    Comments about Neutrogena Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent:

    I have been using this toner for almost a year but I have switched to the alcohol-free one. This toner removes makeup wonderfully, but it is just too harsh for my sensitive, acne-prone skin. It left me with a redness I couldn't shake and did nothing to control my oil.

    Not for the Sensitive!

      Comments about Neutrogena Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent:

      I used this intermittently for awhile, but in the last few weeks, I started using it more consistently at night because it does a great job of getting any excess oil and dirt off the face, which was the main reason I was using it (not so much for acne). However, shortly thereafter, I started breaking out in red, itchy bumps mostly on my cheekbones and the sides of my face and even stretching to my neck, along with dry patches of skin. I stopped using it again a couple days ago, and my skin already looks so much better. It's no longer as red and my skin tone is evening out again. So if you have even mildly sensitive skin, I do NOT recommend this product. I will not be going back to it.

            Comments about Neutrogena Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent:

            I used this toner for a few months and wasn't seeing any results. It dried out my skin a bit, but not to the point where it would flake. I decided to switch to Rapid Clear products, because I thought "stronger" meant "more effective." I was wrong. After a month of Rapid Clear products, my acne actually became worse and my enlarged pores became more visible, not to mention my skin became so dry, it would flake and no amount of moisturizer would soothe it. I'm switching back to this toner, because I'd rather have zero results than worse results.

            Comments about Neutrogena Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent:

            I have been using this product for about a week now and I am very surprised to be seeing results. Not only has it made all the little bumps on my face dissappear but it has also helped to even out my skin tone which I find to be amazing. I use this product after I have washed my makeup off to get all the excess dirt and makeup off completely which it does. Then I apply my daily moisturizer to restore the oils on my face. It does have a very strong scent though which I am not a fan of and also keep in mind since it is an astringent it will be much stronger on your skin, so if you have sensitive skin I may recommend their toner instead.

                Made My Skin Flaky

                By Argo

                from Pittsburgh, PA

                Comments about Neutrogena Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent:

                I have very oily skin, but it is also a little sensitive. I thought I'd give this a try but it didn't do anything except make my skin peel and flake as if it was sunburned. It didn't even remove much of the oil on my skin. It also caused a little lingering redness. Not a fan and I wouldn't recommend.

                Cleared my cystic acne

                Comments about Neutrogena Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent:

                Cleared up those deep, hard nodules under the skin. I have oily skin and suffered with cystic acne and bumps and this product changed my life. Quick almost overnight results. Saw results after first use! This stuff will disinfect and remove any oil and dirt or leftover makeup off of your face. I used it as perscribed. For a week i kept the face makeup off and applied it after my morning cleanse, once in the afternoon when i saw oil on my face, and then after my night time cleanse. I got a clarisonic for christmas and using that and this toner will just completely change my life. Feels good to have a clean bare face and be confident about it!! I feel so free. Try it out for yourself.
