Most Helpful Positive Review My skin feels rejuvenated and refreshed
I would have to say the Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser is my favourite cleanser of any brand. It really does give a deep clean to reveal rejuvenated and fresh looking skin, and works well to remove makeup. The only thing I would like to see improved with this product (and it's relatively minor) is that it could lather up more. I find I have to give it 3 pumps into my hand to get up a good lather. Thank you for your time. Maree.
Most Helpful Critical Review Itchy, Dry Skin with Bumps!
I took a look at the ingredients and thought I would give this a try. I should have looked more carefully because "Propylene Glycol" is in it, and it's a pore-clogging ingredient. After only two uses, my skin started itching and burning like crazy. I'm trying not to touch the bumps that it has given me, but it is so hard to resist because the itching just won't stop. Now, I'm highly afraid that it will cause scarring. I stopped using it immediately. Never buying this again. I thought I would give Neutrogena another try, now I know I won't go near it again.

Gretaaa from Des Moines, Iowa
I got this a week ago, and after one wash, my husband and I both had itchiness, small bumps, and very dry skin around face and neck. We both don't have sensitive skin so we were very surprised by the abrupt negative reaction with our skin.
Oldie but goodie, Love this cleanser !
Daynah from Bay Area, CA
Love the smell and how clean my face feels, doesn't over dry and works well with my toner and face oil!
Stripped my skin and broke me out
Carissa from Baltimore, MD
At first I thought my skin was purging as I have fairly combination/oily acne prone skin. But then my skin just continued to become dry, red and flaky and breakout more in places I don't normally breakout. It's not been pretty. This product is just too strong. If you have really oily skin and use a good moisturizer after this it may be good for you. But it certainly has made my skin worse.
Ruined my skin
KSMITH86 from Charlotte
This product should be banned. I used it for 2 days and it dried out my skin so bad. Here it is a week later and even after I stopped using it my skin still is so dry and peeling. I want a refund immediately.
The BEST Cleanser Ever!
Mistyjewels73 from North Liberty, indiana
I have used this cleanser for years and I absolutely love it! My pores were always large and clogged up with alot of blackheads growing up and this is the only cleanser that made my pores clean and small. My skin is smooth and bright at 47 years old and no one believes my age! Thank you for such a great product!

Ruscarelys Cañizalez from Panamá

Miracle for me
jesieve from Arizona
I was on accutane and tried 10 different face washes. My husband used this for 10 years. I tried it and then finally my skin is clear and glowing.

Don't buy this please
Queen20 from NJ
I had severe itchiness, rash and burn all over my face after one use. I don't have a sensitive skin. It has been about 2 months and my face is still dry, and dark because of the chemical burn.
My skin never felt better. Clean and healthy.
Happy Canadian from Ontario Canada
I've been using it for years and people always told me how nice and healthy my face looked.
Polly39 from Houston, TX
I used this face was since high school, now I will be turning 40 this year. This face wash is simple, no nonsense and works perfectly. would recommend it to women if all ages with normal, to oily or dry skin.
What moisturizer should be used with this product?
dae420 from MI
I'm getting ready to use this product and am not sure what moisturizer to tag along with it. Suggestions would be great!
Melsss from undisclosed
I've been using it for forever and it is amazing! I definitely don't understand why the reviews are so los if the bottle clearly says oily to normal skin. If you know how to read a label and know what type of skin you have, then you'll know if this is the right product for you! I will definitely continue using! This was recommended to me by a dermatologist and I love that it's fragrance free and that it keeps my skins in the adequate ph levels
Stopped my acne breakouts
Queen E from Singapore
I have been using this product since 1995 during my teenage years and I still continue to use if this day. It has saved my skin from acne breakouts when puberty hits and slowly with repeated use, I no longer have any bad acne breakouts except for random pimples that doesn't cluster at one spot. I see results slowly but surely with repeated use. I'm in my 40s now and the cleanser still works well for my skin.
KayLang from Hampton, NH
I'm 37 with oily skin, enlarged pores and occasional breakout. I've been searching for the right cleanser for years and within a week this has been a total game changer for me. Pores are smaller, no acne, skin feels soft and and clean. I follow up with a rose water toner and moisturizer. I will continue to use this cleanser!!
Chemical burns on face
Chelsea from Atlanta, GA
I've tried other Neutrogena products and it has been fine. This product gave me chemical burns with one use!! It left my skin red and itchy for days!!
The perfect product for my face
Brenda05 from Pretoria, South Africa
I have been using this cleanser for many years. I love the way it keeps my face very smooth and clear, can't live without it.
My best cleanser
Tomadeupjazz from AZ
This is the best cleanser I have tried for oily skin. I wear makeup almost everyday. I use a gel type makeup remover and then wash my face with this. I follow up with a makeup remover wipe and there is literally no makeup on the wipe after checking my face. That's how it should be, this cleanser WORKS!! It can be drying so I suggest not taking to long when washing your face with this, I like to smooth it around for about 20 seconds and then rinse. Longer than that you're probably sucking out ALL the oil from your skin and that's not good. I always come back to this after trying other good but not great face washes so this is a winner
Burned my skin!
Rose22a from Texas
I only used this for two days and it burned my face! My skin became very tight and dry and even flaky! I have what seems like very chapped lips that are cracking and flaking as well.
Do not BUY!
Tasha from Whittier, Ca
I used this product 3 times. The night I got it, the morning after and that night. I woke up to my face blotchy red, itchy, and a slight burning sensation. It has resulted in little bumps all over my face, I would describe it like a cat's tongue. I take pretty good care of my skin and My skin is not sensitive at all, this kind of reaction has NEVER happened to me.
Do I have oily skin?
Shannoel from Elkhart, IN
Make sure you TRULY have oily skin. I thought I did, but MAN did my face dry out with this. Even with the oil free moisturizer, my skin started getting flaky patches. I will say my acne is clearing up, though.
crysta8548 from Chesapeake, VA
I decided to try a new facial cleanser and I wish I would have read the reviews!!!!!!!! I used it for 2 days, and my face burned terrible and became very dry. I stopped using 3 days ago and my face is still burning, feels extremely tight and I have red blotches all over!!!! My face has never looked this horrible before!!!!
Works for me!
jduh12 from undisclosed
I've been using this for only a couple of days, but I love the product so far!! My combination skin doesn't feel dried out after a wash before mousturizing!
BAD Reaction! Burnt Skin
babbacabra from Wichita, KS
I used this product 2 times and woke up with a severe allergic reaction or chemical burn. Severe burning, redness, swelling, bumps, and itching. Going on day 2 without use and still have symptoms.
I have used many Neutrogena products in the past and currently use one of their moisturizers, and have never experienced this. Something must be wrong with the batch I received or with the ingredients. I do not have sensitive skin, so this was very alarming. DO NOT BUY!
Burnt my skin and gave me acne
spooky22 from Ohio
Literally used this product for two days ~ by the third day, my lips were super chap, I had dozens of whiteheads on my chin, and my entire face was rough and dry. I cannot believe they are allowed to sell this product.
