Wintertime Skincare: What’s your #SkincareStatus now? #sponsored @Neutrogena #GoBeyondClean

I recently partnered with Neutrogena to share my thoughts about how to manage an effective skincare routine. As a busy mama who juggles family, fitness and work I need to keep myself looking pretty too. Time is always a balance challenge for me though. My skincare regimen has to be effective but simple.  It is possible to achieve radiant, healthy skin with a simple line of quality products. Ingredients are a key to it all. I have always believe healthy skin starts from the inside with a healthy diet and an active exercise regimen but....good skincare is critical as part of the whole picture.  It doesn't have to be complicated or expensive but don't take short cuts with your skin. It is easy these days to take care of your skin with the latest HydroBoost line from Neutrogena that address my skincare needs at a reasonable price point. HydroBoost is new line of gentle but effective skincare gel cream products that cleans and moisturizes at the same time with the advantage of hyaluronic acid.  I love the light textured products in this line but don't let the see through pretty gel cream formulas fool you. These gel cream based products are effective at cleansing and the creams absorb quickly into the skin to pump up the moisture to the nth degree. I received several products to try including the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gentle Cleansing Lotion, Cleansing Gel, Exfoliating Cleanser, Multivitamin Booster and Water Gel.

This is a favorite of mine. I love the light texture but it really holds in the moisture. Neutrogena® Hydro Boost Water Gel instantly pumps up the moisture and keeps skin looking smooth all day long. This formula absorbs fast so it is great for busy morning routines. One of the key ingredients is ultra hydrating hyaluronic acid. This is actually naturally found in the skin but it gets depleted as we age. The extra boost is just what my skin needs. The hyaluronic acid actually absorbs up to 1,000 times its weight in water. My skin feels smooth and soft after I use it. It is free of oil  or alcohol too so it is perfect pre-makeup primer or on its own. Non-comedogenic too.  Apply evenly to face and neck after cleansing morning or night. 19.99

My skin gets dry in the winter and over the years this has become more of a challenge. Hydro Boost Multivitamin Booster provides intense hydration and actually energizes your skin. It gets rid of that dull, tired look that can develop as you age and gives the skin a refreshed look. This face serum contains purified hyaluronic acid. This is an important building block for the skin. It helps to really pump up the skins moisture barrier against dryness. Neutrogena® Hydro Boost Multivitamin Booster Serum intensely hydrates and energizes the look of your skin. It adds hydration to improve the look of your skin each day. This ultra hydrating serum for dry skin is fortified with vitamin E and that critical purified hyaluronic acid. HA is a compound that occurs naturally in skin and it actually behaves like a sponge for dry skin and absorbs and retains all that essential water. Neutrogena recommends using this serum after cleansing and before moisturizing. Alternatively, you can add it to your favorite face moisturizer. 18.99

Neutrogena® Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel is a gentle and light option to achieve a clean face while improving hydration and moisture in the skin. This is the perfect cleanser since it also boosts hydration for ultra soft skin. I like the way this lightweight gel cleanser transforms itself into a creamy lather that removes makeup and any kind of dirt quickly and thoroughly. This formula is also infused with that key ingredient, hyaluronic acid which we know boosts the skin's hydration. This cleansing gel cleans and locks in hydration at the same time. It left my skin soft and comfortable when I used it. Soap-free. Oil-free. Paraben-free. Hypoallergenic. Non-comedogenic (won't clog pores) It is super easy to use too. Just wet your face, apply a bit to your hands and lather it up, wash and rinse well. 8.99

Hydro Boost Exfoliating Cleanser is a great way to exfoliate your skin as you clean. I love 2-in-1 beauty and skin care because it saves me time. This gentle formula exfoliates whiles boosting hydration in the skin. It left my skin clean, soft and glowing after I used it. This one is very lightweight and it is also gel-cream based like the entire Hydro Boost line of products. It was created with naturally-derived skin smoothing agents to effectively get your skin ultra clean and smooth. It also contains hyaluronic acid which helps to bump up the hydration and lock it right it. This left my skin clean, soft and comfortable. I use exfoliating cleanser a few times a week but Neutrogena has shared that this one is actually gentle enough for daily use. It is also easy to use. Just wet your face, apply to hands, add a bit of water and lather it up. Massage it gently in, avoiding eyes and rinse really well. Easy peasy! 8.99

If you are looking for a fragrance free option to clean your skin thoroughly, Hydro Boost Gentle Cleansing Lotion is a good one to try. It is mild and kind of melts into your skin to get rid of all the days dirt, oil and even makeup. It leaves your skin smooth and soft. Like the other Hydro Boost products, it has been derm tested for sensitive skin.  8.99

Neutrogena, has a long history in skincare going back to the 1930's. It says something about the company when you know that your dermatologist always recommends Neutrogena products as well.
I have known them since I was a teenager to be a company that I can rely on for premium skincare at a reasonable price. Check out Neutrogena to find out more about this great HydroBoost product line and all the other great products they have to offer.
