    Physiogel or Cetaphil?

    I have a sensitive skin and tends to get irritated easily when I use strong cleanser. I heard about Cetaphil and Physiogel as hypoallergenic products, since they are not cheap, I wanted to make sure that I buy the right one. Any tips? TIA.

    Cetaphil and Physiogel basically does the same thing. They are gentle clensers which do not over dry the skin and great for sensitive skin. Cetaphil is more expensive but does not have the smell that Physiogel has. Cetaphil is fregrance free and is more readily avaiable in stores and even online. It boils down to your budget and if you want to inhale and bad smell or not.

    I would personally go with Cetaphil.  Unlike Physiogel, it's fragrance-free.  If you have sensitive skin chances are you want a fragrance-free product to avoid skin irritation.  Cetaphil is a bit pricey, but sometimes you can get great deals when you buy it online.  I also have sensitive skin and Cetaphil is my go-to cleanser.

      Thanks. It seems 2-0 in favor of Cetaphil, something to ponder about.

    I have very sensitive skin & skin allergies and I have tried them both. I use Physiogel know and it works for me. I felt Cetaphil left a film/residue even after rinsing it off and I didn't like that.

    Whole Foods Market has a skin sensitive cleanser like Cetaphil that I use.  It is all natural and apart of their 365 brand.  I highly recommend!

    I know that Cetaphil can sometimes be drying, especially on dry or sensitive skin.  Personally I would opt for the Cera Ve cleansers that tend not to strip the skin of too much moisture.

    My skin is super sensitive too, i sounds that washing my face with the Cera Ve sensitive wash then putting on Cetaphil moisturizer works best for me.
