I was so excited to try this product. It smells great and heard good things from my friends. I recently have had a few acne problems when I normally do not break out at all so I decided to finally try it. I didn't notice much within the first few weeks. Then my acne became worse and worse. I thought it was stress related then I realized it was this product. I stopped using it 3 days ago and my skin as already improved. Also very drying.
I got this in a race kit I got and have never looked back. My skin always feels great after using it (I use it probably three times a day). It's great for my combination skin, inexpensive and available at most stores. I use this in combination with St. Ives Green Tea cleanser and my skin has always been for the most part acne free. I usually follow up with Lush Tea Tree toner and it works fantastic.
I bought the generic version of this for $1.00. I love neutrogena products, and the ingredients in the generic formula were identical to those in the neutrogena version. Well, I'm pretty sure this broke me out. Maybe the salicylic acid was too drying on my skin, and irritated it, causing it to produce extra oil. Idk. It smells really nice, and makes your skin feel super smooth, and I love cleansers with a pump because I can always get the same amount of product out, and don't waste any. I did find a good use for this though, I use it to clean m beauty blender sponge and makeup brushes! I only paid $1.00 for this, so it's completely worth it, and I'm really pleased with how well it works on my products
This product is very controversial, however for me it was really, really good!
It lathers well, cleans well, and keeps my skin very clear. It is somewhat drying but it did not irritate my skin at all, and didnt even irritate my eyes!
-__- another product chucked to the side because ...
-broke me out even more
-didn't cure any other occuring breakouts i would have them still sitting there on my face
-dryed out my face
-didn't do anything for my pore, black heads, white heads
-made my skin rough
just a pretty bad product
although it did smell nice and the texture of it made me feel clean (kinda griddy) n it foams which i like the concept but not what it does in the end (dry out your skin)
I purchased this thinking it was going to exfoliate my face and it ended up drying out my face and the skin started PEELING off! I stopped using it and now I use the Bare Minerals facial cleanser and it is about the best thing I've ever used! My skin doesn't usually dry out and peel and although it smells great I think the acid from the grapefruit in it is completely for oily skin because then it would do a better job at cleaning a face rather than drying it out. I would not recommend to someone who has sensitive, dry/normal skin.
Had the same experience with the bumps and peeling. It's awful.
Love, love, love. My skin is very sensitive, oily and acne prone and this is perfect for me. It never irritates my skin. Occasionally, if I'm not careful about moisturizing the outer part of my nostrils can get dry and peely, but that happens with pretty much anything I use. I just have to be good about applying moisturizer there and it's not a problem.
This cleanser smells fantastic and really works! It gets rid of the oily-ness of my skin without drying it out and really works on acne. I saw an improvement within the first two days of using it. My acne was visibly reduced. By far, the best acne wash I've ever used.
I'm currently on my 5th bottle of this (believe it or not lol) and love it. My skin is combo/oily and quite sensitive, and this is great for me. I've used a lot of expensive brands and tried a ton of different products, but this is pretty much the only thing that works for me. It doesn't dry my skin out, it leaves it feeling smooth and silky instead. I can't explain it, but this is a great product and I would definitely recommend this to anyone with the same skin as mine (combo/oily, sensitive, acne prone). I used to suffer from acne and have had only a few breakouts since I started using this. Love!
