Skin Care Review: Neutrogena Advanced Solutions

by , USA

Adverse Effects

Moisturized skin quite well

Highly irritating!

I began using Neutrogena's "Skin Transforming Complex" every other night, as recommended for people with sensitive skin, since it contains both AHA and Retinol. The first couple of times I was pleased with how soft and moist my skin felt in the morning, but after the third use I began having some flakiness. The package said that was normal, so I didn't worry. The real problem came with using sunblock. Since the cream contains AHA (lots of it), it is especially important to use sunblock. However, the cream made my skin so irritated and sensitive that it couldn't tolorate sunblock... of any type! In fact, the results of wearing sunblock were similar to a SEVERE sunburn, which was what I first thought had happened. My skin plealed wildly, was completely dried out, and was so painful that even water of lotion hurt! Neutrogena DID refund my money, but it took several days for my skin to recover.

Definitely not for people with delicate skin!
