I like to use Neutrogena Rapid Clear Spot Gel when I have a small break-out. It comes in a convenient 15 ml tube that I can tuck away in my make-up bag. I dab a little on my acne break out and then apply my make-up as usual. It doesn't affect my make-up in anyway. I do notice a slight change after four hours but it works really well over a couple of days and the break out usually disappears. I find that it doesn't dry out my skin.
Unfortunately, this product didn't work well for me. I had a few pimples that were starting to form that I needed to take care of ASAP..so I came across this spot gel and figured I'd give it a try. After washing my face clean, I put a small dab of this on the pimples that were starting to come to the surface. Within seconds the gel started to dry and it immediately felt like it was working. I was super excited but then realized that the gel didn't do much but dry out and irritate the skin around the pimple. I was expecting some dryness of course because of the benzoyl peroxide...but I guess it just didn't want to work for me. Will try it again on my next erupting pimple to give it a second chance.
Great for those 'pop-up-out-of-nowhere- surprise blemishes the night before a big event or presentation. Apply just a bit overnight to the trouble spot and it's significantly reduced by morning!
I would have to say this product is very effective.
The tube fits directly into my palm and is the size of L'Oreal's Juicy tubes lip gloss.
The reason for the small tube is that much isnt needed to work, and is inteded to treat single blemishes, not the whole face. The micro clear technology causes this medication to penetrate the skin faster.
After washing and cleansing my face I apply a tiny dot of this stuff to any blemish i have, sometimes I apply more throught the day and its okay because it doesnt dry out my skin.
