Cleansers -Neutrogena -All-In-One Makeup Removing Cleansing Wipes

on 5/19/2017 9:37:00 PM

Bought these because they were on special a few years ago at CVS. They stung; did not remove makeup well; and they irritated my skin. I don't wear long lasting or water proof makeup. I have combination skin, tending towards dry, but with an oily T zone. I don't have sensitive skin In that I tolerate BHA, AHA and retinoids well. But, I am prone to milia and hives. I think I ended up using these wipes to clean makeup fallout from inanimate surfaces. I used to buy a lot of Neutragena products (for years) and then came to the epiphany that they don't really work for me. Currently I use CVS dupe of Garnier micellar water, Bliss lid and lash non oily gel eye make up remover. I used to love Almay non oily eye pads, but they seem to sting now.

Shampoo -Neutrogena -Anti-Residue Shampoo

Used this for years when I was in school. I used a lot of hair product then, and this clarified and stripped the hair squeaky clean. It also overly dried out the hair and necessitated a deep conditioner so that I could untangle it. Back then, it wasn't considered highly scented, but I suppose it would be considered so now. However, I personally dislike popular shampoo scents today (thinking of Aussie Moist). I have normal Asian hair and I dye it at home with Clairol nice n easy out of a box. No hair issues except some scalp itchiness after using aussie moist for three weeks (which my hair loved). One or two washes with Nizoral took care of itchiness. Incidentally, Nizoral, a medicated shampoo with a warning built into the instructions -- use once every three to four days for no longer than eight weeks -- was less stripping and drying than Neutrogena. When I need a clarifying shampoo today, I would probably buy anything but Neutragena. Though I have bought a lot of Neutragena in the past, I realized that I am not a fan of the brand.

Skincare - Body -Neutrogena -Neutrogena Original Formula Fragrance Free Transparent Facial Bar

This is an old product. I think I used this in high school when I tried to get my mom to purchase something other than Dove bar. The times she purchased this for me, it didn't help to clear my skin and it was drying. It made my face feel tight and I was much oilier then, My mom didn't like it because she felt that it left a film and melted in the shower very quickly. When I went away to school, I used cetaphil. Today, I have much older, combination skin, tending towards dry (except for my T zone) and prone to milia and hives. I rotate between a CVS dupe of Garnier micellar; Cerave hydrating; an unscented glycerin liquid soap and a few other things including a Paula's choice hydrating foaming cleanser (which doesn't foam; is overpriced and is otherwise unremarkable). This soap would be too drying for me today.

Note: Despite having bought a lot of Neutragena products for years, As it turns out, I am not a fan of the neutragena brand.

Sunscreen -Neutrogena -Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 55

I kept buying this for a few years when I first realized I needed sun protection, not sun tan lotion. I am NC 30-35, combination skin, tending towards dry, prone to milia and hives. This stung the skin; caused break outs (I generally don't break out too much), bumpiness, and shine. It was NOT matte. It was not cosmetically elegant. And, if you have the misfortune to sweat, it burns the eyes. One summer, i tried to pass it off to my very pale husband who has great skin and who is bald; he avoided it and started to wear a lot of hats. (We are not beach people and he does wear long sleeves, so he can get away with this somewhat).

I transitioned into Ombrelle (white cast, thick texture), Paula's choice spf 30 (too expensive and somewhat unimpressive); then Roche posay (tinted for face) and the other one in the big tube for body (the latter of which has to be rubbed in well) ; then the orange tube of Kiss My face with hydrophasia (no idea what that is, but recently the tubes have gotten much smaller and the price has gone up a bit); and Biore aqua (inconvenient because you have to order it on Amazon and shipping takes a while). All of these have been better than the Neutragena. will try out a few suggestions below.

Lotions/ Creams -Neutrogena -Norwegian Formula Body Emulsion

on 5/19/2017 7:33:00 PM

This product has been around for a long time. I used it for years. . .a long time ago. I remember it had a distinct scent, left a film and was relatively dense textured for a lotion. Although I didn't necessarily have problems with it when I used it, my mind boggles at the fabulous reviews it gets here on MUA. It was silver and less heavy than Lubriderm or Moisturel. But, I stopped using this when I found something called Complex 15 which was much lighter but still moisturized. When I could no longer find Complex 15, I rotated through a variety of moisturizers. I now have combination skin, leaning towards dry. Currently I use cerave cream for winter (I dislike Cerave lotion), Paula's choice moisture boost, Curel hydro therapy gold bond and Vaseline intensive care advanced repair unscented and a few others. When I overdo BHA, AHA or retinoids, I have been reverting to aquaphor or the CVS dupe.

SENSITIVE SKIN PLZ DO NOT TRY!

I don't have a sensitive skin but this crap burn me out so bad lol. I could totally feel the burning the second i put it on my face and i don't know what the heck was happening. Tried it several times and yep still burn!

