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.

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!

I just discovered this product last week only to realize it's been discontinued. I was bummed. I saw soooo many great review on it that I really felt like I missed out. I went and bought Clean and Clear ADVANTAGE Oil Absorbing Treatment.
But the scent of it is WAY too strong and it lingers.
Well, as I was searching for another BHA product, I saw that walgreens website is still selling the Neutrogena 3 in 1 treatment. Last week they listed it as being unavailable but now it's available again. So if you are looking for it, you may want to load up. I bought 4.
It's the only place online that I've been able to find it so far.

It seems I discovered this item right around the time it was being discontinued, which is really too bad because I like this a lot.
As a mattifying moisturizer, this product works very well. I find that it keeps my oiliness at bay all day long without clogging my pores the way some other mattifiers have. It can, however, dry my skin out a bit over time. I don't like to use this more than a couple of days in a row as a result.
As far as acne control, I've noticed it helps reduce redness immediately, so that's nice. But It doesn't appear to make the blemishes go away faster or anything like that. However, what makes this product so amazing is that it does actually prevent breakouts from happening and I know this for a fact. It used to be that whenever I got my eyebrows threaded I would always end up with a few blemishes in the area that they worked on. Every time! But when I use this product in the days following my brow threading, I never ever break out at all. That alone makes this a miracle must-have product for me. It WORKS.
I do wish this wasn't being discontinued because it really is great and only costs a few dollars.
(It looks like Neutrogena is replacing this product with an item called All-in-1 Acne Control Treatment. The newer product comes in a 1oz tube intead of the 2oz, it costs about $10 instead of $6, AND it only contains 1% salicylic acid instead of 2%. Yep it's smaller, weaker, and more expensive. BOO, Neutrogena!!)

I have oily skin, and I use this product as a spot treatment for my acne. I put this on after i have washed my face and moisturize. For me personally, this product gave me a lot more blackheads in places that i'd never get before. I tend to use it on my forehead, and i've noticed that though my acne reduced a bit but there's a bunch of blackheads forming around the area that I would apply this to! I think I will apply this right after i wash my face as opposed to after moisturizing, maybe it will make a difference.

UMMMM WOW!!!!! I've been dealing with hormonal breakouts along my jaw on a monthly basis and at my age its pretty unbearable! I bought this on Sunday, applied it twice that day and that evening. Once in the am on Monday and once in that evening and I tell you the belmishes that were brewing are GONE!!!!! Thank you MUA for keeping us informed on a product I would'nt have thought of trying. Me VERY HAPPY!

I used this product about 4 years ago and absolutely loved it. At that time I had acne-prone skin and this gel was amazing. It's very light, smells nice, does not cost a lot and really, really helps.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I freaking LOVE this stuff. I really believe it has saved my skin. I bought this with the Acne Stress gel wash and I hated the cleanser but this cream is amazing. This stuff clears up old pimples super fast and prevents new ones from happening. It also smells very nice. Doesn't make my skin dry or oily. It's awesome. GET IT. You will not regret it.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Normal, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Grey
I love this stuff! It is gold. I no longer have zits on my forehead or nose. It took a little longer for it to work on my chin, but I have no new zits there and my acne scars are fading. This worth it's weight in gold. Plus, it has a pleasant watermelon scent. I don't know where to find it, though. It is sold out on drugstore.com and amazon.

This stuff really works. I break out about once or twice a month. If I put this on at night my acne significantly diminishes by the next morning; if I put it on in the morning it works throughout the day. That really surprised me because all the other treatments I've tried have not worked so quickly. It also has a really nice cooling sensation.
Packaging is good, and I bought this small tube 2-3 months ago and I still have some left. I use it twice a day.
That being said, it doesn't stop me from breaking out (ie. it's not preventative). It's also not moisturizing at all. I often use a light moisturizer on top. I don't mind these things too much because I've never used a treatment that works so fast. It's now a staple product for me.

This product it's one of the best i've have ever try! i deffy think if you have bad acne you should try it! i swear by it!.. I have had bad bad acne when i was 19 and now two years later i try this product cuz my sister recommend it to me and omg! i cant believe it literally took away all my acne! i tried clinique and other expensive products, and none of them helped me with my acne, i had really really ugly pimples all over my face, cystic acne too! and now my skin it is completely clear up thanks to this. I really hope they don't discontinue this product because i still use it. I started seeing results in 2 days of using it, then ALLof my acne went away after 3 months of using this! now i get 1 or 2 pimples but thats it. I love it! and I troughly recommend it.

