Salicylic Acid Acne treatment
Does not contain plastic microbeads
I love that these Neutrogena products contain extracts of grapefruit and salicylic acne treatment. It's been known that some citrus fruits such as grapefruit can help reduce hyperpigmentation. I usually have hyperpigmentation issues on my cheeks during PMS, and last week was no different. I noticed a change after using both products. The dark spots were fading quicker than usual.
Both products are oil free acne washes which is good for me because during PMS I have acne prone oily skin. I use products with Salicylic acid since salicylic acid may helps reduce my acne acne temporarily. Over the course of last week, I used these products every other day since salicylic acid tends to dry my skin. By using these products every other day, my skin doesn't feel dry. Outside of PMS week, I'll only use a facial scrub once or twice a week. The cleansers makes my face feel refreshed and the scrub is gentle and lathers well. I thought these products were going to have a strong grapefruit scent. The grapefruit smells really good and the scent isn't overpowering, or at least to me the scent isn't too strong.
If you have combination skin (normal/oily) like I have, this cleanser and scrub may work well for you. Both products are oil free, but as I mentioned they're not drying. the Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Acne Wash Cleanser and Acne Wash Scrub have become a staple in my skincare routine!
