New Pink Grapefruit from Neutrogena
The makers of Neutrogena® introduce the NEW Neutrogena Visibly Clear® Pink Grapefruit Cream Wash.
The creamy textured wash from Neutrogena cleanses deep into the pores to help eliminate spots and blackheads. Great news for anyone who has found the summer heat wreaked havoc with their skin, drying it out and upsetting its natural oil balance… the last thing you need if you’re heading back-to-college or looking forward to Debs season!
Skin isn’t always easy to manage, and different skin types need a tailored solution, Dr. Sue Mayou, Consultant Dermatologist and skincare advisor to the Neutrogena® brand, has some tips on how to cleanse your skin according to your skin type and specific problem.
1. The problem: My skin is sometimes very spotty and dry. I don’t want my skin to dry out even more by using a harsh spot skin clearing treatment but I need to eliminate my break outs!
Dr. Sue Mayou says: “Look for a product which contains salicylic acid but that is also gentle. The salicylic acid will help to exfoliate the skin and unblock the pores. Make sure you use a product that is suitable for sensitive skin and tailor your approach to specific problem areas”
Sue’s top skin tip: “Wash twice daily with a gentle cleanser containing salicylic acid and look for hydrating properties too”
Our Solution: NEW Neutrogena Visibly Clear® Pink Grapefruit Cream Wash
The Neutrogena Visibly Clear ® Pink Grapefruit Cream Wash 150ml (€5.49 RRP) is the newest addition to the Pink Grapefruit range and the creamy formula is gentle enough for everyday use on all skin types. The Cream Wash includes spot-fighting MicroClear™ Technology which offers a fast and effective solution for clearer skin. The powerful sebum-dissolving agents break through the oil on the surface of your skin allowing the spot-fighting ingredient salicylic acid to penetrate deep down into pores to help clear spots and prevent future break outs. The creamy textured wash purifies skin without over drying whilst a wave of pink grapefruit uplifts the senses, giving a much needed pick-me-up, helping you to look your best and smell fruity fresh!
And Vanessa Hudgens, Neutrogena® brand ambassador, is a massive fan of the new product, saying: “One of my must have’s for 2011 is the Visibly Clear® Pink Grapefruit Cream Wash. It’s so great, it smells amazing and it’s my favourite colour- pink! It’s really great because I have quite sensitive skin but this is really gentle and leaves my skin moisturised”
2. The problem: I get an oily T-zone but I can’t find an everyday product that isn’t too harsh
Dr. Sue Mayou says: “The T-zone is usually the oiliest part of the face due to the higher concentration of sebaceous glands located here. Use gentle products with an active drying ingredient for oily areas and wash your face twice a day, especially important in the evening to remove makeup and dirt”
Our solution: The Neutrogena Visibly Clear® Pink Grapefruit Facial Wash 200ml (€5.49 RRP) is an uplifting daily facial cleanser which works to give you clearer, fresher and healthier skin. The refreshing gel cleanses deeply without drying out your skin, the MicroClear™ Technology will target blocked pores in your problem area, whilst the sweet grapefruit scent stimulates your senses to kick-start your day!
Dr. Sue Mayou says: “When skin is looking dull, it is a good idea to start using a scrub regularly. A gentle scrub can be used on a daily basis and has the effect of a gentle exfoliation. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells improving light reflection off the skin’s surface improving radiance. Sweating can contribute to blocking the pores and spot formation, so using a scrub which contains salicylic acid will also help. A scrub also removes dead cells which may be clogging pore openings and contributing to the formation of spots.”
Our Solution: The Neutrogena Visibly Clear® Pink Grapefruit Facial Scrub 150ml (€5.49 RRP) is an uplifting daily facial scrub for clearer, fresher and healthier looking skin. The exfoliating micro-beads help to unclog pores whilst the MicroClear™ Technology and salicylic acid work together to help eliminate spots and blackheads. The refreshing and gentle scrub purifies the skin without over-drying, while a wave of pink grapefruit uplifts the senses with a burst of invigorating freshness!
