I don't why but since I've been using this cleanser I've been getting clogged pores and my skin texture has changed, I think the reason being is that it doesn't remove makeup effectively and even though I wash twice with this cleanser my skin may have hidden makeup, however it's very gentle and doesn't over dry the skin but doesn't do absolutely nothing.
I know a lot of people love this product. Sadly, I am not one of them. I will say that it cleaned my skin very very well. I did like the texture and the fact that it didn't foam, I felt like it coated my face nicely. Unfortunately, it wasn't gentle enough for my very sensitive skin and it was causing rosacea flare ups. Definitely not for me!
On my second bottle. No need to reiterate what the rest is saying...that it doesn't remove make up and what not. I have dry skin. I used clean and clear prior to this but my skin got into a phase of breaking out every week, leaving me a ton of hyperpigmentation scars. Some say that perhaps I'm stripping too much moisture from my already dehydrated skin and suggested using this with the clarisonic. Wasn't used to the texture at first, and even though everyone claims using this with clarisonic is the bomb, i didnt see much changes in the first month.
2nd month - I decided to add baking soda to the face wash instead of using my clarisonic. Doing so made my skin sooo smooth. No flaking or dryness. After about a good 5 months, my skin is doing SO MUCH BETTER. No more breakouts, acne marks are fading, very few white heads.
The baking soda is what really did the trick for me. Just add 1 part baking soda 1 part cetaphil. Mix'em up and start to very gently scrub and massage your face for a whole minute. Rinse, and you're done!
Love this so much! If you have dry skin, give this a shot!
I've been using this product for about a year now and I think it will forever be my favorite cleanser.
First of all, it's very cheap and easy to find just about anywhere (no joke, even at our local gas station) and I love the smell, it's not too strong yet has just a small, bright scent that feels clean.
Second, the texture is great, it feels so smooth and easy to apply and wash off. I use my Clarisonic Mia to lather it up and it make my face feel so clean and fresh and soft, and has also significanty helped my acne over the months.
I havent used this cleanser but saw a review saying people you dont know to use.but some saying unrespectful things not others who explain in a gentle way.first you learn that cleansing lotion style cleanser or similar stuff may be used in both way rinse off or tissue of none is wrong.you dont know anything.also people may feel dry even after great ones because everybody has different skin so let me say you even bioderma sensibio water dried me but shocking more than lancome comfort foaming cream cleanser.so learn to respect but more learn to think "large view" or get sense,respect people because you are the one ignorant.I see these reviews everywhere so requring teaching them they are the ones who even cant see different views ,cant respect because they even cant think
I originally bought this product from a recommendation from a dermatologist for my eczema. Granted it did leave my face slightly more moisturized then just washing my face with water. But that was only having to scrub roughly with a washcloth to get off part of the makeup and the rest I had to get off with my original face wash. I gave it a chance hoping that I tried different things such as leaving it to sit for a few minutes to disintegrate the makeup: no luck on anything I tried. My face just kept on getting drier and patcher as I used it. I finally got fed up with it and switched back to my regular face wash. I came across it today and considered using it again before I looked at the ingredients:
Cetyl alcohol = Essentially wax
Methylparaben = Cancerous
Propylparaben = Cancerous
Butylparaben = Cancerous
These are leading ingredients in the cleanser and essentially ‘toxic waste’ for your face. I will not buy again and advise people not to but it.
I have been suffering from acne for almost a year after I stopped taking birth control pills. No product was helping me to clear my acne. When I made up my mind to see a dermatologist I came across this cleanser. I gave it a try. I'm using this cleanser along with cetaphil moisturizer. The cleanser is mild. Doesn't irritate my skin and doesn't make my skin red &/or dry. I don't use makeup/foundation. I simply use moisturizer and mineral powder. This cleanser can't remove the mineral powder completely. I use Olay Regenerist Detoxifying Pore Scrub to remove the leftover/residue. This scrub is amazing for my sensitive skin and doesn't make my skin red. This regime is actually helping me with breakouts. My skin is no more super oily. Its clearing my skin also.
I would definitely recommend this product if you have sensitive skin. continued >>
I really wanted to like it, but......I hate this stuff. It made my skin feel rough and it totally dried it out! It says non-irritating but it made my skin so red and kind of itchy. And when it comes to cleansing I wash my face like I'm petting a new born kitten so it definitely wasn't my fingers that caused the redness! :)
This cleanser is my favorite so far. I don't think it can remove all makeup on its own though. I use makeup wipes first then this. It's so gentle on my sensitive, acne prone skin. I can use this around my eye area without stinging or drying. Love this stuff. :)
I wear makeup on an almost daily basis. Cetaphil is the 2nd step in my 2 part cleansing regiment. I firstly use olive oil to massage my entire face ( i have dry skin so i can tolerate this) to loosen up the makeup. Then i pour about a tbsp of cetaphil into the palm of my hand and massage it onto my face (ontop of the olive oil) then i use a wet face cloth to rinse and wipe off the olive oil/cetaphil mixture from my face. then Voila, clean and moisturized. In most case i don't even need any add'l moisturizer, just maybe a bit of coconut oil aroud the eye area. Cetaphil alone definitely will not remove makeup!
