Burns my skin ever since I started on Retin-A. Used to be able to use it now I can't. It's good and cleans well and doesn't leave a residue. It removes sunscreen too. I will either quit Retin-A and...

So much for being oil free. This has castor oil in it! Why lie and say it's oil free? Does that make any sense the kind for oily skin would have oil in it? Castor oil is an irritant and isn't...

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....

Way too drying. This left my face feeling tight. I don't mind fragrance in some cases but this was just too much. But what really sealed its fate was when it didn't even break down my concealer...

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.

I really like this skin cleanser, it cleaned my face very well without drying out my skin or breaking it out and seemed to improve my skin by making it clearer and softer. It also has a very mild...

Honestly, it's not that great. It has a very strong medicine smell, which fills my nose every time I use it. It barely foams and leaves a lot of makeup residue, which other cleansers usually don't....

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...
