Most Helpful Positive Review New staple of my skincare routine
I'm an 18 year old girl that has dealt with average acne (stress and hormone related) for several years. I've been using high-end products for about three years that have somewhat helped with breakouts but had dried out my skin very badly. My breakouts became more frequent and more harsh so I decided to research other brands to try and find a solution. This product has been amazing! Within two weeks I saw a significant difference in my skin. I still have dry skin that requires moisturizing, but I feel so much better without the constant breakouts. I have been using this product for about two months now, but the pictures I am attaching were a two week difference (in the same lighting).
Most Helpful Critical Review Making My Face Breakout
I usually buy higher-end facial cleansers because I have very sensitive skin. After reading all the wonderful reviews about this product, I figured I could save some money and give it a try. Almost one week later, my cheeks are breaking out horribly and face is currently itchy after using the product. I really want to love this cleanser because of the price, but it might not be for me. I'm going to try to use it for a couple more days to see if my skin just needs to get used to it. But, if you have EXTREMELY sensitive skin beware that it might not work for you.

I always go back to Cetaphil whenever I use other product's. It just works well for me
Face not cleaned
Miis from 94954
After removing makeup and then washing with this product my fave was still dirty I was still wiping off dirt when I went in for a toner. I started washing rinsing and washing again. This is rediculous and I dread having to use it.

Tried this for the first time and will buy again. Great product for a great price.
I would totally buy this again.

I love how much it helps my skins and makes it super soft!

haven't noticed a difference other than my face is clean..
Feels like moisturizer for my sensitive skin
Diorlover224 from MD
This is my twice daily, holy grail cleanser. It doesn't get super sudsy or foamy, but I enjoy that because it keeps my face feeling soft, hydrated, and very fresh.
Doesn't feel greasy
Jackie is tacky from Miami Florida
It's actually not so bad , I love that it doesn't feel to heavy on my skin like other brands which I can only apply at night because of their heavy ness. This brand is pretty safe for those starting to branch into skin care especially teens/preteens. It doesn't have fragrance to not upset your skin after a few hours of use. 🙂
Been buying since mid 20's (I am now 40) with no breakouts!
Sandy from Chicago, IL
I broke out in my mid 20's, saw a dermatologist who recommended cetaphil and I've been using it since (I am now 40). I drink a lot of water, daily, and alternate between a charcoal and clay mask 1-2 times a week. I don't plan on changing anytime soon.
In place of benzoyl peroxide
KrysC from Stockton
Ive has a Rx for benzoyl peroxide for years due to hormonal acne. It's causing a reaction now, because my acne subsided after childbirth. Now this is a great replacement! This is what the Derm had me use during pregnancy in place of the Rx

I found cetaphil by reading and viewing many articles and videos on skincare. When i first started using this it did break me out at first but thats because my skin was purging and getting used to a new product and getting rid of any bacteria. After that my skin has been clear ever since and I always double cleanse whenever I wash my face and it works really well!
Dan from Ohio
I used to use neutrogena oil free acne wash and simple brand clear skin wash which both dried my face out horribly and made my breakouts way worse. Cetaphil doesn't over dry it all. It also doesn't make it greasy. Honestly it's the perfect balance for me. I've been using it for month and my skin has been 97% clear the whole time. I just wish I would have found it sooner!
A cleanser that works
Tracey from Michigan
I've tried several products to keep my skin clean and control oil. This one has been the best so far, cleaning my skin without being drying, harsh, or leading to more breakouts. Very happy with this.
I love buying this

I was not happy with the amount it took to cleanse my face. Nothing outstanding about the product.
GREAT job maintaining clear skin
Liyah from North Carolina
Skin Type: Dry to very dry sensitive skin
I was recommended this cleanser by my derm. At first I was a little off put by the fact that it doesn't sud up at all, and keeps its gel like consistency through the whole cleansing process. But with consistent use I notice I wouldn't have anymore active breakouts and my skin felt hydrated after. I recommend for all, helps fight acne while the wash is VERY gentle
My fave cleanser!
Kayla from Pennsylvania
I have spent a lot of money on different cleansers trying to find something that makes my acne prone skin feel refreshed and actually cleansed, and this is the winner! It is gentle, yet makes my skin feel amazing

Stripped my skin over one month of use
Marissa C from WV
I brought my skincare routine back to the basics a month and a half ago. Within the first two weeks of using this as my only cleanser (other than an oil cleanser to remove makeup) my skin became incredibly dry, red, and irritated. My skin had gone from looking incredibly clear and glowy aside from some texture issues to very damaged in such little time. What I thought would help give my skin a break is now what I have spent the past month trying to recover from. Do not recommend. Use a CeraVe cleanser instead.
Jess from Louisiana
This is a great basic cleanser. I don't like that it has SLS in it but it does it's job well. I prefer La Roch Posay Tolerian Purifying flaming cleanser. It's great for oily skin and has probiotics and niamicides to help. No SLS either!
Emma from Raleigh
I used to have really bad forehead acne and I tried multiple cleansers. When I tried this after about a week I cleared up almost completely. 10/10 recommend.
The best for head to toe
Delores from Shreveport Louisiana
Everyday use. Not to heavy.
Definitely does it's job
Jelena from Chicago IL
Noticed my skin feels cleaner and is clearing up a bit but it doesn't promise drastic results so that's important to remember.
nice and gentle
Jamie from wi
BE AWARE the reviews for the GENTLE and DAILY clensers are the same/being put together. For me the GENTLE clenser is nice and doesn't dry out my skin and i recommend it. The DAILY clenser smells so strong and smells bad for your skin and dried out my face so bad my nose was peeling and i only used it a couple days. SO my opinion gentle clenser yes. Daily clenser no.
