Curtain Call: Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Scrub
First things first, it’s been a while. I know in my last post I talked about coming back regularly but life has a funny way of derailing well-intended plans. I may write about it later on someday but now’s not the time. It’s still kinda raw. BUT! I do have a new post today and it’s a Curtain Call entry. Today’s post is on a product I purchased a long, long time ago. Like many beauty product lovers, I rotate through a lot of different products over time. This one finally bit the dust. Here’s my thoughts on the Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Scrub.
Stated on the back of the tube:
Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Scrub
cleanses and gently exfoliates skin in one
easy step for refreshingly clean skin.
Easily removes all traces of dirt, oil and makeup from deep within pores.
Gentle microbeads help wash away dead skin cells, leaving skin soft and smooth.
Rinses completely clean, with no pore-clogging residue for refreshingly clean skin.
What I love about this product? I love face scrubs. In fact, I find a lot of facial scrubs in the market not as abrasive as I’d like to be. Well, this does not disappoint but I do think it’s a teeny bit too scrubby for even my used and abused facial skin. And I’ve used a lot of scrubs. So if you want a really scrubby face scrub, this is it. But the solution is simply to put less pressure on your face while you scrub, which I did so this is a non-issue for me. I would describe the scent as citrus but not close to the real thing. Definitely not cleaner citrus, which I hate, so that’s good. A little bit goes a long way, which is why this last so long in addition to I rotate through facial scrubs and cleansers a lot. It produces a surprisingly large amount of bubbles and lather. It leaves my face feeling very, very clean and refreshed after using it.
What I don’t like about this product? I’m pretty sure it’s been discontinued unfortunately. When I tried to look up this product to see how much it sells for currently I found a facial cleanser version of it instead. I’m not sure if it’s the same thing and just renamed or it’s a lighter version of it (I honestly think it’s the microbeads in this though) or if this is a separate version to begin with that hasn’t been discontinued.
