Sunscreen -Neutrogena -Sheer Zinc Sunscreen Face Lotion SPF 50

I do like the tube. I do like that it doesn't sting my eyes so I can protect my eye area without burning my eyeballs out. But holy crap....this stuff SUCKS the moisture out of my skin. I am using maralu oil, rosehip oil, a HA serum and the garnier rose moisturizer. With every other sunscreen, this was plenty at keeping my skin hydrated. But this stuff.....my face feels like sandpaper.

I am very fair and if I don't blend this in, it will leave a white cast. I don't see this working for anyone who is darker than paper. lol I will continue to use this as my "spending time outdoors" sunscreen. However, I am back to searching for a decent, somewhat hydrating physical sunscreen for day time wear under makeup. I do not recommend this for anything other than if you want something cheap to apply for just spending time outside in your yard.

Cleansers -Neutrogena -Ultra Gentle Hydrating Cleanser

I used this for two weeks and my forehead is covered with tiny whiteheads and pimples. It was perfectly clear. I’m trying to find a replacement for Fresh Soy Face Cleanser. This is definitely not it!

Moisturizers -Neutrogena -Combination Skin Moisture Oil Free

I'm pretty happy with this moisturizer. The high points are that it comes in a hygienic pump bottle, the price point is quite affordable, and it's free of harsh alcohols, petrolatum, and fragrance. It does, however, contain parabens. And although Neutrogena claims it's oil-free, it contains silicones (cyclomethicone & dimethicone) which are oils in my opinion. I have to be careful to avoid using the moisturizer on the oilier parts of my face as the 'cones may clog my pores. So it's not my HG moisturizer but is a decent buy while I try other options.


Cleansers -Neutrogena -Healthy Skin Boosters Facial Cleanser

Overall rating: - doesn’t take makeup off with one wash. I wash my face twice to get most everything off. Traces of mascara remain (non-waterproof) - finished my 4th bottle. Last 3 were great at keeping acne at bay. 4th one did not help with acne. Most likely a change with my body is to blame. Price: - 7.47 at Walmart. Quite doable. Packaging: - basic pump bottle is functional, but to get the last bit of product out you must unscrew pump and dump face wash out into your hand. So there’s room for improvement - to lock pump in “closed” position for travel you must push down and then twist to close. Wastes product and is annoying. Conclusion: - not repurchasing. Going to find something else in hopes it works better for controlling acne. Looking for something with no salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide (this product has neither) because I put on a mix AHA lotion at night

Foundations -Neutrogena -Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint

on 5/5/2018 6:21:00 AM

I read through these reviews before posting my own.

Even though this LOOKS like it is a full or even medium coverage foundation, it is NOT. It has the appearance in the bottle of other brands but don’t expect a matte or even semi-matte finish.

So keep moving on if that is what you want.

And it isn’t a primer- worthy foundation. Don’t bother.

It really is a tint with the consistency of the hydro-boost line.

That means little coverage and a moisturized finish. I think it is ideal for mature faces because most other foundations are hard to manage for us and take a lot of work to look good.

It’s what you’d use if you want a little “finish” on a bare face. It tones down my redness but does not eliminate it. It won’t cover blemishes or spots. But it does play down my superficial dryness and -yippee! - that’s what I wanted.

You could powder it but that would defeat the purpose. So I guess i’d say “curb your full-coverage expectations.”

Masks -Neutrogena -Hydro Boost Overnight Gel Mask

on 5/5/2018 6:06:00 AM

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes!

63 with combo skin that takes a beating from bha/aha applications. Plus superficial dryness, fine lines and even some wrinkles.

Didn’t think much of this put popped it in my cart. So I tried it and - wow! - this is great! No breakouts, no obnoxious scent, no added essential oils - just a great gel cream that has three or four uses per container. (Seal in a bag though!)

Masks -Neutrogena -Hydro Boost Overnight Gel Mask

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Overnight Gel Mask is packed in a single used pod like Nugg face masks. This contains a generous amount of product and there is easily enough for 3-4 uses but being that it is intended as a single use, you will either have to tape the seal back over or place it in a sandwich bag for suture uses. They are pretty widely available, which is how I ended up purchasing this, I had wanted the Nugg soothing mask but it has become impossible to find in stores. I wasn't sure if this would work well as I didn't have much luck with the Hydro boost Sheet mask. I was also a bit skeptical of an overnight mask feeling it might be mess and rub off.

My skin is dry to very dry, with the dryness sometimes causing eczema. I was experiencing and eczema flare up and my face was is desperate need of moisture. My skin was parched and flakey to the point I could not wear foundation. I washed and toned my face, then applied a thin layer of product to my entire face. to my surprise the mask dried quickly. I went to bed, and when I woke up the following morning i raised the mask off with plain water and a washcloth. This helped the appearance of my skin quite a bit, and while it didn't fix all of the really dry, flakey areas, it did hydrate my skin. Most of the the flakies on my jawline and forehead were gone, but my nose was still pretty dry

This does have the same soapy/fresh fragrance as the sheet mask version. Although I do have eczema, maks did not irritate my skin, and the fragrance is light. Price wise, these are pretty affordable at under $5USD per "single use" package. Though they are widely avaiable they are not merchandised well and can be troublesome to find on shelves. I would repruchase

This is not bad. Dries a little slow so watch for raccoon eyes, but looks nice and price is reasonable. No problems with irritation. Might buy again, but probably will try something else next time.

