Review: Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Pore Scrub

Thursday, 5 September 2013


I'm always looking for more natural based skincare products in the drugstore so I was quite excited when Neutrogena released its new Naturals line. This line is fantastic because it doesn't contain any harsh chemicals, parabens, sulphates, petrochemicals, dyes, or phthalates. None of them have been tested on animals, either. The Purifying Pore Scrub contains 94% naturally derived ingredients and is package in post consumer recycled plastic.

The range is also pretty extensive, including a Fresh Cleansing + Makeup Remover, Purifying Pore Scrub, Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Moisturiser, Lip Balm, and Face and Body Bar.

I've reviewed the Fresh Cleansing + Makeup Remover here if you're interested in reading more about that product.

Now, because the facial cleanser didn't have any sort of exfoliation, I decided to also pick up the Purifying Pore Scrub to use in conjunction with the cleanser.

So far, I'm not overly impressed by this product but it's not horrible. The consistency is quite thin and runny with a lot of very fine beads for exfoliating. The beads are so fine that this product is safe for everyday use but I prefer to use it about twice a week to keep my skin nice and smooth. 

While in use the product doesn't foam up at all but remains more of a thin gel consistency. It also has a strong green apple scent like the Fresh Cleansing + Makeup Remover. I like the scent because it's quite refreshing and doesn't linger on the skin but be wary if you're sensitive to fragrance.

This is definitely a gentle product and you shouldn't expect any heavy duty exfoliating but if you want something for everyday use then this might be your kind of exfoliator. It's also great if you're usually sensitive to or try to avoid the harsh chemicals used in most drugstore skincare products. So far, I'm really glad Neutrogena has provided us with a more natural option!
