Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash makes sense for my skin care concerns and my budget. I have oily yet sensitive skin, large pores and a tendancy to mild breakouts. The salicytic acid is a must to my daily routine which helps to keep pimples at bay. It also helps to minimize the duration of any eruptions. This wash rinses clean and has no noticible odor. I've tried a handful of other cleansers over the years including those in the Neutrogena line, but always return to Oil Free Acne Wash. It's been a staple for years!

I've been using this face soap for years. I'd say if I'd collected the bottles I'd have a tall garbage bag full. This soap keeps my skin looking clear. The only thing you might run into is dried skin. Duh. That's because the sacylic acid. It's GOING to do that. Anyways you just need this and some good moisturizer like Clean & Clear Dual Action or SheerCover Moisturizer and you'll be good. I use this to remove my makeup after applying baby oil gel to my eyes. I use a LOT of eye makeup and this seems to do the trick. Anyways, this is one of my faaaavorite products that I can't do without. :-) Yes, I would and do recommend buying this product - that is if I've left any for you in the stores!!

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

    I use this with another liquid facial cleanser and i find that it keeps my adult acne very minimal. I find that if i leave this step out, i tend to get more bumps. never used it only on its own. i think it would be too strong for my skin.

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

      Back when I was on Retin-A, this was too harsh for my skin and dried it out to the point of painful cracking. But eventually Retin-A (and other prescription meds) became ineffective or too harsh on my skin themselves. So I went to this cleanser alone. It has been excellent at helping relieve my oily, dull, congested skin. Sometimes I'll even mix it was baking soda for a great scrub and use it on my face, neck, chest, and upper back.

        I LOVE the 'pump' dispenser as you can screw it back down, i.e., as it was shipped, thus closing or shutting off the pump head and preventing additional soap to be pumped or dispensed out in your luggage when you travel !! VERY CONVENIENT !!

        I just started using this cleanser for less than a week and I can significantly feel that my greasy skin no longer produces nasty sebum as much as before. My acne has also dry up since I introduced this wonderful cleanser to my daily skincare regime.

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

              I tried this based on a recommendation from my dermatologist. I've heard it's great, you always see it on the beauty awards lists, but I was not impressed. It smells like laundry detergent (wouldn't necessarily say that's a bad thing, but it's not really my favorite for a face wash). I have very sensitive skin and also have moderate acne, this made my skin dry and irritated, didn't really do much for my breakouts (sometimes it made them worse - probably because it was too harsh), and even my neck got a little dry and itchy from using it in the shower. If you have very oily skin and need a product to really dry up your skin, this is for you. My moderately oily skin just couldn't take it.

                I've been using this product for about two months now and my acne has not improved. I still have the same amount of acne. It dries out my skin while leaving it uncomfortably tight. I dont recommend this product. Salicylic Acid is very strong and I dont recommend it for people who have sensitive skin!

                  It started out okay for like the first 2 uses but then it dried out my skin horribly and made it red and flaky. Although it cleared up some of my acne it left me with new breakouts from the iritation. Last night i chucked in the trash and now i use cetaphil again which worked great in the past and still does. :)
