Today’s post is dedicated to my best friend as it is her birthday today. She strongly suggested this product to me and to be honest I absolutely love it and it is part of a my skincare routine. Neutrogena is a well known cosmetic brand that has amazing products for skincare. One of my best friends, 8 or 9 months ago, suggested to buy and try this product out. Fast forward to today, I literally swear of this water gel.


Neutrogena claims:

Neutrogena® HYDRO BOOST® Water gel has a refreshing, light-weight gel formula with Hyaluronic Acid and Olive Extract that doubles your skin’s moisture in just 1 hour. With innovative Progressive Release System, this intense moisturiser continuously releases moisture for a full 24 hours, for soft and supple skin with a healthy-looking, radiant glow.

Overall Thought

I personally have dry skin with a minor case of eczema. In my attempts to settle my acne without any harsh treatments, I decided to change my face cream. This face cream has helped settled down my acne so much. I have noticed the size of the current ones reduce so much so I know once I fix up my diet again my acne will be basically gone. I know that hyaluronic acid is one product that truly helps with existing acne.

Neutrogena claims that “this intense moisturiser continuously releases moisture for a full 24 hours, for soft and supple skin with healthy-looking, radiant glow.” I do get that “soft and supple skin with healthy-looking, radiant glow” however I don’t get that full 24 hours moisture. I notice that shortly after when the moisturiser is soaked into the skin, that my skin is dry and asking for more. Therefore, I actually have a second moisturiser that helps lock in the moister I want. The more dry my skin is the more my facial eczema worsens and acne breaks out even more.

Nevertheless, this product is amazing and I love it so much. This product is definitely staying a part of my skincare routine and I will never go anywhere without. I strongly suggest this product if you are looking for a new face cream. Just keep in mind that you need to experiment on the quantity until you find the right amount of moisture. There is no suggestion or rule of thumb on the packet. Or you could use a second moisturiser, like me.

If you react to this product badly (rashes, itchyness and so forth) please discontinue use and consult with your medical professional as soon as possible. It is strongly suggested to test this product on a small portion of your skin (try place some on your hand) and wait a few days to see how you react to it.
