Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser Review | Best Face Wash For Sensitive Skin | Noncomedogenic, pH balanced and fragrance-free Face Wash

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser Review


Cetaphil has been a fan favourite for a very long time. Even Dermatologists recommend this product to their patients. It is one of the most trustworthy brands in terms of skincare. I've always wanted to try Cetaphil products ever since I stumbled upon Cetaphil Dam Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Lotion (Sadly, I could not review the same as my pet Dora destroyed the product one fine day).  Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser has been listed as one of the best Face Wash for sensitive skin as it is non-comedogenic and maintains your skin pH. It is a non-irritating and soothing cleanser both for skin and body which is fragrance-free as well.

Rs.431 for 250 ml - Amazon | Nykaa

It comes in a simple white plastic packaging, which is very basic and simple. The 125ml bottle does not contain a pump, whereas the other variants do contain a pump so that you can control the amount of product you want.

CONSISTENCY:

This cleanser has a white milky consistency which has micro shimmer particles if you look close enough. 


MY EXPERIENCE WITH Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser:

If you have dry skin or sensitive skin, then this product is totally a boon for you. I have a combination skin type, with an oily T zone and the rest of my face is quite dry. In this dry season, my face tends to get quite dry and flaky, which is not at all cute. 

So, whenever I try this face cleanser, it thus not make my face dry at all. Since it contains Propylene Glycol, it leaves your skin well moisturized without making it oily. This cleanser removes the dirt and grime from your face but will not remove your makeup totally if you are wearing any. 


I love the fact that it is not harsh on the skin at all, and not only can it be used for your face but also can be used on your body as well. It is a foaming cleanser and soothes the skin. Since it has non-comedogenic properties, people with oily skin and acne prone skin can totally use it without causing any breakout. But, if you have super oily skin, I don't feel that it will clean your skin thoroughly. I'd highly recommend this to those who have sensitive skin or are suffering from dry-flaky skin.

But, apart from being a super raved about and highly effective product, this cleanser is not free of SLS and parabens :(
