I have went back and forth on this product in the past and I never understood why. I used to think that the whole reason my face would break out was because I was not using the right cleanser, right toner, moisturizer and acne topical cream but after years of experimenting and puting my face through drying benzoyl peroxide and powerful salicylic acid I found out what everyone should know. All of these prducts where making actually harming my skin and making it worst. Our skin is not meant to be put through all these chemical so I set out on finding the right products to clear my skin and repair it.
After I threw out all my bp products and non oil free lotions and cleansers I went through my drawers and found this again. I wanted to use the gentlest products and I believe this is the best for my oily acne-prone skin type.
The only products I use now are this cetaphil cleanser, an oil-free moisturizer that contains no acne medication and every once and a blue moon tea tree oil for spot treatment (but I think I can easily stop using this, it's unnecessary now).
Other than that the only other thing I do is TRY to drink 8 glasses of water (which I did on the first week of this new cleansing and honestly I believe it one of the most important things). I now know water makes a different on your body so at least drink 6 glasses and you will see skin clearing results in a couple of days. TRUST ME it does make a huge difference.
So now my face is clear 95% i have one small pimple on my face because I stopped drinking water for 2 days and ate some greasy chinese food but it is going away alot quickly than it used to before.
The water makes my face brighter and my skin also less red from post acne marks, amazing right. And whatever scars I did have they are disappearing.
I know this sounds scary to leave all your acne products behind but your skin will thank you for it. The minimal, gentler and more natural you can go the better.
Hope this helps. I am only 21 and I feel like saved myself from alot of acne and spending. My skin has never been this clear and I dont have to walk through the acne aisles in the stores anymore, i found this a little embarrassing. Hope this helps you guys

I'm devoted to Cetaphil GENTLE cleanser, but accidentally got this and you know what? It's amazing!

I've had stubborn acne (whiteheads) on the side of my forehead for about a couple of months now and NO amount of washing, Differin gel, and DuAC was helping, but this did. I washed my face with it at night and applied my usual acne medication over it, and the next day the pimples had drastically diminished in size!!

My face does feel a little tight after I towel off, but I quickly apply a thick layer of lotion (I use Ceravae) to solve the problem. I also use my Cetaphil GENTLE cleanser every few days, so I don't dry out my skin especially since I'm located in the northeast where the winters are absolutely brutal.

The smell is strong and I was a bit taken aback by it. It's a floral, pretty smell--almost like a perfume. It's not bad, but I can see how it may be a turn off to some people especially men.

      This is so highly fragranced it makes my skin itch and my eyes burn - and I didn't get it in my eyes or use it on my actual eye area. I tried to salvage it by using as a body wash and a hand wash, but it still makes my skin itchy.

              I actually bought this by mistake- I meant to purchase the original gentle skin cleanser for sensitive skin,not the one for oily skin.
              I was expecting the milky non-foaming cleanser. This one is different, it is a clear liquid that does foam and of course has different ingredients.
              I prefer the original but I have sensitive skin and this made my face burn a bit, so I gave it away.
              Be aware if you have sensitive skin, you want the other cetaphil cleanser.

              This is a great product. It removes make-up and oil residue from my face. It does not dry it out either BUT I am allergic to some fragrances and I have to say that the fragrance on this produtct is WAY TOO overpowering. Next time I am buying the Gentle Cleanser formula instead since it is fragrance free. Note to the maker of this product: Please make the same formula without any fragrance or with a least overpowering one. Thank you!

                I've used this product morning and night for years to wash my face. It removes makeup & oil really well without stripping your skin. As I've aged and my skin has gotten less oily, I've started using it just in the hot & humid summer, when my face has the most oil. During winter & at night, I use the gentler formula of this product. Alternating these Cetaphil products keeps my skin clean, soft, without oily shine, but not itchy or tight, either. Great value & wouldn't be without it.

                  I received a sample of this from a physician that specializes in facials and cosmetic procedures. Tried it and loved it! Not expensive like many of the facial products that are offered at doctors offices.

                    I have combination skin- oily T zone and subject to the monthly breakout. My skin has been remarkably improved since using Cetaphil. I love it so much that I think I am in about my fifth year! I have tried most every drugstore and department store brand, but I am never leaving Cetaphil again. Please note that if you have oily skin and accidentally purchase the dry skin version you will not like it! This clear gel cleanser for normal/oily is vastly different. It's inexpensive, it's gentle, it works great for combination skin. Try it!

                        I am a 40 year old woman who has had acne all my life...and not just pimples...more like the large cystic type nodules every month. I've tried EVERY product out there from Proactive to Clear Skin to herbal pills and nothing has worked. However, I started using this cleanser twice a day and at night I apply Neutrogena Rapid Clear with salicylic acid. My skin, knock on wood, has been clear for several months now. It seems to be preventing new acne from forming, no more huge nodules, and my skin seems smoother as well. I thank my lucky stars every day that this has worked so well for me. It has a slightly weird smell, but you rinse it off anyway, so no big deal. It is a miracle in a bottle...you get a lot of product for a fraction of what others cost. If I could give this 10 stars, I would. I hope it works as well for you.
