Neutrogena HydroBoost Review

Hey Beauties!

I’ve seen this product from Neutrogena blow up recently, and seeing that I love trying new skincare I thought I might as well give this a shot. My skin isn’t really sensitive so thankfully I can try different products and I will rarely get a vigorous reaction (knock on wood). Also the research and technology behind a brand and product is key before diving in.

My skin needs all the hydration and suppleness it can get so therefore that’s what caught my attention when I spotted this.

In case you didn’t know what exactly hyaluronic acid does:

We all have hyaluronic acid in our body. It’s a humectant that retains water in the skin which provides the skin with suppleness and plumping purposes. As we age this humectant does not perform as well as when we were much younger and using products to enhance this Moisture-binding ingredient is very important for the skin.

As per the website:

Hydration is the source of radiant and healthy-looking skin. It’s time to rethink moisturisation. Containing a Hylauronic Gel Matrix, Hydro Boost’s® new water-gel instantly locks in intense hydration and progressively releases it throughout the day. Your skin is so hydrated and supple it bounces back! Pretty smart right? *Value sales Neilsen (US Dec 2015 L52)

• Oil-free and smooth to the touch

• Lightweight and non-sticky

• Instantly quenches skin


My experience:

I purchased the Hydro boost Cleanser and Hydro boost moisturizer.


Hydro Boost Water Gel Cleanser


• Forget moisturisation, start thinking hydration.

• NEW from Neutrogena®, Hydro Boost® is your complete hydration regime. For skin so hydrated and supple, it bounces back.

• New Hydro Boost® Water Gel Cleanser, an innovative lightweight gel that activates with water to lather away dirt, oil and make-up while quenching skin with a boost of vital hydration

• Hydro Boost® Cleansers contain a patented cleansing technology combined with Hyaluronic Acid to cleanse effectively while protecting the skin’s barrier to help lock in hydration

• Suitable for sensitive skin.

This Cleanser has a liquid, thin consistency with no color/ transparent and feels very lightweight. I use this morning and night to cleanse my skin with 2 pumps each time I cleanse. This foams up superbly when mixed and lathed with a tiny bit of water. Once cleansed my skin feels extremely clean, no trace of makeup or dirt is left behind but also still feels hydrated and not dried out as the concept of this line suggests. It’s one of those cleanses that does the job and thoroughly cleanses my skin. I would repurchase this cleanser in the future.

I purchased mine at Clicks Pharmacy. Contains 200ml product.



Hydro Boost Water Gel Moisturiser

• Forget moisturisation, start thinking hydration.

• NEW from Neutrogena®, Hydro Boost® is your complete hydration regime. For skin so hydrated and supple, it bounces back.

• New Hydro Boost® Water Gel, a refreshing water-gel moisturiser that contains a unique Hyaluronic Gel Matrix to instantly lock in intense hydration and continuously release it as and when your skin needs it throughout the day.

• Instantly absorbing & intensely hydrating

• Refreshingly lightweight

• Oil-free

• Suitable for Sensitive Skin

This contains a gel consistency with a lightweight formula that quickly and effectively absorbs into my skin. I only use this at night as I am still using my Clinique moisturizer for the daytime. Once I’m complete with that I will use the Hydroboost day and night. To be honest this works perfect for the spring and summer times as it is very lightweight, non sticky or not heavy feeling at all and perfect for even sensitive skin. Even when I apply a little bit too much of this moisturizer it still absorbs very well into my skin and does not create a greasy thick film. The fact that this contains Hyaluronic gel matrix for optimal hydration is exactly what my skin needs now more than ever. My skin gets super dehydrated this time of the year (who am I kidding, almost all year round) and I definitely needed a product that contains hydrating ingredients. So far I have no complaints with this product and I’m pretty much happy with it.

I purchased mine at Clicks Pharmacy. Contains 50ml product.



Have you tried this line from Neutrogena? What are your thoughts?



Thanks for stopping by 😊

  1. I swear by their cleanser. My cystic acne cleared up after I started using it, and I’ve tried using other things here and there and I break out again, so I’m sticking with it!
