Beauty // Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel


What it is: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel

What they say: Hydro Boost Water Gel instantly quenches dry skin and keeps it looking smooth, supple and hydrated day after day. The unique water gel formula absorbs quickly, like a gel, but has the long-lasting, intense moisturizing power of a cream. It boosts skin's hydration level and locks it in all day.

How to use: Apply evenly to face and neck after cleansing.

What I think: I rarely, if ever, review a product without using it at least 3-4 weeks (usually longer) so that I can really see how it works over time.

This product delivered such amazing results in just 2 weeks though that I had to tell you guys about it... Seriously!

Hydro Boost Water Gel is brand new from Neutrogena and I was lucky enough to get a full size product to try as soon as it was released. I've been a fan of gel-creams for a while now (read my Garnier review here), so I was anxious to see how this one stacked up.

My skin has changed a lot in the past few years. I previously had extremely oily skin, and kept away from super think moisturizers a lot of the time. 

There were very few products that could keep both my dry patches hydrated and my oily patches from getting slick and breaking out. I've found that gel-creams are the perfect balance for my oily and dry areas.

Over Christmas break though, I was trying out a super hydrating cream because my skin was flaking like crazy, but it only caused more breakouts. Through the help of an aesthetician, a new cleansing routine, and this moisturizer though, my skin is almost completely clear again.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel delivers a ton of moisture right where I need it (for me that's my cheeks & jawline), but doesn't make my T-zone slick.

My red, inflamed blemishes began going down after one day. My skin felt smoother overall after just a few uses. And that dry, flaky problem I had... Yeah, it was gone after just one week.

I use this product every single morning now after cleansing my skin. I find it helps create a nice, hydrated canvas so my make-up goes on smoothly as well.

It soaks in quickly, feels amazing and cooling on my skin, and smells AMAZING! The scent reminds me of the ocean or being by the water, which isn't just calming on your skin, but also mentally calming.

Overall, I definitely plan on working this into my everyday routine.

Buy it online: Walgreens $19.99 for 47 mL
