Rated 5 out of 5 by PookieLove23 It worked for me!
I've never had big breakouts of acne, but I did get pimples and blackheads regularly enough for it to bother me. I would use this product everyday as part of my daily maintenance regime and it was gentle enough not to dry out my skin, it also did not make my skin oily, but kept it fresh. My acne was reduced significantly enough that my fiance even took notice of the change. I love it and would definitely recommend it! :)
Rated 4 out of 5 by wakeforest11 effective acne wash
This face cleaner works very well at clearing up acne. It does not suds up at all, which would be nice. It also doesn't really smell like much.. It is effective for what it is intended -- to clear and prevent acne break outs.
Rated 2 out of 5 by GurliGurl Didn't do a thing
at first this product was useful, and i have bad acne all over my forehead, and some acne on my cheeks and chin. at first it worked, but then it had the opposite effect on me. it started increasing my acne, so i tried clearasil, which doesn't do anything but sting. i have not tried anything that works so far. do not buy this stuff! it does not work!!!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Practical101 Didn't work for me..
I started getting a little acne on my chin last summer and I had already bought this product. I was using it when my breakouts started. I kept using it thinkng my acne would go away, but it didn't. I used up almost a whole bottle and there was only a negative change in my acne. I now use what I have left as a body wash but I will not buy this product again for anything. It may work for some people, but not for me.
Rated 2 out of 5 by jeb70791 didn't work
i tried two full bottles of this and it did not do anything for me and i wash my face twice a day and wear their "skin clearing" make-up. the only thing i do like about this product is it is a very good make-up remover but not very great on clearing up my skin.
Rated 1 out of 5 by NatariLove101 Horrible Product! DON'T use/buy!
This product did not help at all! If anything, it gave me iches on my face, and breakouts the spreaded rapidly! It took me at least 2 months to see the pimples it gave me minimize! And their still here! It's rough on the skin, and dries it drasticallyyyy. At least 5 constant days of lotion will regain your skin's color. Simply not the the best! I would not recomend this to anyone.
Rated 1 out of 5 by ashbley222 I bought this product because i had a friend that used it and it worked great for her. I in no way had the same results. The first time i used it, my face seemed a little dry but i figured it was just because i had just switched face washes. I was wrong. I have used it only about 8 times and i cannot even move my face it is so dry. My skin doesn't feel like skin. It hurts every time i open my mouth. It didnt even get rid of my problem areas. I would never reccommend this product to anyone.
Rated 1 out of 5 by devilbunny22 this is the worst product ever it made my face all dry after usin it 4 like 2 days plus it made my face feel all tight yea it kinda of cleared my acne but it ruined my face
Rated 5 out of 5 by everydayholiday I buy this for my teenage son whose face breaks out if he doesn't regularly wash. He uses it morning and night, and it works great for him. It's reasonably priced also.
Rated 2 out of 5 by jkerns not worth the money
I bought this product after having my daughter.I had a bad breakout and I love this brand.I was really disappointed in this product however.It doesn't clear up acne,and I know it says oil free but it's not suppose to dry your skin out.After just a few uses,I noticed my face felt really dry after I washed it.It just doesn't work.I wish I had read some reviews before I tried this.
Rated 5 out of 5 by clairebabygo Good product, will keep buying
Good for taking of make up, and won't dry out your skin.
Rated 5 out of 5 Had this since Sunday, and results are coming in!
This is absolutely great, along with the astringent
Rated 3 out of 5 by Dacy Effective
This is a good product in my opinion. I clears up breakouts fast and keeps a large percentage at bay. I was expecting dramatic results but I'm still satisfied with the job it did. I have oily but sensitive skin so I cant really use it that often.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Lydsy334 OWWWWW!!!!
I used this product twice, and it dried out my face soooo badly that I couldn't even move my mouth!! My face turned red and flaky, and it looked like I was growing scales. At first, I thought this reaction was from my acne cream, but after reading these reviews, I realized it must've been this wash's fault. I doubt I'll ever use this junk again. PLEASE ,please, Neutrogena, make a gentler, more effective wash, so others don't have to experience the horrible side effects.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Mario The worst
This product completely ruined my face and i thought it couldn't get any worse. My face got more dry the more i used it; but it did remove some of the acne. It also damaged the skin around my nose and my mouth; because of that i couldn't eat for two days because of the that it had caused me. Just to see some result i had to use it three times a day, but when i used it twice daily. I saw no result.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Onyx Worst product i EVER used
When i tried this , the first night it was okay. The 2nd time i used it , it burned when i put it on my face and when i washed it off my face was dry and hard to move. It burned when i would try to smile and it just simply dried out my face. This product sucks.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Amiri78 Chemical burns
This caused so much redness, dryness, and peeling that it looked like I'd had a bad chemical peel. I didn't even want to go out in public. Don't use this if you're using prescription topical acne treatments!!!!
