Don’t bother – Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Daily Scrub 150ml
I would just like to say that here at COPD I try to review products and ranges from different price points. I realise that not everyone will spend as much money as I do on Molton Brown etc. so I try to vary what I review. In the same vain I also have a ‘ceiling’ of how much I’m wiling to spend on something so I doubt you will ever see a body scrub or face wash on here that would cost £50+. If you do it means I’ve won the lottery!
I’ve used Neutrogena off and on for over 15 years now sometimes their stuff is great other times it’s not. I was quite looking forward to using this scrub, I knew it wasn’t going to be like using Aesop but I did think it would be a pleasant experience. Boy was I wrong! Jamie tried it first, came out of the bathroom and shook his head. He mumbled something about it being useless and that there weren’t any scrubbing grains. I did the hand over the ears not listening la la la thing and went off to wash my face. Firstly, when you open that cap the grapefruit smell is really zingy and refreshing. I squirted a blob in my hand added a bit of water and rubbed it round my face only to feel no micro-beads as promised. It doesn’t even lather up it just turns white and stays in gel form. I washed my face quite vigorously to see if the beads would get into action and that didn’t happend either. The lovely pink grapefruit scent slowly turned into a very fake almost chlorine like smell so I couldn’t wait to get this off my face. The most annoying thing was that my skin didn’t even feel clean. I used my Aesop toner afterwards to see if there would be any dirt on the pad and sure enough there was! What a shame I was looking forward to singing it’s praises but sadly I cannot. Meh!
