Ensure every last pollution particle is swept away from your face with the Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Foaming Cleanser. A pea-sized amount of this product is all you need to whip up a dense foam in your palms.

Designed for sensitive skin, the cleanser is powered by Amino Micellar Technology, which dives deep into your pores to remove 99%* of impurities and micropollutants without disrupting your skin’s barrier. Since it also retains 99% of your skin’s natural moisture, you’ll be left with moist, supple, rebalanced skin after every wash.

What’s more, the cleanser has an optimal pH level that sits between 4 and 6 – a slightly acidic state that allows your skin to perform its best. With continued use, you’ll notice clearer, healthier, more radiant skin that’s able to fight against the effects of pollution better.

Summary

All of our reviewers agreed that the Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Foaming Cleanser was able to cleanse their skin thoroughly without stripping it of moisture. All of them were impressed by how they were able to produce a dense lather with just a small amount of the cleanser.

They also enjoyed the subtle, floral scent of the cleanser. For most, the cleanser left their skin feeling comfortable and balanced throughout the day. One reviewer even skipped moisturiser after cleansing and found that her skin was still supple at the end of the day.

Some also noticed brighter, more radiant skin in just five days. In fact, one of our reviewers noticed that her acne scars had lightened too. Those who had sensitive skin did not experience any irritation from the cleanser too.

I liked that the Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Foaming Cleanser was able to foam up well even when I used just a little bit of product. When I used it for the first time, my skin felt really clean but didn’t feel like it was stripped of moisture. In fact, my skin felt softer and more supple, so I wanted to continue using the product after I used it for the first time.

After two weeks, my skin texture is smoother and more refined. My skin’s barrier feels stronger too, and my complexion looks brighter and more radiant. Surprisingly, it helps my pimple scars heal faster as well, and my blemishes have reduced.

This product has worked better for me than other cleansers that I have used previously, and it’s the best cleanser I’ve tried. I have even received compliments from family and friends on my skin after using the Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Foaming Cleanser.

I’m really happy to have discovered this cleanser – it’s affordable and works really well for my skin. Plus, it delivers what it promises and improved my skin condition in a really short time.

The packaging of the Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Foaming Cleanser is nice and aesthetic. The scent was lovely but not overpowering. It feels silky smooth when squeezed out of the bottle and it was able to foam up fast. It left my face feeling smooth and refreshed after cleansing.

After two weeks, my skin felt smoother, but my skin was starting to break out as my monthly cycle approached. However, my skin did feel softer and softer. It looked brighter and more radiant too.

Although it leaves my skin smoother than the previous cleansers I tried, this one may not be suitable for me. When paired with a hydrating toner, however, my skin condition seemed to be improved. On its own, it makes my skin a bit dry at times.

I like how clean the Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Foaming Cleanser looks on the surface. Surprisingly, it has a pleasant floral smell. The scent is not too overpowering but it’s there. I only needed a little bit of product to make it foam – it’s very satisfying.

After cleansing with it for the first time, my skin felt soft and thoroughly clean. My skin felt nice and supple, and it didn’t feel greasy. I loved the texture of my skin after the first wash.

After two weeks, my skin texture felt smoother and more refined. It didn’t feel greasy throughout the day too. The Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Foaming Cleanser has worked very well for my skin type, and it’s even better than other cleansers I’ve tried in the past. It produces a denser foam, which allows for a deeper cleanse.

It’s easy to use and very worthwhile! Considering the amount of product used each time, the tube can last for a couple of months at least. I would definitely purchase this cleanser again! This is the first Neutrogena facial wash I’ve tried and it doesn’t disappoint!

The Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Foaming Cleanser gently cleansed my skin, leaving it clean, smooth, and moisturised. My skin felt refreshed but not dry or tight. Instead, it felt balanced. This cleanser has a denser foam too, which cleansed better compared to other facial washes.

After two weeks, my complexion looked better and felt even smoother. I also saw a reduction in congestion and blemishes. It has worked incredibly well for my skin type. It has worked better for me than other cleansers I used previously. This is easily the best cleanser I’ve tried. What’s more, my friends and family complimented my skin too.

