Before we know it, it will be time to stock up on school supplies, outfit our children with a new wardrobe and prepare for the busy back to school season. And while pencils, notebooks and fall clothes are on every mom’s shopping list, they certainly aren’t the only back-to-school essentials! I remember when I was a teenager, HEALTHY ESSENTIALS™ for my medicine cabinet, such as a good face wash and moisturizer, were always a must to help me prepare for that first day of classes. After all, nobody wants to start the school year with acne!
Now, at 33, acne is still something that I battle every month, and after years of experience trying different products, I know firsthand that the more heavily medicated acne-fighting products will often make a breakout even worse by aggravating skin. So when I got the chance to review the new NEUTROGENA® NATURALS™ line as part of the Chatelaine Tasters & Testers program, I had to give it a try. These products are over 94% naturally sourced, effective even on acne-prone skin and still gentle enough to use every single day!
I tested out the NEUTROGENA® NATURALS™ Purify Facial Cleanser, Purifying Pore Scrub and Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Daily Moisturizer. I decided to use the facial cleanser in the morning and the pore scrub at night, following up with the moisturizer both times. And in just a few days, I was in love. The Purifying Facial Cleanser has a great fruity scent that reminds me off watermelon and foams up nicely on my skin. Yet when I rinse it off, my face still feels nourished instead of tight and dry. The Purifying Pore Scrub has, in my opinion, the perfect texture for an exfoliator. I am big on exfoliating, but finding a product that scrubs skin thoroughly without being too harsh is tricky. The new NEUTROGENA® NATURALS™ scrub does the job perfectly. [Read more…]
