Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent

Item #: 5022610

One of the best ways to clear current acne -- and prevent it in the future -- is to properly clean your pores. Neutrogena's astringent not only removes the breakout-causing dirt, oil, and makeup that's trapped deep in your pores, it also cleans the surface of your skin completely. Remove excess surface oil and treat any current blemishes with the maximum-strength, acne-fighting formula -- leaving your skin healthy, moist, and blemish-free.
Cleanse the skin thoroughly before application. Moisten a cotton ball and apply to your face in a gentle stroking motion. Do not rinse. The cool sensation tells you it's working. Use 1 to 3 times daily. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to 2 to 3 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.

Precautions: For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, immediately flush with water. Using other topical acne medications at the same time or immediately following the use of this product may increase dryness or irritation of the skin. If this occurs, only one medication should be used unless directed by a physician. Keep this and all drugs out of reach of children. In case of accidental ingestion, seek professional assistance or contact a Poison Control Center immediately.
Active Ingredient: Salicylic Acid. Other Ingredients: SD Alcohol 40, Purified Water, Witch Hazel, Butylene Glycol, Glycereth-7, Aloe Barbadensis Extract, Matricaria Extract, Methyl Gluceth-20, Benzophenone-4, FD&C Yellow No. 5, FD&C Blue No. 1, Propylene Glycol, Fragrance.

    Comments about Neutrogena Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent:

    This is what I've been waiting for and looking for! I'd been looking for an astringent that worked but that wasn't so "alcohol-ly". Most astringents are too harsh and toners are fine for balancing your pH levels after a facial or something like that but they aren't any good for deep cleansing your skin, so this astringent has made me very happy.

        Comments about Neutrogena Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent:

        I use this after washing my face in the morning before applying makeup and at night before I got to bed. Also is great after a shower where it can really get into your pores. I had a major breakout and the acne would not go away for a couple months, the pimples just kept coming back. With one use I could tell the difference. It dried out the acne and flattened the bumps and by the third day of using my acne was reduced to tiny marks. Now I am just using it to keep my face smooth, acne free, and clean while I wait for my acne scars to decrease. Bonus it smells amazing!

              I originally bought this item for my teenage son.Genetics have caused him to have oily skin just like his mom.I saw how smooth and healthy his skin looked after the first use. So I decided to try it. And it WORKS. My oily skin was reduced and my pores were minimized! It actually improved my skin so much that I stopped wearing a lot of makeup.I don't usually write testimonials, but this product REALLY WORKS!

              Comments about Neutrogena Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent:

              I've used this product for years as my night time facial cleaner. Pour some on a cotton ball and swipe all over face. Witch Hazel is a main ingredient which is natural and effective. I've recommended this product to many people, it's effective and affodable, can't beat that. I follow it w/a facial moisturizer and the result has been soft clear skin. Will continue to use.
