After noticing my skin was getting progressively drier I stopped using a face wash aimed at oily skin and switched to much gentler washes. My skin has thanked me for it on the whole, but I’ve noticed that I have these blocked pores that just won’t shift and my Origins Out of Trouble Mask just isn’t able to cope- only being used once a week- therefore I decided I needed a daily wash that contained salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is a BHA and is really good at helping to exfoliate skin and unclog those pesky pores.
Being on a budget and wanting something with a decent strength of Salicylic acid, I quickly popped onto Google and decided that The Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit wash was the one for me. I read somewhere it contained 2% Salicylic acid which is pretty strong for an OTC product. It doesn’t say that on the product itself but Salicylic acid is pretty high up on the list of ingredients.
The wash itself is a thick cream which is a pale pink and smells wonderful. It’s very grapefruity and refreshing- which I love- but there’s also a hint of menthol in there so it’s a little tingly too.
After washing my face feels clean but not stripped, which I’m happy about as not only does having tight skin feel uncomfortable but sometimes if I overwash my skin it goes into reverse and goes super oily, so I end up with my makeup sliding right off. I’ve not noticed that any of my current blocked pores have disappeared but I haven’t had any new ones which I am definitely pleased with.
I’m really impressed with the Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Cream Wash. It’s a really good price and it works so well. It smells amazing and the best part is that it’s helping to keep away my blemishes and blocked pores without drying my skin or making it more oily.
