I was hoping to find myself a new CC Cream, but this one did not make the cut, even after spending an hour in the aisle at Target reading reviews before making my purchase. I used this product twice, once on a moisturized and primed face and once on a freshly washed face to see if there would be a difference, and both times, the product pilled / balled up on my face. It was oily and weird. Also, it was way too orange for my pale complexion, even though I bought the "Fair" option. I was so disappointed. I wanted to love it, but it sure didn't love me. Oh, well. I can cross this one off my list of CC/BB Creams To Try.

On a whim while shopping, I came across this product, Not only was it on clearance for $2.87, I had a $2 off any Neutrogena cosmetics coupon!  #winnin 😄

Ive been looking for a beauty balm, tinted moisturizer type of product, because I can't justify spending $42 on another Laura Geller tinted moisture,  although I love it. 

I purchased it knowing the shade was too dark but I wanted to see if I could make it work... And I did! 

I love this product for my everyday, no makeup makeup days.  It doesn' provide ultra coverage but nicely evens out the skin tone and shadows dark spots on skin. It is light weight and breathable. 

I recommend this product to anyone looking for a light weight, sheer coverage.

Not sure how I feel about this product yet. I bought it because my maybelline B.B. fresh skin perfecter is almost out so I thought I’d give something else a shot. I’m not a fan of full coverage foundation because it always looks cakey on my skin so I usually shy more towards a tinted moisturizer. This one sometimes streaks when I apply it to my face. However, it does not oxidize and turn a different color throughout the day on my face which is good. Not quite sure how well the “acne prevention” part of this makeup is doing, but only time will tell.

I’m only giving this 3 stars because the color is way too orange for my skin, and I’m the same color for all of my other products but this is just too orange. It is also quite oily and makes my skin feel gross and clogged. I don’t like this product for me and my skin. Maybe for someone who has really dry skin and a really orange complexion, this might work for them.

I’m not head over heals in love with this formula, but I would buy again. If i forget to pack my bb cream, this is one I would
heavily consider. I love anything has salicylic acid to help clear pores and clear acne. The last time I used this one there wasn’t a lot of range in colors, maybe it’s time to give it another try.

It works great as a tinted moisturizer but it doesn't really do much on the acne control side, which I was kind of disappointed by because I was super a moisturizer that would help. In face every time I use it, my gave breaks out.more so that was pretty disappointing. But it's still a good moisturizer.

I definitely love this foundation, use it every time. Met my expectations well. It has very nice packaging, looks super neat. It doesn’t feel harsh at all to my skin. No need for improvement. I love this product so much.

I’m not sure if it’s just me but I don’t find that this really help clearing my blemishes. I know that it won’t clear them instantly but I don’t think it works well. Don’t get me wrong I love Neutrogena 90% if my skincare products is from them but I think this product in particular I won’t be reaching for

I was giving a sample product for testing purposes on another site. I highly recommend this product if your struggling with mild acne and don’t want to clog your pores while achieving a decent amount of makeup coverage. It’s a light tint so it’s not full coverage . I found it to be perfect.

I absolutely hated this product. Well it seemed like a good idea at the time when I was trying to get away from more heavy concealers and foundations, making the choice to get a tinted moisturizer seemed like a really good idea. Sadly, Neutrogena was not the right choice. I even particularly got the version to help with acne and whiteheads and blackheads but the oiliness of the product only caused more issues with my skin. Currently it is used as a backup in the event that I somehow have no access to my preferred foundations. And when I say back up I mean is gathering dust.

I got thus recently for summer because it's lightweight and light coverage I just want to know if it's actually good for acne.
