Is this moisturizer suppose to burn?

Recommended Posts

I got that Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion with SPF 15 and since i got it like a week ago, it burns like hell when i put it on, but more so on my neck, since my neck is EXTREAMLY flakly and dry, and i'm going to get that Jobba oil but i thought maybe if tried some of my Emo oil that would help but it made it worst.

If its burning like this, should i stop and find something else? cause i think its making my face worst.

NHSFL has AHA in it which is probably why you're feeling the burn (although I found that SPF also causes my face to feel like it's burning).

Try switching to a good hydrating moisturizer without AHA -- I have used Cetaphil for 3 months now and it's the best so far. If you have sensitive skin (like me) your skin may just not tolerate AHA and/or SPF. Be careful with the jojoba too because my skin was doing great besides flakes and then when I incorporated jojoba my face became super-irritated and I am still trying to get it back to normal. You just can't add as many products to your regimen if you have sensitive skin, and if you do you have to take it VERY SLOW.

Good luck!
