Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Cream Cleanser is the cleanser I chose to dip my toe back into other brands when my skin issues cleared up. Neutrogena has been around a long time and I’ve been in love with them since I was a teenager and my aunt who was a sales and promotional agent for the brand would bring around lots of samples to try. They are known for a number of popular skincare lines for acne-prone skin going back decades; including Clean & Clear, Rapid Clear and More Recently, Hydro Boost.
Before I tell you how the product was for me I want you to understand where I am coming from. My skin type is combination (Dry+ Normal), but mostly dry and while I suffered the occasional breakout, I didn’t have too much acne.
That changed catastrophically three years ago, and one of the results was harsh creams and ointments the dried out my skin pretty badly to control inflammation. Once I got the inflammation under control, I stuck to Ole Henriksen cleansers. This is the first one I’ve tried that’s a different brand and I’ve been using it for a month or so. So, here are my thoughts.

Scent & Texture
Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Cream Cleanser smells absolutely amazing. The citrus scent is beautifully rich. The product itself is pink and has a thick, smooth, creamy consistency. And provides a rich lather. A little goes a long way when applied to a wet face.

1. Dirt Removal
The wash works very well to remove dirt and dead cells. I like to add my favorite facial scrub a few times a week, and it only enhances the results.
It left my skin feeling clean and very well moisturized. It also help with minimizing the visibility of my pores, which became pretty large when I had my skin issues.
3. Make-Up Removal
The product also works well in the absence of make up remover and wipes when used with warm water. I accidentally found myself without wipes on a recent trip, it helped tremendously.
4. Acne Fighting
I haven’t had any breakouts in the past few weeks that I’ve used it.
When I use it with the Neutrogena Rapid Clear 2-in-1 Fight and Fade Toner, it helps my skin with oil production. Not an obsene amount. Just enough to keep my face from being too dry.
I love it. I want to try other products in the pink grapefruit line.
