Disappointed

By rtn

Comments about Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash:

The only thing this does is dry out your skin. It does nothing to prevent acne. It gave me so many dry spots such as my chin, near my mouth, on my nose, & below my eyebrows on top of my eyelids (if you get what I mean).

                Comments about Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash:

                One of my must have products. My skin is incredibly sensitive but I can use this product and I love it. Years ago, I couldn't use it because it was so harsh, but they must have changed something about the formula. It's the only product I have used since Neutrogena reformulated the Oil-Free Acne Wash Cream Cleanser. It's still a bit drying (that's expected since it's an acne wash) but nothing that a moisturizer can't make up for.

                      I use this product everyday, I started off using it once a day (which it works) and now i am about to use it twice a day to start using a new product for my face. I dont have severe acne but I do have blackheads and spots that Im trying to clear up. Overall great product and I hope it works well with my new prescription.

                      It's too thick, you can't get it through the pump! I've always used this for myself.

                      Not Happy

                      By teen with acne

                      from New York

                      Comments about Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash:

                      I bought this product on a Saturday, and stopped using it the following Thursday. I have very oily acne prone skin. So I saw some of the reviews on this product and I couldn't decide whether it was good to more than it was bad to other people who purchased this product. So I decided to try it for myself. When I say the first day I was so pleased my skin felt nice and relieved. Day 2 my skin was extremely dry so I started using a face moisturizer. I figured since I was using the moisturizer that it would it would sub in for the product leave my skin so dry. At the end of day 5 my skin dry even when I put on the moisturizer it wasn't providing good results anymore. My skin was so dry it seemed to have been peeling, and it still has been peeling. It's been one day since I stopped using this product and my skin is gaining its shine and starting to look healthy again, rather than nasty and dried out. I'm not saying that may happen to other people because not many people may have skin like I do, but for the people who do have very oily acne prone skin I would say stay away from this product.

                          I love this face wash, it keeps my acne under control as long as I use it twice daily and don't skip it. The only bad thing about it is that it's very drying, very VERY drying. The first time I used it I went to work that day and realized that there were patches of very dry skin all around my face. It's fine if you use a moisturizer that you like, I'm personally fond of Ponds, but it's a preference. As long as you use a moisturizer with it yo should be fine! I would absolutely recommend this product!
