This cleanser proved to be a little too strong for my sensitive skin. It did do a nice job of controlling the oiliness on my chin and nose, but it caused too much irritation on the other areas of my face.
I was having a few breakouts and decided to try a new cleanser to see if that would help. My friend recommended this scrub. While I felt that it did a nice job of controlling oiliness on my chin and nose, it was too irritating for the skin on my cheeks and forehead as well as the eye area. I cut down to using this every other day and that lessened the irritation but I like a cleanser that I can use over my entire face. If you did have issues with acne and oiliness all over your face, I think this cleanser would be effective for you.
I must say this cleanser went on extremely easy. It instantly lathered up and I could feel it going into my pores. The issue however is in the rinsing. I felt that I had to use a tremendous amount of water to wash away the cleanser. My skin felt like it still had product on it. For my sensitive skin this caused some redness and irritation.
I have always associated Neutrogena with clean and natural products. The scent of this cleanser was a bit medicinal for my liking. I would have preferred a non-scent. Again, I had a bit of irritation from this.

When this product is used daily it will definitely start to dry your skin out, so I don't recommend daily use. Maybe, about using this product every other day or two to remove dead dull skin and gives a but of a tingle so you can feel it getting deep down into pores. Pro: lathered easily and rinses off fairly quickly when gently rubbing in circular motion, when not used as often it leaves the skin smooth and hydrated with a slight glow. If you follow directions it is a good product but once it dries your skin especially around the eyes can feel uncomfortable and the eye area is sensitive so anyone needs as much hydration around that area as naturally possibly.

This works really great for removing dry, flaky skin on my face. After a bad reaction to mineral foundation, I was left with sandpaper-like skin on my cheeks. It took a few uses with this product, but it got rid of all the flakes. It's very gentle on my sensitive skin and smells great without irritating my face.

I like this product and it works fairly well. There are however a few things that I don't like about it. It can be a bit drying so it is definitely a must to use moisturizer immediately after using this product. It also is not the best at exfoliating but like I said it does a fairly good job.

I used this product for a short time in college. It was good for the price. It had enough scrub to get my dead skin off. I don’t feel like my acne improved much at the time. I think I was having hormonal acne which has now cleared up for the most part. I would definitely give this another shot though. Especially for how inexpensive it is.

I used this throughout high school as my exfoliant. I had pretty bad breakouts in high school and although this didn’t clear my skin it never made it worse. It’s a very gentle scrub so it doesn’t hurt or leave your skin feeling dry and stripped and sore. It smells clean and fresh and leaves your face feeling nice. I would recommend using it only 3-4 days a week since physical exfoliates are not as gentle as chemical ones. It’s a good option if you need an exfoliating treatment and don’t have too troubled skin. Also pretty cheap option.

I enjoyed this product for the first few weeks. I have oily/combination skin and my skin is very sensitive so I need something that isn't too harsh on my skin while also exfoliating. This product worked pretty well to make my face softer, which I appreciated.

However, I came to realize that it's just a basic exfoliator. There isn't anything special to this, which was disappointing. I never felt the exfoliating too much.

The worst part was that it started to break me out around my T-zone. I don't enjoy this product anymore and I returned it.

I have sensitive dry/normal combination skin. In your experience with this product, do you think it will work well for me? And is it really gentle enough to use as often as every day? Is it so weak to need to use it everyday?
