NeoCeuticals Acne Spot Treatment Gel Review
The company claims it is its patented NeoHydroxy Complex combined with the acne fighter salicylic acid and pro-vitamin A that makes the product so effective. The product is said to be effective for both men and woman regardless of age or race.
Along with what the company calls its patented “NeoHydroxy Complex” the product also contains:
- Salicylic Acid 2.0%
- Acetyl Mandelic Acid
- Alcohol Denat.
- Butylene Glycol
- C13-14 Isoparaffin
- Citric Acid
- Propylene Glycol
- Retinyl -Vitamin A-
- Acetate/ Arachis Hypogaea -Peanut- Oil
- Tartaric Acid
Of all the ingredients listed, there is only one that has been proven somewhat effective in the fight against acne. Salicylic Acid has been known to work against acne, but it has also been known to irritate the skin and in certain skin types actually make breakouts worse.
Nothing is more frustrating than purchasing a product to help you with your acne and it actually makes it worse. Where the NeoHydroxy Complex is or what it is for that matter is not known.
How To Use
The directions for using NeoCeuticals Acne Spot Treatment are pretty cut and dry. First you wash your face, then dry it of course and then apply a small amount of the product to your fingertip. You then cover the affected area with a thin layer of the product and repeat this three times daily.
While the cost of the product is not astronomical by any means, it is only a 0.5 ounce tube so using it three times per day on affected areas means that the product probably won’t last very long before you have to buy more. This can make you go through several tubes before any results, if any, are seen.
This is probably why their guarantee is for 30 days because by the time you realize you want to return the product, you have already gone through a couple of tubes and you can’t return what you have already used.
NeoCeuticals Acne Spot Treatment Gel by NeoStrata uses the same tricks that many other acne products use today. They make up a fancy sounding patented blend of ingredients that is supposed to be cutting edge and then they prey on the desperate and unsuspecting.
The company touts its patented NeoHydroxy Complex, but fails to explain what it is or what is in it. But remember, just because the name sounds fancy, doesn’t mean that it is.
The ingredients list is nothing special, in fact the almost identical ingredients can be found in a number of different acne products that are available for sale not only for a lot less money, but available at retail stores as well.
