BV Product Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice product for every other day! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received this serum with the face wash and use it every other day as i found that too much use was a little drying - i think this is because i have a combination skin type with the odd spot especially around my hairline. I think for someone who was prone to acne this could be used everyday with great effects. The serum was really easy to apply and you only needed a small amount so the tube will last for ages. Due to the combination of ingredients you do have to be careful in the sun but you can use this product when you need to and will help improve the look and feel of your skin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well I really liked this serum and how lightweight and none greasy it is. It quickly absorbs into the skin so your ready to go with your next step of your routine. I have been using this once a day at night and I have to say I have had fewer breakouts and any breakouts I did get vanished very quickly. The only reason I'm docking a star is for the design of the tube. Because the serum is a very runny liquid I found it came out of the tube too fast and I was using too much, especially at the start when the tube was full. You can barely hold the tube upright without the product spewing out. I personally would have preferred a pump or something more controlled.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Neutrogena Daily Serum [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am a frequent user of Neutrogena products and constantly repurchase and I am also a fan of face serums, so I couldn’t wait to try this. I found the serum to be non sticky and absorbed easily. It is fragrance free and worked well for me on my sensitive skin which is prone to the odd breakout. I have been using this serum daily and have seen an improvement in the texture and appearance of my face. I would, however, have liked the serum to have been packaged in a bottle with a pipette rather than a tube. All in all, the results are good so far and I will continue to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to my skincare I really enjoyed this product; I saw improvement in my skin and will keep it in my routine. I used the product on my problem area, specifically my chin, and any other areas that popped up. I noticed a visible change in the texture of my skin and the blemishes I had quickly reduced in redness and size. I also received positive comments from others who noticed a difference in my skin. The product is branded as having no fragrance, when applied I could smell a ‘medicinal’ smell, however this dissipates quickly. The serum itself is not sticky and soaks into the skin well, without leaving any tacky residue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend for hormonal acne I bought this randomly because I’m having terrible breakouts from my hormonal birth control, nothing has helped thus far. I literally noticed an improvement overnight after using a thin coat before bed. My skin is more even toned, and dark spots where pimples were healing are disappearing after only about 2-3 weeks. I might start stock piling it incase they discontinue 😂

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Faded acne scars, helping breakouts, kind on skin I bought this product a couple months ago after using some of the other neotrogena range and facing a considerable acne break out, my worst in a number of years after trying many different spot care products with no success. I was noticing that spot scars were all over my face looking like I had more spots than I actually did and permanently needing makeup to cover up the scarring. Well… let me tell you that I used this product sceptical of the results but it did not disappoint. I’ve been using it gradually and as and when for the last few weeks and I really am noticing a difference. My spot scarring is fading and my spot breakouts are also calming right down. I’m amazed. It feels light on your skin, breathable and I have sensitive skin and for me it didn’t sting or irritate me at all which I was worried it might. A tube goes a long way as only the tiniest amount goes a long way with this product so is amazing value. Starting to feel more confident and I have to acknowledge this product for helping me get there. Well worth it, so glad I tried it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where has this been all my life? I bought this to use 'on the spot' on old acne marks on my jawline and between my eyes that literally NOTHING has ever shifted and I thought would be with me forever. There we a noticeable difference within a week and now maybe a month in of intermittent use (when I remember, under sunblock and make up by day), the key mark has gone completely. I'm super happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Defence Against Acne I recently had the opportunity to try out Neutrogena's Clear & Defend+ Daily Serum, and I must say, I am thoroughly impressed. As someone with sensitive skin prone to occasional breakouts, finding a product that effectively targets acne without causing irritation is always a challenge. This serum exceeded my expectations, I noticed a significant reduction in the size and redness of my existing pimples within just a few days of use.hygienic pump bottle, ensuring the product remains fresh and easy to dispense. The packaging is sleek and travel-friendly, making it a great companion for air travel.
