Switch? Basic Neutrogena wash to Cetaphil??

Recommended Posts

I am currently using Neutrogena "Liquid Neutrogena" You know, its orange and its in a pump bottle...basic noncomedogenic wash. By the way, i am on tazorac cream for the past 3 weeks now... I find that after i wash my face in the morning and night, my face is very stiff and kind of dry. Also, as im massaging the neutrogena, my face starts to burn and tingle a little bit. Do you think i should switch to Cetaphil Gentle bar cleanser (which is very mild i've read) and get rid of the Neutrogena stuff? Or , do you think the Cetaphil wont make a difference in my dryness and/or make me break out?

Also, could i shave with the cetaphil bar cleanser? So it would be like a 2 for 1 thing...washing and shaving at the same time?

Check the ingredients of that cleanser, i thought it had Salicylic Acid in it, which aint good if ur on a BP regimen.

Gaz, Neutrogena® Liquid Neutrogena is similar to it's Neutrogena® beauty bar that you used daily. However, I have come over many opinions claiming that the bar version is far more gentler compared to the liquid version. I don't know why because I'm not a chemist~

Well, maybe you should try the bar version.Gaz would higly recommended it to you. If it doesn't work, then it's time for you to substitute to Cetaphil®. Cetaphil® cleanser is similar to thick and plain water. You can shave with it but make sure your razor's blade is sharp enough to cut the hairs.

hopefully can help,
