Skincare - Face -Neutrogena -Hydro Boost Hydrating Serum

postives - it looks pretty in its its little blue bottle with a pump and the pretty little white spheres floating in the pretty clear or blue gel.

Having a pump is good.

I didn't have any negative reactions to it.

and that's all i've got to say that's positive about it.

negatives - well it didnt really do anything. Its a gel. You apply it to your face. It dries. It does nothing.

I was hoping for a hylauronic acid product to moisturise my skin. Eh. It felt moist until it dried down. It really did nothing for my skin.

The is twice the price of the Ordinary HA serum and has none of the punch of the TO product.

I was really unimpressed with this product. It was just pretty packaging, The serum of the house where the lights are on but no one is at home. save your money

Broke me out badly, I hadn’t got pimples this bad in years. Felt more like a silicon based primer that gives your skin that synthetic silk texture than a healthy moisturizer that plumps your skin, which is what I was looking for. Never buying again going to use the rest of the product on my hands and arms.

Way over fragranced. Very disappointed. Was looking to replace my Lue hydrating serum which is not fragranced and does not contain silicone.
This neutrogena aerum has good reviws on other sites. Should have looked here too.
Waste of $20. The Lue is $15 for 1 oz, so i didnt even save money. Grrrr.

I usually like neutrogena , but this one leaves me unimpressed..it didn't do much for my skin, and after a month of use, I was glad to use something more moisturizing...it goes on light enough, and I like the spf...I might revisit it in summer, but in our dry and harsh Canadian winters, this wasn't enough..but my skin is on the dry side....just ok for me I admit


Foundations -Neutrogena -Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint

I have horrible combination skin . I have very dry skin , sometimes more dry than oily as well as Very VERY oily skin not just in the average t-zone but everywhere especially my nose area going onto the cheek area. My skin is also acne-prone and yes , i do have huge pores and redness on my cheek/nose area . I've tried several foundations from Fit me foundation (matte) to estee lauters double wear foundation (the dewy kinda finish one) . And i can tell you NONE OF THE FOUNDATIONS THAT HAVE EVER BEEN ON MY FACE were my holy grail . However, my face tends to become very oily and cakey through the day . I've been choosing this foundation over any of my brand named ones such as my estee lauter one. Only because i like a very natural but full coverage look , but a matte finish . And this foundation is not matte finish . This foundation definitely not full coverage i would call this a light covered foundation or even a tinted moisturizer. I don't mind the application of it because the way it applies on my face matters most to me . This does not leave my face NEARLY AS cakey as any other foundation i've worn . But it does depend on if the products u are using are water based or oil based and this is a water based foundation . So are all the liq. products i use with any water based foundation. But i HATE that this foundation leaves my face SUCH AN OILY MESS. Yet the cakeness isn't as bad as i'd think it should be with this amount of oil . right now i prefer this over any of my other foundations and i have the estee lauter double wear foundation (both matte finish and the regular one) and the lancôme tient med to full coverage found. I use very little product wile using this hydro boost found , because of the oil and me avoiding any cake on my face . I choose between the estee lauter double wear ( not matte ) and the hydro boost because i NEED something that won't show my pores , won't make me OILY AF , won't cake up , and won't seperate on the face . haven't found the perfect one yet .


Mascara -Neutrogena -Hydro Boost

on 4/9/2018 10:54:00 AM

Very well done. Wet mascara. Does not smear.
Stretches your lashes well
Cone shape applicator
Wand does not bend
Lots of soft bristles around cone
Not expensive
Package says plumping mascara- it does make them look thicker
Package says with Hyaluronic acid. I'm not allergic to this ingredient and I am not an expert to say what it would do on continued use to improve condition of lashes
Like it a lot. Thanks Neutrogena

Toners -Neutrogena -Rapid Clear 2-in-1 Fight & Fade Toner

on 4/8/2018 8:51:00 PM

I would rate this product a 3.5 / 5.

