Spotlight | Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser.

I first became acquainted with the brand Cetaphil when I was a teenager. I used to have mild eczema back then, and those nasty rashes would usually flare-up under extreme weather conditions - that is, during the hot summer months or during the nippy months of December and January.

One of the dermatologists that I had consulted recommended Cetaphil in lieu of my usual bath soap and facial wash. I was skeptical at first since I knew very little of the brand ('googling' wasn't even a verb back in '98, lol), but I tried it anyway. And lo and behold - after a few weeks of use, the dry, flaky patches were gone, the itching has subsided, and flare-ups weren't as sporadic as before.

This is the main reason why I have a penchant for Cetaphil products, particularly the Gentle Skin Cleanser. 
Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser.
Originally formulated for dermatologists, this gentle, soap-free cleanser is recommended for everyday use, even for those with very sensitive skin. It has a mild, non-irritating formulation that soothes and moisturizes as it cleanses the skin. This cleanser is suitable for all skin types - even on kids' and babies' delicate skin - and can be used on both face and body.
Product claims listed at the back of the bottle.
The Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser can be used with or without water.
When using it without water, you simply apply a generous amount on your skin and gently rub. Afterwards, wipe the excess with a cotton ball or a piece of tissue. On the other hand, when used with water, you simply apply it on your skin, rub it gently, and rinse when done.
Directions for use + list of ingredients.
This cleanser is non-lathering (no foam or bubbles whatsoever), unscented, and has a thin and watery consistency. It can remove makeup, but only if you're wearing non-waterproof products. If you're fond of wearing waterproof eyeliners and mascaras like me, you'll have to supplement this cleanser with a real makeup remover.
Here's how the cleanser looks like.
I like that this cleanser is non-comedogenic (meaning it won't clog your pores and trap dirt and oil on your face) and it doesn't leave the skin feeling tight and dry. Best of all, I've never had breakouts or allergies with this product. Safe for sensitive skin! :)
And here' s Cetaphil cleansing away the eyeshadow swatches on my skin.
The Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser comes in five different sizes - the pocket-sized 60 mL (Php 105), 118 mL (Php 170), 250 mL (Php 323), 473 mL (Php 650), and the 1 Litre that comes in a pump bottle. Cetaphil products are available at leading drugstores (Watson's, Mercury, South Star) and supermarkets nationwide.

My son always gets dry rough spots on and around his elbows. I would def. be willing to give this a try to help get rid of it for him!

I had no idea that Cetaphil made a cleanser. I thought they only had lotion products. I'll have to look for this soap next time my son's eczema flares up.

Like you, my friend has been introduced to cetaphil when she was hitting puberty and had lots of pimples. When it stopped, she stopped using it too. But now her pimples are making a comeback so I’ll try recommending it to her again.

I'm so lucky that I don't have sensitive skin. But I was able to try this for Gwen since Cetaphil is known for being gentle even on baby's skin.

I've been a long-time user of Cetaphil now! :D Agree that it's super gentle on the skin. Very helpful especially for those with sensitive skin, like mine.

As you said though, it doesn't do well with removing waterproof makeup so I use Cetaphil when I'm not wearing a lot of products on my face (which is almost everyday).
