EDIT: The original freebie is no longer available, but this freebie review is still a fun read 🙂
Hello all my wonderfully fabulous Freebie Friends! I hope the end of your October is going great! Since we are getting on to Halloween in a mere five days, I thought I would spare you another sugary product review. Now we know that too much chocolate or sugar is supposed to cause breakouts. Some people claim it doesn’t, but honestly, I’m gonna eat my chocolate either way. But if you care about your face, which I am hoping you do, you could try thiscleanser. It’s an oil-free acne wash for your face and it’s a great freebie!
This freebie was up around August 20th, 2008 and mine came almost a month later in a little trial version 0.5 oz. So if you don’t like it, you’re not really losing that much. I love grapefruit to begin with though, so this is perfect. The thing I like about this is that when you go to smell it you don’t get the over powering smell of a cleaner. You get the smell of fruit, which is nice, especially if you’ve used some nasty smelling things in the past. So let’s give this a shot.
Early this morning, I tested this out. I set up my little recorder so I can tell you what is going on. First of all the directions say to wet face. Check. Next apply to hands and add water, work into lather. The cleanser itself is pinkish clear with little white scrubbies in it. It’s gel like, feels gritty but that is only the scubbies. I used about a dime size dollop of the gel. When rubbing it into my hands and applying it to my face, the grapefruit smell clearly starts intensifying. It smells amazing, just like I sliced open an actual grapefruit.
After my face is completely lathered up I move on to the next and final step, rinse thoroughly. Warm water is a go. Blot your face dry. Looking in the mirror I would have to say that it is a very refreshing scrub. My skin feels amazingly clean. There doesn’t feel like there is anything clogging up my pores like some scrubs make you feel. My skin doesn’t feel tight either, which is a very good thing. My skin feels totally soft, very very nice. Sitting here writing this 8 hours later, my face feels totally refreshed and soft.
I would definitely recommend this to a friend. My hands also have a feel of “oh my,” so your getting your face and hands for one! This freebie didn’t come with a coupon, which I know…I was cursing them. But just look for them in the Sunday coupons, we’re certain to get one sometime. I priced this at Wal-Mart and it was 6.99 for a 4.2 oz bottle. Now the free sample isn’t up anymore, but over on the Neutrogena site there are offers for 5$ off this and that so go have a look.
