Gave me a rash and breakouts

      Comments about Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash:

      I used to use Neutrogena products all the time and I do not know what happened. This stuff caused my face to break out in a red, blotchy, itchy rash. It gave me so many little bumps and it took a week without any products to calm my skin back down. I never get breakouts (nothing more than a spot here or there) or have bad reactions to any products. Do not use this product if you have sensitive skin.

      I never had a lot of pimples or blemishes, but I get a break out every now an then because of season change and etc. After using this my face and neck is now covered in little pimples. I thought I had an allergic reaction. Never again!

          Comments about Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash:

          This product was not good on my skin, at first I was excited to be using it but then I realized it was the cause of making me break out especially with painful pimple. Turns out it was drying out my skin which was leading to this ... I also bought the toner that is suppose to complement it but I guess I need a more gentle cleanser :(

            Good product, kept my skin clear for about 3 years. The only problem is that it dries out my skin, will have to switch!

              Comments about Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash:

              Very irritating. I used this for years and wondered why I couldn't get rid of my acne. It was because of this. I told my sister and brother in law to stop using it, and their skin got better too. I now use Nuetrogena's gentle cleanser instead. My acne got so much better after I stopped using this, but I realized I could get rid of it completely by using a non-iritating, leave on salicylic acid (clinique's gel). This is the worst
