Skin Care Review: Neutrogena healthy defense daily moisturizer

by evie a., nampa, ID usa

Adverse Effects

the untinted formula is a good light weight moisturizer for combination skin.

spf protection proved to be less than effective. tinted formula has an unnatural hue.

I believe in using an SPF of at least 30, so I was delighted to find this one in a tinted formula (thinking it would be a good foundation replacement through the hot summer months.) Unfortunately the "sheer hint of color" the bottle advertises is an absurd orange. This would only appear natural on a oompa-loompa. After switching to the untinted formula, I noticed the reappearence of my freckles, the tell tale sign of sun damage. The only redeaming quality of this product is the light texture, good for sensitive skin. Just don"t be fooled into thinking it wears long enough to provide adequate sun protection. I'm returning to cetaphil SPF30.

you would be wise to forgo this product completely.
