Honest reviews


Old faithful

I’ve been using this product for years and I always find myself coming back to it. Sometimes I go looking for something new but end up disappointed and upset that I ever thought to leave it (it’s as close to a husband as I ever want to get).What I like about it:1. SPF is there. It’s not a lot but it’s there. With my other SPF makeup, I feel adequately protected.2. It absorbs quickly without taking everything with it. My skin stays soft and supple all day.3. It doesn’t smell bad at all.4. IT DOESN’T BREAK ME OUT.5. My skin is extremely sensitive and with regular microdermabrasion, I am sometimes left with red, flaky skin that needs to be treated with love and care. This product doesn’t exacerbate what my skin goes through and even also layers well with other moisturizers when I need backup.6. On days when I’ve gone without foundation and wearing only this, I’ve gotten complimented on how “luminous” my skin looks.Overall, it’s an awesome product and I recommend it. As someone who also uses mostly “high end” products, I am amazed with how rarely Neutrogena lets me down. I thank them for saving me some serious green!

A Great Addition to Your Skin Care

Neutrogena oil free moisture SPF 15 is amazing. The bottle has a little pump that makes it very easy to dispense. The product goes very far and you only need a little bit. This product is great for people with dry/semidry or combination skin. It helps combat dry skin in the places that need it without adding additional oil. It is also good to put under makeup. It causes much less foundation to be used up due to the fact that the skin is already moisturized. It also has SPF 15 which is great for the summer when you’re not outside for long periods of time. (For long periods of sun exposure, I would suggest a higher SPF.) This product does smell a bit like sunscreen so there’s no secret to what you’re using!

Not what it says it is…

I purchased this facial moisturizer recently, as well as farther back a year or so. Both times I have ended up returning it, mind you I didn’t purchase this on Amazon, but rather stores in-person at stores like Walmart and Target. This moisturizer says it is hypo-allergenic although I don’t buy it. I am allergic to basically everything and rely on mainly baby products. I have very fair, sensitive skin and acne. I do not find this moisturizes, but rather burns one’s skin horribly. After using the moisturizer, I had eroded, scabby sores all over my face. I think it made my skin much worse, although I am not supposed to be allergic to any of the ingredients. Also, for you fellow fair-skinned folks, it makes your skin look very red and ruddy in a bad way. Do not buy this, you will regret it, or at least I did.

Great product

I used this product for years before switching to the Neutrogena Healthy Skin formulation, which contains glycolic acid. I loved this moisturizer. I did not find it too oily or greasy – one of the reasons that I switched to it was becuase I found it to be much lighter than the Clinique Daily Moisturizing Lotion that I had been using. I could even use this product during the summer, when it is very hot and humid where I live. Neutrogena makes great products. Highly recommended.

An excellent drug-store moisturizer

I have to start out by saying that I am really not a fan of Neutrogena products. This is one of the exceptions. Three days after starting Accutane, I ran out of my expensive moisturizer (Physiodermie – Oily Skin Cream – 50ml) and had to run to the drugstore to buy moisturizer. I had a meltdown because they didn’t have Olay in stock and bought Aveeno, Cetaphil, and this. This is the best, by a long shot. It feels nearly as good as my expensive one, but it doesn’t sink into the skin quite as fast. The only downside is the smell, which is of clay. I don’t mind it, since that proves it is fragrance free– I just wish it was a little less strong.My favorite drugstore moisturizer is stillOlay Regenerist Deep Hydration Regenerating Cream, 1.7-Fluid Ounce, but I would definitely repurchase this neutrogena moisturizer!

Awesome for sensitive skin!

I have sensitive skin that seems to be becoming more and more sensitive as time goes on. I’ve tried lots of different products claiming to be great for sensitive skin, but those claims don’t usually hold true (they either make me break out or itchy or have scents, etc. in them that are irritating….or are for more mature skin) but this stuff does! It moisturizes without being greasy or causing irritation. I’ve been using it for about a year now and I’ve never had any problems with it. Usually lotions will cause me to break out in a purple patchy rash around my mouth, but this doesn’t at all. It does need a few minutes to really absorb into the skin after applying it though (at least before starting to put on make up or whatever). Definitely recommend!

I bought this for use on my face which has really bad Rosacea. It made things much worse and really did not help with moisture.

Henrietta Centerfield, UT

Great everyday moisturizer!

For years I have struggled with dry, acne-prone skin, and all moisturizers I tried caused me to break out, left my face feeling oily, or would wear-off and would need to be re-applied throughout the day. This is the first moisturizer I have tried that works for my sensitive skin without any of those problems.This product dissolves quickly without oily residue and leaves my skin feeling soft for the entire day (until I wash my face my again). I use this product twice a day (morning and night) after I wash my face, and I love it! If you are struggling to find a good facial moisturizer, I would definitely recommend this product!

neutrogena oil free moisture sensitive

I am 58 years old. People tell me I look like I am in my 40’s. I use this along with the very ultra gentle cleanser. No breakouts, moisture and seems to lesson the lines to where you don’t look in the mirror anymore and go ugh! How about that for this price!

