  • "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 don't have acne, but I have breakouts when I have my period. It cleans up my face in a few days. It drys my skin a little, but it's worth it. It super easy to find and very cheap for a skincare product.

My bottle is almost empty and today I plan on going out to buy more. I love, love, love this scrub. This clears up my acne beautifully, and does not strip my delicate skin of its much needed moisture; this is surprising because most scrubs can be harsh, I think because its a cream consistency; it's less harsh on the skin other than gel like scrubs, and doesn't have a million beads in 1 bottle. So why did I take off a star? What attracted me was the fading of scars and I just didn't see it doing much for that, my tea tree oil and hydroquinine cream took care of that extremely fast though; so its fine. I still love this product because of its amazing acne fighting power, and gentleness on the skin. I can't see myself without it, and I thank neutrogena for such a great product. I had some stubborn little pimples and this was the only thing that was finally able to get rid of them along with your other product; the cream cleanser which I use right after this, check that out too. Thanks neutrogena.

This is an incredibly harsh product. I recommend not using this product more than once a week and if you have sensitive skin I wouldn’t recommend using it at all. This product worked well for husband, but it made my breakouts worse.

Love it🧡! I like how it helps with my dead skin. Like if I have dry/ dead skin around a pimple it gets rid of it. Neutrogena® All-in-1 Acne Control Daily Scrub I use this twice if not once a day.

I use this face wash almost everyday and I absolutely love it. A friend said she cleared her face with it so i used it with the same intentions. My face cleared up and it's just a perfect mix between exfoliating and gentle.

I use this facial cleanser every morning and I love using it as a quick scrub or leaving it on for a few minutes to really exfoliate my skin. It’s inexpensive and the packaging is great too!

I have been buying a ton of different things for my 14 year old son's acne. The price is fine, but it didn't really clear his skin. It didn't break him out more either like some other products do. I would not buy it again.

I love this face cleanser. It is honestly the best one I have used yet. It keeps me from breaking out and is very good to use everyday. This is one of the only face cleanser that I can say 100% helped me out a lot with my acne!

I am loving this. I have sensitive skin and this is a gentle acne scrub. It feels deep cleaning and my skin feels soft after washing. I think it is helping to clear up my current breakout!

This was great for clearing breakouts but it also helps with old scars and dark spots! Me and my husband use this my skin is not sensitive so I'm not sure how it works for sensitive skin!
