Keep cleanser close by

I use Cetaphil because I suffer from dry, itchy skin that started nearly 2 years ago and has progressively been getting worse. Cetaphil is the only product line I use, as it doesn't burn or make me itchy but leaves me feeling clean and refreshed. I also keep a bottle of Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser in the bathroom at work, and I carry a bottle of it in my purse, as generally public washrooms and friends’ houses have scented soaps I cannot use on my sensitive skin. Since I started using Cetaphil 3 months ago, my skin has improved. Thanks for 65 years!

Quickly correct makeup mishaps

I started getting dry, itchy skin in my late teens and Cetaphil was the only brand that worked to both cleanse and hydrate. I also love using Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser on a cotton swab if I make a mistake while doing my makeup. Such a multipurpose product!

Save with Cetaphil

My esthetician advised me to purchase Cetaphil rather than sell me the very expensive cleanser/moisturizer available in their shop. She told me Cetaphil is as good (if not better!) than some of the more expensive product lines, and guess what? She was right! I will be 55 years young in December and people tell me I look more like I’m 45. I love Cetaphil and use it every day! My skin care tip is to ALWAYS clean and moisturize your face every morning and every night with Cetaphil. Thanks for the great, affordable product!

Keep your kids itch-free

We use the RESTORADERM line for my 4-year-old daughter, as it was recommended by her dermatologist for her dry, itchy skin. We use the Nourishing Moisture Wash once in the morning after a quick shower then the Replenishing Moisture Lotion all over her body. We re-apply the lotion before bedtime. This routine keeps her itchiness at bay. 

Cleanse without water

I like the fact that I can take Cetaphil camping and use it for cleansing when lots of water is not available. Thanks for a great product!

Wash when needed without drying out

As a young adult, I had lots of pimples, so my dermatologist told me to use Cetaphil since it’s gentle enough even for babies. I am in my 50’s now and still using the same gentle face wash: Cetaphil. I have introduced this product to a few of my running and fitness friends since you can wash 2 or 3 times per day without having a dry feeling on your face. Thank you, Cetaphil!

Stick with what works

Before using Cetaphil, I avoided cleansers and moisturizers like they were the bane of my existence! I would fall in love with a cleanser ad, try it, hate what it did to my combination-oily skin, swear off cleansers, and repeat that cycle all over again. I wouldn't ever use moisturizers unless it was the middle of winter, my skin was flaking, and I was forced to dab on globs of moisturizer that felt like a silicon mask. A while later, a friend with sensitive skin recommended a few products from Cetaphil. The first product I ever bought from Cetaphil was the mild Gentle Skin Cleanser created for all sensitive skin types. I was hooked on it within a week! Soon after, I tried the Moisturizing Lotion, and one buy led to another! Now, I'm a regular user of the same cleanser and the new DERMACONTROL Oil Control Moisturizer with SPF30. I'm not switching brands EVER!

Feel fresh at any age

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is inexpensive, fragrance-free, and even removes eye makeup, eliminating the need for an eye makeup remover. It's gentle and leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean. I am 70 years old and always get compliments on my skin.

Tissue off all traces of eye makeup

I love how the Gentle Skin Cleanser removes eye makeup – especially mascara. I put a drop on each eyelid, massage with my fingertips in a circular motion, and tissue off. It doesn’t even sting if it gets into my eyes.

Keep your complexion clear

Cetaphil was recommended to me by a dermatologist about 20 years ago and I have used it ever since. The gentle, non-irritating cleanser leaves my skin feeling fresh. The Daily Facial Moisturizer provides not only hydration, but SPF protection. I use Cetaphil products daily and believe they contribute to the clear, youthful complexion I'm so very fortunate to have at 64 years old.
