I've been using Spectrojel for several years now.
It has been quite gentle on my skin - I love it.
I've tried other cleansers and I find it is one of the few that does not irritate my skin.
I don't think its medicated however.
I wouldn't say it helps treat acne, but is safe for acne users.

God, I hated this stuff. It didn't feel like it was doing anything at all on my skin. Plus, whenever I used it, it made me break out. I threw mine out.

i should have explained better, cetaphil is the brand and i have seen 2 types (maybe more)
There is one that says for acne prone skin and is a bit stronger than spectro gel and the othes cetaphils.

I mean the use of spectrojel IN THE REGIMEN as the cleanser. I know what cetaphil is and I was asking if spectrojel is the same type of cleanser...which I am pretty sure it is.
Of course spectrojel alone is not going to control acne, I never implied that and you shouldn't believe that it would...it is completely unmedicated.
So anyway, I've been on the regimen for a few weeks now using spectojel as a cleanser and I like it. It feels much better on my skin than traditional soap cleansers. I haven't had any bad experiences with it breaking me out more like some people have so I must be lucky. There is also something they make called 'spectroderm' especially for dry skin which I think I will try the next time.

It is only a gentle wash.
It doesn't irritate the skin.
But using it alone won't help acne - that's probably why appearance of acne seems to be worse.
agree with you. also spectrojel is good for oily skin types but again it is a very mild cleanser which is not going to irritate the skin for those sensitive skin types.
