I have tried so many of Neutrogena's spf products I am hoping one day they will make one that agrees with my oily skin. So far none have and this is no exception.
This one for sensitive skin felt just as suffocating as the others and it also gave me a weird warming sensation to my skin.

I always seem to come back to this moisturizer after trying others. My skin is very oily and this is one of the few moisturizers that doesn't break me out horribly.

earlier this year i needed a new moisturiser. back then, my skin was dry and sensitive. i had a few pimples here and there but nothing severe. i got this moisturiser on sale for $11. this moisturiser did a decent job moisturising but it broke me out. the packaging was a pump bottle, which was hygienic.

I was looking for an oil free moisturizer for the summer.I seen this and I like using sensitive skin products for their minimal ingredients and that they are fragrance free.I don't have sensitive skin so I can't say much about that part.This is very gentle on my skin,it's a thin moisturizer but it seems to give me the right amount of moisture. I hadn't seen any breakouts either,it's a great moisturizer for summer in my opinion.I believe it is SPF 15.I like to use mineral makeup over this so it's easier to reapply sunscreen throughout the day.

I bought this specifically because of its minimal ingredients, because I normally really like Neutrogena, and because it says for sensitive skin. I have no idea why...but it breaks me out. not horribly but just a few tiny pimples. I tried and tried but every time I use this I see bumps the next day. Ive tried to figure out what the ingredient is that causes acne or a reaction but I just cant. Maybe its just too thick. I always feel like I look shiny and feel sticky after putting it on. And its a lotion so that baffles me. Heavy night creams feel lighter than this. I love the packaging and its cheap so if this works for your skin then I envy you. But ill have to pass. I tried to use up the rest of this as a hand cream but it feels too sticky on my hands too. Tried it on my legs after shaving and it burned. I hate throwing things out but this is useless to me.

Needed moisturizer since I didnt have the money to go and buy the more expensive Bobbi Brown that i had been using.. Had a CVS coupon and took a chance on this guy and WOW i am impressed my skin is dry and sensitive very... It doesnt do good with sunscreens in moisturizers so finding one that doesn't upset my skin has been hard... this one is great light weight and non greasy and goes on smoothly... I use it along with the creamy hydrating cleanser and my skin is good.. for me the less the better.. glad i can use this as well as bobbi brown too.... will repurchase once i am out....

This is the second day I'm using this and I have not broken out. I this stays this way! I bought an expensive night cream and it broke me out in little spots. I soon realised that it was not catered for acneic skin. so I stoped using it. now because I was tight on money I saw this and bought it. I think I'm going to use the as a night cream to moisturize my skin, so hopefully it doesn't break me out.

I have mixed feelings about this moisturizer. I have gone through an entire bottle since the beginning of December up until now, day and night, pretty consistently. I like that it lasted as long as it did even with twice daily use, so that makes it a good value. However, the product itself was inconsistent. Some days I would put it on and it would absorb in a snap. Other days I could feel it lingering on my skin for a while after I put it on. One major positive is that it did not make my skin any oilier than it already is (which is very oily). I didn't particularly notice a difference in my skin, except that I started to break out shortly after using this, but I can't attribute it to this moisturizer solely because I started using other new products as well, so it may have been one of those. But I feel like it was this. The pump was good, except that it couldn't grab what was left at the bottom of the bottle. Overall, I think this was a fine product. I will probably continue to look for another moisturizer and may come back to this if I don't find anything else I like.

- Update - I was right. After a month of not using this moisturizer, I have seen a decrease in my acne. I think the cleanser I am using may still be contributing to it, but since I finished this product I have seen a decrease. Because of that, I lowered my rating of this product.

I have pretty dry skin in the fall, winter and spring. My skin is also somewhat sensitive and breaks out every once in a while. I don't know what came over me to try this in the first place because I am so glad I did. I had no idea this moisturizer would work so well and be so hydrating on my dry skin! Most "hydrating" moisturizers are either too heavy and thick, therefore causing this heavy, greasy feeling on my face, or most are too light and my dry patches still come through.

This is my HG moisturizer and I wear it during the day time and alone or under makeup. Its amazing and keeps skin hydrated without the oily feel. It is a bit pricey, but it does come with a PUMP, no weird colors or smell, AND I have seen many "knock off" brands sell this exact moisturizer with the exact formula and ingredients for a few bucks cheaper so as soon as I run out of this one, Im going to try the Kroger version.

I've been through several bottles of this stuff. It is just moisturizing enough that I rarely ever get dry patches, yet light enough that it doesn't make me feel oily at all. If I need extra moisture, I just dab an extra layer over specific regions. This moisturizer has never caused my skin to act up. I have come across a few more expensive moisturizers that are comparable to this one, perhaps a *little* better, but for the price, I will always choose this moisturizer. It's just not worth paying two or three times more for a product that is just marginally better than this. Also, I love the bottle. The pump gives out an appropriate amount of product, and can lock so that it's convenient to travel with. I would recommend that you don't throw out the bottle when product no longer comes out of the pump - open it up and manually take out the product, there's a lot left inside.
