Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser


Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser provides effective cleansing for oily, combination or acne-prone skin.  Its gentle foaming action removes oil, dirt, skin debris and makeup without leaving your skin dry and, importantly, without the tightness that results from soap-based cleansers.  That is because it is formulated to remove oil without affecting the skin barrier.  ( Skin acts as a barrier, keeping moisture in so it is important that a cleanser works without compromising the skin barrier ).  Cetaphil Oily Cleanser does not clog pores and can be used in conjunction with acne medication.

Higher than normal levels of sebum production is the reason why skin appears oily.  Used twice daily for two weeks on people with moderately oily skin.  Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser reduced sebum levels by up to 60% without over drying the skin.

Suitable for oily and acne-prone skin.

Ingredients : Aqua (purified water/eau purifiée), PEG-200 hydrogenated glyceryl palmate (and) PEG-7 glyceryl cocoate, sodium lauroyl sarcosinate, acrylates/steareth-20 methacrylate copolymer, glycerin, sodium laureth sulfate, butylene glycol, phenoxyethanol, parfum (masking fragrance/fragrance masquante), panthenol, PEG-60 hydrogenated castor oil, disodium EDTA, methylparaben.

My Experience

I received this sample in the mail.

This transparent cleanser has a strong medicine smell and lathers to tiny bubbles.  Its smooth texture reminds me of Hada Labo’s Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Lotion. 

Pour cleanser onto palm, add a little water, rub both palms together to lather and apply onto face.  Rub in circular motion on my face, eyes and neck.  Then rinse off with water.

After washing, my face does not feel tight and dry.  I do not have the comfortable clean and refresh feeling, instead I feel it is coated in a layer of emollient oil .  Shortly after, my face is oily again. 

It does not thoroughly remove make up, need to use cleansing milk.  Even when I am without make up, I do not feel it will wash away the dust and dirt from my face. 

Since I do not feel my skin is clean after washing, I use it only in the morning when I wake up from bed.  The air inside my home is definitely cleaner than the outside.

This is a cleanser to temporary washes away the oily shine on my face.  I see no improvement on my skin.  My face is still oily with frequent pimples and blemishes. 

My hubby’s face feels itchy when he uses this cleanser.
