Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control 3-In-1 Hydrating Acne Treatment Review
Neutrogena's Oil-Free Acne Stress Control 3-In-1 Hydrating Acne Treatment helps clear mild acne and blackheads using a 3-pronged approach. First, it uses powerful MicroClear™ technology to help the key acne medicine, salicylic acid, unclog congested pores and penetrate deep into the skin to treat acne before you can even see it. At the same time, the unique formula contains moisturizers that work to hydrate and soften skin. It is light and absorbent and also has calming ingredients (like green tea and cucumber extracts) to reduce redness and irritation.
You can purchase it online or at local drugstores for about $7.
We give Neutrogena’s Oil-Free Acne Stress Control 3-in-1 Hydrating Acne Treatment an A- because it is an affordable and very effective treatment for mild acne and blackheads. It also includes moisturizers and soothing ingredients to streamline and simplify your nightly routine. While we highly suggest this OTC treatment, we felt we had to deduct just a few points because it contains fragrance and coloring agents that may irritate sensitive skin and it doesn’t fade acne scars.
The Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control 3-In-1 Hydrating Acne Treatment has received great reviews from customers on Makeupalley.com (4/5 out of 442 reviews), on Buzzillions.com (4.3/5 out of 211 reviews), on Drugstore.com (4.4/5 out of 130 reviews) and on Amazon (4.4/5 out of 54 reviews). Since salicylic acid is a BHA (beta hydroxy acid), it is best used for the treatment of mild acne and blackheads. Paula Begoun, a skincare and cosmetics expert who conducts reviews on products using scientific research, feels that Neutrogena has formulated their best BHA acne treatment yet since this version contains 2% salicylic acid at a pH of 3.4 (ideal for effective exfoliation), and comes in a nearly weightless silicone base that includes antioxidants and anti-irritants. For an inexpensive acne treatment, it doesn't sound like you can go wrong with this product.

Works for awhile
Review submitted: 2013-07-09I started using this product when I was in High School. I kept seeing ads on the T.V. and decided to try it out. After about a week or two, I noticed results. However, it did dry my face out. After a year or so of using it, it didn't work as well and I wasn't seeing the same results. I now use Neutrogena Acne Stress control 3-in-1 hydrating acne treatment lotion and Neutrogena Acne Stress Control Triple-Action toner. I feel these products work better for my skin type and I love the results. I would recommend the Neutrogena acne stress control products to anyone. They smell great and you can feel the dirt and grime getting out of your pours.
Best for Your Face
Review submitted: 2013-07-06I have tried many many acne treatments but none have been better than the one I am using now. I rarely have breakouts and when I do, the treatment easily takes care of them. It doesn't leave your face dry and itchy. It is just perfect for what I need. I only use it once a day to prevent from any side effects happening, so its perfect. I never have any issues with this product. I would recommend it to anyone because it has been very helpful to me. The only thing that I can say I do not like about this product is the scent, it just smells like chemicals and I would probably enjoy it more if it smelt like something enjoyable.
