Cetaphil: tried and true works best!

Is there ever a time in our lives when we can stop worrying about our skin? We worry about too much sun. We worry about wrinkles. We worry about break-outs. Then we worry about oily skin or dry skin.

Remembering to take care of my skin has become so important to me, but I always get really overwhelmed with all of the options. I was recently given the opportunity to review Cetaphil products, and I was so excited because within the past six months I had become a loyal Cetaphil customer.

I had become so tired of all of the overpriced products. My bathroom cabinet was full of moisturizers, cleansers, toners, sunscreens, night creams, day creams. I think you get the point. It was overwhelming, expensive, and time-consuming. Not to mention confusing. Which is the best? Why do I need all of those products in the first place?

Then one day when I was at the drug store, I spotted the Cetaphil products on the shelf. My dermatologists have always recommended Cetaphil products to me. They don’t break the bank, and most importantly, they’re gentle and effective for the skin.

My new daily routine includes washing my face with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser and then applying Cetaphil Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15 before applying my makeup. The Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is gentle on my skin and fragrance-free. It helps to control oily skin and helps prevent dryness in the winter months.

The temperatures today were in the low 50s, but the sun was shining, and it felt like a gorgeous 70 degree day. But that bright sun can be so tricky when getting ready in the mornings. I love that I can wear sunscreen every day with the Cetaphil Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15 without having that heavy sunscreen smell or the heavy sunscreen texture underneath my makeup. I know that I am protected from the sun’s harmful rays and I can still go about my regular beauty routine.

I love that even in my 30s, I can help prevent wrinkles and help prevent break-outs with two easy, inexpensive steps. I love Cetaphil products enough to use them on my own children. I know that they’re safe and gentle enough for everyone in our family.

    I love cetaphil lotion and have been using the product since I was an oily teenager 16 years ago. This is my go to product at 28 years young, especially now that I live out in the desert.

  2. Sara says

    Of everything I own, my moisturizer is the one thing I can’t do without. I’ve got terribly dry skin so it’s a must. And I usually use it 3-4 times a day. Oddly enough, this is by far the best one I’ve found for my skin.

  3. says

    Cetaphil is my FAVORITE too! I love the thick cream in the jar for my dry, winter skin. I also use the cleanser for my face, and I love that it doesn’t leave it feeling tight and itchy.

  4. Jessica M. says

    I need my moisturizer becuase I have several dry patches on my skin. I have never tried the Cetaphil lotion, but I have been using the facewash for years. Every time I switch to something else I end up going back to Cetaphil.

  5. says

    I couldn’t live without Cetaphil facial cleanser. I’m not just saying that because of the topic of this post. I’ve used Cetaphil for the past 6 years. I tend to have oily skin, but I found that most of the products for oily skin would dry me out too much. Cetaphil works perfectly. I don’t feel like myself in the morning until I’ve washed my face with Cetaphil.

    Does that sound like a commercial or what??? LOL

  6. Emily O. says

    I started using Cetaphil about 5 years ago when I became pregnant with my first son. I wanted something that was more gentle than the Oxy products I had been using since high school. I love the Cetaphil face wash and have used it literally every day since. I haven’t tried the moisturizer but will check it out!

  7. lynn says

    Honestly, I have used Cetaphil for years, and it’s the only cleanser that keeps my skin clear. Everything else is too harsh, especially the often recommended Proactiv. And, Cetaphil is the only product I’ve found where the Target knock off version does not compare! It has to be name brand, and that’s okay, because it’s a product that I believe in!

  8. Mary P. says

    I can’t live without my facial moisturizer! My face feels so dry and my make up does not go on nicely without it!

  9. says

    Rosebud Salve lip balm. I have a tin in my purse, a tine next to my bed, a tin in my make up bag, a tin in the nursery … and I just loaded up on them for stocking stuffers and girls’ gift exchanges. If you need lip balm, you come to me ๐Ÿ˜‰ xo
    Lovely giveaway! thanks for sharing xo

  10. says

    Cetaphil is a standard stocked item around here – ha! My college room-mate got me hooked on it. That was, oh my word, almost 10 years ago…. Now, if I am still loyal to a product this long after having (thankfully) outgrown my college girl budget, that must say something! ;o)

  11. Alison S says

    I can’t live without my SPF facial moisturizer and eye cream. I love anything that hydrates my skin and smells great.

