Neutrogena's Product Review at Cherry Cross
Neutrogena’s Product Review at Cherry Cross

Some brands are like your favorite cosy blanket – they have been there for as long as you can remember and are essentially fail-proof. Neutrogena is one such brand, with a loyal following regionally and internationally. And with travel season upon us, let’s see if we need their products to keep our skin flawless and camera-ready?

Recently, I got to try four products by the brand, and here’s what I think about them:

Neutrogena’s Visibly Clear Pore & Shine Daily Wash: This is one of my two favorites from the bunch. With tangerine meets mint and bumps into lime kind of fragrance, the daily wash works fabulously to take the grit off your skin, leaving it clean and refreshed. The packaging is rather simple – with clear bottle and easy to use pump. It works well for blackhead removal as well, and comes in handy when you are too lazy to remove makeup. Love it! Word of caution: People with dry skin might not love it much.

Neutrogena’s Visibly Clear Pore & Shine Daily Scrub: Now here’s a scrub that a major softy. A cream based potion, this scrub is gentle on your skin and works to minimize blackheads. Having said that, it isn’t my favorite for it doesn’t “Scrub” well. If you know what I mean…

Neutrogena’s Hand Cream: With the abundance of moisturizers available, we are shamelessly spoilt! This one, however, isn’t your sweet smelling, butter-soft creamery. This basic and boring tube contains fragrance free, fast absorbing, moisturizing  cream that works like a charm on dryness. The only thing that leaves me wanting is fragrance – life isn’t fair, but beauty products should be! Besides mindless vanity, this is a fab product to battle dryness and nourish your cuticles.

Neutrogena’s 6 Hours Protection Lip Balm: I love how it feels on my lips!! Remember good ol’ vaseline? This is an improved, beauty-oriented version of it. It’s non sticky, comes in a tube with rounded tip, and is super easy to use. It will keep your lips moisturized for quite some time (not 6 hours for me but long enough). The small tube lasts FOREVER, and is a must-buy!

Another note-worthy thing is that this product is extremely pocket-friendly and available easily. We recommend purchase, and repurchase!
