Product Review: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser was one of the first products that I ever considered a ‘holy grail’ item in my skin care routine. When I first started paying attention to what I was using on my skin I did some research on cleansers and the name Cetaphil kept popping up all over the place. A few of my friends were using Cetaphil at the time so I decided to buy myself a tub to try out and I’ve never looked back. I use this as a sort of pre-cleanser. I apply it to my face, massage it into my skin and then remove with a couple of cotton pads before my evening shower; where I rinse the excess product off of my face. I usually follow with my regular cleanser (which at the moment is the Kate Somerville gentle facial wash) just to make sure I get a really deep clean. This is a product that I always return to when my skin starts playing up because I know that it’s gentle and I know how well it works for me. The Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser retails for $15.99 AUD and can be purchased from pharmacies Australia wide.

10 Thoughts on “Product Review: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

  1. I can never decide between this, Dermalogica Precleanse or Alpha-H Triple Action Cleanser for my pre-shower ‘makeup melter’. Crazy differences in price I know. I’m due to give the Cetaphil another go actually with my Alpha-H down to the last few pumps. My in-shower cleanser is currently Skinstitut’s Gentle Cleanser with the Clarisonic Mia and it’s probably the best Clarisonic combo I’ve found so far. I wonder what it is about Cetaphil that just makes it so nice to use…

  2. I found this broke me out, and since I get 3 zits a year I steered clear of it… Maybe I should have stuck with it?

  3. I use this. And I definitely recommend it!!

  4. This is good stuff! I ended up switching to Dermaveen as my cheap pre-cleanse since I needed marginally more power to shed the oil – but Cetaphil is famously wonderful. Three different makeup artists I’ve met carry around the cleanser and moisturiser in their kits since it’s least likely to mess up anyones skin.

  5. I am thinking of trying this when my dermalogica ultracalming cleanser runs out. I have heard that the cetaphil cleanser is very similar.
