    I just don't have a single bad thing to say about this moisturizer. I have oily skin, but between my slightly drying cleanser, the harshness of winter weather, and the fact that I'm 29, I have recently found need for a moisturizer. I originally bought an expensive one from Reflect.com, and this one, the Neutrogena Moisture Oil-Free for Combination Skin, at around the same time. I liked them both, but really the only big differences between the two were that the expensive one had a nice perfumey scent, and didn't come with as much product (I think it was maybe 1 oz, compared to the 4 oz of the Neutrogena). I have since purchased another bottle of the Neutrogena and will probably continue to do so in the future, as I find it moisturizes very nicely, keeps my skin soft, and controls oiliness impressively well.

    This lotion is nice-- it has some positive qualities, but it has some negative ones as well.
    The moisturizer has a gel-like consistency. I'd say it's much better for oily skin types rather than combination skin types: the "Microsponge" thingies do indeed suck up oil and leave you with a matte complexion... matte because it's dried-out. To overcome that effect, I have to use much more than the recommended two pumps. Also, the moisturizer doesn't come with any SPF at all, which is a minus.
    However, the formula hasn't yet caused a single breakout in the months I've been using the bottle-- which is another plus, you get 4 ounces of this stuff for less than what you get 1 oz of other moisturizers in the Neutrogena line. So, to sum up-- much better for oily skin than for combination, and you get a lot for your money, but you'll definitely have to add another step each morning because it doesn't have a built-in sunblock.

    Comments about Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture, Combination Skin, 4 fl oz:

    This is hardly moisturizing at all. Maybe the fact that it is the winter season makes it even worse since my skin is drier. This moisturizer seems like the perfect moisturizer for people who really don't need moisturizer...people with really oily skin...It was silly of me to get it. On the plus side, it doesn't seem to cause breakouts & isn't greasy which is nice.

      I was looking for a light lotion for my face, this one is wonderful. Some of the others I have used were too heavy for daily use. This one is light goes on quickly, soaks in quickly.

            I know this product is 'oil-free' but it literally feels like you're putting oil on your face. I am going to buy a new moisturizer RIGHT AWAY; very disappointed with this.

                Comments about Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture, Combination Skin, 4 fl oz:

                This moisturizer is not at all greasy. It actually gives skin a nice matte finish. My skin goes through cycles of being dry and flaky then very oily. This lotion works well year round for me. It isn't the most hydrating lotion, so it probably doesn't work as well on severely dry skin. I find that this moisturizer is a perfect base for make-up. It creates a moisturized and smooth finish. Other lotions leave a sticky feel that powder sticks to, making it look cake-like. But not this one. This lotion absorbs well, isn't sticky at all, and one bottle lasts for many months.

                  Comments about Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture, Combination Skin, 4 fl oz:

                  This moisturizer is the best on the market if you have combination skin. I have a very oily T-zone and dry cheeks. This product really does a great job of hydrating my dry areas while keeping my oily T-zone mattified. Amazing! It leaves my face soft and dewy without being shiny. I used to use Olay's Moisturizer for combination skin but this product is so much better. I love it!!!

                  I received excellent service from drugstore.com as usual. My delivery was on time and everything was packaged securely. I love drugstore.com!

                    Comments about Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture, Combination Skin, 4 fl oz:

                    I've used this lotion for 8 or so years now and it never fails me. I have combination skin, and this lotion neither makes me break out or leaves me too dry. It absorbs well so I can put it on before I put on my make-up and it still applies well. I have pretty sensitive skin and it doesn't bother it. Occasionally, in the winter, my skin will get extra dry so I'll use the Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture, Sensitive Skin variety before I go to bed. That's a heavier lotion though, so I don't use it regularly or in the morning under make-up.

                      I use one pump of this and I get enough to cover my face and neck. It has a gel-like consistency and absorbs really well for me! I have Combination/Oily skin and I still get oily on my T-zone, but that's after a couple of hours. It really moisturizes though!! Great product at a great price.

                        Like other reviewers have noted, this doesn't moisturize well. I put it on, it absorbs quickly, but then nothing. Almost as if I hadn't put any moisturizer on, and my dry spots are still as dry as before. This is probably better for combo skins in the summer, when it is more warm and humid. Otherwise this doesn't do what it needs to do during the other seasons.

                          I personally find this to be my favorite moisturizer EVER, but there a few problems people may find with it. It is not really very moisturizing, especially if your skin is flaky or very dry to begin with, so you may either need to mix it with another moisturizer if you plan on putting this on before any powder (like I do) or reapply it a few times if you are not wearing any makeup. Personally though, I love that it is fragrance free, oil free, AND it contains silica and no alcohol. It doesn't cause me any breakouts (and I have VERY acneprone/sensitive skin), and it really prevents my skin from getting oily, and creates a nice matte effect if I put mineral powder on my skin after applying it. Overall, if your skin doesn't need really heavy moisturizer, then I HIGHLY recommend this.
