Q: So is this a serum I leave on after washing my face or a cleanser (that I wash off with water) that I use in addition to my everyday face wash?

I wanted to try a new cleanser to help with my acne and skin texture, so I gave this a try and I’m really really regretting it. After only 2 times using it, my skin started feeling irritated, tight and dry. Today is the third day after I started using it and the dryness and irritation is just getting worse (even though I stopped using it since last night and didn’t wash my face this morning to give it a longer break). My face has also been extremely, almost unbearably itchy, feels warm to the touch and this morning I woke up with tiny little white pimples all over my face. I’ve tried to help my skin with my moisturizers but they also make my face burn from how irritated it is. I’ve never had this reaction from a cleanser before, and I’ve used many different ones over the years. I was using one with a higher % of salicylic acid before this one so I know SA is not the problem. My biggest skin issue is hyperpigmentation so I’m really nervous that this might make it worse and leave me dark patches where my skin is red/irritated right now. This photo I took doesn’t really do justice to how red my skin is but you can kind of tell and can also see some of the tiny white pimples I still have.

I recently switched to this face wash and I love it. Postpartum I needed something that would help clear up hormonal acne and weird millia type surface bumps. This has done the trick. My only con to it is that I wish they sold it in a bigger bottle. I use it twice daily and I’ve gotten about a months use out of it. Overall for the price I am pleased. I will note that I was using the acne control face pads in unison with these to clear up the stubborn acne and rough surface areas. I also typically exfoliate twice a week. Love Neutrogena products.

I used this product three times and it changed my skin so dramatically. It dried my skin out so bad and made my face feel itchy and sore. Putting my daily face lotion actually burned from how dry my face was. The product also left a bumpy rash on my arms and chest. The great thing about this product is 5 days ago I had very oily skin and after using this product I now have to ask the heavens for any type of holy oil. I stopped using this product two days ago and my face still looks like and feels like I used sandpaper to scrub my face. Thanks Neutrogena

My skin was doing just fine and I bought this for a new face wash to try and help with a few little breakouts. It made my skin SO much WORSE! I have combo skin but this face wash dried me out so bad and made me have a huge breakout all over my face.

Here because most of the reviews are promotional or from people who have no idea how to use this product. It is an ACTIVE cleaner. It is not a replacement for your daily cleanser. This is good a few times a week depending on how your skin handles AHAs. It’s formula is very close to the one my dermatologist provides which is why I purchased it. My skin is combo with bouts of cystic acne. I use it about 3- 4 times a week and it has really helped keep acne at bay and reduced the size of my sebaceous filaments on my chin. Test this on your skin before putting on your face if you have not used glycolic acid before since it is not for everyone. Results with this type of active take awhile, but this cleanser is awesome and noncomedogenic which is a huge plus. Also, the picture from the reviewer saying it broke her out is not a picture of pimples but rather of full/larger sebaceous filaments. Start slow with this and increase at your own pace. Your skin should not be dry/tight after using and if it is then definitely work to rebuild your moisture barrier before using any actives of any kind. Hope this helps!

This has worked great at smoothing out some rough patches on my face that many other more expensive products could not. I love that it’s fragrance free as well. I removed one star because I think the instructions could be better. I’ve used lots of active ingredients so I knew what to expect, but someone new to acids may have issues using glycolic every day straight out of the gate and may not realize it until it’s too late.

So far so good! I have used this product 4 times and it does leave my skin smooth. I think it’s going to replace my Clinique All About Clean Rinse-Off Foaming Face Cleanser with this product. I do have sensitive skin bc I had a bad reaction to a L’Oréal foundation. I definitely have combination skin.
