Let me tell you all the truth about Cetaphil and Galderma products......the main ingredient is Petroleum aka Petrolatum aka Parrifium Liquidum. Its literally vaseline plastered on your face. I too was prescribed this product as well as the Galderma moisturizer, Nutraderm, by my Dermatologist! I just have to add, Cetaphil is crap for removing make up even after oil cleansing. I used it for many years and my skin was fine,until, I started getting really bad acne that just wouldn’t go away. I started researching the ingredients and found that Petrolatum is just a pharmaceutical grade plastic layer that is placed over the skin and basically stops your natural oils from evaporating ie. Suffocating your pores. I stopped all my Galderma products and opted for organic, natural skincare products. Then the crap hit the fan. My skins barrier practically stopped functioning because for so many years, my skin thought it was producing enough sebum because it did not evaporate so it basically underproduced sebum. So my skin became extremely sensitive and dehydrated. I started using the Dermalogica Ultra Calming range which focusses on repairing the skins own Barrier and not making it lazy. And I gotta say, my skin has never looked better. My acne cleared 3months after I stopped all Petroleum products on my face. My acne was caused by layers upon layers of suffocating plastic and my pores just needed to breathe! I have been using petroleum free products for 4years now and what used to be severely dry skin is now skin that only needs body lotion every other day. I still use Dermalogica on my face (because Natural face washes just don’t remove make up properly) and Organic natural body washes in the shower. They are filled with anti oxidants that rid your skin of free radicals which is a must.

i love the texture of this cleanser, it is almost a creamy sort of liquid consistency. the smell is nice and it feels good on the skin. for me personally, it didn't leave my skin feeling tight or dry after cleansing. however, this cleanser is not ph-balanced so i could not risk using it long-term. using too high of a ph soap on your face can damage your skin's natural moisture barrier and cause dryness, irritation, and acne. that is one reason that a lot of people have that type of experience with this cleanser.

Tried this few years ago when my friend suggested it. At that time i had quite a lot of acnes. from my experience it is not cleansing enough, my face was left feeling oily afterwards. For people who have normal-dry face it would it good but for people like me who has oily-combination skin better find something else.

This is the only body wash which calms the mild KP on my forearms. It's so gentle and hydrating - I even use it for shaving (underarms and legs) and always zero irritation. I've tried various body washes, soaps, oils from organic and conventional brands -
the PH level always felt off and left me with tight stripped skin. So glad I found this product. The matching lotion is also fantastic.

I use this as my second step cleanser. It’s so gentle just like the name says. My skin feels so good and not dry at all after I use it. I also use it in the mornings and again, it’s not drying. Idk how it’d feel for dry skin because i have oily skin. I also really like the pump dispenser. I’d definitely buy this again!

Finally a facial wipe I like! This has to be about the 20th wipe I've tried. These are gentle on my sensitive rosacea n/d skin and remove my makeup. I thought these were going to be too gentle like the Simple Micellar wipes but they remove everything on my face easily. I don't use them on my eyes because my lashes tend to fall out when using a wipe and I treasure my lashes after using latisse so I am very gentle with them. The wipes are big enough unlike the Olay 4-in-1s, and I enjoy the nubbly side that's not too rough.

I love the packaging. I can get 1 wipe at a time unlike Clinique's packaging where I was always getting multiples and had to stuff them back in the package. And then had to struggle to close the lid. Argh.

I also don't feel like I must rinse after using these like I did after Cerave's wipes which stung my face, so great one step for quick morning cleaning or great for makeup changes. Oh and these are totally scent-free unlike several brands I've tried that sneak fragrance in, like L'Oreal and Neutrogena.

I have already repurchased.

Dried my skin out, and exacerbated my acne.

I normally would not use a bar soap on my face, but this soap was reviewed so highly on MUA that I was hopeful it would work for me. After the first day using it, the cystic acne around my jawline was noticeably more inflamed. After the second day, I noticed my skin became more oily throughout the day and I had to blot my T-Zone a lot. The third day, while applying my makeup, I noticed how patchy and flaky my skin was in areas; by the end of the day, my face was slick with oil. A lot of my cystic acne has now surfaced into horrible, inflamed white heads, and I have other small zits popping up on my face where they normally would not surface. Other acne that was receding and healing, has now become worse.

I tried this soap on my body, because I didn't want my purchase to be a complete waste. However, it has also dried out my skin and left dry patches in places. If you have dry skin, DO NOT purchase this product! It may work for some people, but for me it was a complete waste.

Cleansers -Cetaphil -Dermacontrol OIl Control Foam Wash

WAY too perfume-y! I have stopped washing immediately below my nose with this product so as to minimize the fumes. Bit of a fail when it comes to claims that it rinses cleanly and doesn't irritate (even if it's technically not skin irritation). I expect this product would work best for someone who is moderately oily. I am only borderline oily (and more "combination") so I find it rather drying and stripping. I'm currently stuck with it though and have used it about a week so far. (That is at least enough time for me to tell if I'm developing skin irritation or not.)

