Neutrogena sent me two products from their Naturals eco-friendly line. I’ve been trying the Neutrogena Naturals Brightening Moisturizer ($14.99) and the Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser ($7.50) for almost 2 weeks now. I have dry skin and do not like harsh products or very fragrant lotions. To be honest, I do not like trying out new beauty products for the fear of breakouts or making my skin worse (check the site, you won’t very many!) When I saw the benefits of the Naturals line, I was a bit more open to trying them. The moisturizer is 94% naturally derived, there are no harsh chemical sulfates, parabens, petrolatum, dyes, or phthalates.
Of the two, the moisturizer is my favorite. Besides the great scent of lemon, it contains Inca inchi oil that works with the skin to help restore the skin’s natural moisture barrier and has anti‐inflammatory properties, I think this has helped with fewer breakouts. The Peruvian Tara Seed also helps to boost moisture levels, just what I need! After just the two weeks of using the lotion in the mornings, I can tell the difference in my skin. It gives it the right amount of moisture, with no dry skin! My face has a healthy… I don’t want to say glow, but it does seem brighter and healthier!
5 Ways to Brighten Your Beauty Routine
1 – Less is More – ditch the bold black eyeliner for a softer thinner stick, maybe in a shade of brown. I recently discovered a Skinny eyeliner and love it!
2 – Scrub a Dub-Dub – use a daily scrub to wash away the dead skin on your face, I am partial to sugar scrubs! I use it on my face every day and it does not dry my skin out. I have actual pinned several sugar scrub recipes that you could make at home for an eco-friendly version. That way you know what is in it!
3 – Go Lightweight – find facial products with fewer chemicals and harsh ingredients. Putting products ON your body is just as important as what you put IN your body.
4- Go Neutral – opt for neutral eyeshadow, go with a foundation only on the spots that need it and not all over your face, swap out your lipstick with a chapstick with a tint instead.
5 – Try the Neutrogena Naturals Brightening Moisturizer made with skin-brightening lemon peel to help even skin tone in just 4 weeks.
With just a few small changes, you can make a Brighter Difference. Not only will your skin start looking healthier, you will feel better too. Plus selecting products that are eco-friendly is an added bonus!
