I intended to order Walmart's store brand, Equate, Healthy Face Lotion. It seems it has been discontinued. On my nearly empty Equate bottle it states that it is comparative to this Neutrogena product. It does have the same two active ingredients and at the same % concentration. However, it is very noticeable that this Neutrogena product has a lot of perfume, both because it is highly fragrant and stings when applied. I also ended up with a small breakout the following morning in the areas of my face where I apply lotion. I'm greatly disappointed to find that it does NOT compare to Equate and cost several dollars more. If you are looking to replace your Equate product with this, bear in mind that it is not exactly the same. (Please bring the Equate product back, Walmart.)
So far the best facewash I have ever used. I always go back to this product, and right now im using it along with Queen Helene mint julep face mask (dollar general), and at night before I go to bed I try to always wipe my face down with witch hazel (walmart). Thes 3 products have kept me pretty acne free.
I have adult acne. My skin is above average oily (all over my face...tons of oil). This product worked the first day. My breakouts have calmed down. My very oily skin is somewhat under control and even somewhat dry on my cheeks now. I have not had any new breakouts either. For the rapid results I would have to give this 2 thumbs up. Definitely looking into other Neutrogena products for acne prone and oily skin to go with this product.
i bought this thinking it would work. im pale skinned. and this says streak free. what a joke. im all blotchy and streaked out- looks horrible, and followed the directions 100%.\nI have used it THREE times (same bottle) AND IM STILL PALE expect the lovely spots.\nnow i have to find a way to get the orange\/blotchy look off.\nWASTE of money.
I am 63 years old, have used many, many cleansers in my lifetime, including facial scourers and brushes, damaging my skin. Now, washing with this cleanser, morning and night, my skin is as good as perfect. Excellent product.
I use this with other products and I like it. I wash my face with a benzoyl peroxide soap, and use Neutrogena 3-1 Hydrating Acne Treatment Oil-Free Acne Stress Control, and Neutrogena Triple-Action Toner Oil-Free Acne Stress Control all over my face, and this stuff on the trouble spots.
(Don't mix benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid treatments unless you know your skin can take it. I had to work up to it, and I give my skin a few minutes to rest in between products)
Anyway, now that I'm in my 30s I noticed my skin was taking longer to heal from blemishes. Spots would take weeks to heal. This stuff really helps to make those older spots disappear more quickly. I use it in the morning (under makeup) and before bed. When I wake up I can see the skin lightly peeling away on the spots I put it.
It does have a funny smell, but I'm used to it now, and it goes away after it dries.
I was very skeptical buying this... but boy am I glad I did!!! My fianc\u00E9 and I have been having dandruff problems for quite some time now. Most other products actually just mask your scalp in residue to \"stop the flakes\" and will actually cause an itchy scalp instead of taking care of the problem. Well I'm happy to find that this product works on fixing your scalp instead and after using this along with neutrogenas anti-residue shampoo I'm happy to say we are dandruff free and our hair and scalp are happy!!! I just wish it smelt a little better, my scalp feels clean but I feel like my hair smells a little weird...
I got this powder because every other powder and foundation I used broke me out. At first I used the applicator that it came with but it felt like it was caked on my face, so then I decided to use a brush specifically assigned for powder and it felt so much better. Now I use this powder everyday but not with the applicator it comes with but with a powder brush. I had really bad acne all over my face and in about 2-3 days I could see my skin improving, it even felt improved. I highly reccomend this product for people with acne prone skin and basically anyone even if they dont have acne.
... and this skin wash is all I use now. My skin is *very* prone to breakouts and is extremely sensitive to oils, fragrances, and various drying agents used in other facial cleansers. If my skin doesn't get clean enough, it breaks out. If it gets too dry or stripped of moisture, it breaks out. This face wash is the PERFECT balance for my skin. Also, a bottle of it lasts me a good long time, as I use one or two pumps per day ... I love it, and have been using it for going on 4 years now. It's good stuff!
