I decided to give it a try since my cousin had been using it and she really seemed to like it, but after using it a couple of times it irritated my skin really bad, left it dry, and after a couple of days I started getting little red bumps. So yeah, I won't be using it again to say the least...

I use this to wash my face at night since my Shiseido Pureness cleanser that I use in the morning, does not cut it. I have to use a cleansing oil to get my sunscreen off, plus the makeup on top of that and then the oil slick that is my face and there is still residue left before I wash my face. The cleaning oil does a great job of breaking it all down and then the Cetaphil removes all traces of everything else since there is nothing left on the cotton pad when using toner afterwards. It does not dry my skin out and it doesn't seem to break it out either. It's cheap, comes in a big bottle and I've never had an issue with the pump dispenser.

I've tried using this product several times because I've heard such good things about it. But after the last time, I'm convinced: it makes me break out. I don't know why! Every time I've used it, even just once, it makes my face break out in little, hard bumps. I always thought it must be something else, but it's definitely this that has been the common factor every time I get those bumps. I never get them otherwise. My skin was getting nice and clear, and then I washed my face the other morning with this, and bumps appeared on my chin and cheek. I was horrified! Never using this again. (My skin's not even very sensitive, don't know why it reacts like this to it.)

As a self proclaimed product junkie, I must say that this is one of the best cleansers out there. I have no acne but I have very oily skin and large pores. I find that the cetaphil does a great job at taking off makeup and leaving your face looking clean. Even with oily skin, after using this cleanser you MUST apply a moisturizer. I use this cleanser in conjunction with its oil free moisturizing cream and my skin always has a dewy fresh look.

I use this every evening when I get home from work to "take the day off." It is such a simple, non-fussy cleanser that I use to remove most of my makeup and to prep my skin for my treatments. I don't think I will ever stop using it. SIDENOTE: I think those who are unhappy with this product are getting the DAILY FACIAL CLEANSER for normal to oily skin mixed up with the GENTLE SKIN CLEANSER formulated for all skin types. The formulations are completely different. The one for oily skin lathers whereas the gentle skin cleanser is a lotion, non-lather consistency.

I bought this because my other face wash contained salicylic acid and it was drying out my skin. This does not dry out my skin at all and it works good. I never tried buying a cleanser without the ingredients that help clear acne but this worked just as good for me. It doesn't remove my make up well so I have to remove it beforehand. This is a really basic cleanser so if you're stuck on which cleanser to buy this is a good choice.. you can't really go wrong with this unless it breaks you out. The next cleanser I'm going to try is Spectro Jel since I heard it's similar to this but better. If I dislike it I'll be repurchasing this.

I'm torn with this product. I does the job - cleaning my skin. But the smell! OMG - it's horrible. Very chemically. I almost wanted to returned it after the first use. I can't tell if my face still smells of it after I've washed, or maybe I've gotten used to it and then can't smell it any more after a few minutes.

It's a clear liquid that doesn't foam up - so that took some getting used to. And it doesn't have any anti-acne ingredients (I don't think).

Not a bad product - like I said, it does the job of getting my face clean, but my skin does feel dry soon afterward. I'll be going back to my Neutrogena Acne Face Wash when I'm done with this bottle.

i like this product, i used lots of cleansers before and this is top2 i believe. It is really gentle and didnt irritated my acne at all.

update:
i have been using it for like 4 months and i love it. it works great on my acne prone skin.
i tried tha even more famous one for normal to dry skin, and that is totally different from this one, that one is like oil on your face, i hate that one.

Love, love, love this product!! A friend recommended that I use it b/c I was having some "skin issues" and I really didn't want to spend a fortune on a bunch of different products trying to find that "right one" to help solve the problem. I was a bit skeptical at first b/c it doesn't look like much when you pump it into your hand (it's clear and not very thick and doesn't foam at all). In this case though, less is more and I was pleasantly suprised at how easy it is to use. It goes on easy and washes off with very little effort. It doesn't leave any residue behind and it just gives my skin an overall clean feel. It's changed the texture of my skin and has seemed to prevent breakouts so far with regular use. The price isn't bad either for the amount that you get and it doesn't take much of the product to get the job done! I'll definetly be sticking with this cleanser for a long time!

I needed a gentle cleanser for winter, when my skin can show dry patches. This cleans it wonderfully, and leaves my skin soft. I use other products on the acne now, and leave this for removal of all the oils without drying out my skin. I should have started using this when I was fourteen, like my doctor told me to do.
