Beauty Review: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

The consequences of working in an air-conditioned desk-bound job have surfaced for the past year or so. My skin is a lot drier than before. I guess it could also be due to age since I have already sadly crossed the ’25’ range. 🙁

When one gets older, the skin’s ability to maintain its moisture content decreases due to a reduction in function of sebaceous and sweat glands in the skin. This is one of the main culprits causing the formation of wrinkles.

It is very important that you choose a suitable facial cleanser for your skin. There were some facial cleansers which left me feeling all tight and dry on my skin after using them, which I have since avoided. If you have encountered the same situation, it is very obvious that you are using the wrong facial cleanser for your skin type or there is a particular ingredient that is not suitable for you, and hence should avoid it all together.

What brand comes to mind whenever ‘dry skin’ is being mentioned?



Cetaphil has been a very well-known brand, due to its ability to retain moisture in the skin, gently hydrating it, without causing irritation as it is also catered to sensitive skin. Apart from dry skin, I have occasional sensitivity on certain areas of my skin as well, such as my cheek and lip areas. So I have to be ultra careful not to irritate further, otherwise these areas would turn reddish and flake after. Very unsightly indeed, especially after applying make-up.

The cleanser comes in a lotion-like form which does not feel sticky after applying and washing, hence giving a very light feeling.

Also, I know how some of us tend to prefer having this real squeaky clean feel after cleansing your face. However, I had read somewhere that this actually means that your facial cleanser is drying your skin as it strips off your natural moisture. And we all know that having dry skin also equates to higher possibility of wrinkles and of pimples popping out, since the skin has to produce more sebum to compensate the lack of moisture, thus clogging the pores.

Thankfully, Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser does not leave your skin feeling all dried out. 🙂

There are two methods in using Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser – with or without water, which provides great convenience to cleanse your face even on-the-go!

After using Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, my skin feels soft and supple, without any irritation caused! 😀
