The Bottom Line

A simple, sweet-smelling acne wash for less. It's an especially cleansing wash for oily skinned folks.

Guide Review - Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit

Neutrogena is a personal favorite of mine, and this acne wash is no exception. Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash is a no-frills type of acne wash, but the pink grapefruit scent makes it really special.

This basic cleanser foams up well and rinses clean. It leaves your skin feeling clean. Be aware, it can be drying to those who have drier skin.

The pink grapefruit scent is nicely sharp and citrusy. If you don't like strong scents, it can be overpowering. If you're not in love with the scent, this product also comes in the original fragrance.

Like all Neutrogena products, it's easy to find at your local drug store and the price is right. I can see this being a favorite of teen girls.

In general, this is a great bargain cleanser for those with oily skin.

Be careful - I've used other Neutragena products without reaction but when I used this product once I had an allergic reaction. My skin became very dry, tight and irritated with small little lumps like tiny little pimples all around my chin and lips that blistered and burned. Very painful.
