The foundation of HowtobeaRedhead.com is our ‘Redhead Friendly’ approval process. Everything mentioned has been tested by a redhead for a minimum of 10 days, and if it passes our criteria, it is featured; if something is sponsored, it can never get around our procedure. Ever. If we don’t like the product, or it fails, we will not post about it. If we didn’t have these rules, HowtobeaRedhead.com wouldn’t be the #1 (and only) trusted source for redheads. And that in itself is the most important to us.

The winter weather can cause our sensitive redhead skin to crack, dry out.. and can even cause rosacea. Did you know a redhead’s skin is thinner than most? It’s true.

Our newest obsession: Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream.

The approval process:

We tested this product every morning and evening for 14 straight days. It passed with flying colors.

Why we love it:

1. First, we trust the Neutrogena brand. We love their sunscreen, and it has been a line our skin has enjoyed too.

2. It smells heavenly and luxurious. It’s the perfect consistency — leaving the skin hydrated, yet not too dry or too oily. It goes on very smooth, with no greasy residue, and keeps skin extra hydrated.

3. Most retinol creams (more below) tend to be heavy, leaving the skin tight by the upper cheekbones. But, this does the opposite and we were so happy to discover this on the first day.

4. We see a little glow, and now call it our “Neutrogena Ultimate Glow“. It has a nice ring to it, right?

5. Most importantly: we see results. Our tester has slight signs of aging by her eyes, and the cream has definitely tightened the areas. You actually see results. 

The deal on retinol cream.

So, what exactly is retinol? It is a retinoid, a term used to describe vitamin A derivatives, that produces faster skin cell turnover. Meaning, the skin is getting rid of damaged cells so the healthy skin is what you see on top. Retinol has powerful results for treating skin issues ranging from acne to signs of aging, while also boosting the production of collagen.

It can be a bit overwhelming finding a product with retinol that actually works. The beauty aisles carry a wide range, but many are not ‘Redhead Friendly’ approved. Simply put: they’re too harsh on the skin.

Neutrogena’s retinol cream is packed with powerful moisturizing ingredients to leave skin fresh, nourished and plumped.

This rich moisturizing cream delivers hyaluronic acid and the highest concentration of Accelerated Retinol SA deep into skin’s surface quickly and effectively, to smooth the look of fine lines and instantly plump with moisture rich replenishers. Skin is left looking visibly smoother and younger.
Give it a try!

We recommend cleansing the skin with your favorite product. Follow it with a water spray, such as a rose or sea water, and lock it all in with the face cream redheads will adore: Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Regenerating Cream.

You won’t regret it. It’s absolutely perfect for winter-weather, and can be used as we transition into spring.

Rock it like a Redhead!
