If you're looking for a cleanser that's foamy, bubbly, lathers and/or "soapy", this is not for you. It's almost like washing your face with lotion, however!!, it's a great cleanser for sensitive, oily or acne-prone skin, which I have aIl 3 of. It's a very soft and mild cleanser. You could squirt this in your eye and it won't sting, thats how mild this is. When I wear makeup, I find that I do have to wash at least twice, and doing so has never been an issue for me because it won't dry or strip natural oils from your skin. I've been using this for years and have found that, while it doesn't help clear acne, it won't make acne worse or cause irritation. My skin is extremely sensitive, so much so, that I can tell within minutes of using a product on my face whether or not my skin will react badly or behave itself. Overall I have been very satisfied with this product and will continue to repurchase :)
Many people like it but to me it feels like it doesn't really clean that deep. Its so gentle that it feels like my makeup doesnt come off. I like to see bubbles or something when im washing my face but this has no bubbles no nothing. its my sisters but i would not buy it.
Best cleanser ever! And its very inexpensive too! I have been using this for around 2 years and I keep repurchasing after its finished. It's the mildest cleanser I have tried to date. I use it to cleanse my face in the morning and when I do not have make up on. It doesn't work well removing make up so I will have to do the extra step of using my Bobbi Brown cleansing oil to remove the make up first, then follow up with the Cetaphil cleanser. When I first got it I was a bit unsure, it doesn't foam, so it may give you the impression it isn't that clean but it never gave me breakouts, and at the same time didnt dry my skin like some cleansers do. It works well with the Clarisonic Mia2 that I have, and when I use them both together, I love the brightness and look of my skin after.
I started using cetaphil as my first ever cleanser, it really isn't very good at all. I used to have simple foundation on and it could no way make it budge, even makeup wipes can get foundation and blush off. The smell and the packaging are very plain and boring, I have found way better cleanser at lush and definitely at the drug store. Save your money and get a better cleanser, off course I would not repurchase this.
Best face cleanser ever. EVER. Ask Pharrel Williams, he's 40 and looks 20.
Okay the first two days, I didn't really see anything, which is acceptable! But, mmmm guuuuuuuurrrrl, my skin has cleared up SO MUCH in the 2 weeks. It's great. However, I do use this every night along with my Clearasil Serum for zits, and my Neutrogena moisterizer. These three products are really clearing up my face, I think. But, yes, this cleanser made a beautiful differance, and I reccomend it. Sooooo cheap, especially the amount if gives you! (-:
Wonderful and Gentle, what more do you want?
This is a nice basic cleanser, which doesn't irritate or dry out my skin. I feel like my face is really clean after I use it and it does a good job. I do prefer more of a cleansing milk, but this still made my skin feel soft and clean. No complaints!
It's a really soft lotion feel like face cleanser.
I started using this as part of my regiment to get rid of hormonal acne on face, it's the last product I use (last stage in cleansing) and I use this also as a body wash too as its so soft for my face it would be soft for body as well.
One of the most gentle and soft cleanser that doesn't irritate skin.
The gentle cleanser doesn't get foamy much - gentle oily cleanser does have foams and gives more of a cleansing feel to it. I used it both but gentle cleanser is much more gentler... :)
One of the recommendation for ppl with acne is to remove your makeup with oils like jojoba oil, extra virgin olive oil or sweet almond oil firstly and then finish up with this cleanser... :) your skin will feel like a baby's skin!!! Will definitely be my cleanser for a longggg time!
One of the only things I can use to wash my face because my skin is so sensitive. Doesn't break me out or dry my skin out.
It does remove some makeup, but I do have to use a makeup remover before I use it to make sure it all comes off.
I would definitely recommend if you have acne-prone, dry/sensitive skin! Worth trying. My HG cleanser!
