I was skeptical since I've tried many products that got great reviews and didn't get great results. However, this one is different. I've been using this for a few days now and it's great. First, it really does get the skin clean and I know this because I always test a facial cleanser by using rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball after using a cleanser. If the cotton ball is clean, then the cleanser has worked. This passed the test. Second, not only has it cleared up the acne I did have, I have not gotten any new acne since I started using it (I have oily, acne prone skin). Not only that, it has helped get rid of the redness that sticks around after a pimple is gone. Now, for the negatives. It does dry my skin a little, so if you have normal skin, it might be pretty drying (I have oily skin). Also, the smell is pretty bad. I don't tend to complain about the scent of a product like this, but this is really, really strong and I even have diminished smell due to severe allergies. It smells like cheap cologne that has sat for a really long time. Blech. If there's an unscented version, I will try that instead. As for the dryness, I use moisturizer anyway, so it's not a problem. It's less drying than any of the acne cleanser/creams that I use.

I really loved this face wash at first. My face felt so soft and clean after I used it. I even liked the scent!
After using it for about 3 days, I got a HUGE, very painful boil on my cheek. I never get zits unless I'm super stressed out (and even those are tiny), and I have never had a boil in my life until after using this product!
I've decided to stick with what works for me: washing my face with unscented Dove or Kiss My Face soap and using pure T.N. Dickinson's witch hazel afterwards.

      Comments about Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser, Normal to Oily Skin, 8 fl oz:

      I bought it because of recommendations. However it is such a disappointment. I can't stand its smell. I never use it on my face. I thought I can just use it to wash my hand. It worked well at first. But it burnt my hands after using it four times. Now I just feel lucky that I haven't use it on my face.

      Its a nice cleanser, overall, for normal to combination skin. It feels moisture after using it, the only con would be the strong smell it has, like quimical.

      Just bought the wrong product.. simply thought it would be fragrance free, but it turns out to be strongly fragrant... just the opposite to what I wanted...

      I have tried a lot cleansers, from high end to drugstore brand. This turns out to be the best.It's gentle and effective. It even helps me clear out my acne. I use this cleanser twice a day. The only thing I don't like is the fragrance. I'm not a big fan a the musk smell. But I get used to it after a while. Hope the company could change the smell one day.

          This cleanser works well, but it needs a little help removing make-up. The main reason I use it is because I have rosacea. It's one of the few cleansers I can use.

            Comments about Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser, Normal to Oily Skin, 8 fl oz:

            So I decided to buy this after reading all the good reviews about it on here and I usually have good skin & I don't break out too much but ever since I've been pregnant, it's just the opposite, I guess because of hormones or some jazz, and I have to say that so far, it has worked pretty well. It hasn't dried my skin out right after using it, which is what I was afraid it might do, and I'm not sure if it removes makeup or not because I always just use toner after washing my face anyway, but I usually use Mario Badescu products & I really couldn't afford to wait for the cleanser I usually use from them (which is amazing), so I up & bought this, plus it's a lot cheaper [...]but if you get it at [...], it's sooo much cheaper there than the price it shows on here. It does have an odd smell to it, though.. kinda like the handsoap they use at my hospital but it's nothing unbearable, although I have to say that I hate the pump so very much because I can't seem to get it to stay in the middle of the bottle and still pump, so it's always going to one side or the other. Those are my only 2 complaints.. but if something goes awry with it, I will be back on here saying so.
