Today we’re looking at two of the product’s we received in our Rembrandt-sponsored tHERSday™ goodie package. (tHERSday™ is a night to prep and pamper, whether it’s a reward for a long, tough week, and excuse to catch up with old and new friends, or a night to prepare for the weekend’s festivities.)
The first product is Neutrogena Norwegian Hand Cream. Many hand creams use mineral oil/petrolatum or even dimethicone because it decreases how much moisture escapes from your skin. This product takes a different approach by using a high level of glycerine that acts as a humectant to pull moisture from the air and bind it to your skin. It’s surprisingly concentrated…a 2 ounce tube contains 200 applications which means it only costs you about 2 cents to moisturize your dry, chapped hands.
Neutrogena Norwegian Hand Cream Ingredients
Water, Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Stearic Acid, Sodium Cetearyl Sulfate, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Dilauryl Thiodipropionate, Sodium Sulfate, Fragrance (Parfum)
The second product is Neutrogena Deep Clean Long Lasting Shine Control Mask. The “long lasting shine” part comes from the inclusion of a patent-pending rice protein that supposedly absorbs oil throughout the day to help your skin maintain a matte look. (The patent is based on combining certain types of protein with cleansing agents. See “reference” below if you want to read more about it.) We also found it interesting this product contains salicylic acid to help speed cell turnover and keep your pores clean yet it doesn’t make any anti-acne claims so it’s not listed as an OTC acne drug product.

Even though the Beauty Brains don’t do traditional reviews, from time to time we like to share new products that we’re trying. We want you to know that we received free samples in exchange for a mention on our blog and that we’re not necessarily recommending you buy anything. We’re just sharing new product news; please do your own research before you buy.
