NeutrogenaSPFHydroGel

When I moved to Florida when I was 14… I did what every teenager and tourist does when they arrive. Go to the beach…. was I worried about sunscreen? Nope. Guess what happened? I got sun poisoning and it was the worst I ever felt. Blisters, hot & cold flashes, shirts rubbing on my skin hurt, air on my skin hurt. Ever since then I make sure I always have SPF , even when I moved back to CT, and definitely make it a point now that I’m back in Florida.

So now I can enjoy any activity, any time and any day.  I love going to the beach & pool and  walk a lot through out the week.  I want to make sure my skin is protected so SPF is a necessity for me.

  • UVA Rays: lead to premature aging & wrinkles
  • UVA Rays: Burn the superficial layers of the skin. Also a key role in the development of cancer.

Final Thoughts:

Huge fan of this sunscreen. You know when you put some sunscreens on and after you skin feels dried out? Not with this, my skin felt so soft and hydrating it left my skin. I also like that it had a pleasant scent , not like that ‘normal’ sunscreen scent. It also didn’t leave and residue or white marks on my bathing suit or clothing. So whether Im directly in the sun or just running errands I can put this on without worrying on how I smell or if it will leave marks.  It also absorbed quickly into my skin without leaving it feel greasy or tacky.

Neutrogena Mask Collection – It’s in the Gel

I worked with Neutrogena to bring you this post.

Neutrogena hydrogel masks

I ‘m so happy with the products Neutrogena has been coming out with lately.  They sent me 2 hydrogel masks & an overnight gell mask.

Neutrogena is the only brand that offers 100% hydrogel face masks made of seaweed extract that perfectly contour to your skin to seal in a bottle’s worth of serum. Innovative technology from South Korea fuses powerful skin nutrients in a translucent mask to instantly feed your skin and lock in moisture. Skin instantly transforms from tired and dull to supple and glowing in one simple step. Just pick a mask for your skin mood – hydration, purification or radiance – apply, relax and easily remove.

Radiance Boost Brightening 100% Hydrogel Mask: Boosts skin’s radiance and smooth skin’s texture. This innovative hydrogel face mask with vitamin B3 leaves your skin looking luminous, evenly toned, and radiant.

Neutrogena Radiance Boost

I really liked this mask. I like hydro gel masks because they contour to the face better. I was surprised to see that the mask came in two parts , a top & bottom. I left the mask on for 30 minutes while I began (binge) watching season 2 of 13 reasons why.  I was a little confused because it had flaps on the eyes & mouth. So I flipped the one on the mouth over my lips hydrate my lips too.  Once I took the mask of my face felt so soft , smooth, & looked dewy & healthy. Which is why I can see why they named this radiance boost.  When I applied make up on top it looked flawless & stayed that way throughout.

Hydro Boost Hydrating 100% Hydrogel Mask: This moisturizing face mask with hyaluronic acid instantly quenches dry skin and contours to your skin for optimal absorption, leaving it supple and hydrated.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost

 

My skin has felt a little dry, I think its from a new facial wash I tried. This mask is what my skin needed. My skin felt soft, supple, and looked healthy. This mask came in 2 parts as well so its easy to contour to the face.I did have an issue at first having it stay put when I first applied. I just took some of the essence in the packet and tapped all over my face. I then applied the mask and it stayed put for the 30 minutes I had it on. I took it off and my skin looked healthy & refreshed. My makeup went on top nicely and my skin looked great all day.

Hydro Boost Hydrating Overnight Gel Mask: Wake up to hydrated, supple skin. This moisturizing overnight face mask with hyaluronic acid wraps skin in a deep gel cream while you sleep for smooth, soft skin.

NeutrogenaOvernightGelMask

This was easy to spread over my face. I woke up and the mask dried but it didn’t even feel like anything was on my skin. Then I looked in the mirror and looked a bit crazy lol It was peeling in some spots on my face. I jump in the shower and washed it off with warm water. My skin felt plump, soft, smooth…and of course hydrated. My skin felt great all day and looked healthy all day too.  This would be great when your skin needs a little hydration boost.

Happy I was able to try these products from Neutrogena. The best part is they are easily accessible since you can find them at Ulta, Target, Walmart, CVS, ect. They are also good for travelling since they are small in size.  Whether you have a special even or just want healthy looking skin these are a great addition to add to your skincare routine.

Use anytime for an immediate polished look! Intended to be used as a pair. Both products are also great when used as part of a comprehensive skin care regimen.

The key ingredient is Proteolytic Enzyme – Papain from Green Unripened Papaya. I’ve heard papaya is a wonderful & natural exfoliant for the skin.  This duo can also be used on all skin types.

Clean Zyme Skin Zyme

My thoughts: 

This duo is good for acne & anti-aging. The process is easy and isn’t messy.  The cleanser smells really good and it the scent is familiar, I just can’t put my finger on it. I even had my mom smell it and we were trying to figure it out.  I was surprised that both items were green! After taking off the cleanser, I applied the Skin Zyme . Make sure you use the Clean Zyme to help take off the Skin Zyme. It helps loosen it up & makes it easier to come off.  I like that even though it was on 15 minutes, it wasn’t hard or stiff. My skin wasn’t red and I didn’t feel any irritation while using this duo. I did enjoy the cool refreshing feeling when washing it off.   After using the duo , my skin felt clean, soft, plump, and healthy looking. I have had some blemishes pop up and while using this noticed that they have gone away quicker.   Make sure to follow me on Instagram ( ThatThriftyChick) where I post updates & mini reviews.

Skin Zyme

How to use:

Clean Zyme should be applied in place of regular cleanser and left on 1 to 2 minutes. Remove with a clean, wet and wrung out washcloth using lukewarm water. Blot dry.

Apply Skin Zyme in a thin even layer over entire face (and neck, if desired) and allow to remain for up to 20 minutes. To remove Skin Zyme, apply a small amount of Clean Zyme to face and massage very gently to achieve emulsification. Remove with a washcloth and splash face 10 to 15 times with lukewarm water. Blot dry and follow with usual Skin Care Management products and/or moisturizer.

My thoughts:

I like to use hair products a little bit more before giving an opinion. On top of that I just cut off 10 inches of hair! So I’m getting used to my hair and my hair is sort doing its own thing lol  So here is a quick take on my experience so far.

The shampoo & conditioner left my hair smelling good . I could tell that it did help my waves stay intact.

The texture spray I think is good for when you want to do a style and your hair is too ‘clean’ . I think this product would help hold a style more and help curls stay … if you have problems with that. It was ok but not my favorite texture spray I’ve tried ( so far anyway) . I could feel the product in my hair and didn’t like that feeling.

Dry Shampoo Hask

I enjoyed the citrus scent, it was a nice pick me up at any time of day I used it. It wasn’t strong and smelled refreshing.  There was no residue left on my dark brown hair which sometimes can be an issue with dry shampoo. If there was, it easily absorbed and mixed into my hair. It last all day and really didn’t need to apply during the day.

It absorbed the oil quickly and my hair looked great. I could go another day or 2..maybe 3 without washing my hair. Which was perfect for when I drove from CT to FL recently.  Also with sweating here in FL ( I forgot how hot & humid it is all the time) I need a little help. My scalp gets oily but if I was my thick long locks often my scalp get oily quicker and my hair doesn’t look as healthy or bouncy.  This definitely shot up in my top 3 for dry shampoos.  I also like that I can find it at Ulta make sure to check other places that you have seen Hask being sold at as well.

Make sure to follow Hask on
Instagram to stay up to date with the brand.

Also how cute/ funny is this tote bag Hask sent me?
