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!

  1. Awesome @tyna – I love Kristen Bell too! The girl is right…consistency is key. Neutrogena’s commitment to being green even all the way to powering the website is really admirable. Love it!

  2. This is so cool! I kind of wish you had snuck a baby sloth in with you and filmed Kristen’s reaction, but I guess we can’t have everything. Neutrogena is such a good brand–not surprised Kristen is paired up with them.

  3. What a cool event for a brand I love, hosted by an actress I love, too! Thanks for the recap, @tyna . Love the photos!

  4. Sold, hook line and sinker @tyna! – I love Kristen Bell too and also have bee a Neutrogena fan for eons.. I’m looking forward to checking out this Naturals line.. Yay!

  5. I frigging love Kristen Bell and while I’m sure her skin looks amazing 90% due to incredible genetics, I would pretty much smear anything (goat’s blood, sloth dung, that weird neon yellow chicken gravy all school cafeterias serve—*anything*) on my face if there was a chance it could look amazing as her skin, so I will probably pick up some of this cleanser the next time I’m at Target.

    Great post, @tyna!

  6. I am a big fan on the purifying cleanser. It is a great workhorse that can do toe to toe with many of the department store cleansers. Plus, it is green!!

  7. @tyna I am sooooo jealous!! Kristen Bell is a goddess!! I am a massive Veronica Mars fan and love her in everything that she is in. How wonderful that you got to attend this event. I am a long time Neutrogena fan but somehow have not yet tried this line. But thanks to your great review and the angel Kristen Bell’s glowing endorsement I am heading to the drugstore now. It sounds great!!!
    Thanks from a fellow Marshmallow!!

  8. I have to chime in here! I was able to test out Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Cream Cleanse. I had heard good things about it, so I couldn’t get my hands on it for myself! It’s creamy for starters and it really did a good job as it washed away all my makeup from the day. I noticed it didn’t leave my skin feeling tight afterwards.. it really felt soft and clean. It’s rich, creamy formula with Willowbark bionutrients which do get down to the nitty gritty! And one more noteworthy thing, The website at Neutrogena is self-sustained and completely green.. check it out! I’m just as impressed with this story as I am with the product.


  9. I received the Multivitamin Nourishing Moisturizer. I love how natural it is and how good it feels on my skin. It’s nice to know that my skin is absorbing all oIf i had the choice, I would make it less fragrant. It’s pleasant, but everything is making me sneeze these days. Like Kristen, I also enjoy it for night. It’s great because there’s no SPF so it’s easy to slap on and zzz! I love Kristen’s preggers look too…super stylish!

  10. OH SO JEALOUS!!! I bet she was perfect and amazing and smelled like sunshine and hugs!!!!

    I was a Neutrogena fan in high school, but other flashier brands got my attention. I’m really low on moisturizer, so I think I might try the Multivitamin Nourishing Moisturizer. Especially since Kristen is the brand ambassador…I never follow things because a celebrity says to, but she could tell me to dye my face purple and I’d be like, “OKAY, SURE, CAN WE BE BEST FRIENDS NOW?” (cause we’d totally be besties. If we ever met.)

  11. Thanks for sharing this review to us. Hearing this positive views from you encourages everyone to try also this products. What’s important here is that your goal is to make your skin clean and clear. Maintaining the moisture in your skin and keeping hydrated. Thumbs up to this.
