My mum and aunties have no time for luxurious skincare – they are good old Olay and Neutrogena woman and sometimes, I do have to ponder if simple is best.
They used to use a Neutrogena in a light blue opaque bottle – anyone else remember it? It smelt like fairy liquid but it was their favourite product.
Of course I buy a lot of skincare and I get sent things to try, so I am always testing new things out. Sometimes cheep and cheerful is best.
So I was actually a bit excited to get a sample of the Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Facial Wash – it takse me back to the days of stealing my mums face wash, followed by a thick, expensive coat of her Olay face cream!
To be honest I haven’t used Neutrogena skincare for a long, long time. I was very surprised by this face wash – it’s excellent. For one thing, it doesn’t feel tight or uncomfortable AT ALL, and leaves my skin soft and fresh.
I get the feeling that it helps with extra sebum (get me!) on the nose and chin – or at least it did with me.
It smells like really really zingy grapefruit – it’s a nice smell, a bit OTT but nice.
I think this comes in Original (its orange coloured and plain) and retails for about £5-6. Totally worth it, and I have been using this as a staple part of my cleansing.
I am rotating 4 cleansers of different formulas at the moment – this one, Shiseido Extra Gentle Foam, Fancl Cleansing Oil, Bliss Clog Dissolving Cream Cleanser.
Bliss Cream Cleanser every day without fail cos its a nice massaging cleanser and smells lovely followed by Shiseido Extra Gentle Foam OR the Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit.
If I have warpaint on, I use Fancl Cleansing Oil or ANY cleansing oil first because it really gets the crap off.
I have 2 new cleansers to use at some point – Biore Make Up Off & Foam (that’s the name!) and Skinfood Parsley and Mandarin! Erm…one step at a time!
