Best of Neutrogena

 

There’s no denyig that I love the brand by Neutrogena. I’ve been obsessed with the foundation that was sent to me by the PR company a few weeks ago. A big thank you to Neutrogena and especially to Laura for this amazing product.

#Press samples

Let’s start with my favorite Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint which all I’ve been wearing since I got them. I want to share with you guys my thoughts on this hydrating tint foundation because it’s a new release from Neutrogena just recently.

The first time they sent to me this foundation, it was in Natural Ivory shade which was too light for my skin tone. Later, I received two other shades which are a good match for my skin type.

Natural Beige (60)

I really like this shade in Natural Beige. It’s a perfect match for my NC25 skin toned. I use my Elf beauty sponge to apply the foundation everytime and the finishing is flawless. It’s my most preferred method of application.

Soft Beige (50)

It comes in this very nice packaging. I love the packaging, it’s slim, it’s light and I think it’s plastic though it looks like glass, and it’s very heavy duty. It won’t break even if you drop it. So that’s cool!

Soft Beige can be a tad light and pink for me.  I would get lighter color coming up winter as the weather gets colder for some reason. So this would be perfect for me. I love this foundation, I’m just going to say I love it. It’s so unique and the formula is so different that it feels so lightweight and comfortable to wear on skin. It does reminds me of Make Up For Ever Water Blend foundation formula somehow but this one is a fraction of the price.

Natural Ivory (20)

I gave the Natural Ivory bottle to my daughter since she has lighter skin than me and she really likes it. She’s not a big fan of full coverage, full makeup girl so this she enjoys a lot.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It’s not a pump but a different type of applicator. It got a big doe foot applicator while I’ve never used a foundation like this before. It’s super easy application. You just throw it on your face. There’s no mess with finger application or brush.

The reason I love this foundation is because I do feel that at the end of the day, it doesn’t dries up my skin completely. This product does literally moisturize and plumps your skin and makes it feel so smooth and natural as if you just applied it. It’s very nice coverage and it does feel great on my dry skin.

Hydrating tint swatches

Here are the color swatches. From left to right: Natural Beige, Soft Beige and Natural Ivory. It claims to have hyaluronic acid in it and moisturizes and plumps skin for 24 hours and I agree with their claims.

Neutrogena tinted foundation

The coverage is light to medium. I highly recommend it. It is better than many highend foundations that give light to medium coverage. This one is a keeper and the best thing is that it’s from the drugstores.

Have you tried this Neutrogena product I’ve mentioned in this post? Share it in the comment below.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read. I’ll see you again on my next blog. Until then bye!

Get The Look with Neutrogena Hydro Boost Makeup

 

I’m completely obsessed with every single products which was sent to me by this pr company.  Most of you know that I love the brand Neutrogena and I’ve been wanting to try their makeup line for the longest time. So having these makeup products to try is truly a dream come true since we don’t have it here in Canada.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m introducing you guys to a line of makeup with hydrating hyaluronic acid from Neutrogena. I’ve four new products from the Hydro Boost line that I’m very excited to talk about today.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

First thing I want to talk about is the Hydro Boost Hydrating Lip Treatment by Neutrogena.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It comes in a clear transparent plastic packaging. Very easy to bring it along in your makeup bag. Super nourishing and gentle to the lips. On their website they claim that it makes lips look and feel hydrated for 24 hours. Honestly, I don’t wear makeup for more than 12 hours duration so I can’t tell if it stays hydrated for 24 hours but I can say that when I tried it on, I was quite impressed with the result. It’s not going anywhere unless you start eating.

neutrogena-lip-balm-swatch.jpg

Available only in one shade and here’s a swatch my finger pick up directly from the pan. A colorless pigment that you can wear and great for everyday. It’s jammed packed with products that a little really goes a long way. It’s moist and comfortable on the lips. Definitely snap it up before the arrival of cold and dry season.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If you’re new to the world of lip balm this is a great place to start because it’s very easy to work on and so affordable. It’s very hydrating to the lips and not waxy whatsoever. I had it on again yesterday and it lasted me for 3-4 hrs until I had a bowl of ramen noodle for lunch.

