While this may be called “Original Formula,” it’s actually not. Neutrogena repackaged and renamed the real original formula (now sold as Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream Night) and slapped “Original Formula” on this version with SPF 15. The results are disappointing. Why? Because it lacks the UVA-protecting ingredients of titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, avobenzone, Mexoryl SX (ecamsule), or Tinosorb and is, therefore, not recommended. Yes, the ingredients list titanium dioxide, but because it is not among the active ingredients it cannot be relied on for sun protection.

If this supplied better UVA protection, it would be a good way to combine daily sun protection with antioxidants and anti-aging ingredient retinol.

Such a combination is not a pipe dream! You can find a variety of options on our Best Moisturizers with Sunscreen list.

Neutrogena is one of few brands that have an equally large presence in both the U.S. and in Canada. Unfortunately, many of the formulas and product names that Neutrogena uses are not interchangeable between the two countries, a fact that has been brought to our attention by our astute Canadian readers (who make up about 10% of our Beautypedia readership). In an effort to clear up a lot of the confusion surrounding Neutrogena Canada products, The Cosmetics Cop Team has done research in Canadian drugstores to determine the ingredients and product names as they appear on Neutrogena's Canadian packaging.

Please note that if a product does not appear on this list, it means that, to the best of our knowledge, that product has the same name and formula in the U.S. as it does in Canada. You'll find the reviews for such products under the main Neutrogena brand. That overlap means Canadian readers may find they have to switch between both Neutrogena and Neutrogena Canada to locate the product review they're seeking, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

In some cases the differences between the U.S. and Canadian version of a Neutrogena product is only an ingredient or two, and in other cases the entire formula is different. Despite The Cosmetics Cop Team best efforts, there are no doubt products that have been overlooked on this list. As much as we would like it to be comprehensive, we are restricted by what is on store shelves at the time we conduct our research. If you have any additional information about Neutrogena Canada products, we encourage you to contact us using the link at the bottom of the product's review page.

    • I am so disappointed that this daytime moisturizer doesn't measure up. It feels beautiful on my skin and applies like liquid silk, also, it is the first daytime product that doesn't make my eyes tear. I suppose I understand why now, as there isn't the sunscreen ingredients that I need or am used to.
