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, and
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 and
simultaneously controlling shine from the  oily parts of the face. Here
are some highlights of the moisturiser:

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

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.

Colour, Texture & Smell

The moisturiser is water based and
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, which turns combination during winter. So 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.

  • Little pricey.
  • Does not come in smaller size (best to my knowledge).

Summary : ❤❤❤❤❤

This is one of the moisturizers that are
specially formulated for combination-oily skins while giving required
amount of moisture to skin without making it oily or greasy. It takes
care of all dry spots without clogging pores. The price is little on
higher side but totally worth it. A must have for combination skin.
