I love this cleanser. I find it better and less drying than cetaphil. My skin still feels a little tight and dry after use but it is by far the best drugstore find for my ultra dry, sensitive, dermatitis prone skin. I will definitely re-purchase this again. I am still looking for an even more hydrating, foam-free, gentle facial cleanser. If anyone has any recommendations, let me know.
I bought this bar yesterday when I ran out of my CeraVe hydrating cleanser. I have been having some skin issues (dry, flaky, rough, hot skin) and have been seeing a dermatologist to try to figure out what is wrong. I did not want to re-purchase an entire new bottle of CeraVe if she was just going to tell me to buy something else 3 weeks from now so I bought this bar because it was cheap and said it was for dry skin. The bar really does make your face feel squeaky clean and soft after use but I still think it is too drying for me. I used the cleasner 4 hours ago and my skin is still very tight and I also feel my skin is "burning" and feels more "hot" that when I just use the CeraVe. I think I will just stick to my CeraVe. This bar strips too much of my much needed natural oils.
