This new facial cleanser is by far Neutrogena's best ever formulated facial cleanser. It is gentle, yet it removes the grime and goo of the day. It does have an unusual texture though, but overall, it is superb. No stinging, no dryness, just pure clean for my Normal to Oily skin. My husband also uses it and he has dry skin from his daily shaving routine, but after washing with this product his skin is hydrated and smooth - Not irritated. Give it a try!

I think the reason some people are leaving horrible reviews and others positive is because different skin types are going to respond WAY differently to this product. We're typically drawn to products that boast their 'natural' ingredients, but the fact that something contains 'natural' ingredients does not mean it will have miracle results.

If you have oily to normal skin you may like this product.

If you have sensitive acne-prone skin you will probably NOT like this product.

I was excited to try this because I was out of my usual cleanser and thought, "Hey! An all natural product from one of my favorite brands! Awesome!" The first couple of uses felt nice, but my skin started flaking and felt irritated. I figured I just needed to adjust, that maybe it was doing it's job by peeling off layers of skin to un-clog pores. I have finished the entire bottle (I don't like to give up on a product, lol!) and I feel justified in leaving this review. My skin is now dry, very sensitive, itchy and irritated with NO improvement in acne. In fact, it is actually red and when I step back from the mirror it's like my face is one color and my neck is another. This cleanser contains *Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate*, a detergent that incredibly irritating if you have acne-prone skin. After researching it I discovered that it's one of the worst things you can use. Someone w/o acne probably won't have a poor reaction to it (which is probably why the reviews are so polarized.)

To sum things up, if you already have acne and are looking for a cleanser to clear it, stay away from this one. The detergent will only cause more acne.

If you only have oily-to-normal skin, go ahead and give it a whirl. I would stop using it immediately if it starts to irritate your skin, as it will probably only worsen. On the other hand, if it doesn't bother you then you've just found a nice, inexpensive cleanser.

**Also, I don't know why people are complaining about the smell. I think it smells great!**

      Comments about Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser, 6 fl oz:

      I had high hopes for this, hoping that its claims of being all-natural would make it a simple and gentle cleanser. However, after one wash my face was red and irritated, and felt that way all the next day. I don't normally have sensitive skin, so I don't know why this product made me react so badly, but I returned it. The scent is also very synthetic and perfumed, something especially undesirable in an "all-natural" product. Overall, avoid this cleanser.

        Comments about Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser, 6 fl oz:

        I am 40-something, and I'm dealing with oily, acne-prone skin that is NOW showing fine lines. A harsh cleanser exacerbates the lines, but a really mild cleanser doesn't clean my pores. This cleanser walks the fine line between and does a good job for me. I have pre-rosacea skin (flush easily and painfully) and TONS of allergies, but I've had no sensitivity issues with this cleanser. Of course, I always patch test before putting something new on my whole face :) I use this cleanser with my Clarisonic, and it works every bit as well as the spendy cleansers that I've used recently. Just as a precaution: anyone with aspirin sensitivity or sensitivity to benzoates should patch test first.

              Comments about Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser, 6 fl oz:

              I gave this a try from the pore refining cleanser because it's being discontinued and this has more natural ingredients. I have dry sensitive skin and am in my 30's. I love the smell. I have to wash my bangs with my face wash or it will break out. I can use less than a dime size drop to wash my face and bangs. This works as well as Avalon Orgainics sensitive skin face wash. It's nice to see a review that said the willow bark is a natural salicylic acid but I haven't seen a difference in my wrinkles. It does not leave my skin too dry. I have the same if not more breakouts than before. I still use the pore refining cleanser for the anti-wrinkle aspect several times a week.

                I love the concept, but it was poorly executed. It does a good light cleaning, but the heavy perfume is nasty and overpowering. I usually like Neutrogena products, but I can't think most people who would like a natural product would want heavy perfume. I won't buy again unless they offer a fragrance-free version, which is what they should have started with in my opinion.

                  This is the best cleanser I've tried in years and I'm a product junkie! You don't need much, just a dab, so it's a good value. It dissolves a full face of makeup, I even massage it around my eyes and lashes, no irritation. After a rinse, my skin feels squeaky clean but NOT stripped. I usually follow with moisturizer or night serum, but I wouldn't HAVE to; because my skin feel soft and supple (instead of dry and tight like other products I've tried. I cannot express how IMPRESSED I am with this product!

                        I normally buy Origins Checks and Balances, but saw this at the end of an aisle in [...] and figured, why not. Cut to the chase: I developed an eye infection from it. I know it was this as when I went back to my Origins it cleared up, I tried the Neutrogena again (to make sure this was the cause) and developed the eye infection again, went back to my Origins and it's clearing up. Horrible itchy, red eyes that resemebles pink eye. No good.I have dry, sensitive skin, but have not used the product long enough to tell you what it does for that--in less than a week I developed an allergy, within a day and a half of using the product.Product did leave a film behind, but after severael rinses disappeared. I, personally, plan on sticking with Origins and will never test the waters again when it comes to my face wash. It is definitely better to pay more for a superb product, than try a[$] product and hope for the best, while receiving the worst.

                          This product lured me in with its supposedly natural formula, but it is not Neutrogena's best effort. The smell is WAY to perfume-y. The cleanser really clings to the skin and takes several rinses to get off completely. It is good if I have a lot of sunscreen on and am kind of dirty (e.g., after working in the yard for a few hours), but on a daily basis, it is too strong of cleanser. I found it to be a bit drying.

                          Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser

                           – Keeping your skin clean is an important part of maintaining its health, and the choice of your cleansing solution goes a long way to determining how good it looks. Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser provides a quality solution that removes impurities, leaving your skin looking and feeling fresher than ever.

                          Purifying Your Skin with Gentle Action



                          Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser offers a mild formulation that is free from phthalates, parabens, artificial dyes, petrochemicals, and chemical sulfates, creating a gentle cleansing solution that removes impurities without irritating your skin. Your skin quickly returns to its normal pH within minutes of rinsing the formula with water.

                          Penetrating Ingredients



                          Neutrogena uses ingredients that penetrate deeply into the skin in order to deliver thorough cleansing capabilities. This formula helps to purify the skin by removing makeup residue, dirt, and environmental debris using the natural salicylic acid found in Willowbark bionutrients.

                          90% Naturally Derived



                          This cleansing solution has a formula that is primarily blended with naturally derived ingredients. The remaining 10% of its ingredients are necessary to assist in blending the product as well as to help in maintaining its effectiveness over the life of the formula.

                          Non-Comedogenic Formula Is Great for Your Pores



                          This cleaning solution offers a non-comedogenic formula, which means that it doesn't clog your pores! As a result, it helps to prevent and clear up acne breakouts, minimizing the incidence of blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples. Rinsing with clear water removes all traces of this gentle cleansing solution, leaving your skin refreshed and radiant.

                          Focused on Quality



                          Neutrogena relies on quality ingredients and innovative formulas to create a line of dermatologist-recommended products. The brand dates back to the 1930s with the emergence of a specialty cosmetic company that manufactured a line of products intended for use in beauty salons.
