Moisturizers -Neutrogena -Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream

This is a decent size jar but a little pricey for drugstore IMO.
The good news is you do not need to use very much and I really suggest you do not go overboard because it is pretty potent and can cause irritation. I use about the size of a large pea. It does not spread that far but I concentrate on areas I need it most and spread it out. It sinks in rather quickly and I did not feel greasy just lightly moisturized. That being said it is NOT a heavy duty moisturizer it is more of a treatment night cream so you will need to moisturize after to prevent the dryness and flakiness you can get from using retinol products. For my oily skin, I apply an eye cream/oil/ceramide cream to my eye area first and to the edges of my mouth then apply this cream in order to prevent it from irritating those areas. Because I have oily skin, I can use this all over without moisturizing every night and only top it off with a cream like CeraVe on occasion. However, I do usually apply a very small amount over the top to be on the safe side or sometimes I will add one single drop of bio-oil but you could add a drop of your favorite oil if you have one that works well with your skin.
I just starting using this cream but I can honestly say my skin looks a lot smoother! Has it erased fine lines and wrinkles? No, but I am pretty impressed with the changes in my skin so far. I will update as I continue to use.
I have only been applying at night, 2-3 nights consecutively and then taking a night off.
I only carry it up to my undereye area ONCE during that time and only very lightly.
I say this because the second night of use my undereye was a little red, dry, and irritated the next morning for a day or two and looked terrible.
The rest of my skin's texture is looking improved already and my blemishes, although, not gone were smoother and less angry looking as well. My skin tone does, in fact, look evener.
I am looking forward to seeing what else it can do.

Side note:
It is not fragrance-free and does have a weird floral type scent that I could do without as it is not very pleasant. Thank goodness it does dissipate after a while.
It says you can use it night and day but I would start off using it one or the other, personally I would use only at night because retinol can make your skin more susceptible to sun damage. I have tried it during the day when I stayed home and it wore fine under my makeup using only a light layer.
It is a little on the pricier side $24-26 and I have even seen it for $29 at some local stores.
I only gave in and purchased it because Target had a $4 off coupon.

Lotions/ Creams -Neutrogena -Norwegian Formula Hand Cream

A good handcream—my mom's go-to handcream. I like it, but I don't love it. I don't care for the smell (which is neutral, but very 'creamy'), and I don't like the texture (it might just be me, but whenever I apply it I feel as though it really drags over my skin). It's a bit greasy at first, too. Overall, Neutrogena Hand Cream is a very good product if you're only concerned with product effect and product price; as a drugstore product, it's very affordable, and as a hand cream, it moisturizes very well (many, many hours). My mother, a skiing enthusiast, recommends this one for the slopes and winter!


Hair Treatments -Neutrogena -T/Gel

I have mild to moderate dandruff and this product works well to control it without drying my hair. In fact, I really love the way my hair feels after using it - soft, clean, shiny, which is great because other brands I've tried have been way to drying. The only drawback is that it smells terrible. Using a nice smelling conditioner afterwards helps a little with the smell, but not completely. However, I also only need to use it about once a week. So I am a little torn on this product. It works well for me so I want to like it, but smelling like mothballs is a tradeoff I'm not sure I'm willing to accept.

Cleansers -Neutrogena -All-In-One Makeup Removing Cleansing Wipes

on 10/1/2017 8:41:00 PM

Neutrogena all-in-one cleansing wipes are my 5th favorite wipes. All-in-One Make-Up Removing Cleansing Wipes are soft, pre-moistened wipes, infused with a mild cleansing lotion. Definitely not only gently and but also effectively cleanse and remove all types of make-up but also tone skin, leaving it refreshed in just one convenient step. Makes your skin feeling soft and healthy-looking. The larger cleansing surface provides a better and more complete cleansing experience, without leaving pore-clogging residue. Suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin. Love these wipes as a back up to my other 3 favorites. See my other reviews. Thanks for reading!

Eye Makeup Remover -Neutrogena -Make-Up Remover Cleansing Towelettes Night Calming

on 10/1/2017 8:35:00 PM

I LOVE these for night time use because i like the calming lavender scent. I use the normal deep clean wipes or other wipes to get the intense daily makeup off first. Then after a full cleanse of wash, tone, and water, I use this wipe for a fresh pick me up wipe before I put on my serum and moisturizer. Overall, I'm impressed with the makeup removing if I don't use a regular wipe & cleansing power of these. I also really like the slight oil left behind after using these because other wipes felt like they dried out my face. These aren't greasy in my opinion, just moisturizing. I have noticed that my face has been far more soft & smooth since I started using these. Thanks for reading!

Moisturizers -Neutrogena -Combination Skin Moisture Oil Free

on 9/30/2017 11:13:00 AM

foto

This oil free moisturizer meant for combination skin comes in a 118mL pump. Purchased at Wal-Mart in Canada for on sale for 5.99. Claims to " normalize combination skin by moisturizing dry areas while removing shine in oily areas for softer, smoother skin".

