I was really excited about this cleanser at first, my combination skin felt super-clean. However, once the water evaporated I realized it was actually stripped!! Not only of dirt but of natural skin oils , too. Felt like I cleaned my face with nail polish remover. I thought I could just moisturize and it'd be okay. WRONG! I broke out in clusters on my cheeks, my nose and the skin around it is now peeling and I have rough patches everywhere else. This is definitely not for me, I don't know if it's the cleanser or the alpha-hydroxy acids. So it says on the bottle to use less often if it causes dryness or irritation: once a week is still too much for my skin! Hey did someone say it cleans makeup brushes...?
I thought neutrogena was supposed to be gentle this stuff burned my skin. After using this I felt like my skin was on fire. NO NO NO I would not recomend this.
HG product for me! Removes all my make up. I have oily skin, and I wouldn't recommend it for dry skin types because it really removes everything! Use moisturizer after.
Feels and smells like liquid detergent on the face. It made the face feel quite smooth after washing initally. however, it irritated my skin after week.. made it too dry and sensitive. I used it as a detergent for washing my make up brushes instead.
This is a very nice cleanser. At first, it was a bit harsh for my skin, and for a while dried it out, but with time my skin grew accustomed to it, and now I can't use anything else! It's good that it thoroughly cleanses, and leaves my skin feeling tingly clean and fresh...a great buy!
I like this cleanser. It leaves such a nice glow after washing with it. The color of the liquid is such a turn off. I like the foaming action.
This is absolutely the worst product I've ever used on my face.It made my face burn & itch.I had to put vaseline on my face to sooth the pain.It also caused me to breakout with small white bumps.I can't believe I spent $6.99
for this junk.I've only used it once & threw the rest away.The bumps it caused are painful and my face became bright red.Don't waste your money .This is one thing that Nuetrogena totally should stop selling .Pure Crap!!!!!!!
Sure it took out all of my make-up and my oily skin felt clean after washing but boy! I got major zits of the cystic variety I ended up spending a fortune on a derma to inject them all with cortisone. I had as much as 13 huge cystic zits in 5 days of using. I used it on my chest and back and it helps prevent breakouts but my face just reacted so badly. It isn't just me either as six other friends complained of major breakouts on face and body. Neutrogena, your 1st disastrous prod. Are you really the same group who gave me my Holy Grails: Pore refining line, Acne Wash and Anti residue shampoo?
This is a good drugstore cleanser-not the best,but it does truthfully deep clean,and did help out with some blemishes, I hated how if I packed it to go to a friends house it leaked all over the place though. Once again this is a good drugstore cleanser,but you could find better at a department store.
are we talking about the gel here? the deep clean facial cleanser is, i believe, the gel in the bottle, not the cream in the squeezy tube. anyway, this, together with a diluted clean&clear continuous control acne cleanser works very well, clears up acne, you do need a moisturizer afterwards though. and for those of you who don't like the smell/consistency/taste.... who the heck cares as long as it makes a difference on your skin?
