Cetaphil Skin Cleanser is the facial skin cleanser recommended overwhelmingly by dermatologists. It beats out the high-priced competition again and again. Why? Because it is fabulous, and it works! It cleans gently without stripping your skin. No, it won't make you feel "squeaky clean" but it's actually bad for your skin to strip off so much oil that it feels "squeaky clean." Cetaphil is fabulous and I love it! I've used it almost exclusively for five years and recommend it to everyone I know. Don't listen to the poor reviews - try Cetaphil!
Not the worst product ever, but not worth the raves! If you like the gentle quality but not the filmy after-feel, try DDF Wash Off Cleanser. The best stuff on the market. A bit pricey ($23), but it lasts forever - we're talking a year for one bottle!
Ihave very dry skin that tends to break out. This has been my most successful cleanser yet.
I thought this would be a perfect cleanser for my sensitive combination skin, but it makes me break out and it's overdrying. Guess it was too good to be true!
I tried Cetaphil because I just wanted something simple and not too harsh to clean my skin. I this its too drying and I need to really moisturize after using it, and I still have dry patches even after lotion. Not good for me.
I have used Cetaphil since I was 12 and it is an excelent skin clenser for acne-prone skin. I had serious acne all through highschool, and this clenser did its best. However, if you have serious acne, you cannot depend on your clenser to clear it up - you must see your dermatoligist and use something like Retin-A or Accutane. I was put on Accutane, and that is the only thing that ever cleared up my skin. All of my dermotoligists (and I've had several) have said that Cetephil is a wonderful cleanser. If Cetephil cannot help your acne, you should probably seek prescription help.
I have combination skin--very oily and acne prone in the T-zone, dryish everywhere else. My dermatologist recommended Cetaphil, and I find it works perfectly --it's neither oily nor drying. Other products irritated my skin, but this leaves my skin soft. It's a great value, too.
its about $10, a bit pricier than other drugstore cleansers but u get a huge bottle. i love this stuff and have been using it for about 3 years. i used to have a lot of acne and this stuff did improve my skin but it look about 3-4 months for my skin to adjust. you won't get that "tight" feeling with this. the bad thing about this is it is very light and won't take your makeup off. i only use this in the mornings when i dont have makeup to remove.
I have been using this for about a month & alternate between this and the Cetaphil Normal to Oily wash. I really like it....I now realize that I was cleansing too "harshly" and coupled with all of my acne fighting products, was REALLY drying my skin out. Cleansing with cetaphil...I'm finding my AHA, BHA & BPO aren't irritating me anymore. It doesn't do a great job of removing eye makeup, but it doesn't sting my eyes at all which is a plus. It's also CHEAP, I'd rather spend my $ on products that stay on my face longer than a cleanser!
UPDATE: Probably fine for a normal/dry skin...but eventually broke me out...clogged pores, etc. No longer using.
I bought this product before it became "popular" out there and still use it. It's great for super sensitive skin but it doesn't do much for the breakouts. The dermatologist recommended this when I had severe dry skin. Thumbs up.
