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
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well for me! I have been using this product for more than a year. It works very well for me. It cleared up a pesky acne problem and keeps my face smooth and free of new breakouts. I am surprised to see others' complaints about it causing dry skin and new breakouts. My skin tends to get oily in warm weather, so perhaps this product works better for oily skin; I don't know. Neutrogena, it would help if you would address the complaints by other reviewers. That said, this product gets my vote. Jul 9, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointment all over my face. I am a transgender man who just recently started testosterone, which means second puberty and a new crop of acne. I've struggled with acne in the past and the only face wash I've ever used that didn't react horribly was the Neutrogena cleansing wash, so when I saw the Acne Wash (and a coupon) I grabbed it immediately. I really wish I hadn't. This product has made my skin dry out and flake more than almost everything else I've tried. Yeah, it cleans, but the increased oil production does not help and as someone who works with the public and is going through puberty (again, second time round), I don't need more trouble with my skin. Until Neutrogena changes their formula, I would not recommend this to anyone. May 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Absolutely love this cleanser! I read the previous reviews and am astonished that so many people didn't like it. (I believe they may be allergic to the Salicylic Acid in the product.) I have large pores and some hair on my face. (I don't have a beard but a few stragglers underneath my chin and jawline.) I've also suffered from acne all my life and this is the ONLY product that has worked for me. It has lessen the breakouts and my skin is softer. I use it along with the Oil-Free Acne Stress Control Triple-Action Toner. Dec 24, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Dry Skin Used it for the first time tonight and it dried my skin out. I should have looked it up and reviewed it before I bought it. I guess I learned my lesson didn't I? Maybe next time I won't be so quick to buy something before reviewing it? Nov 26, 2013
