Amazing to use on some pimples/breakouts as spot treatment

Genuinely helps some breakouts so much. It can be irritating if you use too much or have incredibly sensitive skin, as it does have active ingredients. I have somewhat sensitive skin and i haven’t had an issue!

I’ve relied on Neutrogena’s on the spot treatment for years. It’s an excellent price and gets the job done. Even though I don’t use it frequently, I always restock it because it’s just plain effective.

i used this treatment for years!! still my go to for spot treating acne. it is great for those bumps that aren’t ready for pimple patches, or that the pimple patches couldn’t get. it has really little to no scent and is great for younger skin. the packaging makes it easier to use since you only need a little at a time.

Same BP% as Proactiv, so used briefly as a substitute. Obviously everyone's skin is particular, but don't make this mistake. I broke out like crazy. I would've been better off just waiting. I'm sure this works for some people, maybe if you use a Neutrogena regimen, but this was my experience.

Works very well. Works fast with no scent and leave no residue color. Small packaging. Felt the price was reasonable for treating what you need it for.

I absolutely love this stuff. If you are lucky enough to have any sort of forewarning when you’re about to break out, this little powerhouse does the trick. Deb a little bit on the spot exactly and it’s like it never happened. Whoever thought of this absolutely deserves a Nobel make up award. I carry one around in my purse and one in the bathroom during the summer months.

A worth it on the spot acne treatment

5 out of 5 stars
chanelcash1 - 2 months ago
originally posted on influenster.com
I was looking for a spot treatment that goes well with tretinoin. That meant I couldn’t use something with salicylic acid, rather I could use something with benzoyl peroxide. I saw the Neutrogena On The Spot acne treatment online, and there were tons of great reviews about it. So I tried it and it didn’t disappoint! I was really impressed with this acne treatment. One dab is all it takes and the next day, my acne would dry up. I also put it on acne that is about to flare, and it wouldn’t continue. I am really happy about the results. I also put it in the morning under my makeup, and the cream is not visible at all. I wish I had this magical spot treatment when I was a teen. This is really worth it.

I’ve been using this stuff for 10+ years. It’s a staple in my bathroom drawer at all times. It’s affordable and it actually works fast. I use it on spots that hydrocolloid patches can’t get, and I’ll put this on at night and by morning my spots are so much better.

Great at the start

It was effective at the start. It didn't sting my face nor made me break out even more but after a while the treatment just feels like a plain cream while I was still having more acne show up. I tried looking for the cause of it but the cream also didn't get rid of my acne anymore. Maybe it's just my skin

This stuff is perfect for an emergency breakout treatment. I can apply this at first sign of a breakout, and it is significantly gone by morning. There is very little product in the bottle, but goes a long way.

This product was recommended to me by my dermatologist. It is great for fighting acne, but moisturizer must be put on after each application. Otherwise, the skin will become dry and unmanageable.

Dries out acne. Unscented cream. The price is affordable. a small thick tube of cream. I used it for a while. You need to precisely apply the cream to inflammatory acne. and once a day.
