This moisturizer leaves my face overly greasy. I'm beginning to believe that it is this moisturizer that is breaking me out! I'm nor sure if it was coincidental or correlative but I began to break out like never before in quantities and places that were unusual! I'm going to top using it...TODAY. I'm going back to my trust AVEENO products. Their moisturizers never break me out or leave my face greasy. The price is a bit higher, which was my initial reason for trying Neutragena. It's not worth saving a few bucks. The only plus is that it has sunscreen built in, even though it is a very low SPF.
I really like this moisturizer. I was looking for one with SPF and that would help even out my skin tone. I found that it did help noticibly fade dark spots after about 3 weeks. It isn't greasy to me. I do notice a slight scent but it fades quickly once absorbed. I apply two pumps for my entire face and neck after cleansing and allow it to soak in for about 10 minutes before continuing my skincare routine.
For the first few days of using this sunblock/moisturizer, I was considering returning it because it made my skin so oily. The smell is also a little unpleasant, but I think it's from the AHA's. It reminds me of the Alpha Hydrox brand lotion.
However, I did notice that my skintone was more even and smooth after a few uses, and I liked the texture of the lotion because it was moist and easy to apply (unlike some drier lotions). I often had spots of dryness around my mouth with another moisturizer, but not with the Neutrogena.
To solve my problem, I bought a jar of Coty Airspun Translucent and applied a heavy layer as part of my morning makeup routine (lotion, highlighter, foundation as concealer, and now powder). The loose powder did the trick, and my skin now has little oily breakthrough during the day, and when the powder settles in, it looks like smooth, even skin.
I'll finish this bottle of the Neutrogena and maybe continue using it. It contains 5% oxybenzone, so I believe it's broad spectrum. I don't spend much time in the sun on a daily basis, though, so others may want a lotion with at least spf 30.
Horrible product! I have oily skin and this lotion left my face very greasy! I do not recommend this to ppl who have oily skin. And it burns a little when I apply it on. I only used this 5 times and I'm never going to use it again! Waste of my money.
What a sad excuse for a sunscreen! I just started using this again since ive been put on acne treatments that can make skin more sensitive to sun exposure. I put this on before school and within the middle of the day my face has been turned into an oil slick! I have dry skin so this says alot about its greasiness. I do not reconmend this at all, the description of this sounded pretty good but its no excuse for such a horrible product.
I started using the oil-free spf 15 moisturizer and will never use it again. For it being oil-free it certainly didn't feel oil-free. It left my skin feeling oily and gross and broke me out horribly. I have fairly normal skin and this made overly oily and hard to deal with. It even seemed harder to get my primer and foundation to stay. As soon as I started using my old moisturizer my skin went back to normal. Sadly out of all the neutrogena products I have tried the only one that hasn't made my skin oily is the healthy skin anti-wrinkle night cream.
I also did not like the smell of this product. It isn't a chemical smell but it is non the less strong and offensive.
I like the packaging with this product. I usually lean more towards pumps. I never had a problem with dispensing the product and I love the fact that I can lock the cap without having to push the top down and waste product.
The price isn't bad either. I think I paid around $7 for this. Of course since it didn't work for me it isn't a good price but for everyone else it does work for I think this is a fair price.
I had high hopes for this moisturizer. I wanted it to help fade some red marks I have left over from cystic acne but after using it for approx. 2 months the marks have not faded so I have moved on. In fact, I think this lotion made my skin a little red. I now use it as a hand lotion but I won't buy this again.
I love this lotion, it's fairly inexpensive, readily available, and works well. I always use two pumps to moisturize my face after showering in the morning. It goes on clean, isn't greasy, and offers some sun protection. Careful if you have any cuts of scrapes though, as it will burn a bit.
This is currently my daytime moisturizer, and it works ok. Not great, but ok. It does sting a bit when I put it on, but just a small amount keeps my face moisturized and protected from the sun.
I am coming back to this product after many tryouts of things in the market. Healthy Skin has all the necessary ingredients and SPF 15, smells neutral, texture is in the middle of moisturizing. I do occasionally supplement it with another moisturizer in the winter time. It performs well with make-up on, and lasting the whole day in office. I am happy with this product.
