My routine analysis says my cleansing could be gentler- what do I use?

I’ve just inputted all of my products via the routine analyser and have been advised I could use a gentler skin cleanser. I currently use Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, what should I use instead?

Was using: Elemis AHA cleansing butter, resurfacing serum & pro collagen cream. Just started using: Cetaphil cleansing facial wash, radiance day cream spf 15, pro nourishing night cream, Beauty of Joseon relief sun.

Cetaphil cleansers can be confusing. Their cleansers in the past contained a cleansing agent SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) that can be irritating. They have re-formulated all of their cleansers recently, and new formulas do not include it. You can still buy old products at some retailers though. So the best way is to check the ingredient label on the product you have. Does it include Sodium Lauryl Sulfate? If no, you are good, no need to change it. If it does, you've got unlucky and purchased an old formulation. You could buy a new formulation from Cetaphil (https://whatsinmyjar.com/product/cetaphil-gentle-skin-cleanser-dry-to-normal-sensitive-skin), or a cleanser like this:

Hi Maria, thank you so much for your reply! Am obsessed with this site since stumbling across it! Not sure how I’m finding the Cetaphil, not sure if it’s making much difference to my skin and doesn’t remove make up well at all :/… am thinking of potentially turning to Clinique ‘take the day off’ for make up removal and might try your Geek to Gorgeous suggestion! Thanks for you advise x
