Is Dan's cleanser SLIGHTLY drying for anyone else?

14 posts in this topic

When I used to use the Regimen a year ago I ended up using Aveeno Ultra Calming foam cleanser. Not recommended, but I felt it left my skin a little softer and calmer than Dan's cleanser, which might actually be a little drying for me. this time around though I only want to use recommended products to be safe.

Has anyone else experienced this slight drying feeling from DKR cleanser, and found a good alternative? I'm thinking if giving store-brand generic Cetaphil Gentle a shot since it's super cheap.


"Regimen" As of June 2011:

1. CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser

2 .Dan's BP

3. Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion

4. (Day only) Olay Complete Sensitive Skin

5. Spot treat with BP and AHA+ from time to time.

Repeat twice daily, depending on how irritated my skin gets. If too irritated to use BP, do not cleanse, just give skin a break, and moisturize until irritation is relieved, then begin treating again. It's all up to balancing.

Status: Satisfactory. 1-3 Active pimples at once if I do break out, and they heal fast. Otherwise just tiny clogged pores that you can't see unless you're making out with me maybe.

The dryness is most likely not the cleanser but because you are treating your skin with benzoyl peroxide. Dan's cleanser is pH balanced to the skin and as gentle as baby bath.

However, if you still wish to try another one, you can certainly try Cetaphil Gentle cleanser. I didn't really care for it though because it feels like you are just rubbing lotion on the skin. Some people like it though so it may be worth a try for you. Be aware though that it does not lather. You just rub it on and wipe it off with a tissue or rinse it off. It didn't feel like it got my skin clean at all (but I have very oily skin). If yours tends to be on the dry side, you may really love Cetaphil.

I agree. It doesn't lather, which is fine because things don't really need to I guess, but still...it feels weird! I didn't feel like my skin was clean when I finished using it.

^ I agree. My skin didn't feel clean either and it certainly did not get my makeup off, however some people really love it. Especially those with dry sensitive skin.

Yeah, the only time I used it was on Accutane. I had really dry skin then, but even then...didn't like it. I can't imagine using it now that my skin is oily again.

I also notice that the cleanser seems to really be drying to my skin. I don't know if it would improve if I lathered it on for less than the ten seconds, but I am afraid if I did less than ten seconds that my skin wouldn't be adequately cleaned.

I haven't tried that. I'll give it a shot.

whats the best way to use cetaphil gentle cleanser without irritating the face? I find it hard to rub it on your face since it doesnt lather without irritating the face..

I try to vigorously rub my hands together with any cleanser first, and just spread it on my face and move it around gently for 10 seconds.

I find Dan's cleanser slightly drying too, so I use it only at night, and Cetaphil in the morning.

Well the way i see it girls that have taken accutane are basically ruined for life

hollowed-out shells with only a small semblance of still being human walking around blindly

with their clear skin but soulless faces. zombies.

Accutane basically destroys the DNA, the woman's eggs are forever spoiled and the womb becomes

nothing more than a vessel for deformed stillborn babies.

I would never put my seed into these ruined vessels, i would rather fuk an alien. Not that they even

have any lubrication left on their vaginas to even facilitate such an act.
