The formula in Neutrogena‘s Oil Free Acne Moisturizer, $8.99, contains a fresh, invigorating grapefruit scent and is designed to deal with skin that is dry yet acne prone. Dryness causes flaking and peeling, which can make it hard to apply make up and acne actually appears worse as a result. That’s where this moisturizer can help! It contains salicylic acid (0.5%), a proven acne fighter. It is also lightweight, non-greasy and will not clog pores.
I gave this to my nineteen year-old daughter to try. She was not accustomed to using a moisturizer so this was fairly new for her. She used it right after washing her face and said the scent was great; really perked her up in the morning. Also, the water-based formula didn’t turn greasy during the day and it kept her skin looking refreshed and smooth. The salicylic acid kept breakouts to a minimum so she was quite pleased with that too. She has said that in the future, she will continue to use this product.
Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Spot Gel, $9.49, claims to reduce two key signs of stubborn acne–size and redness–in just two hours due to the new formula that contains maximum strength Benzoyl Peroxide acne medicine .
Again, my nineteen year-old daughter was my tester on this product. Once in a while she gets very stubborn acne and has not found a way to treat it successfully. Happily enough, Rapid Clear Spot Gel did the trick within a few hours. But she noted that it should not be used on anything other than the blemish; she was not so careful applying it the first time and the surrounding area on her cheek became a little red and scaly—not good! But she was more careful the next time and the results were excellent. She plans to always keep a tube on hand.
