Neutrogena’s Serum + Moisturizer = Perfection

Last week, I told you about Neutrogena’s Rapid Tone Repair serum which is a skin illuminator, mattifier, and primer in addition to making your skin tone more even.

Well, the thing is that the serum is so matte that in extreme weather conditions it can be a little drying.

Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair MoisturizerBut, I’ve figured out what works really well with this serum: just one pump of the Rapid Tone Repair Moisturizer applied on top of the serum.  You still get some of the mattifying of the serum, but you get lots of hydration from the moisturizer and more of the amazing tone repairing ingredients such as Retinol and Vitamin C.  I use the night cream, and skip it during the day, but if you’re interested they do have a daytime version with SPF 30 – so that if you’ve lightened some freckles and dark spots, you can prevent them from coming back.

About $30 at drugstores.  Don’t forget to apply it to your neck and back of your hands too.

Annnd, yes, I’ve reviewed this line before and have used both the night and day moisturizer in tandem and they work great – I just came back to the night moisturizer now and couldn’t be happier with it.  This line is  a real drugstore find.

    I was asking about how to use the primer as a serum in last article last week. Doesn’t it need to go on last after sunscreen to have primer qualities or will it work on bare skin then sunscreen then makeup? Whew

    I find it is missing a dark eye shade but apart from that very convenient for travel, not sure im thrilled as it would be difficult to replace the mascara and eyeliner as they aren’t full size just the gloss is and its my favouritre ever

    That’s true, Kathy, but I think I would be happy just to have this set, and use my own mascara. I’m pretty picky about my mascaras anyway.

    Primer is definitely a last step, but this serum works well as a primer – so if you don’t have very dry skin, it ends up moisturizing and priming in one step. My sunscreen is in my foundation so I tend to skip that, but you could use the Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair Sunscreen day cream if you wanted on top of this serum.
