Cetaphil :)

I recently teamed with BlogHer to do a review on Cetaphil products! The best part about this is that we had already been using Cetaphil!

I’ve always had sensitive skin, therefore…..
I don’t use a lot of products for very long. I would always end up going back to Cetaphil products. It just seemed like they kept my skin clean and moisturized the best. I also like that they don’t have any smell. I like smell, but I can’t do it all too often.

I remember years and years ago, when I was going to the dermatologist quite a bit, he recommended that I use Cetaphil products. I never really had many breakouts of any kind, but more so irritation. It just so happens that Cetaphil products are the only brand recommended by more than 90% of dermatologists across all four major categories: body cleansers/body washes, facial cleansers, general body moisturizers, and facial moisturizers.

Since the Cetaphil® Gentle Skin Cleanser is a little bit thicker, I don’t use it every time I wash my face. Once it feels moisturized, I usually do every other day. I really feel like it cleans and gives the moisture without me necessarily having to use another moisturizing product.

I use Cetaphil® Moisturizing Cream on my body and I really feel like it gives great moisture and locks into my skin, if that makes sense. I think it definitely helps itchy and/or dry skin. I can also tell I use more in the winter time!

With Knox & Sloane, my goal was to be as natural as possible. Knox was having skin issues and just wasn’t getting much relief from anything. His pediatrician and dermatologist also recommended switching him to Cetaphil® Gentle Skin Cleanser and Cetaphil® Moisturizing Cream. We’ve now been using both for about six months.

They don’t seem to have very dry skin, but I always keep some in the basket in the living room in case their legs are feeling dry or my hands are!

They seem to be doing great with both!

Knox’s dermatologist definitely thinks that he may have some form of eczema and thankfully believes Cetaphil products will help eczema-prone skin.

Upon researching on Cetaphil brand’s website, I discovered that Cetaphil products are the brand of cleansers and moisturizers that both dermatologists and pediatricians are most likely to recommend often. I think this shows that most people get the results they are looking for when using them, so that’s reassuring in a sense as well!

    I wash my face in the evening and moisturize really well so it doesn't get dry. Generally, I use a natural oil cleanser; however, I have been known to use something to clear my pores from time to time.

    For moisture, I use Mary Kay. It's not thick and it doesn't break my skin out.

  2. says

    My face is pretty oily so I usually just wash at night and in the morning, no extra moisturizer. For my skin (which is super dry, go figure) I use a cocoa butter lotion twice a day.

  3. says

    I'm a Cetaphil user too! Love their moisturizer, though I need to try some of their other products.

    For the winter, I switched my daughter to Eucerin. I noticed her little knees getting dry about the time she started crawling and since I started Eucerin, it's been much better. I do miss the Johnson and Johnson's baby lotion smell though!

    Thanks for hosting!

  4. says

    Cetaphil cleansing bar is always my go to face wash and has been since junior high. Palmer's cocoa butter is my favorite for body lotion. Burt's Bees lip balm is a year round essential for my lips!

  5. says

    My winter strategy is to drink a LOT of water and moisterize…even when I don't feel dry…when your skin is dry – you're already fighting a battle! I also use cetaphil per the recommendation of my dermatologist.

  6. says

    I'm a cetaphil user as well! I wash my face morning and at night with cetaphil and also use their moisturizer. I have super dry skin and it seems to do wonders!

  7. says

    I just wash my face in the shower every morning and put some Bath and Body Works body cream on my face and I'm set for the day. Luckily, I've been blessed with skin that doesn't get too oily, so it's pretty low maintenance. :)

  8. says

    I love Cetaphil, and use it daily. It was also recommended by my dermatologist, along with the orange Neutrogena wash…so, that's all I do! Keeps my sensitive skin smooth, moisturized and blemish free.

  9. says

    For my winter skin care routine, I wash my face with Coconut Oil and moisturize morning and night! The Coconut Oil is a new thing for me and kind of sounds weird but it has actually cleared up my skin and moisturizes it well but not too much!

  10. says

    I just started using the Mary Kay Timewise system, and I am loving it so far. I love the night solution with the little microbeads that burst when you apply it. My face gets really dry after I cleanse, so I have to have a good moisturizer.

  11. says

    My aunt is a dermatologist and recommended cetaphil for me to use- I love the cream and use it every time I shower. I've even gone as far as to mix with a little self tanner when I wanted some color and it's great!

  12. says

    I use Clinique take the day off for my eyes, cetaphil bar for my face, and a Lancôme moisturizer that's really
    Light. I love cetaphil products though and I use the lotion in the winter months all the time!

  13. says

    I love Cetaphil, I used it on recommendation from my daughters pediatrician & my mom, when my little girl was in her toddler stage she had plenty of skin irritations & she would be given creams & they worked okay but it kept coming back. Cetaphil helped keep her skin from breaking out as bad & it gave her a break from the itchiness.

  14. says

    Gah I wish I had a winter skin care strategy. I am sooo lazy at it and generally don't even use lotion until I start flaking and looking all alligator like. Gross I know.

