Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture, Combination Skin Reviews
My face has always been super oily, after going on the regimen, which dries out my skin & left it flaking off and make up doesn't really stay on well. But this has been the first product that doesn't leave me uncomfortably oily after application, it absorbs into the skin pretty well and fast, doesn't clump my make up and does its job at moisturizing. I'll see if it breaks me out, but so far so good.
Makes face MORE oily
This moisturizer is supposed to make your face less oily, but I put it on in the morning on a completely dry face (make sure your face is dry when applying or it will be hard to rub in), and within 2 hours my face was far more oily than it would ever be without wearing anything on my face. Definitely would not recommend.
So far so good
This is a great moisturizer for acne prone skin. I never applied any creams before because I felt like it just makes my combination skin more oily and prone to breakouts, But after trying this, it seems to work. No breakouts so far and does feel very light weight and it is cheap! However, I do think it's suitable for only combination to oily skin as it doesn't moisturize the skin too much, which is perfect for me, but not for everyone.
Helped with my acne
I write this specifically for acne prone skin. I've been applying benzoyl peroxide for the past one year and I never moisturized because my skin is already oily. But benzoyl peroxide (BP) dried my skin out badly. I had bought this moisturizer ages ago when I saw it displayed on a shelf in a store and the SA told me it wouldnt clog pores. Even with the BP, I used to get tiny bumps and pimples. But after I started using this my face is free of pimples and bumps and this hasn't happened in years! I guess my skin was lacking moisture so it was overcompensating for it by producing more sebum which in turn led to clogged pores. For anyone who is going through the same problem as me: I apply a tiny amount of BP after cleansing my face. I wait for 5 minutes before I apply this moisturizer. Then I might or might not wear makeup on top. Hope this helps!
This product burns my skin. Not for sensitive skin, don't think their sensitive skin one worked either! May be the stearyl alcohol, and PEG100 stearate in it..
Great Daytime Moisturizer
I have used this one for years and I love it. It is definitely the most lightweight of the Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizers. It absorbs the fastest, gives your skin a nice matte look/feel and is not greasy! Great for wearing under make-up or alone if you aren't going to be in direct sunlight for long. Best in the summer or for people with oily/combo skin because it is very LIGHT and won't provide enough moisture if you have dry skin.
I chose Neutrogena , thinking that it would end up my search for a good moisturizer, but what i am experiencing is T-zone still shining, there is oil on the other parts of face as well. Face go all oily after few minutes of application. I chose this as my T- zone is oil prone.. Product not effective for me. can i exchange this oil-free moisture combination skin with other Neutrogena product? I will not be using this product of Neutrogena anymore .. Please help..
glyceral stearate is SE not NSE
I did like this moisturizer - have used it on and off for years - watch out people - the Glyceral Stearate is SE; note from Johnson and Johnson and myself- "Dear Mrs XXXXXXXX Thank you for contacting the Consumer Care Centre regarding NEUTROGENA* Oil-Free Moisture for Combination Skin. The glyceryl stearate in NEUTROGENA* Oil-Free Moisture for Combination Skin is self-emulsifying. Once again, thank you for taking the time to contact us. Should you wish to discuss this matter, please do not hesitate to contact our Consumer Care Centre during Sydney business hours on 1800 029 979. Yours sincerely JOHNSON & JOHNSON PACIFIC " MY EMAIL " Isnt glyceral stearate SE comedogenic? How is this lowered to be non comedogenic" THIER EMAIL "Our Technical Team as advised the following answer to your question- A product's comedogenicity is dependent on the formula as a whole and not on an individual ingredient. The concentration of the ingredient and how it is formulated is very important in ensuring the final product will not clog pores. An independent dermatologist conducted a clinical comedogenicity study on the product and found the product to be non-comedogenic." Go figure - people with acne are doomed - who knows what to do - sometimes I feel like using nothing - nothing at all!
I dont recommend it. I ran out of my previous moisturizer ( which is my mums sheseido white lucent with spf, but its too expensive) so I opted for this one instead. My face have never been so oily before after 4 hours of application. I was off accutane for 3 months now. This moisturizer didnt seem too help. Makes my face even more oily.
