Only thing that cured me of my cystic acne. I have tired everything from oil cleansing method (don't do it), apple cider, baking soda, spas, medical treatment, salicylic acid, benzoic acids, african black soap, shea butter, etc etc etc.

The only thing that worked for 2 years was Ortho tri-cyclin birth controls. I decided that I was going to stop taking it and BAM my acne came out.

(I also have PCOS - which tends to cause cystic acne).

I saw this at wal mart and it was like 2-4$ per bar and I was thinking, what do I have to lose? After a week, I noticed I stopped having massive "new" cystic acne break out. It look months for me to heal. I still occasionally will get a few (small) pimples and maybe 1 cystic acne per month (I zap that with 10% benzoic acid). Seriously. I have tired everything. I'm also a medical student so I literally... have tried everything.

I use this with their spf 15 lotion. I do not deviate from this routine - ever. I'm still healing but here is a picture from August and now (February) in order. They are not taken every month - just randomly through this time period.

I have only 1 concern - that I'm encouraging antibacterial strains of bacterial to grow on my face and they will one day be resistant. I'm planning to let my face heal completely - then switching over to cetaphil cleansing bar (without antibacterial agents). I will update how that goes.

But anyone who has acne... should first try to clear up their acne before trying anything else (ie. microdermabrasion should ONLY be done after you deal with active acne).

I have terrible skin - eczema AND acne. This is really the best and only cleanser I can use. It is great for both face and body - my skin is extremely oily on the face and extremely dry everywhere else. This cleanses really well, getting all the excess oil off my face, yet never dries too much. If I use anything else, even for a day, I find that my acne flares up. My skin in dry areas becomes tight and scaly with other cleansers.

I'm not really a fan of Triclosan, either, but I've been using this for years with no apparent adverse effects. According to MD Consult, Triclosan is effective against a variety of bacteria, is popular in healthcare settings, and the only adverse effect listed is possible irritation in some people. It appears that concerns about microbial resistance were possible in theory, but research has shown it is not significant for Triclosan.

Prior to my dermatologist recommending it for my breakouts I had never used Cetaphil. The idea of using a bar soap on my face seemed a bit weird but it has really helped clear up my complexion. Out of the box it has a light clean scent and works into a nice lather. It lost one star just because it can be a bit drying, to remedy this I alternate between this bar and the gentle cleanser. You can't beat the price for a face wash as it breaks down to around $3.30 a bar which lasts a really long time. Obviously it does contain triclosan so if you don't have the acne bacteria to kill, i'd go with the gentle cleanser just to avoid any resistant bacteria, but for those like me with both sensitive and acne prone skin, this stuff is a godsend.

PROS: Acne-clearing, not heavily scented, rinses clean, low-cost
CONS: Can be a bit drying for those not oily-prone
TIP: This is a FANTASTIC makeup brush cleanser! Rather than using a harsh astringent or alcohol to kill bacteria this knocks everything out at once, it gets your brushes clean (especially beauty blenders!) AND gets rid of any acne-causing germs.

Let's talk a bit about my face.
1.) My skin has never been awesome, but as I've turned 28, 29 and 30, it became less awesome by the day. (WTF?)
2.) Cancer did me no favors. Stress + cancer stuff + medicine= Bad, bad skin.
3.) This made my skin feel great and prevented my adult break-outs, but at a cost.

- The smell is decent

- It works. I massage this on my face in the morning and rinse and again before bed and rinse. (I spend at least a minute gently massaging it into my face.) It doesn't stop those pesky monthly breakouts, but it has evened my tone and prevented everyday acne since I started using it.

- It's unassuming. I love the Cetaphil brand. They aren't in your face with marketing. They just make good stuff. I appreciate that.

- It's not ridiculous. It's under $4 a bar. I can handle that.

- It's not GOOD for you. Should you use an anti-bacterial face wash? Probably not. (Especially since anti-bacterial agents are making their way into our lakes + water.) I am currently having a karma war with myself over this. It has KNOWN chemicals that aren't good for you. (For a cancer survivor, this terrifies me.) Yet, I haven't found a face wash as good as this one. Source:[...] This one: has a (10) rating and it's $55.00. I'm cheap. $4.00 works.

- I'm afraid that my body + face bacteria are going to someday become resistant and I won't be able to use other bar soaps. It sounds scientific, right?

Overall, it's a decent option for those who have problem skin to try. Make sure to RESEARCH your cosmetics to find out how harmful they are. Knowledge is power.
