Neutrogena Rapid Clear Acne Defense Face Lotion: Dermatocare Reviews




Neutrogena Rapid Clear Acne Defense Face Lotion is full-face anti-acne treatment recommended for reducing oil secretions, black/white heads and open pores in combination to oily skin type.

Will it work? Neutrogena Rapid Clear Acne Defense Face Lotion has 2% salicylic acid along with two natural anti-acne ingredients cinnamon and Cedrus Atlantica Bark Extract. Salicylic acid has many studies to back up its efficacy in reducing the oil secretion and comedones. It works by seeping into the oil gland and loosen the plug that obstructs its opening. Thus, the reduction of black and white heads can be expected after continued use. However, it might not help in reducing red or pus-filled pimples as effectively as tea tree oil or benzoyl peroxide containing medicines. 

Acne has varied presentations and choice of treatment varies with the main 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
