Its Awesome I Love It And It Does What It Says For Cheap !.
Been using Cetaphil for all my 18 yrs as a professional makeup artist. Never even considered a replacement because it does everything I need it to. Sometimes I use the Clarins cleansing water which is nice too, but i go back to my Cetaphil roots because it works so well and is thicker than the Clarins which is nice sometimes when you need that.
It cleans with out water (just wipe clean with a cotton pad or facial tissue)
wipes off without oily residue
removes even waterproof mascara
is great for all eye makeup removal, doesn't bother even sensitive eyes like mine
leaves skin soft and fresh
not a replacement for daily skin cleanser that requires water. skin needs water people! (but its still great because we don't always have water around do we?)
I recently accidentally purchased the kind of Cetaphil that requires rinsing so don't make that mistake. Its not the same! I read some of the reviews and wonder if that mistake may have been made by other reviewers.
It was gentle, sure... But it left a film on my skin, and made me break out in acne.
My mom had always used this cleanser so I grew up using it as well. In middle school I had skin that would break out alot and this cleanser is extremely gentle and effective. Now as a college student, it is wonderdul as i dont have breakouts ever, but it is still an amazing cleanser to get rid of dirt and makeup. The price is also great for someone who is on a tight budget. Definitely worth it.
Cetaphil and Cerevea are almost the same product to me. I use both interchangably while I am supplementing on the side with a medicated topical treatment either from the derm or over the counter.
I love Cetaphil because it cleans your face without leaving it irritated. Sometimes while I am removing my makeup, I don't want the salcylic acid or benzoyl peroxide, as too much drys out my face.
I believe in cycling off of medicated treatment ever month or so for a few days so it is very nice just using cetaphil with a nice moisterizer :)
I started getting terrible hives on my forehead when I was 14 years old and this was what my dermatologist suggested for me to use. 14 years later, it is still my favorite cleanser. No, it's not fancy. And no, it's not luxurious but it keeps my skin healthy and clear. I do get seduced by more expensive cleansers and creams from time to time but inevitably, my skin will react and I always go back to Cetaphil. At around $10-$12 for 16 ounces, it's a great investment and lasts a long time. The best deal is to purchase this at Costco or Sam's Club, usually I get two 20 oz bottles for around $15.
I like to use this as a body wash in the winter when my very dry skin needs a soap-free cleanser. My favorite way to use this is almost like a mask in the shower, I'll pack on tons of product and gently massage in and after about 5-7 minutes (usually let it sit while I'm shampooing and conditioning my hair), I'll wash it off and my skin is so much softer. The dry flakes will be gone and any acne will have reduced in size and redness! Love this product so much, it will always be in my skincare routine!
I am really not a fan of cetaphil facewash. I used it because it is non medicated and I didn't want to further irritate my face while on some spot treatment products.
I didn't like the way cetaphil made my face feel. It seemed to feel dryer than it should while using a non medicated facewash and it irritated it a bit. I would literally rather use my dove soap then cetaphil. Cereve has worked a lot beter IMO
I cannot use any other cleanser for night time. I rub a quarter sized amount on DRY skin and either take a tissue to the eye area first to get the excess eye makeup off, or just go straight to rinsing with warm water. My skin feels clean and soft. Some people like cleansers that lather and Cetaphil makes a cleanser that does that looks just like this, but is labeled "for oily skin". I don't care for the lather on my face because it strips it too much. In the morning, all I need is warm water splashed on it and then I can start my day.
I first started using this when eczema started flaring up on my face around 10 years old. Using this helped soften and heal a lot of the inflammation. I decided to go back to it again sometime last year and for some reason, I started breaking out. I stopped using it till last month when I experienced a really bad sunburn. I did not want to use any of my other cleansers because I was afraid they may be too harsh on my sun damaged skin, so I went to this. I cleansed my face 2-3x with this. The first application smoothing it allover my face then wiping off. The second application was washed off. I repeated the process when necessary. No breakouts this time and my skin was left feeling comfortable! I just wish this could remove makeup. (One lippie off for that).
Highly recommended by some dermatologists. Many awards. I am puzzled somewhat because it does not remove make up well enough.
