Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick Review

I got the Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Almond Nude as an Ulta freebie this week and it’s pretty amazing.  It retails for $8.99 and gave me great moisture and mango (yes, mango).

What’s to love?

This MoistureSmooth Color Stick  from Neutrogena comes in 16 colors including 8 new ones. When I first opened this one I excepted it to have a sugar or cookie scent based on the color but all of the Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Sticks are mango scented with Shea butter for moisture. I’m not a huge mango fan but it does smell nice and fresh and I’m fine with the scent.

The pigmentation and color hue is amazing on this one. The Almond Nude shade is so pretty and I think it looks great on my lips. It also has a light shine which I like and the color lasted for a few hours.

The packaging is great with a twist-up design too. This product definitely feels like a high end lip balm to me and they price to great. I think I’m going to pick up Rich Raisin next.



Neutrogena Ultra Light Cleansing Oil Review

I got a full-sized bottle of Neutrogena Ultra Light Cleansing Oil in my Summer 2016 Beautycon box and just got around to trying it.


What’s to love?

I’m always on the look-out for new and improved ways to remove my make-up so I was curious to try the Neutrogena Ultra Light Cleansing Oil.

This one smells really good, just like fruit which is nice. I pumped out a few squirts on a cotton make-up pad and went to work. The cleansing oil does an amazing job at removing make-up fast. The main ingredient is mineral oil and I’m assuming that’s what breaks up the make-up. Now the instructions say to work into your face with your fingers so I tried that too. Afterwards I rinsed with water.

After removing my make-up I still had a very light oily feeling. However I think if my skin was dryer the oily feeling would actually be a great benefit. So I think this is a quality product, it’s just not for me.

What I didn’t like.

For me personally I like an astringent type of remover. I’m glad I got this for free because now I know I’m not a fan of an oil remover. For me the oil feels way too heavy on my already oily skin and I just couldn’t kick that greasy feeling. I was also hesitant to use this on my eyes which is weird because I do use astringent based prodcuts to remove mascara without a problem.

Price: $8.99
