Review - Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel

Price: Rs 849 
Product Description:
Hydro Boost Water Gel instantly quenches dry skin and keeps it looking smooth, supple and hydrated day after day. The unique water gel formula absorbs quickly, like a gel, but has the long-lasting, intense moisturizing power of a cream. It boosts skin’s hydration level and locks it in all day.
Naturally found in the skin, hydrating hyaluronic acid acts as a sponge for dry skin cells, moisturizing with up to 1,000 times its weight in water, resulting in more supple and smooth skin.
• Oil-free
• Non-comedogenic
• Purified Hyaluronic acid
• Wearable under makeup
My Experience - 
The Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel comes in a light blue coloured pot with a twist up lid. The packaging looks pretty, but I would prefer a pump bottle so, you don’t have to keep putting your fingers inside the pot to dig out the product. The packaging is quite bulky and not hygienic at all. However, it’s quite sturdy. I have dropped it a few times but, it’s still intact.


Texture and consistency - the texture is in between that of a gel and water. Its consistency is thin, runny and translucent. It absorbs very quickly into the skin as if your skin gulps in all at once, and no matter how much product you use, it doesn’t turn your skin greasy, which is a big yay. Once absorbed, it leaves your skin incredibly smooth.  The water gel does hydrate the skin very well. Just a pea-sized amount is all you need for face and neck, which means it will last longer.

There is a fragrance to this product, and it smells clean and fresh to me. I love the scent of this product. It’s mild and soothing but might not suit sensitive noses. It hydrates the skin so well. 

Pros :

  • Attractive packaging.
  • The jar is pretty sturdy as I’ve dropped it a few times, and it never broke.
  • Non-greasy, light weight moisturizer ; perfect for everyday wear.
  • Easily absorbs into the skin.
  • Keeps my skin hydrated.
  • Suits all skin types.
  • Dermatologically-tested.
  • Amazing texture.
  • Soothing smell.
  • No SPF.
  • A little goes a long way.

Cons :

  • Contains parabens.
  • Expensive.
  • Scent might bother sensitive noses.

Verdict - I think this moisturiser is awesome, especially for the daytime. If you have intensely dry skin, it may not provide the level of hydration that you’re looking for. However, for most skin types(except sensitive ones), I think you’ll be pretty happy with it.
