Just Can’t Get Enough: Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash

Let me tell you why I just can’t get enough of this “redness soothing gentle scrub.”

If you exercise, or even if you don’t, at some point in your life you have struggled with breakouts…on your face, your chest, your back.  Somewhere, at some time, it happened.

Trust me.  It’s easier once you’ve admitted it.

If you have spent any portion of your life in a sports bra, you know acne appearances are not limited to the jawline.

For years I toted around a bottle of Neutrogena Body Clear Body Scrub (or, more honestly, the CVS brand generic formula of the product) in my gym bag.  I would use it in the shower at the gym after working out, and admittedly I used it on my face as well as my back and chest.  It is undeniable that this product is a more harsh, abrasive formula.  It certainly eradicated any body acne, but it also caused irritation and dryness – especially to the more sensitive skin on my face.

A few years ago, when I saw Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash Redness Soothing Gentle Scrub on the shelf at CVS, I knew that I had to give it a try.  I am always in search of the all-in-one product, something that I can use both on my face and my body, so as not to take up too much precious space in my gym bag.

Neutrogena classifies it as a “facial scrub,” but I have found that the product is strong enough for use on my back and chest as well.

The microbeads gently exfoliate the skin.  Salicylic acid clears away breakouts and prevents new ones from forming.  Chamomile and aloe soothe so skin is neither red nor dry after cleansing.

Don’t get me wrong.  It’s not a miracle worker.  The occassional break out can and will pop up.

But skin is smoother, more even, less prone to breakouts and irritation when the product is used regularly.

I have been buying this product for years now — sometimes two bottles at a time (one for the gym bag, one for my shower at home) — and I cannot say enough about it.

With its hard working ingredients, fresh scent and price tag (less than $8.00!) this product has earned its rightful place in my gym bag.
