Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne


My all time go to face wash for my very oily skin is Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne by Neutrogena. It visibly reduces redness and pimple size overnight and with use every other day, pimples are gone within the week. 

The active ingredient is Benzoyl Peroxide, which can be found in pretty much every acne fighter from creams to gels, masks and spot treatments. However what makes it the most effective is the amount within the wash at 10%. The most I have ever been able to find in Canada is 5% and that was in a spot cream.

Aside from the fact that I can only find this product in the U.S., there is a couple of side effects that I will warn you about. One is that it has a burning tingle. I do not recommend leaving this product on for more than a few seconds (about 15 seconds). Be especially cautious if you have a break out.  Further the other warning I would like to state is that it will, no matter how long you leave the wash on your face, turn it red. Obviously the longer you leave it on, the redder you will be. The redness does subside and some dryness may occur, but the results show for them self. This is why I only use it every other day unless I have a severe acne break out.
