Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser Review

Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser Review


I’ve acne-prone oily skin and I am always looking for cleaners and products which can keep zits and breakouts at bay. My friend recommended me to try out this Cetaphil Oily skin cleanser because she swears by it. I thought of giving it a try because summers means an invitation to my scars and zits so I was hoping this cleanser would be effective. Read on to know if it lived up to the claims or not.




Price: INR 320 for 125 ml






My Take on the productCetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser comes in ordinary white colored plastic bottle with flip-top cap. The packaging is not at all travel friendly because the fluid inside can leak through the cap even with mildest pressure. But overtime I have realized that good things always come in ordinary packaging so I actually don’t have any complain about it. The product inside is transparent and runny in texture. It has a very light scent which isn’t very bothering and it fades within few minutes.

I like using cleansers which foam well so that they give you a feeling of effective cleaning and when I bought it I was thinking initially that it won’t foam up well. However it makes a light lather but still gives a feeling that my skin is well cleaned. If used more than one pump, it makes a rich lather and I sometimes end up using it more than required.

It lives up to the claims of removing face makeup without clogging the pores and leaves the face squeaky clean after every wash. However removes light makeup (bb cream and powder) so do not expect it to remove your heavy duty foundation and concealer. It removes dirt, oil and grime very effectively without stripping away natural oil. It doesn’t make my skin dry but dry skinned beauties might feel the need of moisturizing their skin. The cleanser doesn’t feel harsh on skin and I’ve never experienced any irritation or burning sensation while using it even though it contains SLS and other chemicals. My face stays shine and oil-free for 3-4 hours in the humid Delhi weather which is amazing. I have experienced that it keeps my acne and zits at bay and my feels incredibly great since the day I’ve started using it.
