What they say:
Oily skin with unsightly shine is a concern for many, especially those with darker skin as they are more prone to oiliness. Oil build-up on the skin often leads to blackheads, pimples, enlarged pores and blemishes – not to mention the shine!
Neutrogena Deep Clean Long-Last Shine Control is developed with a breakthrough patent-pending technology that contains rice protein. This acts as a micro sponge to help clear away 85% of built-up oil in the skin and continues to absorb excess oil for eight hours, leaving you fresh, breathable, shine-free skin.
What we say:
There’s something about a brand that finds great celebrity ambassadors to champion their products. I’m a sucker for celeb endorsements and last month it seemed I couldn’t change the TV channel without running into Gabrielle Union trying to break out of her cling wrap bubble. So when we were sent the Neutrogena Deep Clean range she’d been telling everyone with an aerial about I couldn’t resist…
Neutrogena Deep Clean Long-Last Shine Control Daily Scrub, R74.95
Neutrogena’s Deep Clean Daily Scrub is gentle enough to be used every day without irritating or harming your skin. After just one week, my skin felt super clean but not tight, oil-free and baby soft. Over the past month I’ve had less breakouts and my skin is looking much healthier and shine-free than before. I still see some shin build up, but that’s only after eight hours instead of the usual two when I was using other facial cleansers and scrubs.
Neutrogena Deep Clean Long-Last Shine Control Cleanser/Mask, R74.95
The Deep Clean Cleanser/Mask is a great weekly mask to keep your skin sine and oil free without drying it out. The rice protein absorbs the excess oil and simply not all the oil, as your skin does still need some oil. My skin has never felt softer or smoother in years.
Neutrogena’s Deep Clean Long-Last Shine Control range is available in leading stores and pharmacies.
