Neutrogena Rapid Clear 2-in-1 Fight & Fade Toner Review: 2 Good Reasons To Buy

neutrogena rapid clear 2-in-1 fight & fade toner review
This toner combines salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and MICROCLEAR technology to help remove the appearance of post-acne blemishes and decrease outbreaks.

What makes this cleanser unique?

1. MicroClear technology

Salicylic acid in Neutrogena Rapid Clear 2-in-1 Fight & Fade Toner and sebum dissolvers are combined in a synergistic microgel combination using MicroClear technology to deliver medicine to the source — deep within the follicle.

In clinical studies, products with MicroClear technology effectively cured mild to moderate acne by reducing non-inflammatory and inflammatory lesions over time and preventing the formation of new lesions. Improvement in inflammatory acne lesions has been reported to begin 24 hours after therapy, with results improving over time.

MicroClear technology in Neutrogena Rapid Clear 2-in-1 Fight & Fade Toner is a one-of-a-kind combination of three complementary ingredients:

  • Phospholipids are emollients that protect the skin and make it feel softer.
  • Lactate molecules aid in the breakdown of sebum.
  • Benzalkonium chloride is a cleansing agent that targets the source of flaws.

Additional benefits

2. Salicylic Acid 2%

Most over-the-counter acne remedies use salicylic acid, one of the most common ingredients. Some professional dermatology products include a higher concentration of it. Salicylic acid, derived from the willow bark tree, is frequently quite successful in treating acne, especially when combined with other acne therapies.

Salicylic acid in Neutrogena Rapid Clear 2-in-1 Fight & Fade Toner is a beta-hydroxy acid, which works as a mild chemical peel does.

It works by unclogging your pores and eliminating the acne-causing sebum trapped inside. Salicylic acid also helps reduce inflammation, which causes your acne to appear so red. This means it fights acne from the inside out, attempting to destroy the source of the problem.

Oily skin and superficial acne are best treated with salicylic acid. The drying component may be too harsh for persons with dry, eczema-prone, or sensitive skin.

According to the manufacturer, dry, burning, and generally irritated skin in the areas of application are some of the most common side effects of salicylic acid; however, these side effects are more likely at the beginning of therapy. If they persist or worsen, you should see a board-certified dermatologist discuss your skin’s reaction.

Salicylic acid found in Neutrogena Rapid Clear 2-in-1 Fight & Fade Toner causes sunburn by making your skin more sensitive to the sun. Although you should always protect your skin from the sun, it’s extremely vital to restrict your sun exposure when using salicylic acid and apply and reapply sunscreen.

How to use

  • Before using this product, make sure your skin is completely clean.
  • Apply a small application to the entire afflicted area one to three times each day.
  • Start with one application per day to avoid over-drying the skin, then gradually increase to two or three times per day if needed or as prescribed by a doctor.
  • Reduce application to once a day or every other day if uncomfortable dryness or peeling occurs.

Neutrogena Rapid Clear 2-in-1 Fight & Fade Toner is great addition to your acne skincare routine.
