Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser cleanse, moisturise and is gentle on skin. This cleanser will not strip the natural protective oils or emollient and disturb the natural PH's balance. I love the pleasantly tight (surprisingly cleanser that leave slight tight feeling is considered as good) after a wash with Cetaphil. I also like the fact that Cetaphil Cleanser can be used with and without water. Which means, I can massage my skin with adequate amount of Cetaphil cleanser and wipe it off with tissue or a piece of cloth. No rinse needed.
Although, it's a cleanser and according to their website, Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser can be acting as mild makeup remover. Seriously, I doubt so. I've seen plenty of reviews on it's makeup removing ability. So far, nothing fantastic came out. I have my DOVE Cleansing Foam, which I bought from Japan months ago hence I do not use Cetaphil to cleans up any makeup. Unless I have only sunscreen without a single trace of makeup.
