Hello again, guys. It hasn’t been so long since my first post which was last night, but I decided to post something new just because I am that excited (haha). Anyway, I recently purchased a new skincare product and this post is basically pretty much about that. So, read on!
Since the moment I saw Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pore & Shine Daily Wash in the store, I had been extremely anxious to try it on, as the description was exactly what I had been looking for, for my skin. My skin is usually prone to acne as well as oily, mostly in the summers, and you may or may not know but I am a huge fan of makeup. All these factors combined, make my skin pretty agitated and unattractive. So, this Neutrogena face wash is what I picked up, also due to the fact that Neutrogena has always delivered amazing products.
The wash comes in a transparent bottle filled with a great quantity of green gel that looks quite refreshing. When I first eyed the bottle, it appeared very energizing to me and another good thing is that you can always keep a check on the quantity inside because of the translucent container. It has a pump lid instead of a screw top, which is like the best thing ever because: (1) It’s far more convenient and less time-consuming to just press the pump and (2) one squeeze of the pump is enough for your whole face. The pump also has a lock-system which makes it leak-proof and easier to use while traveling. As for the packaging, it’s a thumbs up!
Now for the wash; it comes in a gel-like consistency, has a green lime-tinted color and a slight scent of tangerine and lime, as depicted on the label. It is very gentle on the skin and harmless due to the lime it contains. Also note, lemons or limes contain antibacterial properties which are helpful in preventing or treating acne (I know this because I study food DUH), so this wash is pretty great. It’s suitable for every skin type, since the properties do great for oily skin, it does not dry out skin, and the gentleness makes it right for sensitive skin. Once it is applied, it has a lathering effect rather than a soapy foam effect and I can proudly say that after each wash, my skin feels really smooth and fresh. It has a soothing effect and calms my skin very well. Oh, and I love how my skin feels when I use the wash right after removing makeup.
I’ve been using this wash only for about a week and a half and since then I haven’t had many breakouts. My skin tends to be very oily in the summer, but this Neutrogena product keeps the oiliness at bay. Also, it does not dry out my skin to the extreme which makes it very neutral for me. It doesn’t irritate my skin in any way and unclogs the pores very well. The wash is really good at removing traces of dirt and impurities, making the face squeaky clean. Usually, with other face washes, my skin goes back to being oily right after a short period of time, but with this wash, it’s totally different. It also has an excellent mattifying effect on the face that helps reveal your glow. I love this wash because it treats my skin brilliantly and if you have oily skin too, you should definitely check this out.
This product only cost me around Rs. 1000, which is affordable compared to other ones and it actually works. It’s absolutely worth buying and I must say, I was really impressed with the results. I highly recommend this to anyone that hasn’t used a Neutrogena face wash before, as well as anyone having oily skin, to give it a go. It will work wonders and trust me, you won’t be disappointed! Until next time.
