Neutrogena Saves My Skin!

*Disclaimer: This is a personal beauty and makeup related blog. All opinions and reviews displayed on this site are solely my own opinion and I am not paid or endorsed for this review unless otherwise stated. The products listed in this post have been provided for my review as a courtesy, but in no way influences my honest review and/or opinion.

Even though we are into summer, I feel like winter is around the corner, and even with this hot California heat, my skin takes a beating to all the elements. Here are a few products from Neutrogena that I love!

Neutrogena’s hand cream gives my hands life! I love this hand cream, it’s super moisturizing and concentrated so you’ll find yourself not having to re-apply every 5 minutes with other “lotions” that make your hands feel drier. I love using this in the winter time when my hands feel so chapped and dry, their foot cream version works just as amazing!

The body oil from Neutrogena is also one of my favorites. It’s also a staple in my shower because it does a great job of keeping the rest of my body moisturized, soft, and supple. After a day at the pool or beach and getting your tan on, your skin can often feel tight and leathery, but a dose of their body oil can bring your skin back to life. I like mixing their body oil with my body wash to give me that extra oomph of moisture, or sometimes I like to apply it at the end of my shower and just gently towel dry so that it gets rid of the oiliness but still allows enough of the oil to seep through your skin. I also like that it has a light scent.

I have not tried the rain bath and shower gel yet, as it’s one of Neutrogena’s newest products in their line, but I cannot wait to give this a try. It just sounds like heaven and I can honestly picture myself taking a shower in the rainforest lol.

Another new product in their line which I am super excited to try is their Triple Repair Hair Treatment. I have long hair so it’s always a struggle trying to keep it healthy and from feeling dry and brittle. In addition, I recently dyed it from dark to a medium brown/blonde color so it’s always a challenge to find the right products that are right for you and don’t make your feel worse then it did before. This claims to mend split ends and breakage so I cannot wait to use this one either!

Neutrogena has been one of my drugstore favs since high school, so it’s exciting to see that they are coming out with new products. I highly recommend the body oil and hand cream, and their eye makeup removing wipes (not pictured). You can pretty much find Neutrogena products anywhere. What are your favorites?

Milani Cosmetics Gel Powder Eyeshadows

Introducing the new Bella gel powder eyeshadows from Milani Cosmetics! Saw these at my local CVS store last week however they had a smaller display which only had some of the shades, I then went to Walgreens today and was able to grab a few more as they were on sale for $3.99, whereas CVS was $4.59 each. Since I hear these are permanent, I would wait until they have a BOGO half off or BOGO free sale (which they occasionally do). I believe there are a total of 19 shades.

I skipped on some of the other colors only because I know I would either never use them, or because I have something similar (do I really need another black eyeshadow?!??).

First impression: These are NOT gel, nor are they “gel-like”, it’s not soft and mushy like a gel, in fact I have actual gel-powder eyeshadows from Colour Pop Cosmetics to compare it to, and those are definitely gel, because as soon as you touch it, your finger feels somewhat wet to the touch, and the slightest touch causes the product to move similar to that of a mousse/gel.

These eyeshadows however, just feel like a soft, baked, finely-milled powder eyeshadow. They don’t shift to the touch, and they feel very velvety and smooth. Some shades are highly pigmented, even on their own without a primer, some looked less pigmented with a primer for some odd reason, and some were not pigmented at all (Bella Cappuccino and Bella Caffe were the worst performing, they were so light and I really had to scrape a good amount of color just to swatch them), in all fairness though, it may be a good thing that they go on so light for those of you that have a heavy hand, because it will really give a more natural look then going on too heavy or borderline smoky. Bella Sand was also another one that was very sheer and light, however that was what I expected, and it makes a good highlighting color.

In terms of performance and staying power, I have not tested it myself as of yet since I just got these, from what I know with past Milani eyeshadows, a good eyeshadows primer is a must. They seem to fade very quickly when worn alone.

Below are the shades I bought, there are two swatches in each pic, for each color, the swatch on the left is the eyeshadow by itself, and the swatch on the right is with an eyeshadow primer (I used a Rimmel eyeshadow primer for these).

My favorite shades: Bella Gold, Bella Bronze, Bella Emerald, Bella Navy, and Bella Charcoal
Least favorites: Bella Cappuccino and Bella Caffe
