Most Helpful Positive Review Love this new cleanser!
I recently switched over to Cetaphil moisturizers (moisturizing cream at night and daily spf 15 in the day) and love them so I decided to try this cleanser and it is perfect for me. It gently removes makeup (I put some on a wet cleansing cloth) and leaves my face so smooth, perfectly balanced and ready for serums and moisturizer at night. I use the Cetaphil gentle cleanser on my face in shower (morning) and my skin looks so much better. I will be 62 soon and was told by a much younger employee at another high end skin care store that my skin was beautiful and radiant. That is nice to hear at my age. Love Cetaphil!
Most Helpful Critical Review Would not recommend!!
Tried this product for about 2 months now, and I would not recommend it for anyone with harsh acne. I suffer from cystic acne and have since I was in middle school, I was using the cerave face wash for a few months and it cured up a lot of previous breakouts but I still had of pimples that would pop up. Decided to try this product and I've never broken out as bad as I have since trying it. I keep getting really painful cystic acne and tiny little bumps around my cheeks that I've never had before trying this product. Do not use if you suffer from more than the occasional breakout.

I love how light and airy it is, and how clean it makes my face feel. One bottle can last me 4-6 months and I use it at least twice a day. I've been using this product since around April 2020.
Jenn from FL
This lasted me for quite a while, many months. It didn't really do much for my acne, but it didn't dry out my skin or cause more acne problems and I felt like my skin was clean afterwards.
I wanted to like it but I prefer the daily facial cleanser
Luz from SoCAL
It's lasted me about 6 months, has a weird smell now, leaves skin feeling dry and not super clean, the pro is that it is super gentle. I still have some product left but I prefer the cetaphil daily facial cleanser wayyyy better (the daily cleanser has a better smell, it stays fragrance free as the months pass, it leaves my face clean, I've been using the daily cleanser for years.
Meh...nothing really good or bad about this product
CDS from Vancouver, Wa
This product is just OK. Nothing special about it. It lathers well, but it doesn't really feel like your face is clean after using it. It doesn't dry your skin out which is good.
Holly from Cleveland
Love this! Doesn't dry my skin out at all!
Happy customer! from Usa
I loveeeee this cleanser!!!! It works really well but I always have to use moisturizer after using it because it can make your face kind of dry sometimes... great product!

I would not recommend to anyone with acne pronesensitve skin
kam from Washington
Have only been using this product the last 3 weeks after wanting to try a new face wash and have heard many good things about this one, let me just say I haven't had acne this bad before in my life. I've also never experienced having bad texture on my skin and this face wash really does it for you. Overall a terrible wash if your skin is acne prone
I would definitely buy again

I love that this product made my face feel clean and fresh without making my sensitive skin irritated or dry.
Perfect Timing Cetaphil
MissMV from Orange
This product is working for me and will be beneficial in the coming months when skin tends to feel dry. I was using the SA cleanser from CeraVe, which is great for summer, but I needed something more hydrating for the change of season. Leaves a clean feeling without causing redness or tightness.
Only face wash I can use
KrysCat from Tennessee
I have tried SO MANY face washes. I have very sensitive skin and pretty bad allergies. I have tried lots of products that are hypoallergenic, and I still react to many of them. This is the only face wash that doesn't irritate my skin. I use clinique ttdo balm to remove makeup, then wash my face with this, and tone with plain witch hazel on a cotton pad. I do wish they would redesign the pump though. If I run a bunch of hot water through it every so often it goes back to normal, but it's still kind of annoying to have to do this. It's not a deal breaker for me though to have a product that works so well.

Washing my sensitive, rosacea face with this feels wonderful. Does not leave it tight or feeling weird. Hopefully in the winter will still feel this way.
I like it
Sarahj from Indiana
This facewash actually softens my skin! It does a pretty good job of cleansing. I use a thick foundation and this gets most of the makeup off. I use a norwex makeup removing cloth while my face is still wet to get the excess makeup around my nose and hairline. But overall I love the consistency of this face wash and will probably buy it again!

It's helping my acne!
j.. from Pasadena
I really enjoy foaming cleansers, and I feel like this has really been doing good for my skin. 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. It makes my skin feel soft and smooth with a cooling refreshed feeling. My break outs have been contained and are dying down since I've used this. 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
Not the best but not the worst.
Alani from US
I really like this product, it's very gentle,
leaves my skin soft and radiant! But it
does have a slight chemical smell. Removes my makeup as well. Gets the job done at such an affordable price! I recommend you try it.
Works okay, smells bad.
Maggie from New Jersey
I used this once and it worked fine but it had a weird smell to it. It kind of dried my skin out as well, more than it already is.
Perfect foaming cleanser
Susanna from Chicago
I love this cleanser! It leaves your skin feeling clean but not over stripped. I've tried many foaming cleansers since they are so fun to use. My old favorite was the I dew care facial cleanser but it started to add up with every re purchase so I wanted to look for a cheaper alternative. Will buy again and again.
Leaves my face super soft and clean without stripping!
dianm100 from Kissimmee, Fl
I use this in the shower as a regular face cleanser and as a makeup remover and so far its done wonderful at actually removing my makeup without being harch on my skin, i am very prone to acne and dryness, but this product helps towards that. Its defininetly one of my favorite cleansers.

I like to use this for hand washing since soap can be too harsh. Foam seems to go farther.
Faranah from Pennsylvania
This dried out my face completely I immediately saw how dry my skin was after 5 minutes of me using it around my lips, and it cause my skin to burn and itch, I'll be definitely returning this tomorrow morning 👋🏽
Definitely gonna buy again!!!
Keira from ithaca ny
I started using this a week ago about. I went from using Clear and Clear (which i learned isn't good for the skin cause of the fragrance) and it stripped my skin and ALWAYS dried it out and i have sensitive skin. I get mainly ance on my T zone and it's clearing up and I have really oily skin. I was really skeptical that this wasn't gonna work and it's a waste of money.
Great for sensitive skin
shalia1357 from Anchorage
A face wash that's not irritating to the skin. Does a good job cleaning the face to. Seems to last a long time. 4 stars because the pumps starts to get wonky after many uses
Tanya from Canada
I was afraid this product would irritate my skin after reading some negative reviews but I decided to give it a go since a lot more people werte happy with it and I am so glad I did. My complexion is brighter my skin is softer and appears younger I'm overall very satisfied w this product ...this is better than the higher end products I usually reach for
Cleared my skin!
Amazing!!! from PA
This product saved my skin. Literally. I used to use an expensive face wash, but this is safe for sensitive skin and didn't break me out. It does take time for your skin to adjust. My skin felt very very dry for the first two weeks, but once it adjusted, my skin has never looked better!
