NEUTROGENA Shine Control Daily Scrub
Don’t you hate it when you step out of the house in the morning looking fresh-faced and flawless only to suffer from oil slicked skin before the afternoon is even over? It kinda ruins all the effort you put into perfecting your look, doesn’t it?
Luckily, there’s an effective oily skin solution at hand and it goes by the name of NEUTROGENA® DEEP CLEAN® Shine Control Daily Scrub. Formulated with oil absorbing rice protein technology, the daily face scrub not only sloughs away skin impurities and excess surface oil, but it also acts like a ‘micro-sponge’ on your complexion, absorbing 85 per cent of oil build-up. Which means you’ll have a fresher looking face for much longer – hoorah!
The scrub also contains salicylic acid to help deep cleanse your pores and target blemishes at the source. But don’t just take our word for it – read our Trial Team’s reviews of NEUTROGENA® DEEP CLEAN® Shine Control Daily Scrub to find out what they thought of their road-test…
NEUTROGENA® DEEP CLEAN® Shine Control Daily Scrub
“I am a fan of many Neutrogena skin care products so I was excited when BH sent me their Shine Control Daily Scrub. This product is targets my skin type perfectly, as I have oily/combination skin that is prone to shine throughout the day which usually requires me to blot my skin…Upon application the scrub felt nice and smooth. The scrub doesn't lather up too much on the skin but it still does a good job at cleansing the skin and removing impurities. The exfoliating beads are not irritating or rough on the skin, which was the most important thing for me. I have tried many scrubs in the past that have been very abrasive and have done more damage than good, so I was very pleased that this scrub had gentle yet effective exfoliating beads. On some nights I would massage the product into my skin for a good 1-2 minutes, and the beads still did not irritate my skin or cause any extreme redness…
Neutrogena recommends using the product daily for best results, which at the start of the trial, I did follow. However after 5 days of using the product daily, I began to feel as though my skin was overproducing oil because my skin was being stripped too much. My cheeks, which are usually normal, also began to feel quite dry and tight. I tend to only use a facial exfoliating scrub 2-3 times a week, which is what I began to do with the Neutrogena scrub. Using the product 2-3 times a week depending on how my skin was feeling really worked well for me. So I recommend that those using this product get a feel for how your skin reacts to the product, and tailor usage to fit your skin needs.
Overall the scrub did live up to its claims I believe. The exciting and innovative addition to this cleanser was the rice protein technology, which is used to absorb excess oil throughout the day and allow the skin to breathe. Even after my first use, I monitored my skin throughout the day to see how long it took to get shiny, and I found my skin stayed matte significantly longer than when I didn't use this scrub. That was wonderful for me as it is really bothersome to have to continually be checking your skin to see whether or not it needs to be blotted. My pores felt and looked visibly clearer after 2 weeks of using the product. I didn't break out while using this product too, which was great. Overall I think this is a great inexpensive scrub, which helps keep my skin clear and holds off the shine throughout the day which is great.” - Aleksandra
