The active ingredient in the Neutrogena fading mask is 2.5% salicylic acid. The exact same ingredient you can buy in their wash, and every other freaking brand of acne wash out there.Originally Posted by Tierra
There is nothing special or different at all about Neutrogena's "fading" mask.
A total of waste of money, and that's why I didn't buy it!
I have however been seeing success with a 2.5% glycolic acid lotion, incidentally by Neutrogena. I've been doing a "test" of putting it on my forehead only (I recently started birth control pills) so wanted to see if it was really working. Guess what - after about a month my forehead is perfectly clear. I've never seen it this clear in my life. The rest of my face still needs help though, and I'm now I'm starting to put the cream on all over. The BP pills appear to have done nothing to help my skin.
