Neutrogena On-the-Spot Acne Treatment

Lately, I have been breaking out like crazy. And because I have combination skin, it only appeared on my t-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) since these areas tend to be oilier than the rest of the face. Normally, I would let it gradually fade out but this time I was in no mood to walk around with pimples on my face. Hence, I went to the local CVS and grabbed a tube of Neutrogena On-the-Spot Acne Treatment. I decided to give it a try because of the many great reviews I've read online.

So this is how the tube looks like:

It's a very small tube but you only need a little bit to apply on the acne spot.

Price: $6.89 at CVS
Available at many drugstores

Some Highlight of What It Claims to Do:
Neutrogena On-the-Spot Acne Treatment has been clinically proven to provide maximum strength effectiveness in fighting acne, while being gentle to the skin. Maximum strength effectiveness with less irritation, won't dry out skin. It goes deep down in the pores to kill acne bacteria that cause pimples and helps to stop new ones from forming. Relieves redness of acne pimples and overdrying of the skin (

PROS: the pimples decreased in sizes and the redness were a lot better than the night before. The healing time of a pimple greatly depend on each individual and the sizes of the pimples. For example, I have a pimple that required more than one application before it heals completely; while there's another which only takes one night to healed.

CONS:  Sometimes it helps decrease the size of the pimple but sometime it doesn't. I've tried it on newly developed pimple as well as old ones.  The result is still the same.  I need something that's 100% each time. 

Will I repurchase? Most likely not

  5. Benzoyl Peroxide tends to dry out your skin, so make sure that you keep the skin moisturized too. :)

  16. If the tiny tube is too expensive, you guys should check out this link
    it is where I get my Benzoyl Peroxide since the Neutrogen is too pricey for me and the quality is just as good.

  17. It has been proved that Neutrogena On the Spot Acne Treatment gives total relief from the acne and skin problems. Pimples, papules and scar marks can also be healed by using this treatment.

  18. Really acne is a major problem in teenagers which destroy their beauty. To get rid of this problem they apply many kinds of beauty tips and also prefer skin treatment. Everybody desires for a clear and glowing skin.

    I want to share my opinion with you about how to fight against acne. I have been on accutane for 3 months and a week. Acne is still bad. My derm says it will be better within the next month. (that's also what she said last month.)Side effects aren't too bad. You can prefer this if you want bast results.
