I've been using this product for a couple of weeks and I've enjoyed it very much. It has actually kept my oily skin clear. It cleans all of my makeup without leaving any mascara or eyeliner left over (I don't wear waterproof makeup) and it doesn't dry out my skin. However 6oz costs about $7-$8 which is a bit pricey for a drugstore face wash.
I'm really pleased with this product. I use a DIY oil mixture to remove my makeup and I use this a second step to clean everything off. It is gentle, has a pleasant smell and does a great job rinsing everything off. I'm pretty sure this is going to be a staple in my routine.
Leaves my skin feeling tight, doesn't foam as well as I'd like, can't comment much on how well it helps with breakouts. Burns my eyes so much! Also, tastes horrible. I know it's a facial cleanser, not meant for my eyes or taste buds, but getting it in those areas is inevitable when using my Clarisonic. Wouldn't buy again.
really bad cleanser..after using this product it burned my face!!! my face was soo red and it felt hot && it also left my face feeling really dry..omgg never buying this again!
I'm surprised this product has so many bad reviews. I've been using it for about a year now and I love this stuff! It gets my skin clean without drying it out and I rarely break out anymore. I have sensitive skin and this doesn't seem to aggravate it at all. The only thing that I don't like about it is that it has an added fragrance.
I really wish I had been smart and asked/read around about this product. It clogged my pores like crazy. Not good for someone who already has really dry skin. I got these really weird bumps and they were really difficult to cover. I really expected more :(
In the grand scheme of things, I have pretty decent skin, but I do suffer from some spot stress acne and redness. I've also really hated my skins texture since moving to Arizona. It's so dry here and riding my bike/walking/running has really taken a toll on my skin because of the air pollution and lack of any moisture whatsoever.
I've tried pretty much every drugstore and even some mid-range facial cleansers and out of every single one, this one has had the best effect on my skin. It definitely clarifies my skin and removes all of my makeup/impurities but my skin doesn't have that uncomfortable tight dry feeling afterwards. I've been using this cleanser for about a month and a a half and I've seen incredible improvement in my skin's texture, pigmentation and complexion. I've paired it with other products, but I really really enjoy this cleanser.
Every morning and evening, I take one pump, dab a bit on my forehead, nose, cheeks and chin and I gently massage it with the little scrubby that came with the Loreal Go 360 clean cleansers. I know a lot of it has to do with the ingredients, but I really appreciate the fact that Neutrogena is trying to create natural skincare products without a ton of crap in them. Makes me feel less inclined to resort to sketchy asian brands from overseas.
For a few months now, I've had this strange eczema-like dry patch on my face. This is something that has never happened to me before, and I assumed it was something associated with stress, aging, and a change in weather. But no matter what I did (using heavy creams, decreasing the amount of times I wash my face, etc.), it wouldn't go away. It didn't even look like it was attempting to get better. So, the other day, out of curiosity, I checked out the reviews here for this cleanser. I could kick myself for not doing that months ago! All the warnings about allergic reactions really hit a chord with me. I used the cleanser one last time that evening, just to see, and that slight "tingling" sensation I had always associated with the product "working" I realized finally that it was actually just some burning I felt due to my sensitive skin. I immediately stopped using this cleanser and switched to a standby supply of Cetaphil. I didn't change anything else in my routine, but within a day, I already noticed a difference.
I was looking for a cheaper alternative to my favorite Boscia products and came across this product at my local Target. I was hoping this would be a perfect dupe to Boscia's Purifying Cleansing Gel. I'm upset that I wasn't able to figure out that I was wrong until just now. Those of you with sensitive skin, please think twice before spending your money on this line of Neutrogena products.
The worst face wash that I ever used. Just like others have said it gave me an extreme allergic reaction. About a week of using it I developed horrible breakouts all over. I am half way through the bottle but can longer continue to use it. My face has never been this bad. Not only do I have clusters of tiny bumps that look like a rash, but it gave me dry flaky skin underneath my eyes. I was lured in by the "natural ingredients" and a coupon. I am so upset, and hoping my face gets back to normal asap.
Back in college (more than a decade ago), I loved J&J Purpose cleanser for my sensitive, oily, acne-prone skin, and this Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser reminds me a lot of Purpose, but with more natural ingredients. My skin is much less oily than it was in college, though it is still sensitive and acne prone. This cleanser does clean well (and removes my makeup), but I find it too drying for my mid-30s skin. I'm finishing my bottle by using it as a body wash.
