Review: Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture Moisturizer

My skin type is combination/normal and am EXTREMELY acne prone. The center of my forehead, cheeks and chin can become oily (though, not so much), the outer parts of my forehead and upper lip are dry. My nose and jaw area are normal. Complicated much?!!

Neutrogena Combination Skin Moisture Oil Free Moisturizer can be found at any drug store you can imagine (although the price may vary between $9-$14 for 4 fl oz). It claims to moisturize dry areas and controls shine in oily areas. It also claims to be hydrating without clogging pores.


The packaging is very attractive and also functional. I love that there's a pump- said pump makes it easier to distribute and get a consistent amount of product. About the product, it's liquidy, but not at all


Within the first few weeks of use, I felt like the initial weight of the moisturizer was too heavy. (Maybe it's because I HATE the feel of moisturizers/lotions…) I hated the way it feels when it's settling into my skin. But, admittedly, once the moisturizer is set it moisturizes so well and makes my skin feel so baby soft. I also love that it doesn't make me break out and doesn't clog my pores! Also, after months of use, I've gotten used to that "heavy" lotion feel. (Others who've used the Neutrogena find that the moisturizer is "extremely light-weight." Lol. I think I might've been spoiled by Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel's light-weight, barely there feel. Because DDMG feels like water!)


I've used this moisturizer for a couple of months and I really like it so far! Ultimately, I think this may have replaced Clinique DDMG as my HG. On the flip side, Cristhian uses this moisturizer as well, but he doesn't like it. He has normal skin and feels like it clogs his pores. He prefers the sensitive version over the combination (that I bought)!

Pros:
  • moisturizes dry patches and mattifies oily spots!
  • cheap (under $10 and many coupons available)
Cons:
  • feels like lotion! (but that's totally a me thing...)


Would I repurchase this? Yes, definitely! And I have many, many times!
