I tried using this, but my face becomes incredibly red and burns a little bit. My skin is not sensitive at all - I tolerate acids and retinol with no issues - but this seems to completely wreak...

I love this gentle facial cleanser. I got a sample from my dermatologist and quickly purchased the regular size. I have extremely sensitive skin and this cleanses without stripping my face.

I started breaking out the month after I changed my cleanser to this. It doesn't clean my pores well and it leaves a grimey feeling

I like this face wash. My husband and I both use it. I don't like the pump because it clogs and my product squirts everywhere. Not a good package but a good product.

As an Esthetician I would never recommend this to anyone. It’s essentially garbage for skin. All chemicals. And if anyone is reading this Google Estheticians dislike for Cetaphil. Or why do...

This used to be the only cleanser that didn't irritate my skin. Then they went ahead and changed the formula and the new one causes burning, flaking and redness. I am now back on the hunt for a...

I like this comes in different sizes, the mini is great for if you want to try it out but don't want to commit to the full size. I feel like more brands should have mini versions of their products....

Malaysian weather causes breakout and clog pores. This should be OK in dry and clean climate but in Malaysia, it does a half-baked job of cleaning your skin and pushes dirt deeper. After a week...
