Neutrogena Fine Fairness Lotion SPF 30 Review

Hi Ladies,

I am a brand new member of IMBB and this is my first article. Since I purchased Neutrogena fine fairness lotion spf 30 recently so I thought of reviewing this product first.

Neutrogena fine fairness lotion SPF 30 is a product of fine fairness range (which also include clenser, toner, cream, essence, deep whitening mask, eye cream). You can check it out on their website But the packaging in the website is different from what I purchased in Delhi. But kya fark padta hai as long as ingredients are same. This range contains Healthy white Complex which is a potent combination of active ingredients. Clinically proven to suppress melanin production to improve skin clarity and lighten dark spots. Healthy white complex contain- Essencial soy, stabilized vitamin C, vit B3, portulace extract. Ita a daily moisturizing lotion, cost me around Rs250/- for 50ml. It has a shell life of 2years so I don’t think it’s a bad deal.

About Neutrogena fine fairness lotion-

Neutrogena fine fairness lotion is a non-greasy, mattefying lotion formulated to moisturize and protect skin with the added advantage of spf 30. Much lighter in texture than Neutrogena fine fairness cream, with instant whitening effect. Comes with a pump dispenser so no touching or contamination.

Suitable for: all skin type but in summers oily skin may find it little shiny (as I found). This is may be due to the presence of light diffusing-minerals present in it.

See the shiny lotion, It’s a translucent, slightly runny lotion with mild scent.

Look– Can you see the instant whitening or should I call it whitish cast? Well, all absorbed into the skin leaving a soft and glowy skin.

However- If you have oily skin as I do it will give a slight shine to your face after sometime. With dry skin it will go just wonderful. Now to sum up let me write some quick pros and cons-

PROS of Neutrogena Fine Fairness Lotion SPF 30

  • Moisturizer with an added advantage of SPF.
  • Contains healthy white complex which are essential soy, stabilized vit C, vit B3, portulace.. Vitamin C is known for its antioxidant properties.
  • Decently priced.
  • Dermatologist recommended.
  • It claims, its non comedogenic, ie.,it wont clog pores (although I got 3small pimples on my cheeks don’t know why!)
  • Comes with a pump dispenser so no much wastage. You know how much to pump out.
  • – leading brand’s high-tech product.
  • Easily available.

CONS of Neutrogena Fine Fairness Spf 30

  • Oily skin may feel it a bit greasy after some time.
  • Although it claims matte effect, it didn’t mattify me.
  • May leave a white cast if not blended properly or applied in excess amount.
  • Fairness products are not healthy if used for a long time (scientific research says it)
  • It says for all skin type but it will suit dry skin most.
  • In winters lotion wont moisturize sufficiently. You have to use an intense moisturizer or cream form.
  • A strict no-no for dry skin in winters.

Will I repurchase it- not sure because am not obsessed with fairness like majority of Indian girls and for oily skin specially in summers oil-free moisturizers are best. I purchased this product cos I just wanted to try it. Moreover I don’t like the slight but whitish cast and shine it gives to my face. Now I use it on my tanned arms so that my arms become fair and I can enjoy sleeveless dresses, and I don’t mind the shine it gives to my arms and shoulders.

  1. Nice review dear.
    I am also trying to get the perfect product to lighten my face.
    I am not obsessed with fair skin or something….just that my face is darker than my hands too…leave alone my body and legs 🙁 🙁 :-(( :-((
    Since you mentioned its greasy I will avoid this as I have oily skin.
    Thanx for the review. :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*
    I will save some money for trying other products now. 😛 😛 😛

    1. Hey Jinal, before trying out this, i ws using Revlon touch and glow fairness cream (with sunscreen) costed just 110/- It gave me matte effect. I ws very satisfied using it (in summers too). You can consider it.. :-))

    1. 😀 actually, i just pumped2 or 3 times but the lotion is soooo dilute that it spread quickly making an impression that i hv pumped a lot. Moreover, i want it to finish off soon 😛 😛 😛

  2. Hi prerna, welcome to IMBB. :)) Neutrogena products dont suit my skin at all. I have used their fine fairness under eye cream and it rather dried my under eye area. :((

    But anyway good it works for you and a nice detailed review. 🙂

  3. hi prerna, nice review…. :yes: :yes:
    i also agree with the whitish cast :-/
    but i have found another nice use to it… I use it as a makeup base like a tinted moisturiser… and it has made me look nice at evenings out…. It is just perfect for a night out…

  4. Plz suggest me some good moisturiser. i have normal skin. I also suffered from frequent breakouts/pimples recently but now its under control apart from the dark marks it has left behind. suggest wat to do to lighten these marks..

  5. Apt review Prerna,i tried Neutrogena fine fairness, mainly to get rid of the acne marks on my face, as i am obsessed with having a blemish free skin.To my horror this cream left a white shiney sheen,my skin broke out big time.Right now i am using it as hand cream, but the white sheen is horrible. :((

  6. i have oily skin……. :reallyangry: and pimples toooo :scream: so please tell me is their any whitning cream for me :preen: im 4rm srilanka 🙁
