Sunscreen -Neutrogena -Sheer Zinc Sunscreen Face Lotion SPF 50

Sheer? Don't be fooled. I've started calling this my "mime makeup." I get a giggle out of putting this on at first because when I smear this thick, paint-like sunscreen on my face at first, it looks like I'm applying warpaint.

I'm glad for the sun protection and everything, but not the fact it turns my face a different tone than the rest of my body. I'm pretty yellow, this ends up making me much more pink due to the blue hue, on top of the fact it leaves a cast. The only way to reduce the cast would be to apply less than you actually need to get SPF 50--which defeats the point of wearing it.

Love the texture and coverage of this product.

This would be my HG foundation if it weren’t for these two things:

Please re-engineer the package so that there is a pump or some way to dispense the product. I actually hurt my hand banging the bottle against my palm in order to get out some of the foundation, which happens to be very thick.

Also, the lightest shade is too pink. Please introduce a shade for us ladies on the more golden side of the spectrum.

Wow, never thought I'd love a moisturizer this much. There are very few moisturizers I use up, most are still half full. I have bought this several times, it's that good, and oh so light, cool, feels unbelievable.

Broke my skin out. At first I thought the patches of pimples were because it was my time of the month, but then I realized... I never break out with itchy pimples all over chin and cheeks during my period... Would not recommend.

I've been struggling with mild back and chest acne for as long as I can remember, tried countless different products and nothing has worked as well as this. I tried Phisophex, Cetaphil, Tea Tree acne wash, benzoyl peroxide wash, Mario Badescu AHA body wash, Paula's Choice, you name it... This is seriously the only thing that works for me, which means my skin responds best to salicylic acid. It's not sold in Australia so I have to buy it online, but I'm so happy I finally tried it after reading mixed reviews because my back acne has reduced dramatically since using this, and I don't think it's just a coincidence. It lathers a lot so a little goes a long way, it smells great and it's not drying. When I'm stressed I pick at my back, and now I find that there is very little to pick at! I've always been iffy about Neutrogena because it's cheap, but it's so so relieving to know that this actually works for me. I dry brush my whole body and my back before I have a shower, and then wash with this every day. I'm so happy it works :) I finally feel less insecure about my skin.

Not for my dry skin. It is ultra light-weight and does not moisturize as a full weight day and/or night cream.

For some reason I kept trying to make this work for my skin as so many people recommended it to me, but sadly it just does nothing for my dry, sensitive face. It barely moisturizises, I actually felt that sometimes it was drying my skin out, even though I always topped it with aquaphor/vaseline. I just ended up constantly having to apply products both under and over it in order for my skin to feel hydrated enough. I did appreciate that fact it's fragrance free and can imagine oilier types loving the matte, almost primer like finish but for my skin it was completely ineffective!


Sunscreen -Neutrogena -Sensitive Skin Sunblock Lotion SPF 60

I am NC25, combination skin with yellow undertone. Left a white cast but did not burn. Spreads easily. No irritation. Washes off easily. Bought this for my family who have sensitive skin. Since no reapplication is needed for this chemical sunscreen, I am able to put a thin film of bronzer to darken the white cast. Seems like a lot of work so returned it and will try tinted ones. May be better for lighter skin tones. Still prefer my La Roche Posay tinted.

Edit: Someone asked me to compare this to the SPF 30 version. I don't prefer one over the other. Spf 30 version has alcohol denat lower on the ingredient list so that's a plus. But... it also causes you to compromise your SPF level.

---

For a drugstore sunscreen, this definitely isn't horrible. It preforms similar to asian sunscreen brands. The price is a steal... I'd pay the same for about 1/3 the amount of product usually. This isn't cakey, in fact the formula helps my (very matte) foundation glide on. I believe the Glycerin (listed as 2nd ingredient) is to thank for that. It *feels* hydrating and does eventually absorb. You can't detect it under my make up. While it doesn't keep me matte, I don't get oily any earlier than without it. And yet...I likely won't repurchase.

Why?

