My Experience with Cetaphil OS Cleanser:

My skin type: Oily to combination / combination.

After using the Cetaphil moisturiser for a very long time, I am now trying out their non-comedogenic oily skin cleanser. This cleanser was a part of my Clickoncare haul which I did in October, this year. I have been using it since then and loving it to the core!

The texture is clear gel type & quite runny, so be cautious while dispensing the product. Since the cleanser doesn’t create much foam while cleansing the face, I end up taking ample amount of it all the time :D  Actually, I have a thing for the foamy products, much leather means effective cleansing that’s what my mind signals to me always!

Anyway, the product says, it is pH balanced and non-drying. So true to its claim, it actually cleanses gently all the surface oils, dirt and impurities without stripping natural oils off my skin! Upon application, it releases a faint medicinal smell which is not bothersome at all. It is gentle yet effective cleanser which gives me a squeaky clean skin after every use. Post usage, it didn’t dry out my skin rather imparts a clean and refreshed look.

I took this cleanser along with me on my last trip to Orissa where the temperature was much higher than Pune city. As a result, my skin became too much oily, but the continuous usage of this Cetaphil cleanser kept the oiliness at bay. Also, it didn’t irritate my sensitive skin and did help control the acnes from further breaking out! Since it is gentle I normally use it in the morning and at the night before hitting the bed.

Sometimes, I take the copious amount of this cleanser on a cotton swab and directly wipe off my face. Noticed, in this way it works great in removing my light makeup (1layer foundation+ 1 layer Face powder+ blush (rare) + lipstick) but it failed to remove eye makeup (kajal/mascara)! However, girls, it is not that effective in cleansing heavy duty makeup, so make sure you use separate makeup remover for this purpose.

Plus Points:

  • Gentle on skin
  • Great for combination and acne prone skin
  • pH balanced
  • Doesn’t dry out the skin
  • Makes skin clean and refreshed
  • A little amount goes a long way if you are not foam-ey freak
  • Doesn’t irritate sensitive skin
  • Keeps oiliness away for a good period of time
  • Non-comedogenic that means it will not block the skin pores!
  • Help control acnes
  • Nice smell
  • Travel-friendly
  • Budget friendly
  • Online and offline availability

Minus Point:

  • Contain SLS 
  • Not efficient in deep-cleansing & removing heavy duty makeup
  • Not great for extremely oily skin beauties in summers.

Rating: 4.8


This cleanser has a mild and gentle formula which cleanses all the dirt and grimes efficiently without leaving the skin feeling stripped. Though, the ingredient list is not that tempting but I don’t regret buying it!

In a nutshell, it works great for my combination skin and if you are looking for a budget-friendly good cleanser for oily, acne-prone skin, then this product is worthy the try.
