Saving Face

Neutrogena and I are like the couple who met in college and are still happily together after all these years.  People often question our bliss.  How can you still be in love after so many years?  The answer is simple.  True love stands by your side on good and bad days.  I’ve splurged on pricier products but I always end up reaching for my tried and true.  The products below, along with Mariah Carey’s greatest hits, have seen me through some tough times.  Ok, let’s get started!

“Always Be My Baby”














Deep Clean Cleanser→This oil free creamy cleanser gets my skin squeaky clean without ever over drying my face.  Massaging it in is not only therapeutic to my skin, but my soul too!  I keep this in my shower and near my sink at all times.

Oil-Free Acne Wash→This is one of my must-haves for skin care, especially if you struggle with  occasional breakouts.  It’s gentle enough for daily use and strong enough to keep those pesky pimples at bay.   I never travel without it.  Ever.  I also use this with my Clarisonic once in a while for a deeper clean.  Be careful not to over do it with your Clarisonic when using this wash.  It may cause over-drying.

Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub→It says it all in the title.  This triple threat scrub helps with breakouts, blackheads and exfoliation too!


My face counts on this trio as a one-stop shop for moisture, sun protection and anti-aging.  It’s amazing how something so low in cost can meet such high expectations.

Oil-Free Moisture→ A lack of moisture can aggravate existing breakouts or cause new ones to occur.  I use this daily!  Whether I’m having a good face day or not, this is my daily defense against dehydrated or lackluster skin.  Bonus: It’s SPF 35!

Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eyes & Face/Neck→   These two are cost efficient and truly effective.  I use the rapid repair products usually only at night and mostly on areas where I see the need.  There’s absolutely nothing wrong with aging.  Embrace it!  But why not make a few people jealous while you’re at it?


Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes→ If you don’t already use these wipes, well you may be the only one.  Whether you’re a fanatic like me who has to remove every SINGLE trace of makeup at night or simply someone who’s in a rush, this will meet both criteria.  These soft towelettes also make great traveling companions!  No need to pack all of your 27 cleansers.  These towelettes will do just fine.

Clear Face Break-Out Free Liquid Lotion Sunscreen→ Read the name of this product 3X and if you’re still undecided on the benefits, well, I can’t help you.  This super light wonder has yet to cause me to break-out or burn.  Bonus: It’s SPF 55!

Ultra Sheer Sunscreens→ Great products for the beach or anywhere basically.  I throw the Face & Body stick in my purse when I travel!  Bonus:  SPF 70-100+!

Neutrogena Naturals→ These are the newest to my collection!  I have placed them in my rotation of cleansers and so far I don’t see any reason to pull them out.  It’s always good to go natural.

Happy Cleansing!
