Cetaphil OS - Cleanser For Oily Skin

A big warm hug for all my lovely readers and a very happy new year :)

I was thinking about what should be the first product to be reviewed in the first month of the new year, then I thought what can be better than my all time favorite product, which is also my skin's constant companion. O yes, it is none other than "Cetaphil Cleanser". So, here I am with the review of my darling cleanser. :)

Cetaphil OS - Cleanser For Oily Skin

What the brand says:

Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser provides effective cleansing for combination, oily or blemished skin. It's gentle foaming action removes oil, dirt, skin debris and makeup without leaving your skin dry and, importantly, without the tightness that results from soap-based cleansers. That’s because it is specially formulated to remove oil without affecting the skin barrier. (Skin acts as a barrier, keeping moisture in so it is important for a cleanser to work without compromising the skin barrier.) Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser does not clog pores and can be used in conjunction with acne medication.

Directions to use:
 Take small amount of cleanser and massage a small amount onto wet skin. Rinse with water.

Cetaphil cleanser comes in a white plastic bottle with a flip cap. As you can see in the pics.

My Views on Cetaphil - Cleanser For Oily Skin :

This is the best in the world for oily skin beauties. You can't fail with this. It is my HG skin cleanser. I am repurchasing it since last 3 years and it never runs out of stock from my shelf. I absolutely love this Cetaphil cleanser.

I have tried and used many many face washes for my oily acne prone skin, almost all drugstore brands which claim to be great for oily skin. I quite like 2-3 of them. Yes, only 2-3 out of all that herd. All rest fail for me. But I will not name them here, a separate post for that ;).

Now, coming to the praises and qualities of Cetaphil cleanser for oily skin, it comes in a white opaque bottle with a flip open cap and is perfectly travel friendly, no spills, no leakages. 

The cleanser is transparent, a little quantity, a single drop is required for whole face and hence, it lasts a good time. It removes all sort of makeup easily. But you need an eye and lip makeup remover separately, if you have those matt lip stains on lips and an intensive eye makeup on eyes. Else it works perfectly on its own.
It lathers well and washes off completely easily, cleansing the face and leaving the skin squeaky clean. The biggest pro is that it works amazingly well for oily skin in all weathers, winters and summers and especially those humid rainy days, all equally and perfectly. Again, one great pro, not only it doesn't cause any breakout, but it further reduces the occurrence too.

No problem to sensitive noses, it is fragrance free. And it is soap free too. A full thumbs up from me.
