Description

Benefits:

Some acne spot treatments contain high doses of the acne medication Benzoyl Peroxide, which can irritate skin. It can also cause redness and dryness, which can make acne worse. Our formula contains just 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide, yet is clinically proven to be so effective that skin starts getting clearer on day 1 – all without over-drying, stinging or burning skin.

This fast working formula is so lightweight that it quickly absorbs into skin. And it goes deep down to the pores to kill the acne bacteria that cause pimples and helps to prevent new ones from forming.

  • Oil-free
  • Non-comoedogenic (won't clog pores)
  • 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide

Love this stuff! I put it over spots on my skin where it feels like a zit is about to form and usually by the next day the redness and irritation has totally subsided

I usually like Neutrogena products but this one wasn't very effective for me. Instead I now opt for  Clean & Clear® Advantage® Acne Spot Treatment which seems to work better with my skin and clearing up my pimples... I even see results when I leave it on overnight!  Neutrogena® On-the-Spot® Acne Treatment uses benzoyl peroxide instead of salicylic acid, so it depends on which one you prefer and which works better for your skin.

I never really had acne, just occasional blemishes here and there. This product is reasonably priced and I use it every so often on one or two spots on my face when needed.

This is a great spot acne treatment. It is drying, so only use on your pimple. Once it starts to dry up, you don’t need to use it anymore. But zaps my white heads off in barely over a day. This works better for me then proactive or other brands like that.

I have been using the Neutrogena On-the-Spot Acne Treatment for about four years now. I LOVE, LOVE this product because it works.

In the past, I probably tried over 25 different acne products and none of them really made a difference with my skin. This one is different.

Here is what has worked for me:
After washing my face in the morning, I apply the On-the-Spot. Take some extra time with rubbing it in, this has helped me. After thoroughly removing my makeup and cleaning my skin at night, I apply a pretty decent amount of the product and again I take the extra time to really massage it into my skin.

I have tried other benzoyl peroxide treatments, but most have left my skin really dry. This vanishing cream does not dry out my skin. Smile!

Kinda smells and feels like glue. I don’t really mind it though! Stick this on a zit and in the morning it is drastically reduced! I always keep some in my purse!

If you weren't satisfied with this product, which ones would you recommend?
I have very sensitive skin. Most acne treatments are too harsh on my skin. Do you think this would work for me?

I don't have acne, just one or so breakouts, would you recommend this as a quick, fast, and simple product for that? I know it does depends on skin type.
