I recently came back to this stuff and have to wonder why I ever stopped... Love it. Not a miracle worker - what REALLY is??? But it does what it says it will do. And after coming back to it for about a week, my skin looks healthier and brighter than it did a week ago. I love the price and would happily pay department store rates for it if I had to. HG daytimer...
So this is a premature review but I will be sure to update in a few weeks, or as soon as I see results. I'm on my fourth day of using this product, but I am already quite pleased ...not because my fine lines are disappearing (which is what I want above all) but because it hasn't irritated my skin or turned it red at all. EXCEPT around my eyes. But this it to be expected considering its not for your eyes. My skin has felt smoother and softer. I should tell you I also have been using ponds dry skin moisturizer on top of the neutrogena cream.
I like that the packaging is in a hygienic tube, rather than tub. And if all goes well I will most definitely be re purchasing. Also I should mention this cream is normally 25 dollars at my local drugstore, but I only paid 17, which made me happy :)
I like this for my oily/combo/sensitive skin. It doesn't cause any redness but I am not sure how effective the spf is since retnol makes you more sensitive to the sun. I prefer the night time version of this.
Great daily moisturizer! I love the fact that is is fragrance free, has spf 15, the hygienic packaging and doesn't make my face oily. It seems to be creamy and quite thick when it comes out of the tube, but sinks in fast and feels very lightweight. Skinf feels and looks soft, healthy, hydrated. I love it. I don't know about the anti wrinkle-qualities because I don't have wrinkles yet myself. Without the retinol in it I would also use it. Recommended, also for the oilier skintypes.
This is a nice workhorse product. SPF + retinol + antioxidants is a great combination. I use this in the morning and for the past few weeks, my skin tone is improving, and I've also noticed some darker spots fading (I am also on Differin, which I am sure is helping in these areas). The only reason I rated this 4 stars is it does make my t-zone pretty oily. Fortunately that hasn't translated into any new breakouts, I just have to blot several times a day. Really nice product.
I bought Neutrogena's Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream (with SPF 15) based on the fact that many dermatologists recommend using a retinol product to keep skin looking young, and Neutrogena's Anti-Wrinkle products have been really popular, which is usually a sign that they work. I had tried Retin-A in the past, and it was way too harsh on my sensitive skin, so I figured this product would be easier to use since it's much less concentrated. Unfortunately, this product didn't work for me. I forced myself to use the entire tube, since I've heard it can take a few months for retinol products to take effect--it took me about 4 months to use it up. The product is creamy, but sinks in pretty quickly, and didn't cause any major allergic reactions. However, it did seem to cause clogged pores, giving me blackheads on my nose and chin. I did not experience any major outbreaks, but I also did not notice any difference whatsoever in a more even skin tone or reduction in fine lines or sun spots. I won't be repurchasing this product, since it didn't make a noticeable difference, and I can buy an equally effective moisturizer with SPF 15 for much cheaper.
I've been using this stuff for a couple of weeks now and believe I have found my HG moisturizer. It's nice and light, doesn't make me greasy at all, almost has a nice whipped texture. I think it has clarified my skin mildly but I've only been using it a short time to be able to tell. Hasn't broken me out as far as I can tell. I do recall buying this a few years ago and had a problem with small whiteheads. Can't be sure if ti was this though, but this time around does not seem to be causing that. Update: Still using this and still loving it. This hasn't caused any breakouts for me and provides just the right amount of moisture w/o making me greasy. Plus, I will note that is has continued to clear up old acne marks on my skin.
Like it! Just enough moisturizer and it has spf too! I can't really say anything about the winkle part though since i'm only 16..
bought this as a set with the fresh foaming cleanser and the eye cream.. thought i should inform everyone... the actual spf cream for the face contains ceatyl and cetearyl alcohol - both highly comodegenic.. according to www.cosdna.com where u can find almost any make up product and it will display the list of ingredients as well as let you know how comodegenic and irritating each one is... this does cause pores to become clogged so if you already have a problem with blackheads.. or even if you don't - you're most likely going to see a lot more tiny white bumps start popping up.. it's a shame all i'm using from the pack is the eye cream b/c the face wash has sodium chloride in it which according to another website is comodegenic as well although the cosdna website doesn't say it is... confusing huh.. well.. i'm sick of breaking out so i'm not giving it a chance... it's amazing how many body washes, face washes for acne, etc contain ingredients that just clog your pores.. even when they say they are non-comodegenic - if you don't know what to look for in the ingredients you'll never know.. i was suprised to find out my NYC sunny bronzer has been giving me tiny white bumps on my neck.. because of certain ingredients in it.. do your research ladies - can't always trust what people say on MUA although i love this place... it's just not enough if you have acne - you need to do the research on ingredients and really avoid things that have high levels of comodegenic ingredients.
Yikes! Flash forward! I used to love this original formula, came back to it and holy wow, it breaks me out! What on earth is that all about? Teeny whiteheads, new ones daily. Took me a minute to decide if this was the problem or if it was the new Maybelline pressed powder I bought. Started by eliminating this and bingo!, skin back to normal within a 48 hr period, no joke. Surprisingly, the CVS knock off of Neutrogena's Deep Wrinkle daytime cream is a fabulous bargain buy for me and is what I started using again to test out whether or not this cream was the reason for my skin woes. Headed to CVS tomorrow to return this stuff and buy a new tube of the CVS brand Deep Wrinkle, higher SPF too and paraben free, I recommend it ladies :)
