I love this face wash. I have been using it for a few years and it really helped my skin. It’s very gentle but helps to get rid of oil. It’s not too expensive either. I am going to continue to buy this, and I would recommend to anyone with oily skin.

I feel like this product does a great job at controlling my oil skin during the day, but I wouldn't vouch for this product as a cleanser.. It doesn't feel like it is doing any cleaning.. it could be because of the texture (foam).
I recommend using this product in the morning and definitely not at night because you won't feel like you cleaned your face. Also, if you break out before your menstrual cycle, I feel like this product does a great job at keeping those acne at bay.

I fell in love with the gentleness of this foaming face wash it feels so silky on your face as you massage it in and can be used twice a day while its on the pricey side the size and effectiveness more than make up for that. Excellent for those with Oily acne prone skin and keeps your oil production balanced. Am stocking up on this as there was some difficulty finding this

With the change in dry fall weather in Southern California my oily skin has kicked into overdrive! I've been using this foam wash every morning, along with the Oil Control moisturizer, before applying my make up and I think it's really made a difference in controlling my oily skin. While it's not "cured" it my natural oils have not been breaking down my makeup as quickly! However, it's not overly drying which is fantastic since that makes my skin worse.

My dermatoligist just gave me a sample of this around a week ago for my acne. In just a short week, it has cleared up my acne quite nicely but it dries out my skin tremendously. I have combo skin and it helps with the oil on the oily parts of my skin but the areas where I am dry, near the acne prone areas, it dries me out so much that no amount of moisturizer helps. But if you have oily skin everywhere, I'm sure this would be a great product!

Best fash wash EVER. I have extremely oily skin, like it looks like I'm sweating after an hour... I've tried every face wash in the books to try and control the oil and cetaphil oil control is the only thing that has done the job and it works fast! It's a bit pricey (around $16 for a small bottle) but it's absolutely worth it. I use to wash my face 3 times a day, but only need to once in the morning and I'm good to go for the day :)

I have really acne prone skin and this product paired with the oil control moisturizer has saved me. My dermatologist recommended this to me when I started using tretinoin. I no longer use the tretinoin but I have continued using these products. 

I feel like this really washes my face without over drying or  being harsh on my sensitive skin. 
Great price point and great value.

My dermatologist recommended me to this cleaner. I have cystic acne and i have fought this for 17 years. This is the only facewash that I would spend the last of my money on. It has no fragrances or anything that upsets my face. It could be a little cheaper price wise. But I can get it at walmart so that works for me!! Cetaphil DermaControl Oil Control Foam Wash

I have very oily skin when I wake up and use oil control wash now only to have oily skin again after lunch. How well / long does this control oil compared to other leading brands?
