This was okay. I bought it because I was worried that my acne-fighting face washes were too harsh, and I was doing more harm than good. So many people recommended this. I used up the bottle that I bought, but I don't think I'd repurchase. It didn't break me out any more than i already was, or irritate my skin, so for that I applaud it. But I also felt like it never really *cleaned* my skin. Since it did pretty much nothing for makeup removal, I was using a separate face wash for that, and felt like I was kind of defeating the purpose of this super-gentle cleanser. I have since switched to using an oil cleanser, which I have had a lot of success with. To each their own, but for me, this wasn't my favorite.
I've used Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash for years but I finally reached the point where I could use a cleanser without salicylic acid...it was really over drying my skin. I bought this per my dermatologist's suggestion, thinking it would be gentle. The bottle even says, "removes excess oil without drying". That claim definitely isn't true though. It's so rough that immediately after I wash my face, I have dry patches on my cheeks and my face feels tight. I'm going back to Neutrogena.
This was really good for me when I had oily skin. Really liked it. NOT FOR PEOPLE WITH DRY SKIN.
I have acne prone, eczema and rosacea skin.
I use this cleanser at night as it's better in removing makeup compared with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. In the morning, I use Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser.I have been using this cleanser for 1 year. It doesn't clog my pores or dry my skin.
i rarely write reviews but i had to write a review for this product.
i have acne-prone and sensitive skin. i used this product 4 days ago and had to stop using it immediately because it broke me out so much. my face didnt feel clean after using this product, didnt even remove my make-up, worst part is it made my pores large and acne scars more prominent.
My HG cleanser. I used to use a bunch of prescription and drugstore acne cleanser, but they really dried and aggravated my skin. Enter Cetaphil. It cleared up my skin and is super cheap. LOVE!!!!!!!
Before I found the cleanser that I currently love, I used Cetaphil. My skin is very sensitive, oily, and acne-prone. What I liked about the cleanser is the fact that it didn't give me a rash, which was great because my skin gets very easily irritated. It does a great job of cleaning, but I started experimenting with other face washes because I feel like it didn't do anything to control oil or help prevent blemishes. I currently use it to wash my makeup brushes.
My staple facial cleanser. You don't even need water, according to the instructions, but I rinse with water anyway. Super gentle, and still gets most of the gunk off (except for waterproof makeup). Doesn't cause breakouts or aggravate my eczema.
This is my HG cleanser . I use to use the gentle cleanser then my cousin told me to switch to this cause i have oily skin .. within a week i started to notice my skin looking GREAT .. less oiler and less bumps. it is alittle bit more drying but nothing too bad .. i would recommend this product to every one with acne prone skin and oily skin
So i need something gentle to use but I also want something that would tackle my acne and possibly prevent extra oiliness on my face. This cleanser claimed that its extremely gentle and I trusted it because I used the other Cetaphil cleanser that's marked as sensitive/gentle/all skin types. I was dead wrong about this product, if you check the ingredients it has many that can strip your face and make it dry. I used this for about a week and my nose and forhead were peeling. This had a weird alcohol scent which I really did not expect. It was just flat out harsh for me but I heard some people have had luck with this. It has fragrances and harsh stuff in it so SENSITIVE SKIN BEWARE.
