Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Review, Ingredients, Price & Side Effects

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel is an award winning and best selling product from Neutrogena. It has been popular for containing the star ingredient, Hyaluronic Acid. But do you think it’s worth buying considering its price? Read on to know my thoughts on it.

Product Description:

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel instantly quenches dry skin and keeps it looking smooth, supple and hydrated day after day. Our award-winning and best selling water gel formula absorbs quickly and instantly delivers intense hydration. And it contains hydrating hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the skin and acts as a sponge, absorbing up to 1,000 times its weight in water. This formula leaves skin more supple and smooth.
Plus, it’s an oil-free moisturizer, so you can wear it alone or under makeup as a smooth, velvety primer.

My take on Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel:

Packaging: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel comes in a classy, sea blue colored glass jar. I like how luxurious it looks. The glass jar is quite thick and strong that it doesn’t break with just a fall. It’s obviously not travel friendly but is eco friendly.

Color & Texture: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel has a light texture, similar to the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask. It’s not exactly gel but is not a cream as well. It’s a water gel, just like its name. It has a got a pale blue hue to it, but goes on completely transparent on the skin.

Fragrance: This has a fresh aquatic fragrance. It smells nice but it can be a bit loud for those who prefer fragrance free products. The scent tend to stay on for sometime post application. Personally I like it’s unique scent.

Experience: You might have got the hint (with two jars in pic) that I love this moisturizer so much. I finished my first one and currently on my second jar. I cannot use cream based moisturizers on my breakout prone oily skin. So gels are a staple for me. This Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel has been a very lightweight yet hydrating moisturizer. It absorbs so quickly and leaves the skin incredibly soft and smooth with a satin matte finish.

I use this in both my day and night time routine since it’s SPF free. I tend to prefer non-SPF moisturizers as I can use them anytime. The Hydro Boost Water Gel does not pill and goes well under makeup and with other skincare products as well without any hindrance. Above all, it hasn’t broken me out. My aunt is also an avid user of this gel and she has been loving this on her dry skin. Typically this can be used by all skin types, be it oily or dry.

The Hydro Boost Water Gel has got Hyaluronic Acid which locks in moisture into the skin providing long lasting hydration. The only drawback is the price. But I don’t really mind splurging on skincare if the product works. For those having an aversion for the fragrance can try out the gel cream version which is completely fragrance free and is much liked by sensitive skin people.
