I bought this specifically for my blackheads and it did absolutely nothing for them. Used this for 3 months straight every night and it left my nose peeling and flaky but the blackheads remained. I don't think I'm ever getting rid of those things :(

I had high hopes for this product, but sadly those hopes weren't met.
-calms redness
-easy to spread
-considerable price for quantity
-smells fresh
-doesn't dry out skin

-didn't treat acne
- cause a couple of flare ups* possible from the perfume
-might smell fresh, but sometimes may be nauseating
-promises to 1)treat and heal acne 2)prevent acne 3)hydrate and soften, only one promise was true, 3) hydrate( doesn't really soften)

overall: feels great, does nothing may cause a couple of pimples* like all acne treatments it gets worse before it gets better, but for me this one just kept on making me worse.

This is the only thing that has ever worked to get the little bumps from my forehead to go away. I experience way less breakouts when i use this on a regular basis. I can wear it under make up as long as i put a thin layer on. It doesnt dry out my skin. I use a cetaphil gentle skin cleanser with it. There is nothing i have found that is better than this. It isnt too harsh, and definitely get the job done.

I've been using this for years with the rest of the line. Makes my skin feel really soft. I use it as part of my daily skin care routine. It feels great on the skin, and it great for spot treatment of acne as well. I don't know it this is truly discontinued, because I recently repurchased it, but if it is I will be extremely disappointed.

Amazing! This product does what it says. I had horrible red congested bumps all over my face on Sunday. After applying twice a day, my face had cleared up completely by Tuesday! I wear it underneath my make up and it does not dry out my face. It's also very lightweight and you can't beat the price! I'm very impressed and highly recommend this product.

This is a great product for my sensitive combo skin. I tend to breakout on my chin area. This definitely helps and doesn't dry my skin out like other treatments. However it isn't particularly moisturizing. If you have dry skin you will need another moisturizer on top of this. I also use the Neutrogena astringent from this same line and love it.

ok really? lucky for all u guys that it worked for. it dried my skin out and made it worse. made clusters of breakouts even bigger when i would apply this. same thing happened with my best friend wjmalique. she has a vid called acne products favorites and fails and this was def a fail. i dont think this was hydrating in any way nor gentle.. maybe i have sensitive skin but kudos to all u guys that it worked for :)

I loved this product and have used it for 6 consecutive years without ever switching to a different bha. Although that and many other reviews speak volumes Neutrogena has decided to discontinue its best product. This is something I can't imagine living without (beauty wise) disappointment is an understatement. I will be purchasing samples of Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% bha gel and will update as to whether it is comparable in terms of texture and effectiveness. P.S. Neutrogena's new All-in-1 acne treatment is not a comparable product to the 3-in-1 and is not worth having. Update: Paula's Choice 2% bha gel has noticeably different texture than this product and left a shiny finish on my skin,it was also slightly drying compared to the hydrating Neutrogena. That being said Paula's Choice CLEAR anti-redness exfoliating solution is perfect and non-drying, I have absolutely no blackheads thanks to it. It is far and away a more effective product than the Neutrogena 3-in-1.

I really like this acne treatment line! I have been using it on and off for years and it always works great on my combination skin. I only get acne once a month bc of hormones or when I am stressed and this always helps a lot. I just bought some at Nordstrom Rack (I've been buying it there for years) and from what I researched online it doesn't look like it's discontinued. Hoping not!
