Hello IMBB Beauties! Today I’m reviewing Neutrogena Deep Clean foaming cleanser. My skin is a constant source of trouble for me. When I first started having breakouts and I realized I need to start using products meant for my skin type, I switched to tea tree oil products after reading so much about them. While they helped over time, my skin started getting dryer and more lifeless while the occasional breakouts continued. I switched to other products for normal skin and my skin improved a bit. I tried a lot of face washes but most of them, while they gave me clean bright look, did not cleanse my clogged pores. I was looking for a face wash that would remove all traces of dirt, oil etc from my face while deep cleansing the pores. Having heard so much about Neutrogena face washes for oily acne prone skin, I purchased this face wash. Here’s the review-
Price: Rs 85
Quantity: 50 g (comes in a larger tube also)
What the packaging says about the product
• Oil free
• Non- comodogenic
• Dermatologically tested
Through cleansing with long-lasting oil control for the deepest feeling clean.
Neutrogena is a refreshing facial cleanser that thoroughly removes dirt, oil and dead skin cells while providing long lasting oil control to improve the look and feel of skin. This clean-rinsing cleanser lathers to a rich creamy foam that dissolves and washes away oil, dirt and skin-dulling impurities that can build up in pores. Oil control formula helps reduce surface oil to keep skin fresh. Skin feels completely clean and refreshed, soft and smooth.
My experience: This face wash comes in a white tube packaging with a flip cap. The cap fits in tightly to there is no danger of spillage. The product however starts accumulating at the mouth as is the case with most products with flip cap packaging. The product itself is pearly white in colour and has a creamy consistency. The look and consistency actually reminded me of shaving cream. A very small amount of product produces enough lather to cover entire face and neck. It has a mild refreshing fragrance that I really liked it.
From the description given on the packaging, it sounded perfect- deep cleansing, refreshing and oil controlling while improving look and feel of the skin. Unfortunately though, this did not suit my skin at all. The fragrance and lather was quite refreshing but the formula is too drying. It strips the skin of all oils leaving a very dry stretchy feeling. On wiping my face after washing with it, the dry patches around my mouth and nose looked very prominent and I had to use a lot of moisturizer to make my skin look normal and hydrated. I do however like the clean feeling I get after using this face wash. Because of its drying and oil stripping formula, it also dries out some small tiny pimples. I feel it should be mentioned on the packaging that its meant for very oily skin.

CONs of Neutrogena Deep Clean Foaming Cleanser
1. Product tends to accumulate at the mouth of the tube in the flip cap
2. Formula is too drying – skin feels stretchy and dry after washing.
3. Doesn’t remove waterproof makeup easily.
4. It should be mentioned on the packaging that it is meant for very oily skin.
Overall verdict : The tube packaging is sturdy, hygienic and travel friendly. It has a refreshing fragrance and deep cleansing action that removes all dirt and oil from face giving a clean feeling also drying out small pimples. Very little product produces a lot of lather and thus will last a long time. The formula however was too drying for my normal/oily skin and made my skin stretchy and dry. It did not suit me but would suit very oily skinned people perfectly.
Rating : 3.75/5
Will I repurchase : No, unless my skin becomes very very oily.
