“Beauty is being comfortable and confident in your own skin”

Rapid Clear Acne Eliminating Spot Gel: Salicylic Acid, the enemy of acne and its ilk, is found in almost all skin treatments. Since I have very sensitive skin that tends to react negatively towards the active ingredient-doing more damage than good, I have had a very hard time finding a solution to my minor acne problems.

Then I turned to Neutrogena and its products, starting with an Acne Cream Powerwash. When that proved unsuccessful, I went to a topical cream that guaranteed that it was gentle on even the most sensitive skin. Not my skin! However, I was willing to give Neutrogena one more try, so when I saw the promise that Neutrogena Rapid Clear Acne Eliminating Spot Gel visibly reduces breakouts in 8 hours, I had to take Rapid Clear Acne Eliminating Spot Gel up to the challenge. I had just come back from a week’s trip without using any acne medication and needed quick results.

The Pros and Cons of Eliminating Spot Gel:

Ever-so-cautious of my infamous reaction to any and all acne medications, I put a thin layer on a small area of my face to see how it would react. With the cream-based acne products, my face tends to swell within five minutes of its application, due in large to the high concentration of salicylic acid. After five minutes, I didn’t notice a burning or stinging, so I went ahead and applied the gel over the entire affected area. This is the first acne medication that I have used that has not caused burning or redness. To me, this is monumental, as I’m certain that anyone else who has sensitive skin will find once they use this product.

Was it as rapid as I had hoped? I didn’t look at a clock eight hours after my first application of the gel, but I don’t think that it made much of a difference that soon. Rapid Clear Acne Eliminating Spot Gel very greasy upon application like I’m putting chicken fat on my face. However, I think that’s a small drawback and beats feeling like my face is being dipped into a lake of fire each time I apply acne medication.

Eliminating Spot Gel

I’ve been using the medication for two weeks now, and have noticed a significant difference in how my face looks. While Rapid Clear Acne Eliminating Spot Gel hasn’t eliminated every imperfection, most of the acne around my cheeks has cleared up, and the larger pustules have greatly reduced in size and are almost dried up. My acne has dried up without drying my face up, as the medication’s Lake of Fire counterparts have done.
