Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit.


 " In 2008 Neutrogena, the #1 dermatologist recommended over the counter acne brand, debuted the Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit line knowing that when consumers enjoy the sensory experience of a product they'll use it more regularly and see optimal skin results. The comprehensive line of acne care products powerfully clears breakouts and blackheads with the same effective yet gentle, acne-fighting formula as the #1 acne cleanser, Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash, with the added bonus of delivering an uplifting Pink Grapefruit scent."

The Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Cream Cleanser is the latest to join the collection offering "a rich, creamy cleansing experience without over drying".

I believe the prices range from $6-8 depending where you buy them.

  • Rinses easily, leaving skin clean, soft and refreshed- never dry or flaky.

The scent of the pink grapefruit line is delish and a great pick-me-up in the mornings.
I always get scared using a new cleanser on my face but I've been using this for a few weeks now and so far so good! My face seems to be under control and I haven't had any major breakouts which is great.

I was only using the gel cleanser but some mornings it would make my face feel dry and tight.. so I switched to using the cream cleanser in the morning and gel cleanser at night. This way my face would feel moisturized in the morning after washing. Using the gel cleanser at night helps remove all the oil, dirt, and makeup leaving my face feeling fresh.

I also have been using the foaming scrub once or twice a week. It's gentle on the skin and works pretty well but I still love my St. Ives Apricot Scrub.

Mini Lesson!!

While we're speaking of cleansers I figured I would give you guys a mini lesson.
So if you don't know.. now you know! ;)

Cream Cleansers are best suited for people with dry skin. Why? They're creamy. They have ingredients in them that help keep your face from feeling that horrible tightness after washing. You should rinse this off with a wash cloth just to make sure you haven't left any residue on your face.

For combination skin, depending on how oily or dry your face is, you can use anything from a cream cleanser to a gel cleaner.

For oily skin a gel cleanser would be best. They take away the dirt and oil without drying your face.

If your cleanser is over drying your skin then it's time to find one that's a little more gentle. 
You may think this would be good for oily skin but it's actually not. You're stripping all the natural oils from the skin making it feel dehydrated. This will only make your sebaceous glands produce more oil causing a grease fest.
Hmm I'm surprised I actually learned something in school lol.. and I hope you learned something too!
