I know alot of people don't like Neutrogena cleansers in general but this is my HG cleanser. I have had adult acne for years. A dermatologist I saw many years ago recommended Neutrogena cleansers. I have tried many other cleansers over the years because I get tired of using the same thing all the time but I learned the hard way to stick with this cleanser. It clears up my face quickly from the other cleansers I try that don't keep my acne at bay, and it keeps my skin beautiful, clear, and smooth when I use it regularly. It doesn't dry out my maturing skin either. The only drawback is the ugly packaging. Orange liquid cleanser in a clear bottle. Yuck. I'm a sucker for a pretty package which is why I'm tempted to try new things but the effectiveness of this cleanser makes the packaging easier to ignore. This is one product I am not going to try switching anymore.

This is a great cleanser for my combination skin in the summer months. It's very foamy and does a great job of clearing the excess oil off my skin. It's too drying for winter use though. A little goes a long way. A bottle lasts me 2 summers.

I had an awful experience with this product. It smells awful and left my skin SO dry. It's really harsh, and overpriced. I would not recomend this product!

I have never dared try Neutrogena cleanser before, fearing it would be too harsh. The products I was using weren't working though, so I decided to give it a try one day because everyone I know who uses Neutrogena has perfect, flawless skin. I am very pleased with it so far. Even though my skin usually reacts badly to these things I haven't had any irritations. I use it with the Skin Clearing moisturiser.

Overall I had a pretty neutral experience with this product. I used it this summer after moving to the beach where the humidity is fierce. It removed my makeup well. My face was a tad tight after washing but would be back to normal in about 15 minutes, which really suprised me after reading about some horror stories. I have sensitive combo skin that is on the oilier side in summer and drier side in winter. It didn't seem to improve my skin at all though. I would purchase again for humid sumer days if I can't find anything better before next summer.

I have been using this for over 5 yrs on and off (been switching around other brands as well). While it didnt really stop my pimple problem completely, i dont think it has actually cause me breakout so far. It actually worked for a bit, but result doesnt last long. Usually if I stopped use this for a long time and come back again.. then I would see clear result right away. But if I keep using this for months, then I really dont see much different other than new pimples pop up once a while. I usually use 1 plump only when washing face, but the newest bottle that I got seems like doesnt "make" too much bubbles on my face at all, so I need to plump like 2 to 3 times till I think it is actually enough. But something I do noticed is this cleaner doesnt really clean much actually. I have tried to use it to remove makeup, though it didnt work. Now after I put it on my face, messaging around to make more bubble, I then would add scrub on my face as well to work both together at the same time and then raise my face with warm water. I found this actually work a bit better on my skin. But anyway, I'm gonna switch to another brand again after I'm done with this tube :D

This was a horrible product. I believe it made me break out even more, and it definitely dried my skin out terribly. Will definitely not repurchase.

I tried this product about 2 years ago, when I was quite clueless about skincare. This stuff dries your skin out like MAD, and it makes your face so dry it itches and feels like its going to crack! Not a good cleanser!

This facewash is one of only two products I use to keep my face looking great. I have slightly oily skin, and I don't ever break out anymore. My skin's tone looks fantastic. I wash my face once a day and that's it!
