Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by jg9000 Burns/irritates the skin-nightmare
This product is a nightmare if you either (1) use any retinoid, or (2) are a male who shaves his face.
I switched to this product from Neutrogena's Healthy Defense product line (which was a dream) because stores in my area have stopped stocking it, and every time I use this new one I feel a painful burning sensation on my cheeks, beard area, and neck. It also makes my beard/neck area bright red for about 10-15 minutes. I shave in the shower to avoid irritation; I apply this moisturizer within three minutes of getting out of the shower in the morning (as recommended by the American Academy of Dermatologists and my own dermatologist); nothing seems to keep it from causing mayhem on my skin.
It may be a reaction with Retin-A Micro (my non-professional thought), but seeing as Retin-A Micro used to be manufactured by OrthoNeutrogena and *suggested* Neutrogena moisturizers in conjunction, these products should be compatible.
All that said, it does a fair job at keeping the skin from being dry and does last all day (if you can stand the pain from initially putting it on). I never had these problems with Healthy Defense.

i have sensitive skin and have a lot of trouble finding the right products for it. this moisturizer burns and is very greasy. it may also be causing breakouts. if you have seriously sensitive skin definitely avoid. plus it has mad parabens. gross.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Jeni My skin is getting better
I am 35 and have developed a really sensitive skin in my early 30's. One is being too oily it easily gets dirt causing pimple breakouts and being in a tropical country does not help at all. Only this moisturizer serves me the purpose after my dermatologist recommended that i use it. I am so happy with the results. Too bad i could not find it in any local store selling Neutrogena products.

This product burned my skin after using twice. I am appalled that it is recommended for sensitive skin. I am seeing a dermatologist today as my face is still burning even after removing the moisturizer from my skin.

I have combination skin, and get really dry and red around the apples of my cheeks. This lotion did a good job at helping with the dryness and softened those rough patches. BUT, it burned as I was putting it on and also for a while after.
Not sure why it would burn if it's meant for sensitive skin. ALSO, my face looked oily/shiny after I put it on, which is what I want to avoid because I can get really oily sometimes.
Im going to try it a little longer in hopes that my skin just needs to adjust to it?

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by vikran 2014 gave me a rash and breakouts
So I used this product for 6 days and ended up with a really bad rash and breakouts. My rash is still there and its been over two weeks. I'm so disappointed in this product, not what I had expected. Don't even bother trying this out, its not worth it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by Mad and in pain My eyes are swollen shut and my face has hives!
I have used this product 1 time and it swelled up my face so bad that I had to seek emergency treatment. I have painful and itchy raised hives all over my face and can no longer see out of my left eye due to swelling. This product is horrible and I would discourage people from using any of their products.

I have used a lot of moisturizers, but had never had one burn like this one. Interestingly, when I searched for "neutrogena moisturizer burns" I came upon this site and found another person who is having the same problem. I am wondering what is in this product that would cause my skin to burn as if sunburned when I apply it and cause my skin to turn red in places.
