I have (finally) found my skin care tribe.

I have struggled for years to find a skin care brand that works for me. I have sensitive skin and often even products that say ‘for sensitive’ skin react with me, you may remember the time I nearly burnt my face off. For years all I used on my skin was soap and aqueous cream.

When Cameron was struggling with his skin, one of the swimming moms suggested we try Cetaphil for him. It was the first time I heard of the brand but it was the start of my love affair with the brand.

Over the last year or so I have been sent a few products including the amazing products that got my oily skin under control, each product has been as amazing as the last. The best part is that we now all use the brand.

Recently I was sent the Cetaphil® Extra Gentle Daily Scrub and I think this is my current favourite product within the brand. I absolutely loved how it made my skin feel. Kiara is now using it and loving it just as much and I can see a change in her skin as well.

The benefits of the Cetaphil® Extra Gentle Daily Scrub include;

  • Gently exfoliates skin while removing skin impurities and
    environmental pollutants
  • Clinically tested for daily use
  • Leaves skin feeling refreshed and invigorated
  • Promotes healthy glowing skin
  • Renews and improves skin texture
  • Suitable for sensitive skin
  • Maintains skin’s natural balance

Cameron grabbed this Cetaphil® Daily Hydrating Lotion because he really battles to keep his skin hydrated with all the swimming and now that it is winter it is even harder.

The Cetaphil® Daily Hydrating Lotion with hyaluronic acid (HA) is an eective moisturising agent and HA an essential component of skin. HA is known for its ability to retain up to 1000x its weight in water. This lightweight, oil-free moisturiser provides instant hydration to the skin and locks in moisture to protect from dryness throughout the day. Clinically tested for daily use in people with sensitive dry to very dry skin, the Daily Hydrating Lotion is formulated with plant extracts in order to keep the skin looking and feeling fresh and healthy.
Following a single application, the skin is seen to be hydrated in just 15 minutes for 24 hours. The Cetaphil® Daily Hydrating Lotion – Recommended Retail Price R 280.00 for an 88ml.

I love the simplicity of this brand. The packaging is simple and to the point. The products aren’t overly fragranced but they do what they are designed to do. They also last really well which definitely influences my buying.

It has taken me almost 40 years but I have finally found a skin care brand that works for me and my family.

Have you tried any of these products?

Disclaimer: I was sent a some of the Cetaphil products to review.

    I haven’t tried Cetaphil but funny as I was just reading another post where it was recommended also. I know how hard it is to find products that suit – especially for dry or sensitive skin which my daughter has. I’ll have to let her know about it – thanks for your recommendation.
