Going green. There is no reason to stop being eco-friendly at the end of Earth Month. For the last two weeks, I’ve been trying out the Neutrogena Naturals line. Neutrogena has been my go-to acne-fighting cleanser in my past years, so it’s already a brand I trust. I was pretty excited to incorporate these new products into my beauty regiment.
Face & Body Bar I’m personally a bodywash type of girl, because bar soap usually leaves my skin dry-feeling after showering. I gave this a shot and pleasantly did not dry out as much as I had with regular soaps. I think the olive oil had something to do with it. Avocados are pretty nourishing as well. I didn’t try it on my face because I had the other two cleansers, but if you are ever on the road and need to pack light, this two-fer is a great have.
Lip Balm This is a great alternative to your everyday lip balm. Love the design of this thing!
Purifying Facial Cleanser This is a gentle face wash. There isn’t a lot of lather, as expected in any natural, sulfate-free product. I would recommend this for the mornings because you don’t want to strip your face from natural oils and it’s still a strong enough cleanse to prepare your face for the day’s makeup.
Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Moisturizer This is the lighter version of the night-cream. I tend to get oily throughout the day in my T-zone so I prefer lightweight moisturizers. My face felt incredibly fresh for most of the day.
Fresh Cleansing + Makeup Remover My favorite product! I was so impressed by its ability to remove the heaviest of my eye makeup. If you wear a makeup, or just a lot of eye liner like me, I would totally recommend this cleanser. It really packs a punch! Just as a reference, I wear waterproof gel liner almost daily. Must have!!
Purifying Pore Scrub I like to exfoliate at night right after I wash off the day’s face. The tiny scrubber beads are gentle enough for sensitive skin. It’s great to unclog pores and remove any makeup residue the cleanser may have missed before prepping your skin for sleep.
Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Night Cream FYI, this is much heavier than the day moisturizer, but it still doesn’t feel like it’s suffocating my face. The best part of this cream is its healing properties. It contains Vitamin E and anti-oxidants, which is great for blemishes and scars.
In general, all of the products left my face and skin feeling fresh. There isn’t any strong perfumes or scents. I feel like its a great natural option to keep in mind. Not only are you getting great products, but you are taking a step towards sustainability. 95% of the ingredients are naturally derived. The boxes it comes in are made of 100% recycled paper.
I like to think that small steps contribute to a larger whole. Getting a green product here or recycling there makes a difference.
