I bought this hoping I could get a cheap face lotion. But while it moisturizes enough to satisfy me, I've found it makes my eyes burn. Which is weird, because I don't use this around my eyes. The 1 inch radius around my eyes is not touched by this product. It's as though the fumes from the lotion is what's causing the horrible pain in my eyes. I'll use this up on areas far away from my eyes, like the bottoms of my feet. But I would never, ever buy this again.
pros: absorbs easily, doesn't remain oily when absorbed, cheap, great packaging (includes a pump), decent sized bottle, don't think it broke me out. cons: even after it absorbs my skin still looks oily and it turns quiet red, it stings upon application which is really bad considering it's for sensitive skin, my dry and flaky patches remain dry and flaky no matter how much i apply, and my worst con for this moisturiser is that it's made in taiwan so i chucked it straight in the bin! no wonder it's cheap and it stings, god knows what cheap ingredients they use over there in the neutrogena products so i'm definately not repurchasing any neutrogena products anymore.
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..
