Great for sensitive skinJul 28, 2013
By Taylor Smith
I have sensitive skin that tends to be dry, so I have to be very careful about what I use as cleansers and moisturizers. I love this cleanser. It is very gentle, I started using it when my daughter was born - she had baby eczema and needed a very soothing wash. This was perfect for her skin condition, and I started to use it when I ran out of my own cleanser and found that it was wonderful for my skin. I think I keep the company in business just with my purchases. I think this would be great for any type of skin, but if you have sensitive skin, I highly recommend it. For those who have sensitive skin and need a great moisturizer, especially if you are looking for a great anti-aging cream, in my travels through sensitive territory I found Bel Essence All-Natural Anti-Wrinkle Treatment - Intensive Anti Aging, Facial Lift Skin Care Formula - 1.5oz. It's all natural, gentle, and the oils in the cream really transform your skin. I had scaly, grey skin on my elbows and hands and within a week of using the cream, the difference was huge, and after about 6 weeks, my elbows and hands are as soft as my 3-year old's. This cleanser and the cream have made a complete difference in my skin.
Update: After getting so many comments on how great my skin looked, I took a good look in the mirror, and saw that the lines on my face from sunbathing so much (I don't do that hardly at all any more), are so much better. The lines on my forehead are so much lighter and the lines at the corner of my eyes are hardly noticeable. Just goes to show that natural and gentle can work just as well as heavy duty treatments!

for real?Nov 12, 2010
okay, i never had teen acne, not even in my 20's. I'm 33 now. I started breaking out 2 years ago in January and I have purchased COUNTLESS products (mostly from Amazon because of the reviews) to treat the acne. I mean rose water, putting sandalwood powder, potato skins, lemon juice, masks, peels, all the 'acids' that they sell on this site to fight the acne scars, pills, man you name it. I bought this Cetaphil gentle cleanser 4 weeks ago and my acne .... just ..... stopped. I use it when I shower, then use Cetaphil's Moisturing Lotion while my face is semi-wet after the shower. Trust me, this has been an ef'd up journey that has somewhat zapped me of my self-esteem and confidence and Cetaphil, thus far, has pulled through. I'll update if it fails. Like Drake, y'all can Thank Me Later :) One.

Cetaphil is best for me year after yearMar 09, 2009
By J. Offenbach
When I find a product to be excellent, I tend to remain loyal. I may try others, but I return to the one which continues to prove it's excellence year after year. Despite more costly products I've tried as samples, Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser has been my cleanser of choice for many years. I've tried a generic brand from CVS and found it to be much more slimy and thick than the real thing and gave it away to a less scrutinizing customer.
My skin and eyes are extremely sensitive and can become dry, so I am very cautious when trying new products. This one was recommended by a dermatologist and I'm very grateful for the suggestion because it meets my desires in a cleanser. It is extremely gentle, fragrance free and can be used directly on my eyes. I apply it onto my dry face, rub it all over, including the eyelids, then rinse it off and pat my face dry. Although it comes in a pump bottle, I put a little in a sample size bottle because that takes up less space in the medicine cabinet and I never have drips fall anywhere. I wash the little bottle to keep it germ free. I gave a large bottle to my sister because she was so impressed by the cleansing power, too. Her initial reaction was that it was a little slimy, but after using it as I suggested, she agreed that it is a superior product and a bargain. In all honesty, I don't know if she's returned to using CHANEL cleanser, but I am as faithful to Cetaphil as I am to Kiehl's for all other skin care products. If you too have sensitive skin, try the Kiehl's Cucumber Tonic after cleansing for a nice treat.

The best cleanserJun 08, 2011
By Armi Castro
I was using cetaphil in my earlier years...(HS) and my skin was perfect, everyone complimented me for my skin. Then I grew up...saw things on TV and magazines, and had my own money to buy these things and my skin got so bad. In my 30's now, and I am experiencing having acne for the first time. I know it is such a cliche but I have tried from Proactiv, to Mario Badescu (which made my skin even worse) Neutrogena, The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil, scrubbing, exfoliating, drinking gallons of water, but nothing worked. So I have decided to go back to Cetaphil, I thought it was just a cleanser with no acne fighting ingredients but I didn't care anymore, I was exhausted and I didn't want to experiment, and now it has been a month and I don't have breakouts on my face anymore, just some scars from old pimples that are healing now. Cetaphil is a really great product and now my daily regimen is just so simple, wash my face in the morning and at night, no creams to put on after wards, no toners or serum, just wet, wash, rinse and dry.

Gentle, but does contain questionable ingredientsMay 24, 2009
By Amazon Customer
"Student of Presence"
My dermatologist gave me a free sample of this after being diagnosed with facial eczema. Here are the pros: gentle, non-irritating, fragrance free, won't burn even on inflamed skin.
Now the cons: contains parabens and SLS's. I won't get into why these chemicals are bad for us here, please take a moment to research those to form your own opinion. Also this cleanser has like a mucus texture to it. Kinda gross feeling.
It doesn't lather either. But it does remove make-up, and any other gook on your face.
I do pair this with Cetaphil Fragrance Free Moisturizing Lotion, 16-Ounce Bottles (Pack of 2), which I do recommend highly.
Bottom line is it's gentle for even the most sensitive skin, but I'm gonna keep looking for a natural alternative that won't burn my skin.
And I'll hope Cetaphil gets with the program and removes the parabens and sulfates, as a lot of other beauty products have followed suit too.
