Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Spot Gel Reviews
It has already been a few months since I’ve used this product for treating my acne breakouts. But back in the first week of using it, I’ve already seen a huge difference right on the third day. This gel-based acne treatment glides easily and flawlessly on my face without leaving any residues. Just apply a thin layer, cover the entire affected area, and rinse it off. That’s it!
Some use it twice a day just like any typical facial wash. But as it is preferably used for overnight, I leave it on until the next day for better results. It is an intensive acne solution that works well to fight off stubborn acne breakouts and marks! And if you’re wondering how this treatment can help you with your acne problems, I have listed here the five amazing benefits!
It fights off acne breakouts with the key ingredient, Benzoyl Peroxide.
The utmost benefit that I have found out about this acne spot gel is the Benzoyl Peroxide as the key ingredient. As per recommendation of my dermatologist, Benzoyl Peroxide works to eliminate acne-causing bacteria and this over-the-counter treatment is worth a spot on my medicine shelf.
It isn’t just like any ordinary facial wash but an acne medicine that can fight acne breakouts. Acne treatment products can contain 2 to 10 percent of Benzoyl Peroxide. But with this acne spot gel from Neutrogena, it contains 10% that makes it even more effective for treating the skin and make it much clearer.
I have sensitive skin but I didn’t experience any irritation. But I think it is still much safer to consult your dermatologist or try only a small amount first if you do have sensitive skin.
It reduces the size and redness of stubborn acne in just within 2 hours.
Neutrogena claims that the effects can potentially be visible in just within 2 hours. It can reduce the size of the acne and the redness as well. I’d say that it is an awfully amazing deal, especially for those who are desperately searching for an effective treatment like me.
As I have tried, it did reduce the redness within 2 hours which is quite impressive. But regarding the size reduction, I can’t tell for sure. However, I’d guess it still depends on the type of the skin or the application procedure. But for its ability to diminish the redness in just within 2 hours, that’s definitely a big plus!
It glides smoothly on the face as you apply.
It is an ounce of gel as described, but I think it looks more like a cream or paste because it actually comes with a white color. Nonetheless, applying this to the face isn’t too harsh and it just glides smoothly as I cover the affected spots on my face. It only takes a few applications and washes, one on the morning and before bedtime. Within a week, I have noticed a huge difference in my skin, even my mom can tell!
Take note, only a thin layer should be applied. If it goes too much, I noticed that it turns really white, dry and flaky, more like a dried toothpaste. Hence, I always make sure to target the acne spots with just a subtle application. But with a small amount, it surely does the magic!
It can also work on sensitive skin.
I have sensitive skin and it’s pretty much tough to find an acne product that won’t trigger any reaction or irritation. But Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Spot Gel does the incredible job to combat acne. As previously mentioned, I regularly apply it on my face in the morning and before bedtime and let it sit overnight. Prior to applying it, I cleanse my face first and put on a moisturizer afterward. Sometimes, I put on a face mask to hydrate my skin as it causes dryness after application.
It dries out but not excessively. I did experience some excessive dryness when I used it during winter, but other than that, it’s all okay. Neutrogena has already called it out beforehand so I somehow expected the dryness. So for those who have sensitive skin, one application daily would be ideal and the number of application can gradually increase to two or three if needed or as prescribed.
Just like most acne products, this acne treatment can bleach fabrics and clothes. So if you’re using this, make sure you keep all your beautiful pillows and favorite shirts away!
If you are looking for a great solution to combat acne breakouts and severe acne problems and you’re desperate for an acne treatment, you can give Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Spot Gel a go! As carefully detailed, it provides benefits that can target acne spots, make the skin clearer, reduce and eliminate acne ultimately.
But just like using any product, proper use and precautions should be followed, especially if you have sensitive skin. If you’re going to try an acne medicine for the first time, it is better to consult your dermatologist first.
