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.

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

    I had to switch to a product with a lower % of benzol peroxide when I was pregnant because the kind I was using was not recommended for pregnant women. I found this and it works almost as well. When I put it on my usual tricky spots in advance of getting pimples, it usually helps to keep them from sprouting. It is not quite as effective when they are already there.

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

      I have oily skin, and even though I'm a middle-aged adult I still get pimples on occasion. Neutragena on the Spot is the best treatment for me to get rid of pimples as well as to prevent them in oily spots where I'm prone to getting them. It doesn't dry my skin out, even if I use it twice a day. I can't use any acne products that contain salicylic acid because it actually makes my pimples worse and irritates my skin, so I have been a devoted user of Neutragena on the Spot for about 10 years.

        I occasionally have a few pimples. I just put this on when I first notice them, usually at night. Most are gone by morning and all after just two days. It does not dry out my skin either. I will continue to use this product.

        Doesn't work ! Horrible!!

        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.

                  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.
