Made my acne prone skin worse.
I've always had acne-prone skin (mainly in the T-zone and on my cheeks.) In addition, I was always oily in my T-zone as well. I decided to try this because I've heard such great things about it. I used it for 2 weeks and I noticed that my acne became so much worse. As soon as I applied it to my face with a cotton pad, my face immediately began burning and began to get red. This happened EVERY single time I used this product. After I stopped using it, my face didn't break out as much. I would not repurchase this product nor recommend it to anyone.
Pretty Good Toner.
I had tried the Neutrogena Alchol Free Toner and that did nothing to my face. My face seems to like Alchol so I will continue to use this toner. It really cleans my face and even though it burns when I have dry patches I can easily use a moisturizer and the burning goes away. It really reduces my acne and controls my oil fairly well. The smell is a very strong cucumber/alchol smell but you get used to it.
This is a great toner. I like how strong it is--great for taking out excess oils and soothing any active acne, not so great if skin is very dry. It really helps bring my skin back into balance after being very stressed or simply after treating with cleansers and masks.
My sister uses the Acne Stress Control line to ease her law-school related skin troubles and I can tell it helps her skin out a whole lot during finals or on a night where her workload has intensified.
It's not my favorite toner out of the ones I've tried, but it does the job.
Strong but effective!
I love this toner. I switched from the Origins toner to this one because of price and good reviews. This works great and drying my skin and preventing breakouts. It is also very effective at reducing the redness of current breakouts. The only problem I have is the smell. Now, I don't if toners are supposed to have strong scents or not but this one really bothers me. I love the product but wish they can find a way to tone down the strong scent.
A Must-Try for Acne-Prone Skin!
I've tried many a toner in my day and still struggled with blemishes, uneven skin tone, and excess oil. That was until I incorporated Neutrogena's Acne Stress Control Triple-Action Toner into my routine!
It has a delightful, yet subtle, cucumber scent that doesn't linger on the skin for long. It doesn't burn or sting the skin, and it effectively clears up existing acne while preventing further breakouts. Not only does it keep my skin clear, but it (along with the other products in my routine, I'm sure) has helped to even out my skin tone and reduce my facial redness. I've noticed my oily skin isn't as oily, though I wouldn't call it oil-controlling.
I almost immediately noticed an improvement in my skin once I began using this product, and I'm not on my third bottle. It continues to deliver after all this time. I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for an inexpensive, yet amazing toner.
A Must Have!
I bought this when I was browsing in Target. And I was looking in the skincare aile for cleansers and toners... And so I came across this, I was first debating if I should get the other Neutrogena alcohol-free toner, but at the time I was breaking out(time of the month) and so I just thought it would make sense to actually have a toner that will clean my skin and tone it at the same time. I tried it when I got home it was okay, started using it atleast 2x a day by day 3 my face was acne free, it even minimized the old scars I had. Now every time I break out, or even when I see it first start coming out I'll rub it on my face and the next day you start to see it goin down. This is how well it works for me! I'm serious about having this, I love it soo much I have to use it everyday sometimes twice when I see myself breaking out.
Work wonders for me!
I am a student doing a double major so you can only IMAGINE how much stress i go through + i work, part time though. throughout i had ok skin but in college my skin started breaking out. & it was like not even regular acne that everyone it gets it was some type of weird under the skin acne i couldn't pop them b/c it didn't have a head! & you couldn't really see the bump but i def felt it's pain!! & than even if i don't touch my sensitive skin left HEAVY scarring all over my face. I was getting desperate & trying everything. Then i came across this & i thought i would try it since it got good reviews on totalbeauty.com & girls this stuff works like a charm. it took about 3 weeks for it to completely work though but i did see result in the first week. The thing is a lot of products out there help the acne that has already formed but don't always do a good job in preventing. & this truly sticks to what it says b/c i have not seen anything appear new on my face yet. i decreased the dosage to just once in the morning. At first it does leave skin a little tight & dry so apply moisturizer right away. but this is very gentle. i would know b/c i have extremely dry & sensitive skin!
PS. I recommend this product but i am not sure how much of a miracle worker this may be for people that have heavy, severe cases of acne. Good luck!
