I've used this product for 16 years. I just purchased a new bottle and immediately noticed the smell. Not good. Also, it burned when I put it my face. I only used it for a few days but will not buy it again.

I recently purchased Neutrogena Oil-Free with sunscreen SPF 15 (I have used the product in the past and loved how light it felt on my skin). This time I put the product on and immediately felt my eyes start tearing up! By the end of the day my face felt hot, dry and itchy. I tried the product one more day and it was even worse! Today, I didn't use the product and my face is still itchy, tight feeling and feeling flushed! What did Neutrogena do to the formula!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0Â by nygirl Allergic to new formula :s
I've been using this product for at least 5 years
(currently 29 years old). A few days ago, I purchased a new bottle because my old one ran out of lotion. Every bottle lasts an eternity for me, so oh surprise, surprise...when I applied the new one on my face, it started to burn immediately. At first, I thought there was something wrong with my skin -maybe it was just over dry that day, but as day passed by, the burning sensation still remains. Please help. I really don't want to switch to a new brand. I usually love Neutrogena products.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by MPS0215 Bring back old formula!
I have been using Neutrogena oil free facial moisturizer SPF 15 twice a day for 25 years. It has been my one constant in my cleansing routine. Two weeks ago I ran out so bought it as usual on my next shopping trip to the store. When I opened the bottled and applied to my freshly washed face I immediately smelled a "chemical" odor. I then began to feel a burning sensation all over my face but mostly on my eyelids. I couldn't believe it. I saved the box and bottle thinking it was defective and I was going to contact Neutrogena to notify them. But, it sat on my bathroom counter. I ran back to the store and bought another bottle. It again smelled like chemicals and burned my face. I'm very upset. I loved the old formula and won't use this product again. Help Neutrogena!!

I actually feel quite lucky because I just ran into the new formula yesterday, and others on this site ran into it over two years ago. Now I'm going to go back and look for the old formula (not broad spectrum) to see if it's available. The new formula (broad spectrum) has a sickly sweet fragrance, even though this page claims that it is fragrance-free, and it burns when applied. Not good. It really makes me angry that Neutrogena changed the formula without changing the packaging in an obvious way. I didn't even notice that the little green box that used to say SPF 15 now says Broad Spectrum SPF 15 until I read it in one of these reviews. I had been using the old formula daily for over a decade and I'll have to go looking for a new moisturizer if I can't find the old formula.

I've had horrible breakouts on my face after using this product. My skin gets rough and bumpy, peels and then turns red. I've used it on and off to make sure it was the factor and indeed once I stopped using it for a while, my skin started clearing up - although it took at least a week to do so.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by Gabber10 New formula = burning face
I've been using the oil-free moisture for a few years and loved it. My old bottle ran out a few days ago, and I am extremely upset because the formula is not the same! Immediately I noticed a fragrance that I'd never smelled before (which would be tolerable), but it's also burning my face. I, unfortunately, will not be able to keep using this product.

I opened a new bottle and thought it might be old since there was a definite unpleasant smell. However, after reading the other reviews, I realize that you have changed the ingredients. I use only fragrance free products and I am very disappointed in this new oil free moisture lotion that is certainly not fragrance free.
