I LOVE this product. My skin is oily in my T-zone and normal to dry (depending on the day) on my cheeks. I was looking for a night cream that moisturized but was not heavy, did not clog my pores or make me break out, and helped to fade past acne scars. I bought this on a whim at Target for around US$7.50 and had high expectations because I love the Naturals line. I have to say, I was not disappointed at all!
-snazzy glass container :)
-natural, good-for-skin ingredients
-cute fruity smell
-actually faded my acne marks!!
-didn't clog pores/break me out
-moisturized without being too heavy
-made my skin glow!
-glass jar would probably break easily if dropped
Overall, I absolutely recommend this product to anybody and everybody!
I use this at nigiht after cleansing with neutrogena ultra gentle foaming cleanser, and with either 2% salicylic acid toner OR retin a 0.025%. Either way it's perfectly moisuturizing, i use it for my entire face, eyes, and neck/chest with no break out. It's rich but not so heavy that I have to worry about it congesting my easily clogged skin.
And I love the short list of recognizable ingredients. I'll probably stick with this but might try neutrogena's ultra gentle soothing cream just b/c i love that line's foaming cleanser and spf soothing lotion so much I kind of want to see what the results of using the entire line would be.
I'm not too picky about moisturizers, as long as they don't break me out.
So far I've been using this for 4 months and I haven't had problems. I have oily skin so I don't require a ton of hydration from moisturizers. It's also not too greasy for me.
The glass jar is nice and hygienic because I use my own spatula to scoop out the product. I was attracted by the "naturals" label, although I'm not sure how organic it actually is! I guess I will have to do my research later. Overall, not a bad product.
Good moisturizer. Non-irritating. I like it for its price and I did not breakout. I will buy again as long as its available. Neutrogena tends to discontinue products often. It absorbs quickly. I like the scent.
I usually like Neutrogena products so when I tried this night cream I was more disappointed than Snooki's baby when he first opened his little eyes and realized who his mother was. I understand that a night cream is supposed to be very moisturizing, but this one claims to not clog pores and I have found that to be a blatant lie. I had a BAD break out after using this product and, because I am an idiot and gave it the benefit of the doubt, I continued to use it and my skin only got worse. Once I bought a new face cream the massive breakout of May 2012 finally ended, my hostilities ceased, and normal life was resumed. It was a day to remember.
I've never needed night creams until I started wearing makeup and washing/rinsing my face every night, during which sometimes my skin's oils may have been stripped and it feels a tiny bit more taut, so I settled with this Neutrogena Naturals night cream since I loved their Purifying Pore Scrub.
This night cream comes in a 1.7oz (50ml) glass jar with a plastic screw cap, and the first thing I noticed upon opening is that the cream has a faint fragrance. Probably not a product of choice for those with sensitive or acneic skin. I occasionally break out in acne as well but it's never product-related; in fact, this has helped make my breakouts less frequent since remoisturizing right after cleansing seems to have helped regulate oil production.
I apply this with my fingers though some may opt for small spatulas for hygienic reasons. A small pea-sized amount of this dabbed in five dots around my face, patted on, and then rubbed in is sufficient moisture for my already combo-oily skin. I bought my jar in July so at the time of writing this I have been using that same jar for more than 2 months, and it's still about 70–80% full. A little goes a long way with this product, at least for the summer when I don't need it as much. During the winter, I may be using this much more since my skin is inevitably drier. That said, I project that this jar will last me about 7–8 months of use total; I don't understand how others are going through it in 2 weeks though!
The cream has a thin, emollient, lotion-like consistency that's easy to spread yet feels very rich. Although I have combo-oily skin, this doesn't feel greasy on or after application. When I wake up the next morning, my skin feels soft, supple, and refreshed, and my dark circles around my eyes seem to be less apparent as well. While this hasn't done anything to lighten my acne scars, it's gentle and doesn't irritate my skin or aggravate existing blemishes.
This is the third moisturizer product I have used for overnight, the first two being from Clinique—Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion and Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief. While Clinique's products are fragrance-free (and can be used any time of day really), Moisture Surge is relatively expensive at $37/1.5oz. Dramatically Different is priced at $14/1.7oz, making it only $1 more than Neutrogena's $13 night cream (which by the way, can be brought down to $8 at Ulta with Ulta coupons and vendor coupons).
However, Neutrogena Naturals night cream is thicker in consistency and feels much richer, which I imagine is a treat for those with dry to normal skin or for those who experience dryness due to colder climates like I do. I may be trying different night creams once I finish this jar, but I can definitely say this was a good one even for those with slightly oily skin, and the price is fair for how long this product will last. I recommend this being applied right after cleansing the face in the evening to restore moisture immediately, using a minimal amount appropriate for your skin type (liberal application for dry skin, conservative application for oilier skin).
I like to use this cream after I have used Retinol products and scrubs which leave me looking sunburnt. I like to put something good back into my skin.
This cream is smooth and moisturising and soothes my skin.
When I wake up in the morning my skin still looks moisturised and there is no redness. Leaves your skin feeling very soft, I also like to use this on my hands.
I feel this cream is more of a lotion consistency and I woud like to see it in a tube or pump bottle for ease of use.
I love the fruity smell.
- Hydrates nicely for my skin type. If you have very dry skin, maybe you'll want to use this as a day cream or look for a richer product. For my dry/combination skin, this is perfect.
- Fades acne scars. I wasn't expecting this at all, but it's really helping with my acne and scarring!
- Scented. Doesn't really bother me all that much, but it is a negative.
- Not a lot of product for the price. I've had this for 2 weeks, and it's almost gone.
I would definitely recommend this one! It's 15 bucks for not a huge amount of product, but it's way better than any expensive face cream I've ever tried.
I was pleasantly surprised by how high-end this cream felt. Definitely comparable with some of the Lauder night creams I have tried in terms of texture. As far as moisturizing goes, it does its job. It doesn't feel greasy on the face, and you'll wake up with plump, well-moisturized skin. I haven't noticed any remarkable differences in my skin from the multi-vitamin formula. My two gripes are 1) it it is lightly scented--I don't mind the smell, but I don't particularly like putting scented things on my face, as that seems like it's just taunting my acne-prone skin to come out and play. And 2) it's in a jar, thus bringing up issues of hygiene and, again, potential acne issues. The jar is solid and well-made, but it'd be nice if it perhaps came with a spatula or a more hygienic way of transferring the cream from the pot to your face. So far, I have been using this for two weeks and have not broken out from it.
I think that this is a solid buy--nothing really spectacular that makes me think that I will be loyal to it, but it's a decent price for a good cream.
This product works great as expected. Neutrogena has always came through for me when all other products have failed me. I have been using it for over a month now and my skin's appearance is much better. My blemishes have lightened and the vitamins provide a soft almost baby-like glow to my skin. My skin also looks healthier and full of life. would recommend this product to anyone.
