I’m always getting questions about which drugstore skincare products are the best, and that’s always a tough answer. Using the proper ingredients on your face is paramount, and many times the less expensive drugstore brands pump up their products with less expensive ingredients, making them marketable but not effective. So when I do find a good drugstore skincare product I am thrilled to share it with you!

Enter the Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser. You have your choice of the creamy formula for more dry skin and the foaming formula, which I actually opted for. The ingredients list on this cleanser is very short, so that was already a plus before I tried it! And I noticed it’s formulated without parabens, it’s hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, and oil-free. That’s pretty major for a drugstore product. But then again, Neutrogena is a frontrunner in the skincare game, so no surprise there.

I’m so impressed with how gentle this cleanser is: I can have a very heavy cream foundation on, and with just one wash with the Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser and not only is all of my makeup off, but my skin feels soft. Even though it’s a foaming formula, there’s nothing soapy about this cleanser… It’s gentle yet powerful.

There are other similar products on the market, but most of them contain questionable ingredients that leave me concerned. I can confidently recommend the Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser to those of you who are looking for a good, standard daily face wash that’s easy on the pocketbook!
