Neutrogena

Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Daily Leave-on Mask

1.7 oz Item 2298526

Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Daily Leave-on Mask treats & controls acne, vanishes into skin. The gel formula vanishes instantly into skin, allowing acne medicine to absorb deep down, killing acne-causing bacteria, and it keeps working all day to fight both your current breakouts and the acne forming under the surface of your skin. When used daily, this dermatologist-recommended approach will help keep breakouts away, so you can control your stubborn acne, all without over-drying skin.
Cleanse the skin throroughly before applying this product. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily. Because excessive drying of skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed as directed by a doctor. If bothersome dryness or peeling occus, 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.
Benzoyl Peroxide (2.5%), Water, Carbomer Homopolymer type B, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium Hydroxide, Chlorphenesin, Disodium EDTA, Laureth-4, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose

        Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Daily Leave-on Mask:

        I got this as a sample and usually have some very mild hormone related acne on my chin. Thought I would give this a whirl because Neutrogena is a name that I have grown to trust over the years. Big mistake. I applied this once and the next day my face was covered in hundreds and hundreds of tiny little bumps everywhere this was applied. Never in my life have I reacted to a product in this manner, I don't even know how to treat it and might need to make a run to my dermatologist. I don't have sensitive skin, so in general, if you are thinking about using this, do a patch test before committing.

          Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Daily Leave-on Mask:

          After struggling with a case of hormonal/cystic acne for about a year from the age of 16-17, I decided it was time to fix whatever had made my skin go crazy. I went on the birth control pill in December of 2016 which did show about a 70% decrease in the acne lesions, but there were a few spots that the birth control couldn't even touch. After doing my homework online, I decided I ought to invest in a topical product that doesn't dry out my skin. This cream vanishes into your skin without drying or irritation and it has cleared the 30% of acne that would just not go away within 2 months. I know if you're anything like me, you're reading these reviews hoping every last one of them will describe a miracle one-week cure, but unfortunately that is not how this "mask" works. Benzoyl Peroxide works with your skin to essentially sterilize it. I apply this straight after the shower as I feel that is when my skin is most receptive, wait 10 minutes, and apply my makeup. I love this product because it absolutely can sit under foundation and primer and it is completely undetectable. I feel like it treats my skin all day long, so instead of taking my makeup off and having new pimples, makeup wipes now reveal shiny, healthy skin. While my battle with acne was relatively short, it was an emotional roller coaster. I'm so glad I've found a product that meets my needs just right. When I do break out as a result of overdosing on sugar, I just pop a "spot treatment" sized dollop of this on the pimple. Even a thick layer absorbs into my skin. I don't foresee myself stopping the use of this mask anytime soon. It has done wonders over time.

          Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Daily Leave-on Mask:

          As someone with a slight sensitivity to benzoyl peroxide, I have very mixed feelings about this product, as to be expected. Did it get rid of my acne? YES, and pretty much overnight. Did it burn my skin? Yes....but I knew it would do that, so it's not a bad review on the product....

          I found that this product was a lot more gentle than other neutragena benzoyl peroxide creams, so I'm using it for a second time. It did make my skin itchy and red, but not to the point where it was embarrassing and uncomfortable.

          If you ARE sensitive to benzoyl peroxide, I recommend actually leaving it on for an hour or so, and washing it off with a cleanser. It will irritate slightly, but it really does clear up your skin by the next day. As someone who has tried literally every acne cream on the market, I have to say that this works, so the pros outweigh the cons for me. I just wish neutragena would create a non-benzoyl peroxide product that actually works......so 4/5 stars for this one.

            Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Daily Leave-on Mask:

            I'd like to start by saying that if you're reading reviews and you've noticed that the low rating are writing that they woke up with a severe reaction - don't be deterred. It's amazing how ignorance begets confidence. It states specifically that you should not use the product if you're allergic or sensitive to the ingredients. Maybe this is how you found out that you're allergic/sensitive to them however it does not give you the right to bash a product simply because your skin doesn't tolerate it. Shame on you!

            That being said, I have used EVERY recommended brand name/ expensive product you can think of. I have combination skin in the sense that the wrong products quickly throw off the balance. My skin can be sensitive at times as well. I first started using this line of products years ago at the beginning of my skin care journey when an ULTA esthetician recommended the 3 Combo kit for acne after I had gone in for my first ever facial. I started using the kit and the results were astounding. The only products that have since been effective for my acne. I quickly noticed that I was running out of the oil control product much faster than the cleanser and moisturizer so I recently discovered that this mask had the same active ingredient and have been purchasing it separately to supplement my routine.

            It has a gel like texture and it absorbs into your immediately, leaving it feeling clean and plump, no residue whatsoever. I will say that over the years I've had to decrease the frequency in which I use the other products because twice a day was beginning to dry my skin out and leave me sensitive by my nostrils. But that's as bad as it has ever gotten. Worst case scenario you may have to tweak the frequency of use.

            I recommend this to anyone with acne prone / oily skin, you will see results within a day or so.

              Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Daily Leave-on Mask:

              I have seen some negative reviews on this but just know that everyones skin is different and products work differently on other people. I have spent soooo much money on high-end products for my acne. From Dermalogica, Origins, Tatcha, Korres, Sunday Riley, etc. I was not just over spending but I was still breaking out. I decided to try this mask just because it is so much cheaper and this has semi-good reviews. I wash my face at night, then I tone, use a serum, and put a light layer on top every night before I go to sleep. My skin has improved soooooooo much. I have very oily, sensitive, and acne-prone skin. I was feeling so down this past year due to my breakouts but now I can say I am feeling a lot happier, confident, and thankful that my skin has improved so much. It's definitely worth a try. I use this just once a day (at night) and have not had any dryness happening. :)

                  Let me start by mentioning I'm someone who has normal skin. I tried this when I ran out of
                  physical exfoliant to save a few bucks (big mistake).
                  When I woke up the AM after trying this subpar product, I looked in the mirror to
                  see a dermatitis-esque reaction with red, itchy milia like bumps
                  everywhere I applied this stuff. My nose, chin, forehead all had
                  a horrible reaction. It was so intense I thought I was going to require a dermatologist visit for treatment.
                  This was the only chance in my skincare routine so I know Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Daily Leave-On Mask is to blame.
                  I tried this a week ago & my skin is still recovering.
                  My advice is to stay away from this garbage

                  After just using this product once it had burned my skin. I don't usually have sensitive skin but this product left my face red, and slightly swollen and itchy in the spots that I had applied it. On the back it does say that that is a possible reaction but I definitely did not think that that would happen to me because I have never experienced this with an acne product before. I wish I could say that this worked for me but unfortunately it did not ):
