THIS STUFF IS A MIRACLE. I have been using this for about two years now on and off of it because I am the queen of buying new products that I end up not liking. but I have always gone back to this product. I have VERY oily acne prone skin and I use this product day and night after I take off my make up. I wash it with a cheap facial brush I got from Sally's. this is ONLY product that clears me up fast and stays that way. I follow it with the neutrogena pore toner and in the morning, the wash with the toner and neutrogenas oil free moisturizer. definitely plan on using this for a while
My daily facial cleanser(: my sensitive, blemish prone skin had become smooth and soft with this.
I use Dove Unscented beauty bar in the morning, and this Neutrogena wash at night (for a deeper clean and makeup removal) followed by Olay Complete Sensitive moistuizer. My secret for smooth, flawless and healthy skin!
I use this twice a day,my skin is so silly and smooth and looks so glowing and healthy
This is a gentle but effective daily scrub. My skin doesn't like most cleansers. If at all emollient, it breaks out. If too strong, it gets irritated. I'm on my second tube and can't remember buying any facial cleanser more than once in years.
Does what it says on the tin. It's not a harsh scrub at all, but your face comes out feeling soft. It isn't really a mask, so it wont really draw out black heads or impurities.
In fact, I like it for that - this really is a "one use" product, in that it is simply just a cleansing scrub. Won't go deeper than skin level.
So this is nice and gentle and you could use it frequently, without damaging your skin (like a lot of other grainy scrubs). But you will need to pair it with a mask that can draw out deeper dirt in the pores.
I like where Neutrogena is going with the 'natural' brand.
Overall, will keep using to say whether I would buy again or not. I probably would if it was on sale.
I am 30 years old and have unpredictable acne. It comes and goes as it pleases depending on my stress, food I eat, makeup I use or anything else that triggers those awful blemishes. I have been using this product along with the acne cream cleanser at least once a day in the shower for over a month. I have also been using the multi-vitamin nourishing moisturizer and the acne spot treatment at least once a day. I have noticed a huge decrease in the redness in my problem areas, the amount of blemishes I get and the length of time the blemishes last. I love this stuff. I am still not able to wear makeup the way I would like, but I am more confident with my skin. Also, my skin is not oily or dry; I just get acne.
This product has little micro beads that exfoliate just enough to allow the acne cleanser to really get in and do its job. The smell is pleasant to me. I can not describe it, but it is relaxing.
This product is great if you wear minimal makeup and have sensitive skin. The scrubbing agents are very gentle and the scrub itself smells wonderful. It has natural ingredients like jojoba and willowbark, which is one of the first reasons I picked it up. My skin dries out and breaks out in pimples very easily, and unlike other products when I use this it doesn't feel like I just ripped my skin off. But because it is so gentle and lacking lots of chemicals, it will not remove heavy eyeliner or mascara, so if you wear eye makeup I suggest using a cleanser that does remove it and then using this. Overall, I am very satisfied with this product.
This product is a great exfoliator and cleanser. Did make my skin feel cleaner, although it also dried it out. It will be great for those with more oily skin (i have combo skin). Packaging can cause you to accidentally use more product than intended because of the runny texture + big opening of the tube. Will continue to use the product and moisturise afterwards, but wont be repurchasing. Also important to note that it didnt break me out, as many neutrogena products do.
My face is super sensitive but have big pores that always look clogged. I've always used Biore daily scrub once a week and it kept my pores pretty clear. I decided to try this one because of all the natural ingredients. Pros:I LOVE the smell of it! Has a light ocean/beach scent. It also has very fine scrubbers. Like little grits of sand. Left my face clean without stripping and drying. Cons: making my face itch like crazy! Left little bumps all over my face. Didn't know natural products irritate the skin so bad! After I use this tube, I'm going back to Biore!
The first and so far only cleanser I've tried from this line. Like a lot of people I was attracted to it because of all the natural ingredients. Let me just say that this is definitely not to be confused with an exfoliating scrub. This is not something you would use once or twice a week. Its definitely more of a cleanser-scrub that's safe enough to use twice a day. You can feel the Jojoba beads but they're very gentle. The smell is kind of sweet, nothing to overpowering. This didn't dry out my skin but it didn't do much for my oily skin either. So I would probably only use it in the Fall and Winter.
The packaging isn't great. With how runny the consistency of the cleanser is, I'd like if the opening was a bit smaller. You can end up using a little more product then you really need. I wouldn't call this my HG cleanser but would use it again if I get sick of trying out different products and want something with much healthier ingredients.
