Good stuff! This doesn't irritate my acne-prone skin, or cause breakouts (it even worked wonders to soothe badly sunburned shoulders once). It does have a slight scent but I don't mind it at all. I can't speak to its ability to remove makeup, since I don't wear foundation often, and when I do, it's disappeared by the end of the day anyway.

I ordered this online after seeing lots of folks recommending it on the skin care board, however it does not remove makeup very well and it did cause some dryness.

I used this cleanser before as recommanded by my derm, and now I picked it up again since it's getting rave reviews. However, I'll have to disagree with the "non-irritating" part of the claim. It contains ethanol, which is one form of alcohol that "can be extremely drying and irritating to skin." (Check Cosmetic Dictionary from Paula's choice website - alcohol) Every time I use this cleanser, I can detect an alcohol scent. My face is red and itchy after every wash. I initially didn't think the irritation was caused by this cleanser. For some reason, I switched to another cleanser for two nights and my face stopped itching and looked much better. This isn't the cleanser for me.

This is SO much better than Cetaphil! It doesn't leave a film after you wash with it and it is very gentle. I usually just splash with water in the mornings but if I've used a treatment overnight and need to wash it off, I turn to this. It claims to be unfragranced but I still detect a scent of some sort - but it is mild and goes away after a minute. I don't think this has enough cleansing power to remove makeup, though, as it does not have any lather. However, I am wary of products that claim to do it all, so I will use this for mornings as needed, and rely on other cleansers for evenings. I will definitely repurchase this.

I tried both the Jel and the Derm and really wanted to like them. The Derm actually left me drier than the Jel, which is weird cuz its for dry skin. I liked the Jel better, but it made me kinda itchy (like cetaphil). I do think it's worth trying for those who can't use cetaphil, my skin is just uber-picky about cleansers:)

This is a great cleanser, the only one that leaves my skin feeling balanced, clean, and baby bum soft. It's not great for makeup removal, so do that first with another cleanser, then use this. Not need for toner or heavy moisturizers after. A great, slippery, gel consistency, scented or non, good price. What Cetaphil was supposed to be.

I really like this product! Like many women who are using this, I was previously using Cetaphil and needed something that didn't feel quite so mucusy and actually felt like it was getting something off my face. I only use this in the morning as it does not get off any makeup whatsoever. I really like the fact that it is extremely gentle and also antibacterial.

I never imagined that I could find something better the Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser. Spectro Jel is definitely better and I love it because it cleanses my skin w/o drying it or living a film behind . It is cheaper then Cetaphil too and I use way less product so I spend less money in the end.
After washing my face with Spectro Jel , my skin looks like I just used a clay mask , the pores are less visible , the skin is clean but not dry and it glows .
Spectro Jel is a clear / transparent gel, reminds me of aloe vera gel. It is not runny or creamy (like Cetaphil GC) , it doesn’t foam at all though so I do not know if it is good in taking makeup off (I do not use makeup) .It comes in a big bottle (500 ml – more then CGC ) and it has a very useful pomp.
It is antibacterial , has no fragrance and it is formulated for sensitive skin , unlike Cetaphil , it doesn’t contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate ,this was the biggest reason that made me switch to this cleanser .
I recommend this to anyone that didn’t had luck with Cetaphil , people that have acne and are using harsh treatments . It doesn’t cost a lot and it comes in 2 sizes so you could buy the smaller bottle and see if it works for you , the price was 5 cnd for the small one and 12 for the big bottle , I got it at the drug mart so it was wayyy more expensive then you could find it at Wal-Mart or Walgreen’s.
I wish I could give this 10 lipsticks …lol .

I bought this several years ago on the recommendation of my derm at the time. It's great, a very gentle cleanser that doesn't dry my skin out. It's not good as a makeup remover, though, so if you wear lots of makeup, I'd use something else to remove it first. In comparison, Cetaphil was bleh and felt like it left a film on my skin whereas Spectro Jel rinses off cleanly. Other than both cleansers being gentle, I don't think they are comparable because this is a non-foaming gel cleanser whereas Cetaphil is creamier. I like the packaging (pump dispenser).

I've recently read so much about the Spectro Gel that I just had to give it a try. Well, I ended up purchasing the Spectro Derm...made especially for dry sensitive skin. It was very reasonably priced, especially at the $10.50 sales price($12 for 500ml). I've only used it a few times but I'm happy with the results thus far. It left my skin feeling soft and moisturized. It also worked beautifully at removing all traces of makeup. The only down side is that is has rather strong fragrance...slightly medicinal.

I buy and re-buy this product. It is a staple of my skincare routine. I love it -- the texture seemed a little weird at first, (almost like mucus, ugh), but I've gotten totally used to it. It cleanses without that tight dry feeling, and really works great on my acne-prone skin. I only use the unscented (I hate fragrance in my skincare). It does get makeup off fairly well, but I prefer to use a wipe first anyway if I'm wearing a full face.

I think this cleanser is marketed as Spectro Derm in the States. This is a really good non-soap cleanser. I feel that it is better than Cetaphil and was recommended by my dermatologist, but I never see anything about it on the net. It claims to be "a natural moisturizer and deep pore cleanser rendering the skin soft and revitalized" which I feel it does, and it is also anti-bacterial. Like Cetaphil, you can use it wet or dry. It has more of a slippery texture than Cetaphil, which I prefer. It comes in scented and non, and I really like the smell of the scented (which I can't describe) but some may not. The non-scented is often recommended for those using harsh acne products or those with skin disorders because it doesn't contain irritants and is very gentle. No it doesn't have a fancy bottle and doesn't have any fancy ingredients (which sometimes gets to me, I admit), but if you are looking for a great, non-soap cleanser and aren't completely satisfied with Cetaphil, give this a try. It is $10 Canadian for 500 ml and comes in a handy pump dispenser. *One caveat: I don't wear foundation, but I don't think this would remove heavier or long-wearing makeup very well.
