This product has been going for years and is still as good now as it was back then.
If you suffer from oily skin, blemished or acne prone skin this is one of the best brands to use.
This has that ingredients we need SALICYLIC ACID which is ideal to tackle those issues.
The brand has created a formula that targets the problem area, but gives you that deep down cleanse and a soft feel to your skin.
Its one of the few that actually DOES NOT cause problem.
My skin is quite sensitive and it takes a long time to find something that works or doesn't aggravate the skin.
This feels like a prescription treatment due to the scent and feeling it leaves, it's as though you have given your skin a medicated formula but at the same time a refreshing treatment.
I would say over a period of time my skin felt lighter and produced less oil and it definitely over a time of 2-3 weeks reduce the appearance of blackheads and that meant I didn't have to use the nose strips as much which obviously kinder to the skin.
I wish I had known about this at the start of my 'troubled' skin years as I think this is good as a preventative step for teenagers and for those with minor issues, as for those who have had acne skin for a while this is one I personally don't think you should start using as the bigger problems it does not help as much.
But now my skin is almost clear using this has help prevent any major problems.
Hopefully, I am writing about the right product here but as far as the name goes, I only know of one Neutrogena Deep Clean Cream Wash! I received a big tube of this as a gift from a friend who obviously thought my oily/acne prone/spotty/blackhead infested mature skin (I am going on 40!) needed some serious help! I have been through more face washes than I care to remember, so what harm is there to add another to my list ... I've since purchased another tube of this cleanser but after many many months because it lasts and lasts! It has a lovely thick creamy non-oily texture and "cools" the skin on application. It does not foam, rinses off well and it does not leave skin tight but rather soft and refreshed. Following the ritual with a splash of cold water intensifies the experience! The smell is nice, a bit minty. I have not used it to remove make-up since I prefer this product in the morning (wakes me up!) but for obvious reasons, would not use it anywhere near the eyes. I still get spots and blackheads but will continue to use this for my morning cleansing ritual. I do not believe any single product on the market today can banish problem skin but this product is pleasant to use and good value for money.
I understand if a few of you are a bit confused right now ? and yes, I am writing in the right section. I?m not going to start telling you about some obscure Norwegian film in the skincare section, but about a facial wash! Yep a facial wash? don?t worry though, its not original source or lush though? I hold teagirl personally responsible, quite some time ago she challenged me to write this review? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Neutrogena are one of the skin-care brands that I really trust. Having a parent with severe eczema and having inherited that sensitive skin, I?m a little nervous of trying some of the cheaper brands on the market. Neutrogena Concentrated Hand Cream has been helping my Mother?s cracked and chapped hands for as long as I can remember, and comes with that lovely tag of ?Dermatologist Recommended? along with all of their products. So, when it came to trying to find a facial wash that wouldn?t dry out my skin, but still get rid of London?s dirt and grime, I thought I?d put them to the test. Neutrogena started life in 1930 as a small Los Angeles cosmetics company called Natone. (And there was me thinking that it was a Norwegian company that started out making hand cream from a traditional recipe that fishermen had been using for years ? its that ?Norwegian Formula? hand cream giving me ideas?) Originally the company dealt with the film and glamour industry based in California, but over the years Natone began manufacturing and distributing more widely. In 1954, the founder, Emanuel Stolaroff travelled to Belgium where Dr Edmond Fromont had produced a mild, transparent soap that did not leave any residue on the skin ? allowing it to return to its normal pH very quickly. This soap was marketed as ?Neutrogena? and over the years became so synonymous with the company that Natone changed its name to the ?Neutrogena Corporation? in 1962. Acquired by Johnson & Johnson in 1994, Neutrogena appears to be creating more and m
