I really like this product. It doesn't work magic on my moderate acne but it definitely makes a difference when nothing else does. People who say it broke them out have probably never used an SA is a keratolytic...its going to bring stuff to the surface if u haven't been using an SA, AHA, Retinol, or Tretinoin product regularly. Most acne products are like this and require PATIENCE. This product became hard to find for a bit but now I'm seeing it again in stores. I use it along w the Treatment (astringent) pads.

Let me first say- I have combination skin. But kind of- to the extreme.
My forehead is EXTREMELY oily...when people say so-and-so is drying, it is usually fantastic for me.
My cheeks- are normal/dry.

I have acne prone skin, and when I saw good reviews, I went out to buy it.
...So I tried it. It feels very smooth and has a decent scent....I put it on my skin and it feels a tad bit sticky however it is lightweight...until 30 minutes afterwards, my skin is just as oily as it would have been without the product!

I just don't like the product and if you have just a tad bit oily skin or normal skin, this would be perfect.

FYI, this won't work if you have very oily skin because this is silicone in it, and this won't do anything if you have really active oil glands.

I really do NOT like neutrogena products! They are to harsh and full of chemicals and break me out worse then before I use them! Do not waste you're money on this crap instead try Clearasil overnight lotion, full of chemicals but works like a charm!

I love this product! I use it as my daily moisturizer because I feel like it acts as a barrier to protect my skin from makeup that would normally make me breakout. This definitely keeps my acne at bay and it doesn't make my skin oily or dry out, its the perfect combination. Its kindof pricey for how small the bottle is and for being drugstore, I think I paid like $8 but its soo worth it and I only need to use a little bit. I love this and I will definitely buy again!!!

i love this product! ive tried EVERYTHING and i always end up going to the store and picking this up. it helps with acne, not a miracle worker but definitely improves the overall condition of my moderate acne. also what i love is that it is actually moisturizing..most acne "lotions" make my face drier but this one actually keeps flakes away. however my skin is so dehydrated from all the prescriptive topicals ive used so i use this in the morning followed by olay complete for sensitive skin for added moisture and sun protection. this is a great product and a staple in my beauty routine :)

I really like this BHA lotion. I don't use it on my face because it's a little too heavy, but it works GREAT on my chest and back when I get breakouts.

I have oily acne prone skin. This stuff is excellent at drying up zits so I decided to apply all over my face and a week later: DRY. Overly flaky and breaking me out, yet still oily, heh. So this is good for on-the-spot treatment but as my daily lotion/acne prevention I'll look elsewhere.

This works pretty great with diminishing breakouts. I actually put this on overnight and my face looks a lot better in the morning. I like it. It works a lot better than most over the counter treatments. Its got a nice smell and it goes on smooth and soft. It will dry out your skin if you don't moisturize though! Its the only thing I use for breakouts and it works!

just recently bought this.I normally use Aveeno clear complexion moisturizer but my face stopped reacting to it i suppose and i was breaking out like crazy. I had heard good things about this but found it a little difficult to find. I tried target, walmart, publix, walgreens, and cv. The only place I was able to locate it was at a chain of drug stores specific to Miami where I live called Navarro. Not exactly sure what this might mean but since I've been using it my face has cleared up pretty much the instant I started using it. I use it at night before going to bed and what I really love is that it doesn't make my face feel greasy at all. I would definitely buy this again hopefully if they still carry it by the time I'm ready.
UPDATE***junk broke me out like crazy. I've since switched my facial products to non medicated. I had had high hopes for this too :(

This product didnt help me manage my breakouts at all. The only thing it did for me was to moisturize my skin, but thats just about it. I dont recommend this product.
