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.

Precautions: For external use only. When using this product skin irritation and dryness is more likely to occur if you use another topical acne medication at the same time. If irritation occurs, only use one topical acne medication at a time. Do not use if you have very sensitive skin or are sensitive to benzoyl peroxide. When using this product avoid unnecessary sun exposure and use a sunscreen. Avoid contact with the eyes, lips and mouth. Avoid contact with hair or dyed fabrics, which may be bleached by this product. Skin irritation may occur, characterized by redness, burning, itching, peeling or possibly swelling. Irritation may be reduced by using the product less frequently or in a lower concentration. Stop use and ask a doctor if irritation becomes severe. Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away.

Great!!!

By Beckz

Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cream Cleanser:

I usually don't like cream cleansers because I feel like they don't clean well enough for me but this one left my skin feeling so clean but also a bit moisturized! I'm pleasantly surprised. My skin also looked and felt smoother and my bores seemed smaller, too. I believe the active ingredient kills bacteria and also exfoliates so that's probably why. It is a bit irritating after using it several times so I might just stick to using it once every other day.

Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cream Cleanser:

I have hormonal acne so I thought this would be a good fit for me. Broke me out horribly. Yes I know that it brings the krap to the surface but it changed my skin texture and made me break out even more. Gave this 3 months. Not for me

Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cream Cleanser:

I have bad acne patches and i wanted to try something that works. Im writing this after my first use. I put the cleanser on my face and started washing my face and shortly after i could start feeling a burning/tingling sensation on my cheeks so i tried to finish up quickly as i didnt know if this was a side effect or an allergic reaction. my face was still tingling for the rest of my shower and after i put some moisturizer on my face felt better. its VERY drying (guessing from the high amount of benzol peroxide) but a good thick moisturizer can fix that. hopefully this helps my acne!

    Works great, but it bleached my towels.

    By Taydin

    from Texas

    Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cream Cleanser:

    Read the warnings carefully. I didn't and missed the part where it says it might discolored dyed fabrics. It bleached my light blue towels. It works really well, but I should have read all the warnings before purchasing.

        Use only when acne breakout is really bad

        Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cream Cleanser:

        Alright, let's get one good thing about this out of the way. It does do it job of helping clear out acne, maybe a little too well in my opinion. It will help reduce the appearance and minimizes the appearance of acne. However, the major drawback I will say about this produce is that it is really drying. Possibly the most drying acne-fighting cleanser I've ever used. I consider myself an oily acne-prone gal, so I can't imagine how this would wreck those with combo and dry skin (which I would suggest to those with either to stay away from this product, get something more gentle). If this also gets anywhere near your eyes, it will hurt like heck. If you're having a horrible breakout around your jaw/chin area, this could work for you, but I wouldn't use this product on my cheeks, nose or forehead (nowhere near my eyes). I would advise caution when using this product and follow up with a light moisturizer.

        Clean clean clean

        By Courtneyyyjo

        from Derby, KS

        Comments about Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cream Cleanser:

        This is the cleanest my face has ever felt. It is a little drying around my forehead and nose, but nothing a moisturizer can't fix I'm sure. While this is only my first use (I will update after a couple weeks) I am already convinced this will heal any acne spots I have. I could feel it kind of tingling and burning (not uncomfortable or painful) my acne patches. It also surprisingly made my face softer than other cleansers.

        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.
