Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Scrub Oil Free Review
Neutrogena’s gentle scrub has been my favourite scrub for over an year now. It has been by my side in all ups and downs, never broke me out, never went too harsh on me, even when I used it daily. It was only until last month did my life turn topsy turvy when I couldn’t find this scrub in the market anymore! I don’t know what went wrong, but I checked at least 10 shops in over 3 cities, but it was nowhere to be seen, but then, I found this variation of the scrub, though I was hesitant to try it first, but then I gave in, there was no harm trying a cousin of my favourite scrub, right?
85 INR for 50 ml.

What the Company Says about the Product:
Microbeads gently exfoliate, beta hydroxy clean deep into the pores for soft, smooth skin.
The words ‘beta hydroxy’ and ‘oil free’ totally had me sold out . Beta hydroxy is supposed to be very good against acne . In fact, a lot of dermatologists suggest alpha and beta hydroxyl acid peels to dry out the acne.

The packaging is quite similar to the original one, the only difference is the word oil free and the description, so you might get confused thinking they are the same. In fact, I find the entire Deep clean range confusing, their foaming cleanser also looks the same, there have been times when I picked two scrubs thinking one was cleanser 😀
My Experience with Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Scrub – Oil Free:
First thing I noticed about this was that the granules in this one were bigger and I instantly thought, this would be a harsh scrub. Nevertheless, I gathered up all the courage to use it. It has a nice citrusy smell, which I completely love. When I used it for the first time, it was all good, it actually made my face stay oil free for long and I was quite impressed by it, but just when I was thinking to make it my favourite scrub and I used it for the second time, it went too harsh on my pimples and one of them started bleeding. I was so horrified and scared. Though the bleeding stopped after a while after using an antiseptic, it was the end of my love for this scrub.

Interestingly, my sister started using it after I chucked it out and she loves it. She uses it daily and she feels nothing clears her face like this scrub. She has oily-combination skin with no acne at all. So, I am guessing it would be good for people with non-problematic oily skin and the beta-hydroxy is just for oil-controlling purposes and not for drying out acne :/ Its not its fault entirely, I mean, the scrub did not say anywhere it would help with acne, but I wasn’t even accepting it to make me bleed!!

If you have acne, then you should stay far far away from it, but if you have normal-combination skin, then I think you should give it a try. We all have different skin types and they behave in enormously different ways 😉
