I LOVE this product! Yes, it does have a strong smell and yes it does dry your skin but that's kind of the point. It's 2% salicylic acid so it's going to be slightly irritating. I wouldn't recommend it for people with really sensitive skin but for me it works great. I use it once a day before going to bed followed by moisturizer. I could see a difference within a week. All the blackheads on my nose have disappeared and the texture of my face is so much smoother. It definitely exfoliates so I don't need to use a scrub anymore. Clearly, from reading other reviews it doesn't work for everyone but I definitely think it's worth a go. Love it!

I got this product because I have combination oily skin and I was hoping that this would help control the oil. It didn't do much at all. Plus when I first used it the alcohol smell totally threw me off. I didn't want to continue but was stubborn and decided to stick with it anyways. Finally gave up after I went through 1/3 of the bottles. It dries my skin out, especially the area around my mouth and my mouth. It also leaves a burning feeling around my nose area. I still have like 2/3 of the bottle sitting on my table and I have no clue what to do with it. I switched to Alba hibiscus toner now and it's just so much better.

    Comments about Neutrogena Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent, 8 fl oz:

    I use this after I clean my face with Noxema. It takes the excess make-up off and helps keep my skin clear. It does dry my skin out, but like someone else commented, that is kind of the point. I have used this for over a year and will continue to use it.

      I've been using this product for years to remove makeup at the end of the day. It works great and cleans my skin without drying even though it's an astringent. I really love the smell too and one bottle lasts a long time even with using every day.

      Comments about Neutrogena Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent, 8 fl oz:

      I used to use an expensive dept. store brand, but tried this to save on money, and I actually like this better. I continue to buy Clear Pore even though my financial situation has improved, and I could afford the more expensive brands. This is a terrific product, and the smell is not overwhelming, as with so many other products.

            I have been buying this for years. When the seasons change, my face changes too, and becomes oily in the t-zone until it adjusts. This product cleans without drying for a great complexion and ultra clean feel.

            I love this product, except for the fact that the smell is quite strong. If i get high on my cheek bones, it tends to burn my eyes. Other than that, this product is great.

                Comments about Neutrogena Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent, 8 fl oz:

                This product contains 45% alcohol - and that's way too high for me. Maybe if I were 16 with acne-prone skin and a very, very oily complexion, this astringent would be appropriate, but I'm 50+ with somewhat sensitive skin and this product was just way toooooo harsh for me. After using it for a few days, my face developed horrible dry patches and just an over-kill attitude.

                Neutrogena makes several toners that IMHO are much better. [see Neutrogena pore refining toner and/or alcohol free toner]. The word "astringent" in the name of this product says it all. If you have combination and/or sensitive skin, I would NOT recommend this product. Stay away from anything that has THIS much alcohol in it.
