I have sandpaper skin in patches on my face from not using a moisturizer for years. Everything caused pimples for me.. so I stayed away from them all. I have REALLY oily skin, so was uncertain my skin type would even tolerate a moisturizer. After having 2 friends recommend it, and reading the great reviews on here, I gave it a try and am SO glad I did. My skin is thanking me..

Pros:
  • Doesn't cause breakouts
  • Doesn't add shine
  • Moisturizes lightly, not a thick formula
  • A little goes a long way
Cons:
  • Doesn't control shine too well, but doesn't add to it either.

“My Holy grail.”
By on

I was shocked that a neutrogena moisturizer was the one that I would buy again and again and keep using. The thing I love about this moisturizer is that it is 100% noncomedogenic, according to acne.org. I do not think that this should be overlooked! It glides on easily and your skin drinks this stuff up. It does not leave an oily residue whatsoever. It's a thin, liquidy, creamy, moisturizer. It looks great under make-up too. However, it may not be enough moisture if you are on harsh acne treatments and may need something more emollient but for the average combo/oily skin person, this moisturizer is perfect!

Pros

  • glides on easily
  • no greasy residue
  • noncomedogenic!

Cons

  • may not be enough for drier skintypes
  • for a few months
  • $ 10
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

“It's ok...”

I think this is an alright moisturiser. I mean, it shouldn't be overlooked that it is completely non-comedogenic and all the ingredients are safe. But to be honest, it doesn't moisturise THAT well... I feel like there are better ones on the market...

Pros

  • Non-comedogenic
  • Fairly cheap
  • Absorbs quickly

Cons

  • Doesn't moisturise THAT well
  • for about a month
  • $ 6
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

“Doesn't moisturize”
By on

The Regimen was drying out my skin something awful, and I reacted badly to Dan's moisturizer as well as Cetaphil, so went on hunt for other options. This was on Acne.org's list of recommended alternative moisturizers, so I figured, why not give it a shot. The stuff just did not moisturize at ALL. Even after applying a more than liberal amount (8 pumps), and making sure to rub it in properly, my skin still felt as tight as it did after cleansing / BP, as if I hadn't even applied moisturizer to begin with. I have a feeling it never really absorbed, seeing as how I would wake up in the mornings with extremely dry, flaky skin... I assumed the product just rubbed off onto my pillow. I was very disappointed, as this was one of the few moisturizers that did not burn my skin at all when applied after BP treatment.

Pros

  • Doesn't burn my skin at all

Cons

  • Doesn't absorb, hence doesn't really moisturize
  • Tiny bottle, tiny pump
  • for about a week
  • $ 13
  • I do not recommend using this product/treatment.

I have have very sensitive combination skin and have found the best way to fight my acne is to keep it moisturized(I use 2X a day). I have tried everything from mono and doxycyline to the regimen. Bottom line when my skin isn't irritated it does not over produce oil to compensate, no miracle cure, but the product reduced acne and improved overall skin complexion.

Pros

  • non comedogenic
  • not irritating
  • evens skin tone, lessens oily t zone while controlling flakey dry regions
  • Much better than cetaphil which left skin greasy

Cons

  • expensive
  • moderately severe
  • for a few weeks
  • $ 13
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

I like it, but only use it when needed. It's an expensive moisturizer and you can go through it quickly if you are using it 2x/day.

Pros

  • Good moisturizer
  • Won't cause you to break out

Cons

  • Expensive for amount
  • Can be a little greasy
  • moderately severe
  • for more than a year
  • $ 20
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

It works. Some moisturizers irritate my skin and make acne worst. This works well and consistently so at such a great price. I use it daily with cetaphil foaming wash and bp gel. i have been using it for over a year. I noticed an improvement in shine or oil balance in about a week and since then it has been great.

Pros

  • Matte effect (kind of)
  • Not greasy

Cons

[not submitted]
  • moderate
  • for more than a year
  • $ 12
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

  • absorbs well and relatively quick
  • leaves no thick, tacky feeling like many moisturizers
  • does not sting or irritate
  • does not cause breakouts for me

Cons

  • Cost
  • Small bottle/finishes faster than I want
  • would like it to leave more matte finish and less shine after it absorbs
  • light
  • for more than a year
  • $ 15
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.
