It worked both on my adult acne & wrinkles.
I'm suffering from horrible adult acne for 3 yrs now and I'm under a dermatologist care. I'm recently using sulfur & clindamycin prescriptions for a month now. My acne aren't that horrible anymore, but still wasn't happy (still have breakouts around my chin area and a few on my forehead).
I started using this Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle SPF 15 once a day together with the Anti-Wrinkle Anti-Blemish Cream during the night, and my skin looked better. Even my dermatologist was happy about the results! He told me my skin is so beautiful, looks healthy and recovering fast than expected. By the way, he didn't know I'm using this together with the prescriptions :)
I have slight wrinkle formations around my forehead and it has definitely almost gone now. And I've been only using this product for only a week!
I highly recommend this product.
I bought this a few years ago after reading the reviews here and i've been using it ever since. I love the texture, it's not watery or greasy. I really, really love the package. No product gets wasted and it's a nice compact tube. One tube lasts me a few months.
bought this bec of + reviews here. it was good on acne scars, bad for fine lines. made the lines look worse. i wake up and there are the lines on my forehead even more noticeable and deeper than before, more so if you put powder on your face. i returned this one.
It's okay, not as good as I thought it would be. I think that if you already have nice smooth skin, then this would make your skin perfect. But for me (oily,acne,scars) it didn't really do anything. It didn't cause pimples but I also don't feel it prevent either. I got it for 10$, and I usually see it for 15$ here. I saw it once on clearance at Shoppers Drug Mart for 5$, and that's the only way i'd buy it - if it was 5 bucks.
I stopped using the cream a couple of years ago. It is not worth the hype, just your average moisturizer with so called anti wrinkle properties. I was in my early 20's when I used this so I didn't (still don't) have issues with wrinkles or lines. I do, however, have old pimple scars that I thought would fade with use. It does an okay job moisturizing, but I wouldn't recommend using this if you have dry/very dry skin. The texture is nice and creamy, somewhat of a whipped consistency. I used this in the summer and did not have any issues with burning/reddening, so the SPF 15 is low but effective. Aside from a few positive points, this is an ehhh product. I'm glad it works for others, just not for me. A bit expensive for a DS moisturizer (about $14), will not repurchase. Also, the tube tends to leak towards to end so be careful.
I bought this after all the great reviews and I have to say I don't see all they hype. I have acne prone skin that tends to be oily in the tzone and dry everywhere else. This left my skin parched so that I had to start using a serum underneath just to keep it hydrated and not flaky. I also had to slather on WAY more product that I do with other moisturizers. To be fair I started using this in the colder months but I'd rather just try something else when it runs out. Maybe if you live in a warm climate it would work for you but not good for Maritime fall/winter.
I used up the whole tube before reviewing the product - it lasted me a good 3 months (applied once a day for the most part). I used it in conjunction with the Neutrogena Intensive Night Cream that also contains retinol. I actually tried these products in the hopes that it would help a bit with my acne, but it did not seem to have any effect on acne - good or bad.
As a moisturizer, it's very lightweight and non-greasy, drying to a powdery finish. It is not moisturizing enough to get rid of dry patches on your skin, though. Make sure you exfoliate before applying. I actually really like it as a daily SPF moisturizer because it does not leave me looking like a greaseball like a lot of the other SPF moisturizers. I tend to have an oily T-zone, but the oil production does not seem as bad after starting this product.
Since I live in a warm climate, this moisturizer is perfect. However, when we had a few weeks/days of cold weather this product actually made my skin even drier. I had to supplement my routine at night with a thicker moisturizer to help with the dryness. Other than during colder weather, I did not experience flakiness or peeling due to the retinol.
As far as wrinkles go, I did not have any to begin with so I do not know if it was useful for that. It did seem to make my skin tone more even, though. I also believe it helped speed up my skin's healing process because my post-acne redness/scarring faded faster than prior to starting this product. Instead of the redness taking 6 months to heal substantially, it seemed to cut it down to maybe 1-2 months. It did not fade my sunspots/freckles, unfortunately.
Overall, I think this is a great moisturizer for everyday use on oily combination skin.
I used this for a long time but always wondered why I had this weird flakey stuff on my face throughout the day. Turns out that my skin was just never absorbing it - it was the first face cream I had ever really used. I've switched to Mary Kay moisturizers and they work much better on my skin.
I like this product in general.
I finished the tube. It didn't give me break out and make my skin to give out more oil.
I can't say I saw a significant improvement of my skin; but at least it maintained it.
The only downfall is that I believe the SPF 15 is not enough sun protection needed in general and I really don't want to put another layer of sunblock, so I am trying other Neutrogena products with higher SPF.
OMG! I canít believe the difference in my skin/complexion. Iím only 28 but I was starting to notice some fine lines around my eyes and mouth; this stuff has made those little lines vanish and it has evened out my skin tone. I like that it also has SPF 15 and it has glycerin in it, so it is also very moisturizing. My old Olay moisturizer didnít seem to moisturize at all, it was very runny; the Neutrogena is a thick cream, almost whipped in consistency. It did take about a month for me to really notice a difference in my skin but Iím glad I stuck with it.
