Cleansers - Neutrogena - Extra Gentle Cleanser [DISCONTINUED]

This is a gentle, creamy cleanser for sensitive, dry skin that isn't stripping and doesn't break me out. It doesn't leave any greasy residue. It's not really that great at cleansing though - even if I'm not wearing makeup, there's a bit too much gunk left on my toner pad after using this if my skin is genuinely dirty. Best for use in the morning.

I bought this when the value of the Canadian dollar plummeted deep, down into the depths of the earth, and I could not longer afford my beloved Paula's Choice 2% BHA liquid, possibly the best skin care product for acne ever invented. Does it work? Yes. It exfoliates and unblocks pores. Does it burn like a mofo? Yes. (To be fair, I have really sensitive skin.) After several seconds of pain …Read more

Pros:
Moisturising
Doesn't irritate my sensitive skin
Absorbs quickly
Doesn't smell nearly as bad as the day cream from the same line
No breakouts

Cons:
Like the day cream, this does leave a greasy-looking finish, though in a night cream that's not such a big deal.

Pros:
Doesn't irritate my sensitive skin.
Doesn't break me out.
Not that expensive.

Cons:
Smeeeellls baaaaaad. Like really bad. It has a strong, gross plasticky smell that fortunately fades quite quickly, but is gag inducing on first application.
Absorbs quickly enough but leaves a greasy-looking finish - I get major forehead shine with this cream …

Love this. I have really thin, fine hair that historically has been quite dry, and has recently gotten oilier. When I had dry hair this made my hair soft and bouncy without weighing it down. Since it's quite moisturising and does add shine, I no longer use it if I'm having an oily hair day, but if I've used a clarifying or stripping shampoo, one dose of this restores my hair to …Read more

Feb/23/2016

This is a gentle, moisturising shampoo that is great for when my hair is on the dry side. Does exactly what it says - adds shine and a bit of bounce without weighing hair down. I seem to have the opposite experience of most reviewers in that this is a moisturising shampoo for me - when my hair is a bit oily I can't use it without it weighing my hair down. I've never found it to be …Read more

Yeah, to add to the chorus: I'm just not sure this product really does anything. It doesn't irritate my skin, but it's not that moisturising, and my skin basically just looks and feels the same after I use it. I'd get better results just by applying a good night cream.

This is a gentle, moisturising conditioner that added shine without weighing down my dry hair. I didn't notice that it helped with my hair loss or gave more volume though, so I can't say that it performed as advertised. As a general-purpose shampoo for dry-ish hair though it's totally worth a try.
