I just bought this yesterday at [@] and used it for the first time last night and I enjoyed using it, and really love the fragrance-free type scent...it still smells good! I promise you that I woke up today and my face still felt clean! That means there is something different and wonderful about this product! It cleanses without being too harsh(if you use really harsh products that can make your skin overproduce oil). The only oil this product has in it is a GOOD kind of oil(Castor Oil). Here, this is for you to read, from a trusted website: Castor oil is a non-comedogenic oil that can be applied to the skin to flush out the pores, and soften scarred skin cells so that they can be removed more easily. Since castor oil is especially purgative, it is helpful in flushing out impurities and bacteria from the pores to eliminate blackheads and drain out pus. To apply castor oil to flush out the skin and soften scarred tissues, massage 1 tsp. of castor oil into your skin using small, circular motions, then place a steaming washcloth onto your skin to open the pores. After the cloth cools, use it to wipe away the oil. Castor oil can be used on the skin up to two times per day to empty your pores and loosen acne scar tissue.Read more: http://www.livestrong.com/article/88805-home-remedies-acne-scarring/#ixzz2248KQG1N

I think this has the potential to be a good product, but not for all skin types. I used this cleanser because although my skin is very oily, it is also very sensitive, and dry around the eyes and cheek bones. The cleanser did a good job at moisturizing my dry areas and keeping the oily areas in check by not putting them into overdrive by stripping them of moisture. It made my skin feel very soft, and although you don't get the squeaky clean feeling that other cleansers provide, but unlike other cleansers, it doesn't over clean your skin, which people don't realize often worsens problematic skin conditions. The major downside of this product is that the formula contains oil. The oil caused my skin to become congested, giving me whiteouts the day after I used it. If I had realized it had oil in it, I probably would have never purchased it. I simply feel that oil is not a good ingredient for skincare products, although I could see how it could be useful for someone with very dry skin. However, if you are like me, and have sensitive but easily congested skin, you should pass on this product.

    Comments about Neutrogena Extra Gentle Cleanser, 6.7 fl oz:

    I read that this cleans better than Cetaphil, which I have used forever, but does not fully take off foundation makeup (which I only occasionally use). I tried this product because the ads said it did a better job. Well, it doesn't. But I do like it, and am going to use it as an alternative to the Cetaphil.

      Comments about Neutrogena Extra Gentle Cleanser, 6.7 fl oz:

      I use this product for morning and bedtime cleansing because it leaves my skin clean but not dry, and does not disturb the pH balance so it never leaves my skin feeling stripped. It's perfect for washing off the day's make-up and sweat, and afterwards my skin is ready for serums and creams that restore it's healthy glow.

            Applying Alpha Hydroxy cream right after cleansing makeup with Neutrogena Gentle Cleanser from face at bedtime, then applying the Physicians Formula Deep Moisture Cream, has for many years kept me looking many years younger than my age. None of the products I use are scented.

              Comments about Neutrogena Extra Gentle Cleanser, 6.7 fl oz:

              I have been reading a ton of reviews dissing this product because it doesn't lather and doesn't clean effectively. THIS PRODUCT IS NOT MEANT TO LATHER. It is a LOTION cleanser and it DOES clean effectively. A lot of people assume that if it doesn't lather it's not cleaning. This is NOT true.

              I absolutely love this cleanser! I use it day and night to clean my face and neck. It is very gentle and cleans thoroughly. I typically use between 1.5-2 pumps when I cleanse. I will say though that this is not the cleanser to use if you want to remove makeup. I found that out the hard way by having to cleanse twice and use my Dickinson's Pore Perfecting Toner to successfully remove my makeup. Instead, I use Dickinson's towelettes to remove my makeup (close to all natural aside from one ingredient).

              This product is soap-free but it does have a light soap scent to it. This doesn't bother me but might others. There is no added parfume or fragrance in this product.

                I use Neutrogena Extra Gentle Cleanser every morning and evening to wash my face and get it ready for creams and lotions I apply at bedtime or to start my day. I used to use a 2x more expensive retinol cleansing milk, but I get the same beneficial results from the Neutrogena product at a more reasonable price. I would not switch from this because I love how my skin looks and feels after using it.

                  I get very dry, rough skin in the Winter. This is the only cleanser I have found that keeps my skin from drying in the cold air. The other reviewers are right, it's like washing your face with lotion, it doesn't lather at all. But, it rinses off clean, it doesn't leave your skin oily. This is the best cleanser I have found for dry skin.
