This product is a mixed bag that some will still find beneficial but ultimately we cannot recommend with enthusiasm. The disappointment is that the sunscreen lacks the UVA-protecting ingredients of titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, avobenzone (also known as butyl methoxydibenzoylmethane), ecamsule, or Tinosorb. As such, it is not recommended for sun protection. However, it contains approximately 8% AHA (glycolic acid) formulated to ensure it functions as an exfoliant. The formula is best for normal to dry skin and contains a small but potentially helpful mix of antioxidants. It is worth considering as an exfoliant, but the lack of reliable UVA protection should give you pause.

Softens and smoothes skin, evens out blotchy and uneven skin tones, reduces the appearance of fine lines and daily SPF 15 helps prevent premature lines and wrinkles.

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.

    Good alpha hydroxy
    • Great alpha hydroxy product. I get around the poor sunscreen and oily finish by using it at night - great workaround!
