I have tried many face washes over the years and have found some that were pretty good but not everything that I hope for. A common problem for me was the face washes were gentle on my skin but was not effective or they were very effective and left me with dry patches. I have not experienced either problem with this face wash, Neutrogena Naturals has really impressed me. I first decided to buy it because it is natural, 90% natural to be exact. I am trying to get away from any harmful chemicals but I still needed something that works. Neutrogena Naturals uses Willow Bark to make this cleanser effective. Willow bark is supposed to detox the skin and it is rich in Vitamins C, B, and E. Willow bark also contains natural salicylic acid. This does not dry out my skin, which many other face washes do, and since I have been using this my pores are so much cleaner! I experience fewer blackheads, which I used to get a lot of all the time) and I now only get the occassional hormonal breakout (and even the rare breakouts don't last as long as they used to). This face wash seems to do a pretty decent job at removing all of my makeup and I do wear a fair amount of makeup. The smell is light and one pump is all you need. One bottle usually last me for about one month. I would expect a product that works this well to cost a lot but that is not the case here. Neutrogena Naturals is so affordable and convenient because it is sold at drug stores.
I am even more satisfied with this product after I found out that it is not tested on animals, they use post consumer recycled plastic, and they support clean water and renewable energy.
I will be buying this again when I run out!

Effectiveness
This stuff really does clean out your pores. My pores appear much smaller now that all the gunk is being removed daily.

Ease of Application
One pump and your done. Just rub this cleanser in circular motion on your face for about a minute and rinse off! Easy Peasy!

Scent
This cleanser has a light scent that isn't too overpowering but it still manages to smell luxurious.

While I like Neutrogena's Natural line, I didn't particularly liked this facial cleanser. It had a rather strange scent to it and it didn't wash off my makeup very well. I don't wear a ton of makeup but it still left my eye makeup and some of my lipstick on. Now, I purposely did that because I wanted to see if this cleanser can clean off makeup as I do not want to use a makeup remover first due to time constraints. I prefer my cleansers to clean off the makeup, dirt, and grime as well as possible. I felt this one didn't do a great job.

Effectiveness
For basic cleansing, this facial product will probably do it's job. But if you're looking for something to clean thoroughly, then this gentle cleanser did not. I assume it's more of a gentle cleanser and probably good for those with sensitive skin.

Ease of Application
The pump is easy to dispense and you don't end up wasting any. I like that it comes in a decent size although I didn't use it all since I didn't find it cleansed as deeply as I liked.

Scent
It has a strange scent to it that I'm not accustomed to.

Comments about Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser:

I always try natural products because I just feel that they are not only better for the environment, but they are better for our skin and health. This cleanser is very gentle on the skin and does not cause any redness or irritation. It has never caused my skin to sting or burn. You have to use a couple pumps to get a really good lather going, but the cleanser is pretty thin so the bottle will last you a long time. I like that the dispenser is a pump because it makes it really easy to get to. The only part I do not like is that you cannot close it up to transport it, so once you open it that is basically where it has to stay. This cleanser gave me a good clean and was easily able to remove all dirt and makeup from my face after a whole day.

Scent
I did not really like the scent of this cleanser at all. It really is hard to use for longer than a minute or so because I just get grossed out. A few more ingredients to make it more of a perfume would be awesome.

Great product for all skin types.

By

Comments about Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser:

This is a great product that will be beneficial for all skin types. I like the fact that it does not contain any scent. It is a cleanser that will not make your skin feel tight. I am overall impressed by the quality of Neutrogena cleansers, I think that they are a great bargain. I also think that this particular cleanser does a fantastic job of getting rid of any makeup traces left on the skin.

Effectiveness
The cleanser does exactly what it is intended to do. I would suggest everyone to try it out because its ideal for all skin types.

Ease of Application
The cleanser is very easy to lather and is fully emollient in nature. I love the design and shape of the pump bottle.

Scent
There is no scent, which is an added benefit. Scented products can easily cause unnecessary irritation. Neutrogena is diligent about introducing products that are formulated for sensitive skin, and the fact that they choose to emit any fragrance from their products appeals to me greatly.

Effective and Natural

By 

from Pennsylvania

Comments about Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser:

I have used numerous Neutrogena products over the years. Some work great for me, others not so much. Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser is one that I really like. It works great and has many positive qualities. It is reasonably priced and I always keep an eye out for coupons to save even more. It is 90% natural which I love.

Effectiveness
This cleanser does a wonderful job of cleansing away dirt, oil, grime, and makeup from my skin. I have semi-sensitive skin and a lot of cleansers irritate and burn my face. Neutrogena Naturals did not. It felt like it cleansed my skin without over drying or tightening it. It has many natural ingredients that do an excellent job of detoxifying my skin and making it look great.

