Review:Neutrogena's Skin Care Essentials #NTGBeautifulInsideOut

I live in South Beach and It's always beach weather here, so my skin get's really oily and sometimes I just give up wearing makeup especially on the beach. So I was so glad that I was given the opportunity to review Neutrogena's new products. I have always been a fan of Neutrogena because it's great for sensitive skin like mine, and it is such a trusted brand. 

Now let's get to the review....

First thing I did was use the Oil-Free Cleansing Wipes which I adore, and as you can see I have used the Make-up remover Towelettes religiously. These products actually feel very soft, they really don't feel like they have too much product in them which is a good thing. The scent of the wipes are very light and not overpowering, and this is coming from someone who is very sensitive to certain scents. 
Pros: Soft Scent,very moist not soggy, leaves the skin feeling moisturized
Cons: No con's

It's very important to Prep your skin before you actually apply your makeup, it sets the stage for beautiful flawless skin First I used a bit of the Ultra-Sheer dry touch sunscreen. It was very smooth and not greasy at all, the best part is that it's waterproof! Then I applied the Neutrogena Shine Control primer it was very lightweight, a mild fragrance, it was creamy but not greasy.  
Pros: Very Lightweight, light fragrance, non greasy
Cons: No con's

I am really loving these two products, the Shine control powder and Shine Control foundation in Fresh Beige. 
The foundation was easy to apply, it worked well with controlling shine. 
The Powder has a nice silky feel to it and it gave me the coverage I needed. 

Pros: Medium to full coverage, lightweight.
Cons: I put a bit of the foundation under my eye area and it made my eyes water instantly. That may not be the case for everyone I have very sensitive eyes. 
My only concern with these products is so much shine control may dry out your face. But I feel if you moisturize beforehand that can take care of the concern.

Healthy lengths Mascara, does exactly what it says on the package. It made my lashes really long and felt great. It didn't make my lashes look like brooms. I did one coat and it looked very nice but when I added the second coat it gave me more of a dramatic look. I did a total of three coats, because I wanted to see how thick it can get and to see if it would clump up. 

It did not clump up which is a plus, a trick I learned to avoid clumps when you apply the mascara at the base of the eyelash, make sure to go back and forth as you sweep the brush up. It's like you are brushes your eyelashes, and if you can twirl it at the same time for a dramatic look. The Crease Proof eyeshadow, went on like a dream. What I loved about it was very smooth, and it did not make my eyes feel dry.  

Pros: The mascara is very easy to use and makes my lashes fuller.
Cons: The crease proof shadow is a bit too light for my skin color.

Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick is one of my Favorite products. As soon as put the color stick on, it went on smoothly and my lips felt very moisturized. 

The color is very pretty and perfect for spring. 
Pros: It is very smooth and the color is just amazing! 
Cons: No cons

Finished look I achieved with the Neutrogena products. I really love it, because it is such a natural look that glows.

What is your routine beauty regimen? What Neutrogena products do you love?
