Hydro Boost Your Skin with Neutrogena

Sponsored post by Mirum Shopper. All opinions are my own.

So we’re a few weeks into the New Year. Did you make any resolutions? I don’t really make them, or rather, don’t call them resolutions. More so, I just tweak a few things in my life, like turning off all electronics at 10pm and another is applying hand cream every night before bed. It’s easier for me to stick to small changes like this then to bite off more than I can chew, which is what I usually do!

Another way is to make sure I give my skin the TLC it deserves. I mean, it’s out there, front and center in every meeting, or braving the cold wind, so it should get some lovin’ right back. And we totally know that skin that has been taken care of begins with a good base like moisturizers, primers and foundations. One that’s sure to delight your skin is the latest Hydro Boost collection from Neutrogena. Doesn’t the name alone just invite you in?

The new Hydro Boost collection makeup items can all be found at Walmart stores and each are infused with Hyaluronic Acid to help with hydration as well as plump it up. As serious as the name sounds, Hyaluronic Acid is normally found in the structure of the skin, as well as joints, but as we age, the skin has a harder time being able to retain that moisture, so these products give skin the help it needs.

Here is a breakdown of each product:


Hydro Boost Water Gel – boost the hydration and locks it in so your skin will look great under makeup. And this has a SPF 15 inside and it smells so fresh and clean!

Neutrogena-Hydro-Boost-Hydrating-Tint-wandHydro Boost Hydrating Tint – plumps skin and boost hydration with this medium coverage tint. Oil-free and non-comedogenic.


Hydro Boost Hydrating Concealer – under my eyes is where I can always use some extra moisture! And this one doesn’t settle into any of the lines.



Hydro Boost Hydrating Lip Shine – non-sticky and makes my lips feel totally moisturized with a hint of tint. Shown here in Deep Cherry.


Hydro Boost Hydrating Lip Treatment – I’ve been using this one to give my lips intense conditioning when I got to bed at night.

Is this the Most Luxe Hair Care Line on Earth?



Do you ever wonder what the most fancy shampoo and conditioner is? Yes, salon brands are up there but I think I may have found the most fancy. I mean, just look at the one-of-a-kind bottles! They are so nice that I’d like to keep them and just refill them when necessary (I’ve done is before! :)

The brand is MAAZ PRODUCTS and was created when the founder felt there was a gap in the hair care world so he hired the best chemists all around the world and tested each formula directly in the hands of hair stylist. Using all their feedback, the bottles you see today combine the best available ingredients, science, fashion and environmental conscience.

And I thought it was only fitting to break out my best set of pearls to go with the products in the pic! And look at those unique bottles! They really paid attention to the detail with the whole line that’s available like the embossed logo on the front and the 'M' on the top of the caps.



The White Mulberry Invigorating Shampoo ($32/10oz @ smells amazing with accords of White Mulberry Extract and Kalahari melon oil and it also contains vitamin B5 among others.

And while I don’t think the White Mulberry Invigorating Conditioner ($32/10oz @ did the best to detangle my strands before styling, I think it helped moisturize and shine-up my hair with the acai and avocado oils inside.

Are you in the market for luxe this season?

Treating the Skin with the Latest from Pixi Beauty



Since the turn of the New Year, I’ve really been focusing on the state of my skin. In all these years that I’ve been writing this site, I have slowly been adding to my Holy Grail list, which is the crème de la crème of beauty products I’ve used. I’ve come to realize that I don’t have many skin care products on the list. Granted, makeup is certainly easier to test out and skin changes over time so I guess I’ve been hesitant to pick skin care products but I’m hoping that will change soon. Could it be with one of these beauties from PIXI BEAUTY? Let’s check them out!


Glowtion Day Dew ($22/1.18oz @ – so you see the glow from this one on my skin in the picture? That’s what your skin is getting with this one! This lightweight moisturizer is meant for application in the morning and contains those ingredients that blur skin imperfections, like mica. And I can smell the lavender inside for quite some time after applying it.

Beauty Sleep Cream ($24/1.18oz @, – anything that is meant to help me get a better night sleep is always good!  This one contains Shea Butter to hydrate and lavender oil and Matricaria, which is related to the Chamomile tribe and known for its calming elements.
