Neutrogena Visibly Clear Correct and Perfect Complexion Scrub

RRP: £5.99/150ml

--What does the promo say?--
"Neutrogena Visibly Clear® Correct & Perfect Complexion Scrub contains a combination of salicylic acid and gentle exfoliating microbeads to help:
 Clear skin without over-drying it.
 Remove dead skin cells and hidden impurities that can lead to new breakouts
 Even skin complexion by stimulating the skin’s natural renewal process."

The bright orange and purple colour scheme is both unusual and unisex, while the robust flip-top lid is both easy to use and secure.

Rub onto damp skin before wiping off with a face cloth.

A white, grainy paste that washes off the skin easily, leaving no visible residue.

Nothing in particular stands out - just a clean, perhaps slightly medicinal smell.

--Texture and consistency--
Satisfyingly scrubby - you feel like the microbeads are working well to even out skin, while not feeling as though you've been attacked with sandpaper. In short, it's effective, not abrasive. 

--Effects on the skin--
Dry patches and spots are both reduced - great for those of us with combination skin.

--Value for money--
At £5.99 this will hardly break the bank, particularly if you also manage to catch the product on special offer, so you've nothing to lose by giving it a try. My only disappointment would perhaps be that given the now well-known environmental impact of microbeads, I would obviously prefer to now use products that contain natural exfoliants instead - something I should have considered more carefully when reading the press release before requesting my sample. Nonetheless, there's no denying the product's efficacy, which comes at an affordable price.
