Friday, September 20, 2013

My Verdict 

As I already stated above I've been using the Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser for quite some time and to be honest I'm quite liking it which I was not expecting at all. Because, my previous experience was with the famous Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash so DRASTIC as that dries my skin out ridiculously even in summer and the winter is no case at all. The reason I instantly grabbed the bottle regardless of my previous experience cause of 'Pink Grapefruit Cleanser' , 'Oil-Free Face Cleanser' and 'Pink Color' . 

I've oily acne-prone skin and I've been using this product twice a day from last eight weeks and I could see an instant difference as soon as I started using it as it cleaned my pores effectively and as it is an acne cleanser so contains 2% Salicylic acid which is a fantastic yet very effective component to kill acne causing bacteria and genuinely eliminates dead cells, dirt and sebum control along with the MicroClear technology makes sure that the acne derivative component penetrates deep inside the skin to un-clog the clogged pores and debris residues effectively. Thus, helps preventing acne and helps clearing blemishes slightly quicker than normal.

I love how it thoroughly cleanses my face and love how it does prevent occasional breakouts and pimples. The cleanser foams really well and feels slightly slippery when applied and massages on the face but it doesn't mean you need to get quite an ample amount to work with. Just half a pump has been more than enough for one time use. With having almost 100% pink grapefruit extract and vitamin C, it does smell really citrus-y smell which is quite uplifting. I love how does it washes away all impurities on my face especially in the morning as its really wakes me up like my Clean & Clear Morning Burst Shine Control Facial Cleanser  (my HG facewash for sure) and feels quite gentle on my skin leaving it softer, squashy clean and supple without being dry unlike Neutrogena oil-free acne wash.

It comes with a pump and 177 ml going to last you easily for a month or two without being heavy on the pocket. However, the pump bottle is not so travel friendly at all as it tends to get a leak in your toiletry bag and messy around. It certainly is one of the best oil free acne cleanser which keeps excessive oil at its bay for about good 4-5 hours by giving my skin natural glow without leaving it tight or dry after wash.

You Might Like It

  • You having oily/combination skin.
  • You are looking for a cleanser that can combat acne.
  • You are looking for acne face wash.
  • You like citrus-y but uplifting scent.
  • You want an oil free cleanser.
  • You are looking for a cleanser that doesn't dries out your skin.
You Might Not Like It

  • You have dry/normal skin.
  • You don't like citrus smell.
  • You think its expensive.

My Rating


Overall, I must say I've found my another HG facial cleanser after Clean & Clear Morning Burst and Pond's Pure White Deep Cleansing Facial Foam. Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser priced 725 PKR and available at all leading super stores nationwide and/or you can get it from I can't wait to try other products from Pink Grapefruit range.

  1. I'm also looking for a cleanser to help me get rid of my pimples that pop out every time I get stressed..but I don't know if this one is good for me since my skin type is dry..

    Secrets Of Camille ❤

    1. If you have dry skin then I'm afraid Camille it's not going to help you out since its best suited for people having combination/oily skin as it will rip off your natural oil from your skin xx

  2. Nicely reviewed girl :) Looks a great product to me

  3. Great review! Sounds like a lovely product :)

    xoxo Iris

  4. Great review! This would be perfect in fighting acne :)

  5. I need to try this! great review!
    check out my latest look:

  6. It's really hard finding something or my oily skin that balances it out without stripping or drying it. I will try this if I can find it!

    1. I agree and I too don't like the Oil-Free Acne wash version but this truly surprised me by not ripping off my facial oil and didn't try my skin out ...

  7. Good rating, I agree, feels very nice and soft after using it for me as well. I just don't like the grapefruit smell! D:

    From Likkie,

    1. I'm glad Likkie that you liked it too however I do agree citrus-y grapefruit smell may be overpowering for some people out there :) xx

  8. I tried this one and love it... the only problem was that I really do not like the grapefruit smell :S

  12. This sounds great and I'm glad to hear it doesn't dry skin out, that always seems to be my biggest problem with facial cleansers.

  13. I do love Neutrogena as a brand they seem to be so kind to the skin - thank you for a lovely review x

  14. I have actually tried this before. It's a little drying for everyday use for me, but I DO like to save it for use when I am having a breakout. It takes care of those times when your skin's a little oily very well.
