Not for everyone
Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Acne, Anti-Aging (Fine lines & Wrinkles), Whiteheads/Closed Comedones

Ok so I am a mostly dry combination skin and I love this product. The scent is very pleasant and it sinks in very fast which makes it suitable for daytime use. It leaves my skin feeling extremely soft after it sinks in but the major drawback is the fact that for some reason it doesn't work for my skin as it causes slight burn and makes it breakout even more than before. I am extremely sad I can't use this on my dry cheeks because I love it but there is one ingredient on it my skin seems to hate.

it felt like fire on my face
Skin Type: dry Skin
Skin Concerns: Acne, Large Pores, Sensitive Skin, Dehydrated Skin

I have very dry, sensitive skin. I was recommended Neutrogena products by my dermatologist. I love the Hydroboost soap, so I thought the Watergel would be a good moisturizer to try. I put it on my face (like an idiot, didn't do a spot test), and within about a minute my face was burning. I have a high pain tolerance and I tried to tough it out to see if it would go away. Spoiler alert: it did not stop. I ended up washing my face then and there to make my skin stop burning.
My sister loves it though, so clearly I'm just sensitive.

Meh.
Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Blackheads, Large Pores, Whiteheads/Closed Comedones

I started using it because I ran out of my favorite cream and I was like, why not? it was cheaper and I've heard good reviews of it. It does leave my skin more hydrated, but nothing way too impressive, and I hate the smell (actually I hate products with fragrances in general, but well). Sometimes it feels a liiitle bitch itchy (and my skin is not sensitive), but nothing too crazy. It does absorbs quickly, and it leaves the skin feeling hydrated, but to be honest, it does not convince me. I feel it just a little aggressive, without being irritating. It is not completely bad and I will finish it now, but definitely wouldn't buy again. It is just meh to me!
