We’ve already told you about Neutrogena’s justifiably-hyped Light Therapy Anti-Acne Mask, which was named “Mass Launch of the Year” by Beauty Inc. Once a brand for teens and moms, Neutrogena is now finding a solid middle ground and elevating their offerings with the recent announcement of celebrity ambassador, Nicole Kidman.
The brand is now competitive with some of the more high-end offerings on the market, proving that solid experience, quality ingredients and simple products still go a long way.
Ready to check out the new Neutrogena? We’ve found five products that are sure to leave your skin feeling nourished and looking flawless.
1. Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream
Neutrogena’s latest addition to their rapidly growing anti-aging skincare line uses a combination of highly concentrated retinol, hyaluronic acid and glucose to help combat the look of fine lines, dull skin tone and dark spots.
Retinol SA contains the highest concentration of the over-the-counter retinoids available in the United States. The benefit of using this accelerated version of topical retinol, is in its sustained release. This means the benefits of retinol continue working on your skin long after you’ve applied the product. Hyaluronic acid and topical glucose are associated with boosting collagen production, helping to restore a plumped look to the skin, while also delivering intense and lasting moisture. This cream absorbs quickly into the pores, delivering instant results. This product is lightweight enough for daytime use or under makeup, without compromising effectiveness and lasting hydration.
2. Neutrogena Micro-Mist Airbrush Sunless Tanner
A sun-kissed tan looks fresh and sexy on just about anyone. Unfortunately, baking in the sun to achieve the bronze goddess look not only puts you at risk for accelerated wrinkle formation, but also increase your chances of developing skin cancer by up to 70%. While earlier generations of sunless tanning products were notorious for leaving you with an orange-tinged Oompa Loompa look, this lightweight spray formula lightly coats the skin in a thin layer, providing buildable color, customizable to your skin tone needs.
The added bonus of using this Neutrogena product over other self-tanning products on the market is that the Neutrogena tanning mist also provides flawless coverage to the body, concealing spider veins and other minor blemishes on the skin. The spray formula feels damp and silky when first applied, to allow for blending if necessary, but dries in a few moments, cementing the bronzed color to ensure the product won’t transfer onto clothing or furniture.
3. Visibly Clear 2-in-1 Wash Mask
This 2-in-1 has been a cult favorite in the U.K. beauty community for years. While not available in American drugstores, this double-duty facial cleanser and mask cream product is now available in the U.S. exclusively through Amazon.com. The mask trend spurred on by the Korean (K-Beauty) craze, has led facial masks to become a beauty product that many of us now consider a staple in our skincare routines. This practical product doubles as a skin cleanser used to remove makeup, dirt, and oil or applied to the skin dry used as a facial mask. The creamy clay formula adheres to your pores, extracting dirt and oil trapped in the skin that causes the appearance of enlarged pores, blackheads and textured skin tone.
4. Skin Clearing Makeup
Foundation is often the culprit of clogged pores, unexpected breakouts and irritated skin, regardless of whether the makeup is labelled as non-comedogenic or not. For oily and acne-prone skin types, this foundation will keep your shine at bay for hours, help clear existing blemishes and helping to prevent future breakouts. Containing acne-fighting salicylic acid, this foundation cuts through oil to ensure that your face remains grease-free all day long.
The formula gives your skin a semi-matte finish, without looking dry and chalky. The Skin Clearing Makeup is offered in tones ranging from medium to full, offering enough opacity to help conceal open breakouts, without feeling heavy and on the skin.
5. Neutrogena Hydro-Boost Gel-Cream
Neutrogena recently launched the newest addition to their growing skincare line. The Hydro-Boost collection includes a variety of water-based skin care products, enriched with hyaluronic acid and other nourishing ingredients. This gel-cream resembles the lightweight yet intensely hydrating formula found in Korean sleeping pack creams, which have made a big splash in the American beauty market in the past year.
BUY: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream, $15.19
This oil-free moisturizing product won’t clog pores or cause breakouts, but will deliver lasting and intense hydration to even extra-dry skin types. While this product dries quickly like a gel moisturizer, the hyaluronic acid and water based formula makes the hydration factor amplified, leaving the skin looking and feeling plump and moisturized for up to 24 hours.
