Neutrogena Pure Mild Facial Cleanser

Posted on: June 13, 2011

I “borrowed” this cleanser from my younger sister, hence I only used this several times and my review here would be brief one. Generally cleanser does not require intensive test because the cleansing power could be seen clearly and it eventually would be rinsed off from skin within a minute. That is why I decided to make a quick review of this cleanser.

Neutrogena Pure Mild Facial Cleanser has gel consistency, tinted and it has not-so-pleasant plastic chemical smell for me. Only a pump needed for generating lathers and it foamed up fast. Skin felt squeaky clean, feeling refreshing after washing in hot and humid climate. My sister and I both have sensitive skin, and this cleanser did not irritate our skin apparently.

You might need to take note it contains SLES (Sodium Laureth Sulfate) that some of you wanted to avoid eventhough SLES is known less irritating than SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate). While the cosmetics company tells you their product is fragrance-free and it is mild for all skin types, they just did not tell you the product contains other irritating ingredients. You will gain the fact by checking the ingredient list although that requires a little bit common knowledge of skin care ingredient.

As you can see from my testing picture, it has very good cleansing power. Although the shimmering lipstick was not completely removed but I think at least 95% was done. This retails for THB190/150ml in Thailand in major supermarket and pharmacy. Howver, my sister and I are not going to re-purchase/purchase this since she is into Korea skin care recently and I got my own favorite cleansers with much better ingredients.

I used this a long long time ago, at a time when I was in university with no budget whatsoever! That’s before I discovered J-brands (and then K-brands)…

I find that Biore, at around or below the price of Neutrogena, is much milder as well, with a really pleasant fragrance too. Still, this one isn’t bad, but like you said, there are cheap Japanese or Korean cleansers with much better ingredients. 🙂

Hi Joseibi,
In the past I was a poor university student who only able to afford Biore cleanser, even Neutrogena liquid cleanser was out of my budget. (“D) When I was in my first job, a milder UK Simple cleanser was my No.1 favorite but it actually contains SLES too. Fortunately now we have lots of excellent skin care products on the market and abundant info on internet. (“v)
