This failed to control my acne. I haven't had luck with Neutrogena products for the past couple of years and this was better than some of their other stuff for me, but I still broke out. Plus my forhead got really oily, which is not unusual but some products control it better than others.

I've had clogged pores for a very long time. Since I started using this product though, my skin has really cleared up. I've used it for almost a week and already my skin looks a lot better than it has looked in ages. Definitely reccomend this product!

I was at Target and I actually wanted to buy the Rapid Clear Acne Eliminating Gel for spot treating my occasional acne (I just ran out). At first I thought that this was the replacement but decided to purchase it anyway. My reasoning was that since the Gel didn't break me out, the Rapid line shouldn't either (I have fairly sensitive skin so I don't like to experiment), AND it was HUGE! It was more than double the size of the Gel so if this worked for me, it would be a steal! Anyway, it was only $6.99 US so it wasn't that hard on my wallet.
When I bought the Defense, I was going through a good skin period where my face was very clear with only acne scars slowly fading. I had a one or two small, hidden whiteheads along my hair line, so I dotted the Defense on them. The smell was nice - like cucumbers? - and the consistency was very watery. That worried me a bit since when I spot treat, the stuff I used was always a little thicker. The next day they were gone so I thought I had a great product!
Then I had a small white head on my forehead and one on my left cheek, so again, I spot treated them. At first it seemed like it got rid of them, but then my forehead got a few more little bumps. No big deal, I widened the range of the Defense on my forehead. THEN the spot on my cheek become VERY dry (and I have oily skin!) and a rough,flaky, red patch developed. My forehead broke out into lots of tiny bumps. Now that I've stopped using it, those areas are beginning to clear up. I'm very certain it was because of this product, because the rest of my face is fine. =( Oh well...
The reasons I gave it 3 lippies are because it's a good deal, it smelled nice, and it DID work for a little while. I don't know what was in it that made me react this way, but I know it's not because I'm allergic to the saylic acid. I've read that the reviewers use it as a sort of primer and I think the consistancy would work well as one. It sinks quickly into the skin and leaves a soft finish. If it doesn't break you out, I'd highly recommend you try this. Since it broke me out, I returned it.

i really liked this product it made my face feal smooth. But like any other acne clearing product u cant just put it on and expect it to work. U still have 2 wash ur face so it can improve ur face but overall i loved it. I would buy it again becuse wahen i run ot im gonna need more so i would not say that it is a miracle worker because we all know that nothing is that great but yes it does work. im not gonna say that it doesnt dry ur face out because it doese but if it clears up ur acne but dries out ur face, USE LOTION

This is the product that has replaced Clear Pore Treatment????? Sad, sad, sad....I have been using it for over a month and don't see any real imporvement. The Clear Pore Treatment was much better. It goes on smooth and it dries pretty quickly and leaves a matte finish. As far as the acne clearing claims, they are false!

Didn't work, actually caused MORE breakouts. When used on pimples that are coming out, it actually making them turn cystic, huge and painful. I guess some people are allergic to the salicylic acid. What's annoying, I can't get a refund since I lost my receipt!! :(

I may be jumping the gun a little on this review since I've had it under a week, but so far I LOVE this lotion. I thought that the idea of an acne fighting LOTION was a bit of an oxymoron, but this really doesn't dry me out, and my face feels softer and looks smoother already. I actually enjoy the smell and love knowing that it's working hard all day long and when I sleep at night.

I have combo/oily skin and love this face lotion! I bought it to use it as a night treatment for my problem areas and does a wonderful job. I usually don't pay attention to those claims that say 'results after 8 hrs' and so, beacause I know that's made up by companies for marketing purposes, however this stuff really works. After a few days I can see my skin clearer and softer. It absorbs quickly into the skin and is really lightweight and non-greasy. At night I use it under my favorite moisturizer --for those with drier skin please be sure to use one, because it can be a little drying for you-- and sometimes I apply it for daytime just on certain spots followed by my sunscreen --this is very important!--, which is Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 55. I'm about to finish my first tube and will keep purchasing, for sure! :)
Active ingredient: Salycilic Acid 2% --great BHA product!

