Honest reviews


Miracle soap for eczema and psoriasis sufferers!

I cannot express my gratitude for this soap. I’ve lived with eczema and psoriasis for the last 10 years. After trying Dial Gold antibacterial soap, I avoided antibacterial soaps altogether because I didn’t like the way it dried out my skin. I was skeptical of Cetaphil, but decided to give it a try based on all the glowing reviews. It’s been 3 months since I started using this soap and my skin has cleared up considerably. I haven’t gone this long with clear skin for years. I don’t know what is in this soap, but I will say it’s close to a miracle for those of us with skin problems. I used to be exclusive to Aveeno Skin Relief Body Wash (fragrance free), but I’ve now switched entirely to Cetaphil. This soap does not dry out your skin like other antibacterial soaps. In fact, it is so gentle that you can’t even tell it’s antibacterial. It’s more pricey, but definitely worth it. I just hope they never discontinue manufacturing this wonderful product.

Cetaphil – the optimum choice for my problem skin!

Cetaphil Antibacterial Gentle Cleansing Bar is indeed the optimum choice for my problem skin.This pH balance non-soap cleansing bar is a super gentle all over body wash. I even use it on my face in lieu of shaving cream – it’s that soothing! The antibacterial ingredient – triclosan, also helps protect my freshly shaved face.CONS:This stuff’s priceyCetaphil Antibacterial Cleansing Bar is very soft and it melts away quickly once it’s under the shower stream.TIP: To reduce wastage of this pricey cleansing bar, don’t lather up under the shower, lather up your washcloth instead and store your Cetaphil Cleansing Bar away from the shower (I keep mine in a covered soap dish).This product offers a few buying choices. You can buy Cetaphil Antibacterial Cleansing Bars singly, or you can save some money by buying the six packs using Amazon or other sellers. You can even get Cetaphil six packs using Amazon ‘Subscribe & Save’. Great! :))

Cetaphil Cleansing Bar

My kids have eczema. I was walking around Walmart looking at soap section. A woman saw my kids and told me to use Cetaphil soap/body wash followed by Cetaphil cream. My kids are 9 and 10. I ask them how their skin felt. The 9 year old said her skin felt softer and smoother. The 10 years shares the same opinion. I felt there skin was softer too.

The best

I get really dry skin in the winter, but that problem has simply gone away after starting to use this soap. It’s pricey if you buy one bar at a time but the 6 pack on Amazon is hard to beat. I also use the cleanser on my face-Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, 16-Ounce Bottles (Pack of 2)–there’s so much research out there that says there’s no need to spend a fortune on expensive skin care products so I don’t!

Great for any skin type for any age for any one. I was told to use this by dermatologist for my baby she is 5 and still using it worth it for sensitive skin

Does nothing for me

Am I the only one this soap does nothing for ? I’ve had acne for years and I’ve used this soap many times because it’s such a popular anti bacterial soap but truth is, it’s never helped my acne whatsoever. I gave it two stars because I don’t think it makes my skin worse but it definitely doesn’t make it better.

There is nothing like a shower…. and this product makes the experience last so much longer even when you have left the water. The aroma and the clean feeling linger long after the shower. I will reorder this item again for sure!

Gest Soap For Eczema

Cetaphil is simply the best soap for Eczema and/or sensitive skin. I hate that fact that is expensive but I am always coming back to buy more. Amazon has the best price I have found anywhere.

Not good for me…

I am very glad that this soap works well for many people, me not so much. I had break outs where I never did before. Now I am stuck with many bars of soap and nothing to do with them.

Great for sensitive skin

This is a great product at a great price. I use this because I have sensitive skin and this takes care of it. My hubby was having a problem with a rash and used this for a couple days and it went away. Love this product.

Best soap for sensitive skin

Only soap I use on my face which is very sensitive. Long lasting, good cleansing, gentle and non irritating, like a lot

Great for eczema!

For those with eczema or other skin conditions, this cleanser is fantastic. It’s not a soap, as it doesn’t have all the chemicals or fragrances that bar soaps have. The cleansing bar doesn’t make as many suds, but it does the job. I suffer from eczema, on both my hands and feet. After trying cortizone creams on the areas with eczema, I realized that the creams were not doing anything for them. Once one area was healing, another area would start to get dry and itchy. Ever since I started using this soap, the occurrence of my eczema has decreased dramatically. I have not had any flare-ups in about a month! As long as I use this soap, my skin stays moisturized and there is no eczema. I strongly recommend it for people that are prone to certain skin conditions, especially those that suffer from dry, itchy skin. This cleanser does the trick!

Gentle cleansing

I’m old school and still like bar soap even for my face. This cleans gently and never leaves my skin feeling tight. At age 63, I want to be very careful not to dry my skin with anything harsh. This does the trick.