  15. says

    I use Clinique products year-round, but I have very dry skin so I add some extra moisturizer during the winter. Lately I've been using Ponds before going to bed, and it works pretty well. But I'm always up for trying new products so I'll give Cetaphil a shot. Thanks!!

  16. says

    My strategy is to drink lots of water and moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! I also try to balance out all the holiday goodies with fresh fruits and veggies. When I eat a cleaner diet, my skin always looks better. Love Cetaphil as well – I've used it since my teenage years!

  17. says

    I LOVE Cetaphil's Moisturizing Cream. I've been using it for years and feel like it does a great job keeping my skin moisturized all day especially in the winter months! When my son was born 3 years ago, I bought the popular brand of baby lotions, but I felt like it just didn't keep his skin moisturized at all so I decided to start using Cetaphil's Moisturizing Cream on him. A lot of people comment on how soft and smooth his skin is. My daughter, now 19 months, has only ever used Cetaphil.

  18. says

    I use the same products in winter as other seasons, except I use a lot more, and dry my skin more thoroughly. Cetaphil sounds like a good moisturizer for me, frgrance free and has spf. Thanks for the review and giveaway.

    I don't skimp on SPF just because there's less sunlight and I moisturize twice a day-once in the morning and once before bed. I also use a milk & honey lip balm to keep my lips soft!

  20. says

    I know I should not take such long and hot showers in the winter, but I just can't help myself so I make sure to use moisturizing soaps and body washes and then I slather on moisturizer right after I get out of the shower

  21. says

    My winter skin care strategy is to use a good moisturizing cream in the morning and before bed that's why I'll shop for this Cetaphil skin care products after reading your review, I want to save money and have a better skin! Thanks for this review and giveaway!


  22. says

    I have to wash my face everyday and moisturizer thoroughly on a daily basis. If I don't, my skin gets so dry. Another important thing is to moisturize your lips!

  23. says

    I just started the "Yes To" brand. I am pregnant and know that I do not need any harmful chemicals and found it at Target. I never thought of Cetaphil until your post. I use their lotion in the winter for my dry skin. Once I run out of my face wash looks like I'm going to have to buy some Cetaphil.

  24. says

    My daughter has eczema and has since she was a few months old. Her pediatrician years ago suggested that we use Cetaphil and Eucerin lotion and that's what I use on her skin I try to make sure she gets it done 2x a day, but she is 10 years old and sometime we seem to forget. Although, her skin hasn't completely healed from the eczema the lotions make a huge difference. The winter months are the worst for her dry skin.

  25. says

    I have extremely sensitive skin. Every dermatologist I've seen has recommend Cetaphil. I love there products, especially the moisturizer. It's really refreshing when there is a quality product that is recommended by doctors and it's affordable.

  26. says

    I use Olive Oil on my face morning and night, followed by a nice warm washcloth rinse. My skin is never oily and always smooth. I have sensitive skin and dry and this seems to work and help keep the wrinkles down.

  27. says

    I agree with many responders – dermatologists always recommend Cetaphil. I have eczema on my arms and occasional acne on my face. Since I was ~14 various dermatologists have told me to use Cetaphil all over and it works. For cleansing my face, I use Aqua Glycolic every morning and night. I always moisturize with Cetaphil, twice a day.

  28. says

    My strategy is to pretty much leave my face-skin as alone as possible. I wash it once a day with "Acne Free" and lotion it every other day. As for the rest of my body I'm a vaseline brand lotion girl myself. I have tried Cetaphil but I feel like I am always greasy after I use it.

  29. says

    MY dermatologist recommended CeraVe and I have really liked the cleansing lotion and moisturizing lotion. I am always open to trying new products however.

  30. says

    My winter skin care strategy is to use lots of moisturizer, especially after shower and washing dishes. My son has very dry skin! I'll have to try Cetaphil. I'm sure it'll help him a lot.

  31. says

    I avoid soap when possible and use Aquaphor regularly on extra dry spots. For the face I like the Philosophy skin line. I drink lots of water and try to get in the sun when it's out!

  32. says

    Living in MN, dry skin in the winter is a given. Both of my kids had corpus molluscum (sp?) so we try to lather up after every bath. I haven't found one perfect lotion so we tend to mix it up a bit.

  33. says

    I pretty much use the same skin-care routine for my face year-round: I use Cetaphil cleanser and moisturizer (ever since my dermatologist recommended it!). During the winter, my hands bother me more, so I use more (or better) hand and body lotion.

  34. says

    My wintercare strategy is to use spf and a good non irritating moisturizer. I love that this one is fragrance free! My son has allergies and this might work great for him too!

    My winter skin care regimen is exactly like my skin care regimen any other time of year, with two notable exceptions: I run a humidifier at night and I use hand cream in stead of lotion.

  36. says

    In the winter my strategy is a gentle AM/PM cleaners and a light AM moisturizer. Before bed I use and intensive night time moisturizer.

    I wash my face and put a heavy moisturizer on at night and a light one on during the day. I don't wash my face in the morning, just at night.
