When it comes to skincare, I love trying out new products for my combination skin type. Every season I try to switch up my skincare routine too as my skin can be unpredictable sometimes. So finding the right products that does not irritate my skin is essential. Mostly what I look in the products is the hydration as without it my skin gets super dry and the make up wont stay either. I have used lots of high end skincare products and this time I decided to look for something at the chemist’s skincare. After the long winter my skin became really dull, so it is time to freshen up this spring!
I had my eyes on the Neutrogena products for a while as I have read some great reviews about them so I decided to give it a try and make a special skincare routine with one brand to see how everything would blend in and take care of my skin. So let’s get into the actual routine:
- Every morning and evening, I wash my face with the Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Face Wash. Apart from smelling great, this product gently washes the skin and does not try it out while deep cleaning it properly. Especially if you have some breakouts deep clean face washes can leave your skin very dry, but this one refreshes the whole areas of the skin and leaves pleasant feeling.
- Hydrating my skin with Intensive Skin Hydrating Serum is a favourite part in my skincare routine. After washing and drying my face I use this to give my skin some real boost and a a proper dose of hydration. This serum provides necessary energy and restores the natural glow of your skin. Hyaluronic acid gives it fantastic hydrating effects and keeps your skin hydrated for up to 24 hours. It also helps smooth out fine lines. You don’t really have to add the moisturiser after using this boost, but I still go onto next step to extremely hydrate my face. Day after day using this, I feel like my skin has more energy and does not look dull anymore. I only use the serum in the mornings.
- The next thing after Serum, I use the moisturiser. After removing all that dirt and oil from your skin, its time to infuse it with moisture to keep it fresh and prevent dryness. I personally like the Hydro Boost Moisturizing Facial Cream (for dry skin). Brand provides moisturisers for all skin types and it is really easy to choose once you know what type of skin you have. It is also clinically proven to hydrate the skin for 24 hours. I love this part as it really keeps my skin smooth and soft for a long time. It has a gel consistency thats why my skin absorbs it very quickly. I use this twice a day. In the mornings after serum and in the evenings after washing my face. Hydro Boost contains hyaluronic acid which helps the skin to retain its moisture. It isOil-free and suitable for sensitive skin too. I love the refreshing feeling it gives you after applying the product.
Apart from this three main steps, I also use some other Neutrogena products as part of my skincare routine depending if I am using make up on that day or not. For example, once a week I like to use the Neutrogena Hydro Boost FaceIntensive Hydrogel Mask, which I usually leave on my face for around 20 minutes and it makes my skin super soft to the touch. As for the make up removal, I like to use the Hydro Boost® FaceMicellar Water 3 in 1. As you know, if you wear make-up on a daily basis, you should never, ever sleep with it still on your face. This micellar water removes even most stubborn make up from my face and deeply cleans the pores.
All that being said, I think I found one of my favourite brands which did not irritate my skin and did what I really wanted it to do – hydrate and wake up my skin. All the Neutrogena products were super affordable and I can not wait to try more products from the brand. I love that they do their job, smell great and do exactly what they claim they can to your skin, especially if you are a busy mom and you don’t have hours to spend for yourself, I think you will love these products too!
