    This is a great summertime moisturizer with a full sprectrum sunscreen. Even though I have worked in luxury skincare, I still go back to Neutrogena because this product really works when the temperature and humidity rise. Expensive moisturizers tend to appear greasy, but Healthy Defense absorbs quickly and makeup does not slide off in two minutes.

    I loved that it had SPF 50 and I felt relieved being protected from long term exposure to UV rays. However I noticed I started breaking out after using this product. I rarely get acne and I was sad to start getting acne after the use of this product. I continued to use this product to rule out of it was due to the initial response to the product. I continued to use it for a couple months and continued to break out so I switched back to my daily face moisturizer with SPF 15 instead.

      Comments about Neutrogena Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 50 with Helioplex, 1.7 oz:

      I normally use a different Neutragena moisterizer, but I wanted to try the 50 SPF. Sad to say, it acts more like a sunscreen than a moisterizer - it sits on my face, rather than moisturize, doesn't blend well with foundations or powders and as a sunscreen doesn't add convenience because I still need to do ears, etc.
      With dry winter heat and aging skin, I need moisture always, sunscreen only sometimes.

            Comments about Neutrogena Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 50 with Helioplex, 1.7 oz:

            It made my skin break out! I normally use Philosophy's Hope in a Jar with SPF 30, but I am looking for a replacement since it is a little pricey ($30+) and drugstore.com no longer carries it, so I decided to give this moisturizer by Neutrogena a try. Normally I have pretty easy going skin but this made my face breakout after a couple of days of use. I applied it in the morning after my shower and it made my skin look so healthy... like it was glowing! BUT after two days it made my face break out, not horribly, but enough to make me concerned. I discontinued use for a few days and my face cleared up. I loved the way this made my skin looked so I decided to try it out again but the same thing happened. I stopped using it again and once again my face cleared up. I wanted to love this because of its awesome sun protection and how nice it made my skin looked but the breakouts were a deal breaker. But with that being said, everyone's skin reacts differently to products so this may be perfect for you. Sadly, my search for a moisturizer with at least an SPF of 30 continues.

                  The moisturizer has some suncscreen in it, but I don't think it really has enough to seriously protect against sun damage. It is meant as a compromise between a moisturizer and a sunscreen, I think, but if you really need a sunscreen you are better off using a product that really provides lots of coverage. And if you don't need a sunscreen, why expose yourself to unnecessary chemicals?

                  I am rather sorry I bought this, and I wouldn't do it again.

                    I decided to try this mosturizer because I did not the the way my usual one felt on my skin. I have used Nuetrogena for years, but had never tried this one before. While it does protect my face from the sun, and goes on smoothly, it does not asorb well and leaves a white film on my skin, which makes me look even paler than normal. This may not be a problem for someone who uses foundation over it, but didn't work well for me.

                        I almost never review items, but WOW was this moisturizer not for me. Since I have oily skin, I find it important to have a good moisturizer so that my skin doesn't dry out and overproduce oil later. But this feels so greasy on my face! It feels like I'm wearing only greasy sunscreen. I've been using this for about two weeks now and my face has been constantly breaking out too. At first, I thought it was just my diet, but when I went back to my old moisturizer and my skin looked much better. Also, as other reviewers have pointed out, if this gets anywhere near your eyes, it will sting.

                        I'm not saying it's bad, I'm just saying it's probably not for people like me with oily skin who need more of a water or gel-based moisturizer. And note: I also have very sensitive skin, so that might have played a role too. So if you're one of those people, definitely pass on this. I'll stick to my regular moisturizer with the spray Neutrogena sunscreen on top.
