Neutrogena Acne Stress Control Power-Clear Scrub

By Beauteandtheblog
I've been on a quest to find a decent scrub for some time now, and so far Neutrogena, surprisingly (for me anyways), has been performing well.
Want all the details? Let's take a look!

In my opinion, a scrub/exfoliator is an absolute staple in every skincare routine. I feel like regular gel and cream cleansers just can't get deep enough and really get into the pores.
With that said, I hold my scrubs at a very high standard. Now, normally I'm not a huge fan of Neutrogena--I tried a cleanser from them in the past and it was absolutely awful. It dried out my skin horribly and my skin was mourning for weeks. But I decided to give this little guy a try after hearing some pleasant reviews from friends and youtube.
So what does it claim?
Clears oil instantly, fights breakouts and gently exfoliates without over-drying. So advanced, it treats acne even before it emerges. 
  •       MicroClear, a powerful technology, is clincially proven to boost delivery of acne medicine to unclog congested pores and speed treatment deep to the source.
  •       Creamy formula with skin-soothers, including green tea and cucumber, softens skin while microbeads exfoliate.

It has 2% Salicylic Acid, which is good for the treatment of acne. For reference, I have oily acne-prone skin. 
When I put this on, it's very smooth and it feels really nice. The exfoliator beads aren't too rough, but I feel like they actually do provide a more deep clean.

It does contain menthol, so after you wash it off, your face has a cooling sensation. Personally, I'm not a fan of menthol in cleansers. It really has no real benefit for your skin--it simply makes you feeel like your skin has been cleansed. My grumble is simple: if it's not helping my skin, then why is it in there? It's like tricking you to believe your face is much cleaner. So I could do without the menthol, but it's not too strong, so I can't complain too much.
After washing, my face feels clean and refreshed. If I don't moisturize soon after though, my face can start to feel slightly dry.As for the smell, I find it quite pleasant--it smells something along the lines of cucumber, very fresh.
And now for the big question--does it cure acne? I'm inclined to say it helps, but it could really be a combination of things. I used to have horrible, terrible acne in middle school, and thankfully, my skin has cleared up considerably since then. I still get acne and pimples and zits, but nowhere near as bad as back then. With that said, after I started including this in my skincare routine, I sortof revamped my skincare routine completely as well. So has my skin improved since using this? I would say so, but could it also be the fact that I've added other things to my skincare routine also? Maybe.
Just keep in mind that different things work for different people--I know when I was in middle school, I quite possibly may have bought out the entire acne treatment section of Target trying to find something that worked for me. But I would say this is a good one to try, especially since it's so readily available and so inexpensive.
So who would I recommend this for?- Oily, acne-prone skin- Someone looking for a pretty gentle cleansing scrub
You can buy Neutrogena Acne Stress Control Power-Clear Scrub at any drugstore, Target, Walmart, etc. for about $7-$8.
Give it a try, and let me know how it works for you!I like it so much, I'll give it the Belle Stamp of Approval.
