Acne Stress Control - Product Description
The active ingredient in Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Stress Control is Salicylic acid, is an ingredient used in many over-the-counter acne medications. In addition to treating acne, Salicylic acid is also used to treat other skin disorders including dandruff, psoriasis, calluses, corns, warts, and more. Acne is formed when skin cells inside hair follicles shed too fast and clump together, plugging up the follicle and causing a pimple. Salicylic acid helps slow down shedding of the cells inside the follicles, preventing clogging. Unless your doctor advises you otherwise, people should avoid the other over the counter medications I list: sulfur, resorcinol, or benzoyl peroxide, while using salicylic acid, as it may be overly irritating

Acne Stress Control - The Bottom Line
In conclusion, Neutrogena is a trusted over the counter skincare line. Oil Free Acne Stress Control contains ingredients with proven properties to effectively combat acne. The website lacks information that is important when deciding to purchase. I would have liked to learn how stress actually brings about acne.
In addition the fact that the manufacturer does not provide any guarantee’s makes the integrity of the product questionable. However, considering that the product runs for less than $10, and it is manufactured by Neutrogena, which has proven itself as an authority in over the counter skincare, a trial of the product is warranted.
