Last month I traveled to Los Angeles for a Skin Health Summit hosted by Neutrogena. I was honored to be chosen as one of their 2014 ambassadors. What does that mean? It means that I am lucky enough to share with you amazing products that are not only affordable, but ones that can literally transform your complexion, hair and beauty routines...for the better.
Neutrogena sent me a series of questions. My answers confirmed specific products that would help compliment my needs and aid in combating difficulties I have with my complexion, cosmetic gaps and hair care.
Below are a list of products that I have added to my daily routine, ones that I have either been using for years or that I wish I would have started implementing months ago.
Make sure to keep reading to win one of five gift bags from Neutrogena.
Here are three of my favorites from the mix:
I have extremely oily skin and it doesn't help that I live in Texas where the summer months are brutal and the humidity levels are high. I have been using the Oil Free Face wash for a few years. It is perfect for removing make up and has redness soothing aloe and chamomile that are a miracle workers when my face and I don't agree.
Like I said, my skin is oily and I used to believe I did not need to use a daily moisturizer. Wrong. All you ladies out there with oily skin, we need it more than most. A good moisturizer helps balance out our skin. The oil-free line from Neutrogena has been gentle enough to provide a lightweight, non-greasy finish. I use it both morning and night. It's ideal for sensitive skin, is hypoallergenic, fragrance and alcohol free.
Going back to the shine aspect of things, I have tried at least five-seven primers. I must say that after trying the Neutrogena Shine Control Primer, I am sold. Again, this one is non-greasy and has a patent-pending rice protein technology that acts like a sponge to absorb excess oil. I have definitely seen a difference in my skin since I began using this a few weeks ago. Did I mention that it helps to minimize pores?
Today, Neutrogena and I have joined forces to give FIVE lucky reader friends a gift bag full of the same beauty treats I received. Winners will be sent the following full size products:
1. Small printed cosmetic/travel bag
