Comments about Neutrogena On the Spot Acne Treatment:

I apply the product onto my pimples after I rid my face of any makeup. I apply a thin layer of the ointment onto a pimple and it does shrink in size the next morning. However, with adult acne, it takes a little longer to shrink in size, understandably because the pimple is older and larger. I enjoy this cream, it really helps speed up the recovery process and has made my life just a little easier.

      Comments about Neutrogena On the Spot Acne Treatment:

      I use this after I wash my face and put my moisturizer on. I found that once I wake up the pimple just keeps spreading and getting redder. One night I tried without it and the pimple decreased on its own.

        Comments about Neutrogena On the Spot Acne Treatment:

        I use this at night after washing my face and moisturizing as needed. I have had a recent breakout of adult acne and this has helped subdue it and control it. I have sensitive skin so the low amount of Benzol Peroxide is perfect for me yet still effective. I don't believe that harsh treatments are the way to go so this is a great product for me. It hasn't bleached any fabrics like some products I've used in the past with higher percentages of Benzol Peroxide. I feel confident enough to use it in the day as needed without fear of bleaching my clothes.

          Comments about Neutrogena On the Spot Acne Treatment:

          While this product does dry out pimples, it left me with red spots where I had used it that almost looked worse than the pimple! I have mild acne that often appears on the apples of my cheeks and chin due to stress or my period. I purchased this product after hearing a friend of mine rave about it and decided to give it a try. During one of these breakouts, i applied this as a spot treatment onto a small cluster of zits on my cheek as well a spot on my forhead before going to bed. When I woke up in the morning, the pimples were definetly smaller and less inflamed, but i was left with awful red spots where the pimples had been as well as irritated and dry skin. Bottom line is, I would not use this product if your skin is sensitive and prone to dryness. I can see how this might work for some people but for me it only made my skin worse.

            I liked this a lot. If you use it overnight it works well but clears the skin up in about 2 days. It's more effective if you use it as you feel a breakout coming.

            Using this product to help prevent clogged pores. I use it at night; seems to reduce pore size.
            Have not used on acne.
            This product is white, not tinted and can't be used as a concealer as implied.

            Returned the next day

            By Kyla

            Comments about Neutrogena On the Spot Acne Treatment:

            I read so many good reviews about how good it works to treat acne so decided to purchase this. Used this the same night I bought it and woke up to a red swollen face! I literally had red spots on my face where i had acne. it was horrible! Returned it the same day showing them the rashed on my face. I was probably allergic to the ingredient it had in it but don't know which one since I use the same ingredient found in Clean n Clear spot treatment for acne too. Had no problems in returning it though which was good. So let me just give 2 stars for that.
