Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by Kam31400 With Helioplex
I used this four days ago and my face became red, blotchy and very itchy. I have used Neutrogena before but this was the first time with helioplex and unfortunately I had purchased two. My face was on fire for the first two days and now it is still very itchy and scaly. Horrifying. Very disappointed and annoyed. I hope this clears up soon.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by Balo My face swelled up to double the size...
I bought this because I love Neutrogena products and wanted the strong SPF. I used this product two days in a row - my face swelled up to the point of making me unrecognizable - my eyes could barely open, my face had red rashy blotches as well as being dry and tight. After 3 days of antihistamines, the swelling went down and the rash made way for dry flaky skin. Two weeks later, my face is still dry and itchy. I was on a tropical vacation that was ruined due to this product - be sure you try it in small are first.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by Wilhe Really dry, itchy skin after week of use
I have been surprised by my skins reaction to this product. My face looks like every ounce of moisture has been pulled from it. Also it itches. I know it works for some, just wish it had worked for me.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by DarkSpots Dark Spots Worsen
I have been using this moisturizer for a long time now and I never wanted to admitted because neutrogena is usually a great brand to use for my face, but the dark spots I have in my face from acne/sun burn get worse every time I apply it. They get darker and my skin feels oily. I think it I would recommend this for very dry skin or mix skin during the winter, and for people who do not have problems with acne, blackheads, and dark spots. I got more blackheads due to this moisturizer, and it also worsen my acne dark spots.
I started using other brands for moisturizer with sunscreen, and found that they are working better for me, so this product did cause bad results on my face.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by creative_paws Caused cystic pimples
I'm 40 and want to protect my face from the sun. I have used other products in the past with SPF 30-50 without issue. I tried this Neutrogena product since the brand is most noted for skin care. Within about a week to two weeks, this product caused 3 of the largest and deepest pimples I have ever had in my life that are taking weeks to go away (cystic-type). The only thing I changed in my skin regiment was this moisturizer (I wash my face 2x day and never sleep in my makeup).

I have used the other Healthy Defense daily moisturizer and when I bought this one, I had a terrible allergic reaction! The active ingredients are completely different than the other one. It should be labeled differently with a warning!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by nothappy This one's a NO
I purchased this product in hopes for an inexpensive facial moisturizer with SPF, and Neutrogena has always been a dependable, safe bet for me, but this time I was sorely let down. This product made my face break out into little bumps all over and left it feeling greasy. It was a horrible experience.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0Â by rissachan Caused an allergic reaction
My skin is not exactly what I call sensitive, nor do I have bad allergies, but I used this for one week and my skin became puffy and red and bumpy. I stopped using it, skipped make up for a few days and had to use hydrocortizone multiple times a day to get rid of the inflammation. That phase is over with, but now my skin is flaky and rough and itchy. I've never had something like this happen before.
