Dual Treatment Moisture Lotion with SPF 15 claims to not clog pores (as do many other moisturizers), but the titanium dioxide and thickeners in this product make it easy to refute that claim. You may or may not break out from this in-part titanium dioxide sunscreen, but either way it is not recommended because it contains the skin-sensitizing preservatives methylchloroisothiazolinone and methylisothiazolinone.

Johnson & Johnson–owned Purpose is a very small line of products that make a big deal out of their gentleness and suitability for sensitive skin. We have a lot of respect for many J&J products, particularly in their Neutrogena and Aveeno lines; however, Purpose is best summed up by a purposeful "don't bother." There is only one great product in this line, and it can also be found (for less money) in the Clean & Clear line (and that line also offers a fragrance-free version of the cleanser). The remaining products are absolutely not "gentle enough for all skin types, even sensitive skin." That's because none of them contain ingredients that are what sensitive skin needs to look and feel better. The bar soap is drying and the fragrance irritating, while the daytime moisturizers contain potentially sensitizing ingredients, including active sunscreen agents that no research anywhere has proven capable of reducing facial redness.