Ease of Application
I love that this comes in a pump bottle. It makes things so easy. I keep mine in the shower. It only takes one pump to wash my face.

Scent
This has a very light scent. It smells clean and refreshing.

A pretty good facial cleanser

By 

from Oakwood Vlg., OH

Comments about Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser:

Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser is a good facial cleanser. It's great for removing makeup and overall facial cleaning. It's gentle and doesn't seem to clog my pores. It doesn't give my skin that tight feeling the way some facial cleansers do after washing it off. It seems to be fairly moisturizing even after my skin dries from washing it off. It makes my skin refreshed and as if it's breathing when I wash off my makeup with this product..

Effectiveness
Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser is very effective at doing what it's used for and supposed to do. It doesn't dry my skin out or make it feel puffy or irritated after use, nor does it sting when I have a pimple or blemish on my face.

Ease of Application
The ease of application is great and it's very easy to rinse away as well. It has a slight lather to it , but not at all too soapy that it leaves a film or anything like that.

Scent
The scent is very light and refreshing. it is not at all perfumy.

Comments about Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser:

I'm a big fan of Neutrogena, and I was excited to try the Naturals products. I like most of them really well, especially the cleanser. Neutrogena products always deliver (for me). I don't find Neutrogena to be too expensive since it's sort of in the middle of the products available at drug stores and department stores, and you can usually find a coupon, which can make Neutrogena a very good deal.

Effectiveness
I really like this cleanser. It's not too heavy, so it doesn't feel oily. It also has a nice lather, so it actually feels like it's really cleaning. It rinses well for me and doesn't feel like it leaves a residue. It also doesn't leave my skin feeling dry or tight.

Ease of Application
Very easy to apply. The only complaint I have with this product is the pump bottle. I'm not a fan of those. There's always a little in the bottom that you can never get out. I usually end up putting a little water in the bottom to try to get all of the product out.

Scent
This product doesn't have much of a scent, which is great. So many products now are loaded with fragrances, it can be overwhelming.

I like this facial cleanser!

By

Comments about Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser:

The Neutrogena natural facial cleanser is a good product to have at home. I actually have this in my shower right now. This product does a great job of cleaning your face, removing dirt and removing makeup. I really like that this is a natural face wash. It is one of the major reasons that I chose to use this in the first place. I care more these days about what goes onto my face and what soaks into my skin. This facial cleanser is more friendly to your face. It is free from certain chemicals, dyes and other things. It feels better putting this on. I have sensitive skin and this face wash doesn't seem to bother it at all. It doesn't dry my skin out like other products have in the past. It also has a great pump lid option, which is great when your hands are wet. I liked it a lot. It was a good facial cleanser!

Effectiveness
It does the job of cleaning dirt, make up and anything else off of your face.

Ease of Application
It had an easy way to apply it to your face.

Scent
It really didn't have much scent to it. The scent it did have was nice, soft and fresh. I thought that it smelled good.

Good, solid product

Comments about Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser:

I purchased this product and I also purchased the Neutrogena Naturals Fresh Cleansing Makeup Remover. I use this product in the shower in the morning and the other at the end of the day to remove makeup. I bought this particular product because it contains salicylic acid and I have oily/acne prone skin. This product works well and my face doesn't feel greasy and it hasn't broken out after I have used this. One thing I do notice is that, although I claim to have oily skin my face often feels tight and dry after I use this Purifying Facial Cleanser. This has a very light scent and it's made from mostly natural ingredients, which I found very attractive. When I am ready to purchase a facial cleanser again, I think I will skip this one and buy the Fresh Cleansing one again. That one seemed gentler and it can be used on the eye area, while this one can not. I recommend this product to someone who lives in a more humid climate, perhaps. I live in the desert and that might be why this cleanser leaves my skin feeling dry, even though my skin is pretty oily.

One of my favorites.

By 

from Kittery Point, ME

Comments about Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser:

Having sensitive skin, I try to find products that work without heavy perfumes or harsh medications. This fits the bill. It did not dry my skin like some others, but still did a decent job at getting rid of oils, dirt, and makeup from throughout my day. It didn't make me smell like an old lady (which I hate, some cleansers have a heavy floral perfumed smell) but this was light. Your skin feels really clean once you are rinsed and dry, but not tight and itchy like some can leave your skin. I didn't get any redness or peeling, my skin didn't itch or feel dry. I was able to use this twice to three times a day without causing any issues with sensitivity or dryness. It's a good all around cleanser if you have sensitive skin.

Effectiveness
Cleans my skin very well without drying it out or causing a reaction.

Ease of Application
Works as you would expect it to. Foams up well with a little water in your hand.

Scent
Nice and light, not like many others on the market
