Well, well, well. Neutrogena has always given all these claims about how good their brand is, and how its dermatologist reccommended. I've never really had success with their products. The packaging is way cute and very nice looking, that's the best part. And I've tried their Pink Grapefruit line and it smells very nice. But lets talk about this product.

I have sensetive, acneprone, dry/oily/combo skin. It is the worst skin to deal with ever. I have horrible redness, dry patches, pimples, whiteheads you name it, I've had it/got it. This product seemed really good, and the hype was ridiculous. I needed a new cleanser, one with less acne fighting ingredients because I was getting so dried out. I bought the gel cleanser and it came with a small 0.5 Redness cream cleanser to try as well. The gel smells very bad, almost like a bitter aloe. But its not horrible. There is no tingly feeling, and it does foam up but not very much. After I wash my face, it does feel dry still. I agree, it hasn't helped my acne much, which I'm not impressed with, but my redness has been reduced and its only been 4 days! So I'm enjoying this. I'm sticking with it because its not breaking me out so, why not? Like all SA 2.0% products, your pimple's "scab" will be dry when you wake up, so you'll need to exfloiate in the morning after you wash. Overall, its a good cleanser with a great packaging, and redness reducing power! Not so much acne.
