I don't think it quite lives up to its "helps reduce pimple redness/swelling/size in 8 hours!" hype, but it DOES work quite well over the course of a day or two.
I recently switched over to Neutrogena from Proactive, so I tried to stick with products that had a similar percentage of salicylic acid or benzol peroxide in them. I've heard horror stories of "post-Proactive breakouts", and I've had a couple small pimples around my chin and mouth since switching brands, and I was honestly quite amazed at how fast it really did work.
Once a pimple started to emerge, the Rapid Clear gel halted the swelling in its tracks and never got any larger than a pinhead. Within 2-3 days, the pimple was almost completely gone.
One thing to note is that it generally works better on surface zits than on cystic acne. So if you have one of those big deep pimples that never quite come to the surface, then this product might not work quite as well.
My only complaint is that I wish the tube was a little larger, considering how expensive it is.

I had a newly formed zit that was beginning to emerge and so I bought this stuff from the store thinking I could prevent it from getting huge. Boy was I wrong. I ended up having to pop the zit because even after applying this stuff a few times throughout the day and before bed, it did nothing to the pimple. I figured maybe it was just that one pimple so since then I have tried it a few other times with the same ineffective results. Definitely not worth the money. You would be better off not putting anything on it to be honest.
I love this product. It's not great for spot treatment (I still use benzoyl peroxide for that) but for over all skin clarity and reducing whiteheads/blackheads this salicylic acid formula is perfect. I use it every night.
I find that this works on certain types of breakouts - razor burn being one of them. It's like a miracle. I'm telling you, a miracle. I get horrible red bumps when I shave the sensitive bikini area. I put this on and it is 90% better overnight, if not entirely gone. It also works on breakouts from sweating in sensitive skin areas when I work out. I am so thrilled. As for acne, as I said, it seems to work on certain types and not others. For those big, deep, hard lumps that I still get once a month at age 43 - not so much. Really the only thing it does for those is decrease the redness. But it doesn't make the pimple go away any faster. However, it does do a great job on clearing up those little pimples and whiteheads. I do wish it were less expensive. You don't get much for the price. But it is so worth it to me just for the razor burn. It's the only thing I have ever found that works.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I used Neutrogena's green tea less stress acne lotion prior to trying the Rapid Clear treatment. The Rapid Clear treatment seems to work much better, minimizing surface pimples in the course of a day. It has the same amount of salicylic acid, but is thicker and seems to stay on better without evaporating away. The only time it did not work for me was when I had a deeper pimple that took days to rise to the surface. But for routine prevention in trouble areas (I use it daily on the chin) it is the most effective product I've tried. It does not dry out my skin.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Cleanse skin thoroughly before applying medication. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer 1-3 times daily. Because excessive dryness of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to 2-3 times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to every other day.