Neutrogena nourishing long wear

Moving on is the Nourishing Long Wear Eyeshadow + Build in Primer. I’ll be going through this quad for you and giving you my opinion. It comes in a stripe format which I really adore. I do like the color scheme in it. You’re getting four eyeshadows and a mini dual ended sponge applicator.

Color swatch hydro boost shadows

The quality of these shadows are pretty consistent in my opinion. It has that silky and velvety texture feels which I really like. This product will be amazing for beginners. And if, you want something that you could wear daily and yet get that natural look, these shades definitely fit the bill!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

These shadows are good, I mean we’re talking good pigmentation here. The shadow on my right side is very smooth and buttery to touch while the rest are equally smooth with a more powdery consistency. They’re easy to apply and blend nicely. They applied evenly which I really appreciate from powder shadows. I did noticed this shadow kick up some powder but it doesn’t really bother me very much since I just have to tap the excess powder off before I do my thing. I’d say these shades are nice for your every day wear.

Neutrogena hydrating tint

This Natural Ivory shade Hydrating Tint would be perfect for Nicole Kidman but it’s definitely too light for my NC25 skin tone. I’m going to skip talking about the color but instead focusing on the formula and the packaging.

I love the formula of this foundation. It claims as a hydrating foundation that’s better for your skin than wearing no makeup at all! I agree with their claim. It’s so lightweight and comfortable that you wouldn’t feel you had it on.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It comes in a cute bottle packaging with a silver twist on cap that looks really luxe. I do appreciate big doe foot applicator like so. It’s able to pick up products like no other.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love the formula so much, I need to get the correct shade for my skin tone right away. If you’re looking for a flawless look that’s good quality and great value for money, this product really packed a punch. It’s amazing!

As I was wrapping up this post, I received two darker shades foundation from my pr agent since the first one was too light. So I think I’ll do a separate post dedicated to this product. Don’t forget to stay tuned for the next post if you want to see other color swatches in action.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Another new lip product line I want to talk about is the Hydro Boost Hydrating Lip Shine.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The lip shine name is call Velvet Wine. A new formula that’s non-drying and not sticky. Lip gloss that locks the moisture and gives your lips that intense conditioning shine. As far as the wand applicator is concerned, I noticed that it comes a little too big. You need to pull and push the applicator with more force out or in from the tube. But the wand applies evenly and glides on the lips ever so smoothly if I can say so.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I highly recommend the shades Deep Cherry and Velvet Wine which is beautiful for fall and festive holidays. I just can’t get enough of this lovely color!

#LOTD On my lips I’m wearing the shade Velvet Wine

I’m loving it! My lips feels so moist, plump and juicy. It’s the best feeling ever for a lip shine in my opinion. It gives a luxurious finish that I truly appreciate. This is a winner in my book. Such a gorgeous formula that I’ll never get sick of. If you haven’t tried this Hydrating Lip Shine yet, I urge you to add this to your makeup bag!

Let me know what you think of these! Have you tried any makeup from Neutrogena? What are your favorite products?

Thank you guys for always reading, please comment and subscribe. I hope you guys enjoyed reading my opinion and how this product works for me.

Wishing you all a wonderful week! I’ll talk to you guys again soon. Bye!

New Drugstore Beauty First Impression

 

Hey everybody! Today’s post I went to Walmart actually and picked up two new products and I also got a new sample product from a PR company that I’ll talk later in this post. There was so much new makeup line actually but I just picked a few and I’m just going to jump right in.

New Drugstore Beauty 2017

I think it’s just time that we do our first impression with drugstore products. I haven’t done that in a minute here on my blog and so I wanted to that and share with your my thoughts. I hope you’re excited to see about them. Let’s go ahead and get started.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost
*Press sample

This product was sent to me for my honest opinion and I’m excited to announce the latest addition to the HYDRO BOOST collection Neutrogena® Hydro Boost Exfoliating Cleanser. 

