I bought this mascara because the package showed a big thick bristle brush, I can't stand the small bruses, or the plastic ones. This mascara is the best because it adds so much volume, does't make my lashes stick together, and it doesn't make your lashes look tacky when you put a lot on, has a very natural look. There are two things I can't stand about it though. You need to definately use an eyelash curler before you use it though, because it does nothing to curl lashes. Also, I always wash my face off every night, and no matter how much I rub my eyes with make up remover (I've used expensive brands for this!) I always wake up with smudges around my eyes. Overall, the pros definately outweigh the cons. Best mascara ever!

I have severely dry eyes and Neutrogena mascaras have typically been most tolerable for all-day wear. I prefer the Lash Tint though (sadly no longer available on drugstore.com). Healthy Volumne goes on well, pretty clump-free, and lasts well but it doesn't come off easily with Steri-llid (great eyelash cleanser for people with dry eyes) or my regular cleanser (Philosophy). I'll continue to use but won't buy again. Will search out Lash Tint instead.

Comments about Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara, Black/Brown 03, 1 ea:

I generally love Neutrogena products and have used them for years. I purchased this mascara for the first time a few years ago and was happy with it at first - it goes on easily, defines and separates my lashes without clumping, and washes off with my usual facial cleanser. But the last tube I purchased irritated my eyelids and seems to dryout/flake during my work day, and it seems more difficult to remove (without eye makeup remover). I may have rec'd a tube from a bad batch or they may have changed the formula, but within 2 days it caused an eczema-like, painful rash just above my lash line that cleared up as soon as I stopped using it. I've gone back to my old go-to mascara - Maybelline Full n' Soft - love it, daily use and no problems!

Comments about Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara, Black/Brown 03, 1 ea:

Ever since high school back in the late 70's, I had used Maybelline Great Lash Mascara faithfully. It went on easy, built up my lashes both in length and width and was inexpensive and easy to use. But, as I got older, I became annoyed with the raccoon eye effect at the end of the day, especially when someone brought it to my attention, a male no less!

At first, I tried just using it on my upper lids, but it still ended up in the bottom corners of my eyes by 3 PM. So, I began experimenting with different brands and formulas for a while without success. My search brought me to the 'net where I looked for reviews on the most recommended mascara. Neutrogena Health Volume popped up time and time again. And, not just the Healthy Volume, but specifically Black 02.

Some reviewers stated that they were disappointed that it didn't add fullness just length. Well, that was exactly what I was looking for! At my age, I don't need to have "brush-style" looking lashes. Long lush-looking length is more than enough for me with an added touch of liner on those days when I want to add definition.

It lasts all day even in humid weather and comes off without issue using a mild eye makeup remover. Plus, my lashes feel healthier and don't fall out as much as they used to from using other harsher mascaras.

I highly recommend this mascara for ladies looking for lengthy eyelashes without the dramatic definition that most of the younger set is seeking. It works; it works well; and it doesn't cost an arm or a leg.

    Comments about Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara, Black/Brown 03, 1 ea:

    This may be a good product choice for those without allergies. I liked the way it looked. However, if you have a problem with fragrance and allergies around the eyes, this may not be the choice for you. I smelled the very sweet, flowery scent all day. More than that, however, it made my eyes itch. Neither the smell nor the itch went away until I took it off.

        I love Neutrogena products so I was excited to see that they make mascara. I'm not that choosy about mascara but I was very disappointed in these. I bought the black and the brownest black. I didn't like the color of the brownish one, nor did I like the way either went on. They didn't make my lashes look much longer or fuller, and they tended to clump.

        Best drugstore Mascara

        Comments about Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara, Black/Brown 03, 1 ea:

        This is by far the best drugstore mascara available, and better than all but one of the high end mascaras I've ever tried (and I've tried them all) This goes on nicely without clumping and never gives spidery lashes. It is fairly light and natural looking with one coat, but if you add a few more you can still get the nighttime dramatic look, still looking feathery but thick without clumps. This is now my favorite though because it actually improved my eyelashes. I don't know if other mascaras were making them less healthy, but after using this awhile, my eyelashes are longer and thicker than before. I use it every day.

          I have tried alot of mascara's in my days,and this one works great!!!! I also have dark circles and no extra darkness under my eyes from the mascara. I wish Neutrogena would stop introducing new mascara's that are of less quality than this one.

            This product is awful. Clumpy, sticky, too thick - right out of the package. I even washed the applicator off and tried it a second time and it still came out kind of dried out and glopy. Totally gross - I started to put it on my lashes, to see if maybe it smoothed out in application -- I was wrong. If I can figure out how to upload my own pic's of this product, I will - buyer be warned.

              I've been searching for a replacement for the Maybelline Unstoppable mascara that I used to use, and haven't found the one yet. This stuff looks great when you put it on, but smudges like crazy. When I take it off with eye makeup remover before bed, I still wake up with smudges in the morning, because maybe it was hiding somewhere?

              The search continues...
