This lotion keeps my acne under control. I've used this product for almost three months and my acne is the best it's ever been. I'm in my 30s and have cystic acne. This has been the one product line that has kept it in check. So try it out. It's worth the price and you can use a flexible spending account to purchase it, even better!

I successfully used the product (Neutrogena Clear Pore Treatment) that this product replaced, for ten years, without ever experiencing any problems. However, Neutrogena added a strong fragrance to this new Rapid Clear Acne Defense lotion. I've tried to use it for several weeks but developed a pink mask-like rash on my face in the areas where I've applied it. I have never had any problems with any other Salicylic acid acne product before, though I was always careful to avoid products that contain fragrances.
Neutrogena offers fragrance-free versions of their soaps, so they must be aware of this problem that many of their customers face. I wish that they would sell their Clear Pore Treatment again, or offer a fragrance-free version of this product.
It does control my acne as effectively as the previous product, but I've had to discontinue its use due to the irritation.

    Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Acne Defense Face Lotion, 1.7 fl oz:

    I dread the word acne, I have had the worst experience with adult cystic acne and had to go through a cycle of accutane a year ago. Now that I am off it, my skin is getting oily and the blemishes are coming back. So I got this product to try for sometime and I am pleasantly surprised as to how great it is. Although I changed my skincare routine quite a bit, this product plays a big part in it. I wash my face with Panoxyl with the ecotools konjac sponge. Then follow with using Simple soothing toner. Then I apply this, let it sit for a while then use Smashbox primer/ Olay total seven effects during the day. During the night, I use the Julep serum. My skin feels soft and supple and blemish free. The only downside to this product is that it doesn't have sun protection which would make it the perfect product out there. I recommend trying for a while. Just make sure, you don't overuse it and dry out your skin.

          Clears up my skin without drying it out. I ran out a couple days ago and starting using Estee Lauder Advance Night repair. Within 3 days I have 5 new pimples.

            This had been so hard to find locally, I was delighted to find it at drugstore.com. I don't necessarily use it every day, but I like it especially in the summer because it is so light. It does separate a bit if it doesn't get used frequently so it needs to be shaken up a bit.

            Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Acne Defense Face Lotion, 1.7 fl oz:

            I LOVED the old version of this product. This newer version (bottle with the grey bottom half) is not as lotiony or fluid... its harder to spread it around your face (not a good thing for a face lotion). Because its more difficult to spread I think I tend to use more of it quicker.
            It seems to help with acne though...

              Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Acne Defense Face Lotion, 1.7 fl oz:

              I bought this go with the Oil Eliminating face wash, but neither worked for me. This did nothing to clear or prevent acne. Both products made it worse. It does moisturize, but did nothing to control oil or reduce the breakout this and the face wash caused. I do not respond that well to Salicylic Acid, but thought this may still be good as non-oily moisturizer. Not good enough for my oily T-zone. Even my cheeks which are usually normal were oily after using these two products together.

              This stuff is the most amazing stuff ever. Ordered some on a lark after reading the ecstatic reviews here (and since I was at my wits end). I have terrible adult, cystic acne and have tried the retin-a, the proactiv...all the usual suspects, dermatologist-provided and retail. None of that came close to the efficacy of this stuff. For me this doesn't prevent acne altogether but it does turn my painful cystic acne into normal, non-painful blemishes that are easy to clear up. I use it 2x a day and after 3 months it hasn't dried out my skin at all (whereas proactiv dried my skin out terribly). This is the only thing I have found that works for me. Give it a try.

                Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Acne Defense Face Lotion, 1.7 fl oz:

                This is my favorite face lotion! My skin gets very dry around my nose and mouth without lotion daily. However, all other lotions tend cause pimples on my skin after a couple weeks. This is the perfect balance. My skin stays soft and clear.

                Only con is be careful in the sun or tanning if you have sensitive skin bc it makes your face a little more sensitive. Nothing to be real worried about though.

                BIGGEST PROBLEM- its very hard to find. most stores only sell it in a pack with 2 other acne treatments. I only need the lotion. SO if you like it, make sure you buy another before you run out or else you def will be without while trying to track some down or ship it. I bought 3... haha

                  Wow - so I have been using the rapid clear toner for a few years now but had not yet tried the lotion. Good stuff! I use it almost every night before bed and it seems to complement the toner quite well. I have oily but sensitive skin and I have not experienced any dryness since I started using the lotion.
