Expertly formulated by dermatologists to help treat blemishes, acne and breakouts, the CeraVe SA Cleanser's star ingredient is salicylic acid, a BHA (beta hydroxy acid) that works to exfoliate the pores, decongesting and clearing the skin.

The fragrance-free cleanser can be used daily without disrupting the skin barrier or leaving the skin feeling tight and dry as it contains three essential ceramides, which give instant and lasting hydration to leave skin feeling super soft.

Even those with sensitive and dry skin rave about its gentle, hardworking and hydrating formula, hailing it the 'best cleanser'. Others describe the CeraVe SA Smoothing Cleanser as 'amazing stuff' and 'extremely effective' for smoothing and clearing skin.

'I kid you not, but this stuff has cleared all my acne up within two weeks,' one reviewer shared. 'My skin is lovely and soft and clear of blemishes.

'I've also had a lot of compliments, too, saying I'm glowing and looking really healthy. I've struggled with acne for 25 years, and I will use this all the time now.'

'Clear skin, three weeks going strong,' another user explained. 'My skin is completely at the mercy of my hormonal cycle, but I've been using this product for three weeks now, and my skin has been consistently clear - it's amazing.

'Normally, I exfoliate and moisturise, but I still get bad skin in spite of this. I've been using this as an intermediate step, and my skin looks and feels great!'

A third raved: 'THE HOLY GRAIL. Buy it! This has annihilated blackheads and spots from face. I have clear skin.'

CeraVe's SA Smoothing Cleanser is also favoured among skincare experts, including consultant dermatologist Dr Alexis Granite.

'This formula includes salicylic acid, one of the most effective ingredients for treating acne alongside ceramides, niacinamide to soothe and hyaluronic acid for a hit of hydration,' explains Dr Granite.

'If we are not cleansing, we're essentially allowing build-up on the skin, which can open up a whole range of issues.

'Even if you don't wear makeup, you still need to remove other products which your skin comes into contact with from moisturisers to SPF as well as daily pollutants, dirt, oils and sweat.'

She added: 'Build-up of these toxins can result in everything from lack of luminosity to clogged pores, dry, irritated skin, breakouts and even acne.'
