Product Review: Neutrogena Oil-Free Face Wash (pink grapefruit)

After my giant bottle of Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel ran out, I decided I wanted to try out a more ‘cheap and cheerful’ cleanser option instead of forking out the $70 for my holy grail of cleansers. (which I will be repurchasing again in the future despite the hefty price tag, don’t get me wrong – I love the stuff) As I’d had success with Neutrogena in the past, I decided to give the new Pink Grapefruit cleanser a try as I’d seen it mentioned in quite a few beauty blogger haul posts at the start of summer. At first I loved the smell, it’s punchy and fruity and is the perfect pick me up in the morning. It does get overwhelming after a while though, and after a few weeks of use it’s starting to smell more sickly-sweet than delightful. As a cleanser, it works well for my skin and the only complaint I have is that it is slightly too drying for me. It has kept breakouts at bay though, which is really all I look for in a cleanser. I won’t be repurchasing in the future, because I discovered (via a comment left on my blog, so thank you to the courteous reader who let me know) that Neutrogena’s parent company Johnson&Johnson partake in animal testing on their products. If you do still wish to purchase the product, the Oil-Free Face Wash (Pink Grapefruit) retails for $14.99 AUD and can be purchased from leading supermarkets and pharmacies throughout the country.

  1. Oh, I didn’t realise that 🙁 They just sent me some things to review! I’ll mention that in the reviews. Sadness.

    I love Neutrogena products. They’ve helped out with my acne tremendously. I am glad to hear that they themselves don’t test on animals.
