The Brand, Cetaphil, is trusted by many people having sensitive and problematic skin. Cetaphil is one such brand which targets its products for sensitive skin. Their products are non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, non-irritating, and is also recommended by skin doctors.

Their gentle skin cleanser is loved by many as it does not irritate the problematic skin. 

During my recent visit to a local pharmacy, I saw this cleanser from Cetaphil having "Oily Skin Cleanser" written on it and I immediately decided to buy it because first, it for my skin type that is sensitive and acne-prone, plus, it was specially made for oily skin.

My Skin Type - Combination to Oily, Sensitive, and Acne-Prone Skin.

Packaging- It comes in a standard Cetaphil packaging, that is, squeezable bottle with a flip-flop cap, having a nozzle to dispense the product. The cap is tight enough but I can't really say about the packaging being travel-friendly because the product is of runny consistency and you never know!

Fragrance- I really the fragrance of it. It is somewhat medicated but in a very pleasant way. Not at all bothering.

My Experience

Because their gentle cleanser was way too mild for my personal liking, I expected this oily skin cleanser to be little more strong than that. But, to be honest, this is again is a mild cleanser for my personal satisfaction.

Ideally, this is the kind of cleansers we oily skin people should be using because do not strip the natural oils and also do not irritate the skin.

But, here in Delhi/NCR, summers are extremely hot, humid, and there is pollution and smoke throughout the year. By using mild cleansers, my skin turns oily, sweaty, and greasy in a few hours which I do not want. That is the reason I prefer deep pore cleansers for my oily skin. 


Yes, such deep cleansers leave skin slightly dry but to be honest, this is what I personally find satisfying and these deep cleansers only work really the best for me.

With mild cleansers, I always feel there is a soapy layer left behind and same I felt with this Cetaphil oily skin cleanser.

This cleanser is runny in consistency and does not form any lather. It does cleanse but leaves a layer of moisture behind. Even though this is what they claim, that is, "non-drying" but for me, this isn't the most satisfying feeling after using a cleanser.

True to the claims of being non-irritating, it didn't irritate my skin any further but at the same time, I didn't notice any results on my existing acne. Whereas a deep pore cleanser works really for me in fading away clogged pores and pimples.

Within a few hours of washing my face with the Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser, my face turned oily, dull, and greasy and I had to wash my face at a very short interval. 

I feel this cleanser too mild for us who live in extremely hot and humid places with a high level of pollution.

If you are someone who personally likes mild cleanser, then this will be an ideal fit for you. I feel, for me, this will work better during winter days or when my skin feels slightly dry and flaky.

In Short,
Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser is a mild everyday cleanser with non-drying and non-irritating properties. It doesn't irritate the skin further and is suitable for problematic skin but also doesn't work on existing pimples or clogged pores. I personally do not like mild cleansers hence I didn't find it much satisfying. It does cleanse but leaves a layer of moisture behind which I don't find satisfying and I think it will work during winter days or for dry skin people only.


Pros
  • Suitable for Sensitive and Problematic Skin
  • Does not irritate the skin
  • Cleanses well
  • Has a mild fragrance
  • Non-Comedogenic
  • If you love mild cleansers, you will love it.
  • Moisturizing (For those who avoid strong drying cleansers)

Cons
  • Too mild for my liking
  • Doesn't do anything to get rid of clogged pores
  • Too mild for people living in humid and polluted cities 
  • Leaves a layer of moisture behind which I personally do not find satisfying

So This was it for today. I hope you have found this post helpful.

Have a Good Day! 😇
