Hi guys! It’s finals week again, and there will no new posts after this one for the whole week next week. They will return to normal after next week 🙂
Today’s post is on my favourite cleanser of the moment. I was sent a tiny sample (2 weeks worth of product) of the Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser to try out, and I loved it so much I went out and bought two 125ml bottles. I got a great deal at Guardian’s which was RM33 for two bottles. The normal price for these are a lot higher, but they’re having a sampling program for all my Malaysian and Singaporean readers, where they’ll send you a free sample, so you can try it out before spending the money on it.

You can purchase Cetaphil at all major drugstores/pharmacies. In Malaysia, I found mine at Guardian, and I’ve also seen it at Watsons and Caring Pharmacy.
There are 3 varieties of cleansers by Cetaphil – the Gentle Skin Cleanser (this one), Oily Skin Cleanser, and the Cleansing Bar. So what’s cool about this Gentle Skin Cleanser is that it can be used on your face and also your body as a body cleanser. This product is also soap-free, and fragrance-free!
The consistency of this cleanser is somewhat thin – it is a runny, milky liquid. You really don’t need much product, I use just slightly more than in my picture above and it covers my entire face. I use this twice a day – once during the day and once at night. This is a very gentle cleanser, it doesn’t sting my eye if I accidentally get some in there. After cleansing my face with this, my face feels so smooth and refreshed. It doesn’t give you that “extremely clean” drying feeling to your skin.
So the main reason why I purchased two new bottles right after the 2 week sample ran out was because I decided my face couldn’t live without it (of course I’m exaggerating, but you get what I mean.. haha). Just after two weeks, I realised that my skin has never felt or looked better. I have a lot of breakouts in my forehead area, and after using this it smoothed it out quite a bit. It was a pretty noticeable difference – even my mum and sister realised it!
I always had this mindset that gentle cleanser wouldn’t clean my face enough, but I guess I was proven wrong. This Cetaphil Sensitive Gentle Cleanser has cleaned my face so much better and my skin has been loving it so much. It also doesn’t dry out my skin, so it feels a lot smoother now.
So, remember to grab yourself some free samples and try it out – hopefully your skin will love it as much as mine does!
Thanks for reading, xoxo
