Recommended to by my dermatologist as a non-irritating cleanser. This is great for times when my skin is misbehaving. Removes makeup, though not mascara or liner. Leaves my skin soft and smooth. Doesn't lather or foam, so those who like a more "active" cleanser may not care for Cetaphil. However, I can depend on this when my skin cannot tolerate anything else.
I just tried a sample of this and although I liked that it felt like it got my oily skin really clean without stripping or leaving a film (like the regular Cetaphil does), I did not like the strong, baby powdery fragrance, It lingered on my face even after I dried it, and I rinsed thoroughly. It also made the creases of my nose burn, which I've never had happen with any cleanser before. So I'll pass on this one...
I have very dry, very sensitive, break-out prone skin. This cleanser takes off the makeup, has a lovely and pleasant--but not overpowering--smell, and doesn't strip my skin completely of all its moisture. As the weather is getting colder, however, I feel my skin is getting a bit dry in patches. Not sure if it's my skin or the cleanser, but in the meantime I'll just keep using it. Can't beat the price!
Cetaphil Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin does a great job of keeping my skin clean and clear. I do use a makeup remover before washing my face. I want to make sure every last trace of makeup is gone. Cetaphil is cheap and the bottle lasts a long time. After years of searching for my HG cleaner, I've found it with Cetaphil Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin.
Fantastic Product. Very Gentle. It does a fair job removing makeup. I would recommend it as a morning cleanser.
This product is ok, it's a little drying on my skin. I love the pump, so easy to use in the shower. But it's the smell that I hate, I may use it all, I may not...it smells gross.
I love this cleanser. It does a great job of removing makeup but at the same time is gentle, non-irritating and non-drying. It even removes stubborn water resistant sunscreen which other cleansers don't seem to budge. The pump dispenser is great, it is cheap, and it lasts a long time. I actually buy the Target brand of this....so it's even cheaper.
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.
