      The health of my skin has always been important to me, especially since I’ve always gone to war with acne throughout my life. Even now, in my thirties, I still have the occassional, but manageable, breakout. Unfortunately, both of my teenage sons have suddenly hit puberty and are suffering the same acne difficulties I went through when I was their age. They both have the same troubling t-zone oily skin, and we’ve tried a variety of products that claim to not only treat the existing acne, but prevent future breakouts, and unfortunately, we haven’t found one that successfully does both. I’ve always been a fan of Neutrogena products. My acne breakouts have been manageable, even as a child, and Neutrogena is soft enough for

      my skin but still works well enough to reduce the appearance of acne. It’s not a miracle cure, but it helps.

      Then I found Neutrogena oil-free acne stress control 3-in-1 hydrating acne treatment. It’s about $10 for two ounces, and it doesn’t really go far, so I was hoping it would work pretty successfully. It’s not the most expensive acne treatment out there, but it’s still not exactly the cheapest either. It contains the 2% salicylic acid, which is what most acne treatments contain, but I liked the idea that it also contained cuccumber and aloe. My mother used to go on and on about the benefits of these two things, and I remember seeing her, at least three times a week, with cut cuccumber pieces over her eyes to help reduce the swelling and tired look of under-eye circles. I have to say, it worked for her, because she looked to be in her thirties when she was well into her fifties. I can’t only hope to have the same results when I’m her age.

      Now both me and my children have particularly oily skin, so even things that say they are oil free can be very heavy on our skin depending on the other ingredients. Aloe was the one ingredient I was worried about, because it does seem to have a heavy consistency for skin, but it’s also incredibly healing, so I was willing to give it a shot. I tried it on myself first, for ...

      a week, before letting my kids have a go at it. I didn’t want to give them anything that might exasberate their heavy puberty acne problems. There was a slight fragrance when I first applied it, and I’m not a fan of fragrance in my skin treatments. Lotions for the body… fragrance is fine, but not for facial cleansers. on more sensitive skin than mine, this might be a problem. But, I have to say, the product worked for me. After using it for a week, I saw a dramatic difference in my skin. The acne cleared up considerably, and even my skin tone, which is often discolored, seemed to even up a bit. It was another instance in which Neutrogena didn’t let me
      down.

      However, with that said, I have to admit that my kids didn’t have quite the same result. Their acne problems are much heavier than mine. I may get a few spots here and there, but they have concentrated problems around their foreheads, noses and chins, and after a week using this, I only saw a mild improvement. We’ll still keep using it however, as I’m willing to give it another two or three weeks to try to clear up the problem some more. I’ve still been using it, and I’ve noticed that, for myself, I haven’t had further cases of breakouts to the extent I used to, so I think it’s a good preventative measure, but again, I’m not sure it’s quite as effective on more serious cases.
