If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day. If going outside, apply sunscreen after using this product. If irritation or sensitivity develops, stop use of both products and ask a doctor.

          Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cream Cleanser:

          I used this product before using prescription Clindamycin and this product BURNED. It left red patches on my face and hurt so bad, I washed it off and iced my skin and I had red patches for several days. I know it wasn't the Clindamycin because I use benzoyl peroxide before I put the Clindamycin on. This product hurt really badly, I do not recommend.

          Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cream Cleanser:

          The performance of this product will rely heavily on your skin type. If you have normal/dry skin, you might want to stay clear of this (or use it every other day). The product contains a high amount of Benzoyl Peroxide (a strong acne medication) which REALLY dries out the skin after a few uses. If you have super oily skin, this will be your holy grail. Benzoyl Peroxide was the absolute best over the counter medication for my acne, personally. Salicylic acid was never strong enough for me. The ingredient in this face wash will dry out acne as well as kill the bacteria which causes it. I only recommend using this particular wash ONCE a day (it becomes drying very quickly) and use a heavy moisturizer with it.

          This is a cream cleanser, so dont expect any lather.

                Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cream Cleanser:

                After reading about this product as a recommendation for adult acne in addition to the Murad products I currently use. I thought I would give it a try and so far the two products combo has been working really well! I use this one in the evening and Murad products in the morning. I've been using this for less than a month and I'll continue to purchase and use as long as the results stay this good.

                          I have pretty bad hormonal acne, and I have literally tried every product in the drugstore for acne, and nothing has worked until this line of products. I tried proactive, differen, clean and clean, etc. This has a very high dosage of bp which is rare in drugstore. My skin can also sometimes be sensitive to some face washes but this was not for some reason. My face's redness has gone done and I have not seen any new pimple's. With this I use the neutrogena acne stress control toner(not be buying again though because for me it burns) but works okay. And the acne stubborn acne daily leave on mask, acne stubborn spot gel, and the simple moisturizer. My acne is not all gone but has definitely been looking better. At first kinda irritated my skin but it went away in 1 week. Definitely would buy again!!
