I know this is an unpopular product but I've tried so many cleansers over the years and I keep coming back to this one every single time. I've repurchased over and over. Every other cleanser has a weird smell, feel, or doesn't make my face feel clean.

So, I ran out of my usual cleanser, deep clean facial cleanser by neutrogena and my mom bought me this because she couldn't find the other one. I hated it, it made my face feel weird and I'll never use it again. It caused more acne too.

this may be acne free for some people but not for me. It made my skin dry and it broke out

Some people seem to dislike it very much and some seem to like it. I bought this product a few days ago to replace another cleanser that I disliked and I have to say that I like it so far. It is very easy to use and it doesn't smell bad. I have noticed that my skin looks nice after I washed it. I only use it once a day and ALWAYS moisturize after using it so that my skin won't get dry. I would not recommend it to people with sensitive skin or dry skin.

This product is literally a nightmare in a bottle. I know it seems dramatic but my skin had the worst reaction to this wash. I picked it up because I was looking for an inexpensive face wash to take with me on vacation. I washed my face one time with this product, before i went to bed, and when I woke up my face was red and blotchy and I had a burning itchy sensation all over my face. My entire life I've had pretty good skin, except for the occasional blemish during that time of the month, the texture of my skin has always been very soft and smooth and after one use of this product my skin texture is bumpy and dry. I'm very careful when it comes to taking care of my skin. I've used other Neutrogena products and they've worked just fine so i thought this product would work well too, but this was terrible. It might work for other girls and guys out there but for me this was just the worst thing I ever put on my face.

I couldn't give it zero stars, otherwise I would! I had a horrific reaction to this face wash. Even though I have relatively clear skin, my face was feelings a little bumpy so I thought I might try something a little more intense then my usual neutrogena foaming face wash. I used it for about 4 days only at night time and my face broke out in dozens of tiny whiteheads. I looked like I had a disease, they were itchy and painful and my face was swollen. I have no idea what I was allergic to because it def wasn't the SA, I've used that before. The only spot that didn't break out was my nose because thats the oiliest part of my face. Beware when using this!!

Okay so first I'm gonna start by saying this is the worst product I've even used on my face. I bought this on a Saturday morning from Walmart in the travel size section. I used it around 12 that afternoon, afterwards I didn't really notice anything other than my face felt clean/dry. I used it again later that night to take my makeup off. When I woke up Sunday morning my face was so irritated & itchy & slightly swollen I think but I didn't really think much of it until I did my makeup. My makeup looked horrible! That evening I took my makeup off RIGHT when I got home using my aveeno cleanser. When I looked in the mirror my face was covered in tiny little bumps and was so red & blotchy & was itching sooo bad! It's still itching while I'm writing this. I do NOT have sensitive skin at all & my skin is quite normal. I am so disappointed my face has NEVER looked like this even my mom noticed how blotchy my makeup was because of this product. Please do not buy this if you have normal skin, I think this is for people who have really oily acne prone skin which I do not have.

I want to try a new face wash and so I picked this one up. The first night I tried it, I was so excited because my skin felt so smooth. I used it again the next morning and by the night time, my skin was completely dried out! I became flakey and was applying moisturizer like no other! I immediately stopped using it and went into skin recovery for a week. I went back to my go-to clean and clear morning burst. It does the job and leaves my skin feeling refreshed. Shame on me for turning my back on what never let me down!