I have extremely oily skin especially in my t zone on my nose and cheeks, which is also where the shine is. I decided to give this product a try and haven't seen no improvement regarding controlling the shine and oil.
I have sensitive oily skin, and I got this moisturizer to try to keep my face moisturized but get rid of some of the oil. Unfortunately, my face was moisturized at first, but later i began to form dry patches on my forehead and my cheeks. This usually happens from using products that are too strong, but the only other thing I am using is Cetaphil face wash, which is very gentle. I guess this is just too drying for my skin
The only thing that doesnt break me out
I've used this for a year, and have stopped using it and tried heavier moisturisers cause i found this wasnt as effective as moisturising, however i always find myself coming back. This is a very WEAK moisturiser. If your on antibiotics try something stronger. This does moisturiser and does control oil, and its the only thing that does not clog my pores.
I bought this product because I saw one of my basketball team members use it. I tried it and it felt alright. I have t-zone acne mainly, and the occasional black head on my cheeks. Whenever I wash my face its left dry so I needed a moisturizer. The Neutrogena oil free combination skin moisturizer is great in moisturing your face. However at first when I put it on my face doesn't feel oily or anything, but later on in the day my face starts to look shiney on my forehead and nose. This moisturizer is great for moisture but the oil free part does not keep your oil at bay.
I'll never use another moisturiser again
This is a humectant moisturiser, the best for acne-prone skin. It's super light, quickly absorbed and CHEAP!
So Much for "Oil-Control"
I bought this moisturizer for oil control and what not but basically ended up with sort-of nourished skin and a still shiny t-zone. I have combo skin and I'm not obscenely oily but this moisturizer didn't really do anything and so it kind of just sat around unused. Try CeraVe, their moisturizing cream is VERY rich but it has NEVER left me feeling greasy, if anything, I felt matte afterwards.
Good Moisturizer, Not Greasy or Heavy
I've used this moisturizer on and off for more than 10 years. I'm not religious with moisturizing because I don't like the feel of creams on my face, and I have had pretty inflamed acne over the years. What I like about this moisturizer is that it doesn't feel like a greasy cream on my face, and after some minutes, my face doesn't feel weighed down by product. I don't think it's ever contributed to active acne, or to causing new acne. This is very different from their other moisturizer with the SPF - I did not like that one at all. What I don't like about the oil-free for combo skin is that in the first couple hours, if my face sweats, I can feel it bead out of my pores and sit on top of the moisturizer layer. Nothing a light dabbing with paper towel or other absorbent tissue can't fix, though.
Seemed amazing at first but made me break out
Unfortunately i was convinced this moisturizer was going to help me since i have combination skin. It ended up helping my oily spots but made me breakout where i get dry skin and didn't moisturize enough in the dry areas. Seems like a great moisturizer for oily skin but not for dry skin
Oil-Free Moisture, Combination Skin Review
Honestly, barely moisturizes at all.. I guess it's just not for my skin type.
take away that shine but broke me out !
did a few test with that one still had it from my accutane period, i tried away on a few places on my face, on all places i broke out in small red pimples the FPS version of this doesnt broke me out but look greasy.
PERFECT moisturizer for oily skin!!
This is the best moisturizer i have ever come across and it is perfect! Just perfect for me!! It doesnt feel greasy at all and doesnt have a shine on my face. Also, my skin absorbs the moisture fast and looks radiant!! I love this product and would definitely recommend it you
I definitely recommend this! I bought it when I couldn't find the sensitive skin moisturizer (also from neutrogena) and I was pleasantly surprised! It doesn't dry me out at all despite it being oil controlling.
Works but stings
Inexpensive and easy to find Works Stings Watery eyes A bit greasy Reasonable price and non-comodogenic, but tends to sting and make my eyes water. Also a bit greasy through the day.
My Holy grail.
glides on easily no greasy residue noncomedogenic! may not be enough for drier skintypes 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!
Non-comedogenic Fairly cheap Absorbs quickly Doesn't moisturise THAT well 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...
Doesn't burn my skin at all Doesn't absorb, hence doesn't really moisturize Tiny bottle, tiny pump 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.
