Neutrogena is constantly innovating in the skincare and beauty market, making makeup both beautiful but also beneficial. I recently had the awesome opportunity to meet Kerry Washington, the face of the brand for an introduction to their latest innovations and additions which includes:
8 New Shades MoistureSmooth Color Stick – Already a fan favorite, the MoistureSmooth Color Stick just added 8 new shades with slightly different textures: Classic Nude, Almond Nude, Pink Nude, Berry Brown, Pink Grapefruit, Cherry Pink, Classic Red, Wine Berry. Choose the original shades 10-80 for a sheer & shimmery finish and the new shades 90-180 for a bold & creamy finish. Swatched below, they feel amazing on and have beautiful pigment!
Fragrance Free Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes – I’m super excited that the award-winning face wipes now comes in fragrance free! Fragrance doesn’t have any skincare benefits so it’s so exciting they have launched a new version that is formulated for sensitive skin and eye area that effectively dissolve all traces of dirt, oil and makeup. Loved the original and so in love with the update!
Cooldry Sport SPF Collection – From the Cooldry Sport SPF collection there are 3 new products just in time for summer: Cooldry Sport Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50, Cooldry Sport Sunscreen Spray SPF 50, and Sunscreen Stick SPF 50. With breakthrough MICROMESH technology, the CoolDry Sport collection holds up in the most intense activities and is now available in a variety of application choices. As a girl that loves to exercise outside the more products in this collection with different consistencies, the better!
Hydro Boost Water Gel with Sunscreen SPF 15 – Another exciting launch after Neutrogena’s success with their Hydro Boost Water Gel, is their Hydro Boost Water Gel with Sunscreen with Hyaluronic Acid. The gel quenches dry skin and keeps it looking smooth, supple and hydrated. The unique water gel formula absorbs quickly, like a gel, but has the long-lasting, intense moisturizing power of a cream. It boosts skin’s hydration level and locks it in all day. The new version has the added value of SPF and is packaged in a tube which I prefer for shelf life and sanitary purposes vs a jar like the original. A tube is a really great way to make sure there is no contamination and it also helps protect against active ingredients breaking down sooner due to air exposure. And considering how often I like to slather this stuff on my face (on repeat) that makes me so happ!
The brand also greatly expanded their shade range and offerings in the foundation spectrum in different weights and coverage. The three existing lines with new shade ranges are: Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup (4 new shades: Honey, Caramel, Cocoa and Chestnet), SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup (3 new shades: Chestnut, Cocoa and Honey) and Nourishing Long Wear Makeup (3 new shades, Honey, Cocoa and Chestnut). All of the new shades are targeted for darker skin-tones so finally women of color have more options! My friend Danielle from The Style and Beauty Doctor does a great job of swatching and showing off all of these new shades so for any of you with darker skin tones check out her review HERE.
Also new on the foundation front…
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-aging Perfector – Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Aging Perfector is a tinted moisturizer that combines Retinol, SPF 20 moisturizer and blendable, sheer coverage to promote younger-looking skin. The six shades, enriched with Retinol, are clinically proven to smooth skin’s texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines while leaving the skin with a natural, dewy finish. I don’t love the packaging, it does this pop up thing when you open it and one of them broke on me while swatching so just be gentle when opening.
Oil-Free Acne Correct & Cover Pink Grapefruit Moisturize – Playing off their pink grapefruit collection, which is beloved by acne-prone skin, Neutrogenes has launched a a new sheer coverage, water-based moisturizer formulated to clear breakouts which concealing imperfections. The tinted moisturizer is available in two shades: Fair to Light and Medium to Tan. Neither are my perfect shade but hopefully this is the start to a very long line of this collection.
SkinClearing Complexion Perfector – Speaking of acnaic skin, this new foundation uses their Microclear technology and Salicylic Acid to provide sheer coverage while clearing breakouts. The foundation is available in 5 shades: Fair 10, Light 20, Light to Medium 30, Medium 40, Deep 50.
