Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser Review

There are some products which you know that you’ll love and there are some that do not seem to work for you how hard you may try. Today I will be sharing my experience with one such famous and raved about a product that failed to work for me. My review today, will be on ‘Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser’. Neutrogena is a famous brand and I personally love many of their products, but this particular face wash didn’t work for me the way I expected it to work.

Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser comes in a transparent plastic bottle. The smaller size of the product has a regular lid but the bigger size is provided with a pump. I bought the larger size of the product and I am glad that it has a pump.

My Experience with Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser:

I am a regular face wash user and I usually tend to try different products every time I have to repurchase face wash. My regular use includes washing my face twice, once in the morning and once before bedtime and I did the same with Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser too. I knew that I am not going to like the product since the very first time I used it.

I used the product like I would have used any other regular face wash, and I do like to see at least some lather to convince myself that my face is being cleaned. But with this particular product there was not lather whatsoever.

Also, my face started feeling extremely dry after a couple of uses. As mentioned in ‘How to Use’ section of the product, I tried using this face wash just once a day but it still made my skin feel dry. I am glad that the product didn’t break me out, but with Salisylic acid being an ingredient I can at least expect this much.

Overall Thoughts:

The product does have some positive points to it, but as a basic face wash it didn’t work for me the way I wanted. It might be good for ladies with sensitive acne prone skin, as it will not break you out, but I personally won’t buy this product again.