2nd problem, it is WHITE. W-H-I-T to the E. This is a very chemical sunscreen rather than physical so leaving white cast is not a wanted effect.

3rd problem: very chemical smell, and the smell barely goes away.

4th problem: Are the scientists behind this blind or am i blind, why they put "lightweight" and "dry-touch" on the packaging when it feels super thick and wet and sticky and shiny on skin?? I can feel it clog my pore as whenever i sweat i can see sweat rolling on my face like rolling on a nylon film LOL , and yes I sweat all the time after putting this on, like literally this blocks out not only sun but also AIR. It doesn't let my skin breathe :p

I know everyone has personal opinion and I feel bad for this negative review, but honestly, I won't recommend it to anyone. I have ace-prone skin and i don't want to give it more burden by wearing this sunscreen all day long.
There are way more better products out there that give you a good protection layer, shine the least without irritating your skin. Try Bioderma Photoderm MAX Aquafluide SPF 50+, Avene Mineral Ultra-Light Hydrating Sunscreen Lotion 50+, Elta MD UV Clear SPF 46 (fewwhh long names!), those r good options for combi-oily + sensitive skin, maybe not the most budget-friendly sunscreens but all r very lightweight, absorb quickly and give you comfortable feeling with necessary ingredients for an optimal protection. I will pay extra money if what i get is a satisfying product.


Please redo a serious research on your product, Neutrogena!

Cleansers -Neutrogena -All-In-One Makeup Removing Cleansing Wipes

I just can't rave enough about this product. I've been buying the Neutrogena Makeup Removing Cleansing Wipes for almost two years, and been through a LOT of packs.
With only one wipe I can remove all of my makeup including of course waterproof mascara. Wipes are really wet and although they leave your skin with an oily feeling, it dissapears few minutes later.
I recommend this product to everyone I know is into makeup wipes.

Moisturizers -Neutrogena -Hydro Boost Water Gel

This has a nice texture & smell similar to Aloe Vera gel but that's about it. At first it seems nice & soothing but minutes later the effect is gone, this does not hydrate dry skin. It even stung a bit when I applied it!? Would not recommend this at all.

UPDATE: On a whim (due to a supermarket sale) I bought another version of this labelled “GEL-CREAM” and it seems to be way better! This one hydrates beautifully without leaving a sticky residue. Works great under makeup too. I keep mine in the fridge to enjoy a cooling effect.

Foundations -Neutrogena -Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint

on 5/14/2017 12:55:00 AM

foto

As a tint, this product will NOT cover anything. It will, however, enhance your (presumably near-perfect) skin in the most natural way, with less pigment than a tinted moisturizer or a BB cream.

The cream is thick and not runny, but the barely-light coverage is not buildable. The finish is not dewy; it's very skin-like. This lightweight formulation is perfect if you are seeking the French barely-covered face.

If you tend to cake on the concealer (i.e., brown protruding undereyes) or foundation (forehead wrinkles, naso-labial lines), you may not have these issues with this light formula.

Honey worked on my NC42 skin.

Update: This oxidizes on me!!

Sunscreen -Neutrogena -Sheer Zinc Face Dry Touch SPF 50

Gaack- this is stuff is just awful! I just bought this in preparation for a trip to Colorado that was going to involve lots of time outdoors hiking, etc. Turns out this is the worst sunscreen I've ever has the displeasure using. It is thick and pasty, super-greasy, hard to spread. Tried it on my face- yuck, oil slick and ghostly white, would not rub in. OK, I'll use it on my body- again would not rub in and left horrid white marks on my cuffs and pants hem. Who on earth did Neutrogena test this junk on - how dare they call it sheer or dry-touch! Oh, and the best part is that it gave me some nasty zits. Frankly, I'm p*ssed off that I wasted my $$ - threw it in the trash.

Sunscreen -Neutrogena -Clear Face SPF 60

foto

At first I loved this as it didn't break me out, and the light reflectors seemed to help even my skin tone (especially when applied under makeup). After about 2 weeks of using this product, it started burning when I applied it and causing redness. The redness would subside after about 45 minutes, but sometimes the burning would return when exposed to bright sun. I did some research and found I am not the only one who experienced this, and that many people experience burning when using sunscreens containing oxobenzone and avobenzone and do better when switching to a zinc based sunscreen. Oxobenzone itself is an endocrine disruptor! Neutrogena sunscreens have been rated as some of the worst when it comes to toxicity! The information is out there. I am returning this sunscreen and going with a healthier option (that also won't burn my face!).

Cleansers -Neutrogena -Deep Clean Facial Cleanser

This is a great cleanser. If you use waterproof liner or mascara use a milky cleanser first and follow up with the deep clean. Really good stuff and doesn't dry out the skin. And has a bonus tiny bit of hydroxy acid!
