I love this cleanser. I usually use it in the morning and not at night but it is very effective at removing all traces of foundation, etc and I wear a LOT of stuff on my face... Anyway, I wish it was more creamier, more heavy, sort of like Bliss Sleeping Peel Cleansing Cream which I LOVE, but is also like 3 times the price of cetaphil. I have oily skin, but even though I bought Cetaphil for normal skin, it doesn't overly moisturize or anything. In fact, it actually seems to "strip" the skin of oil, but not so much that it dries my skin out, just enough so my skin seems normal
This is the best for dry or sensitive skin. My skin is dry & this never irriates it or anything. If you're taking off make up this would require a few times washing though. It's perfect though if you really need something gentle.
i really wish i could find a gentle skin cleanser that i like more than cetaphil because i love luxurious beauty products and this lame bluey boy-looking bottle with the boring-looking product just isn't cutting it.but i've been using this stuff since i was a teenager, and just can't stray since it keeps my skin so nice & balanced and takes my makeup off (but of course i use a gentle eyemakeup remover first since i don't want to scrub my face too hard with anything. i am an A+ skin student).ho hum, but thank you cetaphil. i wish you would change your name to "MAGICAL CELESTIAL FACE WASH" and have sparkles on the bottle so that i would be more excited to use you every day, but for now thank you.xoooxo continued >>
This just isn't strong enough for me.. doesn't remove makeup at all. I think this is best for people with sensitive skin who do not wear foundation and only wear minimal skin enhancing makeup
I use this cleanser in the colder months as it is not strong enough to clean my oily/combination skin in the hotter months. I have to agree that this cleanser is very gentle and cleans sufficiently without removing too much oil from the skin. The cleanser does WONDERS in removing eye makeup as it doesn't sting even if it gets into your eyes.
I use this in the winter time when my skin is crazy sensitive, and it does a great job of cleaning without overdrying. I would not recommend to someone with oily skin, however for combination skin it might be ok.
I don't understand the hype either???? Positive: No irritation, cheap, umm thats it. Negative: DOESNT DO ANYTHING! I feel like I am cleaning my face with water! LITERALLY. Overall- D
I don't really understand all the hype surrounding this clenaser. My skin is slightly dry and sensitive. I'm not very acne-prone, but this left enough residue behind to give me some. I did notice that my face felt less dry while using it, but it didn't work that well at cleaning it, either.
I can see how this could be a popular cleaser. It's cheap, it doesn't irratate your skin, doesn't burn, doesn't dry out your skin...unfortunatly it doesn't really do much of anything. I usually use foaming cleasers so it was wierd going from that to cetaphil. When washing, cetaphil just felt like I was rubbing my face with a thick water like liquid or a lotion. My face didn't feel clean (the left over residue didn't help either). I just didn't like the way it left my face feeling. It also didn't seem to improve my skin at all (it didn't ruin my skin either but still). All in all, this cleaser wasn't bad but it also wasn't good. It was just "meh".
My fave cleanser! Really gentle and doesnt irritate my skin at all.Love it. I usually use foaming cleansers but i don't feel weird switching to this although it's non foaming. It obviously doesnt remove makeup as its a GENTLE cleanser people. Take off your makeup using a proper makeup remover then use the cleanser to wash the remaining residue from your face. Took one lippie off as the packaging could be improved :)
