Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dryness and eventuallu broke out The first 3 days using the product was great, I am one prone to break outs but in a 3 day period I only had a few bumps. It was working great, but I notice that my skin was very dry. It was no big deal, until around the 5th day of using it. My skin was really flaky and dry. SO FLAKY. I tried to wash it and apply moisturizing lotion, but less than 10 minutes in, its flaky again. All around my mouth and nose. It even caused my earlobes to become flaky, just from minimal contact with the wash. So I had to stop using the wash, and the breakouts flowed in. I didn't mind the dry skin, but the degree in which my face was covered with flakes was too much and raised a serious concern about what it was doing to me skin to where moisturizer didn't work at all. I have not used it for 3 days now, and my face is still flaky while the breakouts roll in. The severity of the flaking is lessened, but its still really embarrassing Feb 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product! I didn't even know Neutrogena had a men's acne product until I went to their website. (I can't find it in any of the stores in LA.). Within 2 weeks of using the product, the breakouts on my forehead ceased and my hyperpigmentation has improved. Jan 10, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very unsatisfied When I bought this product, I was a little unsure because my face is so naturally prone to acne that I felt there's no way this one will work either. But within only a few days, I saw results. I was so happy and I began to truly believe in this product, like I was willing to use it for a long time and I finally found a face-wash that suited me. I began to look online for more information on this product to see what others thought or possibly other products within its lineup I could purchase. I was confused when I read so many complaints about the dryness of skin. It's a salicylic acne treatment people, that's what it's supposed to do. But then it hit me. What hit me, you ask? THE DRYNESS. Nothing. NOTHING on this planet could possibly stop my skin from flaking that day. The moisturizer I was using was FROM NEUTROGENA. My skin was dryer than the Sahara and I had to discontinue use before my entire face just peeled off. Sorry, Neutrogena.... but you really let me down. Jan 6, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dries out skin I've always had good skin. But with sports a few blemishesh would come up because of the sweat and things my face was oily. I've used many other face washes and have never had this problem but as soon as I use this my face became flaky and dry. Do not buy this Dec 29, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DON'T Stop Selling This Product I love this product and have been using it for years, as a part of my morning face cleaning and shave. It is not available in any of the stores I shop in anymore and it seems like Neutrogena is discontinuing it. Sep 19, 2014
