        I've been using this for a while now and it works really great. My friends always ask how my skin is so clear, and I tell them about this stuff. It gets rid of my acne
        really fast and makes my face feel really clean. I absolutely love it!

        harsh

              It worked immediately but very drying. Two hours later I look in the mirror and my forehead is an oily mess. Worse than before I used the product. My skin must've been trying to over produce oil to compensate. I literally wiped my forehead with my hand and you could see my hand was extremely shiny from the oil transfer. I do have oily/combo skin, which is why I bought the stuff, but I think it did TOO good of a job and stripped my face t-zone of all natural oils. Wouldn't buy it again. Plus the smell is awful.

                Comments about Neutrogena Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent:

                This stuff may seem like it eliminates oil at first (because it is completely drying out your skin), but you will soon find that your oil comes back with a vengeance to compensate for the extreme dryness that this causes. I don't think harsh astringents with alcohol are the way to combat oil. One weird thing that I noticed is that after a week or so of use, the fingers that made contact with the cotton ball soaked in this product started to peel! That's how you know this is wayy too harsh for your face.

                  Comments about Neutrogena Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent:

                  I recently started using this product after having not used a toner for about a year. I was using something alcohol-free previously, but stopped using it because it was a little pricey. While in Ulta, I decided to grab this one. The reviews were good for those with oily skin, so I figured I'd give it a try. It did not work for me. I have a very oily t-zone and break out on my chin sometimes. Well, this toner just emphasized that. I believe it was stripping my skin of it's natural oils, so it started producing sebum in heavier doses, and my t-zone is the oiliest it's ever been. My makeup was sliding off my face even with a primer. And my chin started to get dry & flaky, and making me break out even further. I stopped using this the last two days and my skin is definitely in recovery mode and already feels less oily. Looks like I need something alcohol-free as a toner. Very disappointing.

                    I bought this stuff a few months ago and I love it. I have oily skin and it works great for that. it also works really good if you feel your starting to get a pimple and you put it on, drys it up quick. Great stuff you should definitely try it.

                    Comments about Neutrogena Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent:

                    I have incredibly oily skin and it's very acne prone so I decided to get a toner and after debating for a while I decided to go with this one and it worked so well with my skin! My face started clearing up fast and I understand that alcohol can be drying but that's exactly what I needed! It keeps me matte longer than before. I definitely recommend this to people like me who look like disco balls after a couple hours!

                      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.
