I decided to get this for use in the summer because of the grapefruit in it, it smells so good! I have adult acne due to stress . my skin is combination oily to dry.. (oily in summer and dry in winter)
This cleanser looks more like a Gel than a cream but it is thick and foams up very well. it's unlike any cream cleanser i have tried before and surprisingly it is very moisturizing which you dont normally see, most cream cleansers strip too much oil from the face causing dryness but this does Not do that at all.
It does contain AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) which can cause irritation to very sensitive skin, however i did not experiance any irritation with this so i am very happy with the results so far.

The "Oil-Free" label is misleading. It may not contain oil, but this is a genuine "cream" cleanser. I originally thought it was just a standard lathering cleanser with a creamy texture (much like Clearasil's Daily Cleanser) but this is a cream-textured cleanser that definitely leaves a lotion-like residue on skin. I could not get it to lather at all, either on my face or in my hands. I had to re-wash my face with a standard cleanser to remove the residue. As a result, I don't know how well it works as an acne treatment. I assume it would be fine for normal-to-dry skin, but I cannot give it an accurate or reliable rating based upon how it's supposed to work. I plan to use the rest of my tube as a moisturizing body cleanser.

    Comments about Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Cream Cleanser, Pink Grapefruit, 6 fl oz:

    I have PCOS and around 21 began suffering from acne for the first time in my life. I'm 29 now and still searching for that miracle product to give me MY skin back. Until I was about 27 I had severe acne with everything from little tiny blackheads to deep painful cystic bumps. I have blemishes on my cheeks now from the years of failed treatments. I've always been a fan of Neutrogena and I bought this product in the facial and the body wash just because it was a new one. Ironically before it arrived my friend told me about how wonderful Pink Grapefruit Neutrogena is for the skin.

    My initial thoughts about this product were "wow really smells like grapefruit!" and "this stuff sure doesn't foam much." I used it a few times and it seemed ok. Not much better than other products, still not worse. For a month I didn't use either every day. The face wash I mainly use 2-4 times per week with my other regimen. I use the body wash maybe 4 times per week and half the time I follow with the Dove Cream Oil Body Wash just in case the Neutrogena is drying. (haven't noticed any out of ordinary dryness)

    I hadn't paid much attention to any changes until my hubby (who is a compulsive pimple popper YUCK) performed his routine back/body search looking for pimples on me he could pop before I could stop him. He was disappointed when he found NOTHING. I thought "hmm maybe the stuff really does work." Then i thought further. I ALWAYS get a couple of VERY painful DEEP cystic nodules before my time of the month. They last for about 10 days no matter how much I put on them. This month there were NONE! That time completely caught me off guard this month because I didn't have that telltale problem!

    It's only been one month, and I'm not saying this is a miracle treatment, but I am definitely pleased to give this product the respect it deserves. I will monitor through the second and third months to see if I'm even still getting pimples or not because I honestly have no clue. Also, it's only been one month.

    In addition to this product, I cleanse my face and neck almost daily with green alcohol (any kind but review posted on this site under rite aide green rubbing alcohol). I follow with Thayer's Rose Petal Alcohol Free Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera (review also posted there) also use the Neutrogena facial moisturizer with SPF 15 and Vitamins...I think A, K, B, and E. It's GREAT!!! I don't think they sell it on this site but I noticed more youthful, refreshed looking and feeling skin immediately. Sometimes I use the face wash, then follow by the alcohol and Thayer's then moisturize. Others i use just face wash and moisturizer or just alcohol and Thayer's and moisturizer. My skin is now SO soft and smooth. Those old blemishes have not completely faded away, but they have largely decreased and there are only a few remaining stubborn blemishes that I don't even notice anymore. In addition I'm running my hands over my face now and all I feel is SMOOTH, soft, BUMPLESS skin!

      Comments about Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Cream Cleanser, Pink Grapefruit, 6 fl oz:

      I have been using this Neutrogena cleanser for over a year and have been mostly breakout free. Many acne products irritate and/or over-dry my skin thus causing more breakouts. This creamy cleanser is gentle on your skin but removes exfoliates dead cells with glycolic acid and salicylic acid. It's perfect for my combination skin.
