When I was a struggling teen with an oily skin, I’ve always had issues with selecting the right cleanser, with no proper knowledge of skincare and beauty, I introduced my sensitive skin to the world of products not knowing what was what and the results were, obviously, catastrophic. Slowly, things got easier and I came to know my skin better. As I have an extremely Oily and Acne Prone skin, I came to know, the gel / water based cleansers would work the best for me. I have given many gel based cleansers a try since then, I discovered Neutrogena and I was highly impressed by the results and I also tried the new brand in town, Swiss Tempelle.
Both the brands worked pretty well for me, so I decided to figure out the one that is actually greater, here are my thoughts and views on these gel based cleansers:
Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser (Normal to Oily Skin): Review
Neutrogena has a whole range of skincare products and is a brand that is very popular and needs no introduction. There are various types and sizes of the cleansers available and I tried the deep clean range. As it is a gel based cleanser, my skin was very comfortable with it. Here is a mini review:
As I have an excessive oily skin, cleansing with Neutrogena was highly impressive. The cleanser provided a squeaky clean skin, melting all the dirt and grime away. I experienced no severe dryness but it can be a little drying for normal skin types. It did not affect my acne directly, it just took care of the excess oil and dirt, which eventually minimized the acne formation on my face. Neutrogena has a separate cleanser for acne too. It also worked really well on water proof makeup and matte liquid lipsticks, I didn’t have to use a makeup wipe or a cleansing balm, it was all gone in one wash.
Swiss Tempelle Deep Purifying Face Wash
Swiss Tempelle presents products of Switzerland concentrating on Indian ingredients. I liked their paraben free ranges of body washes and it influenced me to try their face washes too. This face wash concentrates on pimples and is enriched with Neem, Tulsi and Glacier water. I found this cleanser very gentle, the slight cooling touch of it was appreciated by my acne prone skin, however it is not that strong enough to dissolve excess oil or makeup and is good for everyday gentle morning cleansing. It hardly foams and lathers up when massaged. The cleanser was very gentle on my active acne, I did not experience any burning or tingling sensations. It is soothingly aromatic. I noticed very minimal results on my severe acne prone skin. It is good for people with normal skin types as it is unable to dissolve excess oil. It can be beneficial for people who deal with acne rarely, the results are very minimal on a severe acne prone skin.
If I compare these cleansers, I liked Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleanser better. It was able to embrace my excessive oily skin well. I really liked how clean my skin felt post application. It is well built for an oily skin type. On the other hand Swiss Tempelle is an amazing option for people with mild acne and normal skin. It is mild, gentle and soothing. This range of Neutrogena is not cruelty free as studied from the sources, Swiss Tempelle claims to be 100% cruelty free, I reached out to the brand and my query was answered. You can get them on Nykaa.
