Additional Information

Benefits

Some acne spot treatments contain high doses of the acne medication Benzoyl Peroxide, which can irritate skin. It can also cause redness and dryness, which can make acne worse. Our formula contains just 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide, yet is clinically proven to be so effective that skin starts getting clearer on day 1 – all without over-drying, stinging or burning skin.

This fast working formula is so lightweight that it quickly absorbs into skin. And it goes deep down to the pores to kill the acne bacteria that cause pimples and helps to prevent new ones from forming.

  • Oil-free
  • Non-comoedogenic (won't clog pores)
  • 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide

how to use

  • Clean the skin thoroughly before applying this product.
  • 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 a doctor.
  • If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.
  • If going outside, apply sunscreen after using this product.
  • If irritation or sensitivity develops, stop use of both products and ask a doctor.

On-the-Spot® Acne Treatment is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 140.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from New formula is TERRIBLE! I've been using the this product for 10+ years and it was the only thing that actually kept my skin clear. Then all of a sudden they changed the formula with no warning whatsoever. The new formula does not work at all for my skin. I've actually had to look online to try to buy any remaining stock of the old formula. I had to throw the current product in the trash, it's completely different from the original.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from doesnt even make my pimples budge This product did not do anything what so ever. Then I became desperate and I used another product with it and it was horrible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AwesomeB I love this product! The new formula is very drying so you can only put it on the pimple! If you rub it all around your face it drys out..... which is expected! This flattened my pimple within 24hr and I was ready to have my photo shoot! Love it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed My skin typically isn't very sensitive and I've used many Neutrogena products over the years as well as similar products to this from other brands so I didn't think twice when picking this up at the store and trying something new. I used it on my problem areas one night and woke up with red, blotchy skin in those areas - my skin looked worse than it did before. Even with layers of green concealer and foundation I couldn't cover up the redness this caused. I immediately threw away the product. :\

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful I've used this for years and it's always been my go to spot treatment. Sadly, like the other recent reviews have stated, the new formula is awful and made me break out. PLEASE change it back. I will no longer be purchasing this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Burned my face I have never had a problem with Neutrogena until they updated this formula. My face is extremely red and tender. Something with this product is irritating to my skin. Not buying again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible new formula! This product used to be a staple for me and has helped clear my skin through the years before this formula change. Now it actually causes breakouts! The formula, look, feel, and packaging is entirely different. I wish I could get my money back, or at least a warning that the formula is new on the packaging. You guys haven't even updated the formula on your website. I am extremely disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Please change it back!! Like many other customers, I am extremely disappointed with the new formula. Very ineffective and doesn't clear up acne at all. The "old" formula was a miracle and now I don't know what to do. Please please please change it back to what it had been, which was a perfect remedy for all types of acne.
