Review: Neutrogena Grapefruit Cleanser

There was once a time in my life when I only used cream cleansers. I should probably go back to those days seeing as how my skin has never been more temperamental, but I’ll blame that on my skyrocketing stress levels and not my face wash.

I love face wash. It’s weird, but it’s my thing. I have at least 7 that I use regularly, rotating them every other day. The one I find myself gravitating back to so often is a Neutrogena favorite: The oil-free acne wash grapefruit cleanser. It smells crazy refreshing and usually helps clear my break outs. I say “usually” because my skin has been a monstrosity lately, but as mentioned earlier this is clearly because I am stressed. I can’t blame Neutrogena.

Winner of Allure’s Best of Beauty, this cleanser is definitely worthy of the title. Microclear technology, Salicylic Acid acne medicine, and the grapefruit extract work together to create an amazing face wash that prevents breakouts while not over-drying. Plus, it’s less than $8.00 so you can’t go wrong with the price tag!