I used this toner for around 3 weeks and had to stop for the sake of my skin. I think the combinations of salicylic acid and the AHA in this toner was just too strong for my skin. It would burn, my skin felt dry and tight, and I experienced some flaking around my mouth. I will have to use it even more sparingly or mix it with a milder hydrating toner so that I can finish it up.

I did experience noticeable results on my forehead and the discoloration / spots from acne on my cheeks have improved.I haven’t had breakouts on my forehead which is a problem area for me so I do feel that it does a good job at clearing out my pores.

I think this product works, but if a friend were to ask me for advice concerning spots I wouldn’t be able to recommend this without stressing how harsh this product is, and how important it will be to protect the skin after using it. This is in no way a gentle or sensitive skin friendly product.

I've used these for years (ever since I first stared to wear makeup). These are by far the best makeup remover I've used and I have repurchased these countless times!

I have break outs sometimes and I figured this product would help reduce it, but no it made my whole face break out so bad!! I will not recommend it at all if you want to reduce your break outs! This made so much deep big acne on my face I did not even want to go anywhere! And I'm almost 30! Made me feel like I was in middle school again with so much acne...😐😣😭😞😳😠

I felt like the formula was really patchy, and the light to neutral shade that I purchased had an almost orange tint.


Lipstick -Neutrogena -Moisture Smooth Color Stick

foto

I tried this in Pink Nude as the color is similar to other lipsticks that are flattering on me. This was the most disappointing drugstore lipstick in a long time. The texture is weird, kind of just sits on your lips and will find every crack if they are dry. I didn't find this to be moisturizing at all. The worst part for me was the smell/taste. It reminded me of the "play makeup" you might've tried as a kid, cheap and tastes like chemicals. Revlon and Rimmel crayons seem to have better color payoff and wearability.

Moisturizers -Neutrogena -Healthy Skin Face Lotion SPF 15

on 4/2/2018 2:06:00 PM

I broke out horribly from this from which I am still recovering. I know this was the culprit because I only change 1 thing at a time in my skincare routine. I applied more of this to my mouth area as that area tends to be more dry for me and that is where I broke out the most. I am acne prone though and most things will break me out. But I thought this wouldn't especially since it says it is non-comodogenic. I guess the glycolic acid in it was just too irritating for my skin and my skin would burn slightly after applying this especially my eye area and start watering. I guess this maybe ok for someone with non sensitive and non acne prone skin though.

Cleansers -Neutrogena -Ultra Light Cleansing Oil

I pretty much never write reviews after only using a product one time, but this stuff blew my mind. I used to love Neutrogena's lotion makeup remover, but now it burns my eyes and face, and I've been looking for an oil cleanser for a few months anyway. I grabbed this kind of spontaneously when I saw it a couple nights ago, and I remembered hearing that it was pretty good from someone with similar skin issues (I have sensitive, fair, mostly normal but breakout prone skin).

Unless this suddenly starts causing issues later, I think this might be a new HG product for me. It removed my makeup better than my regular cleanser (I've been using the Garnier gentle sulfate-free one for a few months and like it a lot), better than Clinique's TTDO balm, my diy oil removal methods (I've tried olive, coconut, almond, argan, and I think one other I'm forgetting, sometimes alone, sometimes mixed), micellar waters, and basically every other cleanser/makeup remover I've ever used. It seriously impressed me. I took a cotton pad with witch hazel all over my face after using this, because there's usually at least a tiny bit of residue that I missed or that my cleanser didn't get off, but the pad came away still white after using this cleanser. I don't think I've ever had that experience before, so a big thumbs up for this cleanser.

I love how light this felt, and how easily it came off when I rinsed my face. I never felt any tugging on my skin while I was rubbing this in, it didn't irritate my eyes at all, and my skin looked and felt better after rinsing than it has in quite a while. I have a small breakout I'm dealing with right now, and sometimes products with oil can cause a second flare up, but so far, so good.

