I was really hesitant about using a product with retinol in it after hearing about irritation and skin sensitivity. But this product is AH-mazing. It's the first time I've used it today, and while I was expecting something thick and creamy, I got light and airy. A little goes a long way and my face doesn't feel greasy at all. My skin has stayed matte all day long and nothing else I've used that is anti-shine has done this for me. I might be a little shiny in places where I've put on concealer, but all in all, my face looks great. I can't say more about its anti-wrinkle properties since I just started using it, but so far, it works really well. If you're looking for a product that is light and will mattify your face (not just anti-shine, but anti-grease) you will love this moisturizer. It's pretty much fragrance-free except for a light clean smell. It is definitely worth the money.
EDIT: I've been using it for several weeks now and my face still stays matte all day, and I rarely ever have pimples. I've been incredibly stressed with school and I usually break out in cystic acne or just have zits with their own zip code. But my face is clear and has never been better. If you're looking for something that will help with your acne, this is definitely a great and effective product. I still can't say much about its wrinkle properties because I don't really have wrinkles but my skin is much smoother and soft to the touch. I also thought my skin would be really sensitive to the retinol and I'd sunburn despite the spf, but I live in SoCal and haven't burned yet. I plan on buying this again and I hope they don't discontinue it.
I've been using for about a year now, and I LOVE it. It's very light, sinks in quickly, makes my face soft, and helps fade my acne scars. Also, a little goes a long way. Will continue to repurchase.
I have been using this for a few weeks now and i really like it! it moisturizes my skin, sinks in quickly, brightens my face and i also think it helps with clearing blemishes. I like how it comes in a tube so you dont have to put your fingers in it. Also just a little amount works for your entire face. I dont have wrinkles yet but am using this a preventative measure and i will be buying again.
great! i love it! it goes on light, does not feel greasy. no break outs! not enough time to see the anti wrinkle benefits yet, but i like it as a moisturizer anyway so i will buy again.
I started using this about 2 weeks ago and in that time my skin has been totally transformed. My skin is more even in texture and more refined, foundation glides on like a dream. However, I can't be entirely sure if this cream can take all the credit... I have also changed my homemade vitamin c serum to include glycerin and I also take a new supplement for skin health, all started about the same time. Of course, I'm not prepared to stop doing any of these things because my skin hasn't bee this good for years!! Anyway, definitely will repurchase this!
Neutrogena has the best moisturizer. My facial, lip, and body moisturizer are all from Neutrogena. I used to use Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Facial Moisturizer for many years. After read all the good reviews on here about the Healthy Skin Unti-Wrinkle Cream, I decided to give it a try. It was a definite winner. Love the texture of this moisturizer. It's like whipped butter, has such nice consistency, obsorbs very nicely into the skin, feels weightless after it goes on. My skin used to get oily during the day, but I haven't had this problem since I started using this. I also love the fact that it's unscented. I noticed that a lot of reviewers do not like the packaging of this product. I actually like the packaging. It's so small and space efficient. You can easily carry this in your purse with you anywhere. I don't use a lot of it, so the small tube lasts me a long time. I use the SPF 15 version in the morning and the original version at night. They're both perfect.
This is the gold standard for a daily moisturizer with retinol. I've used it for ten years and even got my husband using it, too! It combats wrinkles, keeps pores clean and small, isn't heavy, and has no fragrance (why, why, why does Neutrogena not make all of its products fragrance-free?). I am regularly taken for being younger than my real age and am convinced this has been a big help, along with not overdoing sun exposure. For the last couple of years I've used Renova at night - not every night, but several times a week - and that's been great in combination with this product as my daytime moisturizer. I don't really understand the concerns about SPF 15 not being high enough if you are just running around in your regular daily routine, and especially if your makeup also contains an SPF - presumably if you are going to the beach or to play tennis, etc., you would put on a dedicated sunscreen with a higher SPF. One wonderful thing about this product is that the low price lets you feel better about splurging on other high-end items! I hope they never stop making it or add fragrance. It is the best!!!
OK, so I'm willing to buy this off eBay from the States, I love it that much!
Sinks in perfectly, no issues with it under makeup.
My only gripe is that it could do with a higher SPF.
Was converted to this when I met up with my friend from the States and I hadn't seen her in a while. She's heading towards 40; and her skin looks amazing (plus she's a smoker); I asked her what she uses, and she said to me she'd been using this Neutrogena for the last ten years, twice a day.
Straight away, I got her to post me some from America!
I was 27 when I first started using it, one year on - can't see an obvious difference at all, but I feel that it's going to be one of those "wake up when I'm 40 and realise how good I still look" moments. I have faith in this product - you should see my friend and how good she looks! :D
I'm on my 3rd tube of this and I love love this product. The lotion is of a whipped consistency. Very light, airy, sinks into my skin very well. I have combo/oily skin and it doesn't leave me oily but rather well moisturized. I use this only in the AM bc i've started using philosophy help me at night. I used to use this at night and in the AM and had no problems with it.
Yes, initially I was slightly (very slight) dry around my lips and cheek area but that quickly went away. (start using it every other night if flaking persists).
It has retinol in it so I know its doing its job. My face is smoother, the texture looks better already (my friend commented on how nice my skin has been looking) ^_^ The acne scars on my face are slowly fading. Wish they would fade faster though.
No breakouts so far. For $15 this isn't bad at all, a lot better than the higher end brands (tried them also). My one gripe is the packaging. The metal tube is awful. Once I was down to the very last of it, the tube broke a bit and it started oozing out.
This is my daytime moisturizer. I like that it has a small amount of retinol and sunscreen in it. It doesn't clog pores or give me those little white bumps under the skin. It absorbs quickly and makeup goes on smoothly over it. I can't remember how much it is but after trying all that EL reg stuff it is a bargain.
