Tested: Neutrogena Multi-Defence Daily Moisturiser - Week Four

This is my final post on the Neutrogena Multi-Defence Daily Moisturiser, so this will be a full review of the past month.  

First off here are my 'doctor' notes gathered from the past month:

Overall notes:
- Skin looks healthy and dewy opposed to oily.
- Skin feels refreshed and replenished on each application.
- Flakes off if make up applied to soon after application.
- Product doesn't cause breakout.
- Skin has become a lot less red.
- Compatible with with other skin products.

I have nothing to add to this, although if you have oily skin like myself, I would recommend using a mattifying foundation to help keep the 'sweaty' look at bay.  I hate looking dull in the S/S months - your skin should glow, so I have come to find that with my oily skin type that if you use a mattifying moisturiser in the places which get extremely oily it really helps.  I'm going to stop rambling and get on with the review.  

Overall, this is a great skin product.  One pump is just the right amount to moisturise your entire face and neck.  I've only used a third of the bottle, so it should last me another two months with continued religious use.  It is £7.95 a bottle which I think is a tad overpriced.  I managed to get mine on a special introductory price for £4.99 which I think is much better.  In terms of what the product is meant to do, i've noticed a dramatic difference in my skin tone - it is far less red than it was a month ago. 

The only real problem I faced with this product was the flakey skin.  When you're busy going to work or university, you don't have time to allow a moisturiser to soak in for a good hour before applying make up.  It doesn't seem to happen so much if you use a primer on top.  

I would give this product a rating of 3.5/5

Are there any products you think are worth a try?

  1. I use The Body Shop's Vitamin E Moisture Cream as part of my regime every day and I LOVE it. It absorbs quickly but effectively and I have had no flaking problems when rushing to get ready for uni in the mornings. I also use the cleanser and toner and it works really well for my skin. Even my oily forehead!
