This is one of my favourite products from Neutrogena. It has been available for at least two decades and it still a classic I turn to when I want a basic, no-frills moisturiser that will leave skin feeling healthy, nourished and well moisturised! Please be aware this is not an "active" product. By that I mean it contains no active ingredients other than the Soy Sterols. It is a base of mostly glycerin, petrolatum and Soybean Sterols. All three beautifully ingredients that will moisturise you skin beautifully on the cheap. It comes in a clinical looking white bottle that you pump out, I find two pumps to be the perfect amount for face, neck and chest. You can either use this morning or night and before applying your cosmetics. If you must use this in the day, then I recommend using it before sunscreen but just be aware there is an Oil-Free moisture product with SPF 15+ available, but if that is not moisturising enough that you can definitely layer that over this product. A sensitive skin is sensitive in that it will react to almost anything! This includes unnecessary fragrance (synthetic or "essential oils"), too many filler ingredients and too many preservatives. The preservative system in this product is stable and non-irritating. In fact this entire formula is non-irritating hence it's allocation to those with a sensitive skin. Some skins don't require anything other than basic moisturiser ingredients to look and act healthy. This maybe the product you are just looking for. On the other hand this is the perfect moisturiser for those with combination to normal skins who do not want to use a traditional cream, a lotion texture like this absorbs beautifully into the skin without any form of greasiness. I like this as my summer, autumn and spring moisturiser, one that I apply after applying my Niacinamide, Retinol or Vitamin C serums. And ofcourse always before sunscreen if I am layering but I will mostly likely use the actual Oil-Free SPF 15+ product for that. The texture is water light and barely there, I think this can still be too much for those with oily or very oily skins so be careful. But for everyone else this is just perfect. I don't just limit its use to my face, I also use it on my body and hands. Thank you Neutrogena for making a basic, no-frills product for sensitive skin, it is a budget friendly, efficient life saver, this has now become a staple in my cabinet. I highly recommend this product.
