Honest reviews


Excellent for acne; can be diluted to save money

There are a number of 2% salicylic acid facial wash products out there and they all work the same. For me, these products work very well provided that I only use them once per day (and occasionally skip a day). More frequent use makes my face red and “wind chapped” feeling.Although store brands are cheaper, I buy the Neutrogena brand since it is the thickest by far. I either dilute it down by adding water (which also makes it easier to dispense) or just use a tiny amount and it still provides the face-clearing benefit I’m looking for. 6 ounces of Neutrogena will outlast 10 ounces of the store brands.Some people are very sensitive to salicylic acid, so you’ll want to test this out carefully before stocking up. For me it works great!

Great for mild acne and sensitive skin

I can only speak to the efficacy of this product on my skin type, which is pretty low-maintenance. I wash my face every day, use an astringent once a day, and I use anti-aging lotion and serum. It’s probably a lot of overkill, but I am big on preventing wrinkles (starting early is best!). Anyway, I do get some very mild acne, maybe one or two blemishes a month. Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash is not overdrying and is also effective against my mild acne. I think it’s a great product to use in a general skincare regimen, but it may not be strong enough for those with more than moderate acne.

Neutrogena Products Rock!

Neutrogena original face wash is perfect for sensitive skin. It does not leave your face oily nor does it leave your face dry. Match it will the Neutrogena Rapid 2-in-1 Toner and together they work like a charm.

Great smell, no reactions, nice cleanser

I got this to resolve this mysterious acne problem, which may or may not even be acne, but alas, I had to try Neurogena, at the recommendation of so many others. I really like this cleanser, I love the delicious smell, it feels nice, it foams up really well and it doesn’t burn or itch or make my skin react at all – it finishes nicely and it’s great. I just don’t have any comments where the acne recovery or prevention is concerned.

Acne at 30-something? Really?!?

This is one of the best face washes I’ve ever used. It smells good AND it’s great at tackling my occasional breakouts (and, yes, to my dismay I still somehow manage to break out occasionally, despite being well past acne-appropriate age) – and also does a great job at preventing breakouts.

Wonderful Soap

I have suffered from small acne all thru my 20s, esp during my menstral cycle. Im 30 yrs old and have dry skin mostly. I came upon this face wash, and within 1 week, my acne cleared up 80%. I wear heavy makeup daily for work, and wash my face every night before bed. This soap really takes the makeup off well, makes my skin feel fresh and it can breathe. I apply the Oil Free Neut Moisturizer ( sensitive skin) as a moisturizer as well every morning and night. That works great too! Im so happy with this product. It can be over drying, thats why its so important to use a moisturizer afterwards!! Thanks Neutrogena!

Exfoliates perfectly

I use this with the olay pro-x swiveling brush thingy. My face feels fresh in less than a minute of scrubbing. I love the ingredients and gel consistency. It lathers a bunch so be careful with your eyes! This acne wash has been here since I was a baby, and I doubt its going anywhere. I don’t have acne, just oily skin on my T-zone. Anytime I see a blackhead forming I use this with the brush and let it work on my face for 30 seconds and poof! its gone.

A Sensative Skin Must Have

love this facial wash, I have been buying this product for my daughter for years. I ran out of my old faithful "Cetaphile" and decided to try this one. I have very sensitive skin and I was skeptical about trying this product but I have to say was so pleased with the result that I ordered another one for myself. Wonderful product not mad at it at all.
