Today was a Free Mail Day, meaning I received some samples in the mail. The samples today were from Neutrogena and in total there were five.
- Makeup removing wipes
- Sunscreen for the beach
- Sunscreen for the face
- Men’s face cleanser
- Men’s sunscreen
I won’t talk about the wipes because it’s fairly obvious what they do –remove makeup.
The sunscreen for the beach is in a bright yellow squeeze tube feels very clean and not oily. It doesn’t seem to have any fragrance and that yucky sunscreen smell doesn’t seem to be present. The sample size I received will be perfect for my purse for those days that we forget.
The sunscreen for the face I have received as a sample before as well. It is a very tiny tube and rather expensive at the drug store as it contains something called Helioplex. Now, I haven’t looked into this portion of the moisturizing sunscreen but I am ASSUMING that it is the reason why one can wear the sunscreen so thin and light weight as it helps to penetrate the skin better. But, don’t quote me on that as it is just a guess.
The men’s facial cleanser smells just like a good smelling man, not too strong, but enough that if you get close you can tell he has taken care of himself. If your man has sensitive skin or eyes I honestly would be concerned about wearing it on the face. I don’t like the idea of fragrance on the face. Likely because I have always had trouble skin and I know that fragrances tend to make things worse. Also, I know several older men who have sensitive eyes and I believe having the fragrance that close to the eyes may be an irritant.
The men’s sunscreen is also fragranced but lighter. It does NOT smell like sunscreen though. It smells like man. The sample size is also good for keeping in the car or shop. I am not sure how the “man smell” will work with attracting bugs or not for the man who is working outside, if you have allergies to bugs I would be cautious with this the first few times I use it.
