I bought this Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash and Moisturizer (Combination Skin) - Combo Pack a few months back from Nykaa.com. I have used many Neutrogena products and all were pretty good. Not extraordinary or something, but yes, a good option for daily in general use. Having Acne Prone Skin I decided to give this combo a try and today I am sharing my views on this :)
Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash
Price: Rs.549/- for 175 ML
It is an Alcohol-Free Cleanser that provides deep cleansing without over drying your skin. It penetrates deep to clean pores to help prevent pimples by removing excess oil and surface buildup. Special ingredients soothe and condition skin, leaving it clean, residue-free, and oil-free.
👉Packaging: Comes in a Transparent bottle with a Pump Packaging which makes it easy to use. I was reading all the labels and read the WARNING: NOT SUITABLE FOR SENSITIVE SKIN and I was like, oops! Because this warning was not mentioned online. 😳
👉Color & Consistency: Golden Orange in color with a runny gel consistency. Easily forms a good amount of airy foam and is soft on the skin.
👉Fragrance: Has a pleasant fragrance. Not something fruity or floral but yes it is refreshing.
👉Effectiveness: It really brings the clear, oil-free skin. I loved the effect from the first wash. Totally refreshing, bright and clear. A bit dryness was there because of Salicylic Acid which is the real ingredient which fights with acne. I don't know if the dryness was only in my case because I have Sensitive Skin and this cleanser is not for sensitive skin. So I was using this only once a day because I was really loving the fresh and oil-free look it was giving every time.
Remember, Always moisturize your skin after cleansing. No Matter you have dry or oily skin, never skip your moisturizer.
Coming to the effectiveness on Pimples, I noticed a bit reduction in the size of pimples but there was no huge result. It is only good for keeping your face oil-free, clear and bright and free from minor acne issue. But if you have sensitive skin or major acne issue, then this is not a good option for you. Instead, Go for Luxury Essentials Milk & Saffron Soap which is good for all skin types even for sensitive and acne prone. Wish it was for sensitive skin too because I really enjoy the super clear look after wash. 😍😄

Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer
Price: Rs.349/- for 118 ML
- Moisturizes and nourishes
- Won't clog pores
- Controls and reduces shine on oily areas
- Oil-absorbing microsponge system
👉Packaging: Comes in a white opaque bottle with a nozzle-pump packaging. Easy to use and also has a lock system which makes it travel-friendly too. One Pump is more than enough to cover the whole face.
👉Color & Consistency: White in color & is runny-cream inconsistency.
👉Fragrance: Has a very mild fragrance. Not overpowering at all.
👉Effectiveness: It takes a bit time to blend in and it feels a bit greasy & oily for the first few minutes. But it was totally absorbed later on. Within half 'n' hour my face was all sweaty and oily and I have to wash my face within 1 hour. I didn't find it oil-free. 😥 I also noticed a bit, Shine. I think it is a good option for dry skin people only.
This moisturizer will be oil-free only if you are sitting under the air-conditioner. 😄 I tried both, The Face Wash and Moisturizer with each other and with other cleansers & moisturizers and results were same every time.
I didn't try, but I think using a compact powder will absorb the shine & oily look! Having sensitive skin I don't use any makeup product on daily basis. Hence, this is not a good option under - Oil Free Moisturizers.
