  • "I have used the  [product:cetaphil-antibacterial-gentle-cleansing-bar] for years now as the main staple in my skin care regimen. I've been told by dermatologists my whole life to use this, and they know what they're talking about. This product leaves my face feeling super clean without feeling like it's been stripped. It doesn't have any scent so it doesn't irritate my face or break it out. The very few times I've tried to test out different face washes, I immediately break out and come back to this every time. Take my advice and buy this if you're looking for the perfect product in skin care for fresh, clean skin!" in 9 reviews

This is the best and only thing I can use to wash my body. I have a condition called Hidradenitis Suppurativa and this is what my Dermatologist recommended. It’s the only thing that keeps it under control. Each bar lasts a while and the price is great. This doesn’t dry out my skin, but gives the antibacterial properties that I need in a cleanser. I’ve found that all Cetaphil products are great for sensitive skin also!

I am a diabetic and have itchiness and dryness at times, which normally that is not my skin. I do have sensitive skin and cannot just use any soaps. This Cetaphil Antibacterial has help cleanse my skin without over drying and I feel the freshness. I especially like the way my feet and arms feel after use. No residue left behind also.

We make sure we have a few of these in stock for our bathroom.  We like taking it to travel since it's non liquid.  Gentle on skin.  Feels good on skin.  Use it on the face, hand and body.  It's safe to always have.  Recommend for everyone including those with sensitive and problematic skin.

The best gentle cleanser on the market, and at an affordable price. I have tried every cleanser out there and this one is by far the best. It actually gets your makeup off, doesn't irritate or tighten my skin, and leaves it feeling clean and conditioned. Will continue to buy for the rest of my life. A cult classic.

I received a small sample version of this bar. It is a nice simple cleansing bar. It feels pretty gentle and is probably good for sensitive skin. I use this once in the morning and night. The price seems approriate for what you are getting. probably

I like this product, but I love this product as a liquid.

I used this product regularly as a teenager. It always left my face feeling fresh and clean.

Pricey when you use a lot of it, and regularly as a teenager. But now that I'm a bit older I don't think of the price point being so bad anymore.

This is my go to face cleanser. I started using it a few years ago. And won't use anything else. My face has cleared up so much since I've started using this. It doesn't dry out my face horribly. But I always use a moisturizer anyway. It's very affordable and lasts a long time.

I prefer buying the three pack instead of the single because you don save some money. As far as the cleansing bar, I absolutely love it!! I use it in the shower to wa ah off my makeup and then I also use it on my body. They are gentle enough that they will not cause any breakouts on your body and the scent is great!

I was first told about using the cetaphil antibacterial bars on my face by my dermatologist over ten years ago and have been using it daily ever since. Works wonders for acne prone skin. The best possible face soap ever! Too bad it’s getting harder and harder to find.
