This product contains two ingredients I always want in a day lotion -sunscreen and retinol. Reviewers have raved so much about this so I splurged the $20 for such a small bottle. I needed two squirts and a little water to smooth this over my entire face and neck. It does blend in well enough. I see no visible smoothing results with this and that's the big claim of this product. So for the money, I can certainly find better alternatives.
I been using this for about a month now and I have notice a positive result. My skin tone is much more even and my texture is smooth and soft. I have stop using concealer and wear Very light foundation. I have only tried the night time one. I plan on continuing to use this and seeing how my skin is in a couple of month.
I wanted so badly to love this product because of all the promises and hype but I can't.
Four reasons why: First, it's gummy, which means that I have to spend a good 5 minutes (no exaggeration!) making sure of an even application. I just don't have that kind of time in the morning, esp. when so many other moisturizers don't have this problem. Second, it didn't improve my tone to a noticeable degree. Third, it's kinda greasy on my combo skin, which means that it doesn't work well under my makeup, esp. my tinted moisturizer. Lastly, for a drugstore moisturizer, it's over $20!
On the positive side, it didn't irritate my acne prone skin.
Overall, I still love Neutrogena, just not this product.
Needed a lightweight moisturizer with sunscreen for summer humidity. Was using Olay ProX and thought it was too heavy for summertime. Almost grabbed the lighter Olay version, but saw this and decided to try something different.
Not only does this glide on smoothly and feel very nice on my skin, but has the added benefits of 30SPF and retinol. It is supposed to decrease dark spots, but I already have that area covered so that is not my concern. The pump seems to be working well, and the packaging is efficient.
I would buy again.
I use the night formula with vitamin c. This is the most amazing product ever! I am 32 with adult acne, scars,etc. I've only used it for 2 weeks and my skin cleared up, is glowing, soft, more even toned, lightened my scars, stopped breakouts, smoothed bumpy texture, helped with fine lines....It's a do it all amazing product and I've tried TONS including prescription. I can skip the full coverage foundation now. Def. HG!
I had a previous review on here that was 2 lippies, but I upped it to 4. I was using it for a few weeks and it broke me out on my hairline so I stopped, but I never threw it away...
Well, this past week, I mistakenly tried witch hazel as a toner on my skin every night and, although it initially made my skin look pretty good and less oily, it ended up giving me WRINKLES on my forehead and between my brows, also around my mouth. I was shocked.
I tried everything to re-plump my skin back to its original turgor, but to no avail. I eyed the Neutrogena Tone Repair and said "why not?" --I was desperate. I put it on generously last night and woke to moisturized skin and the wrinkles disappeared. Also, a piece of hyperpigmented skin flaked and fell off after I got out of the shower. I was like, "ok."
I have renewed interest in this product now needless to say. I'm going to try this again once a day and maybe avoid my hairline area to prevent the pimples I got last time. This product undoubtedly does SOMETHING. I read online that retinoids used alternately with an AHA cream works well, so I may buy an AHA cream too to speed up the process.
To start I am not a big fan of Neutrogena, however this product intrigued me. I typically use replenix which is 3x the price. I use replenix because it is supposed to have soothing ingredients, however I found this product to be more soothing and tolerable than the replenix. I found this to be just as effective in my night regiment and I am am happy with the results thus far. Yes I will repurchase and save my money or other things.
I really like this product. I have been using the night version both morning and night for about a week. It has really helped heal my old breakouts and I can definitely see age spots fading. My pores seem smaller and less noticeable as well, so that's a bonus! Would definitely recommend and I will be buying again.
I lovelovelove this product. I've stuck with the night formula after accidentally buying it several months ago when I first decided to try this moisturizer. I've had a lot of issues with dark spots, and after making sunscreen a daily part of my skincare regimen I noticed the spots decreased, but I felt I need something more. I was on my way to buy the Clinque dark spot corrector when I spotted this in CVS and decided to give it a try. I saw results within days and have stuck with it ever since.
I use this is conjunction with the day time version and it really does what it says. My skin is soft, radiant, and most importantly, it's soooo even! I have oily, sensitive skin that doesn't usually get breakouts, but when I do, it's the big cystic icky ones! This stuff doesn't cause that, my pores even look a little smaller. Not to mention, it smells heavenly. Only gripe is the price. A little expensive for a ds product, but worth it. :)
