Review: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel


Dry skin is never my issue until... we relocated to the US.

You see, I grew up in a country near the equator -- the Philippines. It's summer all year long. We do have rainy seasons but that's pretty much it. There are no major 4 season changes. Nope, no winter, spring, summer, and fall. 

With that said, the skincare products I've used are pretty much the same. Because of our address change, I knew my routine had to change for the cold winter months. That's how I've learned of the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Product Review

Neutrogena is one of the brands I've come to trust. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase a skincare product from them that claims to address an issue. Yup, I'm one loyal customer and I like their skincare line. Additionally, I'm happy that they are affordable.

Though I don't break out easily, I still place careful attention to the products I put on my face. 

During winter, I add the Hydro-Boost water gel as an extra step to my beauty regimen. I do this before applying moisturizer. 

What Neutrogena says

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel, a refreshing, lightweight water gel that instantly quenches and continuously hydrates skin. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, it boosts hydration and locks it in so skin stays hydrated, smooth and supple day after day.

Product Review

Pros: 
  • Absorbs quickly.
  • Very light-weight. Doesn't give off that greasy or oily feel.
  • Smells amazing. Crisp and clean best describe the scent. 
  • Applies smoothly. 
  • Pairs well with makeup.
  • Hydrating. My skin felt soft and healthy and refreshing.
  • Because it's a water-based formula, it doesn't clog the pores.
  • I have combination skin and this product doesn't break me out.

Cons: 
  • The packaging is big, thick. Unfortunately, it's non-recyclable. 

One tub lasts 3-4 weeks with daily use. It costs $16++ at Walmart.
