Neutrogena Pore & Shine Daily Wash and Scrub


If you read my blog from time to time, you might have come across a few posts about Neutrogena skincare already. Reason why is because from my experience, I notice a positive difference in my skin when using Neutrogena on the regular(especially when using the Blackhead Eliminating scrub and Pink Grapefruit daily wash & scrub) . Obviously I can’t always get my hands on Neutrogena skincare products, because it’s officially not available here in the Netherlands. With that said, to my surprise I stumbled upon the Pore & Shine Daily Wash at Action( a Dutch/European discount-store where they sell branded bulk products at a lower price) some weeks ago and stocked up a few bottles. I’m so glad I did, because a few days later, it was all gone and since then it never returned.


Neutrogena Pore and Shine

Neutrogena Pore & Shine is a product range within their Visibly Clear line created for those with a mixed/oily skin like myself. The Pore & Shine line comes with a tangerine & lime-infused Daily Wash( found here in the Netherlands) and Daily Scrub (bought during my recent trip to Paris) that has a double action: to tighten pores and reduce the shine.


Pore & Shine Daily Wash I like the double purpose of this daily wash, which is to  remove excess oil and unclog pores while providing a flawless skin. I’m not so sure about the flawless looking skin though, because that’s still something I aim for and have yet to accomplish. Plus, I’ve just started using this product so I can’t  really say whether this daily wash will be effective in the long run.  Nevertheless, I love the freshness of the tangerine and lime extract, and the way the daily wash helps to cleanse my skin. Obviously it’s not a magic potion that will stop the shine and give you a flawless looking skin forever, but it’s a great and refreshing daily cleanser that doesn’t over-dry the skin. I guess the longer you use it, the better the result. The daily wash is to be used twice a day.

Pore & Shine Daily Scrub I have to say that I really love this daily scrub. Apart from the refreshing smell, I have the feeling that the scrub really deep cleanses my skin, but I’m not so sure about the mattifying effect. Maybe I have to use it for at least 6 weeks straight in order to get a more visible result. According to Neutrogena, “the exfoliating micro-beads and salicylic acid help tighten the pores and cleanse deep down, while removing 77% of oil skin.” Obviously the scrub should be used together with the daily wash.

I wish the Neutrogena Pore & Shine range came with a daily moisturizer as well, so I can get a thorough experience, and probably even a better result in terms of shine reduction. Nevertheless, I still love these products and have added them to my current skincare regimen.

    1. I personally would recommend it, because my cheek areas are quite sensitive and prone to breakouts, but haven’t experience it so far when using daily scrubs. I actually like the micro-beads because it actually give me the feeling that I’m deep cleansing my skin. Obviously you shouldn’t go rub it onto your skin like it’s nothing. Just rub it gently, but try it out on one section first and see what happens. Hopefully you’ll like it too! xo Jey.
