Masks -Neutrogena -Hydro Boost Overnight Gel Mask

on 5/23/2018 5:51:00 AM

My pores get clogged so easily, my skin needs no excuses to kick off at the best of times, so I have to try and be careful with what I put on it.
So, the overnight mask! I don’t know about anyone else, but I get anxious when putting something new on my face before bed, the great unknown of what I will wake up to!!
This product come in little pods with a film lid for what I presume is meant to be single use. This is where the issue lies for me…When you apply it to your face, if you really slather it on (I’m guessing you are meant to from the pot size) it doesn’t dry! I could not use a full pod even if I tried, it would be ridiculous! A good thick coating for the first few minutes makes my skin feel all yucky due to the consistency. So off to bed you go, and you wake up with little bits of rolled up product EVERYWHERE.
One pot now gives me about 4/5 uses, I keep it sealed up. I have yet to see any benefits after a couple of weeks of on/off usage, it didn’t break me out however. I much prefer my normal night cream, far less messy

Eye Makeup Remover -Neutrogena -Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover

Not exactly oil-free, left a slightly oily feeling on my eyelids. Not very effective in removing waterproof mascara, required leaving the cotton pad on each of my eyelids for at least a minute and even then it didn't remove all of my mascara, always had to go back and forth.

I can't believe that the rating for this product isn't higher. I love it! I've purchased it countless times and will continue to do so. I've tried both the scented and fragrance-free versions and they don't irritate my sensitive skin at all. I'd estimate that it removes 90% of my makeup (I only use one wipe at a time, if I were more generous and use a second wipe I'm sure it can remove more makeup). However, for eye makeup I still use Neutrogena's eye makeup remover just to make sure.

I switched to this cleanser from spectro gel only for 3 days and my skin has improved tremendously....!!! My skin has been so dull and rough and bumpy for the longest time and i thought its the coming of age..my skin is also super sensitive so i just sticked with spectro gel for the longest time cause everytime i tried something else my skin would reacts....i duno why i suddenly decided to reach for this and i m so glad i did!!!!! Only 3 days my skin is much smoother with less rednesss...alot of the bumps have dried up and gone...my nose feels much much smoother...black head are noticeable decreased....i guess the specteo gel was just too gentle that it never cleaned off the dead skin cell off my face and also covers them with a residue which really congested my skin and cause more irritation cause my skin cannot breath...i m beyond amazed!!! Highly recommended!!!

Sunscreen -Neutrogena -Ultra Sheer Face Sunscreen SPF 60 with Helioplex

on 5/22/2018 4:23:00 PM

Cosmetically - probably the worst and weirdest sunscreen I've ever tried. Pilled up like crazy (with or without products underneath), left white stains on everything, and MAN did it burn my eye/ upper cheek area. The smell is also way too perfumey. Weird white, pilly, greasy mess. I would rather use a standard banana boat sunscreen on my face.


Moisturizers -Neutrogena -Oil-Free Acne Moisturiser - Pink Grapefruit

I usually like products from Neutrogena but I absolutely hate this one!
I wanted to love this moisturiser - the texture is so nice, the smell is nice, the package is nice, the price is nice...
When I first applied it, I felt my skin burn and sting... I decided to shrug it off, thinking it would eventually stop. That stinging feeling isn't too bad, nothing I can't deal with, but it became very annoying since it happened every single time after applying it. It also made me break out quite a lot.
Going to throw this moisturiser in the trash right after I post this review.


Sunscreen -Neutrogena -Sheer Zinc Sunscreen Face Lotion SPF 50

Sheer? Don't be fooled. I've started calling this my "mime makeup." I get a giggle out of putting this on at first because when I smear this thick, paint-like sunscreen on my face at first, it looks like I'm applying warpaint.

I'm glad for the sun protection and everything, but not the fact it turns my face a different tone than the rest of my body. I'm pretty yellow, this ends up making me much more pink due to the blue hue, on top of the fact it leaves a cast. The only way to reduce the cast would be to apply less than you actually need to get SPF 50--which defeats the point of wearing it.

