super drying
I wanted to try somehing that was gentle on my skin, (which has eczema) but this was not gentle. It left my face feeling tight and it just didnt feel good at all. It did not break me out or anything. I will continue to use it up until it finishes but sadly this just wasnt for me.

-Doesn't cause acne.
-Doesn't irritate skin.
-Good for sensitive skin.


-Doesn't prevent and clear acne.
-Hasn't done much to my skin.
-Isn't good for oily skin.

My skin is oily, sensitive. I've got a lot of pimples on my forehead, and Cetaphil isn't clearing this off. My skin is still really oily and shiny after I use this bar. The bar lasts long - but I've wanted to try the skin cleanser for a long time. It hasn't added to my pimples, hasn't irritated my skin (like other soap bars do), and is the best bar I've use for sensitive skin (only bar - maybe, that I've used). For people who don't have oily skin and not much pimples, this is recommended.

Cleans face of dirt and makeup.


KIlled my skin!!! DO NOT USE unless you want to end up with dry, peeling, leather-like skin. I used to have pretty normal looking skin ( texture) until I started using this. My skin is horrible now thanks to this. It resembles snake skin.

DO NOT use this for your FACE. It will give you chronic dry, peeling skin. My face looks horrible after using this. I don't think this is meant for your face, mainly for your body. It's just too harsh and drying. Use, the Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser instead. It's very gentle.

Strong fragrance, also leaves an annoying film on my skin.

Not good for oily skin types, if your skin is dry from accutane maybe a good choice but if your dry from benzoyl peroxide or other drying topical products maybe you should think twice about using those harsh topicals.

It cleans really well and moisturizes skin


It made my face feel tight and dehydrated, quite uncomfortable.

I've used it only about half a week and i'm starting to dislike it. I think my skin is not compatitable or the formula or ingredients that are in it made my skin feel tight.
