Review Overview

This moisturizer is suitable for sensitive skin because of its blend of mild ingredients and a complete lack of fragrance. What’s missing (and keeping this from earning a higher rating) is a range of barrier repair ingredients, soothing agents, and a more diverse blend of antioxidants. It’s not a bad moisturizer for sensitive, dry skin, but not as state-of-the-art as it could’ve been.

Claims

Neutrogena Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin is a lightweight, water-based moisturizer that provides gentle yet effective moisturization for even the most sensitive skin.

Ingredients

Water, Glycerin, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Dimethicone, Petrolatum, Cyclomethicone, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Sterols, Isopropyl Isostearate, Cetyl Alcohol, PEG-10 Soy Sterol, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Carbomer, Tetrasodium EDTA, Sodium Hydroxide, Diazolidinyl Urea, Ethylparaben, Methylparaben, Propylparaben

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.

Worry free

My reactive skin didn't react so I would recommend this basic lotion for easily irritated and redness prone skin. It's a much better deal than the also good La Roche-Posay Rosaliac moisturizer.

Beautypedia Team Response

Hi there!  I've e-mailed Neutrogena to see if they can provide this information and if/when I hear back from them, I'll let you know :)

-Beautypedia Team

Update 3/12/2015:  Neutrogena Canada replied to me & unfortunately stated that they are unable to provide me with this information because they consider it proprietary.  If you were asking because of a soy allergy or sensitivity, I would recommend avoiding this one.
