this cleanser is one of the most drying cleansers i've tried, it completely dried it out(i have combo skin), it left my face feeling extreamly tight and the texture of my skin started to feel gritty. After 3 days use i put this straight into the garbage!
Too drying. Yuck. My husband has oily oily skin and I have dry skin... and we both hated it.
I really disliked this cleanser. It left my skin feeling horribly dry. It's a very gentle cleanser though, and fairy simple so I think it'd be a good cleanser for someone who was just starting on skincare products. It removes make up fairly well.
I really like this cleanser. It leaves my skin feeling very clean and soft. I have relatively oily skinned and get the occaisonal pimple and have noticed that using this seems to help reduce blemishes, too. The only downside is a sort of uncomfortable tingling feeling when using this, but it goes away shortly after you rinse it off and is certainly tolerable for such a great product at such a great price.
( CREAM CLEANSER )A dermatologist recommeded this product to me after I went to see him about break outs I was having. This is gentle enough to use as an everyday cleanser for my thirty year old combination skin and it didn't leave me over dry as some products tend to do. Didn't clog my pores and left my face feeling fresh and clean.
great stuff... this cleanser removes makeup very well. but using it too often might result in dryness.
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.
