(I'm a huge skincare fanatic so you guys will probably see a lot of me in this forum. I'm trying to be more active!!)

In my pregan days, Cetaphil (both the cleanser and the moisturizer) was a godsend. It helped tremendously with my acne and my super sensitive skin, but once I figured out how not friendly it actually was, I tossed it. Filled with sulfates and parabens and sadness.
I have tried to find a replacement for years now, and a lot of products have come close, but not close enough. I took a trip to Austin, TX last week and ran through Whole Foods for some grub, and while walking past the body-care/cosmetic section, I noticed that WF had a 365 Everyday Value version of Cetaphil, a cleanser for normal skin and a cleanser for oily skin if I remember correctly, as well as a moisturizer.
I did a quick scan of the ingredients and they were missing the parabens and the sulfates (yay!) aaaaand I also discovered that the entire 365 Everyday Value line of skin/body/hair care is vegan-friendly (or so customer support said when I emailed them).

So there you go. If you have sensitive, finicky, acne-prone skin, or just carefree and perfect skin (I hate you)/if you are just looking for a cheap and basic cleanser/moisturizer combo, try this~

OMG. Cetaphil really is the best cleanser for my acne-prone sensitive skin, so I'm very excited about this! Must try it out soon.

I looove it. The one designed for normal skin is most like the regular Cetaphil cleanser. If you try it any time soon, tell me if it works for you!

I recently relocated to a place with a close Whole Foods and omg I could spend HOURS in the skin care section. I really want to try the Beauty Without Cruelty line as well as the 365.

I just noticed this at whole foods the other day too! After just coming to the conclusion that cetaphil was the only thing that ever was great to cleanse my skin. Gonna try it! And it was half the price of a big thing of cetaphil!

Thanks for the heads-up on this! I found it in my local WF on sale for $5/16 oz bottle, which is way cheaper than Cetaphil or the cleanser I currently use. I will have to try it and report back. :)

I want to try this now, too! I've been looking for a good, basic cleanser. I'm eager to hear how everybody else finds it.

I'm going to try it as soon as my current cleanser runs out! This could be life-changing.

I'm definitely interested in trying this out so thanks for the heads up! It seems to be a lot cheaper for more product than what I use now so if this stuff works, I will be so happy. I love WF for skin care- $5 for a giant bottle of lotion is great.

I like it as much as my Fresh soy face cleanser. Nice and gentle!

It's not the greatest. I use an oil mixture to remove my makeup before I actually cleanse. I've tried to use just the faux-cetaphil and it doesn't get enough of it off to qualify as a makeup removing cleanser :(

Bumping this thread because I really really like this cleanser. It's feels pretty different than actual Cetaphil, but I don't really care since it works so well for my sensitive skin. Plus, it's cheap! Between this and TJ's oil free moisturizer, I'm super happy to have found a cheap skin care routine that doesn't dry my skin out, cause breakouts, or irritate.

I agree with Wasp that it does not remove makeup very well, which I think it the biggest downside. Oh well. I don't wear makeup very often, so this isn't a huge deal for me. I am curious if anyone has tried the oily skin cleanser though-- I expect that would be better for removing makeup.

For those of you who have tried this, do you think it would work for people with combination skin with acne? If so, which one would you recommend, the kind for normal skin types or the kind for oily skin types?

I haven't tried the oily skin version, personally, so no personal experience there, but assuming it's similar to regular Cetaphil, I think both formulations can work for combination skin. What kind of cleanser do you normally use? If you do best with really mild cleansers, I'd definitely go for the dry skin formulation. But, if you prefer something that is better at removing makeup and leaves your skin feeling squeaky clean, go for the oily skin version. But, as I said, I haven't actually tried the WF oily skin cleanser, so I'm just guessing here. I used to use both versions of Cetaphil-- dry skin version in the winter, and oily skin version in the summer (and on the very rare occasions I wear makeup).

My skin is also combination skin prone to breakouts, but the biggest issue for me is how sensitive it is, so the dry skin WF cleanser has been great in the winter for me thus far. I plan to try the oily skin version once it's not so cold out and I want a stronger cleanser to wash my sweaty face.

Is it dry skin formula or normal skin formula? The two are very different skin types.

Oops. Sorry for confusion, I kept saying "dry skin" formula, but it's according to the label, it's "For all skin types; Fragrance free & non-comedogenic formula for sensitive skin", and the other formulation is "For normal to oily skin".

Ah, okay, thank you. I'm afraid to use the oily skin one because I'm afraid it'd dry out my skin, but I also don't exactly have normal skin (whatever that is). I wish they had little samples.

You can take it back if it does not work....

I don't live near a Whole Foods so I wouldn't be able to. I'd just be picking this up while I'm on vacation.
