Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by Sadnow You took a good thing and made it bad
Why did you have to change a good thing? This new formula is horrible, it not only leaves my skin feeling sticky it stings. I used the old formula for years and never had a problem. I have read some of the reviews and pretty much the new formula is not liked. I do not like the smell either. Bring back the old formula. I am going to have to find a different product now.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by lbw88 New formula irritates my skin!
I have used the oil-free moisture with sunscreen for years and was surprised when I used the latest version. It caused irritation around my eyes which I have never had before. I then noticed that the active ingredients had changed. I am hoping that there is another moisturizer with sunscreen out there that will work for my sensitive skin!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by miamidreamz love the new formula
I have been using this product for many years, and noticed that a new bottle I bought suddenly had a very light, pleasant fragrance. I'm super scent-sensitive, and I only notice the scent right when I apply it and it goes away after a few minutes. I really like the new smell-it's very light and fresh.
I can't really tell if the thickness changed or not, it seems pretty much the same to me. It doesn't cause my face to be red, either.
I came on this Neutrogena site to explore whether this product was broad spectrum or not. I thought it wasn't, so I bought the Neutrogena oil free broad spectrum 35 spf to try, but it was too thick for me.
It turns out that my local chain drug store has a mix of the old formulation and the new formulation, which led to my confusion. The old one doesn't say anything about being broad spectrum on the packaging. The new packaging states broad spectrum.
I'll definitely keep using this, and will seek out the new formula.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by What05 Bring back the original formula!!!!
I can no longer use this product. Since they have added Avobenzone to the formula, my face burns badly when I use it. It also has a very strong sunscreen smell. I once loved this product because it did NOT have a strong smell. Why did Neutrogena not advertise that they were changing the formula? Looks like I'm in the market for a new brand of moisturizer. Farewell, Neutrogena. You really screwed up this time. Can I get my money back for the new bottle I just purchased that I do not intend to use???

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by AndiPandi Now Has Better SPF Protection!
Neutrogena finally reformulated the active sunscreens in this, to include Avobenzone, so it now provides both UVA and UVB protection, which it did not before. Some people might not be happy with the formula change, but there is no point in using an SPF product that does not provide both UVA/UVB protection. This also smells so good, like watermelon! I find it sinks in/absorbs quickly, but will leave behind that sunscreen sheen, that all SPF's seem to. I will re-buy!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by Kim in MD Can't use it anymore
I have used this product for years - it is the ONLY thing I found that I could use twice daily with no problem at all. I recently bought a new bottle. It made my face red and made it burn. It says it is fragrance free, but my bottle certainly has a fragrance! I thought I purchased the wrong thing. Double checked and bought a 2nd bottle. Same result. I'm so sad - it must have changed. I have to find something new - what's up Neutrogena??

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by Noriega12 Long Time Product User - No longer
I have used this bottle of what used to be "heaven" on my face. I recently ran out and bought a new bottle. After a couple times of usage, I thought the product was expired because it made my skin burn, turn red, and super irritated when in the sun. I am sad after reading reviews Iv learned this product has changed. I am also upset at this company for not advertising this change. It is unfair. One more customer lost. What a shame.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by hiker New product smells horrible
I agree with the other reviewers. The new product (broad spectrum SPF 15) smells horrible. I had used the old version since 1998 and LOVED IT! Why did you have to change it now??? Does the old formula still exist? I am very, very disappointed that this new formula has such a nasty odor. I will no longer buy it.
