Review - Neutrogena Visibly Clear Daily Scrub

"Double action for tightened pores and mattified skin, providing a flawless-looking complexion."

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pore & Shine Daily Scrub*

I've been testing this face scrub out for about a month now; using it every other night as part of my usual skincare routine, and overall I've been pretty impressed by it. Before I started using it my skin was feeling pretty crappy; I was getting quite a few spots and it was feeling congested and dull. Luckily this scrub made my skin feel healthy and happy again, and I woke up with much brighter, less dull skin every morning. ^_^

The Neutrogena scrub says it "visibly mattifies the skin and helps tighten pores". I would say that it does mattify the skin because, even though I use it at night just before I put on a heavy moisturiser, my skin has been feeling a little less oily and whenever I use it in the morning (probably about once a week) I find that my skin holds makeup better and basically just looks less shiny. As for tightening pores I haven't noticed too much of a change. I don't have huge pores anyway but this scrub hasn't made much of a difference to my pores. Maybe it would work more effectively for someone with larger pores. :)

My favourite thing about this product has got to be the smell. I seriously love it! It's a very fresh and fruity scent with lime and tangerine. I'm not sure how much I'll love it in the winter but in Spring and Summer this has the perfect scent. Sometimes scented products can make my skin feel a little more sensitive than normal but this scrub hasn't done that, but it may if you have incredibly sensitive skin that doesn't react well to fragrance.   

Overall I'd definitely recommend this product especially for people with quite oily skin. I have combination skin and have found that it balances it out very well so it seems ideal for combination, normal or oily skin, but maybe not so much dry skin. If you are prone to spots or you want your skin to appear brighter, this scrub may be perfect for you, but remember that everyone's skin is unique to some products that work for me may not work for you. You can get this scrub from Boots for £4.49 - here

Lots of love, Cat
