  • "This product really works. I have noticed it prevents breakouts, when I use it several times a week. It doesn't really dry out my skin or irritate it, which is saying a lot because my skin can be quite dry and sensitive. Love Neutrogena!" in 70 reviews

I really enjoy the fresh feeling I get after using this. I hate when face washes make my face feel dry after. I don’t have that problem with this product! It cleans and moisturizes.

This is the only facewash that clears my skin. I get intense breakouts that hurt and are obviously gross and this clears it in 2 days plus prevents new breakouts.

I started breaking out a lot a couple years ago (as an adult). I’d never really dealt with acne before so I just headed to the drugstore and purchased some random things that looked like they might have helped. This was one of the products. Now that I know more about skincare and acne, I wouldn’t purchase this.

Physical exfoliants are not good for your skin so a daily scrub is kind of horrendous to think about. Even before I knew better, I was not using this daily. I strongly recommend you research chemical exfoliants as it will be better for your skin.

I will say that I didn’t find this to be irritating to my sensitive skin. Even with the scrub and salicylic acid, I didn’t experience any bad dryness or irritation. I still wouldn’t recommend this though and suggest you look up more gentle acne fighting products and regimens.

I struggle with adult acne and decided to give this a try. I felt like it dried my face out and didn’t seem to improve my acne. It is very affordable but not effective.

Neutrogena acne control products are one that we have had more results from consistently than any other brands that we have tried for controlling my daughters acne.

Lifesaver. Seriously, I had years and years of bad breakout and scarring. I discovered this product about 2 years ago, and it was life changing. I use this twice a day, everyday. I had severe scarring on my cheeks from a reaction I had had from a different product I had previously tried, and nothing else I had ever tried was able to diminish or reduce the redness of the scarring EXCEPT for this Neutrogena All in 1. After almost 2 years, the scarring has pretty much disappeared, I just have some texture issues now. And the only time I break out anymore is because of hormones and that time of the month. I am so so happy that I'm out of the trying products and having them disagree with my skin loop that I was stuck in for so many years. I am never switching from Neutrogena All in 1, it is my holy grail face product.

This scrub is gentle enough to use daily, but still has enough grit that you can actually feel it's working. I'm far from consistent when it comes to a skin routine, but this face wash is still showing results! I have less dry/dead skin and fewer imminent breakouts. At around $5 from my local Target, I highly recommend giving it a try!

(My hesitation for not giving it the full 5 stars is because I don't feel I've had enough time with it to give that confident of a rating.)

I used this acne wash religiously when my acne was really bad during high school. For my skin type this was one of the only cleansers that did not irritate my sensitive skin while also quickly healing my acne. This product did say that it also heals scars and for me it didn't really do that at all this is why I docked it a star.

This is my go-to face wash. I wash my face twice a day and it keeps the breakouts to a minimum. I usually buy it at target where you can usually find it on sale.
