This face wash was a huge disappointment. Slightly expensive for a drugstore face wash too. I've used much better for half the price. The first week or so of using this I had no acne but wanted to find a face wash that could control my oily skin. Now after two weeks, my face has horribly broken out all over the place. My jawline, cheeks, forehead, areas that haven't broken out like this since I was in middle school. I can feel that it doesn't remove all of the dirt and oil in my pores like my previous acne wash had. Will definitely not be using this again since I am having to do serious repair on my skin now.
I was originally using cetaphil oily skin cleanser for like 2 months, which is recommended by my derm. and it works soo well on my face. and then suddenly on the 3rd month my derm said they no longer having cetaphil oily cleanser, he will gv me a new one but still cetaphil. turned out its cetaphil dermacontrol foam wash.
i was excited to use it but after few days, i can see that my face started to hv some pimples back but i still try to keep calm and blame on my menses. but my face become worseeee and a big pimple also coming out then i cant stand it anymore!
i went to see my derm again but he dont think its because of this cleanser. and gv me more antibiotics instead. but after that i went straight to watsons to buy the old cetaphil oily cleanser. and i can see slowly my face recovering again. i regret using this cleanser honestly. huhu. and i dont know why my face looks dull and darker when using this cleanser.
When I started using it and it didn't control my oil for long. After a couple minutes my nose would be all oily. Another problem I have with it is that when you start massaging it into your face, it drys up pretty quick. It also made me break out with big stubborn pimples that lasted forever.
Got this per my dermatologist suggestion. I like to use it in the morning as it refreshes my skin and doesn't make it feel tight after washing. Not too great at removing make up so I only use it in the morning time. It's very gentle and leaves my skin supple and prepped for cosmetics. Definitely will keep repurchasing.
in response to auntiec30, your asking if what product is good for very oily skin? I think it is the Histomer Oily Skin Formula. My dermatologist recommend that to me. Before I have very greasy skin but since I started using that histomer, my skin start to look good, but I just noticed that it makes my skin look darker.
my dermatologist recomended this to me when she was prescribing me products to help my acne. i cant tell how it helps my acne because i am using other medicated topical creams and gels. but if i do use any other face wash i do breakout more. i like this product, it foams very well onto your hand but disapears mostly when applied to my face. but i am ony using one and a half pumps for my face, while others are using up to 4 pumps.i use this twice everyday on my face, back, and chest so this lasts me about 3 months. im on my second bottle. i give the packaging quality only a 2 because 1. this prodect is hard to travel with because it is a foaming cap so it does spill a little if put into a suitcase( i put this product in a baggy when traveling) and 2. because when iv used up about half of the bottle the pump seems to lock a little when pushed down all the way. this has happend with both bottles iv botten. overall i will continue to buy this face wash unless my derm recoments me something other than this. it clears away my oil without stripping my totally and there is never any residue left on my skin. plus it works great for back and chest acne which iv had problems with.
Keeps my skin clean and foams up nicely. This product is becoming a staple of mine, I'm already on my fifth bottle. It smells fresh and makes my skin feel smooth . I use it morning and night, and in conjunction with the matching moisturizer for day-time. It's helped fade my stubborn acne-scars and prevents any new breakouts from erupting. About three pumps are enough for me to get a thorough clean. I honestly can't say that this helps me control my oily skin. But, I'd much rather deal with the oils than have a product that strips them. Ladies, oily skin is a good thing! Embrace the shine = less wrinkles in the future. I'm on a few prescriptions for my acne (light t-zone breakouts) and they've helped me the most. This product is good for keeping my skin clean, but it's not a miracle worker. I wouldn't recommend it to someone that has moderate-severe acne. The perfume in this might be too much for sensitive skin.
made my skin look dull and did nothing for my oil prone skin.... used it in conjunction with the moisturizer.
went back to using cetaphil's oily facial cleanser before the bottle even finished.
Used this product for 1 month.
I LOVE this product. I love anything that is Cetaphil. The brand has no bad products for my skin. I used their gel facewash for oily skin and used up the entire huge bottle, so I wanted to try this one. I love the foam. That's the best part about this. It works great with my Clarisonic.
My face really hasn't been as oily lately. This strips the skin of the bad oils, but leaves the good.
If you love Cetaphil and have oily or acne prone skin, try this out. It is very gentle and won't upset the acne on the face. It really works wonders.
I've only used this a few times. I am using this in the am to wash off retin a and moisturizer. I dont think I would try and remove make up at night with this.I use neutrogena grapefruit scrub at night and have always felt it was too harsh for a light morning wash.
EDIT...I do not think this cleaned my face good at all. And I think it had too much glycerin which if I use too much will clog my pores and I think it started to, it felt like it left a film on my face.
