Neutrogena Bright Boost Illuminating Serum

The Bright Boost line is interesting because it has been called “The Skincare Line for Millennials Made By Millennials.” Apparently, Neutrogena had several women scientists younger in age create this line for themselves and women like them who might be experiencing a change in their skin. Neutrogena wanted to provide a product that would be great for mature skin and skin that is changing from what you might have had in your twenty’s.

Personally, I think that this is a product line made for any woman regardless of age. Simply because the ingredients are so great.

First up…it’s a serum

What is a serum? They are a really lightweight moisturizer that is crammed packed with great ingredients. They are at super high concentrations making them super effective. They are NOT like your typical cream moisturizer. Instead, they are a more watery liquid consistency. They are also different from your typical moisturizer in that they tackle specific issues with your skin…like wrinkles, dullness, redness, you get my drift?

Secondly…it’s for boosting up your brightness

What does that mean? They help to even out your skin’s tone. Meaning they help to reduce the appearance of any dark spots, or sun damage you might have. Also, if you have any skin conditions like melasma they can be beneficial in helping with them as well. 

How does it work?

It contains a couple really good ingredients…

Turmeric Extract This one might surprise you if you aren’t really into skincare research but turmeric is for more than your curry. It actually has antibacterial benefits and it is an anti-inflammatory. This is great for those girls with skin conditions like eczema and rosacea. It is also good for acne prone skin because it is a naturally occurring antiseptic which will gently exfoliate your skin. This will also help keep bacteria (the cause of acne) from spreading. Turmeric also helps to lighten your skin. 

Neoglucosamine It is a “non-acid amino sugar.” This makes it an awesome product for those fine lines and wrinkles that make their way onto our skin. It will gently exfoliate your skin taking away those and any dark spots evening out your skin tone. Essentially resurfacing your face. It will also plump up your skin and smooth out your skin. This is also the main component in hyaluronic acid and ya’ll know I love that stuff.

Lastly, what was my reaction to this product?


Girls, of everything that I got (skincare related) for Christmas this is my favorite. I really love using it. I have added it as a permanent member to my skincare routine. In fact, of everything I got I would without a doubt re-buy this.

Just a word of caution.

if you have never used this or a product like this definitely “ease” your skin into it by using it every other day at first. Just until you let your skin become accustomed to the ingredients. To be honest my face is used to products like this because I have been a faithful retinol user but I still had to ease my face into this. 

The bottle advises you to use this morning and night (which is what I do) but it took me a minute to work up to that. Don’t be surprised if it takes you a few days too!
