    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: works wonders for my skin, reduced my pores, made my skin look smooth, healthy and beautiful
    Cons: may be too strong for some people to use daily, must be careful around the eyes and nose

    Summary: I love to save money, and being that my family is currently living on one stable income it's a good thing I like to be frugal. However, I've learned (the hard way) that there are some things you simply cannot scrimp on as it ends up costing you more in ... read more

    Pros: Really works; smooths skin texture
    Cons: BURNS eyes, even after rinsing; price

    Summary: I bought this when my local drugstore had it on sale for $2 off. I didn't actually believe it would reduce the size of my pores. There are so many products on the market that claim to do exciting things, but I think about 90% of them should be cited ... read more

    Pros: Works great, leaves skin clean, smooth and healthy
    Cons: I cant think of even ONE

    Summary: I am almost 36 with fair, clear skin. Most people guess me in my mid twenties I use serious SPF, never tug or pull and have moisturized/treated since early teens, so I guess I have pretty decent skin, but I do have some tell tale, fine lines cropping up ... read more

    Pros: Effectiveness, Price, Look
    Cons: Slight chemical smell

    Summary: Typically I am not very “loyal” to beauty products, but Neutrogena Pore Refining Cleanser has been my facial cleanser of choice for 6+ years now. It took me a little while to get sold on it, but after I gave it a few weeks I have never strayed far. I ... read more

  • Do You Want Your Skin Scrubbed or Clean?

    Pros: Great Body Scrub
    Cons: Harsh, sandy feel. Too harsh for facial skin

    Pros: Non-messy tube. Good for travelling. Leaves skin fresh and not too dry.

    Pros: Granules did not 'scratch' skin; skin feels clean and smooth (rinse well)
    Cons: when the package says ' don't get in eyes', they mean it (ouch!)

    Summary: Being that I have 'horrible' skin - I am always willing to try something that claims to improve the texture, size of pores, etc. This has worked for me - somewhat. I use it morning and nite, but not every day. Or at least not twice every day. The ... read more
