Honest reviews


Excellent soap

It’s bitterly cold and dry this winter – no news, I know – and I was noticing that after showers I was feeling even more itchy and dry than usual. I use Cetaphil liquid soap to wash my face, Cetaphil lotion for moisturizing face and body – so I thought I’d give the bar soap a try in the shower before I dried up and vanished from the face of the earth before Spring. I bought it, I used it, have used it for a week now, and it’s made a big difference in how comfortable my skin feels. I’m very happy I finally tried the bar soap, and I have no plans of switching back to my previous soap (Ivory) in bath, shower, or next to the sink for handwashing. Great brand, Cetaphil, and I’ve no qualms at all at recommending it to anyone and everyone. Also: this Cetaphil bar soap, fragrance wise, is either fragrance free or if it does have added fragrance, I can’t discern anything and I’m super sensitive to fragrances, so if you prefer no fragrance in your soap for whatever reason, you can rest assured that this soap won’t bother you in that regard, either.

Good for Many Skin Conditions

Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar is a non-alkaline, non-soap bar that its makers claim to be non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, and free of harsh detergents that might dry or irritate the skin. The makers also state it can be used for facial or full body cleaning, and is designed for dry, sensitive skin to moisturize as it cleans. Its active ingredient, they state, is Triclosan; it is a neutral pH formulation that will leave no residue. The manufacturers further claim that it is good for many skin conditions, such as eczema, and is as mild as the mildest bar cleanser. It is manufactured by Galderma Laboratories, major benefactor of the Dermatology Foundation helping to fund dermatology research.This bar has worked very nicely for me. I turned to it after messing up my hands by use of a perfumed soap bar: mind you, I know/knew better than to use perfumed soap, which has always caused my hands to get red, raw, and covered with rash. But when a bar of perfumed soap comes as a gift from someone of whom I’m fond, I can’t resist it. So, anyway, after a few weeks’ use of the Cetaphil bar, my hands are looking and feeling much better, not nearly as red, sore and painful. You might give it a try if you find yourself in a similar situation.
