This face wash made my skin super sensitive. It also gave me puffy eyes. The new formula makes my skin super sensitive. I would definitely buy this again as its filled with harsh chemicals that really harm my face. I would not recommend this to anyone, as it did not work out for my face.

Review for: Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Facial Cleanser, Pink Grapefruit, 6 Ounce more...
I bought this because I have oily skin, and Im usually fine using just micellar water but around my period it´s a freaking oil fest so I thought, maybe I can use this in the week before my period and it´ll do me a favor.
And it did, after using it 1-2 nights (only once a day) my skin was significantly less oily, but one more time and it overdried like it was getting paid for. It overdried my skin so bad it hurts and Im all red and bumpy around my mouth. This has happened to me twice so for me, I know it was this product that caused it.
I´ll never buy this again, I actually just threw away an almost full bottle of it, it was that bad for me.

I thought this product was supposed to help my acne problem. But once I gave it the first try, it made my face very dry and left redness. It made my skin Delicate.

I was excited to try out this product because it claims to help with acne and I tried it out and it did not work for me whatsoever. I have sensitive skin and it felt like my face was burning and after rinsing it off my skin felt so tight and so dried out I did not like it one bit. I decided to give it another shot and keep trying it to see if it would change but sadly it didn’t, it always kept giving me the same result of tight and dry skin I was very disappointed with this product .

I bought this in hopes that it would help the pimples I’ve began to get since I had my last baby. It’s literally done nothing. I’m really annoyed because I wasted money on it.

This was one of the very first face scrubs I started using, and I had to stop using it after a month because it was drying out my skin, like really dry. The dryness would make my skin itch.

I used this stuff as a teenager, or I should say tried it once. I remember it left a stingy/burning feeling on my face & it broke me out. I gave it a few tries but the irritation didn't stop

Bought this to help with my acne but it made my skin so dry. I used it with the Neutrogena oil-free acne moisturizer and my skin began to peel. I don't recommend this for dry skin.

This is one my least favorite products from neutrogena. It doesn’t remove makeup well, which yes I under stand it’s an acne cleanser not make up remover but I like to be able to use a two in one. I do not like that it has such a strong perfume scent to it.
