So overated as a skin cleanser; yes, it's mild, but too mild to remove make-up. The only way it's good for make-up removal is used straight, without water, and even then it's not so good. My dermatologist said it's the closest thing to water...no kidding! I use it my pro kit to clean up eye make-up smudges, but that's about it. And when the samples run out, I'll stick to my beloved L'Occitane Extra-Gentle Cleansing Water, which does a much better job of removing make-up.
I tried this a few years ago, and it didn't do a thing at all for my skin. This cleanser is not for acne-prone skin. And it's definitely not for removing heavy amounts of makeup.
Cetaphil Cleanser was an enormous disappointment for me considering the hype over it. It does not remove make-up at all. It leaves a film. In addition, it contributed to the worst breakout period of my life. I really can't recommend it despite the number of people who use it with satisfaction.
I really like this, the only problem is it doesn't take all the makeup off. I started to only use it in the morning now, and it works great to freshen up my face. I always have a bottle of this in my cabinet.
This is a staple in my bathroom. I have sensitive skin and this really calms it down and softens it. In the summers, I only use this in the mornings because it's not strong enough to wash off the effects of a hot, humid summer day, at night. However, it's perfect in the mornings when I just need a light, refreshing face wash!
Going on my 3rd purchase here! It's a good gentle cleanser for my dry sensitive skin. I use it for a lot of things. Since my skin is too sensitive to scrubs all i do is add a little sugar and mix with Cetaphil and Voila! A simple but, yet gentle scrub. I also use it on my son who is sensitive to everything. I use it in the mornings but, i gotta admitt this is NO makeup remover but, pretty good to start off the day. I totally recommend this product for sensitive skin.
this skin cleanser doesn't really work for long periods of time either. i have found that it gives me more breakouts and it leaves my skin dry. so i wouldn't purchase it again.
My doctor reccomended that I use this, but I guess it just wasn't strong enough for me, because it did nothing to help the breakouts I was having at the time. I don't really understand why so many derms reccomend it..theyre probably compensated or something for promoting this yucky stuff.
Yes this is a nice cleanser for a very sensitive skin, and it has a very light emulsion with no scent whatsoever, and does last forever!I would recommend a separate eye make up remover, as this one is not heavy enough to remove mascara or heavier eye make up. Good for a pharmacy brand.....but for me it just didn't do it - too watery & messy & does not leave that "clean" feeling to your skin!! Love the pump packaging though!
This is my favorite cleanser. It leaves no residue, keeps my skin glowing and clear. I never buy expensive cleansers anymore, this works better.
