As we embark on a new season filled with summery nights, crickets chirping at night and...the list goes on and on, what better way to introduce summer with my Summer Basic Favourites featuring Neutrogena's Hydro Boost Moisturising Cleanser and also the Argan Five, Super Smooth Serum. 

I'm always keen to try out new brands and even products that have extended their range. In particular I have definitely tried out products from the Neutrogena and Argan 5 brand. They're good quality and effective for its own purpose and they're simply easy accessible at your local supermarkets, Priceline or even online shopping. 

For the super star products I look to feature today includes of the following: 
  • Neutrogena's Hydro Boost - Moisturising Foaming Cleanser 
  • Argan Five, Super Smooth Serum 

Both of these products have worked amazingly well for me after more than three weeks of testing it out and I would definitely look to re-purchase these! 

And now that summer is here, get your face and hair sorted with these lovely products guys! 

Check out my thoughts below to see what I really thought xx 


I am definitely impressed with the Hydro Boost range from Neutrogena and what better way to experiment with more of their products when it comes to skincare. We have here Neutrogena's Hydro Boost Moisturising Foaming Cleanser which is a facial cleanser that looks to gentle clear away the dirt and oil trapped on your skin after a hot day out in the sun. The product dispenses a luxurious type of foam soap which feels soft, fun and great to use. The lather of the soap is actually quite rich and fluffy at the same time which ideally looks to remove any of impurities underneath your skin but at the same time it does NOT even look to dry out your skin; and instead the hydrating agents present in the product looks to add the moisture back so that it helps your skin to feel much softer, cleansed, healthier and definitely smoother. (I always love it right after you cleanse your face, your skin feels so healthy and smooth!) 

The great thing about this product is that it has been dermatology tested, allergy tested and is of course oil-free (so it won't leave your skin feeling oily). The product is definitely suitable for those with dry or sensitive skin - so have no fear guys when using this product. It's very gentle and safe to use on all skin types. 

The bottle comes in a 150ml pump style which is quite easy to dispense and is very convenient to use in the bathroom or even whilst showering. As for the usage, you would only need one pump of this product which is more than enough. It's such a great feeling when a little goes a long way right? The product also has a lovely and pleasant scent which is quite bearable! I always love a product that smells good and one that I can use daily.

Many people think that when it comes to using "foam" based cleansers that it looks to dry out your skin...Not true! (Well, not applicable to the Hydro Boost Moisturising Cleanser by Neutrogena). It lathers so easily and does not dry your skin and if anything, this actuallly looks to give your skin more moisture. One skincare tip when using this product is that I would circular motions to massage the product onto my face, and then look to rinse off as normally.

For the price itself, it's very affordable and for 150ml, you get many uses out of it. I am really happy with Neutrogena's new foaming cleanser from the Hydro Boost range. I feel that my skin gets cleaned so well morning and night. I am definitely happy with this cleanser and would look to re-purchase this in-stores once I run out. 

  • RRP $14.99 
  • Available at your local supermarket such as Woolworths, Coles, Priceline

Featuring an effective hair serum that really looks to smooth, condition and reduce your hair frizz. If you're looking for a hair serum that can actually make your hair feel super sleek, smooth and shiny, you're looking at right now. 

The hair serum is actually formulated with a thermal shield which protects the hair against heat styling so hair blow drying, hair straightening - basically anything heat related...this serum has got you covered girlfriend! 

Another benefit to using this hair serum is that it's super light. It's not too heavy on the hair which is good because you don't want to look like you're super oiled up on the roots. The light serum actually looks to improve the condition of your hair cuticle hence leaving it looking smooth. 

I actually use heat-styling products everyday which means that my hair can get quite damaged without using any particular serums to protect it from the heat. Thank gosh for the Argan 5, Super Smooth Serum...my hair has been looking and feeling smoother. I am so happy with the deliverability of this serum and I can honestly say that it works amazingly well aka AMAZEBALLS! 

The hair serum is made for ALL hair types to use so it's also a great factor to using this product. How I would use this product would be after I have towel dried my hair and before using the hair dryer, I would whip out the Argan Five Super Smooth Serum. The fact that it's in a cute pump sized bottle, makes it easier to dispense it when needed. I would then look to glide my fingers through my hair from roots to ends. Depending on the hair texture and your hair length that you have, adjust the amount accordingly. Next, after having massaged the serum all throughout your hair, blow dry or style as usual! Voila! Alternatively, you may use the serum on dry hair if you're wanting to boost more shine and smoothness to the overall look of your hair.
