't have dehydrated or sensitive skin but "normal to oily" as stated, you should still be careful that the CeraVe foaming cleansing gel is not too drying otherwise it will worsen the oil production issue and be counterproductive.
