Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice gel cleanser Fresh clean feel without dry feeling - nice gel product that doesn't get too foamy, easy to keep out of your eyes. The Neutrogena Acne Proofing Gel Cleanser left no residue on my face and helped with keeping outbreaks to a minimum and healing faster. Fresh smell and great in my daily shower.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from After Constant Breakouts I am usually the type to rarely have acne if i do its on my nose or on my forehead due to hair products. I had started breaking out on my cheeks, my chin, and my forehead. Basically everywhere I felt so self conscious as I never had acne like this. I had bought all the face washes in the world, face cleansers, tried the Aztec clay nothing was working just made it worst. I saw this at a local CVS overpriced I must say. I went ahead and said let me try this. That was about a week ago and my face has cleared about significantly, less pimples. I just have two little pimples on my forhead, but that is from my natural hair. This worked for me paired with witch hazel,rose water and 100% african sheab butter. Try it if you are having stuborn breakouts also drink water, eat clean, and dont touch your face

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great This product is great for removing dirt and oils from the face, but I find it can dry the face out.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing I have used the Neutrogena Acne Proofing Gel Cleanser for weeks and have only noticed a decline in the appearance of my skin. While using the product, my face has broken out which was disappointing being that it's supposed to fight acne rather than cause it. I would not recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice product, but why the fragrance?? I wanted to post a review because when I researched this before purchasing I noticed most reviewers had been provided the product in exchange for a review which could skew their opinion. As stated, I purchased this with my own money. That said, here are the "pros": 1. This product has a fairly high percentage of salicylic acid compared to some other products (2%). 2. I had a pimple developing when I purchased the product and using it may have helped heal it (within 2 days) and prevent new ones from forming, but I must disclose that I have been using Neutrogena Naturals Acne Spot Treatment daily for the last year and so I was using the wash along with it (I bought this wash to give my the spot treatment an extra "boost" of salicylic acid). 3. It has not been irritating. In fact, when I am done washing my face I was shocked to notice that my skin is not red at all but instead more calm that before I washed it. 4. I didn't feel that it stripped my skin or made it feel tight. (I do recommend using a moistuizer afterward though as with any products that contain salicylic acid). There is a con, and a large one at that: 1. The smell. This scent is strong and smells is like men's aftershave or body wash. Not only does the fragrance smell strongly when you use it but I can actually smell this masculine scent on my face during the day after rinsing it off thoroughly. The bigger issue than the scent here is that I am sure Neutrogena is well aware that adding fragrance such as this only increases the potential for the product to be irritating to the skin, so why do it??? There is zero reason to add fragrance. So if I will have to see if the benefits of this product outweigh having to go around smelling a strong masculine scent on my face throughout the day. Neutrogena, please reformulate this product and merely remove the unnecessary scent and it will be fantastic!
