Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It Worked!!! I have always had problems with acne and I have used a ton of OTC products searching for something that can clean up my skin without the serious drying issues. The acne was livable in my thirties, but now that I have entered menopause I once again have the skin of a 13-16 year old! Big painful zits, blackeads, large pores and everything else in between. After consulting with my doctor I started a vitamin regimen and made changes to my diet, and that helped a bit, but I still had breakouts and dry patches. I saw the Neutrogena Rapid Clear in a pack wtith the cleanser and the lotion so I thought I would give it a try. One week after I started the dry patches on my face were gone the worst of the acne was cleared up. One month into this and I have noticed the blackheads are gone and the large pores on my nose have shrunk noticeably. I also have some scar tissue from a car accident that is usually pretty sensitve, but the cleanser doesn't bother the scars at all. I hope to find this product on the shelves for a long time! And if my skin changes again I will work with Neutrogena products before anything else. May 17, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Started working immediately My son has very oily skin, I was always bothering him to go wash his face. I read the reviews on this product and I am so glad I bought it. It immediately started to control the oil, and his acne is drying out without overdrying his face. I am very pleased with this product. May 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wow, keeps my skin crystal clear! This product is awesome! Been using it for so many years years. I have tired so many products but this one works so well in keeping my blemishes away and helping me have a crystal clear complexion. I needed to write a review because i don't want to product discontinued. I use it twice a day, works great ! Apr 19, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Can't replace the 3-in-1 treatment The Rapid Clear Acne Defense Lotion dries out my skin, I'm not able to use it every day. I have more blemishes than before. I switched to this product immediately after I finished my very last tube of the discontinued Acne Stress Control 3-in-1 treatment. I had been hoarding a supply and I finally ran out. Many reviewers for this Rapid Clear product just want 3-in-1 back. Before 3-in-1 was discontinued, it had 525 reviews, 99% would recommend the product, and had an overall 4.9/5. Reviewers begged and pleaded that the product not be discontinued. Acne can be very debilitating and Neutrogena had a product that helped. Online markets have 3-in-1 selling for 10 times its original price! I've bought many tubes of 3-in-1 over the past 5 years, but this was my first and last tube of Rapid Clear. Mar 26, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Just not as good as 3 in 1 that was DISCONTINUED! To add to the sentiment of many other unhappy customers, I only started using this because the 3 in 1 Hydrating Acne Lotion was discontinued. It was the best I've thing I've ever used. After several years of searching for a replacement and buying from what's left on eBay and Amazon (at a high cost), unfortunately it is pretty much all gone, expired, and way too expensive. So I'm left using sub-par moisturizer that costs more and doesn't work as well. I'm very disappointed that Neutrogena did this, especially since it was a product that clearly the majority of people loved. Feb 7, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Only used because you discontinued THE BEST!! I've been using this because you have discontinued Oil Free Acne Stress Control 3 in 1 Hydrating Acne Treatment. I had luckily stockpiled it after the last time it went off the shelves, so I haven't had to use this too long. It works, but it is not even close to as good as the discontinued product. I used the other product every day, 2x. I can't use this product every day. It is irritating and drying. This makes my skin feel tight, the other made it feel soft and smooth on top of treating my pores and acne. My skin looked great before- more even, it looks just ok now. PLEASE bring back the Hydrating Acne Treatment! I don't want to, but if I have to, I will pay more money next purchase for a product that works like the old Neutrogena product (from another company). This has made me rethink using any other Neutrogena products, if you are just going to keep pulling them, when there is OBVIOUS demand for them. Jan 19, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Broke me out worse! I was dying to try this product because everyone absolutely raved about it. After one night with it on, I woke up to more break outs. I still suffer with acne. If anyone wants to suggest ideas, I'm desperate to take any. Dec 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Over *ahem* 40 skin stays clear! I've struggled with acne cysts for many years (not to mention oiliness, enlarged pores, hyper-pigmentation, eczema...), so it's hard to keep my skin looking good. I've been using this product (every morning underneath an SPF 30 moisturizer) for several years now. It's the only one that keeps my skin clear without causing any sensitivity issues. (I've also added the Rapid Wrinkle Repair (w/ retinol) at night, and just today, my boss asked me if I was less stressed because my skin looked so good!) But this product is SO hard to find! Why??? Anytime I do find it, I try to buy several at a time! Aug 29, 2014

Cleanse skin thoroughly before applying medication. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by doctor. If excessive drying or bothersome peeling occurs, reduce application.