I had tons of blackheads all over my nose, in between my eyebrows, and even developing on my cheeks so I knew I needed to change my skin care routine. I researched and researched which treatment would be the best for me and I learned that BHAs are supposed to be really good for unlodging blackheads. I initially tried samples of Paula's Choice BHA's which made my sensitive skin pretty raw looking and dry. I thought I'd give this a try instead after reading the reviews here and I could not be happier with my results.
It calmed down the uncomfortable and tight redness that Paula's Choice BHA lotion/gel had caused on my skin, however I noticed during this time where I had a couple pimples on my forehead, more pimples started coming to the surface. This is a purging period, and where ever I had a couple pimples that tended to form, during my first couple weeks after using this the pimples surfaced. They healed MUCH faster than they normally would though, healing in a few days versus a couple weeks. I was freaking out during this time because of all the new pimples, but stuck it out because I heard this happens to some people.
My skin was tons smoother, although if I used this product both day and night I noticed it would start to feel kind of raw and turn pink, so I recommend starting out maybe once a day or every other day if you have sensitive skin, and then building up your usage after that. By a month into this product although my blackheads were still there, I stopped breaking out in pimples like I normally would!!! And the blackheads around my nose were getting softer and super easy to extract after showering.
If I did get a pimple by now, it would be small and only last a couple of days, and before using this product I had at least 2-3 pimples on my forehead for the last 2 years :( This product is A GODSEND PEOPLE.
Blackheads on my forehead are ALL GONE except like 5, versus when I initially started this product EVERY pore on my forehead was at least semi-clogged, and now I could see clear pores, and I could actually see more oil flow during the day on my forehead because my pores were now clear!!! (not alot of oil, just a healthy sheen youd expect to see by mid-day)
Although this product didnt COMPLETELY get rid of blackheads on my cheeks and nose, it has DRAMATICALLY improved my complexion, and has ridden me of pimples. I havent had a pimple in like 2 months....my skin hasnt been this good since like 4-5 years ago no exaggeration. The blackheads and clogged pores that I still have are extremely small now, and I'm still seeing improvements so I'm still hoping with continued use they'll finally disappear.
2x a day after cleasning face, under makeup or moistruizer (but I would recommend for the first month once a day)
I have dry skin so I also use cetaphil moisturizing cream (which is the best moisturizer I have ever used, it has transformed my skin as well...but thats another review)
The only bad part is I can only buy this online :'( Ive never seen it in a store. But its only like 5-10 dollars depending on the site. I'm on my 3rd tube btw!
After trying tons of DIY at home remedies and various other drugstore products nothing has come close to this. I love you Neutrogena!! <3

Up until recently, I've never had much trouble with my skin. About six months ago I started breaking out around the neck and chin with what I can only hypothesize are hormone-related cystic pimples. My skin has become increasingly oily, and it's harder these days to keep my makeup from breaking down and wearing off throughout the day. I heard about this product from gossmakeupartist on YouTube as a possible solution for blackheads on the nose. I have used this product for several months now, and while the blackheads on my nose aren't GONE, they are greatly improved. But the most remarkable thing about this product is that it keeps my skin very clear and keeps those cystic pimples away. It has a thin, creamy gel-like consistency and a light, fresh fragrance. It feels very fresh and cooling on the skin. It makes my skin feel very soft and adequately moisturized, but it also does a good job controlling oil. I actually use this as a moisturizer both AM and PM. I've tried to throw a night cream into the mix, but honestly, my skin is better off when I use this alone. The only drawback to this product is that it is incredibly hard to find. I can only find it at one of the Walmarts in town. Not at Target, not at the drugstores...very frustrating. But if you can get your hands on this, I think it is a fabulous moisturizer/treatment for oily and acne-prone types.

This is such a wonderful product! I have 30yr old, picky/finicky, acne & clog-prone, very oily skin (that was a mouth full Lol ;D) Oily skin & clogged pores are usually my daily issues though..Some time ago I read on the makeup board several people using this product for oil control under makeup (like a primer), so I got one for myself at my local drugstore for just under $7. It comes in a small squeeze tube & is green in color while in the tube & also slightly green when squeezed out until applied to the skin, then turns completely clear.
The day I purchased this I had a painful under-the-skin cystic zit just beginning to form. Normally I would hurry & slap some of my sulfur mask on it to stop it in it's tracks, but I had this in my hand & decided to give it a go & see if it could *really* perform to treat acne like it claims on the box.. And NO LIE, 6 hrs. later I looked in the mirror again & it was like magic -practically gone!! It was no longer painful, no longer red, no longer inflamed, and no longer stuck under the skin! After 6 hours it had become just a teeny tiny, (not even noticeable) whitehead that was completely gone the following morning! I thought, heck, who cares if this works under makeup as a primer or not at this point because this stuff is frickin magic for pimples!
So does it help acne? Yes, absolutely :)
For oil control, it also helps. It's labeled as "hydrating" & instructs that you use it as a moisturizer type treatment. On days I'm wearing no makeup, I'm able to wear this alone as a moisturizer, and it controls my oil for hours & hours beautifully, I'm very pleased with those results. However on days that I *do* wear makeup, I have a tough time making this product work under it. I can not use this hydrating treatment as my only moisturizer under makeup because it's too drying.. I need to use a regular moisturizer + this, then still have a tough time controlling flakies/dryness with several of my regular/daily foundations :( I do plan on experimenting w/this more now that I found it again, and plan to try with moisturizer + silicone based primer under my makeup & may have better results? -If I do I'll definately update! :D
Regardless, this stuff is amazing at tightening my pores, healing up any TTOM pimples/zits, and perfect as my moisturizer on no makeup days, ALL for less than $7, I've already repurchased once & plan to continue to do so as long as Neutrogena continues to produce it! :)
I'm still using this several times a week and it's my *go-to* for spot treating anything that pops up. It truely is a miracle treatment :)
So I was going through reviews for this product and noticed that some of the other reviewers are having a hard time finding this at brick & mortar stores and wanted to share that this is *always* in stock at all 3 of my local WalMart stores. I know everyone's area stores are different but if you've looked at the regular drugstores in your areas with no success try WalMart :)

I bought this more so for my large pores , I wanted a BHA. So glad i bought this because it turns out not only does it help my skin look better but a great side effect is i am less oily when i use this. So I have been applying it on my T-Zone under my Mu (as well as my regular items such as primer) and i am less oily through out the day. It also doesn't dry me out at all which is great. Can't recommend this enough.
