Foundations -Neutrogena -Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint

I haven't regularly worn foundation in years.. like many years. I was one of those who tried lots of foundations when I was a bit younger and found them all cakey and they always accentuated my pores (before formulations got much better over the years, apparently). I'm 36 now and my skin is getting dryer and I have some sun damage spots and broken capillaries that I've been wanting to even out.. so I decided to give some new foundations a go. More recently, I tried the Missha M Signature Real Complete BB Cream that I hated. Even with a beauty blender it turned out super cakey, grey undertone to the shade that looks sickly & weird, and made my pores look huge. A friend recommended the Neutrogena Hydro Boost to me because she's been using it and said it's good for people who hate all the things I hated about the Missha BB cream. The Hydro Boost isn't actually a foundation, but a tint, so I decided to try it.

I guess I lucked out because after wearing it for about a week I'm really liking it. It feels soft and velvety on my skin. It feels like it sinks directly in, like a moisturizer, and doesn't sit on top of my skin and leave a greasy or foundationy residue. You'd think this would mean it provides no coverage at all. It provides a level of coverage I'm happy with, but might not work for people who want strong coverage. It is definitely not full coverage, which is a good thing for me - I can still see freckles through it for some context. It provides a nice smooth evening out of my skin tone. Key word- smooth. It evens out my redness and a friend said my skin looked really clear and soft. It does provide some of that soft focus smoothing that people are coveting. My face looks really silky and *feels* smooth with it on. No flaky patches. I have medium skin with warm undertones and got the Nude color, which is a good shade match for me right now (might be a little too dark in the winter, but I'll see).

I took off a lippie because of the packaging. The applicator is kind of annoying at first, but maybe I'll get used to it. I'm used to using a blender sponge. This has a doe-foot applicator and it feels a little awkward just patting the applicator all over my skin and then rubbing it in. The applicator doesn't soak up much product at a time, so you have to keep re-dipping to cover the whole face. The opening of the bottle is small and the consistency isn't conducive to pouring the product out. I used the applicator and put some product on a damp blender sponge to blend it in and the coverage gets a little too light with that. When using my fingers to rub it in, it goes on more effectively with the right amount of coverage. I guess that's the ideal way to use this product then, and I'll have to get used to it. Probably not too big of a deal because I like how it looks on me so much, but if you're huge on packaging it might be really annoying for you.

Self Tanners -Neutrogena -MicroMist Tanning (Medium 2 shades darker)

I’m reviewing #3, which is three shades darker, but I don’t think it needs a separate heading.

I like this, and would probably repurchase for the ease of use. I have a hard time getting tanners to show up much on my NC40/C4 skin. I use them to basically even and darken a bit. For this one, I use it like a spray tan. I coat the bottom and sides of feet, elbows and knees with a thin coat of Vaseline and spray, including my face. Alternatively, I can spray it on a makeup brush and buff it on my face, tops of feet and tops of hands. The color is noticeable and a nice, warm brown. It lasts several days and fades evenly. After a few minutes I can use my regular body moisturizer and be done with the whole thing. I suppose it has the self tanner smell, but it’s fainter than most.

Blush -Neutrogena -Healthy Skin Blends Sheer Highlighting Blush

foto

I have "Sunkissed 30", which is actually the bronzer from this line. I am on my 3rd pan of this bronzer, it's been one of my favorites by far. I love that it's matte, so it's great for contouring. The undertone is warm, but not overly warm so it does not look orange, even when I'm pale (NC20ish), but shows up nicely when I'm lightly tanned (NC25-30). I just swirl my brush in all four of the colors, since they are all similar anyway. The formula applies smoothly, and the color lasts all day. I will repurchase!

I don't understand??? It actually gave me dry eyes and worsen my fine lines. Ever since using it, my eyes looks like I've aged 10 times more. My eyes look like have deep cavern lines. Neutrogena can you please tell me why this is causing me distress?

Very disappointed

Moisturizers -Neutrogena -Hydro Boost Water Gel

Not sure what all the negative reviews are about here! For reference, the one I am reviewing is the one for "extra dry skin" that is fragrance free. I have combination acne-prone skin with some dry patches. I also hate the feeling of heavy or greasy moisturizers. When my skin was more oily, I loved the Clinique DDMG. This is my daily morning moisturizer and I love it so much. It doesn't break me out or clog my pores, it sinks in immediately, doesn't irritate my skin and is just all around awesome. I took off one lippy because it really isn't the most moisturizing, but it does the job. I would recommend this product to someone looking for a light moisturizer with combination or normal to oily skin.