I just received this product in my mail on Friday and it gives me the opportunity to do my first impression of all the products on the weekend.

Here’s the FEATURES & BENEFITS:

  • This lightweight exfoliating cleanser with naturally-derived skin smoothers effectively removes dirt, oil and dry surface skin
  • Formulated with purified hyaluronic acid, it works to increase skin’s hydration level
  • Gentle enough for daily use

Available September 2017 at nationwide at food, drug and mass merchandisers and retail price at $9.99 – 12.99 CAD / 141 g depending on where you are located.

Hydro Boost Exfoliating Cleanser

This Hydro Boost has white mini beads exfoliator in it. It smells really nice and fresh actually. The packaging is in a nice tube format with a white cap. It says on the back of the packaging that this product is Soap free, Oil Free, Paraben Free and Non-comedogenic. It also doesn’t contain plastic microbeads in case you’re curious.

I love the smooth, soft and not dried out feeling and not to mention how amazing it exfoliates and cleanses my skin. A new product that’s gentle to the skin, smells awesome and from a trusted drugstore brand you can trust.

Anyways, if hydration is the key to healthy-looking skin for you, then you definitely need to run to your nearest drugstore and get one now.

Rimmel Insta Flawless BB Cream
Walmart

Moving on is the Rimmel  #Insta Flawless Perfecting, Radiant Skin Tint and it’s their new #Insta Flawless collection line at least to me. I’ve the shade Light Medium 6 which is awesome. This is great if you don’t want something too much coverage.

The formula also contains SPF 15 and is available in two shades, Light/Medium and Medium/Dark.

I like the shiny beige tube packaging with the bold pink lettering since it stands out to me the most.

Rimmel Insta Flawless swatch

This can be used alone or under foundation, I used this on it’s own and applied it just like a foundation, with a beauty blender because of it’s tinted formula. I would say the consistency is very much of a bb cream texture. It also smell pleasant too.

I used this all over my face and it just blend I can see that it immediately brightened up my skin and it gives me a lot of radiant actually as well. The coverage is light and it hasn’t gotten rid of any imperfections that I’ve on my face like some uneven skin tone. But as far as light basis I actually really like this. The creamy texture feels comfortable and lightweight on skin. The shade light medium matches my skin tone perfectly. My first impression is this product gives a sheer to light coverage and I would consider this more of a tinted moisturizer than a primer because of the coverage it gave. Since the coverage is sheer it would probably match a number of skin tones even with limited color choice.

At the end of the day, my thoughts is that I’m loving the glow, smell and longevity on the whole. It’s worth checking out if you’re looking for a skin tint that moisturizing and gives a natural but glowy finishing look. I recommend you try this!

L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Matte
Walmart

Last but not least is the L’Oreal Color Riche Matte Lip Liner in Matte Stermind. The name might sound a little cheesy but the product is amazing. I feel in love with this lip liner the very moment I did color swatch as shown here and upon applying it on my lips. It’s so good, so creamy and so full color.

The tip is an old fashion skinny pencil sharpener lip liner. But the fact that it goes on easily and I can fill my entire lips with it, I’m happy.

Color Riche Matte Lipliner

It goes on velvety smooth and I love how opaque it looks on lips. It doesn’t tug or pull and it’s matte.  This creamy matte lip liner is available in the range from nudes to bolds. I’ll be going back to pick a few brighter shades for the coming holidays. Don’t wait, this is a great product you don’t want to miss.

Have you tried any of this product? If yes which one and let me know what you think in the comment.

I hope this was helpful for you guys. Thank you so much for taking your time to read. I really appreciate it. Bye guys!

Neutrogena Back To School Supplies

 

Back To School for most people is all about shopping for school supplies but don’t forget to shop for your skin care products while you there. Imagine all the stress and anxiety of going to high school. So exciting and nerve breaking too am I right! Having said that, with high stress, the uninvited guest usually pops out of nowhere. That’s right, I’m talking about acne.

