It’s always bound to happen. I always have great plans to be winter compliant, and then winter actually hits and I’m scrambling to not have dry skin or lips. I know. Shocker. And no, I don’t carry moisturizer and lip balm around with me and apply it maniacally. I’m just kidding. I don’t carry it anywhere because I hardly leave my house outside of work commitments. So, because this winter has been slapping us around and calling us Susan already,*insert edit because it was 60 degrees in CHICAGO yesterday* and because I’ve been invited to one of the most anticipated movie premiers this year, I need to have my skin and pout in order. No crumbly looking lips and desiccated skin for THIS person at the end of the month. Enter Neutrogena Hydro Boost cosmetics, and we’re all good. And it’s not just my pout that will be dewy looking, but my skin too! And we all know that dry, dull skin is not the business for anyone – beauty blogger, mom, CEO, bus driver, or student. It’s just not a good look.
On one of my many jaunts to Walmart, I checked out the display of the Neutrogena Hydro Boost products, and decided to pick some items that would help with my dark circles, and dry lips. You see a pattern here? I can’t deal with concealer that ends up rolling up on my face because it dries it out too much, and I don’t have the funds to buy all of the things that I would need to layer moisture onto my face in order to prevent that from happening. We’re trying to work smarter this year, and if I can find a big box brand to help with that, so be it. *SIDE BAR* They also have a Skin Clearing line that you can look into if that’s what you need.
You know what’s funny. Last week, we were dealing with subzero temperatures and this week, we’re dealing with temps that feel like spring is starting. Do you know how much havoc that wreaks on your skin? I do. Flaky t-zones and what not are not what I’m trying to sport. Given that it is a new year, I figure I can at least vow to act as if I have the glorious skin that everyone always compliments, and walk in my beauty.
I really love that the application of all of the products is simple. No brushes or special tools needed. The concealer has a hydrating core that allows for smooth application, and they might have a new fan in me! Blending was simple, and I’m pretty impressed that there was no caking under my eyes after application.
