Hey, it's me again! I'm bored so here I am lol. Today, I will be doing another review about a skincare product from one of the brands I truly trust: Cetaphil. This is the first time I've tried Cetaphil Daily Exfoliating Cleanser (₱521/178ml) and I've stumbled upon it when I was browsing through their official shop online.
This isn't exactly like the newest from Cetaphil, but I don't think people are talking about it as much as with the Gentle Skin Cleanser one. That's basically the reason why I decided to try it out in the first place. And you know that each time I try something new, whether it's a pleasant experience or not, I'm just happy to share my thoughts with everyone.
This product right here is infused with skin conditioners and vitamins that gently cleanses and combats dirt, oil, and impurities with the exfoliating micro-fine beads. It promotes a faster skin cell turnover, buffing away dullness and dryness while leaving the skin soft, smooth, and radiant after every wash.
Cetaphil Daily Exfoliating Cleanser claims to be a non-irritating, hypoallergenic and is a gentle facial wash that is suitable for all skin types and is safe for everyday use.
The ingredient list is a bit long with tons of tongue-twister words for me (LOL!). I've noticed a few ingredients which always work great for my skin type such as Glycerin, Panthenol and Vitamin E. There's something that sounds herbal (and alien) to me such as the Bambusa Arundinacea, which I found out later on as the scientific name of Bamboo Extract.
Google says that it is a great natural moisturiser which soothes and smoothes skin while helping it hydrate. It supports and assists the healing of skin and has antibacterial properties to cleanse, purify and detoxify. Forgive me if I have to google them, for I am not very good with ingredients. Hahaha!
The product has a minimalist design just like most Cetaphil products. The only thing I dislike about the packaging is that it comes in this tube type bottle, which I think isn't the best option given that the formula is a bit runny. Sometimes when I open it in haste, the product slid down the opening and spilled. I think a pump would be better.

The formula has thin, gel-type consistency. It's close to clear in opacity, only with very tiny microbeads you'll barely see unless you look closely. I don't know why but the scent reminds me of Lactacyd Baby Bath I've used before when I had skin rashes. It's possible that my mind is playing tricks on me right now, but I really think that they smell so similar.
This cleanser doesn't create a foamy lather which I don't mind. I am used to cleansers that doesn't lather much and I like them better because they don't feel drying at all. I like using it together with the Gentle Skin Cleanser as my primary cleanser then follow it up with the exfoliating one. I don't know if anyone else do this, but I like using both because I felt like my skin is not just cleaner, but also softer.
First thing I noticed when I tried Cetaphil Daily Exfoliating Cleanser for the first time, was the burning sensation on my skin. It was intense and after only a few seconds, I had to wash it off already. It felt like I applied Maxipeel while my skin is already peeling (LOL!). But maybe that was my skin in the process of getting used to the product - which actually turned out to be true. The next few uses felt better. I have been using this product for about a month now (only once a day) and every time I use this cleanser, I still feel some warmness on my skin but it became much more tolerable.
The microbeads on it are non-abrasive - you'll barely feel them, to be honest. Cleanser rinses easily without leaving any residue. I also like how it soften and smoothen my skin every wash. It's an exfoliating cleanser, but it's surprisingly non-drying.
For only ₱521, you get a good amount of product that will last for a while. I recommend this product if you are looking for a substitute cleanser that will gently remove oil and dirt from your skin, as well as scrub away dead skin cells for that clearer-looking complexion.
