Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent moisturizer for acne/sensitive skin. I've been using this product as a moisturizer following the Stress Control Acne line since early June. Now 4 months into it I have seen such a great improvement to my skin. I like the RCAD lotion because it leaves absolutely no oily residue and it absorbs quickly into my face leaving my skin soft and hydrated without any stinging or irritation to my already sensitive skin. Had absolutely no breakouts or flare-ups while using it and in combination with the Stress Control line, my acne is entirely diminished and the scars from years of suffering have even faded considerably.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Use to LOVE it, now I just like it - but a lot! Recently, Neutrogena changed the formula of this product, in which more fragrance was added and the botanical extracts that help with breakouts were moved to the end of the ingredients. Before this change, I was absolutely IN LOVE with this product. It was one of the few products that actually worked. Now, it is a little more irritating due to more fragrance, but it is still absolutely effective! My skin is always smooth, poreless, and breakout free. Neutrogena, please consider changing the formula back or lowering the fragrance. Other than this, THIS IS GOLD EVERYONE. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff!! Started using this a couple weeks ago. I love it!! I have been struggling with oily skin and acne for years I use this before applying my makeup and at night after my toner and it keeps my skin oil free all day. I'm using this along with the rapid clear stubborn acne cleanser, and the oil free acne stress control triple action toner. I also use the oil free acne stress control power clear scrub a couple times a week at night. This combination has been a life saver for me, I currently have just about no acne, maybe a few tiny whiteheads, a couple weeks ago I was in tears my skin was so bad and painful. I feel like I could leave the house with no foundation, I don't remember the last time I could say that. Thanks neutrogena!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LUV!!!!!! I love this product. I use it daily (at night before I go to bed) and it is great. I have a pimple now because I'm having to limit my use since I can't find it in Houston. Someone should explain!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actually works! I am a 54 year old man and I have problem skin still. This is the the only thing I have ever found that really works without drying my face and making matters worse. You have to try it. My kids actually listened to me and it has helped them better than anything they have tried.
