Review: Cetaphil (Gentle Skin Cleanser)

I’ve always seen cetaphil around, but I’ve never felt the desire to buy it: it’s supposed to be “gentle,” and gentle is not something I felt my acne-prone skin needed. However, one day, I discovered a bottle lying around the house and appropriated it for my own use. Since it had a manufacturing and expiration date clearly marked at the bottom of the bottle, I figured it was still fine.

After 3 weeks of using cetaphil once a day, I’ve realized that this cleanser is not for me. Gentle is clearly not the way to go for my skin. Too bad!

Water, Cetyl Alcohol, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate,  Stearyl Alcohol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Butylparaben.

  • Gentle on the skin.
  • Has clearly labelled manufacturing and expiration date.

  • Those who dislike parabens will not like this product. For an ingredient list consisting of 8 chemicals, 3 parabens seems to be a bit much.

  • This goes for other products too: try the small size to see if it works for you before committing to a big bottle.

  • For those who have no skin problems.
  • For those who have sensitive skin.
