Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Daily Scrub

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Daily Scrub

I have never had good experiences with Neutrogena products. Some of my friends though seem to find them good. I have used their scrubs and face washes earlier and was not impressed and so I steered clear of Neutrogena for a long time. However, a while back, when out shopping, I saw this daily scrub from Neutrogena. The bubble gum pink tube pulled me towards it like a magnet and in spite of my head telling me to stay clear of it, I went ahead and picked it up. A big mistake 🙁

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Daily Scrub

The daily scrub has a light pink colour and a very fine grainy texture. The scrub is very fine and is moderately good at scrubbing or exfoliating. It did not lather up well and after washing it off, my skin felt a wee bit tight. The smell is gorgeous (I love grapefruits); however, that’s the only good thing about it.

The scrub is supposed to clean your skin and unclog pores and also protect and prevent blemishes and spots from cropping up, but this one did nothing of that, instead it broke me out real bad after the first use. I got the biggest flare up ever on my cheek. I was aghast. I mean how did it pop up out of nowhere. There was no sign of it before that. It took a good 3-4 days to subside.

I did not use the scrub again, but then a couple of days back, I thought I will give it one more go. Maybe the flare up was due to some other reason. Another mistake, it broke me out again and this time, I have only myself to blame. I should have just avoided the scrub but instead gave it the benefit of doubt.

I am not going to touch the scrub again. My friend who loves Neutrogena is happy to take it off my hands and I am glad to get rid of it.

  1. Dee….so bad it didn’t work for you….I was just going through the ingredients list and it has listed alcohol three times there :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: maybe that can be a factor…. thanks for the review :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes:

    1. Could be the reason Jomol.
      I have used many alcohol based products earlier but none did this to me.
      Am not sure what is the culprit in this case…but its enough to put me off this brand for a long time

      1. Dee….yeah….something else might be the culprit :hunterwali: …..usually something with alcohol reacts badly on my skin….that’s why I was thinking….I think Ritika had also mentioned that another variant of neutrogena scrub had broken her out…if i remember correctly 😐

  2. Nice review Dee…I also had a half used tube and was going to review it ….it didnt work for me either …it didnt break me out but made my oily skin almost very dry… :spank:

    The area around my lips became so dry they almost flaked… i wouldnt recommend this either

  3. the only thing that has probably work from neutrogena for me is their spf 50 sunscreen. other than that nothing else that I have tried has possibly worked for me from the brand. :(( i just liked how pretty it looks. :))

  4. Yes Rati…that neutrogena one is the best sunscreen that i have used…its super light, does not cause grease on my face, and protects me from tanning :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

  5. hey…i have had similar experience with all neutrogena products dee…so much so that i always think of pimples and dry, bad skin as soon as i see them :stars: :stars: :stars:

    good review dear!!

  6. It’s a pity this didn’ work for ya Dee. 🙁 And the ingredients list is pretty scary too. :chewnails
    :thanks: for reviewing it!

  7. For a holy horror like this product, they sure made the tube look insanely tempting. :silly: Even a certified Neutrogena hater like me can’t help drooling at its prettiness. :drool: Too bad it didn’t work for you, Dee. I’ve never really heard any good reviews of this brand except for the sunblock. :hunterwali:

  8. The only product I’ve tried from this brand is their lip balm, which is one of the BEST lipbalms I’ve used so far! I’ve always wanted to try out more of their products. But now I guess I’m glad I haven’t! 😛

  9. Thanks Dee for saving us from such a bad product.. :spank: :spank: :spank:
    i hate the brands when they work only on the looks of the product and lure customers.. but the product in itself such a dud.. :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali:

  10. Best products from Neutrogena are unfortunately not available in India. Their Norwegian range of lip balms, hand and foot creams are amazing, you can get rid of dry skin in one application. Also their Triple Moisture hair care products are great for dry hair.

  11. I’m in South Africa and I really wish I’d read reviews like Dee’s before buying and using the product. I’m so angry, frustrated and dissapointed. Why haven’t they pulled it off the shelves? It’s clearly not working for anyone. Really sad. My face has breakouts now. What can I use to heal my skin back to its norm?