Neutrogena skincare products

It seems that Neutrogena is killing it with their Back To School Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne product lines. I’ve high hope on all these product samples I received from the PR company. Huge shout out to the team!

rapid clear cleanser

Do you ever have a feeling of deja vu? Drugstore skincare products are starting to feel like this to me. I love talking skincare with you guys in my blog. Since summer will be over soon I thought of sharing some products that will make your back to school easy peasy.

These works amazingly well. I typically don’t get pimples but when I do I use this to help get rid of them:

NEUTROGENA® Rapid Clear® Stubborn Acne® Cleanser

A cleanser that works to remove dry and uneven patches. With only a few wash I started to notice some of my uneven skin disappears. The formula work well with my skin and I’m so glad it did. If you’re a combo to dry skin type with moderate acne problem then you’re going to find this product helps. Worth checking it out.

rapid clear leave on mask

NEUTROGENA® RAPID CLEAR®STUBBORN ACNE DAILY LEAVE-ON MASK

I like to wear this every once a week in the morning especially when I know I’ll be indoors most of the day. You just wet your hands and then apply the product all over the face. Once it dries up, you get a smooth and powdery finish feel to it.

rapid clear spot gel

NEUTROGENA® RAPID CLEAR®STUBBORN ACNE SPOT GEL

My skin has been good these past months and since I don’t have any breakouts or pimples I’m not able to test out this spot gel to its fullest accuracy. But if you’re on the lookout for something that has benzoyl peroxide than look no further.

Neutrogena claims this product helps clear breakouts with maximum strength and reduce the signs of stubborn breakouts. It’s required that you wash your hands every time before applying products to sensitive skins. Keep your hands away from pimples for your skins sake. Use spot gel instead. Neutrogena is a drugstore brand I trust.

acne correct and cover neutrogena

NEUTROGENA® OIL FREE ACNE CORRECT & COVER PINK GRAPEFRUIT MOISTURIZER

I can’t stress enough my obsession for BB cream or tinted moisturizer and when I saw this in the pr box I was elated with the prospect of trying these bad boys out. Love the lighweight formula and coverage. It makes my skin looks more even and it feels really nice having this moisturizer on. At $8.97 a tube you can’t go wrong with that!

neutrogena bb cream

Available in 2 shades. Fair to Light and Medium to Tan. Can’t find your perfect shade, you can mix and match to your desirable skin color. This line is great for sensitive or acne prone skin types, I recommend you look in your local drugstore.

As usual, let me know what you think. Which product will you likely pick for yourself or your loved ones? I’d love to know in the comments.

Thank you guys for always reading, please comment and subscribe. I hope you guys enjoyed hearing my opinion and seeing how these products works for me. I’ve some exciting things coming up, some fun stuff that I’ve been working on and I cant’ wait to show it to you. So, I’ll talk to you guys again a later post.

I hope you come to check on my social media down below. Make sure you are following me on Twitter and Instagram (@heysharonoox) for the latest update. In the meantime come and say hi!

Summer Skincare Must-Haves|AVEENO & NEUTROGENA

 

Hey everyone! So we’re smacked up to the beginning of summer. It’s about 80 degrees where I am right now. So, I thought it would be probably a good idea to have a little chat about sunscreen today. I’m going to show you some of the sample products I just received in the mail from Aveeno and Neutrogena.

Aveeno Summer Must Haves
*Press Samples

I’m a very firm believer that the best sunscreen for you or you could possibly use is the one that you would actually be using. The one that you’ll apply and reapply as much as needed. I love to wear sunscreen with high SPF pretty much everyday in the summer. Yes, I tend to get burn to crisps quite easily, so let just say sunscreen is my life saver.

So many products are out this year, so  many great products actually. I’m super excited because I’m having so much fun doing this review. This year both Brands are introducing their must-haves new mineral sunscreens.

Aveeno Mineral Sunscreen

AVEENO Sensitive Skin SPF 50 – It claims that – this new and improved mineral sunscreens are formulated with naturally sourced 100% zinc oxide and active natural oat to combine effective broad-spectrum UVA sun protection with skin soothing benefits.

