Hello my lovelies and happy Monday ♡.
I honestly hope that it’s not as cold where you are like it is here in Cape Town. Winter just isn’t playing around! For those of you who didn’t know, I turned 21 on the 8th of August and it has been an insane roller coaster in terms of celebrations which I am truly grateful for. Thank you to everyone who wished me on Twitter and Instagram, I truly appreciate it more than words could ever express.
In today’s post I wanted to review the Neutrogena Visibly Clear Spot Proofing Range. I have used Neutrogena since I was about 15 years old so I know the brand very well, however I haven’t really found anything that wowed me. This range as a whole I feel I was happy with in terms of results. I do want to stress that what works for me might not work for you and vice versa. If a product has a negative review it is not me bashing the brand but rather just offering my honest opinion. If you’ve tried this range, I would love to know your thoughts in the comments.
The Neutrogena Spot Proofing range combines gentle Neutrogena cleansing innovation with a powerful spot-fighting ingredient, Salicylic acid, to deliver the ultimate complexion perfecting regimen: products that help clear breakouts, plus preserve skin’s natural barrier so it can become more spot proof. Each product in the range is oil-free, non-comedogenic and has a fresh scent.
WHERE TO PURCHASE: Available in selected Dischem, Clicks, Foschini, Pick n Pay and selected pharmacies nationwide.
HOW MUCH IS IT: Each product in the range retails at for R109,95 each.
Neutrogena Visibly Clear Spot Proofing Daily Wash:
A gel formula that lathers up to wash away impurities and fight spots while preserving the skin’s natural defenses.
I loved the gel formula as I feel it was not harsh on my skin and I didn’t mind the fresh citrus burst. I felt that it did the job of a daily wash, but did not exfoliate very well which is where the toner came into play for me. I loved the wash as a whole but I feel that it did not do anything that any other gel wash would do.
Neutrogena Visibly Clear Spot Proofing Smoothing Scrub:
Packed with naturally-derived exfoliants, this scrub helps enhance the natural skin renewal process at the surface while fighting spots deep down in the pores.
This product is definitely one I was very hesitant to use just because my skin is really sensitive and the texture felt very grainy which made me a bit skeptical. I’ve mentioned in my video review that this was definitely the product I’ve used the least and do not have a lot to say about.
Neutrogena Visibly Clear Spot Proofing Purifying Toner:
Used after cleansing, this no-rinse, alcohol-free formula leaves skin clean and refreshed without over-drying the skin.
I love toners, but this one was definitely a big hit in my books just because there was no alcohol in it so it did not leave my skin feeling dry or tight and it got rid of all the dirt that the daily wash might have missed. Really recommend this toner and would definitely repurchase it.
Neutrogena Visibly Clear Spot Proofing Oil Free Moisturizer:
A lightweight, oil-free moisturizer that provides all day hydration and makes skin soft without clogging pores.
Although the name claims that it’s oil free I did notice that my face felt a bit greasy after using this product, only when I used too much. I felt that a pea-sized amount went a really long way and it lasted longer that way. The only thing I dislike about this item in particular was the price. I felt that it was quite expensive for such a small bottle and there’s not really a lot of product in the bottle itself.
Neutrogena Visibly Clear Spot Proofing 2-in-1 Wash Mask:
Mask can be used as a foamy daily cleanser, or smoothed over skin in a thin layer and left on for five minutes before rinsing as a weekly treatment.
Definitely my least favourite product in the range just because this product had a menthol scent to it and by the time I applied it all over my face as a mask I just felt that the smell was way too strong for me and my eyes were tearing by the time I had finished. Had this product not been scented I’m sure it would have been a hit because when I washed all the product off my face it felt so soft and smooth.
Here are my before and after photos using the range as a whole and the results speak for themselves even though I was more consistent at night when using the range.
Please feel free to let me know your thoughts if you’ve tried it. I am always looking for new skincare products to try so if you have any recommendations please send them my way!
I hope your week is as beautiful as you are ♡ xo.
