”Love this gel! It smells great, goes on without leaving any film/residue, and feels so refreshing. This is perfect for the cold weather, when my skin gets dry and chapped easily–I just put this on after a shower and after washing my face and it lasts for the entire day. I will definitely be picking this up again once this jar runs out.”
–Lindsay M. (from Amazon.com)

Lovely, light cream
December 27, 2014
”I love this cream and plan on getting more this coming summer…I love the clean, refreshing feel of it and like I said, I’m buying more this summer. I have fair, combo skin that is now aging so it’s always a problem finding a nice cream that is not greasy. This cream is wonderful–it doesn’t feel greasy at all and absorbs right in. I feared it might not go on very well because of it being a ‘water gel’ but it is very, very smooth and goes on great.”
–Amy Goebel Padgett “AGP” (from Amazon.com)

Good ol' product to reminisce with

This is perfect for those with combination to oily skin as it is water-based. I love it because it is not only moisturizing - it is also hydrating. I love the texture, the mild scent, the consistency, and how it is easily absorbed by the skin since it is in a light gel form. Perfect during daytime but probably not enough for night use. I have tried the L'Oreal version of this (forgive me, I cannot remember what it's named) and it was meh compared to this. No breakouts, no allergic reaction from me at all. I have since then started using natural products with a few K but I can never forget how much I enjoyed this product. And now that I was reminded of it, I might have to get another jar of it. Oh and before I forget, this might not be enough for those with dry-very dry skin.

Just perfect!

I have combination skin that tends to get really dry during colder months. But in warmer months, I struggle to find a really good moisturizer that will keep my skin hydrated enough but won't feel greasy. I saw this product on sale at the drugstore and decided to test it on the back of my hand. I didn't like it at first as it felt sticky. But after a few seconds, the spot where I tried it felt soooooo smooth I couldn't even stop running my fingers through it. That, and the fresh clean smell really got me sold. And soon as I used the product on my face that night, oh gosh! The gel felt cold on my face but I really felt fresh and pampered after applying it! Two weeks into using it, I really look forward to doing my skin care coz of this. And now I can say, I found the perfect moisturizer for me.. :)

Oh my oh my, where has this baby been all my life? For the longest time, I thought I would never find a moisturizer that would sit well with my oily, acne-prone, perpetually red and sensitive skin. But Neutrogena's gel-based formula was apparently all that I needed! It smells like fresh laundry actually, but when you get past that, the texture is superbly smooth on the skin and dries in like, 10-15 seconds flat. And when I say dry, I MEAN DRY - there's no sticky residue, there's not weird gleam or shine. It's absorbed just like that. Plus, you won't be able to stop touching your face (though you must resist it!) because the gel leaves you with this silky soft texture <3 It didn't make me break out either! THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER GUYS. Please try it out!

Light and super moisturizing

I use this as moisturizer before makeup and its super light weight and hydrating at the same time. It also dries fast which makes it even better to wear before makeup. Its also water base so its not sticky at all. I've tried other moisturizers but i always find myself coming back to this. Would totally recommend!

Super love it!

I have an oily skin and I have to blot every 2-3hours throughout the day but when I started using this I can see the improvement of my skin that I don't need to blot at all! Sounds unbelievable, I know! Even me can't believe that it works like magic. I've been using this for a month now and falling even more inlove with this product. My holygrail moisturizer! <3 it keeps my skin soft and hydrated all day and gives my skin a beautiful glow :)!

Moist and fragrant

There are some days that your face looks dry, like you need to drink a lot more water, and sleep earlier. For those days, use this Neutrogena Moisturizer. It's light weight, yet has great moisturization properties. Smells great too! No problems wearing it in our humid weather because it's absorbed by facial skin very well.

The best!

This is probably one of the best moisturizers that I've tried. I love it's lightweight formulation because it's perfect for the country's humid weather. This is totally wearable during summer. And surprisingly it does a good job in keeping my skin hydrated during the cold months. This moisturizer is pure love!

One of the best moisturizer for oily skin!

I definitely love this moisturizer! Besides the fact that it keeps my skin soft and well-hydrated, I simply adore the gel-like consistency for it helps my skin absorb it instantly without leaving a greasy oily finish! And the cooling effect was just divine! it's super soothing and refreshing to the skin! Will definitely repurchase!

perfect for oily to combo skin

I bought this because of Judy from Itsjudystime on you tube and I absolutely adore it. I love the jelly texture of it, It has a slight clean smell that is not offensive. It absorbs easily to the skin without the greasy feeling. I usually stick in the ref during the summer for an extra cooling effect. Will repurchase!

Great for oily skin

The best moisturizer I have ever tried, hands down. This product made my face soft, supple, and smooth, without it being oily or greasy. It’s super lightweight and absorbs so quickly into the skin. It’s a little expensive but it’ll last you a few months, so it’s worth it. Merits a repurchase.

Soft Skin!

Surprised to see visible results within a week of regular usage. It is not oily at all and gets fully absorbed in the skin, For those with dry skin might want to top it off with another moisturizer if you feel the skin is still dry (optional). I was wary of the claims made about this product. But I am glad I bought this. It has exceeded my expectations.

Love this product

At first I was concerned about it being a gel and that it might be sticky or make my skin feel dry. On the contrary I found it to be light and hydrating. My forehead was so dry and flaky an I could see it every time I put makeup on. After the first use I could tell the difference. It is a bit more expensive then other drug store brands and I wish it had a version with sun screen, but i will definitely buy more. It does have a slight fragrance to it but it doesn't bother me.

It's Okay

It worked wonder on my oily skin during the first two weeks of daily use. Imagine, I'm practically grease-free during our hot, humid summer. It also didn't break me out. Sadly, the magic died after two weeks. It started to lose efficacy- I became oily again and started breaking out. After I finished the tub, I didn't try to repurchase this. Maybe it would have helped prolonging its effects if I kept it in the fridge instead of my cabinet.

It has a wonderful cooling sensation and soft delicate texture, and smells really pleasant.. but it doesn't moisturise all that much (to me). It didn't improve my dry patches.
