Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser Review

The Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser used in this review was sent to me for consideration by Neutrogena/their PR firm. All opinions are my own.

Neutrogena says:Neutrogena® Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser combines the superior cleansing of Neutrogena® technology with the maximum gentleness of a sensitive skin cleanser. With patented technology, this effective yet gentle formula removes excess oil, dirt and even makeup while protecting skin’s natural moisture barrier to leave it feeling soft—never too dry, never too tight. And unlike some other gentle or sensitive skin cleansers that can leave behind residue, Ultra Gentle rinses completely clean.

Baking Beauty says: This cleanser is gentle and non-drying. However, I didn’t like the scent.

Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser Review


What I loved:
1. Easily removes makeup: It easily removed my foundation, blush, mascara ect. I still find makeup wipes best for removing my mascara/eyeliner though.

2. Huge bottle: It contains around 12 ounces, and will last a long time even if you use it twice a day like I do.

3. Non-drying: This product never left my face feeling dry or flaky. (I have combination skin). It was not as moisturizing as the Simple Gel Cleanser. Keep this in mind if you have very dry skin.

4. Great Value: It only costs around 7 dollars and sometimes goes sale!

What I didn’t like:
1. The scent: I’m not sure if its a fragrance or just the natural scent of the product, but it has an unpleasant woody odor. It reminds me a lot of Clinique’s mild liquid face soap if you’re familiar with that scent. Its not unpleasant enough to stop me from using it, but its something I probably wouldn’t re purchase.

Have you tried Neuragena’s Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser? What’s your favorite face soap?
