The Mildest of Them All : Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

In the skincare markets out there, it can be quite daunting in finding a range that suits you and your lifestyle. Especially since the terrible skin rash breakout I had a few years back, I’ve been wary about what cleansers and moisturisers that I use. When your skin feels like its irritated as though it’s on fire, you want to go back to the most simple and basic skincare routine…and I found just that in the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser.The Mildest of Them All : Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser
What really makes this such a keeper is that due to its formulation, the wash is extremely mild and gentle on skin. Taking a look at the ingredients list, you’ll see it’s a no-frills list that only keeps the best of moisturizing goodness, comprising of emollients like Cetyl Alcohol and Stearyl Alcohol, as well as Propylene Glycol, a humectant which helps to lock in hydration , thus keeping skin nourished throughout the day.The Mildest of Them All : Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser
The Gentle Skin Cleanser comes in a fairly large pump bottle, which gives great value given the affordable price tag. Perhaps another reason why it’s in a larger quantity is since it’s so mild on skin, you can actually use it for both face AND body! A single pump actually dispenses a sufficient amount of the translucent whitish cleanser, which has a nice lotion consistency.

And I discovered something interesting! On a particular day, I had accidentally applied the cleanser onto my still made-up face. When I tried using a tissue to wipe, I found that the makeup came off easily! Henceforth, I‘ve since used this as a daily remover-cum-cleanser for my daily light makeup. I would however recommend using a separate makeup remover first to remove heavier makeup (especially those with water or smudge-proof formulations).

One thing I noticed is that it does not lather much, perhaps due to the relatively low levels of SLS, or Sodium Laureth Sulphate- which helps to deeply clean and remove the impurities in skin. Formulations that create foam lather can sometimes be the cause for skin irritation. Thankfully, I did not experience any tightness after rinsing; instead my skin felt soft and supple even for areas with my eczema rash!
