my forehead is stubbornly oily, and this cleanser has been a great help in minimizing that! i still recommend using some kind of moisturizer, but that's key to any good skincare routine

Most of the bad reviews seem like they didn't use it correctly... You're meant to wet your face then apply the cleanser with water so it dilutes the product. I bought this a while ago in case of a breakout and pair it with Neutrogena oil free moisturizer so my skin feels balanced and it works for me! Skin looks great compared to a week ago

I am disappointed with this product as I thought it would be better for my oily skin. I feel like it leaves a residue and I need to follow up with washing with something else. I had to discontinue using this .

Burnt my skin

I used this for the first time last night and a couple minutes after using it my face started to burn and didn’t feel right so I looked in the mirror and my face was bright bloody red. I freaked out and washed my face with something else to try to get it off my skin but it took a couple hours for the redness to go away but my eyes are still swollen and extremely irritated from using this stuff. I do not have sensitive skin and I’ve never had anything give me this type of bad reaction.

After using for the first time my face was burning like crazy! I looked in the mirror to see my face is all red inflamed! This has never happened in my life just like a few others have reviewed! I had guests coming over and it completely ruined my night and I was in so much pain I spent the night with a cold washcloth on my face

I've tried many neutrogena products. I do not have acne, but very oily skin. I'm a woman in her 60s and this cleanser is perfect. Leaves skin feeling clean but not tight. I have finally finished my skin cleanser search. Thank you.

After one wash I knew this was for me. It does not strip your face bone dry. And overnight my face still feels clean in the morning. All the other facial cleansers really don’t seem to leave the skin balanced the same way this one does.

This facial cleanser works really good for oily skin. It makes my face feel so clean and not do oily as it has been. This has truly helped my skin and has helped minimize my breakouts. I’m so glad I stumbled upon this while I was online seeking other cleansers. If you have oily skin then this is what you need, it truly works and I highly recommend it.

It looks like a horrible sun burn but it’s a chemical burn. I started to use this and my face was on fire I started screaming and crying it was painful and now I’m left with a red ring only on the parts of my face that I put the soap and looks like a mask

I LOVE this face wash! I have been using Neutrogena since I was a teenager, and fortunately my skin hasn't changed much. This is my new favorite. It doesn't dry out my skin at all, and even leaves my skin dewy after use. I definitely recommend!

Tried this hoping for the best results. It dried out my face and my face constantly burns. It burns extremely bad when I wash it and even just laying around the house with no make up or anything on. Can’t even put on my moisturizer bc it just burns. My face looks TERRIBLE especially around my chin. And after using the product my face is like LOBSTER red. This is not for me. That’s for sure. Very disappointed

I started using this about a week ago, and I couldn't be more impressed. I have wasted so much money on fancy face products trying to unclog and minimize my pores, but I was having no luck. After one week of this, I see a noticeable difference in my pores - they look cleaner, less deep, and less obvious. My skin texture is evening out, and it keeps the oiliness under control all day! I'm thrilled with the results.

Caused growths on face

1 out of 5 stars
Rae - 2 years ago
I used this cleanser for about 6 months. It seemed to be working so great. It cleaned very well and left my oily skin matte without over drying. Then came the itchiness and pimple-like growths that wouldn’t go away. I assumed it was “maskne” or fungal acne. My face became extremely itchy with a burning feeling. I stopped using this because it seemed to make my face burn worse. After 2 days of only rinsing my face with water, the itchiness was almost gone and the growths had dried up and almost disappeared. It was definitely this cleanser that caused it. I am so glad I figured out the culprit. I had not experienced anything like this or sensitive skin in the past. I wouldn’t recommend anyone to use this cleanser.
