 Neutrogena Face Moisturizer Review

It starts every winter: the itchy, tight feeling. The sandpaper-y texture. Flakes of skin pilling from your face like a sweater that’s seen too many seasons. Despite your best efforts (humidifiers, masks, more water, less wine), maintaining a supple complexion during sub-zero temperatures is always a challenge. But the solution is surprisingly simple, according to a dermatologist we interviewed: Take shorter showers, switch off your heater as much as possible, and apply a thick, heavy moisturizer often. After much trial and error, here are 14 soothing options that truly work.

The gel-cream consistency spreads evenly but feels more like a liquid once applied. Ideal for oily complexions, it absorbs almost instantly so that your skin feels softer, nourished, and not at all greasy. It is also one of the least-expensive moisturizers on this list.


Neutrogena Face Moisturizer is among the top 10 brands introduced by brandsreviews according to users worldwide. Below, you can read Neutrogena Face Moisturizer reviews.

La compré en oferta, pero es muy buena crema, sin duda la compro al precio que sea

I chose this because it was recommended by dermatologists online, and because I have always appreciated the quality of the company’s products. But I’m not sure what went wrong here. It could have been an allergic reaction, I’m not sure. But I only had it applied to half of my face before it started burning and stinging like crazy. It felt like a chemical burn. It was only after several washes and rinses that my skin became to calm down.
I’m giving it a 3 star because it could have just been my fair, sensitive skin. Amazon was great with the immediate refund. I just won’t be trying this again.

I really like neutrogena products such as their clear face bar thing and their cleanser/face mask but....I bought this because it said it was oil free. while it may be oil free (i'm not sure because I'm not an expert), it was very greasy upon application. My face got red in spots and kind of tingled, possibly had a mild reaction to the lotion. it was not unbearable, so I kept using it every morning and night for about a week. When I used this in the morning, by the afternoon my skin produced so much oil, i could wipe my face and the oil would slide down my fingers. When I used it at night before bed, I would wake up and my skin was very soft. I just don't like that it is greasy when I apply the moisture to my face. It has sort of a sunscreen feel when I'm rubbing it into my skin. I just don't think my skin has a glow like I get with other moisturizers. I'll probably keep this moisturizer if I need it in a pinch. But it'll be my last resort. I don't like that it says its oil free and then it feels very oily going onto my skin. I was expecting it to be a cream/serum like consistency that absorbed into skin quickly.

I wish I found this earlier. I've been using the "other brand" (oil of olay) daily moisturizer for years. The Neutrogena moisturizer doesn't leave my face feeling greasy or oily. Had I not been so stubborn, I would have tried this earlier. I prefer the 15 SPF daily moisturizer found on Amazon vs the 30 SPF found locally. That being said, I doubt anyone will be disappointed if they give this a try.

WHY do they 'improve' a great product? Do you know how many times a product I have been using is changed - and they say it is 'improved'?

I used the old formula of this for years and loved it. I have Rosacea, so I can't wear a lot of lotions and suncreens but could wear this lotion. Not anymore . . .

The new formula burns my face and if I wear it anywhere around the eyes, they sting (not so on the older product). It's not a rich as the previous version either.

The scent is fine - but I prefer no scent at all. Doesn't really matter - because I can NOT wear this lotion. Now I have to try and find something similar to the old product - not fun.

I've been using this product for many years, and loved this product. However the most recent purchase causes red rash on my chin with mild warm sensation. I noticed the distributor has changed, but does that mean the formula also changed? In any case, I'll probably not going to buy this again.

 A huge time saver in the morning! Love this!

Love it!! In the morning, I am in a rush. I wake up at 6 and gotta leave the house by 7 to make it to work by 9. Every second counts. I love how this is a pump. I don't have to waste time unscrewing caps, tipping bottles upside down, etc. I also love how this moisturizer just glides on. Half a pump is enough to moisturize my entire face and it's not greasy at all. I can apply makeup to my face immediately.

 My savior!
This is my go-to moisturiser since I have combination-sensitive skin.
The product is fragrance-free and does not cause break-outs.
It does sting a bit and my eyes water for a minute when I apply it..but I don't feel it later.
My skin feels so relaxed and calm after using this.

 Great moisturiser for acne prone skin.
This cream is wonderful for acne prone, sensitive skin. Some oil free moisturisers leave the skin feeling rubbery but this goes on easily and works well and is obviously not greasy. The cream is also in a decent size bottle. Don't get me wrong, it's not huge but it certainly lasts a lot longer than some other products I've used.

 Bog standard mosturizer
Pretty standard, love the fact that it has no fragrance. Slightly tacky on touch and doesn't dry all that mat to be honest. I put this on my cheeks before applying tretinoin so this is the only time l use it. Not bad pretty standard stuff.

  • Alice Piper

 Good balance
I have the type of skin which is fine in some areas and dry in others , so for me I needed a moisteriser that would help the dry bits and not clog the okay parts. Most moisturisers caused me breakouts. So far this one has been good,
It is light on the skin and feels well absorbed yet still hydrated. For the price it is also a good steal! Fingers crossed no breakouts occur