I give 3 stars because it does remove oil and my sensitive skin has miraculously not shown visible irritation* other than dryness (*for me, irritation usually takes the form of redness and widespread acne breakouts), which I cannot say for the vast majority of products for oily skin, with the typical "scorched earth" policy for skin cleansing. However I am very used to the calming friction reduction of foaming face washes that lather *in your hands*, and I much prefer unscented products whenever possible (like the Dermacontrol skin cream with SPF, which is just fine at what it does, without added odours). This product is dispensed as a foam, and the dispensing leaves something to be desired. I have to turn the bottle on its side if I don't want to make a mess, and it's neither shaped nor weighted to handle well that way. Very easy for it to slip or drop from my hands. :/

So overall 3 stars because it does deliver on what it promises, but I am not at all a fan of the packaging and depending on how long this stuff lasts at 4-5 pumps per use, I'm not crazy about the price either.

*update*
11/16/2017 - I have used this product for a while longer. Eventually I managed to get figure out how to make 3 pumps of foam work, without feeling like I'm rubbing bare hands all over my face (due to its thinness, evaporation, and lack of slip). It didn't help at all, and clogged pores have been on the increase all over my face, as well as a rough/ leathery feeling that only irritating cleansers have tended to leave me with. I have just switched back to my HG face wash that I thankfully found on sale today. Instantly fixed the rough feeling. I have taken an additional lippie off for this product, because it does cause subtle irritation which appeared to be growing over time. (Not surprising with so much intense fragrance, poor cushioning of the face from hands, and no slip as you rub it over your skin.)

Final rating: 2/5 lippies.

I'm acne-prone and VERY oily but I get extremely dry during the winter since it's very cold where I live (Sweden). I've been using this as a nightcream for about three months now and I love it. My dryness is completely gone and it hasn't broken me out AT ALL, which I was worried about since it is a rather thick cream. The fact that it's so thick is also the reason that I only use it during nights, and I think that it would be a bit too greasy for me to use under my makeup (since my skin is so oily). Note that I haven't tried this yet so who knows! So far it seems to hydrate me enough by only being applied night time, maybe I'll use it during the days further into the winter.

This is an amazing product, especially given its price.

I rarely review skin care or cleanser for that matter, but since I really didn't had a good experience with this product I thought I could leave my thoughts here.

I have acne pretty easily sadly, after seeing adds of this product and so many reviews of people enjoying it I choosed to give it a go.
I was extremely disappointed to say the least. I used it for more than 6 months because I really wanted to give it a solid try, but this product only gave me more acne and made my skin even more sensitive. After stopping using it I started to have less acne and my skin came back to normal.

So, maybe it's because I have a combo skin type that it didn't worked for me.
But over all I do not recomend it, and I wil certainly not buy it again!

Excellent product. I have combo dehydrated skin with it being oily in the summer. I’ve always used face wash that was for oily skin and in turn was over drying my skin making it oily but very dehydrated. To remedy that, I have started using Cetaphil and I’ve noticed a huge difference in my skin. It has rebalanced my skin. I use it without water in the morning. I rub all over my face then use a warm wet face towel to remove. At night I remove makeup with a micellar water then go in with this. I will not be without this now.

I LOVE this cleanser! My mom and I have noticed such a difference in our skin after washing our face with this every morning and night. Our skin feels so much softer. I LOVE using this in the morning before I put my makeup on because I don't feel I have to use a primer - this gives me the nice clean face I want!

Plus, it's super gentle, which means no harsh ingredients. I have super sensitive skin and my mom has rosacea and we have had no problems with this!

I buy this in the mini size in the travel toiletries section at Wal-mart. I always keep one on my desk and one in my purse. It's a fantastic simple moisturizer. I tap it under my eye if my concealer starts looking a little dry or even if I just want to brighten a bit. I'll tap my nose if my foundation starts to break down. Works great even with my oil t-zone. Also, good on the lines around my mouth. Great on the lips and hands too! It's a fantastic value.

I had been using this cleanser for a little over a year and I never realized that it was a cause for my acne until I looked at the ingredients. I purchased this item in the beginning because it seemed like a gentle cleanser and it got all round good reviews but when I used it, I would notice it would harshly strip my skin of all its oils and leave me surprisingly dry and the moisturizers I would put on wasn't enough to compensate for the oil that was stripped away. One random day, I found a website called CosDNA (which I really recommend) and checked the ingredients of this product and found that it had parabens, fragrance, and worst of all sulfates. After I saw that, I immediately dumped this cleanser because my acne is linked to oil production and when I used this 'gentle cleanser' my face would be extremely dry and as a result my skin would overproduce oils which caused worse acne. So overall, it was harsh for me despite having oily skin and I would recommend cleansers that don't have sulfates.
