Going natural is everywhere. From organic instant pudding to the hair transitioning movement, natural is the new black. I carry around an earth-friendly tote every day and when I forget it, I have been known to walk out of stores with my purchase in hand. Awkward! Plus, I'm really into natural hair and skin products. Segue time...
I received a canvas (of course) tote bag filled with Neutrogena Naturals (made from post-consumer recycled plastic) and other green goodies; I took it as a sign to give it a go. So, I went.
Here are my thoughts:
Purifying Facial Cleanser
Normally, I save clear cleansers for the summer because they don't tend to deliver the moisture my normal-to-dry skin requires. This sulfate-free cleanser successfully removed my makeup and left my skin feeling clean, but not stripped of its oil. It not only includes vitamins B, C & E, but it also has naturally derived, detoxifying salicylic acid and beta hydroxy acid.
Two words: Balanced cleanser
Purifying Pore Scrub
I have whiteheads. Go ahead and judge me. As a result, I'm constantly looking for the "miracle product" that will make them go away and keep self-extraction at bay. See what I did there? Anywhoo, this 94% naturally derived scrub detoxifies pores and it has a really great consistency. It's not grainy like other scrubs.
Two words: Smooth operator
Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Moisturizer
A lightweight-but-effective moisturizer, this is a go-to product for me. I like that my skin feels hydrated, but not like an oil slick. Plus, my skin absorbs it super fast! It's chock full of bionutrients, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory goodness.
Two words: Moisture booster
Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Night Cream
We've all heard it. At night, our skin does its thing: heals, repairs, regenerates (is that starfish specific?).
Enriched with Inca Inchi Oil (it has the highest concentration of omega fatty acids) and Yerba Mate (Brazilian green tea), also known as "tea of life", this cream enhances skin's defense against dullness, leaving it glow-y.
Two words: Night Nurturer
In short, I'm in love with this collection (especially because I'm not a fan of perfume-laden products). I'm pretty sure I'm allergic to certain perfumes so it's probably for the best that I keep them off of my grill piece when possible.
All of the Neutrogena Naturals products I used had a barely there scent
My arrogant whiteheads were A LOT less oppressive and my skin felt amazing.
Score for team natural!
