    I use day and night. I have Rosacea and adult acne. THis product cleared that up almost immediately. Calmed down my skin after using irritating products made for acne and rosacea. I will never run out!

      Comments about Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser:

      After trying so many cleansers high end and low, I've found my holy grail. This product does exactly what it's intended to which is cleanse & remove dirt - and leave your skin feeling as smooth as a baby's butt. This product is so gentle, non-irritating, so of course it's not possible to remove heavy makeup. I always use micellar water before to remove makeup. then apply cetaphil after and my skin has never been better! Smooth, even and balanced and my foundation never looks cakey or patchy, since I do have dry skin. It also almost diminished all my acne scars I had many on my cheek area and chin.. definitely worth adding to your routine! Plus it's so gentle I use it mornings and nights. I KNOW AMAZING RIGHT.

            Comments about Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser:

            I started using this cleanser a few months ago and my face has never felt better. If my face is feeling particularly dry, I use this without water. I use both in the AM and PM, and unless I have on more makeup than usual, it will also remove my eye makeup. I am nothing but pleased, and will continue to do so.

                I use this a few times a week on bare skin as a morning cleanser at the sink. I love to apply it onto dry skin , add water , cleanse and rinse. I can't stop repurchasing after almost 20 years!! Does not remove makeup , just perfect for cleaning in the morning or after the gym.

                  I am horrible when it comes to having a skin care routine with loads of steps-this helps cut down. I only have to use this and then throw on a moisturizer and i am good to go.

                  Really like this cleanser

                  By Joanna

                  from Potomac md

                  Comments about Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser:

                  I recently started using this cleanser and I really like it. I'm 37 and I have oily skin. Up until now I've always used foaming cleansers. I decided to switch to this cleanser because I was finding the foaming cleansers stripper my skin so much and my skin seemed to overcompensate by producing more oil during the day. With this cleanser my skin seems much less oily and my makeup stays intact throughout the day.The first few days I used this, my skin didn't feel clean afterwards, but after several days it felt a little stripped but nothing like when I used foaming cleansers. We will see how I like it in the long term. I did use this when I was in my early 20s and I found that it really clogged my skin, but now my middle aged skin seems to really like it.
