Body Clear by Neutrogena Review | Body Scrub Clears Acne & Smooths Skin

Saturday, October 23rd, 2010

Neutrogena Body Clear Body ScrubIt's great to have a body scrub that also helps to reduce acne breakouts, I hate it when summer comes and you don't feel comfortable wearing that strappy top because of a breakout on the back.

Neutrogena Body Clear Body Scrub is formulated with salicylic acid is a proven ingredient to help clear acne and reduce further breakouts.

The scrub also contains micro-beads to get rid of dead skin cells that can clog pores therefor leaving the skin smoother and clearer.

This body scrub is gentle as it only contains 2% salicylic acid and Neutrogena also promises that the lather will rinse off easily without leaving any pore clogging residue behind. It is designed for daily use in the shower or bath.

Users Conclusions

I summarized the lists below from the patrons opinions on


  • Improves skins texture
  • Non greasy
  • Feels clean
  • Gentle
  • Pleasant fragrance
  • Easy to use
  • Effective


  • Dries skin (a couple of users found)
  • Didn't clear up acne ( a few users found)
  • Not well packaged


Salicylic Acid (2%) (Acne Treatment)Water, Sodium C14 16 Olefin Sulfonate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Disodium Cocamphodiacetate, Polyethylene, Glycerin, Acrylates/Aminoacrylates/C10 30 Alkyl PEG 20 Itaconate Copolymer, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Linoleamidopropyl PG Dimonium Chloride Phosphate, Matricaria Flower Extract (Chamomilla Recutita), Citric Acid, Propylene Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Yellow 6, Red 40, Blue 1 Lake (CI 42090), Red 33, Yellow 5, Fragrance.

To Sum Up

All in all a reasonable product from Neutrogena with most of the users singing its praises. They said it helped clear acne as well as smooth their skin.

However, there area couple of patrons that found the formula didn't work at all for their acne breakouts and in some cases it just dried and irritated it.

At $23.97 for 3 8.5oz bottles it is quite reasonably priced and won't break the bank if you want to give it a try.

Ocean Salt Cleanser By Lush Review | Natural Moisturizing Gentle Face & Body Scrub

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

Ocean Salt Cleanser by LUSHI personally love Lush products because all the ingredients are natural and it smells so good. Whenever I walk in to one of the stores I feel like a kid walking into a sweet shop.

Ocean Salt Cleanser By Lush is an all over body scrub containing ocean salt designed to scrub away dirt and dead cells, leaving skin softer and brighter. It should have a lovely violet and lime scent.

Coconut and avocado butter help soften the skin, while lime and grapefruit juices revitalize. Containing acidic fruit juices can sometimes be irritating to people with sensitive skin.

However, while all these ingredients are beneficial when exfoliating, they can be quite drying to the skin. So just to sure to moisturize after.

Users Conclusions


  • Makes skin as smooth as glass
  • Reduces blemishes (some users found)
  • Spreads well
  • Heavenly scent
  • Worth the price

To Sum Up

Lush's body scrub has proved to be very popular among users, none of them had a bad word to say about it. They liked how it left their skin feeling so smooth and even though it is quite pricey at $18.55- $32.95, although, all the reviewers I found said it was worth the price.

Laura Mercier Face Polish Review | Cream Based Gommage Facial Exfoliator

Saturday, August 28th, 2010

Laura Mercier GommageLaura Mercier Face Polish Gommage Facial is a cream based scrub that should be gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin. The facial scrub is designed to leave the skin feeling smooth and toned.

The Gommage is a cleanser and exfoliant in one and is suitable for all skin types.

I have very sensitive skin that gets irritated easily by most scrubs. I find that the Gommages are so much more gentle and effective for me. As it is cream based it isn't as harsh on my skin.

You could use this everyday if needed, but I'd suggest just using it twice a week.

Users Conclusions

This face polish has very good reviews, I can't find a bad word said about it. Ladies from say it is gentle, smells great, leaves skin soft, doesn't dry out skin and leaves a healthy glow. What more could you ask for?

A gommage does exfoliate but it not scratchy or grainy like most others.

You apply the cream all over the face and then wait for a couple of minutes and it should feel tacky. Then using your middle finger rub back and forward over your face. It will rub off the gommage along with any dead skin.

To Sum Up

Basically everyone who has used this so far has found it works really well for exfoliating and smoothing skin.

If you want to give the Gommage a try it retails for $30. Which is expensive but according to the ladies using it, it actually works and lasts a long time.
