This dermatologist-tested formula with Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids and Microbeads delivers visible results. First, it sweeps away dead surface skin and refines rough, uneven patches.

Wet your face and hands with lukewarm water. Squeeze cleanser into your hands and apply to skin. Massage with a gentle, circular motion, avoiding contact with the delicate eye area.

Comments about Neutrogena Pore Refining Cleanser:

I purchased this because my normal Neutrogena face wash is no longer available. I bought it specially for the glycolic in it because that's what works for me. Was fine using it twice a day for an entire week then my skin dried out. I got a burning and itchy rash on my neck and jawline because the micro beads were too harsh for my sensitive skin. Had to lay off the wash for a week before my skin balanced back to normal. But I will continue to use this product because I love the cleanliness and feel of it. It kept my skin clear and felt so refreshing. However I will only use it 1-2 times a week! My boyfriend also experienced dryness and he washes once a day. We will both be cutting back.

    Comments about Neutrogena Pore Refining Cleanser:

    I was so excited to use it. Literally 5 uses later, my ENTIRE face is dry. A day later, now it's peeling and red and burns when I use lotion. My entire face. Around my eyes, my EYELIDS!! If you want to use this, you better soak your face in moisturizer after. I'll probably limit my use to a few times a week and buy face lotion to prevent an entire layer of skin from peeling off my face again :,)

    Dried out irritated skin!

    Comments about Neutrogena Pore Refining Cleanser:

    I do not have sensitive skin by any means. However, I just bought the pore refining cleanser and used it once a day for 3 days in a row and my chin, lips, and lower cheek areas were severely irritated and severely dry and felt like they were sunburnt by the middle of the third day. I immediately stopped use to let my skin heal. It has been 2 days since I stopped using the cleanser and my skin is still dried out and it feels and looks like I got a chemical peel treatment.

    I would definitely advise against daily use of this cleanser. It does work to minimize pores but I dont think this cleanser is needed daily. More like once a week, if that.

    Note: This product does advise that you use sunscreen with spf after using the cleanser, which I did. The product also advises you to stop or limit use of cleanser if you experience dryness or irritation.

      Comments about Neutrogena Pore Refining Cleanser:

      It's very much a wonderful product! But ever since I started using it I noticed my eyebrows (that are usually black) are getting lighter (pretty much blonde)at the ends. Could this cause your eyebrows to get lighter? Has anyone else had this happen to them?

            Comments about Neutrogena Pore Refining Cleanser:

            I've been using it for a week. Cleared up some stubborn breakouts that didn't want to go away within days. I use it daily and I don't find It drying. I've got skin which is quite dry and prone to breakdowns deep under the skin. I don't usually love neutrogena products but this one seems to be better than lots of other stuff I've tried. The smell isn't fantastic but I don't mind it. Highly recommended.
