I am so torn. I love the light weight non greasy feel. I love the fast absorbing and matte finish it leaves behind. I love that it doesn’t clog my pores or cause breakouts. I love that there is no overwhelming scent. It’s almost the perfect sunblock, except for this one major problem. After it dries and is absorbs into your skin, it leaves behind this obviously, noticeable white cast. It’s like I covered myself with deodorant. It’s even worse if you wear dark colored clothing because if the sunblock gets onto your clothes, the white cast will stain and be even more noticeable. The white cast problem has caused me to stop using and purchasing the sunblock. So close to finding the perfect sunblock!
Neutrogena Wave ($12.69) I was hoping this would be a cheaper version of the Clarisonic, but it is not. Not even close. The pads were rough and irritated my skin. It left my cheeks feeling a bit raw. I don’t think it cleaned my face any better than regular cleansers, and it made it worse. I found the vibrations useless. It just buzzes. The pads are dry. I had to wet the pads in order for them to foam enough. I can tell the machine itself isn’t going to last. The Neutrogena Wave came with 7 pads, but I checked the prices for the replacement pads and it’s about $8 for 30 pads. Overall, it was such a waste of money. To me, it’s useless and makes your skin worse. Just skip it.
Neutrogena Lip Moisturizer SPF 15 ($2.99) I love this lip moisturizer! I am so glad I saw this and snagged it. It’s kind of hard to find. It’s not even listed on Neutrogena’s website! If you do find it, I say stock up. It glides on so easily and effortlessly. It feels like Vaseline. It goes on clear so you don’t have to worry about a tint. Neutrogena Lip Moisturizer really does keep my lips moisturized for a few hours. Hands down the best lip moisturizer I have ever used.
Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser ($7.99) Salicylic acid acne treatment. MicroClear technology. Clears breakouts. 100% Naturally derived grapefruit extract. With an uplifting blast of grapefruit plus Vitamin C, this unique formula clears blemishes and blackheads. Eliminates oil and dirt without over-drying.
This face wash is exactly like the original, Neutrogena Acne Wash Oil-Free. It didn’t prevent breakouts, dried out my face, and did nothing for the blemishes I already had. The only difference between this and the original is the grapefruit smell. If I had to choose between pink grapefruit and the original, I would choose the pink grapefruit because it smells really good.
Neutrogena On-The-Spot Acne Treatment ($6.29) Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Treatment. Maximum strength effectiveness. Less irritation, won’t dry out skin. Touch on acne, easy on your skin. Vanishing Formula – Absorbs quickly, works invisibly. Break the breakout cycle. Some medicated spot treatments contain high levels of benzoyl peroxide that can irritate skin, causing redness and dryness which can make acne worse. Neutrogena On-the-Spot Acne Treatment has been clinically proven to provide maximum strength effectiveness in fighting acne, while being gentle to the skin. Maximum strength effectiveness with less irritation, won’t dry out skin. Neutrogena On-the-Spot Acne Treatment contains just 2.5% benzoyl peroxide, yet has been clinically proven to provide the same maximum level of effectiveness as a 10% formula, and with 70% less irritation overall. This fast working formula contains a special blend of ingredients to enhance the benzoyl peroxide’s penetration. It goes deep down in the pores to kill acne bacteria that cause pimples and helps to stop new ones from forming. Works hard to keep skin healthy-looking. Relieves redness of acne pimples and overdrying of the skin. Long-Lasting Protection – Works hour after hour to give long-lasting acne treatment.
This works for mild cases of acne. I found that if I just pat it on my blemishes instead of rubbing it in, the treatment worked a lot better. It’s not the best product out there, but it does work. It doesn’t over dry your skin. Because it does leave a bit of a white cast, I use this at night before bed.
