REVIEW: Liquid Neutrogena Pure Mild Facial Cleanser

9:06:00 PM

This is the facial wash I bought after I emptied out my celeteque facial wash. I used this for 3 days and guess what happened... I had another set of breakouts! yayks!  The breakouts I suffered from the Sansan face powder hasn't even cleared out yet and here comes another one. (sigh)

What I like about it...
* inexpensive
* fragrance-free
* lathers very well
* my face doesn't feel dry after washing

What I don't like...
* After using this for 3 days (morning and night) I had allergies and breakouts. There were four big bumps on my right cheek and it was really itchy. I stopped using it right away and my face stopped itching. The bumps stopped increasing as well. So it' very evident that this product caused the breakouts and allergies.
* It says hypoallergenic, that's why I gave it a try. Big Mistake!
I honestly thought this would help clear out my pimples... only made it worse.

My rating: 1/ 5

This is a definite fail for me. Too bad though, there's so much product left on the tube and it will just go to waste. I am now using Human Nature Hydrating Facial Wash with Moringa & Aloe Vera extract, so far so good.

Have you had any bad experience with a facial wash before?

This is it for now.

  1. Awwww. Too bad it didn't work well on you. I have always been a Pond's user when it comes to facial cleansers and no breakouts so far. :)

  2. sorry to hear that it didn't work on you... I am also a ponds user ever since but tried using celeteque few years far so good

  3. Aww i tried celeteque but this FW made me break out. i do have pretty sensitive skin that makes me really picky with every product i use! my mom told me to use water (alone) to wash my face! and its effective(for me)and ive been using Nisce peel white for the dark spots :) and its really amazing! no more breakouts!I hope you do find one that suits your skin hollie!

  4. @Aya, Pond's made me break out...huhu

    @Debi, good for you that you don't have sensitve skin.

    @The Beauty_Addict, I have sensitive skin too, that's why it's really hard for me to find products that work...hay naku...

  5. Woaaahh... Maybe if you found something that you don't break out from, stick to that nalang. :-/ Scary!

  6. @Michelle, yeah I'm planning on doing just that. I'm afraid of more breakouts na! This is what I get for trying out so many products...LOL

  7. ayyy so sad... :( some products marked as hypo allergenic will still have a tendency to break you out that's why i'm sometimes scared to try new products.

  8. we have this sitting in our bathroom for so long (unused).. i guess my sibling who bought this also encountered a breakout :| btw, i tagged you

  9. try using daw Cetaphil mam... mild mn kaau na xa...

  10. @sugar sugar yes, so true. I hate myself for always wanting to try out new products.

    @Hazel, I had friend who encountered a breakout too with this product. there must be something in this that causes breakouts.

    @Anonymous, I've used cetaphil before, that's also what my son uses. But I find it too mild for me, I feel like it doesn't clean at all.

  11. ay too bad you're allergic sis! my HG facial wash is from celeteque, mas cheaper sha than neutrogena and it doesnt dry out my skin.

  12. @shopcoholic, yeah I used celeteque facial wash when you suggested it to me before. I really did like it and finished the whole bottle. I just wanted to try out other products..hehe
