We’ve spoken before about how much we love natural skin care – and the exciting news is we’re starting to see the big brands pick up on the growing demand for Natural Skin and Body Care. New kids on the natural block now include Neutrogena who have just released a new skin care range for easily accessible and affordable natural skin care.
The Neutrogena Naturals range is a collection of eco friendly products using the goodness of naturally derived ingredients to safely deliver you soft and clear skin. The whole range is free from sulfates, parabens or dyes.
Firstly the collection includes two facial cleansers – first there is the Purifying Facial Cleanser (RRP $14.99) for problem skin. It contains willowbark, a natural source of the potent acne fighter salicylic acid, which will help to wash away impurities and detoxify the pores. If you don’t struggle with acne, the Fresh Cleaning + Makeup Remover (RRP $14.99) is a gentle and hydrating cleanser. With Vitamin A, Vitamin B and Vitamin E, the product cleanses deeply without stripping the skin of its natural oils.
For that extra oomph, the collection also includes a Purifying Pore Scrub (RRP $14.99) – with willowbark, jojoba oil and coconut the scrub gently breaths new life into dull and troubled skin.
The range also includes a great Face and Body Bar (RRP $4.99) which is a great addition to your shower routine. Containing the healthiest omega fatty acides, derived from Avocado and Olive Oil, it replenishes and conditions your skin. Also keep an eye out for the collection’s lip balm (RRP $4.99) which is 100% naturally derived. Using the best of nature’s goodness – beeswax, jojoba oil, sesame seed oil and shea butter, the product nourishes dry skin and keeps your lips in constantly kissable condition.
We love how open Neutrogena have been with this range – the back of the products list the ingredients, and alongside each ingredient it is listed where that ingredient was sourced from. It’s great to know where your products are coming from. We’ve really loved using the cleansers, the smell is sublime, so fresh and invigorating, it smells like a mix of pear and apple so it feels natural from the word go. Both cleansers and the pore scrub worked wonders on our skin, we used the purifying facial cleanser when we had no make up on morning and night and the creamier version (cleansing and make up remover) for the removal of make up in the evening. The Pore Cleanser is gentle and the skin looked and felt squeaky clean after use.
Coming in 2014, you’ll be able to follow up the cleansing routine with one of the collection’s two moisturisers; the Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Moisturiser (RRP $14.99), a lightweight day time hydrator or the Nourishing Night Cream (RRP $14.99) which uses a melange of vitamins to replenish the skin as you sleep. They’ve been so popular internationally that we have to wait until then to get our little mitts on them, so until then, happy cleansing!
The collection is available now from supermarkets, pharmacies and department stores all across Australia.
