Spring 2017 – Neutrogena Hydra Boost Color

The onset of winter often means a change in skincare for a lot of people – drier skin makes for a much more difficult canvas, especially on days you may (feel) you need coverage.

While Neutrogena’s Hydra Boost Makeup Collection is technically for Spring 2017, it’s a perfect time to launch because the colder months very likely require more nourishing formulas. 

There are a few products in the lineup (serum, lip shine, cleanser, makeup, concealer, lip treatment) so if you tend towards dry skin to begin with, or you know colder air will require a tweak to your routine…they might be worth checking out.

Spring 2016 – Neutrogena

I was excited to see some of the new Neutrogena Spring 2016 products on Ulta!  The first of these is the SkinClearng Complexion Perfector (probably the product I was most excited about personally.)

Per the site, the Perfector:

  • Fights acne and provides even coverage to help correct skin’s complexion
  • Blends naturally with your skin to instantly blur the look of acne and minimize appearance of pores
  • Matte finish controls shine
  • Won’t clog pores, hypoallergenic
  • Dermatologist tested

I love products with Salicylic acid because as an athlete, sweat is a sure thing!  Salicylic acid helps to exfoliate the skin, keeping it clear – for me, just a wash isn’t enough (I actually  use a body wash as well since rolling on mats in a heavy gi is bad news for skin and pores!)

Next up is the Healthy Skin Anti-Aging Perfector.  This “moisturizing retinol treatment with sunscreen” offers sheer coverage and an easy blend.  Per the site:

  • Instantly erases the look of imperfections
  • Smooths out skin’s texture and reduces the appearance of fine lines
  • Gives skin a natural, dewy finish
  • Dermatologist tested

Neutrogena Healthy Skin

I saw these the other day at a Harmon store – fortunately the day after, Nouveau Cheap posted about them too…because my photos did NOT turn out!

The #10 Rosy Healthy Skin Blush was a mess (gotta love people!  Thanks for dropping it!), and the only other two were #30 Flushed, and #40.

As for the #20 Pure Sheer Highlighting Blush and some of the Natural Radiance Bronzers…those were present.  The  #10 Clean Translucent Powder was not in attendance however!

Nouveau Cheap shares some other comments and reviews, so worth looking at! 🙂 They look lovely, I will say!

*UPDATE: Musings of a Muse posted swatches – really pigmented, looks like!
