Cleansers -Neutrogena -Ultra Gentle Hydrating Cleanser

I see a surprising amount of negative reviews on this. I really like it. Its a nice, bland and gentle cleanser. No it doesnt remove heavy makeup, you need an oil cleanser prior to this but I use this in the AM and after my Banila cleanser and it works great for me.

Cleansers -Neutrogena -Ultra Gentle Hydrating Cleanser

The beautiful Lindsey Pelas swears by this, and I saw it at my dermatologist's office. The one I purchased said creamy formula, but I believe Neutrogena just released a newer version of this product. This isn't bad as a basic cleanser, but for the amount of makeup I wear, I really need a more effective product for my nighttime cleansing.


Sunscreen -Neutrogena -Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 55

Hate this sunscreen...

Only pros I have for this product is the high SPF and scent. The scent is light and fresh. Otherwise, I hate this sunscreen as I have already prefaced. I generally use body sunscreen when I'm going hiking and this makes me want to wash it off the second I put it on. It is opposite of what it claims. It's not ultra sheer because it gives a white cast when and after applying it. It is not dry touch because it feels sticky and tacky after its been applied. Not lightweight or clean feeling because it just sits on top of your skin. Not fast absorbing because it just feels like a mess.

Not sure how this is #1 dermatologist recommended...

Sunscreen -Neutrogena -Clear Face Sunblock Lotion SPF 55

on 8/16/2018 12:57:00 PM

I have found over the years that Johnson and Johnson is the best. Johnson and Johnson owns Nuetrogena, Aveeno, and Clean and Clear. Just like their discontinued product (Nuetrogena Sports Face Oil-Free SPF 70) this product works very well. I have said in my other posts that the Sports Face is great, I was on a vacation and not once did I experience a burn or acne. Let me tell you what I did. I used my Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser onto dry skin, directed on the bottle. A lot of people use this cleanser wrong and wonder why it doesn’t clean. You have to apply it to a dry skin and then rub for about thirty seconds or less would be best. Then you rinse off with water quickly. You can use this without water but from my experience I have experienced an itchy mess. My skin doesn’t do well when I don’t use water. I will get hives, or dermatitis. If you get rashes or itchy pimples it’s because there is an occlusive trapping your sweat and making a damp environment. Too much moisture causes dermatitis, yeast, etc. I have learned the hard ways. Next what I do after using my cleanser is I applied my Sports Face. I cleansed my face ONCE a day and applied this sunscreen. No pimples or rashes on my vacation. I had smooth skin. My skin looked great, also to prevent sun burn you have to apply every two hours because this is a chemical sunscreen, chemical sunscreens work for two hours and then need to be used again, do this if your on vacation or on the beach. So in replacement to the Sports Face is this. It works just as well because it contains SILICA. This is your secret ingredient against yeast, periodal dermatitis, acne, and whatever. SILICA has been proven to prevent acne. It’s sort of like any mineral found in powder foundation, it prevents damp environments. Now I know people think we need our skin to be moist, yes that’s true, but too much moisture causes itchiness and itchy bumps. I wish my skin could be moist all day, but it can’t so I need silica or some sort of mineral. So if you use this with Cetaphil you should clear up. If you have severe acne I suggest going to the dermatologist. Other products with silica are Vanicream Skin Cream (it has simethicone which has silica and dimethicone), Other Nuetrogena products like the oil free combo skin, etc. I know I need products with an absorbent like silica bc without it I get itchy. I’m like a baby that gets diaper rash, what solves it is silica, zinc, magnesium silicate, etc. That was the secret.

Currently I am using the Clean and Clear Dual Action Moisturizer with Sal. Acid and my Cetaphil cleanser at night, and before bed. Then morning I use this sunscreen and I do not wash my face in the morning. Too much washing your face will break you out, keep it to once a night, but that’s my suggestion.

I decided to use the Clean and Clear bc I realized I get a lot of dead skin build up. We all have dead skin build up, but some people have it more due to genetics, dry skin, or because our keratin is extra sticky. Doing this combination keeps my skin clear. I will update if the Clean and Clear causes dryness. This review is only on the sunscreen and Cetaphil. If you go on a trip and try what I said, you should be fine. It won’t work one hundred percent since everyone’s skin is different but it worked for me. Also if you wear makeup I don’t know if this method will work. Makeup can be causing your breakouts, especially if it’s occlusive and mixing in with dead skin cells, acne is from dead skin build up. Anyway I hope this review was helpful.

