On-the-Spot Acne Treatment

Overview

Neutrogena On-the-Spot Acne Treatment is meant to be applied locally (i.e., only to a specific/constrained part of the skin). Although the product may have moisturizing properties, the area of application is normally so small that its moisturizing impact is unlikely to be significant. This is why we do not provide a moisturizing rating for such products.
