    Comments about Cetaphil DermaControl Oil Control Foam Wash:

    I am 41 years old, and have, until about two years ago, been blessed with acne-free skin. Sure, I would occasionally get a pimple, but only whiteheads, and they would clear up and be gone in 3-4 days. About two years ago, I started to get acne cysts. The super-duper painful zits that don't ever get a head. And they would linger for a month or more. Recently, my cystic acne was getting so bad that I went to a dermatologist. She prescribed an antibiotic, which I've been on for two weeks now and is really clearing things up. But she also recommended this face wash. My skin had become so irritated and angry, probably exacerbated by all the OTC products I had been trying, that I was not expecting much from this face wash. Boy, was I wrong! The foam is very gentle on my skin, and leaves it feeling clean (I remove my makeup first with a wipe). It really seems to tone down the shine, but doesn't leave me looking dull, either. I think it has a very pleasant smell - clean and fresh, not medicine-y. I use it in the morning, and again at bedtime. I do find that it does make my skin feel a bit tight, but the Cetaphil Dermacontrol Moisturizer takes all that tight feeling away, and also controls shine. Best of all, I haven't had any new breakouts! I am very happy with this product.

    Comments about Cetaphil DermaControl Oil Control Foam Wash:

    I see a lot of posts about people complaining that this product made their skin more oily and the reason why is probably because they didn't moisturize. Even if you have the oiliest skin in the world you MUST moisturize immediately after washing your face! (especially after using this product) If you use a deep cleansing wash like this (which leaves skin feeling so clean btw) but don't moisturize, your pores will produce more oil to compensate. I used to have extremely oily skin and used this wash every day, twice a day, always moisturizing after, and my skin would love it. Even now, I no longer have oily skin because I went through an Accutane regiment for 6months but I use this the same way and it never dries out/irritates my skin because I always use Garnier Moisture Rescue moisturizer after. My face has never felt cleaner :)

      Comments about Cetaphil DermaControl Oil Control Foam Wash:

      I'm a budget buyer, but when my dermatologist suggested this (kind-of expensive) skincare regimen, I knew I needed to just spend the money. It was worth it!! This works well with my current acne medication and doesn't irritate my skin at all. I use this face wash at night to remove makeup, and in the morning I use my prescription acne wash and Cetaphil Oil-Control SPF 30 face lotion. Works great together.

            I have oily and shiny skin. This face wash did not help at all. It left my face extremely shiny and even more oily than before I used it! I could see the oil coming out of my pores. It was disgusting! I am not happy with this product at all.

                    At first, I loved this. I found it was really controlling my oil, however, in the long run, my skin produced more oil to compensate for this product. My skin got confused and I got extremely oily, but I also had dry patches (which I never get).

                    Gentle enough for all skin types, but daily use leaves skin flaky and dry.
