The Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser Challenge Results and Giveaway Winners

Last week I posted that I was given the opportunity to participate in the Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser Challenge.  I went into this challenge looking for a drugstore facial cleanser that would parallel or surpass my current facial cleanser, Philosophy Purity.  As I mentioned previously, I had been using Purity for many years and used it as my gold standard when trying other cleansers. I have tried other products that promised to remove my make-up, leave my skin moisturized and hydrated, all the while being gentle to my skin.  They have all fallen short of my expectations and resulted in my returning to PurityNeutrogena is a brand well known for its many skin care products; and I will admit, I have tried some Neutrogena products that I liked and some I did not like. So I went into this challenge with no definite expectations.

Neutrogena Claims:

  • to remove 99 percent of excess oil, dirt and even makeup,
  • preserving the skin’s delicate moisture barrier,
  • easily rinses away, leaving behind no residue, for skin that always feels refreshed, never tight or dry,
  • perfect prep step for anti-aging and acne treatments,
  • Soap-Free, Dye-Free, Hypoallergenic, won't clog pores,
  • developed to cleanse sensitive skin,
  • no added soaps, dyes, sulphates, and parabens.
 My experience:

  • As with all my cleansers, I used the Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser with my Clarisonic.
  • First impression, the scent is clean and non-offensive.
  • I appreciated the clear formulation. I equate this with the non-existence of irritating dyes and other chemicals.
  • For a true comparison to my Purity, for my first use of the Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser, I used it with a full face a make-up. It matched the results I achieved with Puritythe only short-fall was that unlike the Purity, if the Neutrogena got into my eyes, it stung. But I can live with that by keeping my eyes closed.  
  • After rinsing my face, there was a little of the waterproof eye make-up left but not a lot. 
  • My skin felt clean, soft and hydrated. There were a couple of occasions that my skin felt so hydrated that while applying my make-up I actually forgot to apply my moisturizer.  None of that "skin too tight" feeling. 
  • So after a week of using Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser, my opinion is I very well may have found the product I was looking for. Remember, I was looking for a drugstore product to replace my higher priced department store cleanser. 
  • I will continue to use it for an extended usage review. 
  • Also, ounce for ounce, the Neutrogena is the better priced item. 
Now on to the giveaway...Neutrogena was gracious enough to provide for three individuals a full-sized bottle of Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser.  They will each receive a bottle so that they can do their own Challenge and take the Challenge Assessment.  Even if you didn't win, you can still participate in the Challenge.
