Review: Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Stress Control Giveaway CLOSED

Hola chicas I received this Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Stress Control product line for review purposes and I have been testing it out for the past 6 weeks.The reason why I have been trying them out for so long to make sure I give you my proper review and experience with this line. I am not a rookie to Neutrogena and have been using their products since I was 12. The last product line I tried was the Oil Free Acne Line in Pink grapefruit which really worked out well for my facial skin as well as for the skin on my body.

Here is the entire line photographed when I opened the box.
What it claims: Neutrogena Acne Stress control is designed to help you fight acne where it starts, while actively reducing the irritation and redness associated with breakouts. Acne stress control is so advanced , it treats acne before it emerges.

What it did:  I started with the cleansing facial pads and they were very moist and smelled like a high content of alcohol. I don't mind the smell of certain products but this reminded me purely of a cotton dipped in alcohol. I removed my makeup with these pads and used two. Instantly noticed a stingy feeling, the next day I also used to remove my makeup at night and had same effect. These remove the top layer of dirt and makeup but my skin did not react well to it. This is to be used instead of cleanser it claims.

The next product I opted for was the Power clear scrub which had a thick consistency. Its beads were not perfectly round they were more like a grounded up rock small minerals. I did not mind and actually liked this as they really sloughed away my dead skin cells around my nose and my chin. I used this twice per week then three times per week I liked it so much.

Next item on the list was the triple action toner. One thing I love it using toner as this is a product that when I started incorporating into my beauty routing in 2009 I noticed a big difference in even complexion. I normally use a witch hazel toner. This toner was very clean smelling and did its job even removed extra hard to reach dirt after cleanser. I experienced no irritation with this product although it contains some alcohol leaves your skin feeling very clean.

I proceeded to use the hydrating acne treatment. This was a very thin consistency and did not feel very moist or greasy as its purpose is to hydrate slightly but not leave the skin dewy or oily to kill the bacteria that causes acne.It felt soothing and dissipates quickly.

On and off in the mornings I would switch off between the foaming cleanser and the cream cleanser which was my favorite as it was a milder formula.Overall this was a good line as it dried up some of the active breakouts I had an kept my skin from getting too irritated and soothed the redness that some acne and oily skin treatments can sometimes do as the alcohol content is high. I would definitely recommend this to people who suffer from mild to severe acne whether adults or teenagers.

  26. Acne can affect anyone, but it is more common in teenage boys and young men. Acne seems to run in families. If your parents had cystic acne, you are more likely to experience severe acne yourself. microdermabrasion

  27. I have moles,scars and acne and I don't like them,, and I was just wondering if u knew any home remedies to remove them!! THANK U FOR UR TIME!!! osmosis skincare

  28. I know questions about acne have been asked a million times. But I have pretty severe acne, pimples and cysts, and I'm wondering what kind of treatments have worked for everybody else. I'm talking about either home remedies or store bought acne treatments that have worked for you in the past. And don't say apply toothpaste, I've tried with terrible results. Any ideas? homemade skin treatment

  29. in the past, i regularly used the neutrogena stress control cream cleanser. it felt very refreshing and cooling to the skin, but it was terrible at removing my makeup (especially around the eyes) so i had to use another facial wash afterwards. My dermatologist recommended Citrus Clear, because I wanted a natural product to help with the acne. i was pleasantly surprised to see my face and not a raccoon staring back at me in the mirror!! if it can remove my mascara and eyeliner, i know it removes a lot of other impurities too. i have mild acne and since i've been washing with Citrus Clear twice a day (anymore than that will dry out your skin), i've noticed significant improvement in my skin.
