I've been making a very conscious effort in 2016 to not only simplify my beauty and skin care routine, but my life in general. The Neutrogena Naturals product line has made simplifying my skin care not only easy, but natural.
From the contents of the products, to the packaging, and website, the Neutrogena Naturals collection strives to be natural wherever possible. The ingredients are free from dyes, phthalates, paragons, petrolatum, and harsh chemical sulfates, aka the line is 94% natural and leverages plant-derived ingredients to provide true skin benefits. To holistically enhance the proper function of healthy skin, bionutrients are also on the list, all extracted from natural ingredients.
As for the website, it's brought to you by a Green Server, a wind-powered and sun-fueled server that only uses renewable energy to keep it up and running. Totally self-sustainable and totally awesome.
Packaging is a huge factor for me, because who wants a ton of boxes or complicated containers? So when I found out that the folding cartons are made from 100% recycled paper that use 70% less water in processing than typical paperboard, that only added another check in the pro column for me.
I'm not the only one who's into this line and making shifts toward being more eco-friendly, Kristen Bell, Neutrogena Brand Ambassador has a few tips as well! She told InStyle.com, "It shouldn't scare people. For example, I try to limit my showers to 3 minutes; one long song and you're done. I do 4 things in the shower: I use soap, shampoo, conditioner, and brush my teeth. Most of the time, it's all done simultaneously!"
The Neutrogena Naturals Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Moisturizer ($9.89 for 3.0 oz.) has become my go-to morning moisturizer. It replenishes your skins necessary skin nutrients and continues to provide hydration and moisture throughout the day, even with makeup on top, for healthier skin. This feels super light on your skin, and has a nice sweet citrus scent, plus it won't clog your pores! I can definitely see a difference in the brightness of my skin after using, and that's thanks to the super trio combination of Vitamins B, C, and E, plus antioxidant bionutrients which fight against dull and rough skin.
The Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes ($6.99 for 25) are ultra-soft and made with naturally-derived cleansing ingredients to leave your skin fresh and purified. Not only have I been using these to remove my makeup at night before using the cleanser, but they're a must-have for a quick cleanse after a workout before I can go home and really wash my face. The unique emollients in its formula dissolve oil and makeup with ease, leaving your skin looking and feeling purified instantly. Plus, there's no greasy residue left behind (one of my biggest makeup remover wipe pet peeves!), and they even remove your waterproof mascara.
The Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser ($6.99 for 6.0 oz.) has been clinically proven to remove 99% of dirt, oil, and impurities from your skin, to leave it looking and feeling fresh and clear. Any pore-cleansing residue in on or in your skin is knocked out with willowbank bionutrient salicylic acid that removes dirt, oil, and makeup. Plus, it also includes guar bean, coconut, and corn. Weird, I know, especially the corn, but it works! My skin feels refreshed and clean after using this morning or night, and I can't say enough good things about it!
Using environmentally-conscious products not only makes you feel good about what you're doing for the earth, but what you're doing for your skin as well! Kristen Bell said it best to UsMagazine.com, "Consistency and simplicity is what my skin really, really responds to." I'd love to hear from you your tips on leading a more environmental-friendly lifestyle and how you're simplifying your skin care routine.
