Get Deep Clean

16 Sep

After using Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleanser ($6 www.neutrogena.com) for a month in Africa and having ZERO breakouts, I now swear by it!  I have used a million and one cleansers and this one does the trick!  I use the cream cleanser when I am not using my Clarisonic and I use the foaming cleanser when I do.  I love to use a cleanser that gives my skin that tingly clean feeling when it is rinsed off and this does just this that!  It doesn’t irritate or dry out my sensitive skin but it does remove all my makeup and oil on my face.  When I was traveling in Africa it is very dusty and this removed all the dirt off my skin and I did not break out at all!  I am excited to try other products in the Deep Clean line and the best part is, you can find them at the drugstore!!

Soy Face Cleanser

16 Mar

I was interested in trying some skin care products with soy in them when I found the brand Fresh.  It is a great beauty line that is based around using natural ingredients for all of their products.  I have been using the Soy Face Cleanser ($15-$38 www.fresh.com) for the past couple months and can’t say enough great things about it!  The best thing is that it is gentle on the skin and removes all of your makeup, including eye makeup without leaving them burning after.  It does not have a strong scent and it is a gel so it goes on smooth.  I have recently started using it more since the weather has been making my skin dry and this has really helped save it.  It has nourishing amino acids and soy protein with calming and hydrating botanicals.  You don’t feel like you are putting anything strong on your skin or that you are stripping it of any of its natural nutrients.  I also like to use it with my Clarisonic, it is gentle and creates a nice lather.  This is a great product for anyone with sensitive skin or if you are looking for a gentle cleanser.  I also recommend this for anyone that is “green”, it is a natural product so it is great to add to your environmental friendly lifestyle.

Hand Cream For Winter Weather

29 Feb

 

I am always buying and trying out new hand creams.  I think I get bored and just want to try something new with a different scent and a new bottle or package…I think we all get that way with beauty products.  However, I have been using a hand cream this winter that has saved my hands from getting all dried out from the winter weather.  I have never found a hand cream that I loved as much as Nivea Smooth Indulgence Hand Cream ($5 www.drugstore.com).  This hand cream contains macadamia nut oil and vitamins which help add moisture and soften dry hands.  The smell is very “clean” and fresh.  The best part is that it absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave a greasy residue on your skin so you can use your cell phone, key board or do other things right after applying it.  I keep a bottle of this on my desk and use it after I wash my hands to keep them really soft.  I have turned other people in my office on to it because of the smell and because of the great price!  If you are looking for something to save your hands this winter, give this a try!

Natural Daily Scrub

27 Dec

 

I was really curious about the Neutrogena Naturals line when I started to see the commercials.  As you can tell from reading this blog my curiosity got the best of my and I decided to try the Neutrogena Naturals Pore Purifying Scrub  ($8 www.neutrogena.com).  What makes this a “natural” product?  Well, instead of having chemicals in the scrub to help cleanse the skin, it has natural plant ingredients.  This product contains willow bark, which is great for clearing the skin and fighting blemishes.  The Neutrogena website is a great place to read about their Natural product line, it provides a lot of information which will help you determine whether or not natural products are something you want to try.  I really like this product because it is gentle enough for daily use.  I use a small amount and when you put it on your skin it feels gentle but you feel “clean” and like it has done its job.   When I use a product, especially a scrub, I like my skin to have that “clean” feeling afterwards and that something is “working” while it is on my skin.  Some natural products don’t give me that feeling but when I use this product I get the feeling that it is doing its job!  If you are interested in using natural products I think this is a good line to try.  It is easy to access and very affordable.  Try one of the products first to get a feel for the line, if you enjoy it then invest in the others.  Good luck and cheers to natural beauty!