I can’t leave home without sunscreen especially when I go for a vacation. So, I’ve been wearing it religiously during our trip to Ottawa and have been loving it. I also shared it with my family members and appreciate how it helps protect our skin from being baked by the UV light. A sunscreen that has a nice and natural soothing scents which reminds me of the beach. I really like the smell even though it reads on the bottle as fragrance free. Honestly, I was intrigued by the non-greasy mineral sunscreen formula. This product isn’t greasy at all and the best thing is that it doesn’t irritate skin. The only cons I can think of is that it leaves a white cast on my dad’s darker skin, but I haven’t found a physical sunblock that doesn’t. If you have dry and sensitive skin then Get yours here!

Baby Sunscreen Aveeno

Next new product is the AVEENO Baby Sunscreen SPF 50 – I’m very happy to have this sunscreen for my 2nd grader. He spent his summer outdoor very much everyday and this is a must-haves for him to wear it whether for soccer or swimming in the pool. I love all Aveeno’s products so I wouldn’t hesitate giving this to him. It’s a brand I trust. Get this for your baby.

Aveeno Cleanser

This is one of my favorite Positively Radiant Cleanser, it leaves my skin feels so soft and completely clean. This is a win. I love the formula, I love the way it smells so natural and slightly medicinal. Available in drugstores.

Daily moisturizer

For younger, oilier skins this lotion alone should be plenty for all day moisture and protection while leaving your skin hydrated. For a daily moisturizer that works, this might be just the ticket for you, too.

60 second facial shower .jpg

Aveeno Positively Radiant 60 Second In-Shower Facial –  is a gentle treatment you leave on for just one minute in the shower and because of the steam, it helps to exfoliate and brighten your skin. I noticed tiny micro beads that’s great for exfoliating death skin. If you’re someone who love multi-tasking when in the shower, this In-Shower facial won’t let you down. Find it here! 

Overnight Hydrating Facial Moisturizer

AVEENO Positively Radiant Overnight Hydrating Facial is a deeply hydrating moisturizer that you apply at night. It actually reminds me of the Laniege Sleeping Mask which I’ve been reaching for lately. The formula feels very lightweight on skin and it smells so amazing. I’m also amazed at how quick the product absorbs into my skin leaving skin hydrated and smooth. Smells like a walk through the enchanted forest. Another good thing about this product is that it’s oil free and leaves a soft glow on skin

I think this would make a perfect moisturizer for warm summer night. It’s not super hydrating as other night cream I’ve tried during winter months but this just hit the mark. It’s your summer must haves product if you’ve normal to combination skin typed. Your skin is going to thank you for it. You got to try it. 

Makeup Remover Wipes Aveeno

AVEENO Make-Up Removing Wipes – this product contains Total Soy Complex that not only help even out skin tone and texture but visibly transform dull, uneven skin into brighter, more radiant looking skin. I have tried this wipes over the last few days and I’m satisfied by how well it removes my eye and face makeup. This wipes feels a little thicker than other drugstore brands I’ve tried in a good way. I really appreciate its durability. A wipe that cleans and remove all the dirt and makeup with ease. If you haven’t tried this – here’s the link.

Sheer Zinc SPF50

Another two new and improved mineral sunscreens this summer are from NEUTROGENA and it’s their Sheer Zinc Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 and Face Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 which I’ll talk about next.

Mineral Sunscreen has increasingly gain its popularity over the past years and was lucky enough to receive package containing a top-up of some of my most-loved Aveeno and Neutrogena products. So I thought I’d put together a post combining these two brands and to tell you a little bit more about some of my favorite skincare items from the collection in case you were interested in trying any out.

If you’re into mineral sunscreen then you just have to try this Neutrogena Mineral Sunscreen with SPF 50.  Then your quest for mineral sunscreens ends right here. 

