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!

I love the smell of this acne scrub & the first day was great. However, after using it for a couple days I woke up one morning with a horrible reaction. My face is dried out, red rashy & overly sensitive to anything I try to use to soothe the pain (stings!). It is almost like a bad sunburn... If you have sensitive skin I would highly recommend NOT using this, now my skin is far worse than it was before using it, let alone the embarrassment it has brought me. My skin has never had a reaction like this to any other product.

      Smells like cat urine - no lie. I much prefer the Neutrogena anti shine scrub - one of the blue ones. It is wonderful. This is goopy and smelly and not 'grainy' enough to do much for my skin. This is just nasty!

          I use this about once a week, just as a prep for a mud mask. It's smells super refreshing, and I always love using it at the end of the day before a relaxing mini-facial session. The grains are not too scratch-y, and I love the foam.

            I did buy this at [@] about 2 years ago, if I am not mistaken..this is that same product, it is oil free so you know it does not contribute further breakouts, the directions tell you to rinse thoroughly...however I'd recommend leaving some on as rinsing it completely may not be as effective.CONCLUSION: great product, great look, takes a long time to reduce pimples. (about 2 days of use)

                I had tried this product before and drugstore was providing good price for it so thought of buying 1.
                Me and my husband both use this product.His skin is oily and mine bit dry but suits both of us.
                It cleans ypur face,removes any small pimples and makes your skin feel better.Very good for blackeheads.

                    Comments about Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Foaming Scrub, Pink Grapefruit, 6.7 fl oz:

                    This product definitely controls my break outs and keeps my skin relatively clear and even. It has a lovely smell and it feels soft and clean when it is lathered and massaged onto your face.

                    But after the first use, I noticed it left some mild side effects. My skin was left blotchy and EXTREMELY dry. It felt like it had shrunk and become very tight, making it uncomfortable to smile, talk, or do anything really. It also had dry, 'ashy' patches around my nose and cheeks. However, there is a solution to dry skin that I am sure you all know of...LOTION! :D
                    Once I applied lotion to the dry areas and let it soak in, it felt fine and the redness went away by morning. (I take showers and wash my face at night) I recommend using Neutrogena Oil-Free moisture (facial lotion). It has different types for those with sensitive or combination skin. If you have normal type, they have one that has SPF 15-35. ;) I also found that after applying it overnight and sleeping with it on, in the morning it was hardly oily at all and my face was nice and soft.

                    Overall, this is a fine product. Not the best, but great for the price. It keeps acne under control and pores clean. Just remember to use lotion afterwards and try not to use it more than once or twice a day, for it may completely dry out your skin. I would recommend using it at night so that your skin can rest and the lotion will get a chance to soak in.

                    Good luck to everyone who uses this! :D
