Neutrogena Healthy Defense Liquid Moisturizer Overview
We’ve talked about how it’s difficult to have it all in one product. We know we need moisture. We know we need anti-aging help. And we know we need sunscreen. Wouldn’t it be nice to find one product that does it all? Well, while we keep dreaming about that, there are at products that come close.
Take Neutrogena Healthy Defense Liquid Moisturizer for instance. With SPF 50, it’s got moisture and sun protection covered. If it works, that is. And while it’s not many, there are some anti-aging components too. So we’re going to look closer to see what this product claims to do and whether or not it lives up to those claims.
Neutrogena Healthy Defense Liquid Moisturizer is a lightweight moisturizer that’s not greasy, but is able to keep your skin hydrated all day long. Meanwhile it’s got antioxidants to fight some of the damage that’s already been done and full broad spectrum protection from the sun’s rays.
As for the moisturizing aspect of Neutrogena Healthy Defense Liquid Moisturizer, it’s got glycerin and some silicones. Nothing too fancy, but it does the job while still being lightweight. As for the anti-aging part, there’s Vitamin E for antioxidant protection and nourishment it provides. As for the sunscreen portion, it’s got Neutrogena’s Broad Spectrum SPF50 Helioplex technology. It provides both UVA and UVA protection, blocking 98% of the rays that cause sunburn and 96% of the rays that cause premature aging of your skin.
And that pretty much covers it. Since it’s sun protection, you apply Neutrogena Healthy Defense Liquid Moisturizer daily in the morning. And of course you can reapply throughout the day if you find it to be necessary. You should be aware that it’s very liquid-y, almost milky, to the point that you need to shake it before applying.

Where to Buy
You can find Neutrogena Healthy Defense Liquid Moisturizer almost anywhere. It’s in drugstores, big retail stores, Ulta, and online. The Neutrogena website sells the 1.4 ounce bottle for $13.99 which seems to be standard everywhere we looked.
If you’re quite young and don’t have dry skin, Neutrogena Healthy Defense Liquid Moisturizer may be the only thing you need during the day for a few more years yet. It provides a degree of moisture as well as real, solid protection from the sun. If you’re older and/or have drier skin, you can still use Neutrogena Healthy Defense Liquid Moisturizer, but you may need something a little more moisturizing and with a few more anti-aging ingredients in addition. Either way, it seems like you can’t beat the texture in a broad spectrum sunscreen product.