Rated 1 out of 5 by oliviakatharine Everything has gotten worse
The first week of using this product i was amazed on how fast it started working. After time, however, i developed dry, peeling skin with more acne than ever. My skin now burns whenever i cleanse it. It seems like my acne is never helped by this product and is multiplying with every use. I do not recomend it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by precious321 Best Acne Product!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've been using this product for just over a month and it does exactly what it promises to do...Clear Acne, even the stubborn ones.
Rated 1 out of 5 by crystal Caused me so much PAIN!
Well I have always had acne, so when I was out shopping with a co-worker she recommended that I try this product out, my review may not be helpful but I used this product as the directions said on the bottle, and I only used it maybe 3-4 times, but my face around my mouth area was like totally blistered in horrible pain, and is still trying to heal. I dont know that if I use it less maybe eventually my skin will get adjusted to it, but im scared to give it a try.
Rated 1 out of 5 by lilly31 worst product i've ever used
I used this product Friday morning on a day off and luckily I did because it caused me to have such a reaction. Shortly after I used it I noticed my face felt tight and sore and when I looked in a mirror it caused me to also have redness in the areas I used it. Over the day my face was sore and itchy and felt tight like I had sun burnt my face and was extremely uncomfortable. The following day the redness had gone down and my face felt really dry and rough. Two days later and now Sunday my skin is still itchy and is now peeling and now this has made me feel so self conscious that I stayed in when I was invited out and dreading university tomorrow. NEVER BUY THIS PRODUCT in case you have a reaction like me ... INSTEAD I recommend you use others even supermarket branded ones are better than this.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Steph5000 Worst thing that's ever been on my skin!
I bought this b/c I was out of my regular cleanser of clinque and wanted something quick I could pump and go with after two days it had burned my skin. My skin around my mouth is completely dried as if it has been severely burned. It hurts when ANYTHING touches it and only feels good when holding a wet rag on it. I have never had any skin product react to me this way. I have NKA. Use this product at your own risk!!
Rated 1 out of 5 by dontuse1 HORRIBLE
Do not get this product. My face has held up so much but this product caused so much irritation it's unbelievable. DO NOT BUY!
Rated 1 out of 5 by november13 This is the most HORRIBLE facial cleanser
I used this once and my face broke out soooo bad it irritated my skin to the point that it felt I was goign to break out in hives!!! My skin is so horrible now I feel embarassed to go anywhere, even with makeup on you can tell that my skin is in need of some seroius help... All in all this is the WORST face wash that I have ever used and would never reccomend this to ANYONE!!!!
Rated 1 out of 5 by GoTitans My skin got way worse after using this
The skin around my mouth, chin, and nose turned super flaky and broken out. I had tons of small and big pimples in that area. After I stopped using it, my face slowly healed to normal.
Rated 5 out of 5 by TheThoughtful1 It works! (for oily skin)
I've been using this product for about 15 years. Obviously, if it didn't work, I would've given it up long ago. I know it works because whenever I run out and go without, after a few days I start getting acne. I have oily skin and live in a dry climate, but am not experiencing the dryness and irritation that others have claimed. I highly recommend this to anybody with oily skin and suffering from acne.
Rated 1 out of 5 by OhioLady23 My poor skin!!!
I have been using Neutrogena for as long as I can remember. I currently use their acne stress scrub without any issues. I grabbed this product since I was out of a product that I used for a basic wash. The next day I used it in the AM and by that evening I was completely dry, itchy and red. It has been 3 days since I stopped using this product and my skin is so dry its flaking off my face. I have NEVER had a bad reaction to any of Neutrogenas products. This wash has destroyed my face...I am just praying it will be soft and normal again soon.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Satisfied Very effective
I used a product that made me to break out all over my face, Istarted using the oil-free acne wash followed by the rapid clear pads and lastly the 2 in 1 fight and fade toner two times a day and within ten days all the breakouts have gone and I only have the dark spots now which I know will fade with time.
Rated 3 out of 5 It dries my face
Well a bought this product 2 weeks ago. The firs time that I used my face felt so clean and fresh so I started to used before I go to bed and in the morning when I woke up but a the 3rd day of using it my skin around my mouth started to fell itchy I though because the weather was changing so I continued to uses my now that I have a week of using this product my skin around my mouth is all dry it feels terrible my skin is red if you don't want to have this feeling don't buy this product. TERRIBLE NOW I NEED HELP WITH MY SKIN EVEN MORE
Rated 2 out of 5 by DW76 Dries me out!
I've only been using this for a week, so I can't properly discern its overall effectiveness, but I can say that my skin is now incredibly dry. Use lots of moisturizer and drink lots of water when using the product. I've also started using it in the winter, so the elements have not really helped with the results. My skin feels tight, looks dull, and is peeling a bit around some problem areas. It may work for some, but I'm not really a fan.
