If you bought every skincare product that came recommended then you’d need a much bigger bathroom cabinet, not to mention bank account, so siphoning out what’s worth buying and what isn’t can be tricky. Do you go for the latest hot product or do you stick to what a dermatologist is likely to recommend you?

Well, as it turns out, you can do both. CeraVe’s Hydrating Cleanser was developed by dermatologists and has topped skincare charts since its launch.

Suitable for normal to dry skin, this hydrating and soothing lotion can actually be applied to your body as well as your face and is specially formulated for people with sensitive skin. So, if you’re prone to irritation - which, let’s face it, is most of us during the cold winter months - then this is about to be your new best friend.

Not only does it remove dirt and oil, but it also penetrates the layers of your skin and so continues to provide hydration from within long after you’ve left the bathroom.

It’s non-foaming, it isn’t sticky and it’s hypoallergenic and fragrance-free. In short, it’s the closest you can get to seeing a skin expert, without actually paying for an appointment.

And it isn’t just dermatologists who have been raving about this affordable cleanser, it’s amassed 250 Amazon reviews, too.

Acne-sufferers, in particular, have praised the hydrating skincare, as one emphatic customer began her review: “After over a decade of acne, this was my actual holy grail of skincare.”

Eczema-sufferers too have jumped on the bandwagon, explaining that after struggling to find a cleanser they have been able to use this one without irritation. “This is my third bottle [and I] will continue to buy it,” another customer commented.

We’ll spare you the rest of the 248 reviews but, suffice to say, this is definitely going on our shopping list.
