i actually bought the equaline generic version of this, but it's pretty much the same-- the trick to using this product is to tissue it off-- like people did back in the day with pond's cream. it doesn't work so well when rinsed off with water. i just take a dime-sized amt. of cleanser & rub it all over my face to loosen the debris and makeup- then i take a piece of toilet paper (unused of course!) and wipe everything off. if there's a lot of gunk on the tissue i repeat the process until no gunk shows up on teh tissue. my skin looks refreshed and feels baby soft. also, i had a acne-prone t-zone before i started using this product. now my skin has become more calm- perhaps because the formulation of this product is so mild- it doesn't foam-- and that's a GOOD thing for those who complained below that it doesn't foam. so try this product or its generic varieties using the method described above.
I can't see that this stuff really does much. I feel like I'd do just as well rinsing my face with water instead of using Cetaphil.
I can't believe I used this cleanser for as long as I did. I'm all for gentle cleansing, but I felt this didn't do a good job. Definitely not a good choice if you wear makeup. It might be okay as a morning cleanser. What I really disliked about Cetaphil is that it seemed to be drying, and I have oily skin. On the plus side it never irritated my skin. I have now switched to Nivea Visage Refreshing Cleansing Gel which I feel does a better job and is not drying.
It doesn't seems to help my acne-proned skin.
When I used this product it felt VERY oily. It doesn't foam at all. I don't like this product and won't repurchase.
This did nothing for me and didn't remove makeup. I much prefer GlyDerm Gentle Cleanser.
GREAT for those with DRY DRY tight sensitive skin! like me!
When I hardly broke out, Cetaphil was FABULOUS with keeping them from coming. Now I break out every so often. I think this is a wonderful product to prevent breakouts, but not so much on getting rid of them - which really it isn't meant to do. So, once my skin calms down a little bit I would definitly buy again!
Water works just as well, and it is cheaper!
overpriced for what it is.. You might as well rub an old bottle of body lotion on your face
