I am only a skincare and makeup enthusiast recommending products that I’ve used and enjoyed. As for the product ingredients, I recommend reading the label or looking the ingredient list up online and making your own informed decisions about what is best for you and your skin.
Neutrogena has some of my favorite drugstore products for sensitive skin. One of my favorite lines from Neutrogena is the Hydro Boost (HB) Line. I love to use the HB Whipped Body Balm, and HB Body Gel Cream – Fragrance Free for my body. If you have dry skin or dry patches I would definitely recommend these products. These two product will have your body feeling smooth and hydrated all day. A few of the facial products I enjoy from this line are the HB City Shield Eye Serum, HB Gentle Cleansing Lotion, HB Cleansing Gel & Oil Free Makeup Remover with Hyaluronic Acid, and the HB Hydrating Overnight Mask. I honestly cannot say enough good things about these products. I like to use the two cleansers to double cleanse when I’m wearing makeup, if I don’t have on makeup I’ll just use the Cleansing Lotion. One thing I don’t like is that neither of these products lather/foam. I know dermatologist suggest we stay away from foaming cleansers because they are drying, irritating, and can cause long-term harm to the skin, but I’m having trouble getting use to non-foaming cleansers. The HB City Shield Eye Serum is the first eye serum I’ve used consistently and it worked wonders. This eye serum helped remove the dark circles around my eyes, and leaves the skin around my eyes feeling supple.
If you try any new makeup products from Neutrogena I recommend these four: Shine Control Matte Booster Face Primer + Serum, Healthy Lips Lip Plumping Serum, Healthy Skin Radiant Setting Spray, Healthy Skin Radiant Cream Concealer (Golden Medium/Deep 01).
The Healthy Skin line is a newer launch that I have been enjoying thus far. The Radiant Cream Concealer is a good alternative for the NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer. I love the setting spray, it provides a nice mist to the skin that helps the makeup settle into the skin. The Face Primer is great for my oily skin as well. I love that it’s not to greasy but provides a nice even canvas for makeup application. If I had to recommend only one of these four products it would be the Lip Plumper. If you’ve followed this blog for a while then you know I love a good moisturizing plumping gloss. I love the applicator on this product and use it every time I apply makeup or lip gloss. It’s also a great product to add to your at home pamper routine. The product does provide a boost of collagen and has a slight plumping affect.
The MoistureShine Lip Soother has got to be my favorite product from the entire brand. This is my all time favorite lip gloss it doesn’t provide any plumping, which is one of the things I like in a gloss. What I love about the gloss is that it leaves my lips feeling juicy but does not leave them sticky.
