Neutrogena Razor Defense Face Scrub

Item Description

How to review this stuff? It claims to both cleanse the face and soften the whiskers before a shave.

Well, it does get rid of the dead cells and whatnot. I was suffering an oily skin attack and this helped beat it back. But one of the big claims to fame on the packaging was how well it worked as a pre-shave.

Let me be the first to tell you that, for a tough set of whiskers, this stuff does jack. I let it sit for a long time, used different amounts on my face in the shower, and my whiskers were still as stiff as ever before the hot towel hit it. And no noticeable increase in ease of use of the hot towel after.

So, these ratings reflect that it's a pretty darn good exfoliant for me and a lousy pre-shave tool. YMMV, maybe with softer whiskers it works better, but then why would you need this product?

Pros: affordable
Cons: low exfoliation
above average product, exfoliates fairly well. the scent is not to my liking, but this is so inexpensive and easy to find I can forgive that.

If you use a DE razor I really don't see the need to use a scrub. Scrubs are more for electric razor users where you do not get a lot exfoliation. One of the advantages of DE razors is that exfoliation is a by product of the DE razor process and healthy for your skin. Adding a scrub to DE shaving would be too much and not necessary.
I agree - this scrub is good for cleaning but takes too much out of my skin to really be good for shaving since I want some oil left in my skin to shave on. It does get my face very clean before the shave, but I can do that a bunch of other ways.
