I bought this because the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser was too gentle for me.
This made my face red and dried out. It was irritated basically. Didn't cause any acne, but I don't like leaving my skin thirsty even if I use my moisturizer afterwards. It's just way too harsh. My mom used it as well and she said it left her skin tight.

Update: 12/7/2012

I gave this another chance as I ran out of my expensive cleanser which had to be ordered online. It removes my makeup well and cleanses my face. I've had harsher cleansers before. It doesn't make my face red that much anymore unless I over-cleanse. I would definitely buy this again considering the good price for the amount I get. I won't be buying fancy cleansers anymore.

It does get all the dirt, oil & makeup out. But it left my face very dry & I started to break out a coupla days later. It burns a little but it maybe because i have very drk skin.

LOVE this stuff. Was a devoted "Dermalogica Girl" for years, spending $40 on bottles of their Special Cleansing Gel which is just that....a gel cleanser for normal to oily skin. One day I ran out completely and went to Ulta to replenish only to find they had NONE left! I needed face cleanser but had no idea what else to buy, so I thought "Well, I know they have Cetaphil and that's cheap and sorta similar, so I'll get that and use it til Ulta gets more of my usual stuff in." Well, imagine my surprise when I ended up loving the Cetaphil! Keeps oil at bay yet doesn't strip my skin or make it feel tight. No breakouts. Seems to remove my makeup just fine. Pleasant scent. For 1/8th of the price of what I was paying before! No-brainer, I'm sticking with the Cetaphil from now on!

This gave me the pleasure of having my first cystic cheek acne! I tried this last year and forgot to review it, probably because I want to forget I ever used it. I was just starting to figure out what worked for my skin and I picked this up since everyone I know said how basic and gentle it is. I used it for about a month. At first it seemed to be doing okay; it did leave a film and I think my blackheads actually got worse. Then the cystic acne showed up. It was really bad and it even did the same thing to my husband at exactly the same time! Previously I never had a zit on my cheeks. I am still dealing with the hyperpigmentation marks 9 months later.

This is an excellent cleanser and highly recommended by many prestigious cosmetic surgeons and dermatologists. While I appreciate (and appreciated) all the rave reviews and endorsements of high faluttin' folk like Nip-Tuckees, I still wanted to give it a whirl on my own. As such, I've been a fan of this cleanser on and off for nearly a decade.

It's great for oily and acne prone skin and also a grand overall cleanser. When I'm out of my beloved La Roche Posay Effaclar, I reach for this one. Cetaphil is an affordable, healthful, and effective cleanser. If you're on a budget, but want quality give this a whirl.

Heavily scented and burned my sensitive skin every time I used it. Between the smell and burning I could not use this product. I double checked the package to be sure I was reviewing the proper product due to the glowing reviews here. This stuff is not for someone with sensitive skin or nose.

this product works wonders on my skin! it pretty much clears up my acne (ew). It's so gentle on my skin and I love the fact that it has no scent! It's not sticky and doesn't make my skin oily, which is a definite plus. There is alot of product in one bottle and it's price is soo affordable. Overall, great product. (y)

This product does not get enough credit for being just as good as titled "makeup remover" on removing make up. I use Revlon Colorstay and Superstay both heavy cov. foundations and this takes them both off amazingly well. I have no problems with removing my makeup and cleaning my face with this. Expensive? Yes indeed but well worth it... As I haven't found a face wash this good at taking off my makeup without irritating my acne prone skin. Lasts a good 2 months maybe 3 if you use it very wisely each time lol For me I can be a total slob with it, coming home late from work just want to go to bed but want to wash my face ... I'm standing in my bathroom washing my hands then vigorously pumping this product out slabbing it on my face trying to get the process over with and it still lasts me about a good 2months and half.

EDIT: 11/16/2012
After being diagnosed with "cystic acne" after the bacteria in my body got immuned to Doxycycline, this I was denial of it really irritated my exsisting pimples. This wasn't doing any good for my face and I seriously couldn't be happier switching to Purpose cleanser! If you hated or dislike this Cetaphil Cleanser, or if you have problem skin like me, seriously switch to Purpose cleanser!!! i absolutely love it.

I was looking for a cleanser that I could use day and night. I've tried many cleansers over the past year or so and they've all been either too drying, didn't work on my acne or I just didn't like how they cleansed my skin. I got this on a whim at Walgreen's and I've never been happier with a cleanser! It has a nice, not to powerful smell and I love the fact that it's gentle enough that I can use it three times daily. I workout after school outside and I hate not taking showers afterwards, and this is really great at removing all the grime.
I use this in conjunction with the All Skin Types Moisturizing Lotion and my skin has never looked better. I think the problem with acne is that people use way to much harsh stuff. I found that these work way better and don't aggravate my skin like cleansers formed for acne do.
Give this a try. There is a big version and a small one. The small one is $8 for 8oz. while the big one is only $10 for 16 oz. It's really a great deal that will last you a long time.
