Review Overview

Deep Wrinkle Anti-Wrinkle Moisture SPF 20 provides a convenient, elegant way for you to experience an in-part avobenzone sunscreen in a lightly moisturizing base with retinol and a tiny amount of water-binding agents. This isn’t at the same level of formulary excellence as Neutrogena’s tinted Healthy Skin Enhancer SPF 20, but it’s worth a try if you have normal to slightly oily skin. This product will not fill in the look of deep wrinkles within two weeks. That’s wishful thinking! Neutrogena should have settled for what works and left the other claim to less reputable cosmetics companies. Note that the inactive ingredients are presented in alphabetical order due to this sunscreen’s status as an over-the-counter (OTC) drug.

Claims

Deep Wrinkle Moisture SPF 20 uncovers vibrant, healthier looking skin with fewer visible wrinkles starting in just 2 weeks. Hyaluronic acid adds line plumping moisture, Retinol|SA helps smooth wrinkles fast and diminish the look of age spots, and Helioplex delivers superior protection against skin aging UVA rays

Brand Overview

Neutrogena At-A-Glance:

Strengths: Inexpensive; some superior water-soluble cleansers; good topical scrubs; effective AHA and BHA products; several retinol options, all in stable packaging; vast selection of sunscreens, most of which offer excellent UVA protection; good variety of self-tanning products; several fragrance-free options; most Healthy Skin products are state-of-the-art; almost all of the foundations with sunscreen provide sufficient UVA protection; the Moistureshine Gloss.

Weaknesses: An overabundance of overlapping anti-aging products that is perennially confusing for consumers; Bar soap; most of the toners are irritating or boring; a handful of bland moisturizers and eye creams; some sunscreens lack sufficient UVA protection or contain too much alcohol or problematic preservatives; most of the Deep Clean products are terrible; no effective skin-lightening products; jar packaging; mostly disappointing concealers and eyeshadows; most of the lip balms with sunscreen provide inadequate UVA protection; mostly poor mascaras.

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.
