I am unsure what all the hype is about.

I have been using this for nearly 12 years. I was first introduced to it by my Dermatologist for my eczema. Its great for the face when your skin is really dry or sensitive or when you start acne meds. I used then when I started Retin A Micro until my skin got used to the medicine. These days I use it as a hand wash. Its great on my super sensitive, eczema riddled hands. Since the 16 oz doesn't come with a pump (as it should), I take a pump from one of the 16oz Cetaphil lotions and it works perfectly. Highly recommended.

I use this as a base for an aspirin mask and it works awesome. I also use it to cut my pro activ cleanser: I mix the two of them 50/50 in my palm and it makes the pro activ less harsh on my sensitive skin and makes the pro activ last longer. as a cleanser on it's own, it's only so-so.

It is OK for cleansing, but when my 3 year caught LICE Yuk from daycare I was horrified! But, This product works for LICE, what you do is wet hair down, squeeze on product, comb with a lice comb, leave on over night, and comb again in the moring with lice comb and rinse out, I use this regularlly on his hair and he has never cuaght again and it is not toxic and not dangerous. Not: I still washed all the sheets and threw the pillows in dryer, and vaccumed real go, I also sprayed down the mattresses. If you have every had a kid with this I know your pain. Mary

My dermatologist recommended this cleanser for me years ago and I was very unimpressed. First of all it didn't remove my make-up at all, which can lead to clogged pores.

This product smells great, has a nice consistency, and leaves my skin feeling fresh, but it breaks me out everytime I use it, and leaves a nasty film :(

I've started Cetaphil years ago. My dermatologist recommended and I've been using it on and off ever since. I used it the most during the winter months when my skin is dry. I have combo skin during the summer and dry during winter. My skin gets less oily during the cold season so I don't want to dry it out even more with a cleanser that suds up. Cetaphil is perfect for that.

Cetaphil is such a great cleanser...if u want to ruin your face. It made me break out and every pore on my face was a blackhead. How come is a "cleanser" if it doesn't take any makeup off my face ???????

I bought this after my dermatologist recommended it to me for my acne prone skin. My skin was never extremely bad like some acne cases - I usually just got a few pimples on a regular basis. They'd get pretty red and angry looking and often hurt. When I first began using cetaphil, I didn't notice much difference - I was still getting the same amount of pimples and they were still pretty inflamed. I kept using it for a little while and then eventually stopped and switched to Proactiv (which also didn't help much). I eventually switched back to Cetaphil and I saw an improvement, though I was still getting pimples. After doing a bit of research, I decided to try Benzac in conjunction with the Cetaphil and I saw an almost instant improvement. My face felt a lot softer and I was noticing a lot less blemishes. Those that did appear were significantly smaller and less angry than when I was using just Cetaphil. I then started using witch-hazel toner as well. This is my HG combination - Cetaphil, witch-hazel and benzac + moisturiser.

I wouldn't use Cetaphil on its own again, but definitely in conjunction with my other HGs. I also use Cetaphil as an eye makeup remover and occasionally add some bi carb soda to make a face scrub. This is one of the few products I have actually had to repurchase and will be doing so for a long, long time.
