As I looked upon my bathroom I realized that one of my favorite cleansers of all time, Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser, has been in use in my home for years, and yet, I have never reviewed it. Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser, is a great cleanser and has been my HG (Holy Grail) low end cleanser for more years than I can count. Why spend $$$ when a product costing around $6.50 will work wonders, if not better than many of the high end cleansers on the market.
Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser is not drying, won’t clog pores, does a great job removing makeup without irritating, stripping, or otherwise adversely affecting even sensitive skin, or eyes.
Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser is soap-free, oil-free, non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores) and hypoallergenic.
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION aka what it claims to do straight from the Neutrogena website:
“Fresh Foaming Cleanser is a cleanser and makeup remover in one. Removing makeup before you go to bed has never been easier. This dermatologist-tested formula effectively removes dirt, oil and makeup. It even removes eye makeup, without soaps or oils that can sting or irritate the sensitive eye area. No more raccoon eyes! It rinses completely and won’t leave any pore-clogging residue. Forget the excuses and get refreshingly clean skin and complete makeup removal in one step.”
DIRECTIONS for use, straight from the Neutrogena website linked at the bottom of the page: “Wet your face and hands with lukewarm water. Pump cleanser into your hands and work into lather. Massage lather onto skin with a gentle, circular motion. Rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry with a soft towel.”
My conclusion: While Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser is a very basic cleanser, it is the best basic cleanser/makeup remover combo on the market for the price point. It does what it claims. It cleanses your skin without irritation, stripping, or breakouts. Though, I suggest using a facial wipe to first remove excess eye makeup, bronzer, blush, lipstick, or heavy foundation should you happen to be made up heavily for your particulalr occasion, as doing so will ease your cleansing experience. Though, to be honest I always recommend everyone to do this to help loosen the beautiful canvas that has been crafted for the day/night regardless of their cleanser of choice.
As everyone should know by now, you can’t get your face clean with one wash, you must wash it at least twice at night to get the day, let alone your makeup, off of your face. Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser will remove your makeup and debris without irritation. If you haven’t tried this product yet, and are looking for a lower cost cleanser/makeup remover in one, I highly recommend that you give Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser a try. An added plus is that it is generally gentle enough to use on skin that is being treated with prescriptions strength retinol.
Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser is available at almost every store in the United States, many of which have great return policies, just incase it doesn’t work for you, as we all know, no one has the exact same skin situation. Happy shopping.