This lotion really does help combat breakouts, however I do not recommend it for the winter. It can dry out your skin, then you're left with breakouts AND scaly skin! Not a good combination. If you use it during the winter, I suggest putting a lotion, like Cetaphil, over it for extra moisture. I wish this product had an sunscreen. I feel like I can't use it under my makeup for that reason. I want my face to be clear, but I don't want the sun's rays to give me pre-mature aging! So, to really wrap it up, I think this is a good lotion for breakouts, but it needs sunscreen in it in order to really be the perfect lotion for the daytime.

Can clear up skin but over drying can happen, I think I may have used to much because now my eyelids are sensitive. I never put any around my eyes but I think I may have an allergic reaction to this stuff. This is the stuff that is bothering my eyes. I tied it again and it made my yes swell up!!!

I meant to buy Rapid Clear Acne Eliminating Gel, but accidentally bought the Rapid Clear Acne Defense Face Lotion. I couldn't return it because I had already opened it. It did help, but it definitely did not clear up acne in 8 hours as it claimed.

just to remind you i'm just reviewing how this product worked for me. it might not does the same to everybody. you need to try out stuffs to see what's working for your skin. :) back to the product. i'm happy with my purchase. I used this at night and in the morning my skin seemed to improve, with less blackheads, skin appears more radiant. the tube is pretty too.

This was very light for my already oily skin and with the Salcylic acid it really helped with my breakouts!
Most acne cleansers have Salcylic acid, but that is then removed with water, so I'm loving the idea of having salcylic acid in my moisturizer. This stuff is amazing. I no longer need a separate spot treatments for my breakouts. Not to mention this was perfect for the summer because it absorbed quickly, leaving my skin feeling clean and fresh.

I absolutly love this stuff. I use it both morning and night. It doesnt leave your skin feeling greasy. I wasn't very pleased with the smell at first but I got used to it. I've been using this for almost a month and my skin is almost completely clear! I highly recommend this product.

This is a two for the price of one review.
I began using this product, along with the Neutrogena Oil-Free 60-sec. Mask Scrub during a tropical vacation that was hell on my oily, sensitive skin. Between the two of them, they cleared me up with no irritation.
I liked both products so much that I gave a half-tube/jar of each to my very best friend, who has suffered from severe acne for years. She had tried everything, from the very expensive to witch doctor cures, lol. After using both of these products for a week, her skin had begun to improve. After a month, her skin is so clear that she no longer needs foundation.
I would highly recommend using both these products to anyone who suffers from severe acne, after seeing what a difference they have made in my VBF's skin.

This review is for Rapid Clear Acne Defense lotion with 2% Salicylic Acid. This is my HG! I am on my 4th tube. The packaging is pretty nice, I like the orange and silver, and it stands up by itself. Also, the squeeze tube is hygienic. It doesn't break me out, and while I don't think it kills pimples, it does help prevent them. Also is very light and non-oily.

this is for the lotion in the old (orange) packaging. i decided to try this out based on reviews here, and used it for about 2 months. it's a bit expensive, but i liked how it wasn't drying at all and it was cosmetically nice (felt nice on skin and had a pretty scent). however, this did very little to actually help my acne. i had lots of hormonal cysts, whiteheads, and clogged pores. the product did not seem to affect any of them. in addition, i also suspect that some breakouts were caused by this product (maybe from the silicone?). glad this works for other people, but i would not buy this again.

this is one of the best productst i have used for my acne. i love it. however a while back they changed their packaging and they also changed the product to some degree and it doesnt work as well as the original one that came out in 2004-but i will still continue buying it becomes it lessens my breakouts,works well as a moisturizer, helps my make up to go on smooth, and keeps my oily skin matte through out the day. it is very hard to find for some reason-i called neutrogena and it has not been discontinued so im not sure why a lot of stores dont carry it anymore but you can order it from the neutrogena website or check your local wal-mart.
update- i discontinued this. just doesnt work as well as the original one that came out in 2004. i started getting zits in unusual places like on my nose and between my eyes.

This review is for Rapid Clear Acne Defense lotion with 2% Salicylic Acid. Let me just say... it works! It unclogged my pores!! I use this once a day on my clogged area (t-zone) in the morning before moisturizer or sunscreen. Just give it a few weeks to work. I've been using it for 3+ months now. I've tried Paula's Choice BHA products, but this neutrogena lotion works much better for me!
