I was in Target a few weeks back, frustrated with my acne and looking for something to help.
I’ve been to a dermatologist that had suggested many different products for my face, but the products my dermatologist suggested just dried out my skin and gave me even more acne.
I was looking for an acne product that would get rid of my acne scars, prevent new acne and get rid of the current ones I have. Often times, acne medicine companies have kits or sets that go for high prices containing three or more products, and they cost over $30! As a college student, I was looking for something inexpensive.
I found this Neutrogena product for under $6 at Target and decided to give it a try. I was running out of options and was desperate to get rid of my acne. This product promises to: “Fade the look of past acne marks, clear present breakouts and prevent future breakouts," and I can say with confidence that it really does!
I’ve used this product for about two weeks now, and my skin has changed dramatically. My acne scars have faded a little bit, I’ve had very few breakouts and my skin feels smooth. The product says to use it twice a day, so I usually wash my face in the morning in the shower and at night after I was my makeup off and go to bed.
This daily scrub works like any normal scrub. I would recommend taking a nickel-sized amount of product into your hand and work it into a lather with a little bit of water. I should warn you, though, to not scrub too hard, because it can make your skin blotchy afterwards if you do.
I recommend this product to any girl that’s struggling with acne!
