Neutrogena® Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Spot Gel
I was skeptic at first and it has been sitting on my bathroom shelf for a few weeks bec my mom also uses it. Well I had these 2 spots that I haven't been healing and keep getting irritated on my chin. I am pregnant so I get the pregnancy chin acne from time to time. Well this time these were beyond stubborn. Yesterday I decided to stop everything else except for the Neutrogena deep clean facial cleanser and decided to give this spot gel for stubborn acne a chance. I am very happy to say that the redness has subsided and it is actually clearing it up. I put some on yesterday morning and it is not something that you can apply and then use makeup. You have to apply it and be at home bec it is something that you leave on and it has a white paste look but I washed my face last night again and placed it on my chin again. This morning the soreness and redness was gone. So I have cleaned my face this morning again and reapplied it for today and I am hoping by tomorrow it will be completely gone. The results are actually awesome and I am really happy that this is working. I was running out of options and I hate having to use products that don't work at all. This one does though and I recommend it to anyone who has acne spots that just won't heal or get better. This will solve your issue or atleast should.
This is an okay product. It claims that it makes acne go away in 12 hours and you’re supposed to apply it 2x or as often as possible a day. It’s hard to apply constantly because it leaves a white paste on your face even if you rub it into your skin, so you can’t go anywhere with it because there are white marks on your face. It did clean some of my acne but not all of it.
This stuff works, but boy is it strong! It is rapid yes. I use it when i really.want something to go away fast, but i try to uae it infrequently/minimally because it makes my skin red and inflamed and a bit itchy the next day after using. Also, if i accidentally get it where there are no breakouts the skin around it can get itchy sore too the morning after. I think it's great but i would make sure to put it only right on top of the blemishes and to use somw sort of gentle soothing moisturizer afterwards to minimize sensitivity. Also, don't use this every single night. This is more for mo ster zits and not itty bitty blemishes or whiteheads.
I am way past puberty but once in a great while I will get a stubborn zit and it drives me crazy. My daughter told me about this product and I read umpteen reviews on Influenster and purchased a tube of this “liquid gold.” This goes to work and does its thing. In 3 days my zit banished. I am one happy camper. Very affordable product. I would definitely recommend.
I absolutely love this product. My mom first bought it for me on amazon and I fell in love with it. You don’t need a lot of product all you need is a little bit and you put it on your pimples. Sometimes I wake up with a huge zit and I’ll put the cream on there and it’ll be small in 2 hours. Also it takes the redness around the pimples away. Would definitely recommend.
DON’T WAIT. Please please please do yourself a favor and buy this if you ever get stubborn acne. I live by this acne treatment. It works better than any other acne treatment I’ve used in my entire life. I have this stubborn pimple that re appears on my chin every month. When I had to go to a wedding in 2 days, of course the pimple re appeared. This acne treatment cleared it OVERNIGHT. It actually works!!!
Before my acne became a real problem in my life, I used this twice a day all over my face. I enjoyed it, and I feel like it helped even out my skin and slowly get rid of any occasional breakouts. My mom still uses this, and she enjoys it. I would recommend it to others especially if they have slightly acne prone skin. Once my acne got bad I do not feel like it worked as well as it once did, however.
This, combined with my Burt’s Bees skincare routine, is what rapidly and effectively clears up large acne breakouts. It’s a little too drying to use on a swath of skin, but I apply a generous amount to individual pimples before bed, and by morning they’ve dried out, lost the angry red color, and de-swelled. I also apply it in the morning as needed, however be careful with that because it can dry down white and noticeable in large amounts (which doesn’t matter at night but caused one embarrassing moment during school). It’s not all natural like B.B. by any means, but this is so effective and the large bottle has lasted around a year and is nowhere even near halfway done, despite daily, generous use. I recommend it to my friends, and already got my brother using it. It lasts so long, you definitely get bang for your buck.
I’ve tried to love this product on multiple occasions, but my face doesn’t seem to agree with this product. You can find your local Neutrogena products at any nearby pharmacy, so the accessibility part is great! But the product itself needs to change its formula! After using this product, I’ve noticed my acne hasn’t change but increases in numbers! Also, I tend to dry out more and begin to peel.
This stuff is super effective at calming down angry red blemishes. I like to put this on at night, and then wash it off in the morning. The next day, my spots are smaller and less red. They'll be completely gone in just a couple uses. However, be warned: this will bleach almost anything it touches, so invest in some benzoyl peroxide resistant pillowcases if you have this.
