Cleanse skin with a gentle yet effective cleanser morning and night

Immediately follow with a facial moisturizer to lock in hydration

After cleansing, quickly follow with a facial moisturizer to help immediately hydrate and lock in vital moisture. During the day, it is also recommended to use a facial SPF moisturizer with sun protection such as Daily Facial Moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF 35 to deliver nourishing hydration and protect your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays.




Apply a moisturizer at night to help your skin rehydrate, renew and repair

Using a moisturizer before bed, such as Daily Oil-Free Hydrating Lotion with hyaluronic acid, helps to boost skin’s moisture reserves and protect skin from dryness throughout the night so that skin looks and feels refreshed every morning.



Rated 5 out of 5 by from #1 Sensitive Skin Acne Wash For Every Day Use I am 14 years old and I've been using this for 2 years and my acne is practically "not even there" as my high-school friends tell me. Cetaphil transforms my oily, acne-prone skin into a beautiphil masterpiece. I had spent many hoping to find a facial wash to abolish the terrible acne that I had dealt with. My skin is super sensitive to fragrance and I'm allergic to benzoyl peroxide, thankfully Cetaphil was there for me. Note to readers: If your skin possibly becomes too dry just apply a small penny size amount of lotion to moisturize your entire face. Be aware that too much lotion can lead to having oily skin.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WHY would you change your formula?!?! I have used this cleanser for close to 20 years! It’s gentle on my tends toward oily but sensitive skin. I’m someone who likes to try the latest and greatest but I’ve been highly loyal to this amazing face wash.... until tonight when I opened a new bottle from the two pack I bought from Sam’s recently. Totally different consistency- almost oily and completely clear and HIGHLY perfumed!! I can’t imagine my skin will react well to this so I’ll likely be going elsewhere for my face wash after a great run with Cetaphil.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Good, the Bad, and the Heavily Fragranced The Good: I have mature (49), normal-to-dry skin, but I accidentally purchased this thinking it was the gentle skin cleanser. I was pleasantly surprised that after using this product, my skin actually felt soft and did not feel stripped. The texture is also nice - it's thin for a gel but has a little lather to it, which for better or worse, I do enjoy in a cleanser. The Not-So-Good: That being said, I would appreciate if the different products had more distinct labeling. Also... MAN, this product is so heavily scented (with a fragrance I find very off-putting) that I can practically taste it. Wouldn't buy again unless a fragrance-free version comes out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Formula changed for the worse I have been using cetaphil faithfully for years- it cleaned my face without residue, took off makeup, didn’t dry my skin. I just purchased a new bottle, and it has definitely changed. It used to be clear and now it’s opaque like there is lotion mixed in it. It will not remove makeup no matter how many times I wash my face. It seems like there’s a slimy layer left when I rinse my face. What happened?? It doesn’t say that it changed, and the only difference seems to be that where I think it used to say face cleanser now it says “for face and body”, but I definitely wouldn’t use it for my body, and I won’t continue using it for my face. I’ll be looking for a new face wash.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WARNING: This product contains FRAGRANCE I've been using Cetaphil's, general purpose, Gentle Skin Cleanser. I recently used Cetaphil's Daily Facial Cleanser because I thought it would be even more "gentle" on my face. I was wrong! Unlike the Gentle Skin Cleanser, it contains masking fragrance. I "assumed" and didn't read the label. It made my face sting/burn and bright red all day long. Question for Cetaphil. Why did you decide to start using a masking fragrance in a product that people are using on their face? I'll be giving this product to someone that is not sensitive to fragrance and using the Gentle Skin Cleanser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gentle & Remove Dirt I mostly use this whenever I feel my face is very filthy. It is very gentle and effective cleanser that is designed to remove dirt, oil, and other impurities from my skin without stripping away its natural moisture barrier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I bought this product as well as the mositerizer, on the side I bought witch hazel toner and rose water because my skin was just so dry and acne prone. I don’t even use the toner everyday cause this cleanser picks up all the dirt and just makes my face feel amazing! Love this product and definitely will be recommending it to everyone!
