This product was horrible for me. It dried my skin out to the point that it took two weeks to recover from the peeling. I should have tossed this the first time I tried it. It literally dried my skin out instantly, to the point where it was hard to move. If this dries your skin out, and you're using a moisturizer to compensate for the dryness, that is so bad. why would you strip your natural oils, and add moisture back on? Over time, that will damage your skin. I only gave it one lippie because it did not break me out, my skin remained clear. I rather have one or two pimples than skin that is tight and dry. This may be good for someone with normal skin, but if you are like me, who has tight, dehydrated skin from using so many different products...stop using this, your skin will become drier. I say use Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser. My skin is healing from using that alone once a day or every few days. I find that my skin isn't dry or too oily. It feels comfortable.
This is a horrible product! It's incredibly drying, makes my skin all weird and tight. I have oily, acne-prone skin and this dried my oily skin up, I have no idea how much worse it would be on dry skin. The biggest problem I had with this was the SMELL. It smells strongly of metal and other things that I can't describe because I've never smelt anything like it. It smells so horrible that it's distracting and I have to quickly wash it off.
-Really cheap(approximately $3)
-Soaps up easily, becomes very foamy
-Doesn't leave any kind of film or oily residue on the skin
-Can be used on the body and on the face(multipurpose product)
-The horrible smell
-Dries out oily skin
-Broke me out
-The bar packaging is not travel friendly
-Leaves skin feeling tight
Overall, this product did not work for me at all and I will not be repurchasing this product.
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 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.
