What we say:
I love the pump-action bottle and the clean, fuss-free formulation, however, I am not the biggest fan of foam cleansers in general. The results speak for themselves though. Since using this cleanser my skin’s condition has improved overall, and I have had fewer breakouts than usual. I usually struggle with oiliness, but this has been significantly reduced, and I haven’t even been using my blotting tissues. I am very impressed with this product and would definitely recommend it to anyone who battles breakouts and shine.

Cetaphil Oil Control Foam Wash

My war against oily skin is a never ending battle.. I leave the house looking fresh and mattified but by the afternoon it is always return of the shine! :/
At first I was admittedly sceptical that Cetaphil oil control foam wash would be able to finally win this war against sebum station, and after 3 weeks of use I wouldn’t say its a victory but it defiantly is an improvement!
The clear, foaming liquid is refreshing and clean on the skin and doesn’t leave skin feeling tight or too dry. And a little drop really goes a long way.
I only used it once a day (in the evening).
I cant say whether it was helpful in preventing breakouts as my skin goes through random stages of clear and not clear so its very hard to relate it to a specific problem… I would only be able to tell after about 6 moths of use.
I think that combined with an oil control moisturiser, Cetaphil Oil control foam wash can be the perfect alliance to defeat the shine monster once and for all!

My doctor recommended this face wash when I was struggling a lot with hormonal breakouts, and he was right! This worked like a bomb. It cleared the ever-returning pimples. My skin felt great while using this, and never left my skin feeling dried out and tight. It is also a very soft face wash, so I never struggled with it burning my eyes, which I really liked about this product! Overall, a great face wash but slightly more expensive than the Nivea and Dove ones.

Great for acne/oily skin


I love Cetaphil products because I always feel the brand is truly a skincare brand and not a cosmetics brand. With this in mind, it is no wonder that their DermaControl Oil Control wash is great for skin with any kind of break out or acne concerns.
I have also been using the wash to remove make-up at the end of the day and have been very pleasantly surprised.
The wash doesn’t leave your skin feeling dry or tight afterwards either which can often be the case with cleansers for oily skin.

Oil Control


I think its very important for guys to also look after their skin. This face wash works great to take the dirt away.
