HANDS DOWN TO THIS MOISTURIZER. 👀🙌🏻 Notable Ingredients and Claims— This moisturizer highlights Sodium Hyaluronate as a skin humectant, Prebiotics as an amplifier to produce natural HA, and Trehalose for moisture ressurection properties in giving hydration lock. It is alcohol free however not silicone free. Other packaging claims include it's said to be dermatologist tested, oil free, hypoallergenic, and non-comedogenic. Packaging — Made out of a heavy glass jar with 50 gr. Lids included, however not provided with a spatula. Texture and Fragrance — Texture is likely gooey water gel, very lightweight and easily to absorb on skin. Fragrance is quite strong, you can remember it like that hair wash that you usually meet in your bathroom. Effects— The big picture claim of this moisturizer is to give hydration and locking the hydration at the same time to your skin up to 72 hours. I can't say it really works until 72 hours since I never leave it that long, but I can say it locks up my hydration really well without giving any negative reactions for almost a day. My skin feels hydrated, moisturized with a velvet-matte finish, yet "sealed" by the silicone on top of my skin even to the time when I have to stay up late (which at this time my skin tends to get greasier). I say this is a very ideal moisturizer for a resilient oily skin like me.... Read more

Notable Ingredients and Claims— Not fragrance free, not dimethicone free. Packaging — Glass jar are fragile to break if not kept properly. Texture and Fragrance — Fragrance might be very stinging on preference (to me, it's very stinging). Effects— Silicone might clog the pores if your previous layers consists of oils. Sometimes, I tend to get slight breakout if I don't double cleanse in the morning after using it.... Read more

This product has been on my wishlist, but I don’t know if its the fragrance or the alcohol but it stings my face pretty horribly. I don’t get rashes or bumps after, it just stings at every use. Its sad because it performs very well on my oily face.... Read more

First, the packaging is really pretty, the sweet blue, simple, it's not noisy. Then the texture is as the name implies, watery gel with a fresh aroma, on my nose, it smells soft, reminds me of the smell of fresh baby bath soap. At first I thought it would be sticky, because when you apply it the gel turns to sticky, sticky like skin hit by sea water, hehe .. but a few seconds later it absorbs it really fast. I was impressed with how smoothly it went on and was completely invisible. The good thing is, my skin doesn't feel attractive at all. When I apply the gel, it also gives a cooling sensation, and it's really light on my skin, I don't feel like using anything. Then the miracle, a couple of hours later, I looked in the mirror, and surprise, no dry, flakey skin. My skin for almost 2 months is very dry, dehydrated, and this Neutrogena helps my skin which is like the Sahara desert. The moisture lasts until morning, wake up, my skin is not oily, it is not dry. Very happy to have skin that is moist and smooth in the morning. This is the first time I've used a Neutrogena product, but it certainly won't be the last.... Read more

This product was kinda surprising. It's nice to touch, it's fragrance is really light and it doesn't last long although it moisturizes for days making you glow! The texture of this gel is AMAZING, specially for hot summer nights. It also has a matifying effect that helpsba lot (both during night and day) My skin just loves it!... Read more

This Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel claims to instantly increase the skin's hydration level and enhance the skin's natural ability to hydrate itself. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel has a pretty strong scent on my nose when i first use it, but after a few times it doesn't really sting. The texture is in the form of water gel as the name water gel, which is easy to absorb and very light on my face. Provides a soothing sensation when applied to the skin. My face immediately feels moist after using this water gel. This moisturizer can help to instantly increase the skin's hydration level as claimed by Neutrogena. My face feel hydrated, supple, and doesn't look greasy when applied. Very suitable for those who have skin types dry and oily. Worth to try!... Read more

Nothing special about it, wish there were more ingridients for soothing and antiaging. For winter time and my combo skin i mix it with 3 drops of rosehip or tamanu oil for more hydration. Not frangrance free too… But overall a decent moisturizer for oily combo skin.... Read more

I absolutely love this moisturizer for several reasons. First off, it is so light and still so moisturizing. It goes on like cool silk and just makes my skin feel so nourished. I love the smell, which I know some folks will stay away from because of how fragrances interact with their skin, but I really enjoy the scent. I think it’s perfect to use in the summer if heavier moisturizers feel like too much on the skin, but honestly you could use this any time. You can find this moisturizer in any pharmacy in the US, so it’s not difficult to find here.... Read more

The packaging makes it seem like there is more product than there actually is, which I know is the style of the container but I still feel a bit disappointed as I’m nearing the end of the moisturizer. It’s still a pretty great choice for me and I’ll definitely buy this again, me and my skin love it so much!... Read more
