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 (CVS.com).
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
