Beauty Review: Facial Skin Products - Neutrogena and Kiehl’s

I’ve been waiting excitedly for a long time to write this post. It might have sound weird reading that haha, but for me finding a facial cream that I like is pretty hard, and having found two products made me happy to share them with you.

Hope you enjoy reading this review and be sure to let me know what you think! Have you tried these products before? What facial creams do you like?

Neutrogena's Ultra Sheer Liquid Sunscreen:

The face is one of the areas of your body that is more exposed to the sun, thus increasing the probability of having skin lesions due to the UV rays. Therefore, wearing daily sunscreen is important. I’ve noticed that a lot of facial sunscreens have a thick or heavy consistency that takes time to be absorbed by the skin. Also, most leave your skin greasy and shiny, something I do not enjoy. 

Neutrogena’s facial sunscreen is completely different. At first, when I read it’s name, Ultra Sheer Liquid Sunscreen, I was skeptical and thought to myself: like fun it is haha, but actually, it is a liquid sunscreen. It comes in a small bottle, but this isn’t a bad thing since you only need a small amount of the product to cover your face. It is quickly absorbed by the skin. I usually apply it after washing my face, then I’ll put my clothes on and by the time I’m putting on my shoes it has been absorbed. The skin feels soft at touch and not greasy at all. I haven’t had any break outs, any pimples, nothing. It has an SPF of 70, which is a great protection from the sun. Being exposed to the sun using this sunscreen, I haven’t notice more freckles than the ones I already had and my skin hasn’t tanned. I've always liked Neutrogena's products and this one I definitely recommend it!

Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream:

I had never heard of Kiehl’s before and, to be honest, it probably was because it has been in the recent years that I’ve started to really get into beauty stuff. The lady that recommended this brand told me that they focus on natural ingredients, creating a formula rich in vitamins and minerals that help nurture the skin. I was attracted by this information and decided to give it a try. This facial cream is soft and creamy, yet easily absorbed by the skin, which is great. I felt that there is no need to apply big amounts of the product since it’s creaminess allows you to give a full coverage with just a small amount. Also, bonus points haha, it has an SPF of 30 that allows you to use this product during the day without worrying about the sun rays. After continuous use, I noticed that my skin was more hydrated, less dull. Personally, I thought it looked healthier, like it had a kind of glow, which it might had been because of its moisturizing effect. As for the wrinkle reducing effect of this product, I did notice that most of the lines I have in the outer corner of my eyes and my forehead looked less visible. I believe that dry skin tends to accentuate wrinkles and, by hydrating it, these wrinkles are less noticeable. If you are looking for such effect on the lines of your face, I would recommend a daily use of the cream, just so the active ingredients can be maintain at a constant level and your skin can nourish from them. I look forward to trying more products from this brand and investigating more about their use of natural ingredients.

Hope you enjoy this review!