Lina Pelican, LA

WOW Fast Shipping & Delivery

Got it way before estimated time this product is what I needed will tell you all later how it’s been doing. my face is quite red allot of the time.Update: Makes my face feel good and soft take care of the red. Good price too.

Cynthia Challenge, CA

Totally Impressed!!

I have oily skin to the point where I avoided using moisturizer as every one that I tried in the past made by skin even oilier. It was embarrassing! I decided to give this one a try because of what it says it does and because I somehow developed small patches of dry skin on my face that needed to be treated, even though I was still oily. This moisturizer is absolutely amazing! My skin feels so smooth after application with no greasy after feel and I am totally shocked to see how well it has kept my makeup in place. I did not have to blot once during the day while at work. It’s been 12 hours since I applied it today and my face still looks great. This product really works!!! I am overjoyed that I decided to give it a try and highly recommend it.

Does what it’s supposed to

I don’t know what to expect of this other than a clean moisturizer. It moisturizes and doesn’t leave a bad smell or oil, but it’s really nothing special. I would probably look for something cheaper next time.

Harriett Worthington, IA


I used to use the Neutrogena moisturizer for sensitive skin, but decided to try this since my skin does tend to be oily. The lotion itself is very thin. Instead of my normal one application, with this lotion I need to apply twice, otherwise my face is dry and flaky–once after getting out of the shower, and another time before putting on my make up. The 2 stars is for the fact that my skin does look and feel good using this lotion, but there are plenty others that do just as good a job with just half the amount.

Mai Canaan, CT


another discntinued item from amazon, i love this moisterizer, need it to return though – seems like Amazon is not carrying Neutrogena products at all anymore. Very disappointing.

Arline Hamilton, VA

Great lightweight moisture

This moisturizes my skin well without making it oily or making me break out. But it’s not heavy-duty, so I recommend having a more intensive moisturizer on hand to use once a week or so to really keep your skin from getting flaky.

Carolyn Brooklet, GA

Good, but no SPF

I had meant to order the SPF version, which comes out of the pump a white color. This is a creamy-whitish. Nothing wrong with that, but I need the SPF coverage and I actually use it to lighten up my light tinted moisturizer…I’m kinda pale, so I will stick with the SPF next time. That said, I still use this sometimes at night or if I know I will be bumming around the house all day with no fun-in-the-sun. It is lightweight and, like all Neutrogena products, of high quality.

Blanche Bell City, LA

This helps my skin.

This stuff helps my skin and doesn’t break me out. It is more like a lotion than a cream. I like how it has sunscreen in it to protect my face.

Antionette Flatonia, TX

Great stuff!

I have used this periodically over the years and really like it. This particular purchase was for a male friend who told me he swears by it and uses it everyday.

Young Tillatoba, MS

Great product, no smell or oil build up, low price, and easy to mix with foundation for a more sheer look

I use this product daily, as well, I mix it with my thick foundation for light sheer summer coverage. I have dry sensitive skin so this product has been perfect for me. I can’t recommend a better daily facial lotion, especially for the price.

Gail Sandia Park, NM


I typically love Neutrogena products, so I was really disappointed in this. My biggest issues are:-It’s kind of watery, yet leaves your face looking/feeling very greasy. Almost like applying sunscreen.-It has a really nasty, cloying smell (like sunscreen).-Doesn’t seem to really moisturize, just sits on top of your skin. This makes it difficult to apply make up over it.I now use Clinique dramatically different lotion, and I LOVE it. I do not recommend this product.

Jessie Lamar, IN

absorb very nicely

Works really nicely. It does not make your face oily at all but give enough moisture where it feels really nice. I definitely recommend this product.

Keisha Galivants Ferry, SC

Light and Unscented Moisturizer

Of the thousands of moisturizers that I’ve tried, this one has got to be the best. It goes on lightly and doesn’t feel at all heavy. There is no funky scent. It does the job and it makes your skin better. I even recommend this moisturizer for peels because it really helps speed up and clean up the peeling process. Overall, a great addition to any night regimen.

