i was really disappointed with this product, especially after reading such great reviews on it. it did absolutely nothing for my skin besides take off makeup. aside from that, it felt like there was simply nothing to it... no oil control, no moisture, no improvement in skin texture or tone. maybe i should use the gentle formula but i personally would not recommend this to someone unless they had sensitive skin. anyone who doesnt have sensitive skin should look elsewhere.
This is my everyday cleanser. I like it because it very gentle and non-drying. I have oily-combo, acne-prone skin so this cleanser is perfect because I tend to use benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, and alpha hydroxy products often which dry out and make my skin sensitive. I like to use a face sponge with this cleanser. It's great to keep in the shower as well. It's also inexpensive so that's another bonus. I have repurchased and would highly recommend.
This is the only cleanser I can use for my dry, sensitive skin. It also helps prevent breakouts. Aveeno didn't do it for me, nor did neutrogena. Both were too harsh. Cetaphil is really excellent.
I can't find this stuff anywhere anymore! This is the only cleanser aside from Aveeno Positively Radiant that actually made my skin look nice as opposed to just cleaning it. I would definitely buy it again if I could just find it around here somewhere...
This cleanser was too strong for my oily skin, and left it feeling stripped, tight and dry. It did effectively and efficiently remove physical sunscreen with only one wash.
The smell was medicinal, but acceptable. I assume (do not recall) that it is fragrance-free, so the smell is not a problem.
I have very sensitive skin, and did not have any problem with redness or allergic bumps.
I will continue to use the Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser until I find a cleanser that is both gentle and efficient.
Love, love, love.
I have oily/combo acne-prone skin. This leaves my skin feeling really clean, but not dried out, because it's a Cetaphil product! It also cuts through my makeup at the end of the day.
I was using the gentle cleanser, which I still have on hand when I don't wear makeup and my skin doesn't feel too oily. This cleanser, though, is the ticket to my skin type. I could not recommend it more if you have oily/acne-prone skin or you want a cleanser that will remove your makeup but not make your skin feel like the desert.
nice cleanser for my skin type (combo to oily)... dont know if it takes makeup off or not (i use a cleansing wipe for that)... be careful not to get it into the eyes, it burns slightly... can be a bit drying, but for me any gentle foaming cleanser does that... might repurchase or come back to it if other cleansers dont work out...
My favorite cleanser for my aging but still somewhat oily skin. I love it because it is non-sudsing and rinses off very quickly and easily. It cleans well, getting off layers of sunblock and mineral foundation without leaving my skin tight or dry. I wish it weren't quite so highly fragranced, but in a way I like the antiseptic smell. The pump bottle is well designed, stable and makes the product even easier to use.
This is a very basic, no-frills cleanser - it is clear with a light gel-like consistency, and it comes in a bottle that includes a pump for dispensing.
It gets the job done: cleans my face, removes my makeup, all without over-drying my face or causing breakouts. I love knowing that if I get any breakouts, this neither causes them nor makes them worse.
This is a good cleanser, took all my makeup off, (regular not waterproof mascara), and did not irritate my eyes or skin. I would buy this again.
