Review of Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser by drinkmoresoup
I won't buy this again. I got this because of reviews and the BOGO deal @ Walgreens. I used to break out on my temples with little bumps and I haven't broken out there in a long time...few months. After a few days of using this, I now have two pimples on one of my temples and other clogged pores (but not pimples yet). I was really disappointed in this. I had to use J&J as a make-up remover at night prior to using this (this stuff absolutely DOES NOT remove any make-up whatsoever) and my skin was always left flaky. I used to have oily skin but after having my baby it is usually on the dry side with some flakage that disappears after my skin oils up some. I thought that the J&J was drying me out, but I didn't use the Cetaphil a few times and just used J&J and the flakes were slim to barely there. Whereas, when I was using the Cetaphil...I had major roughage! It could be the combination, but then Cetaphil still would suck for those that use make-up and have to use a separate remover. I think using two cleansers (one for make-up removal) back to back is too harsh and therefore, I only recommend Cetaphil if you do not use makeup at all. And, I too experienced a very slight burning sensation if I left this on my skin for too long. I also found that after using J&J some of the oils in my nose and surrounding areas had risen to the surface, whereas with Cetaphil I experienced no such "deep cleansing".