It has been a wonderful experience with the Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Foaming Cleanser. I’m so glad it has helped my skin!

I liked how clean and minimalist the packaging is. It also has a matte finish which I appreciate – it helps me keep a better grip on the product. The scent was slightly nostalgic too, as my parents and siblings had used their own facial Neutrogena products in the past.

The cleanser dispenses easily and foams up really well – the foam was luxurious! My skin felt and looked thoroughly cleansed. Plus, I could use this around the eyes. My skin didn’t feel tight or stripped of moisture after too.

After two weeks, my skin looked healthier than before. The skin on my forehead felt especially smooth and more balanced too. I realised that it’s slightly more radiant than before! I even saw a reduction in congestion and blemishes.

Love the minimalistic packaging with a very clean and fresh outlook. The Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Foaming Cleanser has a pretty pleasant scent that’s not too strong or overpowering. Its creamy texture lathers up quite quickly and easily too, and it left my face feeling clean and hydrated. My skin doesn’t feel tight or dry at all.

After the first cleanse, my skin felt smoother, more supple, and more balanced – and it lasted throughout the day without too much sebum secretion. It does not strip moisture from my face after washing.

Two weeks later, my skin felt softer and more refined in texture. My skin’s barrier seemed stronger, and my complexion looked brighter and more radiant too. I even saw a reduction in congestion and blemishes.

In order to test how hydrating it actually is, I chose not to follow up with a moisturiser after cleansing. To my surprise, my skin did not feel dried out or overly greasy! At the end of the day, it still felt quite supple. My skin feels healthier and it has improved the overall texture of my complexion.

The Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Foaming Cleanser has a pleasant scent and it foams up easily. Its silky texture feels good on the skin, and it has a minimalist packaging. My skin felt clean and soft from the first use.

The mild cleanser didn’t leave a residue on my skin. Plus, it has a denser foam, which cleanses better compared to other facial cleansers. It’s a fuss-free product to use, even when I’m in a rush.

After two weeks, my skin felt softer and more balanced without feeling greasy. My skin doesn’t feel dry throughout the day too.

When I used the Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Foaming Cleanser for the first time, the creamy, lightweight formula cleaned my skin effectively without leaving a residue on my skin. My skin was less oily and moisturised, so it didn’t feel too dry.

After two weeks, my skin looked better than before. Plus, the bumps on my forehead are less noticeable. My skin felt softer and more supple, and my skin texture was smoother and more refined after using this cleanser. What’s more, my skin looked brighter and more radiant, and I saw a reduction in congestion and blemishes.

This is the best cleanser I’ve tried. My skin doesn’t feel dry or greasy throughout the day. I’ll be sticking with this one for a while – it makes my skin feel nice and look even better.

Some cleansers leave my face feeling dry, but not the Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Foaming Cleanser. It has a nice gel-like texture that left my skin feeling clean without stripping it of moisture.

My skin felt refreshed after cleansing and it didn’t feel dry or tight. My skin texture felt softer, smoother, and more refined after using the cleanser too. In fact, my skin felt hydrated post-cleanse.

After two weeks, my skin felt balanced but not greasy, and it didn’t feel dry or oily throughout the day too. It has worked very well for my skin type, and it’s even better than other cleansers I’ve used previously. I had a great experience using it!

The Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Foaming Cleanser foamed up pretty fast and it doesn’t have a strong scent, which is good for my sensitive skin. I also liked that I didn’t need much for it to produce a fluffy foam. The best part is that it didn’t leave my skin feeling tight afterwards.

My skin looked clearer and slightly brighter right after using it. My skin also didn’t feel as dry and tight. With just one wash, my skin felt cleaner and looked less clogged. My skin also didn’t feel oily as easily as it did before, especially in the middle of the day. There was less texture around the sides of my nose, just below the eyes.

After two weeks, my skin felt much smoother and more refined. My skin’s barrier is stronger now too, and my complexion appears brighter and more radiant. I also saw fewer blemishes and less congestion.

I would use the Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Foaming Cleanser again and recommend it to those who are looking for affordable and effective cleansers that are easily and readily available!
