Cetaphil Hydrating Foaming Cream Cleanser is a gentle yet effective facial cleanser, which is clinically proven to effectively remove dirt, oil, and makeup without stripping the skin of its essential oils or leaving it tight or dry. To use Cetaphil Hydrating Foaming Cream Cleanser, follow these steps:

  1. Wet your face with lukewarm water.
  2. Dispense a small amount of the cleanser into your hands.
  3. Gently massage the cleanser in circular motions onto your face. Avoid the eye area.
  4. Rinse your face thoroughly with lukewarm water.
  5. Pat your face dry with a clean towel.

You can use this cleanser twice daily, in the morning and evening, as part of your daily skincare routine.

Cream cleansers are typically more moisturizing and nourishing than other types of cleansers, making them an ideal option for those with normal to dry or sensitive skin. However, a cream cleanser may not be the best choice for oily skin.

Oily skin is characterized by excess sebum production, which can lead to clogged pores and acne breakout, so if you have oily skin, it is recommended to use a foaming or gel-based cleanser, such as Cetaphil DermaControl Oil Removing Foam Wash, which is designed to effectively remove excess oil and unclog pores without over-drying the skin.

The main differences between a foaming cleanser and a hydrating creamy cleanser are their formulation and how they work to clean the skin.

Foaming cleansers, such as Cetaphil Gentle Foaming Cleanser typically contain surfactants, which create a lather when mixed with water. This lather helps to lift dirt, excess oil, makeup, and impurities from the skin, leaving it feeling clean and refreshed. Cetaphil Gentle Foaming Cleanser is a soap-free foaming cleanser, which contains glycerin as well as vitamins B5 and tocopherol (vitamin E), so that your skin won’t feel tight or dry.

Hydrating creamy cleansers such as Cetaphil Hydrating Foaming Cream Cleanser are formulated with moisturizing ingredients that help to hydrate and nourish the skin. They typically do not produce a lot of lather, while gently dissolving dirt, oil, and makeup from the skin without stripping away its natural oils. In addition, Cetaphil Hydrating Foaming Cream Cleanser is formulated with soothing prebiotic aloe, glycerin, and vitamins B3 (niacinamide) and B5 (panthenol) to help maintain the skin barrier and skin pH levels.

Choosing between a foaming cleanser and a hydrating or creamy cleanser will depend on your skin type and concerns. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, a foaming cleanser may work best for you, while those with dry or sensitive skin may prefer a hydrating creamy cleanser.

The best cleanser for dehydrated skin will depend on your specific skin concerns, but creamy cleansers are generally a good option, as they are typically more gentle and less likely to strip the skin of its natural oils.

As Cetaphil Hydrating Foaming Cream Cleanser contains moisturizing ingredients like glycerin and aloe vera that help to hydrate and nourish your skin while cleansing, it’s one of the best cleansers for dry and dehydrated skin.

"I love this beautiful nourishing cream-to-foam cleanser for those with dry to normal, sensitive skin. The Hydrating Foaming Cream Cleanser is formulated with the science-backed ingredients Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, and hydrating Glycerin. The pH balanced formula is clinically proven to remove pore-clogging dirt, oil and makeup while maintaining the skin's natural protective barrier, leaving the skin feeling soft and smooth, never dry and tight."


Hydrating Foaming Cream Cleanser Quote


Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product Produces a Gentle, Rich Foam This review is in response to those individuals out there that have claimed that this product does not foam or smells horrible. Number one, the product starts off as a “Cream” cleanser and once applied to the skin, does in fact produce a rich and gentle foam. As for fragrance? This product is fragrance free and what you are smelling are the ingredients in their “Natural” state. There isn’t anything offensive about the smell of this product at all. This product offers an exceptional, gentle clean to those individuals whom possess dehydration, no matter the skin type. This formulation is also suitable for use on the hands for daily hand hygiene.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fresh, Clean & Non-stripping! This facial cleanser does not foam in the typical sense, but it does provide a rich feel while on the skin. Once rinsed off of the complexion one’s skin feels squeaky clean, yet not stripped. This product removes sunscreen and makeup easily. 1 to 2 pumps is all that it takes for a clean, fresh and soft feeling complexion. This product does not stink or smell like vomit, a previous review has claimed. This product is “fragrance free”, thus what you smell is the formula in its natural state. Fragrance causes irritation and allergic reactions. I love this product and highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is so good! I received this product from Influenster and Cetaphil in exchange for my honest review. This face wash truly exceeds my expectations. I have always struggled with various face washes making my skin feel dry and tight, this face wash does not do that. It lives up to the “hydration line” title and really makes your skin feel hydrated. The consistency is amazing and did a great job of washing off my makeup without having to use any makeup remover. I have used Cetaphil face wash in the past and this one is the best yet. I would definitely consider buying another bottle of this when my current one is empty. Definitely give it a try if you have dry skin!
