Neutrogena Rapid Clear 2-in-1 Fight & Fade Gel: Dermatocare Reviews




Neutrogena Rapid Clear 2-in-1 Fight & Fade Gel FIGHTS acne with the help of salicylic acid and FADES the dark mark with the help of Glycolic acid. It should be used either as the spot treatment or in sparing amount on the skin studded with multiple black/white heads.

Will it work?

Yes, it might help in reducing the black/white heads. It works by drying out the oil secretion of pimples with the help of alcohol base and salicylic acid 2%. Besides acne clearance, this gel can help in reducing the chances of getting post acne marks. However, it might not help in reducing red or pus-filled pimples as effectively as tea tree oil or benzoyl peroxide containing medicines. 

TIP: Acne has varied presentations and choice of treatment depends on the type of acne lesion you have. I have mentioned the best acne cream that should be used for mild, moderate to severe acne in this article, Best Pimple Or Acne Remover Treatment: Dermatocare's Pick

For which skin type?

Neutrogena Rapid Clear 2-in-1 Fight & Fade Gel can be used for all the skin types. You can even try it as a spot treatment for dry skin, provided it is used sparingly only over the acne. If you notice dryness and peeling with this spot gel, discontinue use and see a doctor.

Is it safe?

Yes, it is devoid of significant toxic chemicals.

Will it irritate sensitive skin?

Yes, it might irritate sensitive skin owing to the alcohol base and many irritating ingredients.
