I'm a licensed esthetician. I recommend this product for women who can't afford my main line. It's good for oily skin, but needs to be used with a non-salicylic moisturizer. It's great for inflammatory acne, as it has the soothing cucumber in the formula. Not the biggest fan of the foam, which can be a bit overly drying, but again, that's why they need moisturizers too.

I love using this with people with types of hormonal/inflammatory acne, sebum control, or those who want daily care for their blackheads.

Probably won't be the most effective with cystic acne. Bacterial acne is often best treated by a benzoyl peroxide instead of this product, but results may occur depending on the skin type.

I wanted to like this product, I really did. The first week I used this, it was soothing, gentle, removed makeup and oil, though didn't seem to be doing anything for my few zits. After that, it started preventing breakouts, but as the cooler seasons approached, it completely dried my skin out; my forehead, nose and chin began flaking, despite the fact that I have oily skin and apply a generous amount of moisturizer after every use. For something that's only .5% Salicylic Acid, this is way too powerful and took over my skin routine (I can't use my toner or my zit cream as much anymore, because this is drying enough). I suppose this could work better as a summer product for those who don't use any other things with it. Lastly, it lasts absolutely forever, which is annoying for me because I've been trying to get rid of it for some time now. I got it in mid-August, now it's the end of November, and with every day use, I still have a inch of product left in the bottle. I will not buy again. Switching to Clean & Clear's Detoxifying Facial Cleanser.

    Comments about Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment, Power-Foam Wash, 6 fl oz:

    This product is great for someone who has mild to severe acne problems...but there is a cache, 2-3 days of using this product and your facial skin gets really dry, so you have to watch out for that and don't use it too much, balance the drying by using moisturizing face soap and lotion.

      Comments about Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment, Power-Foam Wash, 6 fl oz:

      This is a good, solid product. The foam is rich and not watered down feeling like some others I've tried, and cleans right through makeup and oil. It feels gentle, and never made my face red or irritated. However, the packaging sucks. The pump only works for about half the bottle, and then it stops up and you have to force it to get the product out. Very annoying. Other than that, it's a good choice.

      This product smells nice, it removes make up and oil. However it doesn't prevent pimples, I found that it somewhat makes pimples worse.

        I use the product at least two times a day and more if necessary in trouble spots. It clears up the complexion quickly and prevents new breakouts. There is nothing negative to say about it. I recommended it to my 25 year old son.

          I have very sensitive skin, and this 0.5% Salicylic Acid doesn't irritate my skin near as bad as the 2.0% Salicylic Acid.

          However, I can only leave the 0.5% Salicylic Acid in contact with my skin for about 30 seconds or so (less than a minute), or my skin ends up red for several hours, unlike the 2.0% strength which had left my skin red for a couple days.

            This is the best face wash I have ever used, and I have used many! I've tried nearly every product on the market and nothing has made my face feel as clean and refreshed as this foaming wash. I use it with an exfoliating face sponge so I get the exfoliation as well as the deep clean foaming action. Nuetrogena products are the only products I trust for my skin and face and out of all of their face washes this one works the best for me.
