Cetaphil products are amazing – they’re easily available, fairly affordable, and dermatologists highly recommend the brand because of its gentle ingredients. I’ve been using their Gentle Skin Cleanser for years, so when I heard Cetaphil was expanding their line of products, I was eager to try them.
The Acne Bacteria Fighting Gel from their Acne Principles line is the best Benzoyl Peroxide treatment I’ve tried to date. With a 5% concentration, it’s water based, meaning it’s effective enough for my oily skin but isn’t overly drying. The gel formula is fantastic because it sticks to my skin and absorbs quickly, whereas a lot of other benzoyl peroxide creams I’ve used dry on top of the skin and look flaky. The smell also gets bonus points – it doesn’t smell like anything, which is great because similar gels and creams either small like bad mushrooms or are too perfume like and get my allergies going.
I use it at night time after cleansing, and sometimes mix a dab of it with my daytime SPF cream. Since incorporating this into my routine, my skin has been clear and feels really soft.
