The first time I was using this was a couple of years ago and it did get rid of many pimples but it dried my skin out horribly. The second time I started using it again was a few months ago when I broke out horribly and no other cleanser worked really. This time though I bothered to read the discription on how to use it as a mask. (I know it was stupid) I did leave the mask on for 15 minutes instead of 5 so I guess this is the reason and me using this thing as a mask almost every day was the reason of the drought on my skin. All in all it is a very good cleanser for people with combo/ oily skin.

I bought this about 2 weeks ago - I have the one called "Rapid clear" so im hoping its the same one - its also a mask / cleanser duo.
I bought this as i had a sudden breakout of small, hard bumps along my hair line near the eyebrows. I knew i would need something more heavy duty than my normal cleanser to clear this up (Keihls). With the change in seasons my skin often has a freak out.
I found this to be great at helping to clear up any oily patches and pimples, it seems to stop any pimples in their tracks before they come to a head. Used as a cleanser it is refreshing and leaves the skin feeling clean but not tight. Using this product as a mask is where i got the most benefit - once i had my outbreak i used this on the problem areas only for 5 minutes 3 days in a row - might sound like a bit much but it did the trick. I also used it on my nose for a couple of days in a row and found it cleared out a few really stubborn blackheads I had which is a bonus. You may have a few slight dry patches but nothing a small amount of manual exfoliation wont fix.
This is a good option if you have sometimes-acne. I took a couple of lippies off as i wouldnt use this all year round and its a little more then i like to pay for a supermarket cleanser.I would buy again though.

I have naturally oily and hyper-sensitive skin, and when I was visiting home from University and forgot my usual facial wash, I decided to give it a try as it was on offer for only £2 in ASDA.
I've been using it regularly twice a day as a cleanser for about a week, and I'm already noticing drastic results. Due to my fair complexion (which makes me look like the love-child of Count Dracula and Rebecca Brooks), I used to be plagued by red acne scars on my face, and hormonal acne, however I've noticed that it effectively fights off my hormonal acne, and fades my scarring.
Another bonus I've noticed is the fact it's been removing my blackheads, which I could never usually get to move, even with expensive black-head removing scrubs. My skin has also been left tighter and it feels exceptionally clean after use, and I'd have to say, I love this product.
It hasn't dried out my skin (I follow with Simple's Light Moisturiser), nor have I had an allergic reaction (and considering my skin has a tendency to react badly at the slightest change, I'm really impressed.)
I'd recommend this product, and I'd definitely use it again.

Amazing, skin feels really fresh and clean after use + really reasonable price

I have very dry skin and suffer from redness, blotchy cheeks and the odd blemish. I had ventured around trying samples of more expensive cleansers and exfoliators from the likes of Clarins etc, but fell upon this as a cheap option to tide me over during a particularly 'bad skin' month.
When I first started using this my skin did feel excessively dry, small dry patches appeared but I knew that was mainly my skin adjusting to a new product as well as the cold weather dehydrating my already dry skin. I used this at least once a day if not twice, it's easy to use in the shower or at the sink for a morning/night routine. I just dampen my face, cover my face in the clay like wash, then massage the skin in circular motions focusing on places where I feel my pores are most visible - then rinse.
After a week or two I couldn't be without this product, I've already bought another tube even though I'm no where near low. My blemishes are all clearing up great and my over all redness/patchiness has pretty much gone away! My skin looks much clearer, smoother and healthier and because of this I've found my foundation sits much happier on my skin without moving or sitting in dry patches or creases in the skin.
I do recommend finding a routine to suit you best with this wash, I found with dry skin it was a struggle to find cleansers to purify my pores and get rid of blemishes without it stripping out oil and causing dryness - so combated this issue by using Body Shop's Vitamin E cream, as well as Castor Oil on an evening on my dryer areas. I've never been happier with my skin, so please give this a go!

This product is the reason I finally, after years of reading reviews on this page decided to join and write a review of my own. It is by far the best cleanser I have ever used and I have used A LOT of cleansers in my lifetime. I've got quite a problematic skin, very prone to hormonal breakouts, especially on the chin, large pores, blackheads but also quite sensitive with some dry areas. My skin reacts very easily and very angrily to most products so I have to be careful with what I use on my face. After trying literally everything from very harsh acne products to gentle and all-natural cleansers, and using a fortune along the way I was soo happy to find this product (albeit a little annoyed I didn't find it earlier as I could've saved myself a lot of prescious time and money). Oh well. But this stuff is amazing, my skin has honestly never been this clear! I use it with my clarisonic and together they work wonders keeping spots at bay. I don't even need to moisturize every night anymore because my skin just feels so much softer too. I've used this for almost 2 years now and have tried something different in between for a change a couple of times which has always resulted in breakouts. Hence the quick return to my beloved Neutrogena.

I hated this. I was looking for a clay based mask at the store and was suckered into buying it. There's nothing out there like it. It sounded like a great idea - a mask and cleanser in one! In theory, it's awesome - in execution - no thanks.
Used as a cleanser it was okay. That's why I give it two lippies. But it felt harsh on my skin - it was nice in the summer when my skin gets really oily and feels grimey at the end of the day. But I hated that tingly minty feeling it gives - sort of like there's menthol in the ingredients (maybe it's salicylic acid or a ton of alcohol? Not sure.) My skin felt very clean after use, but as a cleanser, it's much too heavy. The consistency is like a thick goopy lotion - that lathers. Kinda weird. It also takes a while to rinse off. I prefer lighter gel cleansers.
I hated using this as a mask, which is really what I bought it for. I put on a layer and it felt super gross on my face. It just stayed creamy and I prefer my masks to dry fast and dry tight. It did a good job of soaking up the oil on my face but I never knew how long to leave it on for as it doesn't dry.
It wasn't very effective on my blackheads and acne either. I used it up as a cleanser and never bought it again.

I used this product maybe a year ago, I loved it. But because I like to try out new things, I moved on. I recently bought it again and I fell back in love. It's such a refreshing sliiightly grainy cream, that really wakes you up in the mornings. Whenever my skin looked dull I used it as a mask (feels and looks like a clay mask), and after washing it off my skin felt super smooth, awake and clean. Love, love, love this!

this is holy grail stuff right here! NOTHING sorts my skin out like this, even changing to a different wash over the weekend leaves my skin looking awful. it has a weird consistency, kind of thick and creamy so doesn't lather up when you wash your face with it. but OH MAN it really does the job! unclogs my pores without turning the bumps into spots, fades spots quickly, and using it as a mask leaves my pores tight and clean. the smell is also really pleasant and clean. if you have problems with acne and oiliness, this is the wash for you! :)

For over a year I have been under a reasonable amount of stress, like most of the planet, however since May this year my skin has broken out like it never has before. Wow I didn't know stress could visually affect your face.....
Anyhoo, after doing a lot of research of ingredients and realising there isn't a lot of difference between the more expensive brands and some drug store ones...
I thought I would try a clay based cleanser. the first one I tried was the new clearasil vitamins mask n wash, LOVE IT. good things do not last forever and I had to replace & they had sold out at my local dealer. Enter Neutrogena's 2 n 1 wash n mask.
Using London water, this stuff dries my skin out like a mo-fo. The menthol scent is way too strong and I can understand why it is in the formula so give that cooling sensation, but damn its harsh. It is also difficult to rinse off as well....
So use with caution. You have been warned.
