Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle working Some history about my skin: I had clear skin pretty much up until my mid-late 20s, with a pimple maybe here or there around my period. However, about three months ago, my cheeks exploded with pimples out of seemingly nowhere. I searched many internet forums and sought advice from anyone I could find, from dermatologists to my doctor to random friends and family. I bought countless cleansers, toners, and moisturizers, which all seemed to promise perfect skin. My skin just kept getting worse and worse. Nothing was working, and I was losing hope. I was perusing Target one day, and came across this cleanser. I bought it on a whim, because I figured it was better than doing nothing. I'm not kidding you, literally after my first wash, my pimples started feeling less painful and swollen. Within an hour, there was a visible difference in the size and redness of the acne on my cheeks. I thought that maybe it was just my eyes seeing things, so I decided to keep using it to see what would happen. Fast forward only three days-- my pimples have mostly disappeared or have gone down at least 50% in size/redness. I'm shocked how fast this cleanser has worked. I could cry at how much time and money I've wasted on other products and research. THANK YOU Neutrogena for this cleanser, and please never stop selling this formula. This is my holy grail and Neutrogena, you now have a lifetime customer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleared up my skin like no other product has done I bought this product a few months ago when I needed face wash. I have always liked Neutrogena products but I didn’t have much hope that it would do much for my oily, acne-prone skin. At 40 years old, I was still battling breakouts like I had since high school. After a week of using this product, I was shocked at how clear my skin was becoming. I am still using it and I maybe get one pimple around my period but that’s it. And bonus, it smells so fresh and clean, not medicinal like so many other acne control products. Please don’t change it! You have a customer for life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Grail Discovered this years ago in high school and it changed my life. It’s the single most important part of my routine - I’ve changed everything else to something eco-friendly, but this is the one thing I’ll never let go :) Hydrating, yet keeps me completely acne free. Please never ever change this product :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Started working right away! I've struggled with adult cystic acne for quite some time. That's right. It's worse than when I was a teenager. I have used so many different products and followed so many different regimes over the years. I'm really happy with the effectiveness of the products Nuetrogena has to offer. Before using this face wash I was using the All-in-1 Acne Control. That was amazing as well. But I was still getting breakouts here and there. Until one day I went to my local store and it wasn't on the shelf. So I reached for this product. I am so glad I did. It really does control the redness in my face. It doesn't dry out my skin (while I already have dry skin). I have very sensitive skin as well and it doesn't irritate it either. If you are not used to using Sacylic Acid and have sensitive skin, it may cause you irritation. But for me I didn't have a single issue. This product also works fast on my acne scars. Which is amazing. Because everyone knows they stick around forever. I am aware that it usually takes weeks and even up to 3 months before you truly start seeing improvement in your skin. But I know my complexion well enough to know when something is working.
