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:

I bought this product about three weeks ago at Wal*Mart as I was using an Avon acne treatment before that and stopped buying it due to waiting times and economic reasons [...]. I have pretty severe acne on and off, sometimes my skin will be clear for days or even weeks at a time with one tiny pimple here or there but there are times I get huge nodules that are inflamed, red, painful and won't go away for long periods of time. I decided to try this product as I am a "very" stressed human being in general. I noticed that it DOES help with the horrid inflammation that I get and some of the redness dicipates as well with use of this product. However, I don't believe it fights oncoming acne very well so don't count on it if you have an upcoming test at school or something. I would say overall it's pretty good but defenitely not the end of your acne for good.

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

    I used this product at night only for a few day and began to notice some red patches forming around my more oily jaw line. As I got to seven days, the patches were darker and looked like irrated bumps on the skin. I stopped immediately after this reaction. I have never had a reaction like this to any product for acne treatment since using Proactiv like 10 years ago. I have a feeling that the alcohol ingredients irritated my sensitive combination skin. The red/dry marks are still noticeable even after 2 weeks since using the product. Please beware if you have sensitive skin and proceed with caution with this product.

        I have to say that Neutrogena products seem to be a waste of money! I had high hopes after reading these reviews, but this didn't do a darn thing for my adult acne. I never had acne as a teenager, but I have problems with it on my chin and forehead. I have found better luck using Philosophy products.

            This cleanser is amazing. It stops me from having any breakouts at all. Also, my skin used to get greasy, but now using this cleanser my skin is normal. I thought all the products from this line would be the same as this product, but I tried the cream cleanser and I don't like it at all.

              I have been using this product for several years, and love it. I use it to wash my face at night before bed, and it works pretty well to halt acne. My skin gets very oily throughout the day, so this does well to remove the grease. I do use prescription medication for acne breakouts, but oftentimes this face wash is enough to keep my skin clear by itself.

                This didn't do anything for my acne and when I started using it, I started breaking out again. I used about half of it and threw it away. Also, it smells like cucumbers which is a smell that many people like but I find disgusting. I love neutrogena but was not impressed with this.

                  My daughter was told by her dermatologist to find a mild acne cleanser, that wouldn't dry-out her skin, since the meds she was taking would do that as it was. We found this and tried it, and she loves it. It's been a perfect cleanser for her, and I'e found that when I occasionally break-out, it works for my adult acne, too. Great price, great product. The perfect combo!

                      Power foam wash is an easy to use Acne control system. Don't get mad at it if it doesn't clear up your acne, because it's only supposed to prevent it. And if it dries your skin, simply use your everyday moisturizer to fix that up. If you need acne control try using a stronger product, such as Oxy, or Stridex maximum face cleanser pads.
