NOT for oily skin, greasy and caused breakout

By Cam

from Baltimore, MD

Pros

  • Effective Sun Protection

Cons

  • Doesn't Absorb Well
  • Too Greasy Or Heavy

Best Uses

    Comments about Neutrogena Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 50 with Helioplex:

    Been using this for about a week, I usually use Cerave 30 SPF daily moisturizer but I wanted to try something with more SPF for the summertime. The first time I used this my face was so greasy!!!! It would not absorb and my face felt so gross. I decided to try it for at least a week and give it a real chance, but nothing would help the greasy look to my already oily skin. Then, even though I got the sensitive skin version, my face broke out really badly. I'm on medications for acne so my skin is usually very clear, but after a few days I got several large, painful zits on my chin. I didn't change anything else in my skincare routine, so I'm pretty sure this is the reason. I'm going to give this away and go back to my Cerave moisturizer. I think this would work for someone with very dry, not oily or acne prone skin.

      I don't know how many years I've been using this or how many tubes I've bought, but this is my daily moisturizer regardless of weather or season. For the price you can't find a better moisturizer with a higher SPF. Highly recommended.
