Why it's great:
This is the acne cream I keep coming back to. I am 30 years old and have had acne since I was a preteen. I've tried everything - Accutane, Retin-A, antibiotics, birth control pills, philosophie, Proactive, Oxy 10, Clearasil, you name it.

This stuff works because it kills the bacteria that cause acne but the dose of benzoyl peroxide is low enough that it does not overdry and irritate the skin if used properly.

How to use:
I use with a mild soap like Cetaphil. DON'T COMBINE THIS WITH HARSH CLEANSERS/OTHER ACNE MEDICATIONS.
I use it all over my face at night and I apply to the few zits I actually have in the morning. Make sure your SKIN IS COMPLETELY DRY AFTER CLEANSING before you apply it because otherwise it can cause redness and irritation. Give it a few days/weeks to start working because it will take some time for the dead skin to be exfoliated. During this time it is possible that you may get a few more breakouts than usual. Don't give up though, it should work if you follow my instructions. And USE A MOISTURIZER WITH SUNSCREEN DURING THE DAY.

IMPORTANT - Also, USE WHITE LINENS - towels and sheets/pillowcases - because it will bleach fabric. That is really the only major problem, in my opinion.

This product will work for me at first for a few weeks and then it will suddenly stop working. My skin is just like that when it comes to ance medications. It will build up a tolerance and then the product will be ineffective. I would have to buy this once every 3 months or so in order to be constent with it, or I'd have to use it for a few weeks, switch to something else, and then switch back. Which is probably only adding to the acne that I'm trying to get rid of. But its inexpensive, and I trust this Neutrogena so I don't mind going back to it.

Doesn't work ! Horrible!!

By Babyg

from Pasadena, ca

Comments about Neutrogena On-the-Spot Acne Treatment, Vanishing Formula, .75 oz:

It doesn't work and it messed up all my towels. Even if you rinse your hands or face after you use this product, do NOT touch your towels!! It took me a while before I realized what was casing all my towels to have stains on them.. And by the time I realized it was this product, all my towels had nasty breech stains on them! I wish I never bought this product, now I have to buy new set of towels. Would have been better off not even purchasing this product.. It's going to cost me to replace those towels !!! I'm so upset about this I literally threw away the entire product !!

    My husband and daughter use this product all of the time. We had one tube and my husband had to keep searching for it in my daughters bathroom so I bought two tubes - problem solved. They use this product on zits after washing their faces before bedtime.

      Comments about Neutrogena On-the-Spot Acne Treatment, Vanishing Formula, .75 oz:

      I use this at night after washing my face and mosturizing. I apply it on active breakouts and notice a big difference in the morning. All of the pimples I apply this spot treatment to are visibly smaller. Be careful not to overuse this product because it can definetely cause your skin to dry and start to flake. Overall, it really helps with my acne. Love it!

        Its not the fault of this product, I have to say. I have realized that none of the benzoyl peroxide products really work. I ended up buying Wipeout after a friend told be about it and it cleared my face in a month. I finished the Neutrogena product as well. But it was the Wipeout pill that worked, not this stuff.

            Comments about Neutrogena On-the-Spot Acne Treatment, Vanishing Formula, .75 oz:

            I guess there really is no product that works for everyone. I bought this because my friend swears by it, but it honestly did nothing for my pimples. If anything, it made them worse! The area where I applied the cream became dry and irritated, which looks worse than having a few pimples. To make matters worse, it left dark purple acne scars that take forever to disappear. Usually when I get a pimple, it leaves a light brown spot that disappears in a few weeks. But on the pimples where I applied this cream, it left oddly dark and stubborn acne scars. This is the worst acne product I have ever used.

            I'm sure there are people out there who love this stuff, but I really recommend that you try it out on just one pimple before you go applying this stuff all over your face. Make sure it works for you before you commit to it.

                It doesn't work. And it actually irrates my skin a lot. I guess it might actually work great on some people, since there are some good reviews of this product, but not in my case. Maybe it's just individual difference.

                I used this product before , and it didn't really do much. I tried it again this month (I only used it at night) , and All hell broke loose on my face, I broke out more than usual. I have sensitive skin, and it dried my skin extremely bad around my nose area and made it a super red color. I wouldn't recommend this product if you have sensitive skin at all, but what may not work for me may work for you all skin is different. Overall I did NOT like this acne cream.
