If you’ve been reading Money Can Buy Lipstick for even the shortest amount of time, then you know how much I love drugstore beauty products. I always look to stores like Rite Aid to help me find whatever beauty product I’m in need of at the moment. So when I felt my skincare routine needed a bit of a boost, it was no surprise that I turned to Neutrogena at Rite Aid to discover a few new products, and pick up a few I’ve loved in the past.
A few weeks ago I looked at my skin in the mirror and said to myself “wow, my skin could use a little love”. Has that ever happened to you? It was very dry and dull from the cold weather, and it lost that natural glow that my skin usually has. I also noticed a few extra breakouts and an overall roughness that I wanted to get rid of. I had remembered using and loving the Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Scrub in college when I was having a similar experience with my skin, so I thought I would try it again. You guys, there is a reason why certain products are considered tried and true. Within a week, I had noticed my skin was clearer, and most importantly it didn’t have that rough feeling. I would touch my skin, and it felt soft and smooth. I have acne-prone skin and my skin tends to react really well to products that contain salicylic acid, so I made a note to keep using products that contained the ingredient.
When I was shopping for the Pink Grapefruit Scrub, I had noticed a new Neutrogena product I hadn’t seen in the past. It was the Deep Clean Purifying Clay Cleanser/Mask. Like the Pink Grapefruit Scrub, it also contains salicylic acid, so I thought I would give it a try. I was also immediately drawn to the fact that it’s a 2-in-1 product. You may not know this about me, but I am all about products that serve multiple purposes. Maybe it’s the multi-tasker in me, but I love it. The purifying clay formula is designed to draw out trapped dirt, oil, and makeup. As a beauty blogger, I test new makeup almost daily, so it’s important that I use products that will prevent any sort of buildup on my face.
The Deep Clean Purifying Clay Cleanser/Mask has become an instant favorite. I use it as a cleanser everyday, and then as a mask every 3-4 days. Using it alongside the Pink Grapefruit Scrub I have noticed such a difference in my skin. I was really beginning to worry about my skin’s rough texture a few weeks ago. At one point this winter, my skin had become so rough that I couldn’t apply make-up without it looking patchy. It made me dread applying make-up in the morning. I can happily report that those days are behind me, and my foundation now applies perfectly again!
