Neutrogena is known for making a number of face washes and lotions. Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash seems to be fairly decent. This product is made for people that have very oily skin. If you don’t have oily skin this will dry your skin right out. Many of the customer reviews I saw said this. On average I would say about 60% of customers who used this product said it was an okay face wash. Few people said it cleared their acne altogether though. I saw a number of consumer reviews that said is stopped working for them after about 2 months of use. The product contains an okay formula. It just depends on how much you like Salicylic Acid.
Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash works by using a strong chemical called Salicylic Acid. You will find that most acne face washes use this product. Salicylic Acid is known to be able to kill the bacteria which is thought to be the main cause of acne. The problem is Salicylic Acid can also damage your skin and cause dryness and redness. Neutrogena uses a few other ingredients in this product that attack acne in a similar way, by killing the bacteria. A couple of the ingredients in this product also help to try and keep your skin healthy and strong.
