Great drugstore skin care finds: CeraVe Healing Ointment and Foaming Facial Cleanser

CeravePart of the reason I think I love beauty products so much is I am a bit of an adrenaline junkie. There is a huge rush that comes from combing the drugstore aisles and finding extremely inexpensive products that end up being worth their weight in gold. One line that is indeed a goldmine is CeraVe. Two of my favorite products that I highly recommend are the Healing Ointment ($22) and the Foaming Facial Cleanser ($13). PR samples

Cerave Foaming Facial Cleanser and Healing Ointment
The Healing Ointment is going to completely replace Vaseline in your home. It’s similar in texture to Vaseline, and is very gentle on skin. It is the bomb for super dry, chafed, or cracking skin. You know how dry heels and the bottom of toes get in the winter? Slather this on at night, put some socks on, and in the morning you won’t believe how much that cracking has healed.

The ingredients are about 50% petrolatum, or what you find in Vaseline. Also included are hydrating mineral oil, silicone, and waxes that give dry, cracked skin the major hit of moisture that it needs. And there is more! It also has hyaluronic acid and ceramides, which repair skin. All of these ingredients make for soft, healed skin. This healing ointment is fragrance-free, which is awesome. It does leave skin kind of tacky, although I would say less so than Vaseline does, but it really is a wonder for cracked, dry skin.

My second CeraVe recommendation is for the Foaming Facial Cleanser. What a great buy! If you have normal to oily skin, this is the stuff for you. It’s very gentle and is fragrance-free. It has a nice, light foam and is a water-soluble cleanser that removes dirt and makeup and leaves skin feeling soft. If you have sensitive skin or suffer from eczema or rosacea, this is a perfect drugstore choice. YES!
These two finds from CeraVe are not only great for your skin and wallet, they will also satisfy the shopping/adrenaline junkie in you. Marcia loves this line too and I know she has more recommendations to give you soon. – Lisa
