To be clear this is a review for the Daily Facial Cleanser from CETAPHIL, not the original 'Gentle' Skin Cleanser from CETAPHIL. This product has recently undergone a complete reformulation in the...

Strongly scented. Smells a little like the scent in Differin facewash, which I had a reaction to. And this is even more potent. So rather than chance skin trouble again, this is already a no....

I always thought this product was gentle but it turns out it was drying out my skin and making my acne worse. My face was constantly red. Oily skin. I switched to Vanicream and I'm very happy.

Odd thing: I tried this years ago, and it did nothing for my oily skin. Fast forward 30 years.. and it's a holy grail product for me. I have sensitive, redness prone, reactive skin. Most...

I used this cleanser for 1.5 months. About a month in, I noticed lots of little bumps on my cheeks, which was weird because my cheeks are very easy to manage and rarely break out. I didn't think...

I have been using this face wash for a week and my entire face is breaking out and tight feeling. I have oily combination acne prone skin and I wanted a non irritating face wash and Cetaphil seemed...
