CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser

Best Cheap Face Wash for Men

Why people love it
  • A very gentle face wash that leaves skin feeling clean
  • Dermatologist recommended 
  • Fragrance-free

This is a cream cleanser, therefore it doesn't lather up and some prefer a sudsy experience. 


Who's it for? Any man with dry skin and on a budget. The CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser is recommended for men with normal to dry skin types and who need extra hydration. For those tough winter monthes, this face wash does an excellent job at keeping your face hydrated when other products can't. 

Texture and fragrance: This is a great product not just for moisturizing, but also for cleaning. The consistency of this face wash is somewhat thick and creamy, compared to others, and doesn't lather well. However, the cream goes on smoothly and spreads easily, which some guys really like. If you're a guy with super dry skin, this product feels like you're washing your face with lotion. Which is pretty soothing, actually. There is no added fragrance, so a good option for those who hate overpowering smells. 

Ingredients: To be honest, the ingredients in this moisturizer aren't the best of the best. But, that's typically the case with a less expensive product. Out of the large list of ingredients in the cleanser, only one stuck out as a natural ingredient: water. 

Price: This is where CeraVe outshines all the other products on this list. At $8 for a 12-ounce bottle, you're paying roughly half the price you would pay for most of our other faves. This product is extremely moisturizing, ensuring that your skin wont dry out.
