            Comments about Neutrogena Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent:

            I have oily and sensitive skin, and I break out any time I'm stressed out or about to get my period. I use this stiff at night because it is very strong, and it smells incredibly strong too. My skin tone has evened out and I haven't had a breakout since I started using this. It did dry my face out a bit, and the fingers I used to apply to cotton ball on my face also dried and cracked - so use at your own risk.

            • Clean-feeling
            • Doesn't dry out skin
            • Tightens pores

            Cons

            Best Uses

              Comments about Neutrogena Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent:

              I usually use this toner after washing my face, and I can actually see some of the leftover dirt on the cotton ball, even after washing. I'm glad the toner gets rid of a lot of that dirt, and I can confidently say that my skin has gotten a lot better. This is better for like wide areas of blackheads and small breakouts, but I wouldn't rely on this for any large zits.

                Love this product - have tried others but this is the golden goose of astringents. Now, that my Son's face is coming into "that age" he uses it too; his complexion is clear too!

                            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.

                                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.
