Acne Defense Face Lotion

Item #: 2101434 Size: 1.7 oz

Rapid Clear Acne Defense Face Lotion contains maximum-strength acne-fighting medicine with botanical extracts to fight existing acne, help prevent future breakouts and leave skin feeling soft. This lightweight, daily lotion fights the multiple symptoms of acne. A powerful formula contains soothing natural botanicals to help prevent irritation, peeling or dryness. Powerful Salicylic Acid fights acne fast, penetrating deep into pores to unblock dirt and oil while sweeping away dead surface cells that can cause future breakouts.
Cleanse skin thoroughly before applying medication. Cover the entire effected area with a thin layer one to three times daily. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce the application to every other day.

Precautions: For external use only. Ask a doctor or pharmacist before use if you are using other topical acne medications at the same time or immediately following the use of the product. This may increase the dryness of the skin. If this occurs, only one medication should be used unless directed by a doctor. When using this product avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, flush thoroughly with water. Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed get medical help, or call Poison Control Center right away.
Active ingredients: 2% Salicylic Acid.

Other ingredients: Water, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Butylene Glycol, Dimethiconol Beeswax, Dimethicone, Cetyl Alcohol, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Capryloyl Glycine, Hydrogenated Palm Glycerides, Sarcosine, Cinnamomum Zelaynicum Bark Extract, Hexylene Glycol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Cedrus Atlantica Bark Extract, Bisibolol, Allantoin, Proptylene Glycol, Xanthan Gum, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl ACrylate Crosspolymer.

    Comments about Neutrogena Acne Defense Face Lotion:

    I have very oily, acne prone skin and this has done wonders for me. I use the Clean & Clear Continuous Control Cleanser, Neutragena Acne Stress Control toner, then this in the evenings and my skin has never looked better. Clear, soft, smells great... I believe it really does clear things up in 8 hours (overnight), as the bottle says. I do only use this one day because I use an SPF moisturizer during the day- but it's really not to strong to use morning and night. Love it.

        Best Defense for acne-prone skin!

        By jvsminv_xo

        from Raleigh, NC

        Comments about Neutrogena Acne Defense Face Lotion:

        I recently purchased this product and it works wonderfully! It really does the job within 8 hours or less to make any bumps go down right away and redness go away as well as clear up problematic areas quickly! Definitely repurchasing whenever the one I have gets done! :)

          Amazing

          Comments about Neutrogena Acne Defense Face Lotion:

          I am 26 years old and I suffer from acne my whole life. I have large pores, and I have the combination/ sensitive skin. I used this product, and it cleared my face and blemishes once I started using it. Also a great moisturizer before you put on makeup. I also use this product on my chest and back.

              Comments about Neutrogena Acne Defense Face Lotion:

              This lotion really keeps zits at bay for me; it doesn't keep them ALL away but I recently switched to another brand and my face feels like acne central. I'm ordering some more of Neutrogena's acne face lotion right away! The only con is that it has a weird smell, but it's nothing compared to how much better my face looks when I use it. I use it right after showering/washing my face before I put on my makeup.

              This absorbs very well into the skin and keeps my skin hydrated all day. I also noticed smoother, clearer skin after only a week of using it every day. This will be my go to lotion forever!
