Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2 in 1 Wash & Mask Review

Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2 in 1 Wash & Mask Review

I ran out of my old cleanser & decided I needed something new for my skin. That’s when I discovered this product. It launched here just around 2 months back though it was launched in other places a good 2 years back!!! Obviously the thing that really caught my eye was 2 in1 face wash N& mask. How super cool is that? With the rapid improvement of everyday technology, the next thing we know they may create 2 in 1 body lotion & wash 😛 But must say, Neutrogena made a really smart move by patenting this Microclear Technology. This product from Neutrogena Visibly Clear Everyday Cleansing Range. The others are Spot Fighting, Oil- free & Blackhead Eliminating ranges.

What Neutrogena says about Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2 in 1 Wash & Mask?
This unique formula with Microclear technology helps to keep skin beautifully clear in two ways. Use as a daily wash to effectively remove dirt, oil and impurities and help reduce and prevent spots or as a weekly mask to absorb excess oil and unclog pores to purify the skin deep down.

Quantity: 150 ml
Price: 38 Dhs (around $10)

My Experience with Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2 in 1 Wash & Mask:-

As a Wash
How to use it? Apply onto wet face and massage into foamy lather. Used daily, it efficiently cleanses skin, and helps reduce and prevent spots.

It has a really nice consistency which is quite thick. Some may probably not like it since it will take lots of water to actually wash it out completely from one’s face but I like it since it’s not at all runny like the other daily washes I have used. I have been using it daily for quite sometime and I do see few improvements. I don’t really have spots as such so can’t say if it really removes them but it does make my really rough skin super smooth. I have a combination skin which is more on the drier side. It does control the oil secretion from my skin without drying it out completely. However I must warn you that it probably might not work for people with a sensitive skin causing them breakouts (saying from my sis’s experience). It leaves my skin completely clean & refreshed, exactly the way I would want it in the mornings.

As a Mask

How to use it? Smooth a thin layer over face, and leave it for 5 minutes. The clay-based formula unclogs pores.

Unlike the wash, this mask when applied has very thin clay like consistency. This might be good for oily skinned people. But unfortunately, it’s kind of a disadvantage for us dried skinned ladies as it kind of stretches & pulls the skin initially. However, it gets fine after almost 1 -2 mins of application. I keep the mask for more than 5 mins for as long as 15 mins and it still does not dry out my skin which is amazinggg!! It did unclog my pores but normally after 1 day they used to resurface which is quite annoying.

What I like about Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2 in 1 Wash & Mask?

  • It has a very light but pleasant fragrance.
  • Did not cause my skin to breakout.
  • Works as a great cleanser leaving a tingly feeling after usage
  • Did not dry my skin which is why I think it would be perfect for winters as well
  • Even though, there is an acne prone range of Visibly Clear, this would work in clearing spots for acne prone skin as well to a certain extent because of the presence of salicylic acid.
  • Because of its dual ways of usage, it will definitely save space in case of travelling
  • Quite reasonable. I heard in some places of US it retails for as cheap as $2!!
  • The packaging is pretty attractive.

What I don’t like about Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2 in 1 Wash & Mask?

  • As mentioned above this 2 in 1 wash & mask cannot be used by people having a sensitive skin I guess due to the presence of loads of harsh chemicals.
  • Temporary results since pores resurface after a while
  • Contains parabens

My Ratings:- :star: :star: :star:

  1. Never seen this on shelves.. Would be interesting to try… :-/ :-))

    And btw, in-shower creams are already a rage… 😛

  2. I love using this product cause it makes my skin feel so cool and refreshed.
    Smells great and the whole mask/wash thing is pretty cool…right?
    I don’t think it lives up to promises of clear skin, didn’t for me at least. And you’re right about it not being for people with sensitive skin.
    Nice to see this review on here…thanks Insiya 🙂 :))

    1. Yes i totally agree it has a great smell leaving you cool & refreshed 🙂
      It does clear my skin but just for a few hours 🙁 I’ll end up having a mid day crisis realizing my spots have resurfaced !!!
      Welcome Devie :-))

  3. I am using it already.. Bought it when i was in Germany. I like the cooling effect, but apart from that donno what else is it doing to my face. They gave this alcohol based cleansing water too with this..and it has so strong sensation on my face that after a couple of times I have simply stopped using it!! 😐

    1. the cleansing water is from this range? I know neutrogena cleansers are way too strong. Initially even they used to sting me but now its become fine 🙂

  4. i have never tried their range, i have sensitive skin, and Insiya you saved moi and until i check other reviews , i should rethink 🙂 am happy wt tbs and st.ives 🙂

    1. if your have sensitive skin i would advise you to stay away from all the Neutrogena products as most of them end up reacting on sensitive skin types.

  5. so.. you put it on as a mask.. then after 15 minutes or so wash it off… and it lathers.. ?? sorry my brain is not working today ?:-) ?:-) ?:-) .. 😕 😕
    oh and oriflame , olay are some brands that do in shower lotions. 😛 there are more.. but these came to my mind now!!:P

    1. lol ikky u so funny 😛
      how will it lather after washing ??
      basically it works as a face wash & a mask. u use it like a normal face wash. As for the mask just put it on the skin, then after 5-15 mins wash it off.omg i had no idea in shower lotions actually existed !!

  6. other than hair care products, i use tbs and other herbal things for me, even my friend said Neutrogena doesnt work for her (she has combination skin – T zone oily nd rest dry)… u saved me some bad skin day too :-*

  7. Every time I apply this mask, it starts a burning sensation in me that settles only after a while of washing? The mask leaves my skin clean for a an hour or so and then its back to square one.

  8. When i say Dhs.. i was like 😮 U.A.E ???????? yayyyyyyyyyy …! so happy i found ur reviews ! lookin forward to many mre 😀 😀
    My sis had this sittin around at home and i never tried it.. gave it a shot today after reading ur review..!!! Loveee it 😀 😀
