This is truly a do no harm cleanser. I actually tried the Target brand generic of this and there really is a difference. The actual Cetaphil is much creamier and not as watery as the Target brand.
After reading great reviews about it, I bought a set from Costco. I was excited to go home try it out, I tried it and it was just meh.... Just alone, it felt like my face was not really "clean". I had to use a second cleanser to "feel cleaner". I use it in the morning with my Clarisonic and its a bit better. Unlike what some reviews said, it does not remove makeup at all.
This product came down from Heaven!! for years I battled dry peeling skin and puss filled pimples!
After discovering this product after 6 years of using harsh chemical brands, my skin cleared up after 3 weeks and it wasn't irritated!
redness reduced and my skin looked better!
SO much product- 1L bottle lasts 6-7months!
I also use 2.5% benzac Ac!
Cetaphil= makeup free days!!
I was a little late on discovering Cetaphil, although it has been talked and talked about everywhere online and comes hugely recommended, I spent a long time not buying it before I eventually got round to getting it. Having been a sensitive/dry skin sufferer all my life I like my facial products to be caring for the dryness plus not heavily scented because I get terrible irritation to heavily perfumed things on my face. This is a nice product, it lives up to most of its claims, it is not scented, made my skin feel fairly smooth and soft, and definitely does not irritate or dry out my skin. I love the consistency too, it isn't too thick, its almost gel like and feels nice when applied to the skin. I wouldn't recommend this as a make up remover, I tried using it to take off my make up a few times and it didn't work very well at all. However if you are looking for a simple, gentle way to wake up your face every morning this works very well. Especially wonderful for those who suffer with easily irritated skin and I would most definitely recommend and buy again.
I really want to like Cetaphil, heck I really want to love Cetaphil. Everybody recommends this..from dermatologists to celebrities to coworkers. This is why despite unimpressive results I have used 3-4 Cetaphil cleansers over the past dozen years. But no more repurchasing for me, I just have to accept that the chosen one Cetaphil is not my HG. It leaves my skin dry and patchy. My skin doesn't feel clean afterwards it just feels stripped. My acne worsens and my skin just looks more irritated as a result of this product.
This stuff is awesome very gentle and great at removing dirt and oil and excess makeup I need a gentle face wash for my skin im in the process of using Accutane so my skin needs a gentle cleanser and this is perfect I love this stuff
My whole life I've had some pretty serious skin issues... Redness, lots of acne, cystic acne, oily t-zone, dry/flaky spots, the list goes on.. I've tried hundreds of products since I was about 10, I'm now 18 and I can say that this product is the ONLY thing that has improved my skin and kept working even after using it for a long time. Since using this product, I've had less oil, breakouts only when it's my time of the month, no dryness, less redness... it makes my skin look good which is something I've never been able to say. I bought the cheap-o equate version of this and I believe it works just as well. What's even better is you can use it without water and it still works! Ladies, you really need to give this a shot!
This cleanser is great for my skin! I have sensitive/acne prone skin and it doesn't break me out. My skin can get dry from using my prescription gel for my acne, and this doesn't dry my skin out. It leaves it feeling soft and clean. When I use this with my clarisonic, my skin looks and feels amazing.
I don't use this cleanser anymore due to the price that it is at my local stores ($10) and I've found other stuff. But when I was in elementary school (LOL), I did and I really think this helped me not have major breakouts in my teen years (now). It's unscented and super gentle but gets down into the pores! I love and miss this! Brings back good childhood memories! Will have to repurchase! Nice that it comes with a pump too for less messiness!
this product is fantastic, its so good for dry to sensitive skin, i have redness around my nose and has now gone after using cetaphil gentle skin cleanser for a few weeks, i have tried so many products that would get rid of spots and redness and i have finally found the right thing, i would definitely buy this product again.
