Not too long ago I was having multiple breakouts and my skin was looking horrible, I decided to get a professional opinion and booked an appointment with a dermatologist (I HAD NO IDEA that dermatologists were so busy!) and I obtained an appointment for six weeks later. The wait was endless and it felt like my skin was getting worse.
Upon visiting the dermatologist, I discovered I had acne. The doctor prescribed multiple different types of medication and creams and recommended that I use Cetaphil as part of my daily cleansing routine.
I followed the doctors orders and purchased the smaller bottle of the Cetaphil cleanser for oily skin. It was extremely gentle on the skin and it felt lovely when I washed with it every day. After a weak of usage my skin started getting extremely dry, and there was patches on my face where the skin was peeling off, because of the dryness my skin felt horrible, it was extremely uncomfortable and when I tried to apply something to moisturize my skin, it burnt because of the dryness of my skin. I stopped using it immediately and after alot of product my skin was able to get its moisture back.
Giving the price and the tall promises of the product, I would think that it would work better on the skin especially since its developed for acne prone skin and multiple tests have been done before the product reaches the market. Instead of it fulfilling its promises it made my skin worse and this has also happened to a few people that have tried the Cetaphil skincare. I don’t understand the fuss, especially since it not living up to its name.
Do not bother buying or even glancing at it, opt for a skincare where you will obtain value for your money and actually help with your skin condition.
