This was probably the worst face wash I have ever used, at least for me it was. This broke me out so bad. I basically break out once in a while and its only a pimple or 2. But once I started using this my whole forehead was covered in breakouts. And once I stop using it my acnes cleared right up. It doesn't clean your face very well, I always feel like my fave is still dirty after washing.
Gentle and cleanses well. But it will not remove make up straight off - so you might need to use some oil/make up remover before using Cetaphil. Otherwise, not drying - which is great! Using it in conjunction with the Cetaphil moisturizer.
A great cleanser. The best thing is that it doesn't give your skin that stripped feeling and doesn't irritate your eyes. I like that it has no scent and the texture is not too thick nor too runny. I use this to cleanse my skin after removing my make-up with a baby wipe and on my eyes to rinse off the coconut oil I use to remove eye make-up.
I previously used this to remove make-up but it was not removing all the make-up. It would be fine to remove make-up on someone who wears very light make-up.
This product is great when i want to get rid of flaky skin, but if my skin is fine and smooth this cleanser feels like acid on my face. It also makes my skin very red and feel really tight. If i dont put a moistruizer right after i use this then my skin gets flaky again or really really dry. The only good quality of it is that it gets my face clean and it really good to use to get makeup off. Other then that i will probably never repurchase it again. If you have sensitive skin then be cautious if you buy this because its not worth having your face burn just to have it clean. If you need a cleanser i recommend a Aveeno one instead.
I love this stuff so much! I use this twice a day.. In the morning and after I take my makeup off with coconut oil at night! It got rid of my little black heads around my nose and I love how it doesn't make my skin dry! I get excema on my face and this keeps it mostly away. It also doesn't sting if you get it in your eyes! I use it after the coconut oil to wash it off and it takes away the rest of my makeup (not waterproof though).
I tried this cetaphil cleanser it plumped up my skin it was smooth I thought it would work.:0( three days later I noticed some red bumps like in clusters they kept coming out here and there each day new ones appeared, I keep putting alcohol on them, it flattened the red bumps out, but they kept showing up in other parts of my face.it was the plumped up skin still had the moisturizer sunk in my skin.so this does hold moisture under the skin but is taking days to go away.I won't repurchase this. UPDATE:The day I wrote this I decided the alcohol just was not working I decided to try dickinson pore perfecting witch hazel, I am in total shock my face started clearing up within the hour by morning my face was cleared up.my face is awesome right now, plump, smooth, and clear.WOW!I do use the cetaphil daily moisturizer spf and that is great it plumped my sunken cheeks out I look 30 YEARS OLD again my face is AWESOME! I USE THIS FOR MOISTURIZING, DICKINSON PORE PERFECTING WITCH HAZEL FOR CLEANSING, AND PLAIN VASELINE UNDER MY EYES! And I look 30 again WOW I LOOK GREAT!
People seem to love or hate this cleanser. Put me in the "hate" group.
I tried this years ago because my derm at the time recommended it for my oily, combo, acne prone, sensitive skin. Derms just seem to love Cetaphil more than anything, it seems.
My skin dries out very easily from sulphates in cleansers, but because this was non-foaming, I thought it would be gentle on my skin. Nope. This stings my skin. Not terribly bad, but gives my skin a slight burning sensation to let me know that my skin does not like this.
I also do not feel like this gets my face clean. I did try the Cetaphil cleanser for oily skin but hated the overpowering chemical smell and it stripped my skin.
If your derm recommends this (which they probably will, I swear I think derms own stock in this stuff) try and get a sample from them first. The only good thing I can think about of this cleanser is that it is fragrance free.
My skin freaked out when I used this cleanser. It was SO SO raw and red after a few weeks or so of use. It is strange to me that this is billed as a gentle cleanser when it has some very harsh ingredients (sulphates, parabens).
The Cetaphil moisturizer also made my skin very irritated.
I have oily skin and this is my HG face cleanser. Anything else is either too harsh or makes me break out. This removes my makeup very well. It doesn't leave my skin extremely dry, nor does it leave it greasy either. It leaves my skin feeling refreshed. I use it in the morning when I wake up and at night before bed. I love that it comes with a pump and not a squeeze bottle.
very gentle and brillant to use before acne treatments/bp cream. with the assistance of a cotton round it also removes makeup with ease !
