This review is from: Neutrogena Rapid Clear Treatment Pads, 60 Count (Misc.)
So my sister introduced me to these. She’s always had pretty clear skin, with an ocacional break out, maybe around that time of the month, but she was never really acne prone (like me). All of a suden, she was covered in cystic acne. Huge pimples wich even left marks on her once beautiful clear skin. Needless to say, she was histerical about this. Tried every over the counter cream, lotion, you name it. Nothing worked. She had to go to the doctor and ended up using Retin-A. Wich is the only thing that worked, but at a 5 dollars a tube it was hefty. Not to mention it worked, but didn’t clear it 100%.Well, I don’t know what possesed her one day and she decided to give these a try, eventhough nothing over the counter seemed to work. Well! what do you know? Not only did these work, but it worked better than the Retin-A. Even the marks went away. Her face became totally clear. Having paid 5 bucks for the Retin-A, this was a steal.
She got me on them and they worked great for me as well. Although I didn’t use them every night, but every other night. I no longer use them, because ever since I started to use organic jojoba oil as part of my cleansing routine, and under my moisturizer and mineral make up, I no longer break out. So I don’t need them. But if I needed them for any reason, I would definitly get them again. They may not be for people with regualar, or dry skin. But if you have oily skin and/or problems with cystic acne, give these a try. You might be in for a nice surprice. If they dry you out, follow treatmente with a few drops of organic jojoba oil. That should do it.P.S My sister recently discovered that the reason for her suddern crazy break outs, was ovarian cysts. Her new dermatologist took one look at her when she walked in the door and immediatly said “you have cysts!”. This condition also caused her to gain weight, and it caused her hair to start falling out. So if you have any of those symptoms, have you gyno check you out

Works Well for My Hormonal Acne (Due to PCOS), August 11, 2011
Most recently (@ 26yrs) i was diagnosed with a hormonal/metabolic Syndrome called Poly- Cystic Ovaries Syndrome (PCOS).
One of the LOVELY side effects is Acne….
I Feel Like Tried EVERY PRODUCT ON THIS MORTAL EARTH!!!!
Went through 3 rounds of Accutane (AGE 16, 20, 25), have tried prescription/topical creams such as Retin-a , duac, Oral anti-biotics, sapronalactone ETC .
OTC Products clean-n-clear, origins, liz earle, L’occitane, AcneeFree, Actonel, Clerisil, bensoil peroxide, clinique, sulfur soaps…. anyways- you get the picture.I STILL Continue to try products, and yet always seem to come back to this one.1) For deep/cystic hormonal acne this helps but does not “fix it” but it will help it dry up a bit. (for usually makes the swelling and redness go down)
2) Helps control oil (been using products with Salicylic base for years but this is the only one that i would put on my T- Zone to help prevent breakouts)
3) ABSOLUTELY DOES speed up REDNESS and post acne scaring (i find the after zit scars fade way quicker than when i don’t use it)
4) IS NOT a miracle product and cannot be expected to take the place of everyday hygiene (YOU STILL NEED TO WASH YOUR FACE)
5) Will help with occasional non-hormonal acne but when i use it for that i have to be diligent and persistent
It is expensive for what it is and how much i use it- i was actually looking on amazon to see if i could buy it in bulk! even at walmart its around 9-10 dollars for half an oz.
It does tend to separate when you don’t use the product quickly or you get to the bottom of the tube (see my tips for more on that).
Tip(s) I use:
Take a shower or Soak a washcloth in warm water and put it on your spot your going to treat if you have an unbroken (underground) zit.
It will help the product penetrate and helps to dry up the area.
Use one tube at a time till its completely gone, keep it at room temp, shake it and rub it in well when your towards the last 1/6th of the tube
Those cons don’t matter so much to me considering the fact that some of the other treatments i have tried have been WAY more expensive.
The results i get with this product are worth it.
It works for me.
