It’s no secret that I love Neutrogena products, especially their skincare. So when I found out about the Neutrogena Naturals line, I had to try it out. I typically use the foaming cleanser to take off my makeup but I will admit that it is a tad bit drying, so I can’t use it daily. After I read that the Naturals line is 94% natural with a plant and fruit based, I thought for sure it would be gentle on my skin.
Let me tell you, I fell in love with the cleanser and the moisturizer the first time I used it. First off, I love the way both products smell. The moisturizer smells so yummy. To me, it smells like a mixture of banana and papaya. I could be off but that’s what I get when I smell the product. The fragrance of the products in this line is not overpowering, so if you have allergies like me, you won’t find yourself with itchy eyes or sneezing.
I’ve tried the Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser with every tool that I have FOREO, brush cleanser, kojac sponge, and a washcloth. Any way that I’ve used it works perfectly. It is a foaming cleanser and that makes me extremely happy. Maybe I’m a little odd, but I don’t like creamy cleansers. I don’t know why. I think maybe I feel the suds get down in my pores a little better than a creamy cleanser. Who knows!
Okay, here is a funny tidbit. Neutrogena has gone so natural with the line that even the website is eco-friendly. The site is hosted on Green Server that is sun-fueled and wind-powered. Oh! The product packaging is made 100% from recycled paper. That is so cool to me!
Anywho, I have been able to use the cleanser daily, so it looks like my other Neutrogena cleansers have been replaced with this one. I have not had any dry patches and my skin doesn’t feel dry or stripped after using the cleanser for an extended period.
The makeup wipes have the same scent as the cleanser. I haven’t been wearing a ton of makeup lately due to my accident with my nose. Long story! Don’t ask! The wipes did work to remove my bb cream but my only wish is they were a little moister. The wipes are a tad drier than I usually like my wipes and I’m not sure how they would perform of I needed to remove a full face of makeup.
I have to say that I’m seriously loving the moisturizer. When I do my nighttime routine, I normally end with facial oil, but with the Neutrogena Naturals Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Moisturizer, I don’t have to add any additional products. I can seriously just moisturize and go. I do have to say that a little of the moisturizer goes a long way. Seriously, a pea-sized amount is enough and that’s with me having a fat face. LOL!
The moisturizer is a little bit heavier than other daytime moisturizers, so I would recommend using the tiniest amount. I personally can’t apply the moisturizer to my nose. I’ve noticed that if I do, it will cause cystic acne on my nose. So, I’m just sure to avoid my nose and all is well. It is perfect for nighttime use and when you wake up in the am, you still look and feel moisturized with a natural glow.
Overall, I’m happy with the products and the Neutrogena Naturals cleanser and moisturizer did not disappoint. I would buy both again and that’s saying a lot. Seriously, the cleanser is my new boo!
