Product Review: Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Scrub

With a combination skin, I need to exfoliate my skin a few times a week to avoid breakouts, and not to mention keep shine at bay, and help my makeup stay put for longer. Often face scrubs are very harsh on the skin, so I am always on the search for the perfect one. Here are my thoughts on the *Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Scrub;


What They Say:
"Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Scrub cleanses and gently exfoliates skin in one easy step for refreshingly clean skin".

RRP: $11.99 (125ml) – Available from Priceline and select pharmacies and supermarkets

What I Say:
The Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Scrub claims to easily remove all traces of dirt, oil and make-up from deep within pores, while gentle microbeads help wash away dead skin cells, leaving skin soft and smooth.

The scrub also promises to rinse completely clean, with no pore-clogging residue for refreshingly clean skin. The scrub is both soap and oil-free, alcohol-free, non-comedogenic as well as it has been dermatologist tested.

And this scrub really is gentle. The exfoliating beads are very small, and it doesn't seem like there are a lot of them in the cream, so when you are using it, you can barely feel that the skin is being exfoliated. But in saying that, after use, any makeup, oil, dirt and grime and not least, dead skin cells have clearly been removed from the skin, as my skin is left feeling clean, soft, smooth and glowing. And without any redness or irritations in sight.

In spite of being soap-free, it still foams up into a nice and soft lather when I massage it into my wet face with my fingers. And because it is so gentle, it also means that it is perfect for everyday use, and also very suitable for those with very sensitive skin.

Fresh Foaming Scrub has a lovely and gentle scent, which is still very faint, and far from overwhelming. As soon as the scrub has been washed off the face again, this scent completely disappears. Yet, while I really like the scent, I am sure that those with a very sensitive skin would prefer if it had also been perfume free.

All in all, I think this is a great scrub, and I love using it in the morning in the shower for an effective yet gentle clean, and I love the fact that it is so gentle that I can use it every day. At just $11.99 for a large 125ml tube, it is a great price too.
