Cleansers -Cetaphil -Gentle Skin Cleanser

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

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.

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

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.

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.

Bought a small bottle. This doesn't foam... Despite there being SLS present, looks almost identical to snot, and doesn't make my face feel even remotely clean. Just imagine trying to wash your face with a slippery, non-foaming goo. Not nice. Left some kind of film too. Every time I used this, I couldn't resistent washing with something else after

This doesn't work on me despite so many people loving it. Break me out and I didn't feel clean. Might just be me though because so many people swear by it.

Despite the label saying that this product is for dry to very dry skin, it’s really not. The consistency is that of a thick serum, and it definitely didn’t moisturize my skin enough, although it might work for oilier skin types. I also experienced some itching whenever I applied it, and my skin felt a bit hot afterwards.

I love this moisturizer. It has a creamy consistency. It doesn't contain fragrance. It is very hydrating and soothing. My skin feels good after using it. It never breaks me out. I use it on my face and body.
My only complaint is I wish it weren't in a tub. Jars and tubs expose it to air and bacteria from having to dip into it. This can make it expire faster. If this were a small jar that wouldnt be a problem, since I would go through it faster. However, I am glad the large container saves on cost. I have bought this multiple times and will continue to do so.

Pros:
does its job at moisturizing.
Hydrating and soothing.
No irritating ingredients.
Good deal.

Cons:
owned by a company that tests on animals.
Unsanitary packaging when compared to pump packaging.

Cleansers -Cetaphil -Cetaphil Gentle Make up Remover

on 9/10/2018 6:03:00 PM

Excellent value, already on my 2nd bottle. I've tried a few different methods of removing eye makeup. I'm prone to getting styes and have to be very careful. I like using cleansing milk or oil cleansers on my face to remove foundation and SPF, but I wanted something especially for the eye area that would be very gentle. I saw that this was recommend by an ophthalmologist in a magazine (forget which) so I tried it out. The important thing to remember is that this is a biphasic remover, so you *have* to shake it before using! Otherwise, you're only going to get the thick, viscous silicone layer on top, and it'll feel awful. When you shake it, it gets thinner and more pleasant to use.

I use Lisa Eldridge's method of sandwiching my lashes between two cotton pads soaked in cleanser and just tapping along the lashline with my finger to dislodge the pigment. No rubbing whatsoever. It does a pretty good job for eyeshadow and mascara that way. If I've tightlined my lashline with waterproof mascara then I need to go in with a q-tip soaked in this to get that off. I also dab my eyebrows with this.

This definitely needs to be followed up with a gentle cleanser to remove any residue, but that's normal to me. I am using Bioderma's gel face wash for sensitive skin right now, and it does a great job. My eye area is neither dry nor irritated and there aren't raccoon eyes or anything like that, for the first time in my life. Stye-free, too!

For the price, you absolutely can't go wrong. I think Cetaphil knocked it out of the park with this one.

This could easily be advertised as a "dewy finish" sunscreen. It may absorb sebum, but the sunscreen itself is super shiny.

It also burned my eyes so badly I almost had to pull over because I could barely open my eyes while driving. Maybe I'm just allergic to something in it, idk.

I originally picked this up because it has no fragrance, it's dermatologist recommended, and my friend's roommate has used the cleanser for ages. The cleanser seemed to give me whiteheads a few years ago, but my skin has changed to be much drier these days.

I'm really happy with the lotion. It's great for moisturizing legs after shaving or as a hand cream. I meant to use it on my face, but I haven't done so in quite a while.

I really like this product. Initially, I was a bit hesitant getting Cetaphil products because they're always heavy and greasy even though they make claims on some products to be light, in reality, they're not. But they must have read feedbacks from customers and created something that truly is light and well aborbed on the skin.

This product is for people with oily skin. Drier skin types would need something more emollient and this is not that type of product. It applies easily and disappears quickly without leaving a sticky residue.

On my neck, I would mix this with The Ordinary Ethylated Ascorbic Acid to help with the spread of the Vitamin C as it's not very spreadable on its own. So this product is a two-in-one for me. Great on its own and can be combined to spread and absorb other actives.

Overall, for the price, content and quality of the product, I would highly recommend this.

I really like this product, but I use it as a hydrating serum before I put on my other moisturizers. I don’t think it’s overly moisturizing on its own, but I love to put on a thin layer, and then go in with my thicker creams. I feel like it’s a nice extra boost of moisture, and it helps the other creams to spread easier.
