Are we all raving about the latest Sephora VIB sale online? I know this is not available to people outside of US.....how sad....there are a lot of brands that I wanna get a hold of =(!
This week is about drugstore beauty, Neutrogena. I would say my last time using this brand was back in high school days and had been off my radar ever since. Only until my latest trip to Sydney, I was able to get a taste of them and find them good enough for everyday in terms of quality and price.
This is what I got from Sydney and I found it is also for sale in Hong Kong so wish to share with you.
In terms of the Neutogena Hydro Boost Water Gel, I was quite impressed in the light texture and very much best for all weathers. For summer, like now in Hong Kong, I like it so much as it is so light under make up. It is a day creme with SPF15. It seems the hydro boost range had been with us for a long time and it helps to regulate the moisture level of the skin through out the day. For around AUD 21 or HKD 150, I think it is my best choice for travelling. Although I do on and off use this as it is very much light weight, even for a run is much sufficient - for weather like this. The only thing I am a bit hesitant is the blue colour, although it goes away when you massage the product into the skin. Oh and one very interesting find is, they are made in Korea. For those who love Korean made products, probably this is also a good one to add to your list!
This Neutrogena Hydro Boost Eye Roll-On is my best companion especially when I was on the flight. I used it for any dry flakes on my skin beside the eye roller function. I often love this rolling ball design as they are the most convenient invention! I like it for small touchups too on top of make up. This sells for AUD 17 and HKD 150.
To add to your daily skincare, it is just time for slip, slop and slap.....did I get this right? Sunscreen factor! If you follow my blog you would know I normally use the Japanese brands in terms of sunscreen. I had to tell you drugstore finds are kinda interesting in many ways! This Neutrogena, Ultra Sheer Clear Face Sunscreen Liquid-Lotion is just I want!
This probably provides the basic of SPF 30 which satisfy both UVA/UVB qualities for breakout prone skin. I have tried this for a few weeks and it actually make my skin produce less oil. It is also oil free and is just veyr water light texture as well. Another very good factor is this is very much approved by the Skin & Cancer Foundation of Australia. This very much a US product. For AUD 15 or below HKD200 for 88mL (I had not check the price in HK but I do see the product on HK shelves) I think is a good bargain!
If you are travelling or wanna save for a branded handbag then this is a very good option. For me I do stick with these on and off whether I am at bay or travelling. They are a convenient find where you should be able to get your hands on in every country!
For a little look at their texture:
From Left is Hydro Boost Water Gel, Eye Roll-On and Ultra Sheer. This is taken when product are used on skin.
This is after when product has been massaged into skin. You will find the Eye Roll-On in the middle is colourless. The Water Gel is now also colourless. For a little dot of Ultra Sheer, you will find it goes a long way which probably I squeeze too much for my hand right there!
