try less moisturizer next time and see if that helps.

I think the instructions say use 2 pumps on that Neutrogena healthy skin.

residue u say? does ur skin feel dry though? if it does then just apply more... i use about 10-15 pumps of my eucerin skin renewal and i get no residue nor am i experiencing tautness of the skin or flakiness whatsoever

so yea, maybe u should try more

hmmm, Healthy SKin is a pretty thick lotion, imo, maybe it's just not absorbing.

You should wait 5-15 mins. after applying the bp to apply the lotion.

If it's still leaving residue, maybe try another, less-thick lotion.

Are you using neutogena on-the-spot BP? I am using that and it is clumbing up too when I moisterize. Just wipe the excess of. I usually wait about a min or so after for it to dry and it will come off pretty easy.

I'm surprised to see all the "clumping up" comments. I've used Neutrogena on-the-spot for nearly a year now, and have never had a clumping up issue. Are you all waiting the appropriate time after applying the bp, before applying the moisturizer? Are you smoothing it on gently? Maybe you are rubbing it around too hard. I just sortof pat on the moisturizer and gently spread about, I don't rub, and not in circular motions either.

I've never had a clumping up problem, either with humid weather or dry, or whatever.

How long does it take for you to apply the Bp? For me, it dries really quickly. So it gets very sticky if I dont rub it around before it dries. But I barely touch my skin though. Kinda let it glides over it but I have to do it fast though. It usually clumbs up to the spot where I applied alot of Bp to.

no...what are u doing steven?

if u want the results that are expected follow the regimen precisely ...

ok...u wash ur face gently w/ a gentle cleanser....then u WAIT 15 mins!

after that u apply ur bp...now depending on how long ur on the regimen u apply the adequate amount ....u rub it in GENTLY ( kinda like ur gently massaging it in)till ur skin has absorbed the gel...this proces takes about 2-3 MINUTES

after this , u WAIT for 15 minutes to go by ... and then u moisturize ... use as much as ur skin needs in order for it to feel normal...GENTLY rub it on.... lightly touching ur face

if u still see "Residue" then change ur moisturizer and find some eucerin skin renewal cuz this baby works great

stick w/ the regimen, dude...and stop doing "STEVEN'S REGIMEN"

ok Steven, have you considered maybe a different cleanser? Some people feel like Cetaphil doesn't "clean" as well as other cleansers.

Maybe consider another.

I use Dan's gel, it leaves white streaks and patches all over my face, and results in a big mess when I put on Neutrogena moisturizer. Often I use a very small amount of BP during the day, for that reason.

Eucerin is more watery than the Neutrogena stuff. Isn't it getting discontinued? I never liked it because of the Alpha Hydroxy stuff in there, it irritated my skin and made it really oily. Neutrogena is really pure and doesn't irritate.
