Moisturizers -Neutrogena -Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream - Night

on 1/23/2018 1:22:00 PM


Sorry to write a negative - but the list of ingredients HAS changed: retinol is now the last ingredient. Virtually none at all, it seems. One amazon reviewer from 2016 reports it has .025 % retinol, also noting that the maker did not want to answer the question, and she found out on her own. And L7997's review here November 2016 notes that retinol is already listed last, whereas before it was much higher on the content list. I have no break outs, no irritation from it and I do like the consistency - lighter than many night creams, and the no fragrance. I buy it off amazon. I had noticed the packaging had changed (the neutrogena box it comes in is now smaller.) That's fine - but the formula dumbing down is not. I'd been buying it for a few years and had noticed it seemed less effective of late. Could be just aging, but that may not be the all of it, as other reviewers have had the same criticism of the product. I don't remember seeing any hint on the part of neutrogena that the product had been changed. Customers had to paw through the fine print to find out. Not cool. I wish I had realized this before ordering another tube of it recently. I will probably use what I have as a hand cream now.

Primer/ Corrector -Neutrogena -Shine Control Primer

on 1/22/2018 10:35:00 PM


This stuff really controls oil. I'm extremely oily, but there's just a hint of shine on my nose and chin after 10 hours, and only a moderate slick feeling when I touch my face.

I honestly don't know how Shine Control Primer would work out for most skin tones, because I'm very pale, and it's noticeably white on me. It's not a bad look, since the stark whiteness neutralizes some of my redness and blends in with my face, which you can read by in the dark, but I really don't think it would look right on deeper skin tones. Unless you were wearing complete coverage foundation over it, maybe? Bad Neutrogena! Make more shades!

The cap is annoying to remove and replace because it's so wide, yet flat. This primer is fragranced, kind of a fancy hotel soap scent. Why?

Gels/Soaps -Neutrogena -Body Clear Body wash

on 1/21/2018 1:45:00 PM


Terrible product. I suffer from acne on my back and this made my breakouts sooooo much worse. It literally tripled the amount of bacne I had. For me this did not work and I do not recommend!

Cleansers -Neutrogena -Hydro Boost Whipped Foam Cleanser

on 1/20/2018 10:43:00 PM

Not sure what Neutrogena was thinking with this one. There is no added benefit to adding fragrance to a skin product. Better off using Clean & Clear or Cetaphil. I will not purchase.

Moisturizers -Neutrogena -Hydro Boost Water Gel


Just bad. Tried a sample of it and of course broke out everywhere (I have severe cystic adult acne and everything breaks me out, and this was still bad). You read hylaronic acid and think moisturizing, but this "moisturizer" is literally just a ton of silicones with a very, very small percentage of hylaronic acid. It's like putting foundation on your face and leaving it there without washing it off (most foundations are silicone based). Ingredients matter, y'all, and silicones are not designed to have any long term moisturizing effects on the skin, but rather act as a barrier between your skin and the elements. That's why this product could have been good if they had combined the silicones with more quality moisturizing ingredients, but as it stands, it's kind of a rip off. Of course it makes your skin feel smooth at first, but it doesn't have any actual moisturizing properties. Save your money.

The jar is pretty, though, and I'm fine with the smell.
