I was never was one for properly taking care of my face or skin. I was the girl who went to bed with my makeup on, thinking I would forever have clear and beautiful skin. I didn’t think about the damage we do to our skin each and every day. Now that I’m in my 40’s things have changed.
Taking care of my skin is a must and I’m very serious about the products I use and the purpose they serve in helping me to look and feel younger. I mean let’s face it. Who wants to look older? Not me. So here are eight of my latest favorite products from NEUTROGENA® to help mom look and feel her best all year round.
#1. NEUTROGENA® DEEP CLEAN® Purifying Clay Cleanser/Mask
Formulated with a natural blend of Kaolin and Bentonite clays to absorb oil and impurities deep below our skin tissue. This 2 in 1 cleanser is great and can be used as a daily purifying cleanser or a leave-on mask for deeper penetration. NEUTROGENA® DEEP CLEAN® Purifying Clay Cleanser/Mask helps with breakouts, unclogging pores without leaving an oily residue behind.
#2. NEUTROGENA® DEEP CLEAN® Purifying Cooling Gel Scrub
I’m not normally a fan of scrubs and those tiny little beads within them. However, that being said, the NEUTROGENA® DEEP CLEAN® Purifying Cooling Gel Scrub is an important part of my morning routine. I love the cooling effect it has as it unclogs my pores from trapped dirt and that make-up I told you I don’t remove from the night before. It helps to prevent breakouts while preserving my skin’s natural moisture, and gently exfoliates, leaving my skin soft and smooth for the day ahead.
#3. NEUTROGENA® DEEP CLEAN® Purifying Micellar Cleansing Water
For those of you like me that maybe don’t have enough time to do a deep cleanse in the morning and are on the go, this product has saved my life. One-step use, this micellar water is a gentle cleanser that requires (no rinsing) oh yeah–baby! You heard me right. Just wash and go!
Powered by Triple Micellar Technology, the water purifies the skin removing the toughest and ickiest parts we don’t need like make-up and dirt but leaves behind all the good stuff to keep your skin healthy. Dry patches began clearing up right away after using this and my face became extra soft.
The best part is Neutrogena Micellar Cleansing Water is also fragrance-free and alcohol-free, and even removes waterproof mascara!
#4. NEUTROGENA® DEEP CLEAN® Purifying Micellar Cleansing Wipes
These are by far my favorite and I’ll tell you why. Are you ever out somewhere and your face just feels dirty? Maybe you’ve been working in the garden or you’re at the park playing with the kids, and your skin just doesn’t feel refreshed. That’s where these micellar cleansing wipes come in handy.
I carry these in my purse on days I’m not wearing make-up (though they are great for removing make-up) and use them to cleanse my face and brighten it up, making it feel refreshed and clean. I love that you can use these over your eyes, lips, neck and face, and the best part is they don’t leave a residue behind like many other facial wipes and there’s no need to rinse.
#5. NEUTROGENA® Hydro Boost Multivitamin Booster
As women, it’s important to keep our skin moisturized. I always think my skin is soft but then dry patches appear. This multivitamin booster from NEUTROGENA® contains Purified Hyaluronic Acid, which is naturally found in skin and acts like a sponge, absorbing up to 1,000 times its weight in water. It also contains Vitamin E and, combined with the Purified Hyaluronic Acid, helps energize and revitalize the look of dull, tired skin. You can wear it as a moisturizer or a primer under your makeup for the day.
#6. NEUTROGENA® Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen SPF 50
I have a gf that wears sunscreen as a primer beneath her make-up. I used to think that was strange until I realized the damage the sun can do to our skin and how important it is to protect our skin from its harmful rays.
The NEUTROGENA® Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen is great because it not only is waterproof up to 80 minutes but the water gel light-weight formula layers under make-up without a greasy finish. So yeah, my GF is smart to use it as a primer to help protect her skin.
#7. Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Spot Treatment
Imagine 2 minutes to take away acne before it begins. That’s what the Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Spot Treatment with built-in light therapy does The product uses red and blue lights to gently filter through the skin, which has been scientifically shown to target acne-causing bacteria and reduce the appearance of breakouts. Lightweight and portable, you can carry it in your purse and it’s been authorized by Health Canada. Bye-bye blemishes!
#8. NEUTROGENA® Rapid Wrinkle Repair® Regenerating Cream
No woman likes talking about getting wrinkles, but unfortunately, it’s a fact of life. A few around the eyes, some creasing the sides of your lips, and being in my 40’s I’ve used many creams that help reduce the signs of wrinkles by tightening the skin affected areas, but none that combat dryness at the same time, which is why I love the NEUTROGENA® Rapid Wrinkle Repair® Regenerating Cream because it helps reduce the look of wrinkles up to 5x more than the leading wrinkle serum while still providing both day and night protection with its added moisture technology.
Brand Message: Neutrogena knows our skin is linked to an outward portrayal of beauty, and that skin issues take a toll on our confidence, especially as we age. As a Brand, it is important its consumers can deal with their own skin concerns, from acne to dryness to wrinkles, and they continue to provide products to address those needs. So, no matter what you get for mom, make her a gift basket of products to help her look and feel her very best all year long!
