I've been using it for just under 4 weeks and my skin is so dry and flaky around the mouth, eyes and nose and my skin feels tight and goes red.

It's drained my skin of all natural oils and the Cetaphil moisturiser hasn't been replacing them for some reason.

Plus it smells like medicine which weirded me out a little?

Will never be using this again, I'm trying to find something a little more gentle and hydrating, even if my skin is naturally oily.

Made my skin at least 5X more oily. As soon as I stopped using it, I was back to my moderately greasy face.

My worse nightmare

My skine was OK until I picked this from rite aid.

I regret the day I picked this up.

After a week of using it twice a day I noticed new pimples that hurt.

I wish I never bought this product

Not too bad

As I said in my other review, I was never good with Cetaphil products. This cleanser is "okay", but doesn't prove better than the standard Gentle alternative.

Contains fair bit of fragrance like the others, if you're sensitive to smell like me, then think twice.

Big Mistake!

Before I started using this my face was ok I got one or two mini pimples, then after a few days of using this daily twice a day, my skin became worst than Ever. I got mini bumps and some cystic acne. It was horrible. It took me a month to figure out this is the culprit. After few days when I stop using this my skin calmed down. This might work for some but not for me unfortunately...

Best cleanser for oily skin

I'm in love with this cleanser. I've been using it for years and so far I've had no problems with it. I tried the Gentle Skin Cleanser before this but it left my skin feeling a bit greasy and even oilier than usual.

This cleanser is definitely the best I've tried for my skin. I wouldn't recommend it for those with normal to dry skin as it can really dry out your face. The thing I love most about this cleanser is that it really removes dirt and makeup from my face that there is hardly any need for toner afterwards.

Highly, highly recommended for those with oily skin. Just be sure to use an oil-free moisturizer afterwards.

Best Skin Cleanser

This is one of the BEST skin cleaner ever. For the past few years, I've been getting large whiteheads and blackheads, but after using this product for the past week and a half, my whole face cleared up. It leaves you with a clean feeling and it doesn't make your skin very dry like some products. I use it twice a day and as for my moisturizer, I use this Asian brand called Aquemoist 2 in 1 moisture lotion. It has a water like consistency and it's not greasy at all and definitely makes my skins plump and smooth. I also have some acne scars from the past and so I use clindoxyl gel 5% at night after applying the moisture lotion. Combined, these two products has made my face squeaky clean and refreshed

This product made me breakout in HUGE, PAINFUL clusters of cysts and nodules all over my chin, temples and cheekbones. I thought that it was just my hormones being out of whack. I should have known it was this cleanser. My skin would burn terribly and be bright red after I used it, yet i persisted for about 2 months. When I finally discontinued it, my skin calmed down immediately… and took weeks for my breakouts to heal, leaving my skin scarred horribly due to how large the spots were.

I started using this cleanser, as well as Spectro 5% benzoyl peroxide cream (might be better to go with 2.5%, but the 5% worked for me), followed by the Cetaphil moisturizer for normal skin while following The Regimen. WOW, I saw fantastic results in about 3 days. One week in, and my moderate acne is all cleared up! I also change my pillowcases every night. As for the moisturizer, be sure not to use in excess or you'll wake up with a greasy face. Rub it in as softly as you can and it works great

I love Cetaphil! I was not left disappointed. This product works for me and I use it as my cleanser in my regimen routine.
