I received a sample of this cleanser in my Target Beauty Bag. I liked it right away. It really seems to brighten and smooth out my face. It hasn't dried it out at all, nor has it caused any breakouts. I use it once a day, in the morning. I don't need much, probably not even a full pump.
I've already purchased the regular size bottle. One thing I don't like about the packaging is you're suppose to shake before use, yet it's in a pump bottle. I'm not crazy about the scent, but it doesn't linger.
I received this product in a target beauty bag, and overall, I'm not impressed with it. It didn't make my face feel clean and it didn't do very well at removing the rest of my makeup. I also don't like the fact that it doesn't lather (it doesn't claim to be foaming though). The smell is kind of fruity/fresh, so that was nice. I didn't notice any difference in my skin brightness after using this product.
I have never been one to receive compliments on my skin, however, after using this product for a week my best friend whom I hadn't seen all summer commented on how radiant my skin looked. My sister asked me a week later if I was pregnant because I looked like I was "glowing." While the pregnant comment made me rush to the gym a.s.a.p. I knew that it was because of this face wash. I am also guilty of wearing heavy eye makeup and I don't even need a makeup remover prior to washing my face with this. This is a must have product for me!
I'll buy it again. I have used Clinique's Clinical Spot Corrector serum for a couple of years with moderate success-nothing to rave about. My spots are nearly gone, but it took two years at 50 bucks an ounce. That adds up! This stuff is at most 7 bucks a bottle (and a bottle that never leaks on me), and two days after I started using it my boyfriend (who notices nothing, like most guys) told me my face was bright and glowy. If that's not proof idk what is. I took one lippy off bc of the smell. It's grown on me, but I'll admit that the first time I used it I thought the perfume amount was ridiculous, and I appreciate a good smelling product, I really do. I also took the lippy off bc it did dry my skin a bit at first and I had a small dry patch for a day. tak into consideration though that my skin is oil-less. Oily skinned folks should have no issue with that. Overall, this is better than the Estee Lauder cleanser I had in my bag. No longer- it's in the trash. This is a 50 dollar cleanser in my opinion, and I'll gladly buy it again! I think this is a score for Neutrogena.
I have very acne prone skin and this doesn't cause problems for me at all. The product I was using was Topic Resurfix Ultra Gentle Cleanser. I stopped using that and started using the Neutrogena cleanser and noticed my skin improved - more glow, smoother, softer. I believe the occurrence of breakouts is lessened with the Neutrogena also. I use a baby washcloth to rub the cleanser in and exfoliate. In the morning I follow it up with just a LRP SPF15 moisturizer and at night I use Avene Triacneal (glycolic/retinol). The Avene is powerful so it's really all I need for a treatment item and the rest of what I use is very mild.
Perhaps the people experiencing breakouts are experiencing purging? I find this to be an awesome cleanser and the price is right too... I'd pay more for a decent cleanser but I don't have to this time!
I bought this, thinking it would give me a glowy complexion, but instead… It made me break out. And I never break out! It did work but I don't recommend you use it everyday. I used it twice a week. Until I realized how badly I was breaking out. Then I just stopped using it
I got a free sample of this from a Target beauty bag. I've tried it for awhile and have to say I don't care for it. It smells good, but it made me break out. I normally don't break out (maybe a few times a year at best) and within a week I had 5 or 6 pimples and some redness. It made my face tingle, too. Which is usually a good thing, but it kind of burned. Made my face feel smooth though.
This review is for Neutrogena Visibly Bright Daily Facial Cleaner, which I believe is my new HG cleanser. A large sample was given to me by a fellow MUA'er and I've been using it each night for about a week now. The tube states that it is made to "transform dull, tired skin to visibly bright and refreshed".
From the website under: PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Visibly Bright™ Daily Facial Cleanser transforms dull, tired skin to visibly bright & refreshed skin in just 4 uses.
The unique formula, infused with Soy and Vitamin C, dissolves skin-dulling impurities and surface skin cells, while a citrus anti-oxidant complex helps to refresh skin. Skin looks brighter and less tired.
Won't overdry skin. Gentle enough for daily use.
I agree with these claims. I felt the difference right away. By the 4th day my skin felt extra fresh and clean. It has a strong citrus scent like very sweet pink grapefruit. The formulation has sparkles in it which I don't get, but don't mind because of how my skin feels. It retails for about $7.00 US for 6.7 ounces. I'm not going to claim the benefits of the Vitamin C because I'm not sure of the stability or percentage, however I do follow-up with a Vitamin C Serum and then my moisturizer. This is a very good product for the price and I'm extremely satisfied.
