By far the worst skin care product I have ever used. I was so excited to try this product and it highly disappointed. My skin burns every time I wash it and my skin is peeling, which never happens. My melanin usually prevents this. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT.

The reviews about the terrible smell are absolutely correct. They have changed the product recently and the smell is HORRENDOUS. Even adding essential oil doesn't make it go away. I won't buy this product again.
I have always used this product, and you clearly changed the formula. I noticed the little tag that says new info on the bottle, but I don’t think much of it because it didn’t say new formula. I used this bottle for the first time yesterday and the smell made me gag. I tried putting my makeup on hoping the smell would dissipate. Nope. Now all my makeup brushes and sponges have this same smell on them. I ended up washing my face completely and going without anything other than moisturizer for the day. When I got to work, I asked one of my colleagues to smell my face and she could smell it too—after I washed my face! She agreed it had a urine type smell to it. Please fix this!

I bought this product today and used it for the first time so I do not know if it works, but I am not sure if I will be using it again as it has a strong urine smell. As I am sitting here writing this all I can smell is Urine! Yuck!

I just bought this product today to help with my acne and oily skin. I’ve only used it once, so I can’t tell if it works or not but I’m afraid I won’t be using it again! The smell is so putrid, it’s like I stuck my face in a dirty nursing home! It’s like a mix between formaldehyde and urine. I want to go wash my face again! Sorry neutrogena, I usually love your products.
