Neutrogena Visibly Clear Spot Proofing range plus giveaway!

I remember when I was in my early twenties, I suffered from quite bad breakouts on a regular basis but I still had pretty dehydrated skin. It’s a bit of a conundrum because you want to treat the breakout but you also don’t want to strip your skin or dehydrate it even more. The new Neutrogena Visibly Clear® Spot Proofing™ range that has just hit shelves solves that exact problem, woohoo!

This new and improved Visibly Clear® range combines the gentleness you would expect from a Neutrogena cleanser with the incredible spot fighting ingredient, Salicylic acid, meaning that you can banish your breakouts without damaging your skins natural barrier of defense. Another noticable change in the products is the amount that they foam up. Most gel cleansers use surfactants which is why they lather up so much when you cleanse, but it also gives the cleanser the ability to wash away any impurities causing breakouts. Unfortunately, surfactants also strip the skin and really have a nasty effect on the skin’s barrier. What Neutrogena has done is create and patent BarrierCare technology™ which is in both the wash and the scrub. This super smart technology tells the cleansing agent in the product to attach itself to polymers that are naturally derived and too bit to strip the skin, giving the product a mild foaming effect while helping to preserve the skin’s barrier function.

There is a second technology that Neutrogena has developed for the Visibly Clear Spot Proofing range called ClearDefend™, and it is the absolute star of the show. This is the ingredient that will go deep down into your pores and fight off breakouts but will still leave most of the skins essential nutrients in tact. The range as a whole is made up of three steps:

  1. Cleanse: Daily Wash
  2. Purify: Smoothing Scrub and Purifying Lotion
  3. Treat: 2 in 1 Wash Mask and the Daily Moisturiser.

I gave the range to my sister to try out for a full month as she suffers from breakouts but like me, has quite a dehydrated skin. She gave me a breakdown on each of the products she used as well as how her skin is feeling and looking now, 4 weeks later.

Visibly Clear® Spot Proofing™ Daily Wash (R109,95 for 200ml): a gel formula cleanser that foams up slightly to remove impurities that cause breakouts, but does not disturb the skins barrier function

Foams really nicely and removed the little bit of make up that I occasionally wear. Left my skin feeling really fresh and clean and only ever so slightly tight, but not enough to make me not like the product.

Visibly Clear® Spot Proofing™ Smoothing Scrub (R109,95 for 150ml): an exfoliator made from naturally derived exfoliants to help increase skin cell turnover while also working deeper down into the pores to fight breakouts.

One of my favourite products in the range; it has a thick consistency which I enjoyed and it gave a really good “scrubby” exfoliation without being too harsh on my skin.

Visibly Clear® Spot Proofing™ Purifying Toner (R109,95 for 200ml): a no rinse formula that is used after cleansing, this non-drying toner leaves the skin feeling fresh and clean.

So refreshing! I didn’t experience any burning at all with this product.

Visibly Clear® Spot Proofing™ Oil Free Moisturiser (R109,95 for 50m): oil free and lightweight, it provides the skin with hydration throughout the day without clogging pores.

Initially I did not like this moisturiser as it felt a bit heavy on my skin but after a few seconds it really sinks in and feels good. A little really goes a long way which makes me think that this tube will last a good while.

Visibly Clear® Spot Proofing™ 2 in 1 Wash-Mask (R109,95 for  150ml): can be used as a deep cleansing mask once a week or a daily cleanser that foams up.

This was probably my favourite product and I even used it over my shoulders and chest. I really liked the cool tingle I felt when I put it on and when I removed it my skin actually felt quite hydrated. Definitely a product that I would use regularly.

All in all, this is a really inclusive range that is simple to use, especially if you are lazy with skincare like I am. I loved the citrus scent of the products and would probably repurchase quite a few of these products. My skin feels hydrated and I didn’t experience any additional breakouts while using the range. If you are looking for a spot fighting formula in a product that won’t damage your skin, this new offering from Neutrogena is well worth a go, plus it is really affordable, what’s not to love?!

Here’s a quick video for you to see a few of the products in action:

      Hi Megan
      Great question – thanks! Because I am so fair, my skin goes red after most products, but not because of a reaction, burning or any sort of discomfort. I found the products really great, especially considering their price point. Bear in mind though that they are made for a more oily/combination skin type so if you are more dehydrated, I would only use one or two products if you were really keen to try the range.
      Hope this helps!

    I am most excited about the oil free moisturiser. I have extremely oily skin and have been struggling to find a moisturiser that controls oils without drying out my skin cause that always sends it on oil production overdrive. The 2 in 1 wash and mask looks promising too.

    These products would be amazing for me, I’m usually prone to breakouts and stubborn ones too. This would be amazing because it’s hard to find a good brand of products for myself, I’ve changed my facial products twice this year because I wasn’t happy with the results. Hopefully if I win this it might help with my skin.

    Great article and very informative about the products. 💚🌹
