Neutrogena's Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser Smells Like What?


I don't typically like to do bad reviews on my blog. Yes, they can be helpful but I like sharing products I love rather than bashing on one. However, there are always exceptions. I've wanted to try this product for SO long. I love fruity smells and thought this grapefruit scent would be right up my alley. It's been featured by Allure as a favorite beauty product and because of it's popularity Neutrogena has even extended the line into body wash and scrubs.


After all the hype, I gave in. It looked so pretty in the bottle - great pink color. It smelled really good as I pumped it out onto my hand. As I was rubbing the product on my face, my excitement was interrupted by some awful smell. So bad. It smelled like a sweaty armpit with bad B.O. I was very confused as to where this horrid smell was coming from. Could it be my towel? The next time I washed my face with the product I made sure it used a fresh out of the laundry towel and yet the same problem.  


Is it expired? No, it says 2013 on the bottom of the bottle. After being suspicious of everything else... I had to face the fact that it was the face wash.

I have no idea why this happens but I'm so disappointed. I wasted $7.99 on this cleanser to just have it smell horrible on my face. I'll stick to my Cetaphil.

Have you had this problem?

  1. OOooh...that is not good! Believe it or not, with Neutrogena it's very hit or miss with me. I used their foaming face cleanser and I didn't like it at all! Dried my face out and even the bottle was giving me issues. The only cleanser of theirs that I was so in love with(and I can't even find it anymore) is their nightcalming one that smells like lavendar on and off of your face.

  5. Omg I thought I was the only one. After I applied it to my face, I kept smelling my arm pits and blouse wondering where that sweaty armpit smell was coming from and then I realized that was the smel of the pink grape fruit, however I love what it's doing for my face as some who never gets pimples.
