Cetaphil Dermacontrol Oil Control Foam Wash and Moisturizer SPF 30

Have you got oily skin? Do you find most cleansers made for oily skin are way too drying?
Well, I’ve found one that you need to try! And you can find it at the drugstore too.

Cetaphil DERMACONTROL Oil Control Foam Wash and Moisturizer SPF 30 for oily, combination or blemish-prone skin contains an oil-absorbing  Zinc Complex that includes zinc coceth(a surfactant, which is a cleanser) for a deep-pore cleanse, and zinc gluconate(has an anti-inflammatory action that keeps acne at bay) to remove excess oil. Together, these ingredients control shine and help improve the skin’s appearance over time.

Cetaphil Dermacontrol Oil Control Foam Wash is nice and foamy! And yes-even I can use it, that’s how non-drying of a cleanser it is. I did pass it along to my hubby to use, as he has oily skin and he loves it. It leaves your skin feeling clean, fresh, and not stripped of moisture at all. I still use it some days after I’ve been at the gym sweating because I don’t know about you, but I tend to break out when I sweat a lot. This cleanser really helps my pores feel clean when I use it. Good stuff!

The Cetaphil Dermacontrol Oil Control Moisturizer SPF 30 is great too. Using a moisturizer is important if you have oily skin, which is something I keep reminding my hubby. Sometimes he forgets, and I know when he’s forgotten because his nose gets so shiny! This moisturizer really helps keep his shine down. I know it’s hard to find a moisturizer for oily skin, and the key is finding something that works well, but won’t clog pores. This one fits the bill! Nice and light feeling, even though it has sunscreen. At least he uses it, so I say that means it’s a winner because OY, getting Terry to use a moisturizer is one of the hardest things ever I swear. If moisturizers smelled like doughnuts it’d be a HECK of a lot easier…   😛

Cetaphil DERMACONTROL Oil Control Foam Wash and Moisturizer SPF 30 both have a retail price of $18.99 and are recommended by the Dermatology Review Panel and was voted Canada’s 2013 Product of the Year, ‘Facial Care’ Category.

Do you have oily skin? What are some products you use to keep the shine at bay?

  • *raises hand* I do!

    I seldom buy more than oil-controlling primers nowadays tho. A lot of those seem too drying for me. Glad to hear these seem to work well! I agree tho: most guys would rather have flaky skin than putting a moisturizer on their faces 🙂

    Do you know how this lotion compares with their regular one with SPF 50? I think I’d try the moisturizer but really dislike foaming cleansers now (not cuz they’re stripping but because I don’t need the foam).

    • I’ve never tried the SPF 50 one so sorry! But this one is nice and I like it.
      I love the foam LOL…I and a child I know hahaha

  • I’ve found my skin has become much less oily now that I’m out of my teens. I use face powder to keep my skin in check.

    This sunscreen sounds perfect! I’m almost out of my current and was going to purchase this. Now I definitely will!

    • Yay! I think you’ll love it! I think it’s a great option for oily skins that can’t tolerate a sunscreen AND a moisturizer too.

  • Ooh! I just saw these today and almost got the moisturizer but wanted to research it a bit first. And here comes your helpful post! Thanks Tracy!

  • Emma Bovary

    These sound really good – I’ve had great success with the Cetaphil sunscreen moisturiser and have no idea why I stopped using it!

  • Aaaah, the nose, the tell-tale sign of a cheater!!! 😉 I wish we had t his brand here.

    My skin changed from being oily to combination to normal to now mostly normal sometimes dry. I see a pattern here. The only time I used Cetaphil was when I had allergic reactions on my face, and the doctor told me to use nothing but this cleanser. So I always associate this brand with that horrible time. LOL!

  • Ha ha! I agree, if moisturizers smelled like doughnuts (or bourbon! or bacon!), men would be using them all the time! I’ve never tried this, but it sounds pretty groovy. I’ve been using the Clinique ultra mild bar soap and my skin has been very happy. I used to use it back in high school and college and decided to return to my former winner, lol! And you’re right – every soap formulated for oily skin seems to strip every ounce of moisture from the skin, leaving it painfully tight and uncomfortable. I may have oily skin, but it gets dry and painful very easily so I always use products formulated for dry skin! They’re always much more gentle and still get the cleansing job job. 🙂

  • Now there’s an idea, make moisturizers and such smell like FOOD when you apply it. Then again, would I want a bacon serum with a cookies scented moisturizer on top? Hmm decisions decisions.
