Review for: Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Facial Cleanser, Pink Grapefruit, 6 Ounce more...
So I am currently using this product as we speak. I am a huge fan of all of this brands products and have used them for years for different reasons. This particular product I use when I have harsh breakouts. And I mainly use it once a month for about a week during my time of the month. It is great during that time because it does a great job at clearing up breakouts fast!

However it is a semi strong product because it is for acne prone skin. So after usage it does leave your face a bit dry and burn a bit in the process of using it. That however can be easily taken care of by just applying a moisturizer right after. I recommend this product to anyone with bad acne or bad breakouts due to sensitive skin

I wanna start off by saying that this cleanser STRIPPED so much oil from my skin that my face literally felt tight and dry to the point where I would start bleeding. The smell is so pungent and so strong that I had to try to avoid not breathing when I would wash my face. There are soooooo many better cleansers out there that Neutrogena have that this cleanser is just 🚫not worth the money at ALL.🚫 The reason why I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 is because since it did strip literally every ounce of oil off my face, my pimples would get smaller drastically and disappear within a few days. But other than that, there are cleansers out there that could do the same WITHOUT stripping your skin so heavily.

Review for: Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Facial Cleanser, Pink Grapefruit, 6 Ounce more...
I was very excited to try this product out when I saw that it claims to clear out breakouts. I wasn’t dealing with major breakouts, only 1-2 and I ran out of my face wash.

I tried it for a few days and IT DID NOT WORK AT ALL! The grapefruit scent s very strong, strongly fragrant which is not suitable for you if you have SENSITIVE SKIN like me! My skin started breaking out the next day itself and I have dry patches on my nose & skin which I never had before using this face wash.

IF YOU HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN, DO NOT TRY THIS!

Review for: Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Facial Cleanser, Pink Grapefruit, 6 Ounce more...
I used to own this,and I really liked it for occasional use. It did help me with my acne and it absolutely smelled amazing,but I noticed that if I used it more than once every week or two that it would dry my face. Now,that could be because my skin was changing at the time,so I guess I'll have to try it again soon and see. But as for performance,it cleaned my skin well,helped with acne,and smelled amazing. So,for occasional use,I'd give it a solid 8/10.

Review for: Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Facial Cleanser, Pink Grapefruit, 6 Ounce (Pack of 3) more...
I was looking for a new face wash, but beware of this one! I have combination skin, and after my first face wash I thought it went great. The second day I noticed that my skin felt really tight, so I thought it was just cleansing well. On the third day I had dry patches on my cheeks and the rest of my face was super dry! I couldn’t get enough lotion on my face and noticed after washing the third day my skin was really red and irritated. I would not purchase again!

Review for: Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Facial Cleanser, Pink Grapefruit, 6 Ounce more...
I do love the scent and packaging of this. The grapefruit smells nice but isn't overbearing, and I love that this face wash comes with a pump! This cleanses my skin very well and does a pretty decent job at maintaining any blemishes that I may have. My only downside is that this makes my skin very dry afterwards. I have pretty oily skin but I still dislike how much this strips your skin. I am not sure if I will repurchase this.

I love the Pink Grapefruit line that Neutrogena came out with. And I personally prefer to use this cleanser as opposed to the exfoliating one because you can use this daily, morning and night without worrying about over exfoliating your skin. I have combo skin and this plus a face brush works for me. The smell is divine and I’m a big fan of fruity smelling products. This is a fave to use during the summertime.

On average I have normal skin type but do have concerns for acne from excess oil around my nose area. I thought that this product has a nice clean scent and foams up really good for easy cleansing. It rinses easily and clean. I did notice some dryness with skin flakes after a day or two on each side of my nose and am not sure if this is too strong or maybe I should only use this ever other day maybe. The price was in the medium range for acne products so worth it to me.  Neutrogena® Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser

Review for: Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Facial Cleanser, Pink Grapefruit, 6 Ounce more...
Love this product!!! I love that it’s pink and it’s great to have a pump. It smells super fresh and yummy like grapefruit! I use it twice a day in the morning and night. It cleanses my skin really well and helps get off any left over makeup too. I leaves my skin feeling fresh and kinda tight but I just moisturize when I’m done. I like that it’s oil free and i would definitely recommend it!

Review for: Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Facial Cleanser, Pink Grapefruit, 6 Ounce more...
I tried this product and got the craziest reaction ever. I think I’m sensitive to grapefruit. My skin burned when I used it and I actually got little scrunched up burned patches of skin all over my face from it. The most horrible experience I’ve ever had with skin care. I would use this product very cautiously just in case you have a reaction too!
