Neutrogena Oil free Acne Wash Review
Hi Everyone ,
Neutrogena is my Favourite Drugstore Brand for skincare . I have tried a lot of its products and most of them have worked well for my skin . I am sharing my thoughts on The Oil Free Acne wash today in my review . Keep Reading…

Neutrogena Oil free Acne Wash Review:
Packaging : The Neutrogena Oil free acne wash comes in a sturdy , transparent , plastic bottle and a nozzle pump dispenser on top . Since the bottle is transparent , one can easily keep a check on the quanity left inside . The packaging is definitly nice and functional (with a pump dispenser) but not travel friendly . I carried it once on a short trip and it leaked as the pump got pressed in my luggage . I think It should definitly come with a lock mechanism to prevent leakage .
The Face Wash is orange colored , clear gel formula (with no particles or beads ) . I also like the mild , pleasant fragrance it has . It lathers up lightly but does not give a lot of foam . The Star Ingredient of the face wash is Salicylic acid (2%) which is known to be effective in treating acne ( but may not be suitable for sensitive skin type )
Neutrogena Oil free Acne Wash does manage to clean my Combination skin thoroughly leaving it soft and refreshed . With Continous usage , I do see this working on my skin by drying up acne / breakouts . I can totally depend on this face wash when I need to control my acne condition . However , the only downside of this product for me is that it makes my skin extremely dry , flaky and de hydrated . It is a bit surprising since the product claims that it does not over dry skin . It takes me a full month to bring back my skin to normal by giving it extra TLC , But since it works for me , I do ignore this .
I would also like to add that I use this only when I experience a lot of breakouts . For my routine skin maintenance (when my skin is in normal condition) I use Sebamed Cleansing Foam which is another brilliant product for acne prone skin .
The Mid Priced Face Wash is Good Value for Money in my opinion , since one bottle easily lasts for 2-3 months .
Overall , I really like this face wash for its Acne fighting/Controlling ability . I will definitely repurchase and recommed this to everyone with oily and acne prone skin .

My Recommendation :
Neutrogena Acne Wash is a gel based face wash and contains 2% salicylic acid . I find it really effective in combating acne , pimples . The Only downside is that it dries up my combination skin , other then that I have no complaints about the performance of this face wash . The packaging can be amped up though to prevent leakage . One bottle easily lasts for 2-3 months , so it is good value for money too . I will definitely repurchase and recommed this to everyone with oily and acne prone skin .
