Neutrogena has been by my side ever since I can remember starting wearing makeup. Why because it was a brand I trusted to take care of not only my skin but most importantly being a broke college student, it was a brand that was affordable as well. So as you can imagine, over the years I have accumulated a few favorites that are always my ride or die products I always turn to.
So on top of being a broke college student at the time, I also had a lot of stress which translated into a lot of breakouts. I have suffered from acne from a very young age and still today I suffer from breakouts as an adult. For that reason their Skin Clearing line has always been in my collection. My all time favorite powder of life has always been the Skin Clearing Mineral Powder. Can’t even tell you how many years I’ve used this powder. This product is one that really made an impact on my skin because not only did it help me cover some of the acne but at the same time it helped diminish it. It was the only oil free powder known to me to help me treat and prevent breakouts without clogging my pores. Feeling good about myself with or without makeup is so important to me. So over the years I continued using this powder and as time went by my skin started to get #NeverBetter. I love the skin I am in now, perfect or not.
As you know I am a mom on the go and there are times I will look like a hot mess so I try to carry the essentials with me at all times. As I have mentioned, I am a strong believer in feeling good in your own skin, with or without makeup. It is important to do what makes you feel never better about yourself every day. For me makeup gives me that boost of energy to go on with my day. Feeling somewhat put together gives me a little more confidence to conquer my day. Of course there are those days where I am running out the door and rely on these few items to pick me up on my way out. So here are a few must have items to have in your bag to make you feel and look #NeverBetter.
1. Moisture Shine Lip Soother: Where has this product been all my life! This is one item I just recently discovered because my lips felt like very dry leather, to give you a good description. This contains a cooling hydragel which feels really nice on the lips and also contains sunscreen SPF 20 which was a nice addition. Unlike other shines out there this one in particular is not sticky which is something I really appreciate, just gives your lips a little shine. My lips have been #NeverBetter now that I use this. They feel soft and supple; and look healthy which is the most important thing.
2. Norwegian Formula Hand Cream: I am one to always have ashy dry hands during the fall and winter time. This hand cream makes my hands during this time #NeverBetter. They keep my hands looking ash free and they really keep them moist for a long time.
3. Healthy Skin Blends Blush: I feel like blush just gives me that little pick me up if I re-aply powder to my face so I always try to carry this with me. I especially love this one because I feel like I cant overdue it, it just gives it that little natural pop of color to my cheeks and makes me look #NeverBetter.
4. Healthy Volume Mascara: I have very little and straight lashes, so without mascara I feel like my eyes are not complete. I really love a mascara that can give me that volume my lashes need. This mascara makes them look fuller and longer at the same time.
I now feel #NeverBetter in my own skin. I love who I’ve become and when you achieve that, everything changes. I’ve learned that the more I love myself, the more powerful & confident I become.
