Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser Review

(Last Updated On: August 1, 2019)

When it comes to my daily skin cleansers, I rarely switch to different ones. But if something is good enough to attract my attention, I make sure to try it. One such cleanser I recently tried is the Cetaphil Cleanser. I had heard a lot of good things about this one and how it is amazing for sensitive skin but never really tried it until my dermatologist suggested it to me. Read on to know how well this cleanser performs.

My Experience: I got this cleanser because my doctor suggested it to me. It is a very gentle face wash and doesn’t lather on the skin much. I’ve been using it for a month now and I really like it.

At first I thought that this face wash won’t be able to cleanse my face very nicely as it is summer time and my face does get a bit oily and also accumulates dirt.

But to my surprise it cleanses my face very nicely and leaves it squeaky clean just like my other face wash and also keeps it soft and healthy.

It has also helped me to prevent and keep my skin clean from any kind of break outs and to be honest, I’ve been breaking out a lot in summers for some reason.

This will be great for sensitive skin as sensitive skin is allergic to harsh chemicals but it doesn’t have any and their skin’s PH balance will also be maintained.

Although I don’t have sensitive skin but since this is a body cleanser as well, I tried it on my underarms as they are very sensitive and if anything irritates my skin in that area, it causes a lot of darkening.

But this cleanser really took care of them as well and even though it’s only area I sweat a lot, the cleanser was able to leave my underarms squeaky clean. So I can definitely say that this cleanser is good for all skin types.


● Great for all skin types
● Doesn’t dry out the skin
● No harsh chemicals
● Cleanses skin thoroughly
● Fragrance free
● Maintains skin’s PH balance
● Affordable
● Travel friendly


● Doesn’t lather much

Jhalli Diva Verdict: 4.5/5

Will I Repurchase?

Yes! I would definitely purchase this cleanser. It works great for my skin and doesn’t make my skin dry at all. It also takes care of my skin concerns and is very gentle on it.

Do I Recommend?

Yes, I do recommend this cleanser if you have sensitive skin or even if you are looking for something with less chemicals. This is perfect for that and won’t lead to any skin reactions.

Overall Summary: I had a mindset that if a cleanser doesn’t lather much, it probably isn’t cleaning my skin but when I purchased this cleanser, I was totally proved wrong as this worked really well for my skin and it got rid of all the dirt and grime on my face.

It also maintains my skin texture and keeps it healthy. This cleanser is an all year round cleanser and can be used any time of the season. So do get your hands on this if you wanna try it.
