Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Deep Moisture Day Cream

What a waste of my money!!

Saw this at the pharmacy and thought it would be good for my skin to moisturize and provide SPF... I was so disappointed.
First off, just 2.25 ounces cost me about $11. I was unable to finish it (for reasons I'll soon explain) but assuming I had continued to apply it every day, a container this small would last not even a month. So I obviously expected a day moisturizer at this price to be of quality.

The first time I wore this it was impossible to get the white blended into my face. After a lot if time blending and blotting I figured I was in the clear. After a 25-minute walk to work, I got into the office saw my reflection in the mirror and could not believe the white cast that remained on my face! Don't you think a day cream should be made to blend in so that you could wear your makeup over it? And if this is supposed to moisturize, then why doesn't it absorb into the skin??
The second time I wore this I was in the sun for a couple hours in July. Even though I didn't like the product I didn't have any other sun protection so I put it on anyway. By the end of the day my face was sooo blotchy!

This cream when reacting with the sun made my skin itchy and inflamed. I can't believe a product meant to moisturize and protect one's skin from the sun could make my skin so angry.

Can't believe Neutrogena is allowed to rip off customers like this

I have used this hydrating lotion for over a year. I mainly stuck with it because it would not cause break-outs and is lightweight. It also does well under makeup. I'm currently searching for something more hydrating but it is a good value for the price and comes in handy when my skin is reacting to other creams I've been testing out. It's fast absorbing and perfect for a quick morning routine.

I personally enjoy the Vaseline like texture of this hand cream as I love a heavy duty hand cream for my hands, but this cream is not for everyone! If you don't have the patience or don't enjoy a greasy texture I would advise against buying it.

It is quite greasy initially and takes a little while to absorb completely but it does leaves my hands nice and soft.

This one really works! But if weather is a bit warm then it's a bit greasy and heavy for my skin. I only use it in cold winter time.

I don't get it, the amazing reviews for this hand cream. It's like a slightly thinner vaseline, nothing special whatsoever and not as moisturizing as I hoped. This would be a great hand protector during winter months, however. I'd layer this over a richer hand creme.

Really wanted to like this because it's gel so would be lighter for the summer months and NYC humidity but it just doesn't moisturize and it stings. I have very dry/sensitive skin and upon initial application, feels very cooling and moisturizing but absorbs very quickly leaving my skin tighter and drier. I also noticed it made my skin redder (it was the only new product I was using for a few days). Needless to say, will not repurchase.

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

I have sensitive acne prone and oily skin. I don't love this product but I don't hate it either. When I wear it alone I absolutely love how it feels on my skin when it dries. It makes me feel less greasy than typical sunscreens. However when I use this it doesn't last very long. I find that I should keep reapplying otherwise my face will not feel soft and dry and protected anymore. I do love it so I use it sparingly now, definitely not everyday, mainly only when I remember it exists. Surprisingly enough I feel like my skin does much better without any sunscreen at all (I have Filipino skin so a little sun tan doesn't matter to me, it doesn't make a difference).


Cleansers -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Boosters Facial Cleanser

This product is the absolute BEST. My skin is very sensitive and temperamentally oily and I find that most other cleansers would leave my skin feeling dry and tight. And when I would wake up in the morning it would be dry if I didn't use moisturizer. It's also acne prone and there was a moment in time when my eyebrows and forehead began to get dry and flaky and there would be white spots that formed from the skin flaking so much.

Nothing I did helped it except this cleanser. It took ONE WEEKEND of nightly washing for the flakes to begin to disappear. I didnt use toner, moisturizer, etc afterwards. Just this product alone. Now you couldn't tell that I had dry spots to begin with! My complexion is more even and my face feels hydrated and healthy. I would use it on my entire body if I could. I'm so in love with this product it's ridiculously amazing.

My acne has also vanished, there are less bumps on my face and it feels smoother. During my period days is when I get the most breakouts and I didn't experience any major breaking out with this product. It was only one pimple. My face has become so clear my friends have complimented me on it.

