Review:Neutrogena Deep Clean Invigorating Dual Action Toner

I didn't want to do two review posts in a row but I let my cousin borrow my camera for the day and before I gave it to her I forgot to upload my fotd/lotd pics so that will have to wait until later today...

Wow that was like the longest title ever! lol. For the past month or so my skin hasn't been looking so great. I've been breaking out like crazy, it makes me feel like a teenager again. But not only am I breaking out I'm getting scars left from where the pimples once were, I'm not a picker so I have no idea why this is happening. I haven't gotten scars before so something is up. Anyways, my skin has gotten used to my old routine so I'm trying little by little to switch it up. So here's a review on one of the first products I've tried...

What it claims: Cleans deep in your pores and leaves your skin feeling energized, for a lasting refreshing feel. Naturally derived aloe and chamomile sooth skin to prevent over-drying.

This unique toner works in 2 ways:
1-Cleans deep: the tingly formula penetrates deep into pores to completely clean away dirt and oil.
2-Tightens pores: the tingly surge of invigoration gives you tighter feeling pores and seal in the sensation.

Water, Alcohol Denat., Trideceth 9, PEG 5 Ethylhexanoate, Polysorbate 20, Witch Hazel (Hamamelis Virginiana), Extract, Salicylic Acid, Sodium Lactate, Sodium PCA, Allantoin, Matricaria (Chamomila Recuita) Flower Extract, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Extract, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Benzotriazole Butylphenol Sulfonate, Menthyl Lactate, Menthol, Blue 1, Fragrance

Price: $4.99-$6.99

Where you can buy it: Walmart, Target, Kmart, CVS, Walgreens, Ulta and anywhere else Neutrogena is sold. (Doesn't it sound like a commercial when I put that? lol)

My Rating: 4.5 peace signs

The Good: Again, like other products I like this is tingly. I guess I just have a thing for products that tingle. lol. It makes my skin feel really clean after using it and totally refreshed. That "clean" feeling lasts a good couple minutes. It also really picks up things on your face you never knew was there. Before I used this I cleansed my face and exfoliated and when I looked at the cotton pad once I was done swiping my face there was still dirt left! I couldn't believe it, I use the Clinique toner and it picks up some dirt but this stuff picked up more. My face didn't dry out either like some toners seems to do to my skin and I didn't get that tight feeling once the toner had dried.

The Bad: It has a slightly strong alcohol smell to it and if you wipe a little close to your eyes they will definitely water. Other than that I see nothing else bad about this toner.

Overall: I'm really loving it right now, it gives my face a much cleaner feeling than my other toner did and for the price, that's great. I'm totally going to be adding this to my routine for a good while.

*Just MY opinion of this product*

hey girl! I have really sensative skin and I notice I get a scar after a pimple drys up.
Anywhooo, another face primer that I use is CARGO blu_ray high definition mattifier. I think it works well. Looks good in pics hence "blu_ray."
