I have dry skin and as a result any products that provide hydration always pique my interest, as did the Neutrogena Hydro Boost range. The Neutrogena Hydro Boost range locks intense hydration into your skin and releases it throughout the day. I have been wanting to try it for a while but I just had quite a few products to go through so I thought it would be suitable to try in the warmer months. I tried the Hydro Boost Water Gel Cleanser and the Hydro Boost Gel Cream Moisturiser at the same time for best results.
HYDRO BOOST WATER GEL CLEANSER
I used the Hydro Boost Water Gel Cleanser so that I could get the best results with the gel cream moisturiser. Just like the cream this cleanser is also very lightweight and applies easily onto the skin. The cleansing technology is combined with Hyaluronic Acid (HA is known for being really good at holding onto water) which protects the skin and also locks hydration. Most of our HA supply is in our skin but as we age our HA levels redistribute within our bodies. So it helps to apply it on to your face to boost your skin and fill out those fine lines. I also find it quite suitable for summer because it’s lightweight, products that are heavy and dense make me sweat a lot in summer due to the heat and humidity.
HYDRO BOOST GEL CREAM MOISTURISER
The Hydro Boost Gel Cream is recommended for extra dry skin i.e. me! With this product being a cream, my expectation was that it would be quite heavy and dense when in fact it’s very lightweight and soft. It applies well onto the skin and gives my skin a dewy finish. My skin care routine includes a serum as well but I don’t feel like I have to wear it with this product, it hydrates and moisturises the skin adequately on its own. I use it only in the morning and I think it’s suitable for summer because it’s so light on the skin especially during this current heat wave. The key ingredient in this product is the Hyaluronic Gel Matrix and this what enables the cream to lock in hydration and release it throughout the day. If you have sensitive skin, the cream is fragrance free which makes it more suitable for you. I recommend it for summer to combat the heat and humidity.
