    Comments about Neutrogena Pore Refining Exfoliating Cleanser:

    I bought this product based on reviews, prices and the fact that it claimed to refine pores without drying the skin. The first wash left my skin feeling tight, which in a sense was ok, since i could relate that to "refining my pores", but by the third day my skin was so dry that nothing could moisturize it enough. My chin and cheeks had it worse, and it even affected the area under my chin. Extremely drying! However I DID notice my pores becoming less visible, so its unfortunate that i couldn't continue using this.

      Comments about Neutrogena Pore Refining Exfoliating Cleanser:

      Unfortunately this one just did not work for me. This cleanser is VERY drying and would work best for extremely oily skin types. It did make my pores tiny, but my skin was very uncomfortably tight and after just 3 uses my chin began flaking despite the extra moisturizer I would use to counterbalance the effects of the cleanser.

          I used this product only a couple of days and it made my skin burn. I had to stop using it. My face looked like I had gotten a sunburn. My face actually peeled. Very disappointed and mad because I'm out of the money I paid for it.

          Comments about Neutrogena Pore Refining Exfoliating Cleanser:

          This cleanser works great with my Clarisonic. I use less than a half a pumps worth both morning and evening. My acne prone, sensitive, 40 plus skin is not at all irritated by this product. I have used many of the higher end as well as drugstore cleansers and found many of them too drying or they made me they made me break out. This product has improved the texture of my skin and doesn't leave my skin tight after cleansing. If I have been wearing make up I do use a make up remover and a make up wipe before using this. You can't beat the price point! I have paid much more for products that haven't performed as well as this one. I would definitely recommend this to a friend and I will continue to repurchase this product.

            I will be returning this to Ulta because it has "blistered" my skin. Everywhere I washed with this product now is covered with a bumpy red rash, somewhat like tiny blisters.

                I use this twice a day; in the morning when I wake up, and at night to help remove my makeup. It does reduce the size of your pores, as I saw the first time using it, but as for exfoliating, not so much. The texture of it is creamy and smooth - most exfoliating products have a gritty type feel to it. This however, does not, so I doubt much exfoliating is getting done. But if you're using this product especially for shrinking your pores (like I am) then this would be great for you! It really improves the look of your skin. Definitely will repurchase if needed.

                  Comments about Neutrogena Pore Refining Exfoliating Cleanser:

                  I picked up this product based on the price and that it claimed to refine pores and exfoliate. The first time I used it, I noticed that I could barely feel the exfoliation beads, I understand that they're micro beads, but I expected that the texture would still be somewhat gritty like the other exfoliating products I've used, I was wrong. The substance itself is creamy and smooth which renders it virtually ineffective as the alpha-hydroxy formula can't penetrate past the layer of natural skin oils by itself.

                  In addition to it not working at all and leaving my face feeling greasy, it stinks! It smells absolutely horrible and for the week or two that I attempted to give it a chance, I would dread the thought of that smell. As I was rinsing, it would get in my nose and the stink of it often lasted 2-3 hours, even if I attempted to rinse the inside of my nose as much as I could.

                  Don't bother with this product.
