Neutrogena usually works fantasic for me, and I have used the pink grapefruit facewash and it worked fine, so I decided to try the body wash. BIG mistake . . I got a horrible rash shortly after using this product. Tons of tiny little bumps anywhere I had used it at showed up shortly after I started using it. I've changed out bodywashes since, but the rash has yet to still fully go away.
Yeahh i hated this product. I dont have severe acne just the few breakouts on shoulders back and chest. I bought this stuff having high hopes. It didnt just not do anything it made me breakut more. Id gotten more breakouts than ever i was so embaressed. It smells good thats the only plus. But yeah this stuff was horrible and it dried out my skin terribly. Not reccomended.
I like this product a lot. My face and back had been breaking out quite a bit lately, so I started using this a few months back and have already gone through almost a full bottle. I just actually bought another one. Now, my face is still breaking out, but my back isn't, so I'd say this product is working nicely. I'm going to try using this on my face, since most face washes don't have the 2% salicylic acid this stuff does. I'll comment back in a couple weeks and let you all know how that goes. But two days so far, and no new breakouts.
This product only smells good for like a second. My shower quickly turned from smelling like grapefruit to smelling like fast food!!! I'm not kidding, it starts to smell like stale hamburgers and french fries....it is disgusting!!! There is such an awful "after-smell" that I threw the bottle away before I could even see if it worked.
I don't know what the hell is in this body wash but in the past week I have been using it, my skin has been itching like crazy. I feel like I have developed a rash, and I do not have sensitive skin by any means.
There is something different in this version vs. the original, not sure what, but either way I have stopped using it.
I decided to try this product this I generally like the Neutrogena Body Clear Body Wash/Scrub products. I love the smell of grapefruit so this seemed like a nice alternative to the sort of blah scent of the original.
I have to say I am very disappointed in this product. The first two times I used it I was struck by how great it smelled and how the scent lingered nicely. My skin seemed to be dry but I figured the product was just workings its wonders. I should add now that I have acne prone oily skin with occasional break outs on my back.
The third time I used this product my skin felt dryer and I decided maybe I should skip the body wash the next time. The very next day, I woke up with a rash around my collarbone, chest, and upper back--exactly where I use this body wash. I then noticed a large break out with dozens small pimples all over my back and upper arms as well as about three large pimples on my back. It's as ugly as it sounds.
I recommend that people try out this body wash on a patch of skin first. I should have done this before using the product but I honestly didn't expect any kind of adverse reaction since I've always done well with Neutrogena products.
Sadly, Body Clear Body Wash in Pink Grapefruit was not a winner for me. Instead of killing and preventing more acne, I've got a large rash and breakout to deal with and handful of bucks down the drain.
Love this product. I saw a difference in my back acne after 1 week of use, and after 2 weeks pretty much all of my back acne is gone. I'm so happy that I can now wear halter tops for the hot summer months. Be sure to use this every time you shower, and be thorough in cleaning the affected areas. Don't scrub though, that increases irritation. I recommend washing your back after you rinse your hair of conditioner-the oils in your conditioner can clog your pores.
I have been buying this ever since it came out. I have sinus problems and severe allergies, so my allergist and general doctor think it's a good idea for me to take hot showers to ease my congestion. My back and chest aren't too happy with their recommendation. I started with the Original Body Clear Body Wash, which has great results, but had a boring smell, like many acne-fighting body washes do (Sometimes, you just want to use a fruity, fun smelling one). When this product came out, I was beside myself since it smells amazing and I could finally have my cake and eat it too. It works even better than the original does. Whoever comes up with products at Neutrogena is a genius.
I don't have any issues with acne or any break-outs, I just bought this because I love grapefruit, and they had this in a very large container at Costco. I love the smell and how clean and fresh it makes my skin feel. Container is great for the shower. I love how this lathers up on a loofa or sponge for washing as well.
This is working so well for me! At age 41 I am STILL breaking out on my chest and back. It is embarrassing! I want to wear cute skinny strapped dresses and shirts and have not been able to. Until I found this stuff!
I work out 4-5 days a week and I am sure that has a lot to do with my back/chest breaking out. So what I do is after my workout is: I quickly change my workout shirt, towel off, use a wet towel cleanser like Ponds wipes or Neutrogena ones (whatever is on sale, it doesn't seem to matter) on my back and chest. Then I go home to shower and use the Neutrogena pink grapfruit cleanser with a nylon scrubby. So far so good!
Looks like I will be able to wear whatever I want this summer!
