Oh my goodness, the smell of this wash is AMAZING.
I have extremely sensitive skin and this exfoliate wash is perfect.. Usually if there is perfume in it, my skin will react. It's not too harsh, doesn't make my skin react and I can use it once a day. It lathers really nice unlike the main cetaphil wash. I hope Cetaphil never gets rid of this product.
I figured most cetaphil products would be unscented so I ordered this without trying it. It works well and a great price but the scent is quite strong. It's not horrible but I would have preferred to know in advance. Description should be more clear.
love the cetaphil brand and love this cleanser! like other reviews there is a noticeable perfume scent but honestly i don’t mind and it’s not irritating to my sensitive combination skin. it’s lightweight and your skin feels clean after washing, but the exfoliation is not as deep cleaning as i’d like
Pros (+): +Cleans well +Feels refreshing +Hypoallergenic +Safe on sensitive skin
Cons (-): -Strong scent

Since I’m allergic to the world – I always look for hypoallergenic products and this meets that requirement. It also does an excellent job of being good on your skin and not damaging it in any way – by using some vitamins in the process. The wash itself does a good job of exfoliating and cleansing your pores and you do leave feeling refreshed – however, during this process you have to deal with the scent which is extremely strong and could turn some people off of the product. That would be my only concern with recommending this to people – if you’re sensitive with smells, this is not the product for you.

This Cetaphil Extra Gentle Daily Scrub is, as the product name suggests, super gentle. It's too gentle for me, personally, as I didn't notice it does much 'exfoliation' other than any normal face wash - but given it appears that's precisely the point ('extra gentle daily scrub', after all), I cannot deduct any stars because being extra gentle is Cetaphil's stated purpose. And, of course, Cetaphil has an excellent reputation for no-nonsense products which deliver.
This scrub, however, isn't something I'd use myself given its stronger scent. I personally prefer my face products to have bergamot, lime, etc - whereas this scent is a bit more 'purposeful, industrial'. It's a bit tough to pin down, but it does seem somewhat incongruous with a 'gentle' product. In any event, this is a personal opinion - others may love it. And the price of this scrub is excellent. So, in sum, this is a super gentle and inexpensive facial scrub you could use daily if you like the scent.
I do like this product and i like Cetaphil as well. But like it goes with any other scrub you have to be careful if your skin is sensitive to things like this. This one is extra gentle so it is like it says. It reacts just fine with my skin and i have had no negative experiences just yet and i dont think i will. I just dont think this is a very high quality brand in which is why i took off a star. It does work and feels nice with hardly no scent so that is good for sure. I do recommend this to anyone who is in need of something like this. Good product, but not amazing
I don't know if I can consider this as a scrub since I can't feel any scrubbing action or exfoliants, but it cleans my face well and is certainly gentle. It has a very faint scent that dissipates quickly. I only need to use a very small amount and it lathers pretty well. I like that it has vitamins in it for my skin. Overall it's great for sensitive skin but don't notice or feel it exfoliating much and that could be because it's extra gentle.
Using the Cetaphil Extra Gentle Daily Scrub takes time to see and feel any real results on your face. It works but it is not an instant cure for dry skin or even for oily skin which retain more dirt particles. If used once daily expect to see some improvements in about 2 to 3 weeks.
