Most Helpful Positive Review WORKED WONDERS!
Like any product, what might work for me, might not for you. Anyways, I tried this wash once, and I thought that its fragrance would irritate my skin, and that it made me break out worse, so I stuck to the foaming wash by Cetaphil. Then, a couple months later I noticed that I was getting dry, and I wanted something to exfoliate my skin without salicylic acid. I tried this again, and two months in I'm still loving it! It helped my skin cell turnover unlike many cleansers. It left my skin supple, without over drying. Give it at least a month for results. I have tried so many products, and have visited countless dermatologists. This product is great for mild, reactive skin that breaks out because of dead skin and dirt accumulating in pores. Great after makeup wipes too!
Most Helpful Critical Review My skin felt clean but..
I used this for a week and my skin felt great and nice and clean and didn't over dry. But then after the week I used this. I got really bad white heads over all my face and broke out with really painful acne. It's not sure if it was drawing everything out or just too harsh for my face. I do give products a couple chances, so I will try again. Maybe it gets worse before it gets better but my skin wasn't that bad because the Cetaphil normal to oily cleanser really has been helping me. I just was looking for something to remove the dead skin and give it a good scrub. I don't really know if I would recommend to very sensitive oily skin it might get worse?

Burned my skin
Donna from New York
I used it on my face and within a week of using it it burned my skin I am very disappointed with cetaphil because I have been using it for years I decide to try something new and bam my skin is ruined I would not recommend
MissMV from Orange County
I alternate between this scrub and their foaming cleanser. I like Cetaphil products because they don't use harmful ingredients and fragrances. That being said, it does sting a little but only around my nose area. I might just have dry skin there.
Burned My Skin
Nikki from Clearwater, FL
I tried it once and it started to burn almost immediately. I thought maybe it was a result of other products in my routine so I tried it again before using anything else on my face and it started to burn again almost immediately.
Burns when applied to face
C from NC
I usually love cetaphil products but this burns when applied. I did a quick google search and other complain of the same issue
Upset from Georgia
Left me with chemical burns on my face
Will buy again!
EllasOwen from Connecticut
I started by using this product every day, but it was a bit drying. After switching to every other day, my skin is clearing up quickly (within 2 weeks of starting use) and not overly dry. I love a good exfoliation and my skin needs it to stay relatively clear- this gives a good scrub but it's so fine it doesn't hurt my skin. Win-win in my book!
Micaela from Statham, GA
This product is part of my evening routine, and I use it 3 times a week. I've seen improvements in my skin texture, but it had an almost unbearable burn for the first week or so. I'm not sure if my skin was extra dry or what.
This product is amazing!
Glitter Rose' from ALABAMA
The product is a gentle exfoliating cleanser! It leaves your skin soft and glowing! I noticed improvements after the second use!
Not amazing for sensitive skin
Lauren from Missouri
I love that this has a light scent and the scrub isn't harsh at all. But I have sensitive skin and this made me break out & made my skin inflamed :( I kept using it for 1-2 weeks because sometimes it takes a little for products to start working but that wasn't the case with this. My skin just kept getting more inflamed.
Everyone's skin is different & has different reactions to different ingredients. I think this is probably safe for normal skin but if you have sensitive skin I'd definitely see if you can find a travel size or sample somewhere before investing in the full size, just in case this doesn't work for your skin.
Rae from CLE
I bought this for my little sister (almost 13 yo) because she gets dry patches and needed something that would cleanse and exfoliate lightly. We both used it and both of our faces felt clean and smooth without feeling overly dry like most cleansers make our skin feel.
Would Buy again!!
LL from Gonzales, La
Sometimes use twice a day. Very refreshing and clean feeling. Like it better than the oily skin cleanser!!
Blackheads from Texas
Not gonna lie. I have used this line in the past & loved it but this particular product gave me black heads really bad within a week of using it. I know about the purge & all that but this was not that! lol had to stop using
I would definitely buy this product again!
Madeline from Bronx
This is the best daily scrub ever, my face is so soft, I love it.
MADE ME BREAK OUT
!!! from Florida
DONT BUY THIS!!! this is just a no!! it made me break like crazy and the smell(not a fan)
if you have sensitive skin I wouldn't recommend this product.
I finally found a product I stuck to and it ended up working
Chels from Florida
I love this product. I started out using it 3 times a day and ended up drying my face out pretty bad. I invested in the cetaphil face lotion and it helped for a little. Had to go down to washing my face at night with it and than applying my retina. If my face is dry I use lotion instead of the retina. Now I have my face pretty figure out with this face wash and it's amazing the difference.
Ashley from New Orleans, LA
I bought this in-store at Ulta because I've been needing something new to exfoliate my face and figured since this was labeled as gentle and Cetaphil *usually* is good but no not this stuff. This stuff is what the devil is made of. While yes it does exfoliate it BURNS and I have NO open pimples/wounds/sores and my skin is clear aside from some scarring. I've used it twice thinking maybe the first time was just a weird time but no, this stuff hurts and I don't have sensitive skin AT ALL like my skin can take a beating but this stuff? No thaaaaaank you. It's going back to Ulta where it came from.
C from California
I have dry sensitive skin and this doesn't irritate it at all and I notice my skin feels so soft and it's gentle for everyday use. My boyfriend also loves it now. New fav
I love it?!
j. from Pasadena
I have dry acne prone sensitive skin and I've been using this for two months now and I definitely feel like this has been helping treat my acne. My break outs have been contained and are dying down. I'm so happy with the product, but I've been hearing bad things about cetaphil itself so I guess I'll have to keep looking for another holy grail
Renee from North Carolina
As soon as I washed my face with this product it instantly started burning thought maybe it was my skin but I give this to my husband and he had the same reaction instant burning and had to immediately wash his face!
I won't buy again
chey from st. Joseph, MO
Wanting something with a little more course of a scrub to it. I couldnt even tell this had any kind of scrubb to it. And it smelled horrible!
Kind of burns
Dia from New York
It might be that my skin is super sensitive but it left my skin feeling a little tingly.
Fel from California
the product has taken away all of my big pimples
Does not work for my sensitive skin
Des from Puerto Rico
I bought this product thinking it would be perfect for my sensitive skin but it is not. It irritates my skin within seconds of applying, it leaves my cheeks and forehead red once I remove the daily scrub. Even though I've seen that my face feels clean, I would not buy it again. It may work, but it's not worth getting my skin irritated for, I feel like my face is burning.
Elise from Washington
This scrub is too harsh on sensitive skin and it make my face feel like it is burning. Would recommend a chemical exfoliator instead.
