Cetaphil now available in Boots!

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 17 - 2011

The budget skincare brand that enjoys a cult following in the U.S. is now available to buy in Boots.  I’ve previously bought the Cetaphil cleanser from my local Lloyds pharmacy but availability was hit and miss – hopefully, with such a major stockist now, those troubles will be a thing of the past.

Despite an ingredient list that consists of mostly fatty alcohols, SLS, parabens and mineral oil derivatives, this somehow works for me.  It’s not perfect but it is cheap and it doesn’t strip my dry skin like most cleansers.  If you’re an organic-loving skincare girl, give it a wide berth.

If you’re curious to try something new to settle your irritated or reactive winter skin, give this a go before spending the big bucks!

Cetaphil is priced at £9.18 for the large 236ml size bottles, available online and instore at Boots.

    There is also an Oily Skin variant – unsure if that’s made it to Boots, though! This is certainly the go-to product for sensitive skin, and more than one make up artist I know carried the moisturising lotion because it’s the only product they know that won’t react with ANYONE’S skin!

  2. Robyn says:

    Yay! I really want to try this, I’ve heard SUCH good things.

  3. I’m so surprised by the ingredients! This is the default recommendation by dermatologists if you have a terrible breakout or skin condition on your face. Not only that, lots of peeps have said how this facial wash had saved their skin etc. Maybe it just shows some parabens/SLS/mineral oil aren’t that bad for you.

    They’ve had this at my local Asda for ages!

  5. This was in Costco, as a twin pack for £22 last week! Jeez!

  6. Imo says:

    YES! I bought the cleanser in NYC and it was the acne version, it was crap I want to try this sensitive one.

  7. Lauren says:

    It’s also now available in ASDA chemist xx

  8. Dana says:

    I live in the US, I’ve been using the one for oily skin for years, it’s one of the few cleansers that does not break me out. And it’s cheap!

    Just to clarify, this has always been available at Boots – you just had to order it via Pharmacy/counter at Boots in-store.
