  • "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 love this face wash! It is one of my holy grail items. I like to switch it up with different face washes, but this is always my go-to. It cleared up my acne and the blackheads on my nose are smaller and more manageable

This product is simply incredible. It works almost instantly! The one day I woke up I felt a pimple about to happen and when I washed my face with it the next day there wasn't any trace of it. Great for any time of acne.

I used this scrub to help eliminate my acne and the formula was easy on my sensitive skin. I have bought this scrub probably 5 different times because it met was expectorations. I would buy again for me and my friends.

I have enjoyed using this product. I like how it leaves my skin feeling and I have noticed a difference in the dryness in my skin after only a week of using this product.

Great product ! Controls my break outs and isn't too drying, unlike many other acne cleansers out there. I love the cream formula. Have only been using for 2 weeks so I haven't noticed a reduction in scarring yet.

I like to use this acne scrub as an every other day product. I purchased from Walmart and would say that for a non prescription acne wash, it serves its purpose. I find that neutrogena products work great for my skin

I love the way this stuff smells, it's not too strong, but it has a clean smell. I also love the way my skin isn't overly dryer out after using this product. Most leave my face dry and peeling but not this face wash.

I've tried so many products, and this is the only one that has any effect at all. It doesn't get rid of 100% by itself but I use another product, a leave on mask, and it gets rid of my breakouts all together!
