Cleansers -Cetaphil -Gentle Skin Cleanser

on 10/13/2018 9:20:00 PM


This one's a classic for a reason. Dirt cheap, nice and gentle, and very effective for what it is. It won't remove makeup (because it's a cleanser, not a makeup remover) and it's sitting at a pH of 6.8 or so which isn't exactly optimal for the face, but even so this was my favorite cleanser for years back in the dark ages when sensitive-skin-friendly options were thin on the ground. Nowadays we have so many more choices, but while I have found a handful of cleansers I like more (Aquanil, the Vanicream bar, Hada Labo's gentle cleanser), you could still do a helluva lot worse than good old Cetaphil. If your skin is going nuts, take a step back from the fancy additives and active ingredients and give a basic product like this one a try. You might be surprised by how much your skin calms down.

Scrubs -Cetaphil -Extra Gentle Daily Scrub

on 10/12/2018 11:21:00 AM


Wow, this has such an overpowering baby powder & plastic diaper smell that makes me never want to purchase this again. As a scrub, it is very gentle and great for those with sensitive skin or using retinol. I use daily glycolic acid peel pads and OTC retinol at night so was looking for a daily microscrub to gently remove dry skin patches. This product works perfectly for my issues. But if you are looking for a coarse, deep scrub experience this prodcuct will not deliver. I would strongly recommend that you take a whiff of this product to see if you can deal with the horrid scent before purchasing.

Moisturizers -Cetaphil -Moisturizing Cream

I've been on the lookout for no-frills creams in recent years.

I like it that Cetaphil moisturizing cream has no scent. It is a thick cream but which absorbs well.

The following compares Cetaphil moisturising cream to some similar ones I've tried.

* Cetaphil moistursing cream has a thicker consistency compared to Cetaphil lotion.
Both do not have a scent. However, the cream somehow absorbs better for me.

* Cetaphil moistursing cream has a thicker consistency compared to Physiogel cream.
Both do not have a scent. Physiogel works better on dry patches on the body (for my dog) and keeps them away. I don't have dry patches, so both work just as well for me.

* Cetaphil moistursing cream has a thicker consistency compared to Physiogel AL cream.
Both do not have a scent. Physiogel AL cream was my lifesaver when I developed a nasty red, swollen painful rash from the use of a pimple cream some years ago. Nothing else was able to soothe the nasty red, swollen, painful rash then. I think there is something in Physiogel AL that helped to soothe my rash. My only quip with Physiogel AL is that it leaves a slight waxy film on the skin. In contrast, Cetaphil moistursing cream is not waxy.

* Cetaphil moisturising cream is not waxy than Nivea creme (Germany version) and absorbs better.
Nivea has a floral scent compared to the scentless Cetaphil. For the level of moisture, Nivea creme provides a tad more.

* Cetaphil moisturising cream has the same consistency as The Ordinary Natural moisturising factors.
Both do not have a scent, and absorbs equally well. I like The Ordinary better as it is paraben free.

In summary, I like Cetaphil moisturising cream as it is packaged for use on both face and body.
It does not have a scent and works well as a basic moisturiser. I've had no adverse reactions from using it on both face and body.
The main drawback for me is the presence of parabens in it.
Lovely if it could be reformulated without parabens.

Skincare -Cetaphil -Daily Hydrating Lotion with Hyaluronic Acid

on 10/6/2018 11:26:00 AM


I purchased this lotion a week ago to add some extra hydration to my routine. I started using Retin A a month ago and my skin has been very, very dry. This lotion is very lightweight and has a runny consistency. It definitely adds moisture to your skin, however for those with dry skin this might not be enough on its own. It is also very basic and doesn't contain enough good ingredients your skin needs. It is more like a serum, which is how I am using it. This acts as a good, inexpensive hyaluronic acid serum that goes under my other products. I love that it is super gentle on my sensitive, irritated, dry skin and has no fragrance. It has not caused any breakouts so far and is labelled as non-comedogenic. It has upped my hydration game for sure and the dryness I have been experiencing from the Retin A has been improving since I started incorporating this into my routine. I will continue to use this and will likely repurchase since it's a much better deal to use as an HA serum as opposed to pricier ones on the market.

Moisturizers -Cetaphil -Moisturizing Lotion

on 9/28/2018 9:58:00 PM


Despite the light lotion texture, this product packs a wallop when it comes to moisture, which is why I rated it as high as I did. My dry skin was definitely happy, but my acne was not as pleased. I noticed after a month of using it that my breakouts were increasing, and that I was developing closed comedones on my cheeks. Also, I found the finish to be a bit too tacky/shiny for my liking.
