The Truth About Neutrogena Pore Refining Cleanser
Neutrogena Pore Refining Exfoliating Cleanser is first and foremost an effective microbead exfoliator that sloughs away dead skin as you wash to keep the face clean to prevent breakouts. Some dermatologists recommend that you do not exfoliant more than twice a week. This is meant to be a daily cleanser. Exfoliating this often with sensitive skin with such a drying formula can leave your skin looking really parched. It is recommended that you pair this item with a Neutrogena moisturizer if you plan on using it consistently and are experiencing dryness or are prone to flaky skin.The product has been effective for many users who suffer from oversized pores and blackheads. It has not been useful for those users who suffer from severe or cystic acne. If your main issue is acne, I would get a product that treats breakouts fast rather than a product that works to slowly overtime improve the complexion. You really do need patience with this product and to put in the time until new skin cells regeneration and tighten the pores. It wasn’t until a month of using this product I really understood why it has rave reviews. IF you have the time and aren’t suffering from dry skin or bad breakouts, I would give this affordable Neutrogena product a chance.
