I really like this bar. I saw dr oz had recommended glycerin soap for oily skin. This bar cleans my skin and removes access oil. It is slightly drying, but my skin tends to be oily so it wasn't bothersome I just moisturize after.
I went to the store intending to purchase the Neutrogena liquid face wash, but they were sold out...the bars were right next to it, and there was a BOGO so I picked up 2 bars of the original formula (like $3 for 2 bars!). I figured if they were decent I was gonna save some serious money on face washes, and if they sucked, I wasn't losing much by chucking them into the trash. Well, I actually really like this facial soap! I lather it up in a wet washcloth and scrubbed my face, and every bit of my makeup was gone, my face was super clean but not overly dried out, and my normally shiny skin looked more balanced. I also believe my liquid foundation is applying more nicely when I wash with this. I am in love with the scent this have, kinda earthy and spicey, but they have a fragrance free version for folks who prefer that. The only con is that it's a bar, so if you're like me, and like to wash your face in the shower, you will need to store this in one of those covered travel soap dishes, because glycerine bars melt faster than traditional bar soaps. I keep one in a pretty soap dish by my sink too. It's simple skincare, and I like keeping things simple! UPDATE: Family Dollar sells their knockoff version of this for only $1, and it's just as good!
I love this stuff. I prefer the sensitive skin fragrance free first.
My first impression when I started using this a few years ago was that it left my skin feeling squeaky which scared me. But that just means it's doing it's job! I have used this for years and initially, it dramatically cleared up my horrible acne.
I highly recommend this paired with a topical medicine and nice moisturizer. I think the fact that it is so simple is what makes it such a great product. No fancy scents and colors and claims, just a basic cleanser that does it's job. It is great for oily skin! Might be a bit drying.
My only complaint that it is a bar. It is hard to travel with and store in the bathroom. So I just bought the orange oil-free acne cleanser that comes with the pump in hopes that it yields the same results as the beloved bar.
Very simple and lightweight, this is a very basic, gentle soap with no medication or acne fighting acids. It's non comedogenic, and helps cleanse the face without over drying it. I used it last night and my face didn't feel tight or patchy after using this like it does with many other face cleansing products. I woke up this morning with acne scars visibly reduced and a smoother face, but that could be due to the fact that facial skin regenerates itself during sleep, so I don't know. I really feel this is just a bar of glycerin, and paying over $6 per bar is expensive and totally not worth it. It could come with a simple soap holder for the bathtub to justify it's price, but it's packaging is simple carton too. I'm still deciding whether I like this product or not.
I've been using this since I was 12 and I'm 36 now. I've tried many, many other cleansers and always come back to the classic Neutrogena bar. It's the only product that I feel thoroughly cleans my oily skin. I prefer the original scent but it is relatively hard to find so I will buy the fragrance-free if that's all that is available.
So i've used so many products over the year in hopes of getting clear smooth beautiful skin
but none of them ever worked for me until i came across this life changing product after using it for only TWO DAYS my skin got incredibly clear and smooth it became amazing and balanced ,although it maybe a bit drying a pump of moisturizers gets rid of that (Clinique Dramatically Different Gel) but honestly i've loved this product so much i felt like i had to write a review i've bin using this product non-stop for years now i can say in all honesty
Neutrogena Facial Wash Soap Bar is the best solution for acne ,lots of my friends loved it
and my daughter uses it too and she loves it as well ,this product is definitely a product worth purchasing
I have dry skin and am prone to blackheads and a very dry tzone and this soap is amazing! Just after one use your skin feels amazing and it leaves your skin with a beautiful and healthy glow! I highly recommend this product, just don't get it in your eyes!!!
It lathers well and keeps my breakouts at bay. I use this daily!
I have fairly dry skin but I love this bar, it makes my skin feel so clean. It could be a bit drying but I use it in the evening and apply a moisturising facial oil immediately after using so it's not a problem. I love the scent, it reminds me of a really nice men's aftershave, Brut maybe? The price is very reasonable. The only problem is that I am in the UK and it is very hard to find stockists. I get it from Amazon and even with US shipping the price is good.
I have used this to wash my face for years. The cost is super low. There are no-nonsense facial bar cleansers and if you use them without following up with a good moisturizer or do a bad job rinsing, you WILL regret it. They are slightly drying but they get make-up off, help acne and make skin squeaky clean.
For the price-to-quality ratio, I am definitely sticking with them as long as I can.
I only buy the original formula so that I can use it to remove all of the makeup and oils from the makeup off my skin. It does the job so well! I follow up with my foaming salicylic acid cleanser for my acne and then use a good moisturizer. This bar is good for removing all traces of makeup and oils that clog pores, but can be a little drying. you're face will squeaky clean.
