            Comments about Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash:

            I got the product because one of the ladies who I get facials from said that it was a good product... it's not. I used and for the first couple of days it was alright, then i woke up with little tiny bumps all over my face and a huge rash. My skin is 95% clear all the time and I've never gotten these bump on my face in my whole nice. My smooth, clear, nice skin has been damaged because of this product and now I have to get it back. I'm disappointed.

                This face wash felt fine for the first week. After the first week, my chin began feeling really irritated and felt raw. That night, I washed my face and the rest of my face became irritated, so I realized that it was my new face wash. The next morning, my whole face was full of bumps and had a lot of texture to the touch, and was even a little swollen. Never buying this again!!!

                Comments about Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash:

                Always coming back to this face wash. I'm a long time sufferer of hormonal acne breakouts and this product gets into the pores and does its magic in reasonable time (I see improvements within two weeks). One thing that people don't realize is that the skin will purge upon using face washes with salicylic acid especially a 2% grade. I highly recommend that you moisturize, moisturize and moisturize while using strong face washes like this one that gets the job done. If it's too irritating I suggest using it only in the morning and in the evening using a gentler face wash that foams but has no fragrance and no acne fighting ingredients. One that I enjoy is the Cerave Foaming Face Wash. it's very gentle and removes the day's grime.

                    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!
