Cetaphil Cleansing Lotion for Sensitive Skin Review


CETAPHIL Face Cleansing Lotion - Best Face Wash for SENSITIVE Acne Prone Skin

Today I am going to review my all time favorite CETAPHIL CLEANSING LOTION. This lotion is specially meant for Sensitive Skin & this is the reason it suits me so well that I keep buying it again & again. I have acne prone sensitive skin and I have to be careful while choosing the products since most of them react badly or harm my delicate skin in some way or the other. I avoid buying harsh products and prefer them in gentle form, even better if they are homemade. Like most of the toners sting on my sensitive skin making it red irritated, so I made my own toner for sensitive acne prone skin which has improved my skin texture a lot. But since I could not make an homemade cleanser for sensitive skin, I thought of giving this a try since it specially for sensitive skin. While using this Cetaphil Lotion, I don’t get a single acne, that’s why I just love this lotion & come back to it whenever I face any problem like itching, acne etc.

Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Lotion Review

I take my own precautions before choosing any product since I have delicate skin which breaks out easily. Though I get very few pimple now but still my skin starts to itch or gets red sometimes, that’s why I m very choosy. When I came to know about this cleansing lotion , I immediately bought it since it says that its meant for sensitve skin, moreover its medicated & also recommended by many Dermatologists.

This lotion comes in a simple white colored plastic bottle with a flip at top.

This lotion is fragrance free as claimed or I could say the smell is very negligible & is little thicker than other lotions with white color.

Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser Review

On application, the lotion appears to be extremely gentle, which actually proves that this is the lotion meant for sensitive skin. In fact when I used it for the first time, I felt there is almost no lather in this cleanser thus no proper cleaning of facial skin. I kept rubbing in order to get at least some foam but I just felt as if I am rubbing some moisturizing cream on my face. It was so gentle and froth free.  Although it lathers very less, still I felt my skin clean with little glow on it. I did not feel my skin to be dry at all after washing face with this, rather it appeared more nourished than before. Whenever I use a face wash which is slightly harsh or lathers little more than usual, my skin feels very tight and stretchy. In this case, it was just opposite, my skin felt instantly nourished with a slight glow because of the creamy lotion.

So I just love this Cetaphil Cleansing Lotion, since it did not irritate my sensitive skin, cleaned it well, without causing a single acne resulting into a smooth skin with lovely touch. This lotion can be used by all skin types easily but I would not use it in heavy summers, when I want my oily tired skin to be exfoliated with matt feeling. I would keep this creamy lotion for winters and stick to my regular facial cleanser for acne prone skin.

Extremely gentle.
Truly meant for sensitive skin.
Did not give a single acne.
Fragrance free & non comedogenic.
Easily available at any medical store.

Oily skin people would not like to use it in summers when skin is super oily.

RATING- 4.5/5
