Products to maybe avoid - Neutrogena Deep Clean

My sister recently had an experience with a facial cleanser similar to my Crest Pro-Health issues.

She bought a bottle of Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser on Friday, and by Tuesday morning had realized that it was making her face so dry it was painful.

She spent most of Tuesday applying layer after layer of moisturizer and baby oil to try to restore the moisture on her face, but it didn't seem to help.  It was as if her face couldn't soak in enough moisturizer.  In the evening she went to the gym but as soon as she started working up a sweat, the salt from the sweat on her face started burning her dry skin and her face turned purple!

She came home and applied a layer of avocado, but then had to ICE her face because it was still burning.  Eventually it seemed to subside and she went to bed, but woke up in the middle of the night and had to reapply another layer of moisturizer.  The next morning her face was still red but finally retaining moisture.

So warning - if you have sensitive skin you may want to avoid this product!