Because Neutrogena went with chemical UV filters and a boatload of drying alcohol for the ingredient list. My face is left burning red after a day of using this and it literally stings. If you have normal - tough skin, go for it. It's a great option for those who can tolerate asian sunscreen formulations (many have the same cons) but don't want to order from overseas. If you have sensitive or rosacea-prone skin, save yourself some pain.

I will note I am acne-prone and this sunscreen caused no break outs for me. However - I've seen complaints elsewhere. Some of you with acne-prone skin might find the glycerin or hyaluronic acid to be too emollient for your skintype. Your mileage may vary.

Masks -Neutrogena -Hydro Boost Hydrating Gel Sheet Mask

on 5/12/2018 1:04:00 AM

Great idea, poor execution. The first mask I bought had separated from the backing sheets making almost impossible to find which side to apply to the face. Once applied these gel sheets come unstuck very easily and will flop right off your face if not careful. I wasted the first mask. The soft, silky feel of skin after is very nice. Skin feels and looks calm and hydrated afterwards. I also liked the Youthful Boost mask they do however it suffers from the same problems with mask design and application and I'm not really sure I'd buy again due to this.

Mascara -Neutrogena -Hydroboost Waterproof

on 5/11/2018 5:51:00 PM

The brush on this did not work with the formula. The mascara instead worked like hairspray on my lashes. How ever I curled them and then applied the mascara, that is how my lashes turned out. No separation or volume; just set lashes: so if the lashes were touching they were "set" as a duo or a clump. Maybe because it dries super fast. It sounds confusing until you try this mascara. I got no definition or build up/volume of mascara on my lashes. They were semi-soft in feel, however. I did have some smudging and flaking late in the day too. Overall this mascara is a skip.

I'm 20, I have normal-dry skin with acne on my cheeks and chin. The bumpy ones that never really come up. Tons of those.

This is the only thing that works for me now. I used to use a prescription but even that stopped working. Right now I'm starting an office job and need to look older so I've been using this every night for about 2 weeks.

My skin is the clearest it has been in like 7 years. I'm so pissed I didn't know about this product sooner. I've never had skin this clear or nice before. This is absurd. It works so well for me.

I can't even remember how long ago I started using this. I don't know about others but for me there definitely came a time when I became more aware of how to treat my skin nicely. I was still at an age where this product alone made my skin feel noticeably softer without any add-ons afterward. Those were truly the days. Of course as I got older, so many other choices came into view. More natural, and exotic ingredients presented themselves. Of those, Caudalie is still a standout. Even so, I am seeking more wallet friendly products of late. When I saw this in a travel size along with the sesame body oil, I decided they'd be a good stand in for the awful hotel toiletries in Chicago. It was cold and my skin was angry dry, but after showering with this stuff, I was playing spot the crepey skin! The wash itself was nicely moisturizing, but together with the oil it was just the trick. Now, this is coming from someone who regularly uses concentrated lotions and washes with fruit acids, as the message has been for a while that they are what improves aging skin. But I think I'm burning out on the hype of those things. After a good start with them, I'm noticing considerably less results of late. The Neutrogena products may not be packed full of skin loving ingredients, but nonetheless, the formulations are well done and gentle. The fragrance is nicely "there", while not overbearing. It almost seems stupid not to buy it on a regular basis rather than keep it as a treat. And yet, that's what I do. Go figure...

Blush -Neutrogena -Healthy Skin Blush

on 5/10/2018 3:03:00 PM

I picked this up from a clearance bin for $4, I believe it's being discontinued. I got the color Flushed, a neutral (neither warm/orange nor cool/pink) reddish pinkish shade, rather unique. It looks a bit scary in the pan---I suspect this would work especially well on deeper skin tones--but as I'm fair (neutral leaning cool), I adjust by applying such a pigmented/bright blush with a very light hand. I pick up just a whisper of color on the brush, then swirl in a clean palette, tap or blow off any excess, and sweep onto my cheeks. "Flushed" is the perfect name for this color, a Snow White just in from the cold look, without being "too much." I found this to wear as well as any of my other blushes, perhaps 10 hours without touchups.
