This cleanser smells absolutely amazing and does a good job making my skin feel clean and refreshed without over-drying it. I use it when I am suffering from occasional breakouts and don't want to irritate my skin with other cleansers. Unlike some acne products, I didn't experience any stinging and really it felt like most other cleansers.  If I'm having a particularly troubling bout of acne I will follow up with a spot treatment cream for fast results.

This stuff is amazing I don't have acne but I like to use it because sometimes my face just feels dull and dry this does the trick it revitalizes it. I know it says for acne but you don't have to have acne to use this.

Review for: Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser more...
I struggled with breakouts during high school and especially once I started college. I tried everything, including pricey acne systems but nothing seemed to work. Until I tried this product. I actually started using the original version as this was before the pink grapefruit and it cleared my skin up within a week. I was so pleasantly surprised that I continued to use it exclusively for the next eight years until my skin started to change. I use a variety of different cleansers during the week depending on my issues, but the Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser has a place in the rotation for those days when I'm struggling with breakouts. I highly recommend!

Review for: Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser more...
Before the pink grapefruit cleanser came around, I just used the standard version. I discovered this product in middle school, when acne was starting to become a problem. I've been in the beauty industry forever and have used HUNDREDS of cleansers - this has always been my go-to.

As soon as the pink grapefruit version existed....I knew it was meant for me.

It removes all of my makeup every time without being overly drying or oily, and doesn't leave any residue like soaps can.

I am now nowhere near middle school age, but occasionally get breakouts around that-time-of-the-month....this helps clear them up quickly.

I have been using this for about 2.5 months and I really like it so far. I usually wet my face with warm water and take my facial brush that I wet before as well and pump some of the cleanser on top of the brush and start rubbing it all over my face starting off at my cheeks.It did help my blackheads a little bit, but overall, I don’t feel like I noticed a difference. Maybe I need to use it for a longer period of time to see results. My skin feels fresh and clean and for some reason, I love the color of the cleanser. You don’t see a pinkish cleanser everywhere!

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

This helps control my oily skin especially underneath my makeup. It keeps my face from looking oily also when I'm not wearing makeup.