  12. Jenny R. says

    I love my st ives apricot scrub! However, I am a huge beauty products junky, so my moisturizer, mascara, alba chap stick are also contenders, followed by many more!

  13. Jessica R. says

    I do the same skin regimen as you — Cetaphil cleanser and spf moisturizer. Absolutely love them and love that they do a wonderful job for a fraction of the cost of all that other stuff. Couldn’t live without either of them! ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Maria says

    I love cetaphil as it is one of the only creams I use on my toddler who is allergic to dairy, eggs, nuts, shrimp and other minor foods. He had terrible eczema ages 5mnths-8mths before we were able to get it under control with the help of cetaphil. Also Sun is my birthday what a great present this would be!

  15. Kelly S. says

    I have very dry skin. I need to use a moisturizer that isn’t sticky or smelly but that really makes my skin feel dewey soft and smooth.

  16. says

    I’ve always thought about trying Ceptaphil products, but haven’t. Maybe I’ll have to now! I can’t live without my moisturizer. My skin gets so tight and dry without it!

  17. Carrie says

    I absolutely can not live without my Proactiv face wash. It has helped so much with my acne prone skin (from a teenager all the way to my 30s) and I love that fresh, clean feeling!

  18. says

    I actually haven’t found a skin care product I can’t live without…but I’m glad to read your review of Cetaphil because I recently did a makeup lesson with my favorite aesthetician and she highly recommended Cetaphil for me! I guess I will have to pick it up next time I’m out and give it a try! ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. sy says

    I can’t live without a moisturizer that’s fragrance free and has spf 15 or more. I’ve used olay for a long time, would give cetaphil a try. Thanks for the review and giveaway.

    Cetaphil lotion in the tub. My little guy has the craziest skin and NEEDS that stuff. We use it on him like we are frosting a cake! I actually didn’t use it until I had Mason. Now I use it too and my skin thanks me everyday!! haha.

  21. Wild Orchid says

    I couldn’t live without my lipbalm. My lips get so dry – especially in the winter.

    My tinted lip balm! It gives me soft lips plus just enough color to keep me from looking like a zombie every morning. ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Christina Tong says

    Of all skin care products I own, I couldnโ€™t live without moisturizer with SPF or my skin would be very dry. Now I would like to try Cetaphil products after reading your review. Thanks for this review and giveaway.


  24. Sonya Morris says

    I have two products that I cannot live without. One is Burt’s Bees Night Cream and the other is Nivea Lip Balm.

  25. Wanda McHenry says

    I could not live without my daily body lotion. I use several brands depending on what condition my skin is in at that time.

  26. ANGEL JACKLYN says

    Neutrogena Body Scrub, only because I could use it on my face (which I already do, when I have no face wash!)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  27. Natalie J Vandenberghe says

    I consider my cleaner & moisturizer one–because I wouldn’t do/use one without the other! I’ve been using Cetaphil for years. When the dermatologist recommended it, he suggested I not use moisturizer (unless I needed it–which I do!)

  28. says

    I am at a lose right now on skin care products. After having two boys of my own and turning over a birthday milestone, my skin has certainly changed. I am excited to give Cetaphil a chance. Thanks for the coupon!

  29. Laura Jacobson says

    I need a good moisturizer and love that this is fragrance free. Might work for my son with his skin allergies and for me with my dry skin!

  30. Betty C says

    I wouldn’t want to have to give up my Cetaphil cleaner or moisturizer. Those along with my lip balm are my favorite products.

  31. Thomas Murphy says

    I couldnt live without facial moisturizer because my skin gets really dry especially after shaving

  32. says

    I must have a light, non-greasy, non-tacky, organic/natural body lotion. Two of my fav brands are 100% Pure and EO. I use this stuff all year round to keep the scaly skin away!

  33. kourtney says

    Cetaphil! I’ve used this face wash for years and LOVE it! My mom used it and of course got me obsessed with it as well! Your face just feels so soft and clean after using!

  34. Sara says

    I could NOT live without a good moisturizer with SPF. I wear it every day…love the sunshine, but have to protect my skin. I also love Nivea Kiss of Smoothness lip balm with SPF 10. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  35. Jennifer Essad says

    Moisturizer – having moved from Michigan to Florida my skin has changed drastically and w/o using moisturizer I look and feel horrible!

  36. Rachel says

    I could not li without my Cetaphil moisturizer. I have psoriasis, and Cetaphil is THE best for it. A friend recommended it to me about 13 years ago, and I have been using it and recomending it ever since.
