    Glad to hear about your breakthrough.

    It seems though that it is always true that what works for one doesn't work for another. Unfortunately the Cetaphil soap for sensitive skin actually did not work for me at all. It caused me redness/ irritation and dryness. So it was not a cure for my rosacea. I cannot tolerate the cetaphil skin cleanser in the plastic pump container either.
