I have oily acne-prone skin, and this cleanser is gentle enough that it leaves my skin clean, but doesn't strip off the top protective layer and cause me to break out. Sometimes I have to wash twice, because it is very gentle, but I can't go without this now.
I've been using this product on and off for the last 13 years and this is the best cleanser for sensitive skin. However, I also have oily and acne-prone skin so this does not help in those areas but it does not make it worse.
I use this in the morning for a gentle, non-abrasive cleanse, non-reactive cleanse just to get rid of any oil and dust that settled on my skin at night. I use this on it's own and rinse with water after. I also find that this is good for prepping the skin before makeup as there is a light film of moisture on my skin.
Overall, you can't really go wrong with this product. I do have to say that this works better than the formula for oily skin. That one actually leaves my skin a bit bumpy.
My daily cleanser.
It's so gentle I can't believe how good it works. I use it after I remove makeup and then go to sleep feeling great.
I'd recommend this for:
Body and face
Really good at doing what it claims. Doesn't give you as clean of a feel as other products but hey, it's strikes a good balance between gentleness and efficacy.
Good value for money too.
One lippie off for poor texture.
Whenever my skin is going through a horrible time and I can't use my usual cleansers and face scrubs, I use this. This cleanser will not dry out your face, or leave it oily. It has a light scent to it, and a runny liquid-y texture. It will clean off any residue you have on your skin without stripping the natural oils or irritating your face. If you have very sensitive skin or your skin is very very dry and you can't use your normal cleansers - give this one a try. I always have the big size of it with the pump under my skink for when I need it!!
Although this cleanser seems to be mild enough for sensitive skin, i feel as though it didn't take all of my makeup off. Although it left my skin feeling soft, I didn't like greasy texture, I prefer a cleanser to make my skill feel clean.
This is absolutely my HG facial cleanser. I have incredibly sensitive (break out with ANYTHING), combination/oily, acne-prone skin. I've tried basically every out there from Proactiv to higher end cleansers like Shu Uemura or Lancome. I have to say for us acne-prone girls, this i ABSOLUTELY the best product out there. It's super gentle, cleans very well, and leaves my skin feeling fresh and soft. Highly recommend it if you're looking for a good cleanser that is mild for everyone.
This is an OK basic cleanser.
The only thing I don't understand is the fact that it contains SLS and doesn't foam up which causes me to use a lot more product.
I still like it though and will continue to purchase.
I have eczema, so I have been using Cetaphil products since I was probably in 1st grade. Many years have passed, but I still use this everyday to remove my makeup. It doesn't dry my skin or break me out, and leaves me feeling clean. You dont even have to use water- it removes everything after massaging my face for 30 secs and rubbing off with a facial tissue
I have skin conditions that make my skin super sensitive and somewhat drier than most. I have gone to many dermatologists in my lifetime. I live in Miami so there are some great ones here and they all claimed that this would help keep my acne under control and it would gently cleanse my skin. i felt as if i was rubbing lotion on my face. my face was more oilier than usual and it seemed to leave a film. it made my acne worse and i just didnt like the way it made my skin feel in general. i personally know people that use this consistently and have beautiful skin. This just didnt work for me.
