The cult U.S brand launched here in the UK just over a year ago and I have been hooked ever since. For those asking themselves if my Instagram feed is sponsored by CeraVe, with how often I feature their products in my routines – unfortunately not (I wish!), I’m just very loyal to their affordable, effective products. Featuring Ceramides and Hyaluronic Acid as the star ingredients across the range, CeraVe is the go-to brand for even the most sensitive of skins. Every product is fragrance, dye, alcohol, SLS and essential oil-free and I truly believe that there is something for everyone in this mix of products. With how much love I’ve got for this brand, it’s finally time for a brand overview of the entire UK range.
All good skincare routines should start by perfecting the basics – the first step of which is to cleanse the skin of dirt, oil and pollution, using a cleanser that suits your skin type. I am a huge advocate of choosing affordable cleansers, as they are the only element to a routine that is not going to stay on the skin for considerable time to make an impact. The drugstore/pharmacy is the best place to look, especially with brands such as CeraVe, Simple and First Aid Beauty, that offer top-quality cleansers, at budget prices.
If you take one piece of advice from this article, let it be this: save on your cleanser and invest in your treatments.
I had serious FOMO over this much-hyped brand for what felt like the longest time. That was until early 2018, when CeraVe finally launched in the UK (albeit, with a limited product range and with different formulations than the US brand offering). The affordable, dermatologist-loved line has a large cult following of dedicated skincare junkies for good reason – they do the basics.. and do them well.
