Product Description

Size: Pack of 1

OntheSpot Acne Treatment is a spot acne treatment that provides maximumstrength results without drying out your face. It goes deep down in pores to kill the acne bacteria that cause pimples and helps stop new ones from forming. Some medicated spot treatments contain high doses of Benzoyl Peroxide that can irritate skin, causing redness and dryness that can make acne worse. OntheSpot Acne Treatment contains just 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide, yet it provides the same maximum level of effectiveness with 70% less irritation. Fight acne and get maximumstrength results with an acne spot treatment that won't dry out your face.

I am in my mid 40's, so my acne is a spot here and there. I've tried other products, but Neutrogena's On-the-Spot Acne Treatment, Vanishing Formula, has worked the best for me. It didn't dry out my skin and since it was a vanishing cream, no one knew I was using an acne product. I would recommend this product, since it worked for me!

I used to suffer from cystic acne,it took a lot of treatments to fix it.I occasionally get acne once in a while during my period.
I have tried a ton of spot correction creams,this is the real deal and works the best.
It is best to use it at the onset of acne,within 2 days the acne is gone with no scarring.
I recommend it to everyone I know.

This product is great. Make sure you use it after cleaning/washing your face and DO NOT be exposed to the sun (the biggest reason why your skin may get burnt and itchy). apply a thin layer twice a day and make sure you do not use any foundation during the treatment.

I bought this for my son. His face was so bad I though I had to take him to a dermatologist. This was my last hope and boy does it work. If you buy it for a teenager, you have to keep using it until your hormones stablize. It does not sting or burn or cause any redness, so I highly highly recommend it!!!!

Having used almost every product on the market from my teenage years on to today, I have to say that this product compares to prescription products. I have used ProActi and AcneFree and this one is better than both's benzoyl peroxide with the ProActiv and AcneFree being equal.
My only drawback to this product is that the cream does not disappear like the prescription product that I have used. The prescription product that I used had a more clear appearance and felt more like a cool liquid that had some viscosity. It does smooth on clear if you take care to use as little as possible. And it does require a good amount of rubbing to get it to clear out.
The most important aspect is the effectiveness and this is the best product I have used. It only takes one application to see results! This is a far cry from the days of Clearasil and Oxy where you would see drying and peeling before you saw results. In this case the next day you see the redness reduced! That alone makes this a very good product. One of the biggest problem with zits is that they can be inflamed and red and when that happens it does not matter if you apply a covering type of cream because you can still feel the swollen painful effect.
What also makes this product so good is that it does not dry your skin up like all the other products do. Even ProActiv and AcneFree can do this.
I was using AcneFree and eventually my acne improved greatly. It was time to switch to something more mild and so I switched to Neutrogena's Pore Refining Cleanser and Pore Refining Toner. With these two products, my acne is still stable and with the use of the On the Spot Acne Treatment cream I now have a workable solution to my acne with less drying. Yes, my acne is a little bit worse than I had with AcneFree but now my skin does not feel as dry and rough from the peeling effects. Overall, I recommend this product along with the other Neutrogena cleansers.

This actually worked for me! Overnight! I started developing closed comedones and inflammatory pustules all over my forehead for some reason. I tried different cleansing products, vitamin serums, retinoid, and high end creams all with no improvement for 2-3 months. I thought it might be allergy to something I was eating so I cut back on inflammatory foods such as diary and meat. Nope, the acne still remained, sometimes it would get better for a day or two, then comes back more inflamed and red.

Finally, I give into actual acne treatment, this benzyl peroxide 2.5%. I wanted to start with the lowest percentage possible because I just don't like medication/chemicals all that much. I bought it during the day before work so I dabbed some on a small part of my forehead before work to test out to see if I have allergic reactions or anything. By the end of my shift, my pustules became painful ( they weren't before), inflamed, and hard to the touch. Honestly I was so scared that the cream had made my acne worse. But I decided to give it another chance so that night, I washed my face thoroughly, popped some of my pustules, and applied the cream all over my forehead. It started to sting a little bit but not that bad. In about 30 minutes, the redness from squeezing the pimples faded dramatically. The next morning, everything shrunk by about 50%. Even the painful and inflamed ones. I am so happy! However, like many other people who have mentioned, there is a bit of flaky skin and itchiness the next morning. I didn't put any crash or lotion on my forehead because I didn't want anything to interfere with the acne treatment, but I think I'll try to add some cream to it to see what happens. I would recommend this product but definitely try it on a small area of your skin first, and just give it a little more time!

My two teens really like this stuff. They are both battling acne and this product from Neutrogena seems to work pretty well at keeping down the acne. It has been one of out go-to products and we keep purchasing it because it works.

This is really great stuff, the kids (teens and young adults) and I both use it for occasional breakouts and it works wonderfully. You dab a bit on your face over the breakout area, it vanishes completely and has virtually no odor. You will notice a difference by the next day and most pimples clear up in a couple of days. I buy the multi-packs and use the subscribe and save option.

Recommended - this is great stuff!