Foundations -Neutrogena -Nourishing Long Wear Makeup Liquid Foundation

Love the texture and coverage of this product.

This would be my HG foundation if it weren’t for these two things:

Please re-engineer the package so that there is a pump or some way to dispense the product. I actually hurt my hand banging the bottle against my palm in order to get out some of the foundation, which happens to be very thick.

Also, the lightest shade is too pink. Please introduce a shade for us ladies on the more golden side of the spectrum.

Wow, never thought I'd love a moisturizer this much. There are very few moisturizers I use up, most are still half full. I have bought this several times, it's that good, and oh so light, cool, feels unbelievable.

Broke my skin out. At first I thought the patches of pimples were because it was my time of the month, but then I realized... I never break out with itchy pimples all over chin and cheeks during my period... Would not recommend.


Gels/Soaps -Neutrogena -Body Clear Body Wash - Pink Grapefruit

I've been struggling with mild back and chest acne for as long as I can remember, tried countless different products and nothing has worked as well as this. I tried Phisophex, Cetaphil, Tea Tree acne wash, benzoyl peroxide wash, Mario Badescu AHA body wash, Paula's Choice, you name it... This is seriously the only thing that works for me, which means my skin responds best to salicylic acid. It's not sold in Australia so I have to buy it online, but I'm so happy I finally tried it after reading mixed reviews because my back acne has reduced dramatically since using this, and I don't think it's just a coincidence. It lathers a lot so a little goes a long way, it smells great and it's not drying. When I'm stressed I pick at my back, and now I find that there is very little to pick at! I've always been iffy about Neutrogena because it's cheap, but it's so so relieving to know that this actually works for me. I dry brush my whole body and my back before I have a shower, and then wash with this every day. I'm so happy it works :) I finally feel less insecure about my skin.

Moisturizers -Neutrogena -Hydro Boost Gel-Cream Extra Dry Skin

Not for my dry skin. It is ultra light-weight and does not moisturize as a full weight day and/or night cream.


Sunscreen -Neutrogena -Sensitive Skin Sunblock Lotion SPF 60

foto

I am NC25, combination skin with yellow undertone. Left a white cast but did not burn. Spreads easily. No irritation. Washes off easily. Bought this for my family who have sensitive skin. Since no reapplication is needed for this chemical sunscreen, I am able to put a thin film of bronzer to darken the white cast. Seems like a lot of work so returned it and will try tinted ones. May be better for lighter skin tones. Still prefer my La Roche Posay tinted.

Edit: Someone asked me to compare this to the SPF 30 version. I don't prefer one over the other. Spf 30 version has alcohol denat lower on the ingredient list so that's a plus. But... it also causes you to compromise your SPF level.

---

For a drugstore sunscreen, this definitely isn't horrible. It preforms similar to asian sunscreen brands. The price is a steal... I'd pay the same for about 1/3 the amount of product usually. This isn't cakey, in fact the formula helps my (very matte) foundation glide on. I believe the Glycerin (listed as 2nd ingredient) is to thank for that. It *feels* hydrating and does eventually absorb. You can't detect it under my make up. While it doesn't keep me matte, I don't get oily any earlier than without it. And yet...I likely won't repurchase.

Why?

Because Neutrogena went with chemical UV filters and a boatload of drying alcohol for the ingredient list. My face is left burning red after a day of using this and it literally stings. If you have normal - tough skin, go for it. It's a great option for those who can tolerate asian sunscreen formulations (many have the same cons) but don't want to order from overseas. If you have sensitive or rosacea-prone skin, save yourself some pain.

I will note I am acne-prone and this sunscreen caused no break outs for me. However - I've seen complaints elsewhere. Some of you with acne-prone skin might find the glycerin or hyaluronic acid to be too emollient for your skintype. Your mileage may vary.
