Neutrogena HydroBoost

It feels like its been FOREVER since I’ve posted anything on here.  I’ve been trying to keep up with YouTube at the very least.  Although in general I’ve had to put a lot of this on hold while I finish up school.  Only 9 more months and I’m done!  Woohoo.


Anyway, on to the point of this blog post.  I received this Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel from Influenster to try for free and I wanted to give it a thorough testing before writing this post.

So what is it?  Its a light moisturizer focusing on hydration targeted to help dry skin thanks to hyaluraonic acid.  Not quite sure if that’s where it should have been targeted, maybe more normal to oily or combo skin, for my personal preferences it just wasn’t moisturizing enough.  It did totally help with hydration though, the skin around my eyes softer, more plump and my tiny fine lines were much less noticeable.


The downfall?  The scent.  Its a super strong scent, which doesn’t really make sense when the cream version of this is fragrance free.  Luckily after a couple of uses the scent isn’t really noticeable anymore.  But I wish it wasn’t there in the first place.

I’ve been using this more as a serum and less as a stand alone moisturizer because of the crazy dry winter we’ve been having.  This alone doesn’t come close to enough moisture for my ultra dry skin.  But as a serum with my favorite moisturizer on top, my skin has never looked or felt better!  Its definitely helps any dehydrated skin regardless of skin type.

So in the end – I probably won’t be buying this when its done but I might try the cream version.  Its a little on the pricey side for Neutrogena at 17.99-19.99 depending on where you get it, but it is on sale often so check it out if you’re interested in something to help hydrate your skin!

  1. I purchased the hydro boost cream for very dry skin because I noticed that one doesn’t contain fragrance. And it works great for me, hyaluronic acid is such a powerhouse ingredient! Great review.
