Neutrogena Fine Fairness Cleanser Review

A nice cleanser is very important for me, as it is for everyone. My combination skin tends to become dark and crusty if it doesn’t get a suitable cleanser. For a long time I was hooked to Ponds Flawless White but as all these new-new products that keep coming up in the market with their fairytale claims, experimenting is a must.

One such experiment was Neutrogena Fine Fairness Cleanser which was not used by me much. I thought of writing a review about it as brand Neutrogena is big and I wanted to share my experience with you all here.

What : Neutrogena Fine Fairness Cleanser

Price: I don’t remember exactly.

Quantity : 100 G

Product Claim
Neutrogena Fine Fairness Cleanser is a purifying cleanser that thoroughly removes impurities to help improve overall fairness and translucence.

• Contains Vitamin C and proven skin lighteners that help improve fairness and translucence. Essential Soy, an exclusive soybean extract is known to improve fairness and clarity of the skin.
• Effectively cleanses to improve skin clarity. Rich, creamy foam gently lifts away dirt, surface oil, and skin-dulling dead skin cells while maintaining the skin’s natural moisture level.

Dermatologist tested formula is

• Oil-Free
• Non-comedogenic
• Allergy-tested

(Information taken from the back of the tube)

My experience with the Product
First Impression
• I bought this from Big-bazaar where Neutrogena Products were on a separate display and with an aggressive SA.
• All the product of this range has white packaging. The cleanser comes in white tube with a good dose of Chinese like language, perhaps it is Korean as the product is made in Korea.

• Vitamin C & Soy as ingredients was impressive as my skin love Vitamin-C and Soy was new for me.
• There isn’t any mention of as to what skin type the product is good for, so I thought maybe all skin types (big mistake).

During Application


• It’s a cream kind of cleanser. Its colour is slightly yellow-cream, which is certainly not flattering.
• It doesn’t foam easily; I have to rub it on my hands to make foam.
• It badly stings my eyes even if just a little product gets into my eyes.
• It has a mild fragrance that is just O.K.
• After wash my face is as good as my face with plain water wash!!!
• No Brightness-No oil reduction- No clean feel.

Post Application
• After only two-three my skin was dark but I was still using it as this was a new up-market product. But when my friend asked me why I was looking so dark? Then I had to stop using it.
• My face become like I had started swimming in a pool with high chlorine content.
Pros of Neutrogena Fine Fairness Cleanser
• There’s none in fact it is the worst cleanser/ face wash that I have ever used. In fact I wonder whether it will suit any skin types. Please comment and tell if it had worked well for any one at IMBB, maybe it’s not suitable for Indian climate & skin.

Cons of Neutrogena Fine Fairness Cleanser
• There is not any difference after a face wash with this.
• Doesn’t brighten up face.
• No clean feeling after wash.
• With regular use it forms a dark-layer.
• Its cream base not foam base: but that is a personal preference.
• Contains different kind of Paraben- Mrthylparaben, Ethylparaben, Butylparaben, Propyparaben, and Isobutyparaben.

Final Verdict
A total waste of money kind of product, one more disappointment from Neutrogena as I also didn’t liked their sunscreen.

Not to anyone.

Will I buy it again
