Best Moisturizer For Oily Skin - Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture Review

By Ritujain
People with oily skin very well know that the struggle to find the perfect moisturizer is real because a moisturizer which gives you the adequate amount of nourishment for your skin without making it oily is a big challenge for the cosmetic and skincare brands. The products which moisturize also make the skin oily and the ones which do not make the skin oily, fail to give you the much needed moisture.
Now I myself do not have oily skin now. However why I know the problems associated with oily skin is because I used to have really oily and acne prone skin during my teenage. People who know me personally can very well tell that how I used to have acne all over my forehead and cheeks and how my nose always shined like I was wearing a highlighter.
As I grew older and stepped in twenties and then thirties, my skin continued to get drier. I noticed a significant change in my skin after pregnancy. There is so much that keeps going on at hormonal level inside your body which makes a huge impact on a number of things.
Now I have combination skin on my face. My T-zone means nose, forehead and chin is oilybut my c-zone means, my cheeks are very dry. So it's even more difficult for me to get my hands on one product which is capable of dealing efficiently with two absolutely different skin types on my face.
However, it has been nearly 2 years since I have found my holy grail drugstore moisturizer which works like a charm for oily and combination skin. Let me introduce you to

My Review of the Neutrogena Oil-free Moisture:
I have used it for more than 2 years and I can't live a day without applying this moisturizer on my face. I always buy it from my local Australian pharmacy "Priceline" when they have 40% off on skincare sale.
This moisturizer comes packed in an opaque white colored plastic bottle which has a pump dispenser. The pump dispenser dispenses just the right amount of product and can be twisted to lock the bottle. Due to this, the bottle is really travel friendly and there is no episode of any leakage that I have experienced ever. I traveled to Brisbane from Melbourne and went to India and came back to Australia and every time I was carrying a bottle of this moisturizer in my bag and it was absolutely fine.

The consistency of this moisturizer is medium which is neither too thick nor too runny and it spreads really easily. It feels like a gel based product and is required in very little amount. I use only 1 pump and it does the job for me.
It moisturizes the face really well and does not feel heavy or greasy at all. I apply it every morning after washing my face and it keeps my skin looking soft and nourished for good 9-10 hours.
Unlike other products that have disappointed me in the past, it has been a winner every since I used it for the first time. It controls the excess oil and shine on my T-zone and gives the right dose of the moisture to my dry c-zone without feeling sticky, greasy or oily. It gets absorbed very fast and dries quickly to give a matte finish to the skin. It is undoubtedly the best moisturizer for oily skin and combination skin. On the packaging it says that it has clinically proven MICROSPONGE system which controls excess oil and shine and imparts a fresh and matte looking finish to the skin and this claim made by the company is 100% true because that is what I experienced with this product.
Apart from being a good skincare staple item for me , it works really well under makeup also. It is non-comedogenic so will not clog your pores. Not just this but it is alcohol free as well as fragrance free so it is very kind and gentle for the skin. I personally love every bit about this product and will continue to buy it.