Moisturizers -Neutrogena -Hydro Boost Water Gel

I’ve carefully maintained my skin for years. It’s usually very resillient and far from sensitive.
Bought this because it was “non-comedogenic and alcohol-free.”
I haven’t broken out so bad in years. First night I used this there was a light stinging sensation. Assumed it was because my skin was dry after cleansing. Second night there was no stinging but saw some peeling on my skin in the morning. Odd, but didn’t want to blame the product just yet. After the third night I broke out horribly. These days I’ll get maybe one pimple every two three weeks.
This caused clusters of pimples. My forehead, temples, cheeks, chin, nose, all the way down to my neck. I don’t even remember ever having pimples on my neck before but now I have 6-7 on my neck. All red and angry.
If you’re adamant about purchasing this then please at least patch test for several days. It’s been years since I’ve broken out in any capacity but this just left my skin a mess.

Fab body lotion, intensely moisturizing and nourishing. I love its thick consistency and it's a joy to apply on skin. No such thing as dry patches anymore. I absolutely love this, it's also ususally on sale with half the price.

Moisturizers -Neutrogena -Combination Skin Moisture Oil Free

I will say off the bat I think this clogs my pores. I keep waking up with congestion when I use it, and end up having to go back to my trustworthy night cream standby: Vanicream Light lotion. Its annoying because local stores stopped carrying Vanicream. I will have to buy online. I refuse to be without that stuff as a standby to go back to everytime a new product I try fails. Ideally, I want a good portion of my makeup and skincare to be drugstore, because they are affordable and accessible. I don't want to buy overpriced products I feel stingy and precious about using. I have to apply sunscreen and moisturizer liberally.

This is a light lotion texture. Its very effective at keeping my compromised oily skin moisturized overnight and throughout the day. Wears great under makeup. Its fragrance-free. It comes with a pump! I'ts not shiny, oily or drying. I apply it on damp skin by itself, or over 98%aloe vera, or a hydrating serum.

I won't repurchase ONLY because im extremely acne prone. I would recommend this to anyone with normal to oily skin to TRY, because its simple, not offensive, and does its job at a great price. Its totally worth trying. Gave it 3 stars because it only has some vit e and glycerin, and no other antioxidants or skin replenishing ingredients.


Masks -Neutrogena -Hydro Boost Hydrating Gel Sheet Mask

I feel like this mask is just okay, if you have truly dry skin it's not going to be of much help. My skin varies from dry to very dry and I am prone to eczema. The texture of the mask is similar to other hydrogel masks such as Bosicas, with this one being a tad thinner. If you are sensitive to fragrance, It's probably best to avoid this as it does have a noticeable fresh, soapy smell. This did provide some hydration to my skin, but it's not an HG product. While it did provide hydration I don't feel that it improved the look of my skin. The mask come in two pieces, with a top and bottom portion, and I noticed that it seems to dry out rather quickly once applied. In my opinion this is better suited for skin that is oily to combination that needs just a bit of moisture.

Cleansers -Neutrogena -Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel

I've got to agree with pammysue58: I really like this cleanser! I wear sunscreen, foundation and some serious eye makeup and I get it all off easily - but I use a microfiber cloth. And I do a second round. I only need a small amount and the scent doesn't bother me. It's a simple gel cleanser - much like any other Neutrogena gel - with glycerin and coca- betaine. This isn't a radical formula - it would be better without fragrance. And these cleanser need a "breakdown" where you have to work it in before it cuts through makeup - especial!y mascara.

Treatments (Face) -Neutrogena -Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Spot Gel

on 5/2/2018 6:47:00 PM

I tried this out due to some red patchy dry spots from previous cystic pimples i had that turned to scabs an now pink & irritated skin due to picking. I applied it to the spots an within a few hours the redness calmed down. It was not overly drying or overpowering but i can say quite effective.

I typically can not use anything on my face at all, i break out with certain foods i eat to so this to me was another risk to take.

I did use neutrogena oil free acne wash with aloe & calming which left my face soft without breaking me out from the second i used it so that was nice. I also stopped wearing make up which progressed my acne to begin with.

If this stuff would have failed me, I would have to go to my doctor for mirpuricen gel to heal the spots which ive done before.

Worst case scenerio down the road i may just try accutane if this doesnt work in the long haul.

For years now I’ve always went back and forth with this oil. I like how light it smells and how well it absorbs and keeps my skin soft and moisturized. It’s not something I would use in the summer, but for winter, it is my favorite. Best applied after a shower. It’s fair in pricing, and just something I always have for the dry winter season.
