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!**

Cons

  • Strong Smell

Best Uses

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

    After reading the ingredients, this looks to be an acne medication (willow bark, the natural version of salicylic acid). Please do NOT use in the eye area! It is supposed to be a product to clear up breakouts and acne. Also, there is nothing in it that I can see that would remove makeup.

    I took off 1 star because of the strong smell. The artificial perfume smell is too strong. Otherwise, it works on my sensitive skin to prevent breakouts and pimples.

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

      For a long time I was using clean and clear morning burst, it tended to over dry my combination skin, so a few months ago I picked up a bottle of this since the other kind was out at the store and this was on sale, and I'd have to say I was pleasantly surprised. I never used to have sensitive skin but as I've gotten older, i'm in my late 20's now, I've noticed my skin has become more sensitive to products with parabens. Not only did this product balance my skin, bust since I've been using it, my skin has become so soft and always feels super clean when I'm done. Definitely worth a try :-)

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

        Not sure why so many users complain about the smell of this product. I find it to be light and fresh smelling. My skin feels clean after washing without drying it out. If left on the face for a few minutes it has a mild exfoliating effect from the natural willow bark in the product. I use it with the purifying scrub and follow up with the multi vitamin nourishing moisturizer. In all I am pleased with the product line and hope Neutrogena doesn't change a thing now that I have found facial products that don't irritate my skin.

        Really great face cleanser. I use everyday to cleanse my face. Smells good too and contains natural Eco friendly products. Only takes a little dab and gives a nice lather.

          So I got this awhile ago. I had moderate acne. I thought this would be a good gentle cleanser. I have dry skin and this just gave me little white heads everywhere. When I had this product in my routine I would get these little white heads at the end of the day. Its so weird. It cleared up quick and I thought it was my foundation. So I stopped using it and my skin cleared up so nicely. I used it again since I ran out of what I was using and... little white heads everywhere!

                      I use St. Ives facial cleanser and make-up remover which I can no longer get. So I spent more $ and decided to try this Neutrogena product since it too was listed as a cleanser and makeup remover. I applied this product the same way that I applied the St. Ives - directly on my eyes. Well this product burned my eyes immediately - I mean STINGING. My eye bothered me all day. I will continue my search for a replacement product for my St. Ives.

                        This cleanser works fine, but the heavy smell is just too much. When a product is marketed as "natural"/paraben free, etc., one would expect the smell to be fairly natural as well. This stuff smells just like hair dye. I definitely won't be buying again, I'm not sure I'll even be able to finish the bottle that I have. Yuck.

                        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.
