Cetaphil may be one of the least glam skincare ranges with its no nonsense, straight from the chemists’ packaging. But it’s also one of those heritage brands with a cult status for its reliable, budget-friendly skincare. The multi award-winning brand offers products for both oily and dry skin, and I took a face first dive into their offerings for dry skin.
Cetaphil dry skin range overview
Cetpahil Gentle Skin Cleanser (236ml, RRP £8.99) This is the best-seller of the range. This cleaner’s USP is that you don’t need water to use it, making it perfect for festivals, camping or treks through the desert. It can be used for face and body, so I’ve been using it in the shower. It’s a good all rounder, gentle enough that even babies can use it.
Cetaphil Gentle Foaming Cleanser (236ml £10.99) This fragrance free cleanser works via a rich, non-drying lather. I found that it didn’t completely remove all of my make up, so I would use this as part of a double cleanse. Foam cleansers can be drying but I didn’t find that that was the case here.
Cetaphil Daily Defence Moisturiser SPF 50+ (50g RRP £12.99) I’ve been using this a lot over the last few sunny weeks. It’s a richer formula than I’m used to, but then it does do double duty as a moisturiser and a sun screen in one. There’s a bit of a white cast as it applies, but that disappears within a few minutes. A good one to take on holiday or any time you’re travelling light. I found it lasted all day and protected my face well.
Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion (236ml £8.99) This is a good basic moisturiser that’s much lighter in consistency than the added SPF version. Lightweight, sinks in fast and suitable for sensitive skin.
Cetaphil Rich Night Cream (50g £7.99) As the name suggests, this is a rich, intensive cream designed to nourish the skin overnight. Suitable for a wide range of skin types, from troubled to mature. It feels pretty silky on the skin and is fragrance free.
Cetaphil dry skin range is very widely available online. Most of these products are available at Boots and Superdrug, or you can pick them up with your shopping at Sainsburys or Amazon. For more information check out the Cetaphil website.
