Question About Neutrogena Cleanser

4 posts in this topic

Ive just started using the neutrogena extra gentle cleanser and it does what it says (moisturises as you cleanse) and i was wondering if i would still have to use a moisturiser afterwards? i mean, if my skins not dry and not oily, why use a moisturiser? if i should use a moisturiser, can anyone recommend one to go with this cleanser? (im 16, male and in australia with sensitive fair skin) thanks

Personally I think it's OK not to use a face moisturizer. It's one less variable in my mind. I've tried using them a number of times but have always had bad results (i.e. skin issues). I have found that if I use gentle, non-drying, non-irritating products that I don't need a moisturizer. My skin is extremely sensitive and tends to be a bit oily, which also influences my decision. My opinion, if you don't need a moisturizer than don't use.

Regarding those cleansers, I wouldn't use either. My skin is too sensitive to handle the sulfate / alcohols and I seem to recollect castor oil can be a pore clogger. Good luck.
