This is yet another potentially effective anti-acne product from Neutrogena that could have been a great option for skin if it didn’t contain alcohol (which is drying, irritating, and causes free-radical damage as well as stimulating oil production at the base of your pores) and witch hazel water (which is mostly alcohol). Neither of these ingredients is effective at helping to fade marks from acne faster. If anything, the irritation and damage it can cause can disturb the skin’s healing process and immune response, which means the marks you’re trying to fade may actually last longer. Note that the inactive ingredients are presented in alphabetical order due to this product’s status as an over-the-counter (OTC) drug.

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.
