Neutrogena Skincare

Happy new month beautiful people 🙂

I have been plagued with acne for as long as I can remember. I’ve spent so much time in dermatologist offices, but no treatment seems to have a lasting effect. So when I spotted these in a shop at makola (one of the biggest markets in Ghana) I just had to try it. What’s the point of having a lot of makeup if the canvas isn’t very smooth?


(Yes that’s the Big Bang Theory playing in the background)

I know Neutrogena have been makers of skincare products for a long while but I have surprisingly never tried any. Now there were so many things to choose from but I decided on the Oil – Free Acne Wash and the Clean Pore Oil – Eliminating Astringent. Now for someone who has acne, large pores and oily skin, this is music to my ears. 


They both contain 2% salicylic acid which is the active ingredient. Now I don’t know if this is enough to really make a difference but it’s worth a shot.


The Astringent contains alcohol which bothers me a little, but it also contains witch hazel which is a big plus. At first glance it has a pretty strong scent and the top seems a bit loose cos it spilled a little in the carrier.

I haven’t tried them yet, since I just got them but I’ll post weekly progress updates every Friday so I let you guys know just how it’s going.

I got them for 25 cedis each. Sadly I didn’t check the name of the shop but I’ll be happy to show anyone where it is.

Have you tried these? Did it work for you? Share your thoughts with me
