I read a lot of reviews before buying this and was not impressed once I got it. my skin felt hydrated but after about a week of use, i noticed that my blackheads in my chin and around my nose were worse than ever and also started getting white hard bumps in my cheeks that I had to extract using a needle. I didn't use it much after that and didn't look back. Blackheads stopped getting so bad and the white things eventually stopped too.

Moisturises well

I use this alongside the Cetaphil cleanser and I have combination skin. I have found, using it AM and PM, that it complements the cleanser well and is absorbed into my skin without feeling greasy. [redacted]

Just bad
I used this for months thinking the acne I was getting was normal... I have moderate acne anyway but I don't get it on the cheek area on either side of the nose/under the eyes - this lotion gave me acne there! This was probably because it gave me blackheads (all over my face, but particularly on the aforementioned area) - since I've stopped using it I don't get any blackheads. By extension it also made my pores bigger. While it probably did prevent moisture loss, it doesn't add much moisture to your skin and is very greasy - it doesn't sink in and leaves a sheen on your face. I wouldn't recommend

Works great
I use this at night to moisturize my face, and it works really good. I have acne-prone and oily skin, and this product hasn't made me break out. I would definitely recommend this.

makes you acne prone
I developed moderate acne which got well controlled on 5 months of oral antibiotics and topical cream. I just had scar left but my skin was too dry and I started using this moisturizer, dont know from where i got this severe acne. Its a complete waste of money and also harms you a lot.

Very effective moisturiser
I really enjoy any Cetaphil™ product as they are very gentle on the skin, fragrance-free and are really worth their price. This is my favourite moisturiser and I would use it again and again. My skin feels soft and healthy after applying and I use this constantly. Would recommend to anyone!

So far so good
I've been using the clean and clear dual action moisturizer for about a 5 years, which is about the same length that I've been dealing with my acne. I have very dry/oily acne prone skin so I'm scared to try new products, but I decided to try this cetaphil moisturizer because after washing my face with my cerave face wash, my face always got dry even after applying the clean and clear. Anyways, it's my third day using the cetaphil lotion and I haven't broken out at all, I've only woken up to a few small white heads (which is kinda normal for me) so nothing major and I think it has actually calmed my skin down a bit. I guess I wasn't properly moisturizing my skin this whole time. I was nervous to try it because people said it broke them out terribly, but every skin type will react different so I would give it a try. However, I recommend only using a tiny bit because it does leave your face feeling greasy and tacky if you use a lot like I did at first! Also I'm not sure if I like how makeup applies after I apply the lotion because of its tacky-ness.

So far so good
My skin is oily at tmes and dry at times but this moisturiser has been giving me relief from the irritation of topical lotions. Only been using it a short time, but for now I'm happy. I just use it once at night because unfortunately it does leave a very greasy look to the skin. A small amount is all that is needed. EDIT** I test patched this on my next and forehead..they have both broken out with pimples everywhere. Don't recommend.

Great overall moisturizer
I've used this moisturizer for a long time, I made the switch when the Acne.org moisturizer formula was changed several years ago. That change left my face super dry no matter how liberally I applied it, so I gave Cetaphil a try and fell in love. I've found it doesn't irritate my skin or lend to causing breakouts. I can use it for morning or night, and I can use it on my hands, neck, etc. It's versatile. The biggest drawback is that it can leave you with a sheen on your face, so if you prefer a more matte moisturizer you'll want to look elsewhere. I have dry skin and this leaves me looking a bit greasy.

DO NOT PUT THIS ON YOUR FACE IF YOU HAVE MODERATE TO SEVERE ACNE. I only used this product twice and I now have at least 5 more pimples. It's supposed to be non-comedogenic but my pores are ridiculously clogged right now. I started using the cetaphil oil control foam face wash and it seems to work fine, but it's a little drying so I wanted to try their moisturizing products. Huge mistake. I only recommend this if you are not acne prone because it WILL cause angry, clogged pores. I have never used any cetaphil products before so I didn't know what to expect. I may have used too much the first time, it left the greasiest sheen on my face. The second time I used a pea sized amount. A little goes a very long way with this product. it seemed to have soaked in fine but it felt super heavy and throughout the day my face just continued to get even more oily. Don't waste the 2 dollars that this costs.
