Skincare Goes Green with Neutrogena Naturals

Neutrogena has come out with a line known as Neutrogena Naturals. If you take a look at the site, you will notice that the whole line is filled with pure naturally derived ingredients that are clean and free from harmfulness. It’s quite neat. There are no harmful chemicals, sulfates, parabens, petrochemicals, dyes, and phthalates. The line provides ecologically friendly bionutrients to help cleanse and nourish our skin. Best of all, no animal testing means no rabbits were harmed in the process.

Starting off with the Fresh Cleansing+ Makeup Remover, it is a gentle yet refreshing makeup remover. The main ingredient is the Peruvian Tara seed from South America. Aside from the Peruvian Tara seed, the cleanser holds Vitamin C, B, and complex sugars. What it does is boost moisture levels and prevent dehydration. It also strengthens the skin’s moisture barrier. When I gave this a whirl, I found that I got rid of makeup quicker than what I had thought. There wasn’t any stinging scents or any skin irritations.

Next, I want to talk about the Purifying Facial Cleanser. I am big on facial cleansers. I love the clean feeling after washing my face. Some cleansers are sticky while some are just squeaky clean. Neutrogena cleanser is quite well done. It stuck right out at me after a wash. I find that my pores are a lot cleaner while chances of breaking out are much decreased. Willowbark is enclosed in this cleanser. This ingredient not only penetrates deep into the pores to cleanse it also is easily rinsed off.

Just like the Facial Cleanser, the Purifying Pore Scrub also has Willowbark. Expanding on the greatness of Willowbark, also includes it being used centuries by Greek, Chinese, and Egyptian civilizations. This scrub is like any scrubber out there for deeper cleansing with the exception of all the natural products. The detoxifying factor in this scrubber cleanses exceptionally well where impurities and dull dead skin cells are out the door in no time. When I took this scrubber into the bath, I was quite astonished at how well it cleansed. It wasn’t hard as I’d expect but it smoothed away the skin beautifully.

During the day time, there are so many reasons why being well moisturized is so important especially something nourishing. That is why there is a Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Moisturizer where it replenishes what skin needs throughout the day.

Going through the night without a night cream is quite harsh. Some of the best creams are for night use. That is why the brand also has a Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Night Cream that is packed with vitamins B, C, E and anti-oxidant omega bionutrients. What the cream does is increasing our skin’s defense against dullness and roughness during we take our beauty sleep. What that’s it?! Not quite, in return we get a radiant and healthy looking skin. I started using this night cream a few nights ago, and I found the cream absorbs really well leaving the skin hydrated and feeling soft. Overnight into the next day, my skin is not only silky smooth but even softer! The formula is simply wonderful.

Nothing beats having a great Lip Balm during the windy spring, especially something that is natural. Soothing and smoothing as it feels, the lip balm keeps my lips hydrated and feeling great throughout the day. So no more chap lips!

Last but not least, we cannot forget about the Face & Body Bar! It is made of Avocado and Olive Oil which are so yummy! Well we cannot eat a bar of soap but it does make me hungry. Some of the soap bars I have used in the past tends to dry up the skin which might be a little toe excessive. This bar on the other hand is different where it cleanses and leaves your skin feeling nourished, so much better.

Aside from the Neutrogena Naturals set, the folks over at by Glam Media has sent over a bag full of eco-friendly goodies.  There are so many amazing stuff in the bag! Everything is eco-friendly! There is a reusable bag, Bobble water bottle, a set of Bamboo utensil, Yoga Fan instruction reference, Luffa Sponge, and some gourmet snacks. I started carrying my own grocery shopping bag about 3 years ago and my current one is about to wear out. So this bag comes really handy just in case mine quits. The Bobble bottle is also neat when you’re running errands or going to the gym. You can just fill it with tap water anywhere and enjoy the pure and natural water made by yourself. The Yoga Fan is such a great travel friendly and clever designed reference that opens up like a fan. The instructions are easy to follow with many break down poses. I’m totally hooked now. For the luffa sponge, it’s still something new to me. I use it as a body exfoliator and it’s more gentle than I thought. You can also use it to scrub pans and pots and many more, great stuff! Finally the Bamboo utensil set and the Simple Squares snack bars were taken by the hubs. For a food lover, both products make a sweet treat and I can see why.

After talking about all these natural stuff and greener things in life have got me thinking. To conserve gas and lessen smog / pollution, I decide to walk more as I could both save the air and have an excuse for exercise. It is better for my health and also great for the air around me. How about you? Are you ready to go green?

    How wonderful. The bobble and cooking set are great. I use my bobble all the time now. It’s also so much easier to use.

    Leaving the lights on in every room depletes so much electric. I see it from my neighbors all the time especially at night.

      I see it all the time too. It does waste a lot of energy.

    Smog is really bad especially for inhaling. I especially hate anything that is pollutant to air. I recently stopped leaving the water on constantly while brushing my teeth. I think it would save quite a bit of water.

    • admin May 11, 2012 at 4:44 AM

      That is true, the water can be conserved if we brush our teeth without leaving the water on.

    One of the best things that I thought about was hit the gym more often as oppose to shopping. It saves a lot of money. I am more fit now and live a healthier lifestyle.

      Save money and stay fit. I like it!
