Comments about Neutrogena On the Spot Acne Treatment:

Most topical acne treatments dry my skin out to the point that I can't continue using them. This product CAN be drying, if I am not careful wear I apply it and how much I apply it. But if I am careful, then the dryness/tightness/itchiness isn't a problem. What I love about it is the consistency. It's very creamy and spreads pretty well. I have been applying it along my jawline up to my temples because that's where I break out and I can't say that it is preventing pimples from popping up; however, it does seem like it makes them shrink pretty quickly. I am going to keep using this until it is is gone to see if it helps prevent pimples from popping up after more long term use. If not, then I may continue to buy as just a spot treatment and try something else that might help prevent the pimples from popping up in the first place. It's just hard to find anything that for my adult skin that doesn't get terribly irritated, so I hope this works out.

Comments about Neutrogena On the Spot Acne Treatment:

I bought the product, because even in college, I get pimples here and there. They're inconvenient, so I thought I'd try a pimple cream. I've always heard good things from Neutrogena (and this product wasn't super expensive), but this product just didn't work on me. I would put it on and it'd dry immediately. In the morning, the pimple would be the exact same shape and size. It was definitely a waste of my money. :( And I'm already broke enough as a college student!

    Comments about Neutrogena On the Spot Acne Treatment:

    I had the Murad acne spot fast fix (3.5%) but they stopped making it recently so I needed to find something similar. I tried this since it had good reviews, and yes, it works as well, or even slightly better than the Murad one. It has no scent, is easy to apply, and does not dry/irritate my skin like the Murad one did.

        This product works well with the fight against acne. When I see a pimple start to form or feel them coming through,I use this and it helps to keep them small and my face acne free.

          Comments about Neutrogena On the Spot Acne Treatment:

          Faded my existing acne scars in about 2 weeks. The best thing about this product was that it prevented new zits from popping up. This product took a long time (5-7 days) to dry out my pimples and then left behind flat red scars. I wasn't picking at those pimples either.

          It's easy to use and makes it look like ur pimple is gone but once u take off the cream it's still red. I've been using it for about 5 days as directed and there's no results apart from the normal passing of a pimple
