I hope all of you are doing just well. Around 2 weeks ago Neutrogena sent me this box containing of 3 products from them to try out. I have always been an old school in skin regime, I don't normally walk out from my regular skin care brands I'm using which means I stick to one or two products I am comfortable with for years without the second thought of moving on if I find that they're really reliable to depend on like Hada Labo, B.liv and Kose, mostly Japanese and Asian brands.

As I have a dry skin (sometimes can be really dry that it sucks) Neutrogena has let me try out the hydrating line including both the foaming cleanser and makeup remover&cleanser, as well as the daily scrub for blackhead as I tend to experience a clogged pores too because I am an avid makeup user, I will at least use one or two drops of foundation on daily basis even if I'm feeling like not wearing the other makeup on.
A little bit on the brand itself, Neutrogena is among the top dermatologist recommended skincare brands, always makes a difference because Neutrogena uniquely combines proven science with the expertise and insights gained from consumers, dermatologists, and skin experts, to create effective, yet gentle products.

Neutrogena Deep Clean Hydrating Cleansing Oil To Foam (RM44.90, 142mL)
First and foremost, no skin care routine is approved without started by the makeup removal first. Neutrogena knows what the women's skins need. I am convinced that even if you cleanses your face thoroughly however without the makeup being removed first it is futile. I've stopped using my conventional cleansers and skin care products in order to test the eficacy of these Neutrogena products.
Neutrogena Deep Clean Hydrating Cleansing Oil To Foam takes form in a lightweight gel, not really oil like the name and once you slather it on your full face makeup, as you rub it on it turns into a whitish gel with a sticky consistency. That's how you use it, then gradually add a little bit of water as you rub it all over the face and it will take form into a relatively massive foam based on the amount you used. From the picture above, the transparent bottle clearly gives you the idea of how the gel looks like once you pump it on your palm. It is crystal clear and very lightweight, not heavily scented and I really feel comfortable to use this to cleanse my makeup off.
The only downside is it's not that potent enough to strip off your makeup 100%-ly, I found that there were still a little bit of the residues of eye makeup left (eye makeup can be quite stubborn tho). I like the packaging very much, the transparent bottle allows me to see how much amount is left inside with the short nozzle build which is really convenient. However if you're going to bring this in your luggage for travel, I suggest that you wash the nozzle's mouth under a running water first every time after pumping out the gel and tap the the excess water off as the diluted excess gel from the nozzle's mouth (caused by the water) might drip downwards leaving an uncomfortable feelings when you touch the bottle, slippery, soapy and what not. Overall, I mark this product to be really helpful to me and I like it very much.
Neutrogena Deep Clean Hydrating Foaming Cleanser (RM18.70, 100g )
Frankly speak, I began to feel really comfortable and compatible with this foaming cleanser, lightly scented as well as the ability to create a massive bouncy foam without stripping away the moisture that could transform my skin into an anhydrous desert. I like anything that creates an abundant foam and bubbles, it suggests me the thought that it cleanses better than the least bubbles could. Pale green in color, lighter than the color of Shrek (???), this cream foaming cleanser comes in a tube packaging. The cap is very tight, what a relief coz you can definitely bring this along in your backpack without the traces of leaking from the tube.
Neutrogena Deep Clean Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub (RM23.70, 100g)
Comes in a yellowish iridescent color with a golden beads and tiny granules.
I don't dislike this blackhead daily scrub, just that I don't think it helps much with my problem, if you live in a country with winter I don't think this is suitable for you either if you have a dry skin, Using it like once a week is fine, it is good just that it does not cope that much with my clogged pores problem which can be horrendous at times based on the weather and my daily activities (especially on my forehead and T-zone area). This blackhead scrub doubles as a cleanser too, lather it up with water and gently rub the bubbles across your face to cleanse, with the beads mixed together it helps to brush away the blackheads and dirts which outstand on your skin surface, as well as the dead skin cells. This is still a good product for people with oily and acne prone skin. Overall, my best companions of the past weeks are the hydrating foaming cleanser and the hydrating oil to foam cleanser, they're definitely my faves and I am very contented of the result it gave to my skin.
I am an average girl who hates to take selfies most of the time (welp) but I am very satisfied with how my skin turned out after using them consistently so here you go one of my aesthetic shots under the bliss of sun to show you my new improved skin, almost naked from all them heavy foundations. If you wonder what might work the best for your skin, why wait, give 'em a go now and see what a miraculous things they can do to your skin just like mine. //winks
