Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cream Cleanser

Item #: 2284510 Size: 5.0 oz

Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cleanser made to clear stubborn breakouts. This maximum strength formula fights key signs of even stubborn acne with Benzoyl Peroxide, the #1 dermatologist recommended non-prescription acne medicine. Works to reveal clearer skin with continued use.
Wet face. Gently massage all over face, avoiding eye area. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. 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.

Love/ Hate Relationship

By Guerita

from Portland, OR

Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cream Cleanser:

I love this product because it has cleared up my skin significantly well and that was impressive since I have tried a wide range of products and nothing has worked. This however dries out my skin so bad! I need to use a very good moisturizer or I get dry patches on my face that are itchy and uncomfortable.

    I love this product. Since I have a combination skin and my hormones tend to mess up my forehead and chest I was full of pimples all the time. I started using this and they disappear within just one week!!! I swear I'm not lying, it works like magic

        It has taken about 1 week to actually reduce any redness. It's not as rapid as other products.

          Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cream Cleanser:

          During my freshman year of college, my skin started breaking out- terribly. My diet was horrible, I was stressed out of my mind, and the products I had used in high school just weren't working anymore. So I decided to try this cleanser. Within the first day I immediately noticed a (positive) change. Now I don't use anything else.
          When I first bought the product, I used it three times a day (I had a lot of big, painful zits). Now that my skin has basically cleared up, I use it once in the morning and once at night. I still have some scarring, but nothing too terrible. The other day a friend thought I was wearing foundation when I wasn't. For my skin, this worked amazingly.

          It works, but doesn't help new acne from forming. It just clears up the current acne on my face.

              Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cream Cleanser:

              I have only been using this product for about a week and while we all want instant gratification (especially when you're face could be mistaken for a pepperoni pizza), nothing makes pimples go away overnight. My skin hasn't been the same since I had my daughter, it was flawless pre-pregnancy, and then, like miley cyrus, hormones came in like a wrecking ball, and it hasn't gone back to normal since. I was used to the every-now-and-then huge zit that would accompany my monthly flow, but not only am I dealing with at least 1 to 2 of those types of pimples every day but also all these little random pimples on my forehead and cheeks that I've never had before. Not even puberty was this hard on my skin. My normal cleanser and topical treatments have been rendered useless, so, given that this treatment states it is specifically for STUBBORN acne, I thought I'd give it a shot. Again, it's only been a week. I wash my face every morning with this and I can feel a tingly sensation which is nice. I do notice that the redness accompanying my pimples has significantly faded, acne scars from past-popped-pimples have also been fading, I notice a lot of my stubborn I'm-going-to-hide-under-your-skin-so-you-can't-kill-me pimples are surfacing so I can finally deal with them. And freshly popped pimples are reducing ever so slowly. Is my skin completely clear? No. But for a week of face washing there have been significant signs that this face wash is attempting miracles on my new mommy skin. I'm sure within a months time I'll be looking at much clearer skin. Also, I've never had an issue with pores, but it does seem to minimize them and give my skin a glowy refreshed look every day. My only concern with this product is that my skin can be a little melodramatic, like an angsty teenager, so sometimes I get a little extra oil production in the afternoons to compensate for the earlier cleanse (this could also be due to the dry winter air as well). It's not so serious that my mineral foundation can't keep at bay though.
