BV Product Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Neutrogena Facial Wash [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a good go-to everyday facial wash. Application is quick and easy to use and leaves the skin feeling clean and looking healthier. The formula is unscented and doesn’t strip the skin of its natural oils or clog up pores. I have sensitive skin and have a few blemishes at the moment due to a combination of frequent mask wearing and warmer weather. The wash is non sticky and doesn’t leave any unwanted residue on the skin once rinsed away. I really like this facial wash and I found the results to be good. My face feels smoother and my complexion is clearer after daily use. Well worth a try.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My skin was awful after using this As the rest of the reviews state, this product made my skin all dry, tight and rough in texture. I bought this product as my usual neutrogena face wash was out of stock, but it had made my face all itchy and unable to wear makeup. Thankfully after not using it over the weekend, my skin has cleared up. I don’t consider myself to have sensitive skin, nor did I use a lot of this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great daily AHA/BHA cleanser for oily skin Great daily AHA/BHA cleanser for acne-prone oily skin. I have gone through a few bottles now, so I can definitely say I enjoy the cleanser and find it useful for keeping acne at bay. I apply one pump of the cleanser to my face and one pump to my back every morning. The cleanser does not cause any irritation or stinging and I notice a significant difference in the amount of acne I have when I use the cleanser versus when I do not use the cleanser. The price is great value per ounce compared to other cleansers and the quality is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skin staple It is great to see Neutrogena launch more products in the UK as they have a huge range in the US. This is a really good face wash, it is not drying or irritating and helps with my acne prone skin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would work great on acne prone skin [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] A couple of individuals in my household have used this - i get the odd spot every now and again and have combination skin and for me i would say it does make your skin feel very clean but it can be irritating to use daily so every other day is manageable where you get the positive effects and not the redness and dryness. I am still using my moisturiser though and would definitely recommend the use of one with this product. I think this would be perfect for those that had problem skin, especially in the teenage years as the mix of ingredients definitely get to work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No good for my skin [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] It's not often I come across a product that I would actively avoid in the future but unfortunately this is one. I've tried to like this product as I love Neutrogena skincare but this does not agree with my skin at all. Within 24 hours of using it once I start to get dry sore itchy patches of skin around my eyes and at the sides of my nostrils. I've tried to just use it when I have a breakout but even using it once my skin reacts badly every time. I thought my skin was combination but I think it's actually just normal. This would probably be suited to oily acne prone skin as it seems to strip all the oil and moisture out of mine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Far too harsh This product is far too harsh. Used twice per day, on the second day of use my eyes and cheeks were extremely inflamed. I immediately stopped using and started taking anti histamine for the swelling. The following days my skin was so dry it started to flake off.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleasant To Use This facial wash is really easy and pleasant to use. It doesn't "froth up" when you apply it, like I expected it to do when I first went to use it, but you soon get used to that. It doesn't give you that "tingly" feeling on your skin that I like and have experienced with other facial washes, but my skin felt soft after using and did seem to be clearer from the regular use (I didn't get the amount of breakout that I sometimes get on my face during certain times of the month, which was good!). There's no fragrance to the wash, but it seems to do the job that it says it's going to do so no complaints here.
