I was looking for a new moisturizer to try out since I had ran out of my clinique one. I've never tried drugstore moisturizers, clinique was the only one I could use because it was so good to my skin. I had a coupon for this purpose moisturizer with spf in it now I hardly go out I'm always indoors, I'm basically a vampire I guess. Well anyways I got it because I had really loved the face cleanser and I had a coupon for this so I was like why not try it. I hate it. It feels so greasy and it's like your applying sunscreen I mean of course it has spf in it but I just hated it. I don't think it's worth the price. It feels heavy on my skin, it doesn't do much my skin was still dry and i will never repurchase this again.

This is the best moisturizer for the daytime! it is inexpensive, non pore-clogging, not oily, but still provides moisture for thirsty skin. Ieaves skin healthy, and is not heavily advertised, generally a mark of a product that can sell itself.

I'm with all the naysayers on this one. I never got to try out the old formula that everyone is raving about but I sure dislike this new one. It is so thick and heavy, leaves a disgusting greasy feel to my face and made my forehead break out in a ton of white and red zits. I have never really had acne in my life- until this. Thanks Johnson and Johnson! I will not be repurchasing.

Really liked this product. Was pleasantly surprised! Good amount of SPF for everyday. I normally wear a foundation with SPF on top

I've been a long time Purpose Dual Treatment Moisture Lotion user. Since I was 16 to be exact. My skin would get small bumps, like clogged pores and I never understood why. I started researching "non-comedogenic" and found out the truth about ingredients listed in non-comedogenic items.

Purpose's ingredients has changed. Before, it used to contain octyl palmitate, which was rated a 4 (5 being the highest for pore clogging). Now, when I checked the ingredients, there's nothing pore clogging about this lotion. They have taken out octyl palmitate. Yay!

So....yes, I would buy this over...and over again. This is a true non-comedogenic lotion.

I have used this purpose moisturizer faithfully for several years. I like the simple pump instead of a flip-cap and the light moisturization that is always perfectly absorbed. I still notice some shine later in the day, but no product has ever made that go away and it's not too noticeable. Most of all, I love that it doesn't make my skin break out. Basically, it is an easy to find, under $10 moisturizer that just moisturizes.

Some time ago though, I noticed that my eyes were starting to get irritated. I didn't make the connection because it did not happen immediately but progressed as the day went on. They would burn and sting, and tears would well up. I went to the eye doc and now wear glasses at work because of a mild astigmatism but it continued. I started trying different allergy meds but that didn't seem to make a difference. I stopped wearing mascara. Finally I was on track to see a doc about some allergy testing for whatever obscure thing I was clearly allergic to, when on a whim I switched to using my nighttime moisturizer regularly during the day. Immediately my eye irritation ceased. Not cool, J&J. Now I have to find a new moisturizer.

Doesn't make my sensitive skin sting it turn red. It's a bit heavy, so it's not my favorite moisturizer. The pump is handy and great at preventing contamination. (putting germs in the lotion) Which can be harmful to skin. The pump clicks close so it's convenient for travel. I mostly use this as a back up when I want to give my skin a break of retinols; in the summer months when lotion just melts off, so that I don't waste my pricier stuff; and mostly for my teen daughter.

I am reviewing based on a sample.

This moisturizer has a heavy suncreeen smell to it. I could get past that, but this moisturizer also made my skin tingle. I don't know exactly how to describe it... an uncomfortable chemically tingle? And my skin is not even sensitive.
Once absorbed, my skin was soft and smooth, but it still felt weird and cold.

I will not purchase the full size.

I have pretty dry but extremely sensitive skin. This is my definitely favorite moisturizer because of how gentle it is and how well it distributes moisture to quickly be absorbed by your skin. I always knew neutrogina was a amazing skin company, buy when I used their moisturizer, my skin completely freaked out in reaction and burning. This lotion was my savior. I highly suggest you put this on before bed after washing your face, this is what I do everryyy night. the next morning, your face will feel like baby skin.

My skin is oily and prone to breakouts. My dermatologist put me on this product when I was in high school to clear up my complexion and it worked beautifully. That was 20 years ago, and it's all I've used since.

This product provides lightweight moisture, yet half a pump is all I need for a daily application, so it lasts for months. It goes on even and smooth. And the SPF helps keep the sun from damaging my fair skin.

That said, I'm now older and wiser, and am concerned about the ingredients in the products I use every day. I was disappointed to realize that my beloved moisturizer contained parabens and a nasty chemical sunscreen called oxybenzone. I'm at a point in my life where I'd like to eliminate paraben and formaldehyde preservatives, and replace chemical sunscreens with physical (zinc oxide/titanium dioxide). When I contacted Johnson & Johnson about my concerns, I received a somewhat off-putting form letter that simply stated their company complies with all government product regulations. For that reason alone, I can't give this product 5 lippies. However, until I find a suitable replacement with healthier ingredients that doesn't break me out (which I have yet to discover), I will continue to use it.
