hey, i'm not jim, but i will tell you I just started using the neutrogena healthy skin and I did have an initial breakout. When I first put it on, it stings. I thought, oh no, i better get this off! But within 15 seconds, it stopped. It does feel greasy on my face, so i've been tempted to wash off, but i'm trying to be patient. it does feel better after about a half hour on the skin. it doesn't feel as greasy. after i put it on last night, it seemed like immediately there were 3 new zits, just small clogged porees. I resisted the temptation to pop(not easy) and just went ot bed. when i woke up this morning, 2 of them had gone away and the other one was a very small whitehead, so it was ready for popping. So, if you try, my advice would be to stick with it for a few weeks and to just be patient. don't look in the mirror immediately after applying. you may not like what you see (LOL) because it looks greasy. walk away and do something for 15 minutes, then go back and finish getting ready or whatever you do. good luck! i'll keep you posted if there's any good or bad news to report.
