It’s been 2 weeks since I’ve started using the Neutrogena new Visibly Clear Pore & Shine Cleansers and I am pleased to report that they are BOTH excellent products!
I have actually been using both at the same time. One for my morning skincare routine and the other one in the evening.
I’ve been experiencing quite a few breakouts in the last couple of months. Not major ones, just little micro-cysts & small pimples which have been driving me nuts. I was therefore looking to take my skincare regimen back to basics and those 2 cleansers have helped me just do that.
Read on for my take on those 2 newly adopted facial soaps!
Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pore & Shine Daily Wash: a freshly scented gel-like texture which applies really well (1 pump is enough for the whole face) and dissolves gunk/impurities acquired overnight, leaving the skin re-energised (it’s quite citrus-y!) and feeling clean. No drying effect. A very simple yet great cleansing gel, easy to adopt and fit into a routine.
For my particular skin type and to rid it of any blemishes, I will eventually go back to my original Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser which I find just works that much better for me. But if I do manage to clear up my skin I will certainly use this one again!
Neutrogena Pore & Shine Daily Scrub – I’ve used this one in the evening to give my skin a good scrub and eliminate any traces of that day’s make-up & gunk.
Again, a lovely citrus-y scent and a very soft texture. The exfoliating beads aren’t too harsh so won’t leave your skin looking red & bothered…. An OK product I guess. I have however been using another cleanser/make-up remover and made sure I’ve double-cleansed my skin as I find it doesn’t quite work through ALL of my make-up if I’ve been wearing heavy foundation for example. I therefore apply some of my Dermalogica Pre-Cleanse oil to break it all down, rinse it off THEN use the Daily Scrub to clean my skin a second time.
I do however find it leaves it all soft. No sign of any dryness. I was at one point a bit concerned it might be a bit too much to use it everyday but so far my skin has reacted pretty well to it so I shall keep on using that one :)!
Have you guys used any of these products? What do you think?!
