I was rushing into Boots over the weekend to pick up a sandwich before work, when my eyes got attracted to a display. I had seen this display last time I was in Boots, and I thought it was an excellent offer but just walked by as I probably had a basket full of other products already. However, this time I stopped and had a good look at the display, I saw the Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Daily Scrub which funnily enough, I had used the last squirt of it that very morning. Sitting alongside it on the shelf, with it was the Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Oil Free Moisturiser which intrigued me very much, after my current issues with dry skin and being in need of as much re-hydration physically possible!
The Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Daily Scrub is something which I used constantly throughout 2013, this is now my third tube of this scrub. I only was not repurchasing it this time as I was wanting to try something new, but then I thought if you really love a product and it is working why change?! The texture is nice and gritty but not too abrasive on the skin, the scent is seriously delicious and not too overpowering either - the perfect balance. It leaves my skin feeling very refreshed and smooth when I use it first thing in the morning, it also creates that clean blank canvas before applying moisturiser and makeup.
The Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Oil Free Moisturiser came in nice, basic packaging. It is advertised as being hydrating and refreshing, keeping skin care and soft and not clogging pores - sounds pretty perfect to me. I have used this for five days on the row now morning and night, and my first impressions are that I like it. It does leave your skin smooth as the texture is light, and I do feel like it has added some hydration back into my skin. I do once again like the scent of the product as it matches the scrub meaning that it is a lovely combination together. I am going to continue to use these products together to see if it helps to clear and prevent blemishes on my skin.
As I said before it was the offer which intrigued me to the stand when I rushing around in Boots, the products are usually £4.99 each which I think is good value for money anyway. I have never had second thoughts about paying that price before, as I have always liked the results and smoothness that the scrub has previously given to my skin. However, the offer was 2 for £5, you are able to mix and match from a variety of products from the different Neutrogena Visibly Clear ranges. The other ranges included in the offer from Neutrogena are the Blackhead, Spot Stress and Pore & Shine products. I was intrigued to try the Pore & Shine range, the purpose of this range is to mattify the skin and help tighten pores with tangerine and lime. As my skin is dry at the moment, I thought adding a mattifying effect product could result in it being even more dry, and the tangerine and lime scent did not smell as nice and refreshing as the pink grapefruit.