I found this moisturizer was light yet had a bit of a waxy feel on the skin. It has no scent and spreads well on the face. It stung my face when applying right after washing with a cream cleanser and doesn't do much for my sometimes dry skin. However, I did find it reduced the oilyness around my t zone and cheeks and does smooth the skin. Due to the waxy feel I just don't reach for it that often. If you have oily skin that is not sensitive this may work for you .

Treatments (Face) -Neutrogena -Rapid Clear Daily Leave-On Mask

on 9/30/2017 10:57:00 AM

This is a 2.5% benzoyl peroxide gel. It's very affordable at 9.99 at Walmart (Canada) for 56mL and is the only leave on product I could find in store.

Took about 2 weeks to start clearing my acne, was a little flaky at first but want away when I found a good moisturizer. It is normal for BP to cause flakiness and dryness. Has a gel texture and is white, dries fast and doesn't have a scent. A little goes a long way. Each tube last me a few months. I used it twice a day for the first few months and now I use it once every couple days, once a day around the times I use to breakout. Have not had a single deep pimple on my face since It started working, been using it about 18 months. I use it on dry skin after cleansing with a cream cleanser and then when it dries I layer a moisturizer over top. I find it actually reduces my pores and oil and helps my makeup last longer!

Lips -Neutrogena -MoistureSmooth Color Stick

on 9/28/2017 12:35:00 PM

I tried the Deep Plum (180) version of this product and am pretty happy with it. I like the crayon design and noted that it hasn't melted in my purse. The color is quite deep and lasts for a few hours, which is very good for something that feels more like lip balm than a drier lip stick. Unfortunately, unlike lip balms there is no SPF rating so I layer it over SPF-rated lip balm. I'm not thrilled with the strong, sweet fragrance which smells like a combination of grape and mango to my nose. So it's not my HG lip color, but I'd buy it again while trying out similar products by other brands.


Foundations -Neutrogena -Healthy Skin Anti-Aging Perfector

Been searching high and low for a foundation that doesn't break me out or irritate my skin. I'm 50+ but have oily acne prone skin still. Roscea too. Been loving this and bought a second tube. First, the packaging--convenient. Doesn't explode during plane trips, hygienic (no dipping dirty fingers or sponges into a jar), easy to throw in your purse or bag (not glass). Second, the feel. Not heavy, but gives good coverage. Not matte, but not shiny. Evens skin tone, but you can layer if need be. Third, sunscreen. I typically use a separate sunscreen every day no matter the season, but sunscreens were clogging my pores and irritating my skin no matter whether natural or chemical. Having sunscreen in the foundation is a plus and no issues. I use shade #20 and it blends beautifully. Not orange, doesn't turn. Fourth, you can buy at Walmart, drugstore, etc. I've spent a lot of money on high-end foundations, but this is a better product and a lot less expensive $8 - $12 depending on where you shop.

Foundations -Neutrogena -Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint

This stuff is great, but it does have some cons.
First, the pros: This is totally natural looking and makes your skin look great. I have dry skin with some fine lines and most make up makes me too matte and looks really artificial. It is seriously the best makeup I have ever purchased, and I've purchased A LOT. I've worn it daily for two weeks and no breakouts. It won't make you look greasy, but just looks like clean, even skin. If I want more converage on a rogue spot that has shown up, it works great under concealer. I Absolutely love it!
The cons:
The biggest con for me (and I took a lippy away because of it) is the packaging. It has a wand attached to the top that will undoubtedly waste product and would be a breeding ground for bacteria! I put the makeup on the back of my clean hand and use a beauty blender to apply it to my face. The other con is that if you have a good amount of discoloration or acne, this won't be a good product for you. It is lightly buildable and it does even out my skin, but for someone with more tempestuous skin, this ain't gonna cut it.

TL:DR Awesome for people with decent complexion, looks natural. Packaging sucks but I still love it.

Cleansers -Neutrogena -Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel

What the? My skin is sooo oily in the summer, and that is when I tried it. But this left my skin feeling dehydrated as could be. It was so weird. It was as if my skin felt moisturized but dehydrated. How can that be? It also kind of burned. And I started to get flaking around my nostrils and around my mouth. The fragrance is really strong. Day by day, my face felt tighter, and started to sting. I gave up.

The serum is nice, though.

BIG NO!

I gave up using this product after 4 days of applying. I wanted to like it, cause I have been using the gel-cream version of this moisturizer for over a year and everything was fine, so I thought I should have no problem switching to the gel version, despite all the added fragance, color and silicone. However, it gave me red bumps all over my face, just when my skin nearly recovered from the previous breakout. Horrible. I guess it is the dimethicone which clogged up my pores...not sure if any other ingredient can be blamed except for this one.

Anyway, please, always do a patch test before applying anything full-face!

Used once and my face and hands burn and itch. If you're acne prone, find a Lush store and buy Let The Good Times Roll, which is facial scrub. That is the best skin care product I've ever bought, but I was trying to save some money, so I bought this instead. Never again!