Sunscreen -Neutrogena -Sheer Zinc Sunscreen Face Lotion SPF 50

on 8/13/2018 3:37:00 PM

I don't understand the bad reviews. This is a terrific sunscreen. It is a high percentage of zinc, I don't expect it to be as elegant as some other formulations I have tried at higher price points. I personally don't mind the little bit of sheen. I would not call it a white cast. It does not bother me too much, I rub it in well, let it dry down. It works, it's a good price and it doesn't make my skin break out. Actually, Zinc sunscreens like this have always had the pleasant side effect of keeping my skin clear. I used Avene VHP for years before the formula was changed completely to Titanium Dioxide only. I apply sunscreen under a black light so I can see how well protected I am and this sunscreen passed that test with satisfaction.

I love this makeup remover. It removes everything effectively, and leaves a silky finish. It has no prevalent smell, and never causes irritation even if it gets into my eye.

Cleansers -Neutrogena -Ultra Light Cleansing Oil

This is the first cleansing oil I've tried and I'm underwhelmed by it. It doesn't fully remove my mascara (which my micellar water does), and it burns my eyes when I rinse it with the water. I also really dislike the smell it has of artificial fruit. I won't be repurchasing this, I'll be trying a different brand once I finish off this one.

Lotions/ Creams -Neutrogena -Hydroboost

on 8/12/2018 10:50:00 AM

I use coconut oil as my body moisturiser but it can take a while to absorb fully. If I'm in a rush to just want to top patches of dry skin I use this body lotion. It's light and easily absorbed but works well at keep my skin soft and moisturised. I even use it on my neck and decolletage in the morning. One of the better moisturisers and a large bottle lasts months

I've used the Hydroboost body lotion, which I really like this however I'm not convinced about this product. On a number of occasions I've felt my skin slightly stinging after using it. I don't have sensitive skin & it has no discernible fragrance but there must be an irritant present in it to cause a reaction. I can't say that I see my skin looks moisturised after using this - which I can after using the body lotion. Not one I would buy again

Treatments (Face) -Neutrogena -Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Spot Gel

on 8/11/2018 3:37:00 PM

foto

Purchased for my teenaged daughter in conjunction with the Rapid Clear Foaming Scrub to help her with hormonal acne breakouts and this has truly been a winning combination for her. She applied the spot gel to her blemishes (after cleansing) twice a day. The gel absorbs and leaves skin feeling as though you are wearing a smoothing primer which also makes any concealer or other makeup apply evenly and blemishes are less noticeable. Bear in mind this spot gel has 5% benzoyl peroxide so a bit stronger than the typical 2.5%. Product claims to reduce size of blemishes in as little as 2 hours. After the first day her acne was significantly reduced and after day 2, it was gone. Her skin is smooth in texture and I’m just glad she is no longer tempted to pick and cause damage leading to scars. Now she is using less concealer and foundation, rather having fun with makeup again instead of using it to cover up blemishes.

Cleansers -Neutrogena -Rapid Clear Foaming Scrub

on 8/11/2018 3:35:00 PM

Purchased for my teenaged daughter who is experiencing hormonal acne breakouts and her usual cleansers and treatment creams weren’t helping to clear up her skin which of course means she started to pick at her blemishes. This scrub contains salicylic acid and as a first step in her skin care routine it leaves her skin soft and clean without drying it out. She is super happy with the results. Her skin has cleared up and is completely blemish free but this is only one half of the equation. She paired this with the Neutrogena Stubborn Acne Spot Gel (see separate review) and it has not only cleared up her skin but buoyed her spirits and self-confidence in the process.


Sunscreen -Neutrogena -Clear Face Break-Out Free Liquid- Lotion Sunblock SPF 30

Very disappointing for a product that is targeted specifically for acne-prone skin. At first, I thought it was fine, but after a full day of wear, I noticed clogged pores. Then, I woke up the next day with huge, painful cysts on my face- and my skin is normally clear. It has been a week and I am still recovering from the damage. I am 100% it was this product because it was the only new thing I added to my routine.

Moisturizers -Neutrogena -Hydro Boost Water Gel

This felt heavy like a silicone primer and left a film. Felt gross and yet my skin still felt dry not moisturized. Wanted to like this as heard so much about it. I got about half way through the jar thinking I need to get used to a gel moisturizer...I would not buy this again.

BB Cream -Neutrogena -Visibly Even BB cream

on 8/7/2018 3:08:00 PM

When I started using this, it seemed perfect for summer -- it was a dead-on match for my skin, evened things out nicely, gave a nice, natural-looking finish, stayed on reasonably well. So when I went on vacation, packing light, it was the only foundation-type product I took along.

I wound up with a face full of zits, at least 1 new one every day, despite using salicylic acid moisturizer. Rarely have I had a product break me out so thoroughly -- and I'm hardly a kid; I'll be 60 in October. I shouldn't have to worry about wrinkles and zits simultaneously.
