Such crap. Read the ingredient list. Way to many chemicals. SLS, masking fragrance and Menthylparaben, some things that are not good for your skin. My dermatologist recommended this for my breakout/oily skin. It clogged my pores oily and would give me red skin. Not to mention that the fragrance is horrible. This is a major no no. Do yourself a favor and not use any petrochemicals on your skin.
I bought this because I have very oily, acne-prone but very sensitive skin and Cetaphil markets its products as being gentle and non-irritating. I had tried their regular liquid cleanser for dry, sensitive skin but it never cleaned well enough and left what felt like a heavy film. I was sorely disappointed w/ this product. The pump pkg is convenient and the smell is subtle but very nice. However, my skin felt really stripped after use, and became more and more irritated, tight, and blotchy after each use. Either my skin was allergic to something in it or it was stripping my skin barrier. Either way, the result was uncomfortable, unatttractive redness, blotchiness and those surface wrinkles you get from having very dry, tight skin, with increased oiliness within a few hours. Being acne and acne-mark prone, blotchiness and irritation is a huge problem for me. It felt like it stripped my skin so much that my skin revved up oil production a few hours after use to try to compensate. I gave up after about 2 weeks and will not re-purchase.
This Product is the worst thing I have put on my face. It actually made my pimples worse after one use. After reading the ingredients I found that it contains mainly all the ingredients a facewash for people with oily skin that are more likely to break out shouldnt. it contains so many different pore clogging, irritating acne aggrivating ingredients I was shocked.
This product is amazing!!! I love it! It makes mt skin feel soft and doesn't give me that tight feeling. It is my everyday facial cleanser and don't think I will switch to anything else anytime soon.
I bought this cleanser a few days ago because I've heard many positive reviews on Cetaphil's cleansers. So the first time I used this my skin felt very fresh and glowy. The second time I used it..My skin was from fresh and glowy- to red, itchy and irritated. I have Oily skin, so this was a shock to me. It was almost like I had a sunburn! My friends thought I did too.
Isn't too expensive.
Come's in a nice pump package.
Doesn't foam up.
Burns/Feels like a sunburn.
Harsh- not gentle at all!
Doesn't clean as well as my other cleansers.
I think I'm going back to my Neutrogena Cleansing Facial Bar. Maybe I'll give this away to my brother or a friend, because I don't want it.
Asian, sensitive, ruddy skin, prone to blackheads and acne when stressed or in new/dry climates. I actually really like this cleanser as a basic cleanser and always revert to it when something new disappoints me. It's cheap, readily available (in the States) and takes my makeup off well. It doesn't irritate my skin, doesn't strip it and seems to make my pores clearer. I try to just massage it in for at least 15 seconds so that dirt and makeup can break up and work its way out of the pores a bit (I have sooo many blackheads!). I still go over any face wash with a gentle toner (currently SKII) but this stuff doesn't make me feel tight or dry and removes my makeup well enough at the same time.
Decent price, easy to use packaging, but really that's were the pros stop. It didn't get my makeup off well, and yet somehow managed to make my oily/combination skin feel sahara desert esque. It didn't foam well, and the consistency seemed to slip out of my hands, making me feel like I was wasting product. Basically, it made my skin feel dry, dirty, and dull. Will not buy again.
Meh. I didn't find it did much for me. My skin is acne prone and tends to get a bit oily throughout the day, so this was okay but it didn't do anything special. Wouldn't bother buying it again.
The only cleanser that doesn't make my skin flaky!! So thrilled about that! It does an OK job at removing my makeup (bare minerals) as my toner cotton ball still tends to pick up some residue. I have extremely oily acne prone skin and this wash has become my HG; doesn't over-dry, gentle, just nothing harsh to irritate my skin.
I am on a mission to get rid of all supposed gentle, natural cleansers and lotions that seriously just clog my pores and ruin the state of my skin. Yes, this is a gentlish (if that is a word) cleanser. It does what it is supposed to do in that it does in fact clean your face. BUT, there is so much junk in it that i find it hard to believe that it can truly be gentle to your skin. There is sls and a number of other preservatives. I just dont feel like it does anything for the health of my skin and i am always trying to clean up the mess on my face that this cleanser causes. It does clog my pores and dries out my skin - I guess I am just sensitive to the sulfates in the product. I wouldnt have as much of a problem with it if it did not try to appear to be such a gentle, natural product. I just feel like it is false advertising. Gosh..I have turned into such a tree hugger!!
