I’m the first to admit, I can be a little fickle when it comes to my skincare routine. I always have the best intentions, researching and investing in a solid routine, only to let it fall by the wayside two or three weeks later. Or I’ll get a new product and ditch my entire method just for testing purposes. But there is one product in my routine (or lack thereof) that I absolutely cannot live without – and that is a moisturizer. It’s so crucial that I have in my arsenal a perfect moisturizer, I have the driest skin ever and if I don’t moisturize then my skin gets really parched, flaky, and can even crack (at least in the edges of my nose). This summer I was introduced to Neutrogena’s new Hydro Boost Moisturizer at the perfect time – when I happen to be having a massive skin dry spell.
Earlier in August I attended the InStyle Summer Social where one of the brands present was Neutrogena. The rep and I really got talking about moisturizers and what our peeves were (like stickiness-yuck!) and what I like best (I’m a sucker for gel formulations). She told me that the Neutrogena Hydro Boost is lightweight, and that it’s oil free and absorbs quickly into the skin. So, naturally, I was pretty jazzed when I got my hands on an entire jar of their Hydro Boost by way of my gift bag.
I put it immediately to the test. I used this all over my face, focusing especially on the areas around my nose which were beginning to redden with dryness. I don’t normally allow my skin to reach this state of distress, but it was the middle of August and sweat has always exacerbated my dry skin. Even my ears were suffering. My skin instantly feel hydrated in that cool and clean sort of way. Amazingly, within three days of use, twice a day, my skin was back to full health. I’m dead serious, by ears healed up and my nose wasn’t dry at all. Even my foundation was going on smoother!
What makes Neutrogena Hydro Boost so special is that it is formulated with hyaluronic acid, which retains up to 1000x its weight in water. This refreshing water gel plumps skin cells with intense hydration, and locks it in. Utilizing hyaluronic acid, as well as olive extract which aids the skin’s moisture barrier against moisture loss – this product is designed to be a moisturizer of epic proportions. I am obsessed, I keep it right by my bed. Now, the Hydro Boost line actually features three different products – the Hydro Boost Water Gel with Hyaluronic Acid, the Hydro Boost Gel-Cream Fragrance Free for Extra Dry Skin, and the Hydro Boost Eye Gel.
