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 started using this product on the recommendation of my dermatologist; I have been using for 7 years.
    

It is gentle on your eyes when removing eye makeup. There are no tears or irritation.
    I use at least twice a day.


    It is great for showers.

        I have extremely sensitive skin and this leaves my face soft and clean without any irritation at all. I will definitely be purchasing this again. I do wish it "foamed" more, but that's a small complaint for such a wonderful product. Unless they change the formula, I can't see switching to anything else.

            I wanted to find a safe, gentle cleaner since I"m pregnant and this one seemed to be the best. It's not harsh and I can use it either AM or PM. I use it with my Clarisonic too.

              Use it in mornings and nights. It actually cures my long-lasting acne problem. I tried many other acne products before. But only this one relates to the improvement that I can see recently.

                Comments about Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, 8 fl oz:

                I bought this by mistake. I usually use the Cetaphil Normal-to-Oily version. My face is definitely oily, and this Gentle version just doesn't cut through the oil. it just sort of floats on top of it, and makes my skin feel gunky and gritty - definitely worse after I use it than before! The Normal-to-Oily version cleans the way I expect, yet I don't feel that it's too harsh, either. Obviously, I'm not in a position to judge how well it works for those with sensitive skin.

                  My skin is so sensitive I have to limit my contact with water. This product was reccommended by my rheumatologist and can be used directly on the skin and provides an awesome clean protective barrier. I see results immediately, calms skin down!

                  Comments about Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, 8 fl oz:

                  I love Cetaphil moisturizing cream and lotion, so I thought this cleanser might be good during the dry season. I usually only wear light makeup, those powdered foundations, so thought this gentle cleanser would suffice. I can see that it does not remove even the light makeup - always residue on cotton balls with toner. I used it for a week or so, then had a few breakouts, which is very rare for me. I think this product is supposed to be non-comedogenic, but it did clog my pores... maybe it needs a separate wash with something that foams, then what's the point of having mild cleanser? I wish it worked.

                    I have oily skin and a history of breaking out, despite using face wash. This stuff works really well - since I've been using it my skin has been looking really good. I love the no odor formula. Only con is that it tends to empty quickly - but can't complain with something that works.
