I began using this product at the suggestion of my dermatologist as the expensive brand name product I'd been using began irritating my skin. When used as directed, this product gently and thorough cleans my skin, leaving it soft and smooth with no drying or redness whatsoever! I use it morning and evening and can't imagine being without it!

I really wanted to like this considering all the good reviews but sadly it did quite a number on my forehead and made it even drier. I guess my skin doesn't agree with it. At first I thought it was working cause my skin felt soft and then a couple hours later my forehead was irritated. And now my skin is a total mess! When I put the cleanser on my face, what I thought was soothing it was actually irritating it. I think I'll try Cerave now. I've heard it's better than Cetaphil.

Comments about Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, 8 fl oz:

I have very sensitive combination skin and break out occasionally, so finding a cleanser that works and doesn't overwork is challenging. I like that this doesn't irritate my skin, but I don't feel like I get the deep down clean I want. I use it in the morning because it does work as a light moisturizer. I don't recommend it to use at night because I didn't think it really took my makeup off.

This is honestly the WORST cleanser I have ever tried. It smells gross and I used it for a month thinking it would do something for my skin but I saw NO DIFFERENCE!! Worst product ever

Comments about Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, 8 fl oz:

My pediatrician recommended this for my newborn. She had very dry skin. One use of this in her bath, combined with Mustela bath oil and Theraplex emollient afterwards, worked like a magic wand. Now she has the softest skin ever!

Comments about Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, 8 fl oz:

Good for mixing with other things, BUT NOT NON-IRRITATING... sodium lauryl sulfate is a widely known skin irritant, why they put it in this is a mystery to me, I always get a red face a few minutes after using

I love this product. It's smooth and doesn't irritate my skin. Since I started using it 5 years ago, I have reduced my breakouts significantly. Perfect for dry/sensitive skin.

Comments about Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, 8 fl oz:

I've read the reviews about the scent, but I honestly love it. I am usually sensitive to scents, but this is so yummy smelling. It's very fresh, almost like a very, very light detergent... but I like it. It leaves my skin feeling so soft and clean. I had heard of Cetaphil, but this is my first time trying it. Will buy again. I follow with a UVA/UVB lotion by Neutrogena (Sunblock Lotion, SPF 45).

Comments about Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, 8 fl oz:

My dermatologist recommended this cleanser. I have hand dermatitis, and washing my hands causes blisters and dry-cracked skin. This cleanser leaves my hands feeling soft with no irritation. I put it in a smaller bottle for my purse, so that I can use it at any time.

Comments about Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, 8 fl oz:

Cetaphil is the best. I'm 26 years old, and have had severe acne since I was about 12. Other "gentle" cleansers either didn't cleanse my skin well enough or moisturized too much, leading to more breakouts. I'd all but given up hope until I gave this a shot when a dermatologist recommended I try it a few years ago. Cetaphil isn't a quick fix, and you probably won't see changes overnight if your skin is anything like mine, but stick with it for a few weeks, and you will definitely see lasting results.

Comments about Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, 8 fl oz:

I am giving this product 5 stars because it is the only product I've used that doesnt dry my skin or make it break out. I have oily and acne-prone skin, and this product cleanses very well and does not exacerbate the problem. I've used everything (Lancome, Proactiv, Borba, and Origins to name a few) - this has worked the best for me. At first it seemed a little watery, but I got used to the consistency, and if you shake it well and often when you use it, it's fine. I will never use anything else - it has improved my skin remarkably.

Comments about Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, 8 fl oz:

I purchased this because of the great reviews on here. I have extremely sensitive acne-prone skin, and I thought this would be perfect for me. I liked that it was simple and fragrance-free, however I felt like it burned my face and made it even drier than before. But after awhile when I started using this, my face calmed down and it stopped being so dry. I think it is a good cleanser for people with dry and sensitive skin. I'm not sure if I would buy it again though, because of some of its affects.
Cetaphil lotion is excellent, though.
