Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin Review

Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin Review
My skin type
: Normal.

My rating: 5 sit and spins

What I like about it
: I've used this for years and years. It does exactly what a cleanser should. It cleans your skin without drying it. It isn't expensive and the container lasts a long time.
What I hate about it: Nothing comes to mind.
Be careful not to buy: Don't buy the cleanser for normal to dry skin, unless your skin is very dry. Then it will be very good. The normal to dry skin version does not remove make-up as well as the normal to oily version. The normal to oily version doesn't dry your skin, so it should be good for most people. My sister tried the target store brand version of the Cetaphil normal to oily and did not like it.

People will try to tell you you need fancy things in your cleansers like antioxidants and Alpha and beta hydroxy acids. Bologna. Cleanser is only on you face for about 15 seconds. Those ingredients can't do anything in that amount of time besides get into your eyes. If something actually could work in a few seconds, then it should probably be applied by a professional in a doctors office and not trusted to the likes of you and me. Antioxidants and beta and alpha hydroxy acids are great ingredients for things that will stay on your face like serums and moisturizers. They are stupid in cleansers. Save your money on cleansers. Basic is better.
Cetaphil is good for people with sensitive skin. It's a basic cleanser without added ingredients to irritate your skin.

This should work well for everyone who doesn't have very dry or very oily skin. I highly recommend it.


  1. I've been using Cetaphil Gentle for years, even though I have slightly oily skin. The Cetaphil Daily dries for my skin for whatever reason.

    I recently tried some of the knock offs. I found that the Walgreens version had some kind of grit in it (I even removed the pump and cleaned it out, but the grit kept going). Now I'm trying the Target version and it seems to be causing a slight allergic reaction! I thought they were all identical, but in the future I'm going to stick to actual Cetaphil.

    I agree that basic is better. I went in to see a dermatologist when I was having problems and she recommended Cetaphil. I miss scent and suds, but it's worth it for good skin.


  2. I actually enjoyed reading through this posting.Many thanks.
