I had been using the Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser and while that one was ok it was kind of drying to my sensitive skin and the smell got annoying after awhile so I decided to try this one. Well I have very sensitive skin so I am always looking out for a good gentle cleanser. This one was definitely gentle, in fact it was a little too gentle, it didn't feel like it got my skin clean and it definitely didn't remove all my makeup, in fact it left most of it on my skin. For awhile I tried using this in the morning and the oily skin cleanser at night but that go annoying after awhile, I recently discovered Paula's Choice Skin Balancing cleanser and it did everything I hoped this would do, removed my makeup, was fragrance free, didn't dry or irritate my skin, and left my face feeling very soft. This cleanser was just ok and I won't repurchase.
Not that this cleanser needs another fabulous review, but I thought I'd give my two cents. This has been the only cleanser that does not break out my sensitive, dry skin. It's amazing ! So cheap, too. I'll buy it again and again. Plus, it doesn't have that soap-like smell. Try it.
I have been using cetaphil for about 7 years now and I still love it. It has never caused me to break out, is not oily, and does not dry my skin. I think this product is great for sensitive skin. Costco sells two 20oz bottles for $15.99.
I used this as a makeup remover to remove my whole makeup as i seldom wear mascara so this is alright for the face makeup....i got a seperate one for the mascara remover anyway, this, i find it gd for removing my makeup as i had a sensitive acne-prone skin, i find this doesn't sting my face like Johnson Baby Lotion (I had tried cleansing oil and cleansing milk, both sting my face badly even when they state it is mild or sensitive skin but never fail to sting like a bee) It hurt so much until when i applied Johnson Baby Lotion, it seem to work for me but too bad after gone through a few dozen of bottles, the good effect never last long and it start to sting my face, maybe my skin use to it so i hope it won't happen for this. It cleanses well but of course it had to be followed by cleansing foam/gel to wash off. The only problem with this is that it is too watery. When i use to remove makeup, no matter how careful i am, it always drip off on my cotton wool to my shirt and that is what i hate but since im going to change my cloth after shower, i don't see it been a harmful affecting me:P
Nevertheless, it's still expensive for me and i got it during a promotion, got 2 for the price of 1 so it's still manageable but i wonder how i manage in the long run as i applied everyday....I will definitely repurchase until i find something cheaper and better. For now, this cleanser score for me. Note that i do not use this to wash face, i find it doesn't clean my face well when washing face and im afraid it might broke me out as it does have some moisturizing factor in it....
After all the reviews felt this had to be the one for me..so NOT the case. Made my sensitive skin break out, though I persevered for 10 days, no improvement. Probably the worse cleanser I have ever tried, and thats saying something!
Great for any sensitive skin. I use it in the shower first thing in the morning. It's a great way to prime your face before puting on make-up
This is a gentle cleanser that will not irritate my sensitive skin when I'm on Retin A. I used it in the morning and just take a soft cloth and swipe it off without the use of water. A little expensive though.
I have a very sensitive acne prone skin. I really wanted to make this product work for me because its so cheap and you can find it everywhere. Unfortunately, it made my face break-out and i feel that it doesn't remove dirt so my pores clogs up. In fairness, i have used this on my son's face and it work wonders!!! the redness disappeared and his skin return to its original softness. Hope this helps!
i think my skin is too thick and strong for this....it's just like rubbing liquid air on my face. rinsing my face with water does more for my face than this.
This stuff saved my skin! After years of trying all sorts of harsh cleansers and treatments for my "break-out prone oily skin", one of my mom's friends suggested that I try Cetaphil as the other stuff was leaving my skin red, swollen and more broken out that before. What a difference! With in a few days of using it, my skin was less red, the puffyness had gone away and my breakouts were clearing up! As it turned out, I wasn't oily and breakout prone at all! My skin was just seriously sensitive, and I was allergic to most of the stuff.
I religiously use this and the Cetaphil moisterizer and, while I still do have a bit of redness and the occasional zit, I get lots of compliments about how good my skin looks! I highly reccommend this!
