I am 43 and suffer from acne breakouts around my chin and nose area. I tried using the Neutrogena oil-free acne wash. Apparently I am allergic to something in the wash as my eyes swelled almost shut and I developed a rash around my neck and chin, with little bumps. I look like a wrinkle dog right now. I have used other Neutrogena products and have had no adverse effects with them, however there must be something in this that doesn't agree with me. So check the ingredient list.

Drying

I used this last year for two months but it was very drying. Because I have oily skin, I have a lot of acne, and it really didn't do much. It didn't prevent future breakouts out help the current ones. And I noticed a few more pimples forming on my face. And even now, I use moisturizers but my face is still very dry and even more oily.

Purchased based on a few magazine recommendations. Was really looking forward to using it as I have oily skin that causes a breakouts somewhat often. After using it once a day for about 3 days, and not changing anything else in my routine, I noticed my skin itched like crazy and developed small bumps, almost like hives. Also noticed that the skin on my cheeks suddenly developed dry patches, which I have never had before on account of my oily skin. Overall I do not recommend! My face should not hurt after using a cleansing product!

I noticed dry skin from use of this acne Wash . I thought the dryness was due to aging so I abandoned the product.

Mediocre

This product is okay, it did not cause me to break out or anything. It does dry out the face after continuously using it, but some moisturizer will help. I only use it on my back because I don't like using moisturizers on my face. It doesn't cause my back to break out more than it already does (I have pretty severe back acne.) But it doesn't decrease the amount I have either.

I bought this product to try it for the first time. After 2 days of use it gave my face a rash like a chemical burn. It was dry and flaky and burned to the touch. Was very disappointed:(
