I started using Cetaphil about 2 months ago and I LOVE IT! I don't understand why so many people say it doesn't remove their makeup! It takes all my makeup off-including eye makeup! It probably wouldn't remove waterproof mascara, but it takes off regular mascara just fine. I use a soft washcloth and rinse it off afterwards. This is actually the first cleanser I have ever used that has CLEARED up my skin. All these years I have been using harsh acne soaps and cleansers and they didn't do squat-except burn and dry out my face! I don't know, maybe I am just lucky, but my face hasn't looked this good since before puberty!!! :^P So I am going to keep buying this stuff. The price is also a big plus! It did take a little while to get used to how boring this cleanser is- no smell or foam, but now it is no big deal...

I love Cetaphil, but only as a morning cleanser, and I can use it at night if I remove my make up with a make-up remover first. It leaves my skin nice and soft and I dont dry out.

I use Cetaphil on my sensitive skin in the evenings before I go to bed. It's nice -- it doesn't break me out, it doesn't dry me out, and it rinses clean (eventually). It's a great, basic, non-irritating cleanser, which is exactly what it's advertised as. However, it doesn't remove eye makeup at all, or even regular makeup when applied heavily for an event. I have to use a lot of this product for it to cleanse without absorbing into my skin, so a bottle doesn't really last me very long. I've found that the best way to get results from Cetaphil is to remove your makeup FIRST, with a gentle makeup remover like Lancome's Bi-Facil, then rub a generous amount of the Cetaphil between your hands (to warm it up a little -- otherwise it's really cold and slimy) and apply all over your face. Massage it in for about a minute, or until all the slime feels warm. Rinse VERY WELL with warm water, using a washcloth, if necessary. Follow up with a good moisturizer. Obviously, this process is a pain in the a$$, so I'm always on the lookout for something new. Unfortunately, I have yet to find anything better for my picky, picky skin. UPDATE 4/28/03: I have found that Chantecaille's Flower Infused Cleansing Milk does a better job of removing makeup, is even more gentle, and has a nicer smell than Cetaphil. It's pricey, but seems worth it so far (using it since 4/25). It is very expensive, though, so I'll keep the Cetaphil around in case I'm broke when I run out of the Chantecaille!

I do not understand what the big deal is with Cetaphil. I have used better cleansers. The reason it is not an extremely harsh cleanser is because it doesn't seem to cleanse at all.

horrible--does not clean, does not soothe, plus you end up using three times more than you should to have SOME kind of result, which makes skin feel real tight... yet still not clean!

Mmkay, so a friend of mine let me in on a little Cetaphil secret (can't name names, and i can't really verify with a doctor, but...). She told me that dermatologists (yes, including yours!) get a cut of the profits whenever general purchases of Cetaphil and Neutrogena go up in their regions. This seems to be the ONLY logical reason why so many skin doctors would recommend such a crappy, counterproductive "cleanser" to soooo many of us oily skinned ladies. I used Cetaphil once, and it was a joke! Awful. I have to say, though, that Neutrogena has always worked wonders for me, so maybe this rumor is only half true??

What is the big deal on this product? It didn't even clean my skin! I still had makeup coming off on the towel. I would never recommend this to anyone. I can't believe dermatologists recommend this stuff to people. Blecch.

Great for someone with dry skin. However, I have combination acne skin and it felt like it left a film even when washed off. I'm an Esthetician, and wouldn't recommend this to clients unless they wanted something that provided extra moisture. Plus, with no lather, it's hard to determine it's cleansing abilities.

I agree with the reviewer who said it is good for cleaning "m/u-free" skin, but if you have m/u on ... forgeddah aboud id ....I just can't use it though! It clogged me up *SKIN THAT IS* ...My SO however is getting use out of the huge bottle I purchased ... works for his dry skin ... and since he is a "manly man" he cannot do a whole routine of skin care ... so this is good for him while he is in the shower ... quick easy and moisturizes too!(UPDATE: My SO can no longer use it as he says that it burns his skin! I think he is lying though .. he just does not want to use it! hehehe ... but honestly I don't think he would lie about something like this ... I found it strange because it, in all reality, is a very gentle cleanser ... I stick to my review but thought I would add this much.)

I feel so sorry, Shamrocked...however I really like it!! I don't think it will remove foundation though. I did not even try it. HOWEVER, I use it in the morning and it is so great!! I wash my face with water afterwards. I also tried removing my eye make up with it and to my surprise it removed my eye make up perfectly including mascara!!
