Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser Review

Hi All.

Now a happy happy review about my HG cleanser!! I love it, My Fav – Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser.
This one never fails. I always love it best. For last 2 years I am using it religiously and it has defeated all those pimples and acne and has relieved me a ton.

Cetaphil Cleanser for very oily skin, acne prone skin

My skin is oily that is prone to acne and pimples so I always like to use products that will help control oil and acne.

Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser is a product that I found on some online shopping website and as we all are aware of cetaphil, I ordered it to give it a try. I have been using it for past few months and I am loving it. It has worked for me real well in every way. Pimple occurrence has reduced to a great extent. Oil is also controlled. I can’t even imagine sleeping without washing my face with Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser.

Up until then I was pretty much into anti-acne face washes and used all products from Neutrogena to Garnier, I’ve been there and done that.


Cetaphil says: 

Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser provides effective cleansing for oily, combination or blemished 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’s 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 Skin Cleanser does not clog pores and can be used in conjunction with acne medication.

What I like about the Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser is that it is formulated to remove oil from the skin, exactly what I need for my combination skin type. It has a flip open cap.

The product comes out as a clear liquid that feels gentle and soft on the skin. It foams up a little, not too much. Once I rinse it off, it really does leave my face feeling clean and fresh. I can feel that it has cleansed the oils off my face. It does not dry out my skin which is also good.

My skin regularly had breakouts, but after I started using this, the condition has really improved. No more breakout for me. It also is great at removing light makeup. This can be used morning and night to keep the skin. It has a medicated light smell but now I am use to it, it doesn’t bother me. I really do feel that the Cetaphil Oily Skin cleanser is great at controlling the oils on my face and therefore helps to reduce the amount of pimples/breakouts I get. (of course this is only if you continue to use it regularly)

Overall, the Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser is something I would definitely recommend to anyone who has oily skin with breakouts, as it will help to control and clean the oils from your skin, which is what I love about it the most!
