Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Daily Scrub
Advantages: nice smell
Disadvantages: doesn't last long
Reasons for buying
I was immediately drawn to this product because of the packaging, I hadn't seen a pink facial scrub before and quite like pink grapefruit, all of those things made me want to buy this product.
£4.49 at boots prices may differ elsewhere (you may get it slightly cheaper at tesco for example).
What it's designed to do
It's a facial scrub and facial scrubs are supposed to exfoliate the skin leaving it soft and smooth. This facial scrub is supposed to help eliminate blemishes and spots: "helps eliminate spots and blemishes with a fresh clean feel.", whilst it does leave the face feeling clean & refreshed based on my experience it doesn't fully rid your skin of spots, i've had the odd one using this product.
Also it's interesting how they use the word 'helps' which implies it doesn't fully get rid of spots and blemishes.
I love the way this product smells! it's just like strong pink grapefruit. I'd buy the product again just for this, it's great to use it on the face and makes it feel clean.
Putting it on
It says on the packaging you're supposed to wet your face and then apply it however I've done it skipping this step and it's still worked fine. The next step it says to follow is wet face to remove the product. Doing this and then patting/rubbing your face with a towel really gets it off far quicker, otherwise it'd take twice as long using water to get it off. A bit of water and then removing it with a towel works efficiently.
How it looks on
It looks clear pink at first then when you rub it in it looks like a white lather. The exfoliates are small and you can barely see them. You can feel the scrub working when removing it (that's when you can feel it exfoliating, but when it's just on your face all it feels/looks like is a facial wash.
Like i mentioned before great smell
Leaves your face feeling great
This isn't harsh enough that it specifies it is advised to be used once or twice week, it can be used to a daily/regular basis
I would say it lasts a fair amount of time, mine's nearly towards the end and i've had it for a couple of months and my sister's been using it too
Doesn't dehydrate skin
Wish it was a few pounds cheaper, however it is a fairly newly released product & seems to have been available in America longer than the UK.
Doesn't really make skin completely clear therefore the name's misleading
Summary: an average scrub
