Rapid Clear Acne Eliminating Spot Gel is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 76.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely the best zapper of zits! I use this product to eliminate pimples before they flair up and become irritated and infected. It's the only product that works for me. I've tried many. It's hard to find in stores so access to it on this website is so important!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from replacement for a discontinued product This is replacing the other salycilic product that they used to carry. So far it is working well. I find the tube too small for the price, but would still buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cannot seem to find this product Dear Neutrogena, I cannot seem to find this product anywhere stocked at Walgreens, Rite Aid or CVS in San Francisco or Sonoma County. I have been using this product for a long time and it is the only thing that helped my breakouts on my chin. I even tried to track it on where it was sold at a Walgreens and when i went to the store. They did not have it or stock it. Instead I had to buy the one that claims to eliminate the zits in 2 hours and I dont like it. This one is way better. I started to think that maybe you discontinued it but it looks to be on your website still. Please help to stock in San Francisco. I have been to 5 Walgreens looking for it here.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I really wish they would bring back the blue gel I want to love this but it will never come close to the blue, sore pimple relief gel that has disappeared from the market. If anyone from Neutrogena reads this, can you let us know why it was taken off the market, if there is anything comparable with the cooling effect, and if it will ever return?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Loved the old version of this This is ok but I loved the Rapid Clear 2-1 Fight or Fade Gel with MicroClear. The original version was a blue gel and then they had a orange gel. I thought the blue was the best but could live with the orange butI can't find it anymore and wondering if it will come back. It was much better for me and would love it you brought it back or can tell me where I can get it. My husband loved it as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oily I don't believe the negative comments to this product. They probably scammer from competitors and you would probably guessing I'm a forum / review seed from the company. But I'm not. I have acne problems since high school and after I gave birth in my early 30. I have been to many skin specialist and spent thousand dollars (in IDR conversion) through out those years. I forgot when I tried this product for the first time, I think after giving birth my Mum came from Berlin and brought me this and the face wash. My mum was desperate seeing my face adding my hormones during pregnancy since it gets worst adding that I already have many spots I used one tube, apply it in the morning after shower and at night before bed. My Mum notice the changes first, and later I found it too. Unfortunately I can't find this product in Indonesia. So I always ask my relatives abroad to bring me this product. I stop going to the doctor and just having regular facial without any acne in my face. Which is a heaven for me. 2 years later my relatives abroad unable to find it in the pharmacies. Some rumors in the internet said the company no longer producing it. I don't know if either the company or the competitors or even skin specialist/ doctors doesn't want this product to be easily get by customers. because the result is fascinating. I would suggest that apart from having a treatment applied to our skin, we have to really watch our food intake such as by avoiding seafood, spicy foods, diary products, many doctors that I went for gave me these advise. Now acne only comes when I have period or if I choose to be a bad girl by choosing chocolate. diary products and spicy foods. Apart from that I'm planning to have a laser treatment to have a better skin surface. Thank you Neutrogena, and I dont know if you really discontinue this product. If you do, that's very quite ashamed because Indonesia has a very very large market that would welcome you. Cheers, Anindya