It claims – this gentle formula delivers superior broad spectrum protection against burning UVB and ageing UVA rays – with 2x better UVA protection than the leading mineral sunscreen. It’s mild even on sensitive skin, and it’s free of fragrance, parabens, phthalates, dyes, and irritating chemicals.

With summer officially here, sunscreen with high SPF UVA protection is a must-haves in my household. I love to know what’s your must-haves skincare products this summer?

Sheer Zinc Facial

Next is the NEUTROGENA Sheer Zinc Face Mineral Sunscreen with SPF 50 – it’s of 100% zinc oxide UVA. A new revolutionary product that helps prevent sunburn. I like how easy it applies and doesn’t leave any white globs and disappeared into skin rather quickly. I appreciate a good consistency product which is neither overly liquidy nor thick. This mineral sunscreen is on my check list. Try it out for yourself! 

Body Stick Sunscreen

I’m very excited to be testing out the Ultra Sheer Facial and Body Stick Sunscreen by Neutrogena. This is my first time seeing sunscreen in a stick format. My first thought was a deodorant but a sunscreen with SPF 50+ in a stick – this I’m intrigued to try. Love the amazing scents and I like that it glides on like a dream. No mess on application and so convenient to use. A travel friendly packaging that’s leak proof and the best part is that you can just throw it in your purse. This mineral-based stick sunscreen won’t clog pores, and it helps to prevent signs of aging while protecting your skin. Waterproof and lightweight, for a full face and body UVA protection, try this mineral sunscreen the next time you’re out and about.

I’ve already posted it in my Instagram because I love it so much. I’m very much into skincare right now. Aveeno is hands down one of my favorite drugstore brand.

If you’re new to the brand definitely make sure you try some of the products that I’ve mentioned. Let me know what you think and if you love Aveeno and Neutrogena as much as I do!

So, thanks for stopping and read. I also like to thank Aveeno and Neutrogena for this great opportunity to collaboration.  And until next time, I’m wishing a Great Skin Health! Bye!!!

Aveeno & Neutrogena PR BOX Unboxing – My First Youtube Video EVER

 

What’s up you guys! Welcome back to my blog! This week is a very exciting week for me. I was contacted by a PR company before Mother’s Day if I want to receive samples to honor mothers from Aveeno. I immediately said yes, (a) because I’m a fan girl of Aveeno, (b) since my mom is coming to visit me in two weeks, I wanted to share these goodies with her. With Aveeno and Neutrogena, everyday is Mother’s Day!

So, last week I got these sample products in the mail for an exchange of my honest review. Part of my job as a beauty blogger is to test out as much as possible so I can share my reviews with you guys.

Aveeno Skin Products

If you are a long time reader you know that I’m a fan girl of Aveeno. I’m also a huge advocate for taking care of your skin, it’s the largest part in our body and the one everyone sees! You only get one, take care of it!

I wanted to do something really special to honor my mom this Mother’s Day beside sharing products with her. So I uploaded my very first YouTube video ever. It’s my first video and definitely not my last!

First of all let’s talk about what I got in this box unboxing. Let me show you what’s inside the current drop…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Up close picture of my favorite products side by side.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Lotion is certainly having a moment isn’t it? It’s everywhere you look and what a revelation too; a moisturizing lotion that’s skin friendly, affordable and effective. What more could you ask for?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Body Wash. I rave about this all the time but truly it’s one of the best moisturizing body wash. It smells so amazing! It’s formulated with ACTIVE NATURALS® Colloidal Oatmeal to moisturize for 24 hours, leaving skin feeling soft and smooth. They claim to provide and lock in moisture for softer, smoother more comfortable skin long after you shower. And it’s soap free and even gentle enough for sensitive skin. I love Aveeno’s Body Wash crazy lot and let me tell you this, you got to try it. Period.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I know that my mom prefers a lightweight formula when it comes to body care and this AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Sheer Hydration Lotion will be perfect for her. This hydrating, ultra sheer lotion absorbs in seconds, for a fresh, powder like feel she’ll want to use all year round. This product is voted by Canadian Living Consumers to be the Best New Product of 2016. 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

NEUTROGENA® All-in-One Make-Up Removing Cleansing Wipes. I know facial wipes aren’t for everyone but I do like to stash a pack in my handbag for any make-up emergency or when travelling. Otherwise, regardless of how tired I may be, I will always opt for a “real” cleanser kinda gal. My real gripe with make-up wipes is how they leave my skin feeling after use – even if it is just one use. If ever there was a facial cleansing cloth to pack for a festival, or those just-in-case moments it’s the Neutrogena  Make-Up Removing Cleansing Wipes. 

