For the past few years, I have tried other moisturizers and I keep coming back to this one. I have extremely acne-prone skin and break out if my face is too oily or too dry. This keeps my face balanced. Perfectly moisturized and plump, while not making me break out. This is my HG of moisturizers, and the price is much better than Neutrogena. It used to be a few dollars cheaper at WalMart, but it's still worth the money.

What triggered me to purchase this is because it was being compared to the Neutrogena one and had the same ingredients for a lower price. My skin is very sensitive and it even states in can be used on sensitive skin but it made my skin itch and have a burning sensation :( worse thing ever. Don't recommend but that's just me.

I had just started using Mary Kay time wise and unfortunately I received the oily to combo when i was suppose to receive the dry to combo. My face was so dry it was chapping my eyes and gums, I needed an immediate fix. I found the great reviews for this product and felt immediate relief as soon as I started using it. I have very sensitive skin and have to be very careful what i put in my face but this moisturizer is a dream for me.

This Equate oil-free sensitive skin moisturizer is the best one I have used to date! I tend to have oily skin that is very acne-prone. So EVERY moisturizer I used has not been conducive to my skin type. Either it contained irritating acne-fighting ingredients, clogging SPF, too thick, too greasy, caused breakouts, can only use @certain times of the day, can’t be used under makeup, DIDN’T moisturize, or a culmination of all these shortcomings. So I stopped using moisturizers because I couldn’t find one that worked effectively with my skin. As a result, my skin suffered because it was dry, with a visibly unhealthy and uneven skintone. I came across this moisturizer because I found it in my mom’s beauty cabinet. I read the bottle and decided to try it- I went to Wal-Mart the next day and bought it for $7(4 oz.).
I have been using this moisturizer for 5 days(total of 15x ,so far) and it’s the perfect moisturizer to my daily skin care regimen. I use it 3x/day (morning/after work/ and night) on freshly cleansed skin and experience NO issues. My texture AND tone has improved so much-I’m quickly on my way to a FOUNDATION-FREE SUMMER- what girl doesn't want that?!? :-P

Things I LOVE about this moisturizer:
• Pump top: hygienic/dispenses the perfect amount for face and neck/prevents over-use.
• Feather-weight but heavy moisturizing
• Extremely smooth texture/ Glides onto skin and absorbs quickly
• No greasiness/ oiliness
• Sans irritating acne-fighting ingredients (i.e. benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid)
• I DON’T have to supplement it with a heavier emollient, such as Aquaphor.
• I wear it in everyway: day, night, alone, under makeup; and each way it works perfectly.
• Perfectly and evenly moisturizes(i.e.:no dry patches with oily spots)
• Perfect moisturizer to my daily skin care regimen/ use this moisturizer 3x/day
• No allergic reaction
• NO SPF (I love that- SPF tends to break me out)
• About $7 (4oz.)
• For sensitive skin
• Oil free
• Non-comedogenic
• No strong fragrance
• Clean, straightforward packaging

I will NEVER stop buying or using this product. Hopefully Equate never alters the ingredients or drops this product from manufacturing!

If you check the ingredients list as compared to the Neutrogena version it is literally exactly the same stuff in the same order(the formula may not be exactly the same but it's the proportions). This moisturizer works excellently. It's left my face feeling soft and a lot healthier. This is also after years of abuse with absolutely no lotions or anything with poor makeup use and hot showers and drying soap etc., having only just recently beginnign to take care of myself. The only offputting factor is the strange smell, but it doesn't linger.

I like this product. I've repurchased this several times. Me and my mom were trying to find an affordable oil free moisturizer that would do the job and my aunt suggested this one. We bought one and have repurchased it 2 times soon to be 3 (I'm almost done with the bottle) the only complaint I really have is the pump isn't the best, and that it has a light greasy feeling within the first 5 minutes you apply it, but it absorbs into the skin afterwards. Not a GH item but diffidently worth a try and great quality for the price.

I have acne prone skin that gets dry and weird this time of year. This is the only thing I've found that works and doesn't break me out. I've even tried the expensive brands.

This is a great product! I was kinda iffy about it because I think equate is cheap but after reading the reviews I had to give it a go and wow was I pleased! I have very oily skin and my makeup never looks nice after an hr of applying, but with this it sits on my face beautifully, I never once had to blot my face! It's magic and I'm not even over reacting! Also great price compared to neutrogena, $4/$5 difference. I definitely recommend.

I use this every single morning. It's cheap and doesn't make my face super oily. This is my favorite moisturizer for the morning.

I haven't been impressed by Equate skincare in the past, but this is the perfect as-needed moisturizer for my combination sensitive skin. It doesn't break me out or feel greasy as long as I apply conservatively, and I love that it's fragrance free! I gently massage a dime-sized dollop or 2 into my face and neck, including (very gently) under my eyes, although I avoid anything between my upper lash line and eyebrows, as I imagine it would sting a bit if I sweated and it got in my eyes.
