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.
Not sure exactly how effective the sunscreen is, but this is a good moisturizer. Goes on creamy and without irritation. Fragrance-free, but doesn't smell horrible.
Kind of pricey, so try to get it at a wholesale store.
I ADORE this cream from Neutrogena! I switched from Clinique’s Dramatically Moisturizing Gel because of the great reviews of the Healthy Skin Anti Wrinkle Cream with SPF 15.
I noticed my skin REALLY improved. I don’t break out from it; it helps reducing redness immediately and I found that it heals all those acne scars faster. I think some might be fading but I can’t really say if it’s this or the TBS Fading lotion.
Anyway, my skin… Ah, I’ve tried EVERYTHING until I came across this. Before, it was dull and I had a few fine lines which are now reduced. But then again I’m only 22 years old. Of course, the first time I put it on, it stung a little but now I put a considerably amount of it without feeling any discomfort. I like the packaging as well and the price is right (JUST) for the product you get. I always come back to this and I’ve tried from Olay to Lancôme and even Chanel.
The only con to it (FOR ME) is that I feel my skin is just a bit shiny but perhaps it’s due to the SPF 15. It doesn’t matter, my skin loves this! I wake up with a clearer skin everyday :-)
This is my one and only HG product (so far), and tomorrow I will be going out to buy my 5th tube. I bought this after the great reviews I read and because I needed something with SPF in it. IMO, it is a little on the expensive side (about $15 at CVS), but I'm a broke college student; I'm still going to buy this though because it works so great. Because of the retinol, it has definitely evened up my skin tone more than I had ever hoped. It has also surprisingly helped my acne so much. I use it every morning under my CeraVe moisturizer, but that's because I have super dry skin, and on its own, this isn't moisturizing enough for me. I love the whipped consistency; my skin really absorbs it. I do hate the metal tube. It's hard to roll it down to get as much of the product as possible. Sometimes it cracks a little and can even scratch me. This product is definitely worth a try, and I will continue repurchasing.
First of all, I should say that I use the Rite Aid version of this product, which costs less and works great. I use this product as a night cream, since it only contains SPF 15 which in my opinion is way too low in general, but especially low for a cream containing retinol (which makes skin more sensitive to the sun). If I ever decided to use this product during the day I would layer a product with SPF 45 over it.
But anywho, this moisturizer absorbs very, very well and doesn't make my combination skin greasy at all. My fine lines have been noticeably reduced since I started using this. It also seems to help with my (mild) acne and the overall condition of my skin. My skin is more even-toned and seems very smooth and supple. (FYI: I also usually use Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer every day, which also contains retinol so I think that has contributed to my skin's improved condition as well.)
As stated in my review for the night cream, I use these together. I like to apply the daily cream before my make up, although a higher spf would be nice. (Wait is there one?) This helps smooth my make up and helps make it look flawless.
For some reason, I keep thinking it might be making me a tad oily, but that could just be the weather. It's not enough reason for me to stop using this stuff as I have searced high and low for a great moisturizer.
This is def many steps up from my clinique dramatically different face lotion....