My mom wears makeup and since we’ll be travelling quite a bit when she’s here visiting, I know this wipes is going to be handy.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

NEUTROGENA® Facial Cleansing Bar Original and Dry Unscented. Soap. Truly how often do you purchase soap and no I’m not talking about the anti-bacterial liquid hand soap you purchase with your weekly grocery shop, rather I’m indeed referring to the solid bars that perhaps now seem a little lost in time. It claims this bar is pure and provides a gentle cleansing for clean, clear, healthy-looking skin.

I never use soap to wash my face but I like to venture and try new things that I haven’t tried before. Frankly I’m nervous but I’m going to put this to its test and give an update in an upcoming post.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

NEUTROGENA® NORWEGIAN FORMULA® Fragrance Free Hand Cream. This is my favorite hand cream, it’s highly concentrated skin care formula instantly leaves dry hands noticeably softer and smoother after just one application. It smells nothing at all. This product is fragrance free.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I only use a small amount of products on my hands as shown below, just a little goes a long way.  You can see a noticeable difference in softness and smoothness on your hands after application. Your hands will feel very hydrated and will thank you for it. I’ve tried it and I’m convinced. What are you waiting for? GO!

So, that’s it for today’s post and I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. I just can’t wait to see my mom’s reaction trying out some of the products that I’ll be sharing with her. Shout out to Aveeno for making this possible.

Which products are you most interested in? Would you pick any of these items up? What should I try out next? Love to hear your thoughts!

 Thank you so much for stopping by to read. If you did enjoy this post definitely follow my blog. I hope you come to check on my social media down below. Make sure you are following me on Twitter and Instagram (@heysharonoox) for the latest update. In the meantime come and say hi!

Neutrogena – 3 Steps to Beautiful Clean and Fresh Skin

 

Hey friend!

As Christmas came and went, I’m in process of dishing out all the gifts I received and one of them is none other than this Neutrogena Skin care products. I believed it’s from Target selling for $14.99 for the holidays.

Let’s see what’s inside :

This Neutrogena skin care products comes in a gift set.

3 skin care

They comes in a full size each bearing a net wt: Daily Cleanser 354 ml/ Eye Makeup Remover 162 ml/ Moisture Sensitive Skin 120 ml

daily cleanser Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser ($8.99 sold individual)

I wanted to start to talk about their daily cleanser. It claims that it’s hypoallergenic, paraben free. won’t clog pores, soap-free and dye free. I tried using this product cleaning my face this morning and first of all, I wanted to say that it’s smells nice. Product comes out easily by pressing the pump applicator. Formula is of liquid gel color and it foams up well. I find that it’s also easy to wash and rinsed out. Leaving skin smelling fresh and clean.

eye makeup remver Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover ($6.99 sold individual)

I’ve tried using Neutrogena makeup remover in the tissue format and I’m excited to try this from a bottle. It claims to even remove waterproof mascara and has aloe and cucumber extracts that soothe the skin. We heard that cucumber has the property of getting rid of puffy eyes and cooling purposes. So, this is brilliant to incorporate aloe and cucumber in this product.

moisturizer Oil Free Sensitive Skin Moisturize ($9.99 individual)

Due to the dry weather my skin simply dries up very quickly. I have been slapping moisturizer almost around the clock and this Neutrogena moisturize hydrater. Believe me, that’s what I needed most now. First of all, it’s not greasy, lightweight and i’s a water -based lotion which absorbs quickly and won’t clog pores.

