Helps Stop Acne Before It Emerges

Oil-Free Acne Stress Control 3-in-1 Hydrating Acne Treatment with powerful MicroClear technology gives clearer, ultra-soft skin by working in three different ways: treats acne even before it emerges, hydrates and softens skin, and soothes breakout redness and irritation. This silky non pore-clogging formula is so light it absorbs quickly, leaving no greasy residue on your face.

Make Acne One Less Stress

Its breakthrough MicroClear technology is clinically proven to boost the delivery of acne medicine, speeding treatment deep to the source where breakouts begin. What's more, naturally derived skin-soothers green tea and cucumber help soothe redness and irritation, leaving skin looking and feeling soft and stress free.

Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control products are designed to help you fight acne where it starts, while actively reducing the irritation and redness associated with breakouts. Acne Stress Control is so advanced, it treats acne even before it emerges.

Breakout Less, Stress Less

While treating acne at the source is the key to long-term prevention, addressing the visible signs of irritation can be just as important in getting the great-looking skin you want. Using naturally-derived skin-soothers specially selected for acne-prone skin, including cucumber and green tea extracts, Oil-Free Acne Stress Control products leave skin feeling soft while actively reducing breakout redness and irritation.

MicroClear Technology

Help outsmart acne with MicroClear, an exclusive technology that is clinically proven to boost the delivery of acne medicine to help unclog congested pores. With powerful dissolving agents, MicroClear breaks though oil and dirt and helps clear the way for acne medicine to get to the source of your breakouts, even before they appear.

How to Use

Cleanse the skin thoroughly before applying medication. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.

I must have tried every acne medication known to man in the last few years. I am in college now and thank goodness I have my skin under control but very unfortunately this was not the case during high school, and as a result I was a pretty miserable and withdrawn teenager, to say the least. I did the whole proactive thing, did not work for me in the least bit. If anything it made my skin worst. I have friends who it did work for, so I guess it just depends on the individual.

I tried a prescription medication that I can't even remember the name of right now but what I do remember is it making my face completely flaky and red, basically a year-round sun burn that was also extremely painful. In my senior year of high school, I started using this Neutrogena face wash and tea tree oil based acne treatment of all things; TreeActiv+ Tea Tree Oil Acne Solution for Advanced Acne Treatment ★ All Natural Acne Spot Treatment ★ Blemishes Gone or Your Money Back!.

Maybe I was using too many different medications on face or maybe I just grew out of the acne phase, but regardless I would do anything to go back to my freshman year and give my freshman pimple faced self a simple concoction of tea tree oil and Neutrogena face wash. I have used this particular brand of Neutrogena for quite a while now but I have also used their foam acne wash and it worked just as well.

Since I started washing my face each night with the face wash and applying the tea tree oil before going to bed, I have not had one major break out in the past three years. Not one! This is coming from a girl who had acne that could be mistaken for big gross looking blisters all through high school. I love Neutrogena and I love tea tree oil and if you are struggling with acne, once you try them I know you will love them too.

I have chronic acne to such a degree that, without the help of several prescription topical and oral medications, I would be unable to keep my skin clear no matter what OTC products I used. This is a light, silicone-based moisturizer that, because of the silicone, broke me out terribly. Nearly everything else I have ever used, including straight vitamin E oil, has been better than this product. All it needs to make it completely toxic to breakout-prone skin is titanium dioxide.

I LOVE this stuff. I've had acne prone skin over the years, especially when I was a teenager but even as an adult if I wash my face with the wrong product I'll break out a little bit. This stuff glide on smooth. No heavy rubbing in. Did not irritate my skin and I noticed a difference the next morning (I use it at night).

This is the best stuff out there, includes anti-oxidants, gentle on skin. It is unfortunate Neutrogena stopped making this.

As I've gotten older, I've had issues breaking out along the chin. Normally, the issues occur in the same areas every month or so. Other treatments and cleansers didn't seem to keep the issues away. I purchased the product on Amazon, and after receiving it in October 2011, I promptly started to use it. At first I used it morning and night and experienced no adverse effects, and when I didn't break out any more I was pretty impressed. I've cut back to once per day (evening) given the lack of break outs.

The product really does hydrate your skin. Other spot blemish products I've used have tended to dry out the skin around the break out and well didn't look all that nice.

I would definitely buy again and again. Love it!

This product worked rather well on my very prone acne skin. Used it am and pm. Doesn't dry your face out either. Well worth the cheap price.

I tried this product and really liked it. this product has worked well for me. It clears up my acne. It also moisturizes my skin and makes my skin soft. it contains salycic acid. it does not contain benzoyle peroxide which has bleached my towels, clothes, and hair when i have used it. this product has helped treat acne for me.
