Rated 3.0 out of 5.0Â by bummer 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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0Â by DisappointedinAZ 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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0Â by Feeling let down 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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by Nato57 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by KurleeEdna 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!

I don't get acne very often but when I do it tends to be awful! All the other moisturizers I used only caused more acne and oily looking skin. This product not only moisturizes, but it fights acne. When I have a pimple I put this on and the size/redness is considerably reduced in just hours! Love this product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by glopez Amazing Product!!!
I have been struggling with acne all my life from product to product there's days that my face is clear and days that I look like a pizza, and for the past month it's been red bumps and blackheads. I literally started this product last week and my face is smooth, healthy and most important clear and the best part is that my old red/brown pimple scars are fading away! This is truly an amazing product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Bsh00tt A moisturizer that won't keep me up at night!
Whenever I would clean my face before I go to bed, products will leave my face dry or stuff in some cases. Finally, I can put a moisturizer on my face, and not have to worry about it creating more acne! This is a need for me!
