Don't get us wrong: We love luxurious skincare products. But sometimes you can find a tried-and-true drugstore brand that's just as effective as the designer stuff (for a fraction of the price). Enter Cetaphil, the decades-old skincare brand that's arguably the poster child for under-the-radar drugstore gems.
The corner store staple has developed somewhat of a cult following since its development in the 1970s, and dermatologists are among the brand's many avid followers. Its fragrance-free formula is gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin, which is one of the many reasons dermatologists love it.
"I've been borrowing my son's Cetaphil Baby Ultra Moisturizing Wash because it rinses clean, leaving my skin feeling super-soft all day," said Dendy Engelman, MD, Manhattan Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery to Health. "This wash delivers a hint of vitamin B5 and is paraben-, colorant-, and mineral oil-free, so it's perfect for daily use."
What's more, the company is having a 70-hour flash sale in honor of its 70th birthday, slashing prices at Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Target, Rite Aid, CVS, and more from September 17 through September 19. When the clock strikes midnight on September 17, head over to Coupons.com to get $7 off any two Cetaphil products or more.
