This creamy cleanser contains 2% salicylic acid as its active ingredient and also contains a fair amount of glycolic acid, which could have been helpful, but in a cleanser these ingredients are rinsed down the drain before they have a chance to do much good, so they’re essentially worthless in this formula. Labeling this cleanser “soothing” is a mistake because Neutrogena included menthol, which is one of the least soothing ingredients around, not to mention that it has zero benefit for acne. Note that the inactive ingredients are presented in alphabetical order due to this product’s status as an over-the-counter (OTC) drug.
With naturally soothing aloe and chamomile, this cleanser's rich, creamy formula powerfully clears away breakouts and blackheads and visibly reduces redness caused by acne. This cream cleanser calms irritation so your skin looks clearer and feels healthier.

Neutrogena is one of few brands that have an equally large presence in both the U.S. and in Canada. Unfortunately, many of the formulas and product names that Neutrogena uses are not interchangeable between the two countries, a fact that has been brought to our attention by our astute Canadian readers (who make up about 10% of our Beautypedia readership). In an effort to clear up a lot of the confusion surrounding Neutrogena Canada products, The Cosmetics Cop Team has done research in Canadian drugstores to determine the ingredients and product names as they appear on Neutrogena's Canadian packaging.

Please note that if a product does not appear on this list, it means that, to the best of our knowledge, that product has the same name and formula in the U.S. as it does in Canada. You'll find the reviews for such products under the main Neutrogena brand. That overlap means Canadian readers may find they have to switch between both Neutrogena and Neutrogena Canada to locate the product review they're seeking, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

In some cases the differences between the U.S. and Canadian version of a Neutrogena product is only an ingredient or two, and in other cases the entire formula is different. Despite The Cosmetics Cop Team best efforts, there are no doubt products that have been overlooked on this list. As much as we would like it to be comprehensive, we are restricted by what is on store shelves at the time we conduct our research. If you have any additional information about Neutrogena Canada products, we encourage you to contact us using the link at the bottom of the product's review page.
