Skin Type- Combination to Oily; Sensitive Skin – No
I have been using this cleanser for a pretty long time but I completely forgot to review it. As it has been pretty much used up and will survive only a few more uses, I thought of reviewing it for you all. Read on to know how this fared for my skin type.
Price – Rs 600/- (approx.)
Clinically proven to rapidly reduce size and redness of stubborn acne in just 1 day.
Formulate with maximum strength Benzoyl Peroxide, the acne medicine dermatologists recommend for clearer skin without a prescription.
My Experience with Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cleanser:
The rapid clear range comes with the orange detailing which I like personally as it looks summery to me. The tube packaging is simple and user friendly. The flip top cap comes in handy to me, especially during shower. The details about the product are mentioned on the back of the tube including the ingredients.
The texture of the cleanser is weird. It is like a slippery cream that refuses to get applied on the damp skin. The quantity required is more compared to regular cleansers is a con in my opinion as using it on a daily basis will finish it up pretty soon. There is no pungent smell to the product thankfully; I was expecting some chemical fragrance but it smells pretty faint and agreeable.
The effectiveness of the product is something that depends on the skin type and acne type. I use it around “that time of the month” and I have seen noticeable improvement in reducing the pimples and zits. Firstly less number of zits popped and secondly the ones which appeared got calmed down faster with the use of this cleanser. Both the aspects are impressive in my opinion. But if you have dry skin already you might feel an uncomfortable drying sensation which might end up irritating the all the more. Also it feels irritating when it gets near the eyes, which is a huge con in my opinion; for me it a love hate product!
