Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cream Cleanser

5.0 oz Item 2284510

Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cleanser made to clear stubborn breakouts. This maximum strength formula fights key signs of even stubborn acne with Benzoyl Peroxide, the #1 dermatologist recommended non-prescription acne medicine. Works to reveal clearer skin with continued use.
Wet face. Gently massage all over face, avoiding eye area. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three 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. If going outside, apply sunscreen after using this product. If irritation or sensitivity develops, stop use of both products and ask a doctor.
Active: Benzoyl Peroxide (10%)..Acne Medication. Inactive Ingredients: Water, Cetyl Alcohol, Petrolatum, Zinc, Lactate, Steareth-2, Glycerin, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Xanthan Gum, Fragrance, Benzyl Alcohol, Disodium EDTA. Laureth-4, BHT, Menthol.

Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cream Cleanser:

I have finally found a drugstore face wash that actually works for me. I am currently on my second bottle. It does dry my skin out a little bit, but it's nothing a moisturizer can't fix. The only reason I didn't give this product 5 stars is because it bleaches my towels when I dry off my face on them.

  • BURNS!!
  • Irritates Skin

Best Uses

  • Daily Use

Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cream Cleanser:

Personally, I bought it to help with a break out above my eyes. It took some time, and I like to use face wash after shaving but...oh...my...GOD! I try very hard to keep it out/away from my eyes but it somehow always gets to them while I'm rinsing it off and it burns and irritates them! It leaves me skin very soft but I dislike also that there's no foaming for lathering it in. I probably wouldn't recommend this.

    Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cream Cleanser:

    My best friend uses this product and it works very well for her so I thought I would give it a try. I'm sure it works fine for people with oily skin or maybe even normal-combination skin but if you have dry skin, DO NOT use this cleanser. It leaves my skin feeling so dry and with a little pain as well, even after moisturizing.

    It works almost immediately. Definitely only start off using once a day because as the package warned it can be really drying to the skin.

            Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cream Cleanser:

            I used this product before using prescription Clindamycin and this product BURNED. It left red patches on my face and hurt so bad, I washed it off and iced my skin and I had red patches for several days. I know it wasn't the Clindamycin because I use benzoyl peroxide before I put the Clindamycin on. This product hurt really badly, I do not recommend.

            Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cream Cleanser:

            The performance of this product will rely heavily on your skin type. If you have normal/dry skin, you might want to stay clear of this (or use it every other day). The product contains a high amount of Benzoyl Peroxide (a strong acne medication) which REALLY dries out the skin after a few uses. If you have super oily skin, this will be your holy grail. Benzoyl Peroxide was the absolute best over the counter medication for my acne, personally. Salicylic acid was never strong enough for me. The ingredient in this face wash will dry out acne as well as kill the bacteria which causes it. I only recommend using this particular wash ONCE a day (it becomes drying very quickly) and use a heavy moisturizer with it.

            This is a cream cleanser, so dont expect any lather.

                  Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cream Cleanser:

                  After reading about this product as a recommendation for adult acne in addition to the Murad products I currently use. I thought I would give it a try and so far the two products combo has been working really well! I use this one in the evening and Murad products in the morning. I've been using this for less than a month and I'll continue to purchase and use as long as the results stay this good.
