This is an excellent, classic, beauty staple. I've strayed from this cleanser only to always return. Highly recommended, and also works well as a gentle make-up remover.
ah yes. cetaphil. the brand we all know. =-)
i love this cleanser. i have sensitive combo skin and this doesnt dry my skin!!! it rinses off really well which is a bonus. my only prob is pimples. it doesnt make them worse, but it doesnt make them go away. but its an excellent product.
It's gentle, didn't bother my skin when I had a very bad eczema flare, but it doesn't clean all that well (and doesn't lather). I broke out and found out from a friend that she did too when she used this. It doesn't seem to strip my skin of moisture though but I prefer Dove sensitive bar soap.
This felt gooey and gross when I tried it [as recommended by my doctor]. It didn't even feel like my skin was clean after I washed it off. Felt somewhat greasy too? Anywho, didn't make a whole lot of difference on my skin, other than I felt like washing it with something else after using it!! Not worth your money, trust me. Other than its pump, this cleaner is a joke!
I think a lot of people buy this product, expecting miracles. But this is a GENTLE cleanser. It's not supposed to work miracles, it's a non-irritating cleanser that is mainly used for sensitive skin. It's a great cleanser for someone with sensitive skin. I don't use this as my main cleanser. I use a "harsher" cleanser in the morning and at night. My main cleanser is $30 for 3.3 fl oz. So, I don't use that all the time because of the price, and I don't want to totally strip my skin. So, during the day, after I eat or whenever my face feels like it needs a wash, I'll use cetaphil.
My dad got this for me, so i decided to give it a shot.I don't LOVE it or like it but i don't hate it either. It's ok. The only reason I would use it is because it doesn't clog pores, but other than that it feels wierd, and its pretty much a middle of the road cleanser.
*** Love this product!!! I have sensitive- combo- acne prone skin, but my skin looks beautiful since I have been using this. Maybe I was over cleaning my skin and making it more oily, and causing it to break-out!!! For the first time in years I can go outside with-out make-up on, and not frighten any-one. I wear mineral powder make-up, so this product works well in removing it. I use a make-up remover for eye make-up, and then massage the cleanser over my entire face, and wipe of with a warm cloth. I tried this product as a last ditch effort because other cleansers were making my face feel burnt. I expected to hate this product, so I am really surprised that its working!!!! UpDate-- I have to find a cleanser for my face- My skin hasn't broken out, but I'm starting to look shiny- too gentle for the oil on my face--
Tried the sensitive one a while ago as a recommendation from my dermotologist, who assumed that because she put me on acne meds my face would dry out (Wrong-it got more oily). I didn't like it, I have oily/acne prone skin and this seemed to burn when I put it on, too much so that I went back to using bar soap. But that was a long time ago, when I was first put on acne meds. Now I use Olay Daily facials for combo/oily skin. Much better at removing makeup/cleaning.
The worst cleanser ever! Does absolutely nothing for your skin. It doesnt even feel like it is cleansing your skin which is probably why it costs around the $8 mark.
Never in a million years, would I have thought I would be purchasing Cetaphil Gentle Skin Care Cleanser. That is until yesterday, when my face felt like it was absolutely on fire, due to Rosacea. The heat and humidity were terrible and I am beginning to think that's a trigger for me. It was worse than it's ever been. I've been using several different cleansers but recently almost everything dries my face and makes it burn alittle. I was somewhat oily, but not now. Out of desperation I bought some Cetaphil. It actually calmed my face down. I can't get over it. This morning it isn't burning. My skin does feel alittle tight though. This cleanser reminds me of a bland diet. It's so bare bones. There is nothing interesting, sensual or luxurious about it. I would not enjoy using this everyday, but if it stops the burning I just might have to. Maybe all of the antiaging products I have been using for the past six months will have to take a backseat for awhile. EDIT: I changed my review from a 4 to a 5. This gentle cleanser has helped me so much. My skin lately has felt extremely hot and irritated. Cetaphil is the most soothing product I put on my face right now. It never burns and it is one of the only things that calms my skin down immediately. I no longer care that Cetaphil is not fancy and cosmetically elegant. It's a lifesaver for me. It's a keeper!!
