REVIEW | Neutrogena Labs Clarifying Micellar Gel Cleanser

Neutrogena LABS has created a line of Micellar Gel Cleansers to address and balance reactive skin for both dry and oily skin. Developed together with dermatologists, the brand has formulated the products with Super Magnetic Acid to give your skin a gentle yet effective cleanse.

In fact, the makeup removers are clinically proven to remove up to 99% of micro-pollutants on the skin, while the gel cleansers are able to remove 97% of micro-pollutants.

I saw one of my favourite beauty blogger in Singapore actually did a vlog about this cleanser. Wow, I didn’t know that Neutrogena had this micellar cleanser in their brand. This cleanser is a pretty no-nonsense product. It actually does it all- takes off makeup and doubles up as cleanser. Theoretically, it’s a transparent gel which when rubbed on face dissolves makeup, dirt and grime and then as water is added, it turns into foam and all the residue is washed off.

How to use:

PUMP CLEANSER ONTO HAND AND GENTLY MASSAGES OVER WET SKIN. AFTER CREATING AN EVEN LATHER, RINSE WITH WATER THOROUGHLY. HERE’S TO REBALANCED, CLEAR SKIN- WITHOUT THE DRY AND TIGHT FEELING.

My Opinion:

This product is definitely travel friendly as it saves me from carrying a makeup remover. Although I don’t use makeup that often, but on and off I will apply eyeliner if I want to look good when taking photos. LOL. I basically rub this cleanser around my eyes during shower and it doesn’t itch my eye or irritate my skin. It dissolves most stubborn makeup in one go.

This cleanser is actually pretty potent so I do think it’ll work for my oily skin. It gives me a squeaky clean face after that. And one of their main ingredients is the Salicylic Acid. What is Salicylic Acid? Let me give you a very quick review, people who suffered with acne will definitely know what is this.

Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid. It’s well-known for reducing acne by exfoliating the skin and keeping pores clear. Salicylic acid works best for mild acne (blackheads and whiteheads). It can also help prevent future breakouts.

I love LOVE this cleanser as it is watery and runny texture, transparent in colour. Easy to dissolve with water and does not leave any residue on my skin surface. Highly recommended to purchase and repurchase!
