In Detail Neutrogena Visibly Clear Gentle Exfoliating Wash Review, Swatches and My Experience
The product comes in a huge plastic tube with a white flip open cap. The product is transparent but slightly white gel with blue particles. I wont call it beads because they aren’t round. Medium consistency gel, not too thick not too runny. It has a slight chemical smell to it if you take a waft.
How I Use it
I got the 150 mL tube but it has been with me forever. I have been using it for the past 6 months. You only need a little bit per usage. Massage onto wet face, I take my time and massage using circular motions all the way down to my neck. I have combination skin with oily t-zone. I Massage in for about a minute concentrating on my problem areas and rinse off. The wash lathers up just fine.
It is a gentle exfoliator as well, not as harsh as a scrub. This is easy to rinse off unlike most face washes, which are so hard to get rid off even after rinsing my face thrice.
Pat dry with a towel. This does what it claims, leaves skin soft, smooth and visibly clear. Supple and healthy looking skin afterwards, just after one wash. Therefore, this has been my go to face wash.
I had no problem using this in summers, you can use this on a daily basis, even twice a day as it suggests if you have oily skin. Upon using this in winters, I notice dry, flaky skin around my nose and chin and between the eyebrows. So, I have to follow up with a good moisturiser immediately as my skin feels over dried and tight, stretchy in those areas.
I have not experienced spot reduction or anything but that might be because I don’t use it as often as it is recommended. It tells you to use it twice daily, but that’s too much for my skin, I don’t want to over clean/over dry it. I only use this once in two days or sometimes juts once a day, because of how drying it is. Because, I don’t need deep cleansing 2 times a day.
I wish the formula was directed towards a particular skin type, like normal to dry, combination etc . So far, I have been using it for 6 months now but there is no difference in the spots and pimples that appear in my problem areas like on the sides of my nose. No reduction in blackheads whatsoever. Slightly disappointed as I was expecting a little more from the brand.
I wont be purchasing this again after I run out of this tube. Would recommend this for someone with very oily skin or go ahead and give it a try if you plan on using it on a weekly basis, its great for that.
