Cetaphil gentle skin Cleanser is a much hyped facial cleanser well loved by dermatologists.
Cetaphil must be the most prescribed facial cleanser in the world. Either their manufacturer must possess excellent PR machinery or the product must be gold. It is a gel cleanser that does not lather much. It comes in a pump and also with a flip top cap in India. In India it is mostly found in medical shops. It is perfume free and smells faintly like medicine. This facial cleanser is being advertised as the best cleanser for those who suffer from Acne. I do not have acne and so cannot comment on that.
Effectiveness of a product also depends on the geographic location of the user. I was prescribed this face wash when I was living in a hot and humid place. It left traces of makeup or dirt on the face. So it could not match up with the humidity and pollution in India. There is nothing special in the list of ingredients but it might still be a milder version of face washes available in the market.
This is known as the make up remover of celebrities even though I would personally prefer castor oil or any other oil. Makeup is first removed by applying cetaphil on the face and wiped it off with cotton. It can also be massaged into face and washed with water.
My final verdict- This product might be effective for those living in a place with less pollution. It does not have perfume and might suit those with sensitive skin. Ignore the hype and buy travel size packs first before buying from costco like me.
