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:

Didn't notice this product giving me a significant reduction in breakouts, but I didn't break out more using this product. I would apply on pimples and it wouldn't go away using this product. Product contains 1% salicylic acid which is supposed to prevent blackheads/clogged pores.

Pros: moisturizing and didn't dry my skin out. prevented more breakouts perhaps? didn't break me out more. affordable and easy to use dispense pump as it stands upside down.

Cons: didn't reduce my existing acne/breakouts. didn't do anything for blackheads/clogged pores.

My skin type: combination/oily. Break out with a new pimple everyday, blackheads/clogged pores on t-zone, but I do not have major breakouts and skin is pretty clear. Occasional pustule/cyst.

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

    I have not seen a difference after using this product for a few weeks now. It says to use it 3 times per day but I use it about twice - in the morning and when I go to bed but it has not reduced any of the very mild acne that I have. It is to prevent new breakouts too - that has not worked.

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

    This lotion works great for me. Since I added it to my routine, I've noticed my redness has gone down and my acne is definitely more under control. The only downside is that it dries out my skin but not to the extreme. It just ends up feeling tight. My cetaphil lotion easily takes care of it.

    My routine:
    -Phisoderm gel cleanser (I use a facial brush)
    -Thayers Rosewater toner
    -Neutrogena Rapid Clear Acne Defense lotion
    -Cetaphil lotion

      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...
