Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser Review


Perfume free.


Takes ages to get your make-up off.


After using the Cetaphil face and body lotion, I wanted to try their face cleanser, which is kind of a myth. Apparently both Charlize Theron and Zoe Saldana live by it…so I thought I‘d like some Charlize in my face too…It felt good knowing that it is perfume free and has a great reputation, so my expectations are through the roof. So I go home, and try to wash my make-up off..and what happens? Nothing gets washed off, I have to literally scrub eyes with this cleanser for 5 minutes to get my mascara off. The cleanser kind off just moved around the dirt on my face without actually removing it. And to remove the actual cleanser from my face I have to use very generous amounts off water and a lot of effort. So now we all know that Charlize and Zoe basically don‘t take off their make-up, and that‘s why they are always picture perfect, just like stars should be.

  1. I don’t think it is supposed to take off makeup. A lot of people use it to finish cleansing their face after removing makeup with a balm or oil. It is also good for washing your face in the morning.


  2. I like this product because I have sensitive skin and it’s really good for that. I don’t wear make up though so I can see how this would not be good for that. But I kind of love the no-nonsense-ness about it. My only critique is I wish it had SOME kind of pleasant scent. Thanks for your write-up!
