The Skin I’m In: Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair

I’m back with more to tell you about Neutrogena!  As you may or may not know, I am no spring chicken.  These last few months, I’ve been doing my best to try and take better care of myself.  It’s not easy.

One of the ways I am doing this is by taking better care of my skin.  To that end, I have been religiously using some Neutrogena products.  A few weeks ago I told you about their Oil Free Acne Wash in Pink Grapefruit line. I used that bad boy to keep my skin clean.

I can now say that I have been keeping up with moisturizing  (which I will admit, I’ve been horrible at in the past).  I always hated the 15 steps it took to keep up with whatever it was that I was using.  To the point that I stopped doing it and I feel like my skin showed it.  Now, I find it so easy.  Throw on a couple of dabs of this and that as I run out of the shower in hopes that the frog princess hasn’t had a potty accident and voila! I’m good as new.

Let’s get one thing straight: I’m not a beauty blogger so I am not sure what the jargon is for this sort of thing.  Before I started using this treatment my skin, though oily, would flake.  And I started noticing these little lines around my eyes. My skin just didn’t look good. This is why I miss being pregnant and nursing.  It gave me beautiful glowing skin.

Well thank the sweet baby Geezus that I don’t have to get knocked up and go through mounds of Pampers in order to achieve great looking skin! I have found that my skin feels smoother and dare I say it? Silky.

My face looks clean and I am finding that the skin feels firmer.  The one of the things I kept hearing people say was that this was the perfect time to start taking better care of my skin in order to make sure I could maintain a healthy-look and minimize my wrinklage (I’m copyrighting this word).

At night, I used Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye cream. It went on light and was easily absorbed by my skin. This was followed up by the Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night cream.  Which again, was airy and didn’t feel heavy on my pores.

In the daytime, I threw on some Rapid Wrinkle Repair Serum and followed it up with the Day moisturizer (with SPF30).

I am getting great results especially between my eyebrows. I always had this dry skin action going on there that I no longer exhibit. It’s just not sexy to be flaking from your face.

I love that my skin feels so good but what I love best is that I don’t feel like using these products is anything extra that I have to do. I stand in the mirror and can throw these on easy peasy.

Best of all, it’s from a brand I already trusted and I want to kick myself for waiting this long to try it out.  As I told you guys in the previous post, I was frantic looking for moisturizers a few months ago and ended up with the tried and true Neutrogena.  I’d like to think that I’m moving up the product line because, well, I am. It makes me feel like a grown up, ya’ll!

If you are all iffy about what to put on your skin or you simply don’t want to continue to spend a fortune (& I’m talking about both time and money) in order to get your skin up to Mami Swagger status then, you have to try these. And, of course, here’s your chance! The Rapid Wrinkle Repair line worth over $100 can be yours.
