Welcome to my first post about the products that I love! These posts are going to be products that I ACTUALLY use – not something where I get a paid review from. After all, Laugh Always is all about living your best life and to live your best life you need all of the best items!
Today I want to tell you something I have been using since HIGH SCHOOL! Right, I am only 30 and have been out of high school for almost 12 years now so it might not sound that dramatic to people. Either way, I have been consistent with these products for a long time! I have been using Neutrogena brands since my very first pimple in middle school. Face wash, lotion, you name it! It was really the only thing available at local drugstores and one of the more cost effective brands (still is!)
Every one is different, I know that! But I am going to share what it has done for me and who knows, it might work for you too if you haven’t tried it!
The best face lotion I have ever used and STILL continue to use. Let me tell you something – I don’t wear makeup that often. The pictures you see of me all over social media – there isn’t any foundation or cover up in most of those pictures! I have been asked several times what foundation or concealer I use. None ladies – it is just my skin! I do have to stay I was lucky to not be bombarded with a ton of acne in my teenage years, but I still had it. Forehead, cheeks, chin were my worst spots! And of course how can you not pop those things?! (Gross I know and so bad for you!) I have had scarring and red spots and when I was younger I didn’t dare put enough sunscreen on (I need that tan!). I always had combination skin where parts of my face were oily, but if I used too much face wash, I had other areas of my face dry out. Especially in the winter, my driest skin was around the corners of my mouth and in between my eyebrows. I have applied this lotion everyday to my face since high school – and that is NOT an exaggeration! This has been my go to for nearly 15 years now, and I have not bought another lotion. It is cost effective and lasts me about three months. I apply once a day all over my face. It isn’t greasy and it always feel super refreshing when I use it! Especially right out of the shower after I have just washed my face!
If you are looking for a cheaper route and one that does wonders for you, try this one out! Amazon has this for a pack of two for only $16.48!
When I do tend to wear makeup, I never used to take it off (I know, that is gross!). So I decided to make the investment in buying makeup wipes. Again, I don’t wear makeup often and I am not looking for something to break the bank. I have always been loyal to Neutrogena products so I thought I would try these. Of course, these are the best ones that I have used. They do not dry out quickly, because I don’t use them that often. They also do not dry out my face or burn. My face feels so refreshed after using one wipe and usually one wipe is perfect for me! One package usually runs me $5.99 and that is good for me because one pack lasts me a long time especially because these don’t dry out. You can purchase them in bulk on Amazon of course because Amazon is the best thing ever!
This cleanser has been a life-saver for me. I breakout when it is “that” time of the month and I am very conscious of where my acne pops up (have you heard of facemapping??). Usually I am always looking for the actual cause as to why my acne is popping up. While I am not a teenage anymore and I am going into my thirties, I still get acne whenever I am stressed or if I have had one too many cocktails. While I will naturally try to get rid of my breakouts, I use this cleanser to assist me. It makes my face clear fast. It is so powerful that I cannot use it everyday and if I do tend to use it everyday, it will dry out my face. It does the job when I need it to and it lasts me a long time since I don’t need to use it everyday. This has been my all-time favorite facial cleanser! Click the link below to purchase (again Amazon has it cheaper than most drug stores!)
Another favorite product! A spot corrector that dries out little pimples overnight. Works like a charm! I put it on before I go to sleep and in the morning my pimple is usually gone or a lot smaller. I have had one small tube for over three months now and for just seven bucks, it is perfect for me! I get a lot of acne on my chin or forehead and usually they are red and painful and this helps take the pain and redness away for sure. Amazon has it cheaper than for what I paid for it so try it out!
I hope you have found one or a few products worth trying! I have been a loyal Neutrogena fan in my teenage years and in my adult life and I don’t think I would try anything else! They all work for me and everything has been easy to purchase. My next purchases will be through Amazon for sure because if you have prime – remember it is free shipping! All of these are cheaper online through Amazon and it will save me a trip to the local drugstore.
Thanks for reading!
Until next time,
