My Skincare Routine: Then & Now
I’m grateful that my mom started me on a skincare routine early. I think I was twelve or thirteen when she suggested a gentle face wash and a lightweight moisturizer. Both came from NEUTROGENA® and worked really well with my skin type. Through high school, I didn’t suffer from terrible acne, just the occasional pimple here and there. I quickly discovered that with a consistent skincare routine, my face wouldn’t break out and looked/felt healthy. Although I’ve added in a few more steps since my cleanser + moisturizer days, I’m still consistently using NEUTROGENA® products in my day to day life, loving them just as much as my thirteen year old self did. Here’s my morning routine for skincare to help me start off the day with a confidence booster:
- Cleanse face with NEUTROGENA® pink grapefruit oil free acne wash cleanser
- Apply serum/toner, depending on the day
- Apply a generous amount of moisturizer to hydrate
Now, NEUTROGENA® has grown and expanded their lines and I’m excited to get to discuss the Pink Grapefruit products with you all today. I first purchased the pink grapefruit oil free acne wash cleanser in college and the burst of energizing freshness, coupled with the heavenly grapefruit smell had me sold. I love using this one particularly in the morning because I’m convinced it wakes me up! With Grapefruit Extract + Vitamin C, it clears breakouts and even the marks they leave behind. Even when I compared other brands, I found that the NEUTROGENA® price point couldn’t be beat and the quality was exceptional, making it my “go to” for any skincare item. As the number one dermatologist recommended acne brand, there’s just something comforting about a product that you know will work consistently with your skin at any age.
Confidence With Clear Skin
I’m a believer that confidence is your best accessory. Through high school, I felt comfortable with myself overall and I think there were a variety of factors that contributed to that confidence. I know for a fact that clear skin (especially at the high school age) helped me grow comfortable and confident with who I am. I’ve always been one to embrace a more natural makeup look and let my skin speak for itself. Whatever your skin type, know that a healthy, regular routine for your face is the best thing that you can do. For younger girls out there, start early! I’m religious about my daily routine and never skip a step. Let me know if you’ve tried the Pink Grapefruit line before and what you think! I have to say, even Brandon has used it and was surprised at how much he enjoyed the scent as well! It’s not overpowering, but has that “fresh feel” after you cleanse.
We went to our local CVS for this product (which is literally four minutes from our house). I think the convenience factor of the NEUTROGENA® brand is another thing that keeps me coming back. I love any product that can be obtained at a drug store to avoid the hassle of shipping. I also love that you can find CVS discounts and coupons regularly. We have the free CVS membership card and that always allows us to find bargain deals like buy one, get one or sale prices. Right now, CVS is offering up to $2.00 in cash back when you purchase NEUTROGENA® products and they also have a buy one, get the second pink grapefruit item 40% off. This offer is just while supplies last so I’d move quickly! Let me know if you end up trying it out and what your thoughts are!
