Skincare Wednesdays: Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control Power-Clear Scrub

Could this thing have a longer name???? I just know it as "that one green scrub from Neutrogena." So as you guys might know, I recently started a new skin care routine [See that post HERE] for acne prone skin, but I needed a new exfoliator to go along with that new routine. I have heard great things about this scrub so I ran [I lie! I didn't run at all. I biked there :) ]to my local Rite Aid and purchased this.

Price: This was $7.99~ Fair price.

I have been using this for about a week, and I have used it 3 times. I will be using this Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, so 3 times a week.

It is really gentle since it is a creme scrub. A creme scrub?? Sounds weird. But it is a green cream that has a light cucumber smell and it has small blue beads that gently exfoliate your skin. Of course, this is designed for acne prone skin so it has to be gentle and it also contains 2% salicylic acid.

I really enjoy the fact that this is a creme scrub because I have combo skin that has to be balanced. If I use anything that is too drying I break out, but if I use too many moisturizing products I also break out. [Story of my life...] My skin is just so demanding!! It is like one of those needy people who want everything, but then once they get it, they don't want it anymore.

How I use this:
I like using this in the shower. So at night, I use my cleanser to remove my makeup, pop into the shower, and apply this onto my face.
I spread it on my skin and I gently start to make circles on my face, starting from the center of my face and slowly moving towards the hair line. I do this for about 90 seconds and then I rinse it off.

Afterwards, my skin feels sooo smooth! And also, I get this really awesome tingly feeling~ You know that feeling you get when you chew mint gum or you eat a mint? That cool, refreshing feeling? That is how your skin feels after using this! I love it~

Any bad things? Hmm, well, let's see. I am a little apprehensive on how exfoliating this product is. I don't feel that the beads are doing much exfoliating, but I can't say too much about that just yet.
I guess people who have a problems with creme products will not life this too much. This doesn't lather at all either. I personally don't have a problem with that, but some people will!

I will update you guys in about 1 month :D
