Honest reviews


Awful, Be Careful

I thought this was a moisturizer, but it feels and smells more like sunscreen. Actually it smells exactly like sunscreen. After use, my skin get extremely oily. It burns and makes me break out, it feels like the $3 foundation you get at the department stores. I’ve never had a product irritate my skin. Also, my eyes have become very sensitive, and painful since using it. Not worth the gas it took to get to the store I bought it from. Will not use this again.

BURNS so badly!!! And I DON”T have sensitive skin.

I bought this product while I was on vacation (I had forgotten my regular SPF moisturizer). I do NOT have sensitive skin at all but this product burned my face so badly. I have never had a product hurt this much (OK maybe the super cheap foundation I bought once when I was a teenager LOL!)I can’t imagine what this would feel like on a person with sensitive skin. I was really surprised. I usually think of Neutrogena as a good brand. I have other of their products that I like.There are so many other SPF moisturizers without irritating ingredients. I would highly recommend trying something different. Check Beautypedia for a list.

A moisturizer for oily skin!

First of all, I have extremely oily skin. For years, I avoided even using moisturizer because my face would be a greasy mess at the end of the day, whether or not the formula was “oil-free” or formulated for greasy skin. Recently I decided I that needed to start wearing sunscreen, and figured that something especially formulated for facial skin would be best.And this works awesomely!! It doesn’t leave me pale, with a white cast across my face, as physical sunscreens tend to do. It’s virtually odorless. The redness in my cheeks has slightly subsided. My skin is even clearer than it was before (NO breakouts at all when I use this). And finally, it doesn’t leave grease pouring off my face at the end of the day. It’s been almost 24 hours since I last applied it, and the only part of my face that feels a little slick is my nose. My skin feels quite soft, actually!

Just my luck.

THAT IS NOT AT ALL WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE. ^^^ Mine was more of a bronze and silver tube and it was “Neutrogena Visibly Even Daily Moisturizer”. It has SPF 30 with soy ingredients “to help blotchiness and the appearance of dark spots”. I opened my package and was like wtf. I decided to try it because its the middle of summer and I have no SPF products. It was very moisturizing and it smelled nice. I use it everyday after washing my face or getting out of the pool. I’m just glad that I like the product that isn’t being shown. Hoped this helped.

Goes on smoothly and evenly. Not too thick. Moisture and SPF 30!

I like this moisturizer. I have used Oil of Olay SPF 30 moisturizer, Purpose SPF 15, and Eucerin SPF30. This is the best of them all. I can apply my make-up over this without any interaction. In some other moisturizers, I had to wait to put on foundation or the rubbing action would make little “boogers” of make-up and moisturizer all over my face. This seems to dry quickly, it’s not too think or creamy, and it protects my skin. Plus, it’s a good price. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

No moisture at all

I use to use this moisturizer everytime after I washes my face and it never left me moisturized. I always still had dry flaky skin right after using this product.

Dries Out My Skin

I have oily, acne prone skin that can be sensitive to some products. Funny enough, my skin does not like this particular moisturizer (the one for sensitive skin is fine). I did not break out from this product, but my skin doesn’t like it as much as others in this line.PROS:-SPF 35-dries matteCONS:-this dries out my skin. Then after about 2-3 hours, my skin becomes even more oily that I am naturally (to make up for the lack of moisture my skin has)-smell of sunscreen lingers after product dries (a minor con)-not really moisturizingOverall, I would only recommend this for those who have normal skin (for all dry, combo, and oily skin types, sorry, but just stick to a moisturizer and a sunscreen). I did put on another moisturizer and then this one, but I still have the same issues.
