I have very dry, itchy skin. Fragrances cause me to have bad allergy problems. I've tried many soaps and Cetaphil is the best! I've been using it ever since I received a recommendation from my dermatologist.

I have atopic dermatitis over my entire body. I can only use cetaphil products (just wish they made shampoo as well!), and I like this one for ease of use. Plus, it doesn't seem to irritate my skin much. However, the liquid cleanser is more mild. Unfortunately, my bar of this was quite strongly scented. And, unfortunately, the scent, to me, is almost exactly like the distinct smell of deodorant tampons (sorry to be gross.) This prevents me from using it very often.

    Comments about Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar, 4.5 oz:

    At 46, my skin has become drier so I need a gentle, non-drying cleanser. I had been using the normal/oily Cetaphil cleanser but it no longer suited my changing skin so I tried this bar based on all the positive reviews. It really is fabulous! It has a fresh, clean scent, soft lather and doesn't strip away moisture. Great product; don't hesitate to try it.

    AVOID if allergic to coconut

    By H

    from CA

    Pros

    • Gentle
    • Moisturizing
    • Not Greasy

    Cons

    • Irritates Skin

    Best Uses

    • Dry Skin

    Comments about Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar, 4.5 oz:

    The good: doesn't dry out skin, can last a long time (a little goes a long way compared to most bar soaps).

    The bad: if you're allergic to coconut, DO NOT USE this bar. I am allergic to Cetaphil and Dove bar soaps because some of the main ingredients are derived from coconut, especially sodium cocoyl isethionate. I broke out in itchy rashes after 1-2 uses. Galderma should clearly note on the packaging that the soap contains coconut-derived ingredients.

    Good cleanser for itchy dry winter skin

    By Tiari

    from Connecticut

    describe yourself Budget Buyer

    Pros

    • Balances Skin
    • Gentle
    • Improves Skin Texture
    • Not Greasy
    • Smooth Lather

    Cons

    • Bad Smell

    Best Uses

    • Winter dry skin

    Comments about Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar, 4.5 oz:

    Smooth creamy light lather, that rinses off well leaving skin feeling slick and not sticky tacky like soap. I would have given this five stars, however the scent is very off putting. For a sensitive skin cleanser, I was shocked to find it heavily scented. The aroma made me think someone broke an entire bottle of liquid hairspray in the bathroom. It really is that strong and can smell it several rooms away. I wish they would make an unscented version, as I am fighting to use it as my skin loves it, but my nose, not so much

    This soap was recommended by my dermatologist to treat a case of eczema that I developed. It works. It's the cleanest soap I've ever used. No residue after rinsing. It's a little pricey, but it's worth it.

      Love Cetaphil for my unbalanced, picky skin! Using this each day with a simple moisturizer after (Purpose SPF 15) has cleared up my acne and dry skin better than any expensive prescription ever has! Simple is better.

            Dried my skin out terribly and did not do a good job of cleaning. The odor is so overwhelming that we threw it away--it was making the whole bathroom smell.

              all Cetaphil products are high quality, but this is also a great value. It lasts a long time, and you get the clean feeling you only really get from lathering up a bar of soap -- though this is better for you than soap. I prefer it to the pump version.