For further notes, it also helped remove/reduce dandruff and the white spots it caused along my hairline. Truly wonderful. I continue to use this product alone. I feel as if I were to put on moisturizer my face will no longer be balanced and will be oily when I wake up in the morning. If your skin is typically dry then I would probably choose to put on moisturizer as my skin was quite oily to begin with

Lip Gloss -Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Lip Shine

on 8/12/2017 1:36:00 AM

Radiant Rose is a lovely sheer wash of true pink, nowhere near as bright as the color in the tube. The lip gloss goes on a little sticky but smoothly, and it does have a moisturizing effect without smearing. I actually love the applicator, which feels like a flexible cross between a doe-foot brush and a mini spatula. I'll be purchasing this in other colors, and I plan to clean and keep the applicator to apply other lip products.

I Love this stuff! Simply said, it goes on very light and clean and the smell is AMAZING!! I use the Nivea in shower body lotion and once I'm out of the shower, I put this on. Double dose of bam! Leaves me smelling great and feeling silky smooth.

I swear by this. Using it for years after showering. Works beautifully, smells great, not sticky or heavy or overwhelming smell. You can use your cologne or perfume without conflicting


Cleansers -Neutrogena - Naturals - Purifying Facial Cleanser

I have repurchased this 10+ times I really love this cleanser. It has a nice fresh apple scent, and only a dime sized amount will cover my face in bubbles. (The makeup removing version is a like a rich lather, while the original purifying is more of a foam.) It's effective at removing makeup and leaves my skin feeling soft. It has not lead to any acne for me or irritation. It does not dry out my skin. I prefer the "fresh cleansing and makeup removing" version of this, but I've used both and I think they are both great. Whenever this is on a nice sale I stock up.

Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Oil Free Moisture - SPF 15

I dont know whats going on with this moisturizer but its really just awful. It moisturizes ok but that is not the problem. The problem is it caused acne on my skin after 1 day of using it! This also is NOT fragrance free. To me it has this weird cucumber smell like they tried to cover up the sunscreen smell with a chemical...its weird. My skin does NOT react well to fragrances and perfumes in skincare and I suspect this is the reason I started getting acne from it. I dont know how they can label this as for sensitive skin and fragrance free when it definitely is not. When I first opened it I thought I bought a bottle that went rancid and when I smelled a different bottle in the store, it was the same smell. Just so weird....

I bought the target up and up brand of this to try instead, its a little different and actually IS fragrance free.

**EDIT*** I just wanted to add its been almost a week now since using the target brand version and so far NO ACNE or any other irritations! So I suggest just buying the up and up version instead!!

Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Water Gel

This made my oily skin more oily. Every makeup I used with it felt sticky, heavy and cakey after about an hour (I did use primers). I got it in a tube with a pump and not a jar so I like the packaging. It's a soft tube that you could cut open to get the hidden remnants if you're trying to make it last. I think the price was average for a drugstore moisturizer. It smells fresh, but artificially and powdery fresh. I got a new blemish while using this, but I can't say it was from it. I didn't have any major breakouts. I would not but this again and would not recommend it to anyone with oily skin.

Primer/ Corrector -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Primer with Sunscreen

First the price: it seems to me it's really shot up! I saw it today at Duane Reade for $16.47!! When first bought this product just a couple of years ago it was only $7 and change at Drugstore Dot Com (I sure miss that place).

Anyway, the product is great. I'm quite pale, and I try to take good care of my skin so I always pile on the SPF. At an SPF of 15, though, I use this product on winter/cloudy/more-indoor-than-out days. It does make my skin smooth and the color even, so I'd love it if the SPF were, say, 30. But it is what it is, and it has its place.

Speaking of place, the container is small -- just right for a make-up bag, just right for the airport! So, it's very portable and handy.

I'll get another when I find it at a reasonable price again.
