About Neutrogena Oil Free Moisture- Combination Skin

Basically Combination skin is considered to be the most troubled skin since it has a combination of oily as well as some dry spots. You can’t slather heavy moisture on your face, because light moisturiser can not take care of the dry spots. Neutrogena formulated an oil free moisturiser specially for combination skin to normalize the combination skin by moisturisng the dry spots. As a result it is simultaneously controlling shine from the  oily parts of the face. Here are some highlights of the moisturiser I got as a result:

  • Lightweight & non greasy formula.
  • Oil Absorbing MICROSPONGE System to control oil.
  • Won’t clog pores.
  • Also allergy tested, fragrance free & Alcohol-free.

Since the price is BDT. 700 for 118 ML, as a result its cheaper. There are also two other versions of this moisturizer which contain SPF15 & SPF 35.

The moisturiser bottle comes in a sturdy white coloured cardboard box with all the important information about the product is printed. After opening the outer box, you find a white plastic bottle with pump fitted on the top to dispense the product. The bottle pump does not have a cover since it comes with “a twist to lock/unlock” mechanism. The bottle has Neutrogena logo and all the other information printed except the ingredient list. The ingredients are printed only on the outer packaging. I really liked the packaging except the fact that it does not come in a smaller pack. Since its pump system, as a result its easy to dispense.

Colour, Texture & Smell

The moisturiser is water based so its really light weight. If you have used the Clean n Clear Oil Free Moisturiser, you can compare it’s consistency to it, but Neutrogena is little thicker in consistency than the Clean n Clear one, so it helps in treating any dry spots while providing the right amount of moisture to it. Since the texture is light weight, it gets absorbed very quickly leaving matte finish behind. It has very mild and non irritating smell even though the company claims it to be fragrance free.

My Skin Type

I have oily, acne prone & sensitive skin, as a result my skin turns combination during winter. Therefore I am left with a mix of oily & dry spots.

My Experience

I generally get this moisturiser during winter, as  for summer Clean  Clear Oil Free Moisturiser is enough for my oily skin. Since winter are really harsh, Clean n Clear just can’t deliver the right amount of moisture to my skin. Neutrogena Oil Free Moisture, is definitely a savior when I really need little heavy moisturisation with clogging my pores. Just one pump of this product is enough to moisturise my face and neck. The moisturiser sinks deep into my skin within few seconds -leaving it in a calmer state. Skin feels moisturised and there is no heavy or stretchy feeling. I do not feel the need to use this moisturiser again until I wash my face at night with a face wash. Mostly I use this moisturiser once in the morning only, since at night I use my night cream.

Even though it has a pump packaging, the bottle is spill proof since the pump has an easy lock mechanism. I wish there was some smaller size of this bottle available to be carried in my handbag while travelling.
I have also used the SPF version of this moisturiser but that kind of broke me out, while this non SPF version never broke me out.


  • Lightweight, non greasy & quick absorbing formula.
  • Moisturises without making a hint of oil on face even after hours.
  • Takes care of dry spots despite of being lightweight.
  • No breakouts. No clogged pores.
  • One bottle gives my 3 months of usage when used once.
  • Perfect moisturiser for oily to combination skin.
