Neutrogena Fresh Foaming cleanser review

So, I figured since I did one Neutrogena review, I'd do another. This was the other "foaming" cleanser that I talked about in my last post.


Product description: Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser is a cleanser and makeup remover in one. Removing makeup before you go to bed has never been easier. This dermatologist-tested formula effectively removes dirt, oil and makeup. It even removes eye makeup, without soaps or oils that can sting or irritate the sensitive eye area. No more raccoon eyes! It rinses completely and wont leave any pore-clogging residue. Forget the excuses and get refreshingly clean skin and complete makeup removal in one step.

Ingredients: Purified Water, Glycerin, Lauryl Glucoside, Decyl Glucoside, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Cocamide DEA, Glycereth-7, Ammonium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Cocoyl Sarcosinate, Glycol Stearate, PEG-120 Methyl Glucose Dioleate, Tetrasodium EDTA, DMDM Hydantoin, Citric Acid, Fragrance.

Pros: Hygenic pump bottle, very light cleanser.

Cons: Did not remove my makeup very well, smell can be bothersome, did not foam, somewhat drying.

What I thought about it: So, this product is supposed to be a makeup remover. My mom says it works pretty well for her, but for me, it didn't cut it. It did not remove my eyemakeup well, rather smeared it around... and it stayed there. I had to take it off additionally. Also, the cleanser does not foam, as advertised on the bottle. It barely even creates a lather, imo. No matter how much I used (dime sized to quarter sized amount), it did not seem to lather up well, neither take off any more of my makeup. T0 me, the smell was a bit strong; so I didn't like that either. As for the results on my face after using this product, it made my skin seem a bit tight and dried out (nothing that can't be fixed with moisturizer).

I guess the real downside for this product imo is that it didn't remove my makeup as well as I'd expected it would. Atleast it didn't irritate my skin or cause any breakouts. Overall, I'd have to say that I would only reccomend this product if you want a quick face wash, like in the morning. It's not something I would use daily or purchase again.
