  • Use it for scent, not for moisturizer

    Jul 7, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great as a light perfume
    Cons: Don't expect it to replace your moisturizer...it almost does the opposite.

    Summary: This product's name is slightly deceptive, because it contains the word "oil". It makes you believe it will moisturize your skin, but it seems to do just the opposite. I think the product is marketed in the wrong way. It shouldn't be sold as ... read more

  • Sesame oil is for cooking, not moisturizing.

    May 31, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Neutrogena recognizes "oil" is not a four letter word in skincare.
    Cons: There are better, more soothing, and less greasier oils than sesame.

    Summary: I make a great chicken salad with a garlic and sesame oil. I use sesame oil to saute all my fried rice dishes, and sesame oil can be brushed over grilled kabobs to give them a real zing! Sesame oil, however, would not be my first choice for ... read more

    Jan 26, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A serious way to lock in moisture. Skin is smooth, silky, NOT oily after drying.
    Cons: Product quickly runs out of bottle, so it can spill, or too much is used.

    Summary: Neutrogena Body Oil Sesame Formula is somewhat of a misnomer. It is not an "oily" product that is slippery or takes forever to dry. It doesn't remind me of anything having to do with sesame oil, but has a pleasant, fresh, slightly perfume-y scent. ... read more
