my wife and i have found that a bar of cetaphil in the show is a must in the shower as it is not only great to bet your body clean, but a great way to handle and repair dry skin

My Daily Facial Cleanser

I cannot live without this product. My face gets clearer overnight after use, and it doesn't irritate or overdry my oily, acne prone aging skin. Used with a good oil free moisturizer and some type of exfoliant (I use mandelic acid), the Cetaphil bar gets the job done.

Trusted brand, amazing results

I have used this facial soap for years. I started using it in my early 20's when I started getting hormonal acne due to pregnancy. I still used this soap even after the babies came. It cleared up my acne, even though the product does not specifically state that is what it is for. I love this soap because it is a gentle cleanser that penetrates deep into the pores and leaves your face feeling super clean with feeling dry or tight. I like that this brand of soap comes in different formulas, as the one shown above, sensitive and anti-bacterial. The anti-bacterial is the one that I personally use. Effectiveness Leaves your face very clean without dryness or tight feeling. My personal experience has been that the anti-bacterial formula helped clear my acne, even though the product does not claim to do so. Ease of Application Just like any other bar of soap, wet it, lather up, wash your face and rinse. You're done! Scent This products is unscented, however there is a slight scent of soap. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

Great for sensitive skin

I've used many different soaps to help with my dry, sensitive, eczema ridden skin and Cetaphil has given me the best results consistently. It helps my skin stay smooth and soft. It doesn't dry out my skin and I've never had a reaction to it(other soaps have given me rashes). It hasn't cured my eczema(didn't expect it to) but it has greatly helped. It's my go to choice for soap. I won't use anything else! Effectiveness It works well. It's strong enough to remove all my makeup and the dirt and grime from the day. I use this soap when I shower after working out/ doing yard work and it works against body odors too(tmi?). Ease of Application Cetaphil is very gentle and cleans and lathers well. It also rinses away easily and doesn't leave a residue or sticky feeling. I love how it makes my skin feel so moisturized after showering. Scent The scent of this soap isn't strong. The closest thing I can compare it to smelling like is baby powder. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar - good for sensitive skin

I use Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Lotion, and I like it very much, but sometimes I wanted my face to feel a little "cleaner" - for example, in the summer, when cleaning with a lotion leaves my face feeling a little too oily. A clerk in a drug store recommended the Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar instead. The soap works really well, just like the Lotion, in that it doesn't cause my skin to break out or become irritated. The soap also does not leave my face feeling dry or tight. Another benefit is that the lotion tended to clog up in the pump dispenser, and it was hard to clean it out; the bar of soap obviously doesn't have that problem. And even though I keep this soap in the shower, where it gets wet a lot even when not being used, it doesn't get mushy or gooey like some soaps do. Finally, the bar lasts longer than the lotion. Overall, I recommend this soap for dry or sensitive skin. Scent It has no scent. I like this because I know I'm not adding any additional additives or chemicals from perfume to my skin. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

I was recommended this ...

I was recommended this stuff by a dermatologist and I can't figure out why. It did seem like a gentle cleanser, but my skin dried out and began flaking really bad after two weeks of this stuff. No amount of moisturizer could get my skin to behave. It did nothing for my mild breakouts. I've stopped using this stuff and have switched to Beauty Without Cruelty's Herbal Cream Cleanser, and the flaking has stopped and my skin is much better. No way will I use this Cetaphil stuff again.

Just be really careful with your skin. Try and use something that is gentle. I’d try this bar and maybe a round soft brush or wash cloth.
