The worst product I have ever bought.
This is the worst product I have ever bought from priceline. Just in 2 washes my whole face became so dry, flacky, red and the area around my mouth was really dry and painful. This product should ideally be banned in Australia. My skin is looking pathetic and full face is hurting. Please do not buy this product at all as I don’t want anyone to go through this pain.
How can this product be legal?
I got this product from Chemist Warehouse because I trust Neutrogena brand. After 2-3 washes I started getting irritation on my face. When I woke up next morning I got painful rashes on my face. Skin is swollen and it turned so dry that it is continuously wearing out. Vaseline or Aloevera gel would make no difference to dryness and it’s still painful after 2 days. Looks like I have to visit doctor. I am regretting to not read reviews before buying this product. This product should be banned.
This wash was okay at first, but by the next morning after using it the night before my lips were so painful and red. The corners of my mouth have scabs and are also very irritated and painful. It basically feels like intense dry lips that wont go away no matter what. I've used lip balm so many times while using this product and the painful red lips wont heal. Luckily the rest of my face hasn't experienced any redness/ other issues like the other reviewers here, but I cannot deal with the pain on my lips. It's a real shame because my mom was already starting to notice my skin clearing after just 2 days of using it.
Purchased in July 2020 at Safeway for A$10.00.
Was Fine At First
I purchased a bottle of this after seeing it mentioned in an article being recommended by dermatologists as a "reliable go to" product as I was looking for a new cleanser, I assumed (don't ask me why maybe it was just brand recognition) that Neutrogena was a brand to trust and for the for price I thought why not. I used this every second night for about 2 weeks (as part of my usual routine TONER-CLEANSER-SERUM-MOISTURISER) and it was doing a good job my skin felt fresh and clean after applying it. Problems started this week (3rd week) nothing ...as severe as some people here have experienced but I now have really bad dry patches where the skin is now flaking and some redness which appeared basically overnight. I haven't changed or added any other new products to my routine so based on that and all the similar reviews here I can only point the finger at this product. I have stopped using it of course and hopefully my skin can bounce back.
Bought this to try and help my face and ended up way way worse. The first day I used it I was fine, the second day I woke up the next morning with swollen eyes, red patchy bumpy skin around my mouth, nose and chin. I don’t know how to fix it! It feels horrible!
Never again! Do not buy
Worse product I have ever come across one usage and I’ve woke up with my face on fire the itching feeling is so intense I wish I had read reviews now before buying face is swollen red and bumpy and the pain is unbelievable
Never thought this would happen to me!
I can’t believe I have also reacted to badly to this product. I have been using all different types of makeup for over 20 years and I have NEVER had a reaction like this.
My cheeks first puffed up all red with tiny bumps all over them which then spear to my entire neck. My neck and chin were so itchy with red patches all over them. I ended up seeing a doctor who couldn’t work out what was going on. I was going to ask for a referral to a specialist but 2 days after not using this product anymore I have completely cleared up.
I am completely shocked by this product and all the other reviews.
Awful - itchy, bumps and dry flakey skin
Like almost all of the reviews below I’ve experienced a very similar reaction. My skin is oily/combination and not normally sensitive. After just two washes of this crap my skin is bumpy, itchy, irritated and sore. Just awful.
Terrible ! This product should be banned
face burns and itch, my eyes are swollen after 2 washes ! Nothing seems working to reverse the reaction on my skin ! Do not you ever buy it, something definitely wrong
Never ever again!!!
Eyes are swollen, and it feels like a layer of skin has been ripped from my face.It’s constantly burning. I’m on day three after using,it appears to be getting worst! Never ever ever will use this again! Straight to the bin.

BURNED AND SEVERELY DRIED OUT MY FACE! DO NOT BUY
After 4-5 uses of this product I developed a rash on my face, terrible breakouts and my face was so so dried out that it was peeling and flaking off. My face was BURNING, ITCHING and STINGING for 3 days straight and I had to go and get prescribed eczema moisturiser. DO NOT EVER BUY. I wouldn't recommend this to my worst enemy.
DO NOT BUY
Burns my face after 2 uses. Icthy red swollen face. This is the first time a product reacts like this on my skin, and i use many drugstore products. The cream cleanser one doesn’t cause the same reaction. DO NOT BUY
Terrible!!!! Do not use this product ever!!!!
This facewash is the worst facewash I have ever used. It has made my skin feel dry and burnt.
I have used it 2-3 times and my face is red, itchy and has little red bumps everywhere!!
DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT. I cannot believe this product is being sold.
Should be illegal!!! God knows what is in this product if it can do this much damage with 2-3 washes. Terrible terrible terrible. Cannot rate anything worse than this face wash.
This should be banned!!!
Horrible product. After first use the next my fave broke out a burning red rash along with itchiness and flaky skin. I then started getting pus spots. It was horrible. Worse feeling ever. Had to go to the doctors and go on antibiotics for this to go away. The people do not even care when u email them. So many bad reviews about this product I see now! It should be banned from selling.
has good claims, works fine
this cleanser is okay, didn't broke me out and it comes readily-available. One thing I noticed is that this gave dry patches on some parts of my skin. Acne is gone but my skin is noticeably dry. Therefore, a moisturizer is needed.

Caused a huge eczema reaction on my face.
After using this for two days my skin was inflamed, itchy, stingy and very dry.
Very painful and extremely irritated from this cleanser. I only switched this in my routine, so it can be the only cause of this.
Do not buy, terrible dangerous product.
Horrible, it should be banned from the stores!
It irritated my face straight after the first use. My face is full of blisters, itchy and irritated. I can’t believe this product is still sold after so many people had this severe side effects even after the first use.
Chemical burns and blisters after two uses!!!!
Do NOT use this product!! After just two uses my face looks and feels like the worst sunburn ever! It is so red and now beginning to blister so painful. This stuff should not be on the shelves so many ppl have had chemical burns from this stuff!

DON’T USE THIS
The day after using it I woke up with heaps of tiny bumps around my mouth and jawline. I didn’t connect it to this product, so used it again the next day. When I woke up the next morning my whole face had a rash!!!! My skin felt like it was burning!!!! And soooooo itchy!!!!! I then did some googling and came across this post. OMG!!!! Please DO NOT USE!!!!!!
Questions & Answers
Why would this product cause your lips to swell and appear burned and whst should we do? It started on Wed and still this way today. And nothing is helping
I thought I’d try this in hopes of clearing my face up. BIG MISTAKE. At first it made my skin feel pretty nice, but it just got progressively more and more itchy but I passed it off as my skin healing (you know how wounds itch when they heal) I realised that something was off when I used it last night and my bridge piercing swelled and went RED (it’s years old and has never done this) and low and behold I wake up this morning and my eyes are so puffy it looks like I’ve been punched in the face.
I don’t even have sensitive skin and no allergies that I’m aware of.
I’d probably be better of if I washed my face in acetone. Only use this is you want to completely waste your money or you’re a masochist or something.