Best Ever for DRY SKIN

I have 30 years old, white female. Had acne all thru my 20s, it’s clearing up the older Im getting but this moisturizer has been a LIFE saver. I have tried so many other products out there, Simple, Clinique, Coconut Oil, Oil of Olay, etc… and nothing worked. They were too greasy, too smelly and caused breakouts or over drying and made my skin feel tight. Read many reviews on this, purchased this at my local Walmart and have been IN LOVE with this ever since. I use before my makeup every morning. 1 pump is plenty- apply to face, let dry (5 mins or so) and then apply makeup. I use a Neutrogena Night cream as a night moisturizer, but this would work fine too! So happy with this. No break outs, leaves my skin feeling wonderful and just enough moisture to NOT be oily! Deff reccommend this as a try! : )

Angelica Cazenovia, NY

super soft skin

im 13 and i love neutrogena products. i bought this from target and it was $10. i have been using it only for a little while but i noticed it made my skin super soft!! and spf in a moisturizer is awesome, and the fact that it is no comedogenic (srry idk how to spell that??) i would totally recommed this, i have sort of oily skin and i think i just need to buy some blotting wipes or something like that, elf ahve some 150 for $3!! but i think that theres nothing that will stop the oil from coming out through the moisturizer or your makeup. if that makes sense. hope this helped 🙂 good luck

Patricia Sterling, PA

Only moisturizer my face agrees with.

I have very acne prone skin and this stuff keeps the oil down and really keeps my face soft and moisturized. Love it.

Abby Lamoille, NV

Good moisturizer for Sensitive Skin

This moisturizer was good, did not cause any acne, provides a somewhat dewy finish. Not the best texture and perhaps alittle bit liquid like. A decent buy.

Bianca Stockdale, OH

Just ok – Neutrogena has much better moisturizers. This one can be too oily/shiny for daytime use

This is an ok moisturizing lotion, but Neutrogena has others, that are even better. Their oil-free moisture lotion seems to go on too thick (compared to other products) and gives my skin a greasy, shiny, look when worn under makeup. I use it instead as a nighttime moisturizing crème before bed (because of it’s thick consistency and shine).There are times when my skin gets especially dry and the moisture provided here, would not be enough. I would have to keep re-applying and re-applying on my especially dry skin, sometimes many times throughout the day. (I would need a more intense moisturizing product during those times). The moisture provided from this product isn’t always enough.Neutrogena has a lot of very excellent skin moisturizing products. I also use their “Healthy Defense daily moisturizer” with tint, to use underneath makeup and add a touch of color to the face. That one goes on a little thick too, but it’s worth it to have a natural glow. And it is more of a matte finish, without the oil or shine.My favorite is the “Neutrogena Visibly Even moisturizer” which I am able to apply both day and night, as it goes on very smooth, thin, and light. I find it most excellent for daytime use and it even provides a nice healthy glow. The “visibly even” Neutrogena product has added essential soy’s and extra moisturizing ingredients to deal with even the driest of skins. It contains just the right amount of moisturizers to help my skin on the most driest of days, without being too thick and creamy, or greasy. It also covers skin blotches and dark spots as well.Before purchasing this facial moisturizer for the first time, I would take a look at some others that are out there. Do some comparasing and get the product that is right for you. There are so many out there to choose from, and Neutrogena, in particular, offers a wide array of skin products, for practically any skin type. This model is just their most basic one.

Like it

I order this product for my husband. Before we got married he wouldn’t bother to put anything on his face! Once he started seeing me use all my lotions and potions he asked for my recommendation. He has combination skin and since neutrogena is very hypoallegenic and I got this cream for him. He’s been using it regularly for about a year now and loves it!

Claudia Elnora, IN

Works for me!

I used to have more of a dry/normal skin type but as changes over time, and for me mine has been changing to be more on the oily side and where occasional breakouts have now become a persistent thing. For a while I have already been using cleansers that target acne and didn’t see much improvement. It took me a while to realize that maybe it was time I changed my moisturizer too (Duh!). My previous moisturizers were those for normal/dry and those that claim to be "for all skin types" (lies!!!!) so this is my first time trying a moisturizer that targets oily/combo skin.I’ve used this for only 2 days now but I have felt and seen instant results. I truly believe it has helped keep the oils at bay and in turn keep my acne from continuing to swell or creating more. I was concerned that it would have more of a drying affect and leave any dry spots noticeable, but surprisingly it did not!A lot of pros:
• Lightweight
• Unscented
• Not greasy
• Not sticky
• Dries almost a matte finish so you don’t look shiny
• While it helps to stop the oil from surfacing, it still keeps your skin very moisturized.I’m pretty impressed with this moisturizer. Other moisturizers tend to leave your skin sticky and shiny but this did not and it just made my skin look like bare, ungreasy, unshiny skin!! (just with pimples that are hopefully leaving soon).In case you were wondering:I use this with the Neutrogena Deep Clean Cream Cleanser and a Murad cleanser that I switch between. Also, I find that powder/mineral foundation has helped to add that extra layer of oil stopping fighting power.
