    Comments about Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash:

    I've been using this product for about 2 months now with the Mario Badescu rose spray and the Clinique All Over Clearing Treatement and I've noticed a drastic improvement in my skin. I generally have one large break out once a month but do get spots every so often and this has really helped to control those breakouts. My only complaint is that it's very drying if you don't moisturize well and can cause a burning sensation/be slightly irritating if you have a cut or open wound on your skin. But this sensation usually wears off the moment your wash off the gel.

    Love it, on one condition

    By Ari

    Comments about Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash:

    The first thing I will say is this will make your skin DRY AS SAND. Completely dries out skin, But I mix this with my deep charcoal face wash and it creates the perfect face wash. My skin is clear and i'm so happy! Just make sure to use a good, oil free moisturizer

          Terrible

          By Red

          from Washington

          Comments about Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash:

          I remembered using this product a few years ago so when my skin got full of acne I tried to give this a go again. I wish I hadn't. After using it 4 times my face became severely irritated and red and puffed up. I would not recommend it to anyone

          DO NOT PURCHASE.

          By Steph

          from Georgia

          Comments about Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash:

          I thankfully have good skin. Minimal breakouts and it stays moisturized. I started having a few bigger zits recently as my normal workouts have changed and I was looking to fight it. This stuff gave both me and my boyfriend what can only be described as chemical burns on our chin, jawline, and the general lower half of our faces. It is taking days for my skin to recover and there are tiny zits popping up between flakes of already painful skin. Never purchasing again and will be throwing out. Waste of money and I'm scared my face will be scarred.

          Fixed my over exfoliated skin

          By Cam

          from Texas

          Comments about Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash:

          I have really oily skin, so I was always told to exfoliate regularly. As I got older, the skin around my cheeks and forehead got dryer but my skin care regimen stayed the same. I ended up over exfoliating and ruining my complexion. I tried moisturizing face wash but that made my skin greasy and made me break out. This product SAVED my skin. I bought it on a whim, not expecting anything great, and it turned out to be my #1 skin care product. It makes my skin soft but not greasy, but I still feel clean after using it (unlock some face washes that could hardly took my makeup off). I recommend for anyone with combination skin. It checks off all the boxes for me.