ore products in the beauty market that do not leave residue in same way as the original Neutrogena soap did not. The Neutrogena Deep Clean Cream Wash is one of those products, and is actually the second of their face washes that I have used ? the first being their ?Deep Pore Cream Wash? which no longer seems to be on the market. The product comes in a large plastic 200ml tube. In my experience this size of tube should last approximately a year if used once daily, making the cost of £5.35 from Boots, very good value. Before using this product splash your face with water, then squeeze a small amount ? just under a centimetre ? and rub this between your wet hands. Rub the wash over your face and wash off. The facial wash really does feel very refreshing; with the menthol contained in the product cooling your face and making it tingle slightly. Once you have dried your face you will find that your skin feels soft to the touch ? although it is not a replacement for a moisturiser, it does mean that if you forget to take a moisturiser with you when swimming for example (I?m a bit forgetful), your skin won?t feel overly dry and taught. This feeling seems to be common with other Neutrogena facial washes. When holidaying abroad I used a large amount of suntan lotion, instead of using a moisturiser at night ? which would have left me feeling like my face was the victim of an oil tanker disaster ? I simply washed off the suntan lotion with the ?Clear Pore? wash. This cut down on the number of spots I suffered as the result of the suntan lotion and, from what I can tell, would also work with the ?Deep Clean? wash. Neutogena Deep Clean Wash certainly does the trick for me, but does it do what it says on the tin (or tube)? ?This clean-rinsing, daily cream wash cleanses thoroughly and smoothes skin's surface so skin is left refreshingly clean with no pore-clogging residue. Neutrogena Deep Clean Cream Wash works i
n two ways: 1st: it cleanses the pores to loosen impurities such as dirt, oil and make-up. 2nd: the salicylic acid further removes dead skin cells, which can roughen and dull your complexion. Your complexion looks fresh and healthy; feels smooth and soft from a deeper more thorough cleansing. Non-comedogenic, oil-free, alcohol free, tested by dermatologists? As far as I can see it does. Before using a Neutrogena face wash I was getting more spots, and although I do still get the occasional one this seems more likely to be due to hormones than a dirty or pore clogged face. My skin does feel and look fresh and healthy, and the facial wash does seem to remove the majority of my make up - although not all, but I haven?t found a facial wash yet that will remove all of my eye make up in one foul swoop. (If anyone can, I?ll deduct a star from the rating!) But most importantly for me, it doesn?t irritate my face, and makes Neutogena?s pride in being dermatologically tested seem merited. It may not be some obscure Norwegian film, but it sure as hell does clean your face and leave it soft enough that I can heartily recommend it! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Unfortunately I couldn?t find any details on whether this item has been tested on animals ? at present I?m assuming not, please tell me if you know differently. Oh, and if anyone wants to know the ingredients ? go read the back of the container? Information on Neutrogena history from http://www.neutrogena.com/Content.asp?ID=18 You can often find this product cheaper on offer ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Now strictly speaking there should be a film review coming sometime from that teagirl? I?m back off to do some arty-farty type reviews?
After noticing a significant hole in my pocket (the result of misguidedly using a certain v expensive skincare brand religiously for quite some time) I decided to venture into the world of Neutrogena. I had done quite a bit of research into what would be a good cleansing product for my skin type - which is combination and quite prone to spots. I discovered that non-comodegenic products were the way forward and this Neutrogena Deep Clean Cream Wash was what I came up with. It is cheap (approximately £4.95) and widely available. Usage couldn't be simpler either - you just massage it into your skin and rinse off. I wear make up every day and it takes off every trace and afterwards your skin is literally glowing! It gives a light 'tingle' and you can practically feel it cleaning deep down well below the skin's surface. One of this product's claims is that it evens skin tone and after using this product daily for just over 2 months now I can verify this claim. My skin feels much more smooth and although still subject to the odd break out, the spots seem to respond to this product and calm down after a relatively short period of time. I would thoroughly recommend this product to those of you with combination skin and to stick with it to see the results. I haven't tried any other products in this range yet, but am very keen to.
Neutrogena Deep Clean Cream Wash is a daily face wash, which aims to prevent spots, and cleans deep into the pores. When i first bought this product, i bought the one specifically for sensitive skin. However, within a week, i had a slight rash on my jawline, and my skin had started to peel. I did however find, that it did the job. Within the week, any blemishes had vanished, and no new spots appeared. Having said this, i have never been that bothered with spots, and i don't know whether or not the result would be amazing on problem skin. It does leave you feeling that you've scrubbed well at your face! it leaves you without any greasiness, and you look so clean that you shine!! I would say that those best off using this are those with non-sensitive skin, so you won't have the only downside that is leaving you with dry skin. I have never before bought a product for sensitive skin because i dont tend to be bothered with dryness or any other after effect, but this was a little harsh for me!
