I got a sample of this cleanser at my dermatologist's office & I loved it! It takes off most of my make up, but has a hard time taking off my waterproof mascara (so I use Pond's Classic Cold Cream to take that off). Sometimes I feel like it doesn't take off my YSL Teint Resist foundation, but I haven't experienced any breakouts so far.
This cleanser leaves my skin feeling clean and feels like it retains moisture. The bottle is definitely sealed tightly because as I got down to the bottom of the bottle, the bottle started to cave in. I took off a lippie because in the winter, this cleanser might be too drying for my skin. I am combo oily.
Regarding the people commenting on how bad it is at removing makeup it doesnt gurantee it's going to be specifically for makeup removing it's more aimed towards a gentle cleanser for sensitive skin types. Saying this I'm a daily makeup user and even with other cleansers that do remove makeup I still do a 2 step process to make sure all the gunk is off. My skin is combination to dry and very acne prone and unfortunately I have eczema on my body from time to time. I recently had a crazy allergic outburst and my face expoloded in eczema itchy red patches that was also oozing (I know how disgusting!) that I could not get rid of. My life was definitely put on hold until I started using this cleanser with their barrier cream. It's been only 2 nights and my skin is already reducing in redness and the eczema is definitely calming down. It's not meant to be a powerful cleanser, which is great cause my face doesnt get stripped of its natural protective barrier which is especially needed before bed time. I love this product! The fact you can find it almost anymore is great, and really the consistency isn't horrible. People just need to get their minds out of the gutter.
Hi:) I'm pretty much an everyday makeup user and I expect my face washes to clean off the gunk on my face! This cleanser is P-E-R-F-E-C-T after a long day of NOT wearing makeup!It's gentle and it's not over-drying! Buuuuutttt....
since I wear makeup almost everyday,I feel like this doesn't cleanse my skin that well.I don't use a lot of makeup but I feel like Cetaphil removes the makes ON TOP of my skin rather than actually cleaning deeply into my skin!
So Overall,it's an O.K. product...for days when I don't wear makeup!
I used this product for a while, but it would leave alot of makeup residue so I stopped using it. I am on the hunt for a new cleanser. This one is just not the one for me.
Very gentle cleanser. I have acne-prone, oily skin, and this is gentle enough to clean without stripping. I have to wash twice to get makeup off, but I don't wear makeup daily, so it's not too big of a deal... though there is probably some still left behind in the pores, and I should be using another product to fully take everything off. At any rate, I've repurchased this a few times. It does the job and doesn't make me break out.
Glad I'm not the only one that thinks this stuff has the consistency of jizz! It's runny and comes shooting straight out of the pump.
This has the consistency of jizz as mentioned before, I use the daily cleanser and picked this up on accident. I washed my face with this twice and woke up with a face full of zits. Never again, promptly returned it.
Consistency is kind of weird and i have to pump a lot into my hands to lather my whole face. I find that i go through bottles and bottles off this stuff because it doesn't remove all my makeup completely. I like it because it's gentle and does not break me out. I get a lot blackheads on my nose and this has helped to release and de-congest them with the use of benzoyl peroxide 5%
Kind of like washing your face with jizz but what can I say this is great stuff
I have acne prone skin and was recommended to use this cleanser by my dermatologist. It is a great cleanser really feels like it is removing the impurities on my skin. I have to say though, it definitely does not remove all of my makeup of my face, hence I tend to use makeup wipes then use another face wash and then use cetaphil to really clean my skin once everything as been removed.
This product is dermatologically recommended for a reason, probably one of the only products on the market we should actually be using on our faces!
I got this item from the derm. I have ultra oily skin, acne prone, sensitive, you name it. This item did not help me at all. It seem pretty diluted :/ After washing my face with this, few hours later, there's will be a thin layer of what seem like sticky substance on the surface of the face.
I went back to the derm, and she give me no explanation about this sticky thing. Using antibiotic, cream and washing the face with this for 6 months. No improvement at all, i gave up on this looking at hefty sum i spend on derm. Felt cheated. Really.
