Neutragena Deep Clean Micellar Gel to Foam – REVIEW

I decided to pick this up when it was on sale at Priceline a while ago. After seeing it all over the beauty blogs and Instagram so obviously I had severe FOMO and was keen to see what it was like. I love micellar water so was really intrigued to give a micellar cleanser a try as I’ve never come across one    

I won’t lie, I wasn’t really expecting much from this, I don’t know why, I just set my expectations quite low…and boy was I wrong!! I can admit when I am wrong, I mean it isn’t all that often, as my better half will tell you, but in this case there is no doubt I was blown away.

Neutragena describes the product as follows

A 2 in 1 cleanser with Micellar Technology in a dual transformation gel to foam that is gentle to use every day.

1. Micellar gel transforms into fine, creamy foam by rubbing with fingers and acts as a magnet to capture impurities, make-up and sebum

2. Deep Cleanser: when activated with water, the creamy foam transforms into light bubbles to blast away the residues and leave skin clean, fresh and healthy looking.

I have to say the brand’s description is spot on in my opinion and I absolutely love the concept of this product.

In this day and age where life can get expensive, it’s great to not have to spend your hard earned cash on a thousand different products. One product that does two things you say?!?! Givee it to meeee!!

The consistency of this is very gel like (not at all like your traditional micellar waters) and when rubbed between wet hands and onto your face, it foams up really well. I then use makeup pads to remove. Overall the removal power of this is fantastic, as it removes all makeup, eye makeup and most importantly concealer from those finer lines under my eyes so damn well. I was really impressed with how fresh and moisturised my face felt and the deep clean that was provided. The product also has a pleasant scent that is not at all overpowering or strong, but subtle and fresh. Additionally, the cucumber extract helps hydrate your skin, leaving it soft and healthy looking.

Neutragena’s packaging also gets a big thumps up from me as it’s vibrant and in a tall, sleek bottle. The bottle has a wonderful and effective pump dispenser which ensures no wastage. If I don’t have time for my full skincare regime of a night-time, I definitely turn to this.

This guy really does cover all bases, as it cleanses whilst removing makeup, dirt and impurities from your face.

Let me know if you have tried this in the comments.

Thanks so much for reading beauties.

Lots of love.

    Is this sort of like those cleansing oils that you rub on your dry face and then add water to create a lather to remove makeup? That is my favourite way to remove my makeup so if it is similar to that I am definitely keen to try! Great post lovely xx

      Yesss similar texture, but I think it lathers up a wee bit more than your traditional cleaning oil. But yess very similar indeed. I’m really liking it as a makeup remover, really does a fab job 😘😘😘 thanks for reading lovely xxxx
