I use this cleanser a few times a week before getting out of the shower (although I don't advise storing it in the shower), and moisturize immediately after. I have very dry skin and I feel the moisturizing after is a VERY important part because my skin never feels dry. I think a lot of the people who wrote bad reviews for this product could benefit a lot from using moisturizer after.
I'm really surprised by the negative comments on this cleanser! I really like it!! I swapped to this when I was a teenager with the normal pimples/ oily problems, after trying Clearasil, Clinique and a lot of other cleansers! But I found this one worked the best.... I'm still using it and I'm 27!! And no longer suffering from pimples... Its a really gentle effective cleanser that leaves your skin feeling clean, but not overly dry or stipped of essential oils. This took a little while to get used to after using harsher products. But now I love it! I find that I have to use a makeup remover also (but I wear Revlon colourstay which takes a bit to remove). This is great to use morning and night - summer and winter!
it's not the greatest cleanser. it doesn't do much for acne but it made my skin feel cleaner & softer.
I think this is one of the better Neutrogena facial cleansers. However, it's kind of deceiving. It's a nice creamy consistency and foams nicely, so it's kind of surprising how drying it really is. I like the way it makes skin tingle. Unfortunately it's drying an doesn't do much for acne, so I wouldn't buy again.
This cleanser is CHEAP LOW END dung! I dont like it! It caused me to breakout, burned my skin, made me darker (hyperpigment) and screwed my skin before my job interview! HOW DARE NEUTRONGENA DO THIS? I wish I could slap neutrogena, I already trashed this cleanser. If you are considering purchasing this..DONT! DONT YOU HEAR ME!!!!! I HOPE YOU ARE READING THIS CAREFULLY!!!!!!!!!! JUST DONT PURCHASE IT!!!!
This is a good face wash for the winter, but its too heavy for the summer. It cleans my face well, but it doesnt get rid of pimples or makeup. Its a so-so cleanser, but I've sorta grown to it for some reason. I just dont like the toothpaste-kind-of-tube because when its nearly empty its hard to squeeze out.
This was just ok, it didn't really help my acne at all and it irriated my eyes if I got it to near them. Like I said it was ok but there are better options out there.
I really like this cleanser. It leaves my skin very soft and the cool feeling it gives is wonderful in the morning. Not long after I began using it, I noticed my pores were much smaller (granted, I had been using Cetaphil before, which doesn't give the best cleanse). I was afraid it would dry out my skin, but in combination with a good moisturizer, it definitely hasn't.
I used it a lot and I didn't like it, so I had no clue why I kept repurchasing. It was very tingly and left my face dried out. Def not for sensitive skin. Didn't clean well either. I've since found my hg and will never come back to this again :)
It leaves a funny film on my face after washing....need I say more? Will NOT buy again under any circumstances.
