Cetaphil Antibacterial Gentle Cleansing Bar, The Best Acne Wash

Update: Cetaphil discontinued this soap, for a great new alternative check out the Cetaphil Deep Cleansing Bar.

Product: Antibacterial Gentle Cleansing Bar

By: Cetaphil

Place to Purchase: Amazon

Product Overview

This antibacterial soap is what I consider the best Acne wash since it is an excellent choice for those who not only have Acne in their face, but their body as well. In the Acne page I recommended it as a crucial tool in the treatment of Acne.

While the soap has antibacterial properties it does not dry your face making it a great choice for all Acne sufferers.

The gentle soap and its great scent makes it a great choice as a body wash, rather than those gimmicky body washes that do nothing for you other make you smell different for a little bit, you can be using this soap to fight Acne and smell.. well clean.

While there are other Acne washes a lot of them are not really for use outside of your face, you will simply waste to much product covering your whole body while soap is a bar soap it should last you quite a while.

So Why This Product?

I started using this product because I read an article where a famous make up artist recommended to Acne prone people.

Few months later I read a different article of another make up artist recommending it for people who use too much make up or simply had troublesome Acne.

I saw great reviews online and many people recommending it, so I’ve been using it as my face and body wash soap for years seeing better results than when I was using a regular body wash.

You will see if this products works for you within a week, yea, it is that good.

Tips and Tricks?

Certainly, Before and after using any hand soap always make sure you wash it a bit first, this will remove any coating of bacteria that formed around the soap when it dried and when its finish cleaning you.

Scrubbing your body and face while applying the soap is very important, massaging your face in circular motion while applying the soap will ensure the soap enters your pores more efficiently, let the soap sit on your face for a little bit then rinse off.

Rather than using shaving cream or any other product that might react with your skin this soap is a great thing to use for shaving. I simply let it foam up in my face then shave, it is smooth enough that it will give you a great shave all while you are washing your face.

Final Thoughts

The Antibacterial Soap is a great product to add to your Acne treatment, its’s very effective against Acne. It is gentle, smells wonderful and its antibacterial properties will make you love it even more.

This soap can be used as a full body wash, helping those with Acne in other parts of their body or if you just simply want an antibacterial wash, either way you can’t go wrong with this product.

Do not hesitate to comment or ask any questions and I know this can be another powerful tool on your quest for Beautiful Clear Skin.

    Thanks for sharing. When you first used this product, how soon before you saw a difference? Days? Weeks? Months??

    Is there any side effects of using the product? How many times a day should you use this on acne skin?

      ​Hello Sofia,
      It really depends on your skin type, I’ve seen people get results within days, but mostly I’ve seen people notice a difference within a week as in clearer skin and no new pimples surfacing.

      No side effects at all, it is a very mild soap, it can be used as your shower soap.

      Hope this answers all your questions, thank you for reading.

    Oh snap, I’m looking for something new like this. I’ve used cetaphil before but I haven’t tried the bar yet (I wasn’t aware there was a bar!). I have tried the regular gel and the foam one but I ran out of those and have been using a different one that I don’t like at all!

    Is this good for any type skin? Such as oily, dry, and combination?

      Hey Gabriela,

      Cetaphil has a lot of awesome products! this bar is great for any skin type, it doesn’t dry your skin at all and as someone with oily skin I’ve gotten great results, that’s way I recommend it so much as an Acne wash.

      It’s antibacterial, works on any skin type and it does not dry the skin, thanks for reading.

    I just started using it it makes my face glow, i recently had some pimples on my face which never happened before so it kinda freaks me out. i need to know if this soap can get rid of them also does it get reid of dark spots?

    1. Victor Post author

      Hey Chav,
      You will notice some glowing and since it is an antibacterial soap it will help with your acne, sometimes when people try a new product they might get some breakouts as a result of the skin reacting to it, which is why it is always recommended to try it a product for a month, continue using it a bit more, this will also help you with your dark spots. This is a very safe product, so the worst that could happen is that it won’t work for you, don’t worry. Thanks for reading.

      Hello Jane,
      Yes, this soap is a wonderful full body antibacterial wash. You can use it as your body soap to help you fight acne in other areas of your body and it will not dry your skin because it is very gentle to the skin, thanks for reading.

    Can i use this soap for my 10years old daughter? She has acne with black marks in the forehead and backside. Pls advise.


    1. Victor Post author

      Hey Anusa,
      Certainly, this is a very mild antibacterial soap, that is very soft on any skin, but based on your daughters’ age and your description, it sounds more like she has blackheads. There is this wonderful scrub here from Clean & Clear that would help her a lot. I would recommend both, this product for everyday wash to avoid new blackheads and the scrub to get rid of them, both products are great for teens, hope that helps, thanks for reading.
