This stuff is great!!! It's the first moisturizer that doesn't break me out and sinks right into my skin wonderfully. I was recovering from a recent explosion of breakouts due to trying all these difference products. I have used moisturizers from origins, estee lauder, clinique, you name it and nothing has given me the results this has. Now I wake up to clear skin, radiant skin! A+++ to Neutrogena for this one!
I have been using this product since my teens, so it's time i showed it some love! I sometimes get eczema if I'm not careful about what products I'm using. I had a really bad break out in my teens and went to a dermatologist who recommended a few skin care products that wouldn't irritate my skin. This was one of the cheaper ones, so I gave it a go. I get bored every now and then and try new products but always end up coming back to this. It's very gentle on my skin, and I love how after I apply it my skin still feels nice and clean and fresh (unlike many others I've tried that feel like a thick layer of grease sitting on your skin) It's not super moisturising, so I sometimes need to use a little something extra on some areas, but it's a great everyday moisturiser that just takes away the tightness I feel after washing my face.
I have oily sensitive skin. Products for oily skin irritate me, products for sensitive skin are too greasy. I've tried different products, but this is the only one that works for me. I've been using it for a week, my dry flakes are gone, my skin looks less red, and no pimples so far. A pump is good enough for my face and neck. If I use too much, my face looks greasy. First I was using tissue paper to absorb the excess, now I'm just using the back of my hand to pad my face until it doesn't look oily (it's greener than using a tissue a day). It doesn't have antioxidants or sunscreen. I usually don't like moisturizers with sunscreen because they usually have chemical sunscreens that irritate me, and I didn't care about the antioxidants since I don't even know if they work most of the time. I only wanted something that would moisturize, and it was on sale $8, and I had a coupon, so I gave it a try. I haven't used it under makeup, though. When I wear makeup I use Dior's HydraLife Skin Perfect, which is a primer and a moisturizer. Skin Perfect's a great moisturizer and pore reducer, but I don't use it everyday because, even though it doesn't burn, my skin looks slightly irritated it if I use it every day. That's why I use the neutrogena as my everyday lotion.
UPDATE Took a lippie away because it's summer, and this lotion feels too greasy now.
PROS: moisturizing, does not cause breakout
CONS: leaves face a bit shiny, a bit sticky to touch
Made my eyes sting. If it does this to my eyes, I really don't think I want to keep putting it on my skin. It did moisturize, though.
A great basic moisturiser for normal to dry skin. My skin is usually tight feeling and craves a cream after I cleanse (and I used a gentle cream cleanser). With the seasons just having changed my skin got so flaky and dry and having tried a variety of creams by Clinique, Paula's choice and Olay the best combination I found that rescued my skin, got rid of the dryness and a few dehydration lines with it, was this cream combined with Olay's regenerist serum. I only gave this 4 stars though because it does lack antioxidants, skin identical ingredients etc that you need to keep skin healthy (which I why I combine it with somethinig that is packed full of that stuff), but if moisture is what you need then this is great. It also earnt a star because I find the dark/red ishness under my eys goes down when I use this, so I guess as per the label, it is good for senstive skin.
Quite moisturizing & it didn't make my skin break out but it can be left a little little bit oily after applying it. Sometimes, it makes my eyes sting but it's not a big deal as it goes away within a minute.
I broke out with a bunch of pimples on my nose and under my nose.. Im still dried out.. I live in AZ so I need all the moisture I can get.. I tried this because I have combination skin and sensitive to a lot of products.. Im oily by my nose and dry by my cheeks and chin.. Im still dry my cheeks and chin and now Im pimply on my nose and around my nose.. It took only 3-4 days for this to happen..
The product went on nice.. Thats was the only thing I liked about it.
I guess Ill just go back to the night cream I was using before..
This is horrible. This irritated my skin worse than Neutrogena's regular 'oil-free with spft 15' moisturiser did. My eyes actually watered when I first put this on, and I had to wash my face again to make it stop. I put it away for a while and tried it again when my skin wasn't being as temperamental (I have sensitive, combo/dehydrated, acne prone skin and I use Retin-A) and I really wish I hadn't. It hurt like hell, made my face red, oily and broke me out in loads of tiny bumps all over my nose and right under my eyes. There went my 'not acting so temperamental' skin. The damage took a week or so to clear up. Never again.
I know I have really whacky skin and that a lot of good products don't work for me but are perfectly good for people with nicer skin, but I would not recommend this to anyone, no matter their skin type. It is oily (I don't care what the package claims), it does not moisturise at all, it is hard to absorb and it's one of the most irritating products I have ever put on my face (and, as I said before, I use Retin-A). Good for sensitive skin? HA.
This is my second time trying this product. It does feel really good- hydrating but not heavy....but something in here gives me bumps.. Now in all fairness I have the weirdest most reactive skin on earth, so I do think this would be great for someone with normal skin that needs a good, light moisturizer...Guess I'm sticking with Youthtopia...
