Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-wrinkle Anti-blemish scrub review

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-wrinkle Anti-blemish scrub

Product Description: Neutrogena® Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Anti-Blemish™ is the first foaming scrub to fight pimples and the signs of aging for clearer, younger-looking skin. Treats and helps prevent blemishes. Salicylic Acid, a proven blemish fighting ingredient penetrates deep down into pores to remove dirt and oil.
Reduces appearance of fine lines. Gentle microbeads sweep away dead skin cells and help hydrate skin. Alpha Hydroxy works deep in the skin's surface to smooth fine lines.

WARNING! Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.

Pros: smooths and softens skin, exfoliates, leaves skin feeling clean, clean, and with a healthy glow, has acne medication & AHA

Cons: a little harsher & doesn't smell as good as Neutrogena's Gentle Scrub, a little pricey, can cause sunburn (although I have NOT had any adverse effects)

What I thought about it: I bought this to go with my Healthy Skin Anti-wrinkle cream, and I'd have to say that this is a good pairing. I use this scrub off and on throughout the week, and I haven't had any adverse reactions to it; no breakouts, no irritation, no dryness, and no redness. It works great at smoothing and softening my skin (I LOVE exfoliant scrubs... maybe a little too much lol) and leaving it glowing and healthy looking. It is not as gentle as the Deep Clean gentle scrub, but it isn't TOO harsh. I just don't scrub my face with too much pressure and it does the job without irritating my skin. It also doesn't smell as good as the Gentle Scrub, but that's not a big deal. This was $9... which is kind of pricy but not too bad. You pay for what you get and this is a great exfoliating scrub to use a couple times a week to rejuvinate your skin.