When I was using it for my eye makeup, I did lose a couple of lashes, but I don't think it had anything to do with this product. I was just half asleep and rushing to get my makeup off so I could go to bed, and I used a bit more force than I should have around my eyes (and I didn't let it sit on my lashes long enough to start breaking down the mascara like I usually do).

This has a tiny bit of a scent, but it's not strong and hasn't irritated my skin yet. Usually if a product is going to cause irritation, it does it the first time I use it, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it doesn't randomly cause irritation with later uses.

The only con I can think of right now is the price, which isn't really that bad, and I don't mind paying a bit more for skincare products that work for me. I can't remember exactly how much this was, but it was a little under $10 I think. The bottle is small-ish (4oz of product) and I didn't know how much it would take to clean my whole face. Now that I've used it, I think a single pump will probably work most of the time, so it should last a while longer than I originally thought it might.

Pros:
-Gentle
-No strong fragrance
-Removed all of my makeup
-Rinsed away easily
-Didn't clog my pores and cause a breakout
-Will probably last a while
-Easy to find at drugstores, Ulta, etc.
-Didn't make my face feel tight/stripped of moisture (my skin felt SO soft after using this, it was unreal)
-More effective than any other oil product I've ever used, as well as other makeup removers

Cons:
-Definitely needs to sit on lashes for a couple of minutes before wiping away mascara
-Fragrance was probably unnecessary (but it wasn't very strong and didn't irritate my skin)

If I develop any issues later, I'll come back and update this review, but for now, I'm in love with this stuff. I don't know how well it would work for waterproof mascaras, though, because I don't use them (they dry out my lashes too much and make them fall out, ugh).

Cleansers -Neutrogena -Healthy Skin Boosters Facial Cleanser

on 3/31/2018 10:32:00 PM

This inexpensive and delicious-smelling cleanser made my skin noticeably softer after ONE USE. So soft in fact, I've been walking around making people touch my cheeks all week while exclaiming, "Feel how sooooooft!!!" So about a month ago I was looking for something new to use as my morning facial cleanser; I'd just about finished my Peter Thomas Roth anti-aging gel cleanser and realized that I didn't really like it. I wanted something mild but effective, with a pleasant scent (I like something scented in the morning - it makes having to take a stupid shower at the crack of dawn a little less terrible lol). And I wanted something that wouldn't erase the softening effects of my various night treatments, which is what the PTR cleanser seemed to do. I looked through dozens of choices and stumbled across this one on a blog post. I'm not sure why I didn't consider Neutrogena to begin with since their Fresh Foaming Facial Cleanser was my HG for years - I only stopped using it when I stopped wearing makeup to bed and realized I didn't need as much cleansing power in the morning. And I know - who wears makeup to bed?? What was my problem??? But now I'm on the path of enlightened skincare and I realized that the only thing missing was a great morning cleanser. I ordered a bottle of this one and literally the first morning I used it I noticed a difference in the texture of my skin. And it's gotten better every morning since. My skin is softer, clearer, and my large pores are much less noticeable. This is a major HG and I hope it makes it to Top Picks so it can get on the radar of anyone looking for their Forever Cleanser ;)

I never write reviews but, for this product i think i should. i purchased it on sale and was very excited. so excited i bought multiple products from their line. i already had the cleanser which i liked a lot. i purchased the gel cream, serum, eye cream and gel mask. i started using it all on a Saturday night except for the mask which i was keeping for a specail day. i woke up Wednesday morning with red marks under my eyes that were burning withing a couple hours my entire face was red and felt like sand paper. i stopped using the products. The next morning i woke up and it was worse my entire face looked like i got a really bad sunburn. i contacted Neutrogena through their instagram about what happened and they gave me a number to call. when i spoke to them they only wanted to know about the serum. Later that day my face was getting worse and a blister appeared on my nose. i went to a clinic and they said that basically the product had remove 1-2 layers of skin. i am now on anti-inflammatories and was told to watch for infections. On monday i will call Neutrogena back and let them know what the doctor said. all this being said i have used HA before and have never had an issue like this.
