Review: Physiogel Cleanser

Good evening ladies,

It's been exactly 5 months since I started using Physiogel Hypoallergenic Cleanser as my facial wash and make-up remover so I am more or less able to give you an extensive review on my experience with the product.

At first, I really thought the bottle won't last me very long. This very slim 300 ml, at first glance made me think that this bottle would be finished in 2 months. But here we are, 5 months after and there's still about 1/5 left, enough to last for at least the next month I hope.

I will not contest Physiogel's medical claims as far as being hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic is concerned because of two reasons:
1. My dermatology rotation proved it to me
2. I never had any pimple outbreaks attributable to the product (I'm not saying I never had outbreaks, but most of my pimple problems were stress related).

The cleanser has a light white/cloudy white color with a semi-viscous consistency and like the lotion, leaves a thin film-like feel over the skin. The skin feels very smooth immediately after use as a  cleanser. As a make-up remover, it works well when removing my daily make-up but since I don't usually use very heavy formulated make-up, nor do I use a lot of waterproof make-up, so I cannot comment on how good it takes those off. Personally, I prefer using it over the oil type removers on the face simply because it's non greasy but  prefer the water-based removers for the eyes over this.

But the thing I love the most about it is that it helps retain a lot of moisture on my face. I say this because my face has this automatic moisture meter. A few years before, whenever I forget to put moisturizer on my face or it's winter, or it's just plain dry, my dermatitis act up and my face gets itchy in certain parts then red then they start to scale. However, from the time I started using this, I haven't had any of those problems. Sure, because of the stress one or two areas may start getting red and itchy, but as compared to the ones I used to have, they weren't as itchy, they weren't as big, they weren't as many and they did not last longer than 2 days. I used to need to put steroids over the affected area for 7-10 days but now, I've never once used it. Even when I get lazy in putting moisturizer on my face everyday or even if I've missed putting for about 2 weeks, I've never had to deal with my dermatitis acting up.

Sorry that I could not upload any pictures of my face before and of the current state of my skin since I have been too busy to take pictures of my not so very glamorous face. I hope you guys try Physiogel though, especially for those with sensitive skin. It is a little more expensive than the usual soaps but the way it takes care of your skin makes up for it's cost.

Well, that's it for this short review. Hope I was informative and you found this helpful.



  1. sis how much isa bottle? not bad if it could last you 5months and a little more. :)

  2. Will get back to you on that since this was a free sample during physiogel's event...

  3. This one costs P325.00. :) I haven't tried mine yet but I'm hoping it works for me too. It seems like a really great product!

  4. I use this one, too! Maganda sya for everyday use kasi gentle and effective. :)

  5. I've tried it and it really works for me. Until now I'm still using it to remove my makeup and even leave it on my skin overnight. It's indeed hypoallergenic :)

  6. I use this and I like it! Ok sya talaga no? I like that it's cheaper than cetaphil.
