Best of Me...Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair
September 5, 2012
During my teenage years and through my 20's I would have never dared to go without makeup. I had pretty bad skin growing up and because of my olive complexion I was left with dark spots even after pimples were long gone. I would even cringe of the thought of going to the beach or pool because it meant my face might get wet and my make-up (covering those dark spots) would reveal my true skin. I basically hid behind make-up. It wasn't until one day my husband caught me putting make-up to bed (yes! I was that self-conscious) and asked me to remove it. I realized that no matter what my face looked like, my husband loved me no matter what--and that's all that mattered.
Throughout the years my face got better, but most importantly I learned to love myself for me, pimples or no pimples, dark spots or no dark spots. I was so excited when Neutrogena approached me to talk about natural beauty for their Best of Me campaign. Part of the campaign included sharing a picture of myself without make-up with all you folks. So there you have....me without make-up--lol. It wasn't as scary as I thought it would be.
I also got to try out one of their latest products called Neutrogena's Rapid Tone Repair. It's a revolutionary retinol line that was designed to address uneven skin tone in just one week. It also helps fade the look of dark spots and discoloration.
Have you had a chance to try it out? Also, do you ever go make-up free? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
