Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent

Item #: 5022610 Size: 8.0 oz

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.

I probably won't but this product again.

Comments about Neutrogena Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent:

To use this product, you simply apply a small amount of it on your face. It is a liquid which I liked because it wasn't creamy like most face cleansers. I enjoyed the feeling of putting it on. However, it did not help at all with controlling oil, and it has slightly made my skin worse. It also makes it very red.

    This astringent helps me to know if my cleansing routine is effective or not by how much dirt is on the cotton ball.

    Comments about Neutrogena Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent:

    I have been using this product for almost a year now and my skin has transformed from oily, acne prone to healthy and clear. If it dries out your skin at first, don't throw it away. You would be giving up on such a great product! I've found that it works best for me if I put it on my face at night and when I wake up in the morning, I put moisturizer on before I do my makeup. The results are very quick and noticeable within days of use. I found it most affective when I popped a pimple and immediately dabbed some of the product on it. Most of the time, the pimple was barely noticeable or completely gone when I woke up.

      I've tried tons of expensive toners and I always go back to this one. I've used it for almost 10 years, and it's the only thing that makes a dent in my trouble skin. Great product and just happens to be 1/3 the price of some brands.

          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.

          This does its job, but I would be careful using it everyday. It is kind of harsh for everyday use.

              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!