I have been using other moisturizers for example No. 7, Lancome and The Body Shop brands but since I’m using it a lot these days, I thought it would be more economical if I changed to Neutrogena for now. The price is $9.99 compared to the No 7 which is more than double the price.

Available at Target, Ulta, Walmart and other drugstores. No doubt the quality is not the best but will still do since I need to be slapping lots of moisturizer on face and hand particularly.

I’m happy to receive this gift set that will keep my skin happy through the winter. Sometimes, it’s not about the price but it’s the thought that counts.

Would I repurchased these skin care products in the future. I definitely will repurchase the daily cleanser and makeup remover and would recommend it to all my closed family and friends.

Have you tried any Neutrogena skin care products? If yes, which one is your fave?

Thank you for reading.

Neutrogena Skin care

Hey friends!

Yesterday, as I was cleaning my bathroom cupboard, I found a package of this Neutrogena skincare products. It must have been hiding behind the cupboard among my other toiletries. Oh my, I was surprised and happy at the same time. They came in a sample size packaging. Since, I’m doing skin care today, I throw in this Mary Kay hand cream as well. I don’t recall where I got these products from but it must be from free samples which I subscribed many moons ago.

neutrogena products

Honestly, I haven’t tried any of Neutrogena’s brand before and I’m excited to try and leave my thoughts and opinion on these good looking skincare 🙂

neutrogena haul

  1. Mary Kay Satin hands (net wt: 0.72 oz)
  2. Neutrogena Beach Defense with SPF 60 (net wt: 29 ml) 
  3. Neutrogena Ultra Gentle daily cleanser (net wt: 14 ml)
  4. Neutrogena Healthy Defense daily moisturizer (net wt: 7 ml)
  5. Neutrogena All-in-One Make-up Removing cleansing wipes (7 wipes)

mary kay satin hands beach defence

This brand is something you might have heard about. It’s the Mary Kay Satin hands cream seems like a dupe of my Lancome Nutrix Royal Body cream in terms of the packaging. It’s fragrance free and it’s light on skin. I’ve never tried this brand before and will check it out more.

Next is the Beach Defense which comes in a full bottle of 198 ml. It provides superior skin protection from harsh summer elements, further more it’s clinically proven to help defend the signs of sun damage. Good news is that it’s also waterproof. So, hip-hip hurray!!!

ultra gentle healthy defence

Oh my gosh! This ultra gentle daily cleanser smells wonderful. I love the sweet scents of it. The color formula is transparent. It says that this effective yet gentle formula removes excess oil, dirt and even makeup while protecting skin’s natural moisture barrier to leave it feeling soft—never too dry, never too tight. Regular size in 12 fl oz selling for $8.99 at Neutrogena 

Beside it is the Healthy Defense daily moisturizer which is smooth and moist when I tried it on my hand. Faint scents of beautiful fragrant soap. This exclusive hydrating antioxidant blend with pure vitamin E helps prevent the visible signs of aging. On top of that, it is lightweight and non-greasy. It absorbs quickly and keeps sin hydrated all day. Comes in a 50 ml regular size tube. So high five to that!!

makeup wipes

Neutrogena Makeup Wipes (7 counts) $1.99 – helps to remove even the stubborn traces of dirt, oil and makeup especially the waterproof mascara. It cleans and leaves skin fresh in just one easy step effectively. I usually use liquid and butter makeup remover but never on this brand for makeup wipes. But I will definitely try them since I also read many good reviews on this brand.

hair care free sample garnier

Okay, these two are random samples which I got from picking  some beauty products. Anyways, they’re a Garnier brand. So, what I have here are these Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser and Garnier Fructis Triple Nourishing Oils in Avocado, Olive and Almond. There are 3 packets in pack. Frankly, I’m not a hair fashion person and so therefore I cannot speak much about them. I will for sure to give them a try and see how it works on me. If you need a review on this, please comment below.

Have you tried any of these products before?

Thanks for reading.
