      Comments about Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash:

      I bought this product for my daughter upon the recommendation from an employee. She liked it the first 2 days she used it, but then she developed what appears to be skin burn along with puffiness on her face. After reading reviews on other pages, we found out that several others have had similar reactions. Not happy at all!

                Comments about Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash:

                I was super excited to use this product as a friend of mine, with clear skin, uses this on daily. I used this at day and night time as part of my skin care routine, and the first 2 days seemed fine. I have NEVER had very much acne, just a few real small pimples here and there when I forgot to take off my makeup. Because of this, I was extremely alarmed when I had HORRIBLE, huge pimples on my cheeks and forehead show up on the third day. These pimples are so large and irritated it seriously looks like I have an acne problem. I used the face wash once more to see if it would help, but it only made it way worse. It's been 2 days since I've stoppes using the product, and the pimples are still red and irritated. Will NEVER buy this product again, as this acne wash only ended up giving me acne...

                      I have terrible sensitive, combination skin that breaks out all the time and I was struggling to find an acne cleanser that would work for me. Most of them caused my skin to feel tight and be very red and eventually peel. But this perfect! It is a perfect balance that never over dries my skin and never makes it oily. It gets rid of present and future pimples. My skin feels perfect after I use it! This is a great face wash for anyone with somewhat sensitive or combination skin who also struggles with acne. Amazing product!!
