I hate to admit it, but forty is just around the corner. As I age, I am finding my skin to be a little dull and becoming more sensitive than in my younger years. Because of my changing skin, I have been on a (what seems like never-ending) search for the perfect regimen to clean, hydrate and protect my face.
As a Neutrogena Ambassador, I was asked to take the Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser Challenge. Every day for two weeks, I abandoned by regular cleanser and used this product exclusively. I, like many people, don’t feel like there’s a cleanser that can possibly meet all my needs. Regular cleansers tend to be too irritating, while gentle cleansers can be ineffective and leave a filmy residue. But the Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser has advanced technology which delivers a superior clean with unsurpassed gentleness.
“It’s gentle enough that I can recommend it to patients with even the most sensitive skin, like those with eczema, acne, and rosacea.” ~Dr. Jaliman, Dermatologist
So, how does the Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser remove 99% of excess oil, dirt, and even makeup while leaving skin’s natural moisture and effectively preserving skin’s barrier? Here’s the geeky part (put on your lab goggles):
Many cleansers have surfactants that penetrate and irritate the skin’s surface. The patented cleansing technology in Ultra Gentle Cleanser attracts free-floating surfactants for a thorough clean without redness, dryness, or irritation. I love that it is also formulated with a hypoallergenic fragrance that is free of known skin allergens.
After hearing all of the science behind the cleanser, I could not wait to give it a try. After two weeks of testing, you can check out my results in the infographic below:
I absolutely loved the cleanser and have made it a permanent fixture in my bathtub. My daughter (who has eczema) has been using it, too, with great results. Over 14,000 people have taken the Ultra Gentle Challenge with 74% of the respondents saying that the Neutrogena Ultra Daily Cleanser cleans MORE than their regular brand. Take a look at the the Ultra Gentle Challenge website to see all of the results, feature reviews and dermatologist recommendations.
