Anyone tried NEUTROGENA multi-vitamin facial treatment with success??

Hi, I have had acne since I was 13 and am now 19. My acne has been severe in the past, but has calmed down a fair bit since I've been using Diane-35 for 2 years. Anyway, i have been using Neutrogena Multi vitamin facial treatment for a week now--and was wondering if other people have had good results with thsi product? The pack says that it significantly fades blemish/acne marks and smooths out skin tone in 2 months. I've only used it for a week- but so far no results. I'll keep trying though..
Any replies would be great.

Re: Anyone tried NEUTROGENA multi-vitamin facial treatment with success??

I used it for a little over a month so far , saw some encouraging results, but they seemed to have stopped after a month. I am still continuing to use it as a night time treatment and in the AM I use Neutrogena Healthy Skin. My skin does look a lot better, but I also use an exfoliating soap so the combination of the 3 products have really helped with scarring.

what kind of exfoliating soap do you use? i recently tried a homemade scrub that someone on the board told me about a tsp of honey and sugar and it made my face so smooth!

Hi, regarding the neutrogena multi vitamin treatment-- aren't you supposed to be using it during the day? I wear it during the day(under makeup)-- i wonder if it stops working as well on my skin since its with makeup. (but i need to wear makeup cos my skin is scarred)
I thought about using it at night- but thought the lotion would rub off on the pillow more than absorbing into my skin.
What is Neutrogena healthy skin?-- i haven't heard of it. Is it a moisturiser? And also I'm scared to use an exfoliating soap cos i still have some acne on my face and thought it could irritate it... but i am interested in what u r using

I use a papaya enzyme(papain) exfoliating soap, the scrub you mentioned should work fine. But, the papain enzyme in papaya is very powerful and is excellent for removing dead skin cells. Ive seen much better results using this soap than from using the numerous varieties of scrubs in the past.

HI, I believe you can wear the multivitamin lotion whenever you want. I used to use it everytime after cleansing my face. The lotion should absorb into the skin really well, infact on my skin it soaks it up so fast that sometimes it seems I might have to reapply. As for the pillow situation, the multivitamin lotion is really light and I really doubt that any should rub off on your pillow.

Neutrogena healthy skin lotion contains AHA's and vitamins and is primarily helpful with evening out skin tone,help with scarring and is supposed to bring a healthy glow to your face. I've heard before that the healthy skin lotion and multivitamin lotion are almost the same(ingredient wise), with the exception of the multivitamin lotion containing acne fighting ingredients(salicylic acid etc...). The healthy skin lotion has a much thicker consistency and personally feels better on the skin, whereas the multivitamin is very thin and light and more suited to be worn under makeup(by the way I dont think makeup has any negative effects when combined with the multivitamin, if its non-comedogenic) Regardless, Ive seen promising results.

I use a papaya enzyme soap, look at the previous post for details. I believe exfoliation(if not too harsh) can actually benefit acne, by letting acne products go deeper into the skin, also it removes any oil/sebum buildups.

I was really excited when I found it a few years back and used it for nearly a year then realised it did nothing.

Hey, how come you kept using it for so long.. it must of been doing some good things!? Through this forum, it seems as if the new L'oreal PURE ZONE 3 step range is supposed to be really good. I have just bought two of the products:
*Deep exfoliating gel wash
*Anti regreasing moisturiser..
i didn't buy the 'clarifying lotion' yet cos I wanted to check first whether the other products reacted well for me. So far, it seems very soothing on the skin and leaves it smooth.. dunno if it'll keep the zits away though!
I dunno if its a good idea to use teh multi vitamin facial treatment while i use the PURE ZONE-- i might stop using the multi vitamin lotion for a little while, esp as I see little results.
