Hey lovelies!

I hope you are all doing well. Today I want to talk about Neutrogena oil-free acne wash.

Neutrogena acne wash was one of the products used to treat my skin during my facials.

In case you didn’t know, I have very sensitive skin and I break out every now and then, it’s almost become regular. Most times it’s due to change in skincare routine/products, change of water, environment, even the weather and other times, I just break out for no known reason.

You can find my full facial experience here.

My Experience

When this cleanser was used on my face during the facial, it had this mentholated cooling feel on my face. It stung for the first few minutes but after that, it felt better.

So, I bought the cleanser to use for just my breakouts and It works to dry out all breakouts, reactions and acne with constant use.

How to use:

  • Wash your face with your usual soap or cleanser.
  • Apply the Neutrogena cream cleanser on your face and massage for a few seconds.
  • Leave on your face to dry for up to 5 mins.
  • Rinse it off.

Salicylic acid is an AHA is great for acne treatments and breakouts! Don’t forget to use sunscreen!!!

I do this for 3 days to one week straight, with other things and usually by the end of the 3rd day, my breakouts are usually completely gone. After that, I go back to my usual skincare routine until I get another reaction. 


  • Fast and immediate treatment for breakouts and acne.
  • Dries up any acne whatsoever.
  • Effective and potent.
  • Doesn’t leave your skin feeling too dry after use.
  • Long-lasting, mostly because I don’t use it every single day.


  • It leaves your skin sensitive to sunlight.
  • Not for long term everyday use.

Rating: 8/10

Neutrogena acne face wash is a go to treatment for acne and beatkouts but should not be used every day! 

If you struggle with breakouts like me or acne then consider giving this Neutrogena a try. Also note that, everyone’s skin is different and unique.

Until my next post!! Kisses! 😘
