Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeps My Acne Under Control I haven't had clear skin ever since I was 11. Ever since then, I have struggled to find a product that gives me clear, less oily skin. I love On the Spot because it gives me just that. And I'm not someone who has minor acne. If I sweat even a little, I'll end up with a pizza face. On the Spot doesn't give me complete 100% clear skin, but my skin would be 10 times worse without it and it has truly given me the clearest skin I've had ever since turning 11. Now I can walk in public areas and hold my head high and not feel ashamed and embarrassed because of my skin. I have normal skin now. Thanks Neutrogena.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish it Still came in Tinted I quit using this product a few years ago when they quit making the tinted version....ever since I have battled my skin breaking out. I went back to using this vanishing cream about two months ago and my skin is 99% clear all the time now. It would be nice if they would start selling the tinted version again, bc with it I didn't even have to wear a foundation which I felt helped keep my skin from breaking out. I did try the Neutrogena clear complextion foundation but my skin still breaks out with it...have to use a different brand which I'm sure this website would not like me to name!!! Anyhow...this is a great product especially for bumpy whitehead type acne.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Redness in skin and burning I have a VERY sensitive skin and the only product that helps me is Neutrogena. I use their cleanser, face wash, moisturizing cream and make up remover. I have not faced any problem and my skin always looked clean. Last night, before i went to bed, i used this cream on all my dark spots and acne on my cheeks. My skin was burning for 2 mins or so and then i fell asleep. I woke up the next day and found that my cheeks are TOO RED and it burns too. Not sure what has caused it. I am NOT going to recommend this for people with sensitive skin, although the other range of products in Neutrogena which mention (sensitive skin) is all good. This one is a BUMMER.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Changed formula I have been using this product for more than 2 years and it's the only thing that has helped prevent breakouts, until recently when they changed the formula without mentioning it. Now it makes me breakout. I'm very disappointed and will have to search for a new product to use. The new formula seems more creamy in it's consistency (I'm thinking they added grease or something similar which is causing my breakout). Very sad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it WORKS My review is based on its effectiveness. I apply this at night only and I use a large amount over my problem areas such as chin and forehead. Like many products it does not work overnight but give it a few days and it will work. I remove my makeup and wash my face gently then pat dry. Then i apply and go to sleep with it. It worked clearing my skin almost and it is drying but i've learned all effective acne products are drying. The cons this product is the price for how much product you get .75oz and since i apply alot it only last like 1 week. In the morning i use an oil-free moisturizer. I dont want to irritate my skin more by using this in the morning as well. maybe this is why some of you are suffering from extreme dryness.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from New Formula I've been using this product for over 10 years. Neutrogena failed to mention on the box that they changed the formula. Needless to say, I dislike the new formula because it it burns my skin and got red. It also contains Laureth-4 which is highly comedogenic. I much prefer the old formula.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works But Not The Best Ever since I turned 13 , iv'e had annoying acne all over my forehead. When my older sister saw this , she purchased it for me while she was in New York.I use it as an at-night spot treatment but I like that it is invisible , so i am able to wear it in the day as well.It is cheap and not as irritating to my sensitive skin as many other benzoyl peroxide products are , but , it definitely is drying! Be sure to use a good moisturizer afterwards. In conclusion , it did work somewhat in clearing my acne but I'm sure there are less drying products out there. I'll still be repurchasing until I can find something better though. BTW , is this product sold in Canada?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever! Beats out Proactiv! I know every bodies skin is different...... For me: I've used Proactiv for about 15+ years. As the one product of theirs that I was using is getting harder & harder for me to find. I decided to venture out & search for something new & something easier to obtain. I got this because it has the same amount of active ingredient as what I was using with Proactiv. OMG! It actually works better for me!!!! Nothing has ever worked better than Proactiv, but this does!!!! (I use On-The-Spot all over my face in the morning & Rapid Clear just on my T-zone at night.)
