If you know me, you know that I ADORE Kristen Bell. As an obsessed Veronica Mars fan from episode one, I’ve followed Kristen’s Hollywood career over the years, happy to see my favorite celeb “make it big” both professionally and personally. So when Neutrogena Naturals and Marie Claire Magazine invited me to attend a brunch hosted by Kristen herself, I could not say “Yes!” fast enough.
If you have seen the print or television commercials, you may know Kristen is the brand ambassador for the Neutrogena Naturals collection. On a recent sunny morning, I gathered with some fellow beauty bloggers at a gorgeous home overlooking the hills of Los Angeles to hear about the collection and pick up a few skin care tips from Kristen herself.
Upon arriving, it was impossible not to spend some time admiring the view…
And after a delicious brunch by the pool, spent chatting with my blogging friends, it was time for the main event. The super sweet, very funny and completely glowing Kristen Bell held an informative and entertaining discussion on green living in all walks of life – even beauty!
As you can see by the picture above, you can chalk Kristen’s glowing complexion up to BOTH Neutrogena Naturals and her second pregnancy. Kristen shared that as a new mom and green living enthusiast, she’s proud to be a part of the Neutrogena name.
With their green packaging, natural ingredients, and eco-friendly manufacturing (the Neutrogena Naturals website is even powered via windmill), Kristen says this is the exact type of brand she would purchase. And she loves that it is available on drugstore shelves across the nation. While many green brands can only be found in “small boutiques in big cities”, Neutrogena Naturals are easily found by all, even her sister living in a small town in Michigan.
And it’s not all talk, Kristen claims she can give credit to Neutrogena Naturals’ Purifying Cream Cleanser for her bright, clear skin. She also admits “having babies” helps and that she’s “lucky that being pregnant makes (her) skin vibrant”. But pregnant or not, she regularly uses this wash and she says she discovered her key to great skin is “consistency and simplicity”.
After a day spent in “dragon makeup” on the set, she reaches for this face wash to thoroughly but gently wash it all away. The sulfate, paraben and gluten-free formula just makes her happy – it must be the fresh scent! And she makes sure to always wash every night with her beloved cream cleanser.
Those with oily or combination skin, can emulate Kristen by washing with the Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser for a more invigorating cleaning session. This wash isn’t exactly foamy, but it creates a nice lather that removes dirt and grime – and makeup too! It smells bright and clean and leaves skin feeling refreshed.
Kristen says she ends her routine by applying the Neutrogena Naturals Multivitamin Nourishing Moisturizer all over her face and neck to hydrate and soothe her skin while she sleeps. The ingredients are 97% naturally deprived and the formula is lightweight and does not clog pores. Still, it packs a moisturizing punch and is also packed with goodies like vitamins B, C, E and anti-oxidant omega bionutrients.
So if you are looking to treat your skin with natural and effective skin care, that’s worthy of a Hollywood star and easy on the budget, make sure to check out Neutrogena Naturals on your next drugstore run!
