Introducing Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream for extra-dry skin, a fragrance-free, lightweight gel-cream that instantly quenches and continuously hydrates skin. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, it boosts hydration and locks it in so skin stays hydrated, smooth and supple day after day. Applies effortlessly, absorbing quickly into skin without leaving behind an oily or greasy feel.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream:
  • Instantly Quenches Skin
  • Contains Hyaluronic Acid, Naturally Found in Skin
  • Fragrance-Free
  • Clinically Proven to Keep Skin Hydrated for 48 Hours
  • Oil-Free
  • Dye-Free
  • Fast-Absorbing
  • Non-Comedogenic
  • Ideal for Extra-Dry Skin Types
Hydro Boost hydrates skin through an approach of replenishing water and rebuilding skin's barrier, leveraging two key ingredients:
  • Purified Hyaluronic Acid- Naturally found in skin, it delivers pure boost of hydration. It acts like a sponge for dry skin cells, absorbing up to 1000 times its weight in water and progressively releases water back into skin, keeping skin hydrated and supple throughout the day.
  • Olive Extract- Known for its protective, moisturizing and anti-oxidant qualities, it is a complex combination for fatty acids, which is similar to skin¿s natural moisture shield. It integrates into skin barrier, forming a structure that protects skin from excessive moisture loss. It also helps leave skin feeling soft and smooth without tackiness.
Suitable for Day & Night Use After Cleansing.
Apply evenly to face and neck after cleansing

    Instant improvement for my dry, flaky skin

      Comments about Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream:

      I'm 31 years old and pretty good about taking care of my skin. I see a dermatologist, get facials and abide by a daily skincare routine: gentle cleansers, daily moisturizer with broad spectrum 30 SPF, a vitamin c serum, dermatologist- prescribed retinal and a night cream. However, I do have the bad habit of taking hot showers. As a result I have very dry, flaky skin.
      I was using IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream hoping it would improve my dry skin, but my skin was still flaky and difficult to apply make-up to. I tried a lot of products trying to improve the dryness of my skin- even slathering my face in Aquaphor. However, this product has provided me with the quickest turn-around. My skin is no longer uncomfortably dry. I have a little bit of flakiness still, but I've only used this product three times, so I hope to see continued improvement. I definitely recommend.
      Please take note- this particular product is fragrance free, but other products in the Hydro Boost line are not. If you have sensitive, dry skin, I recommend sticking to the non-comedogenic, fragrance- free formulas. I checked all the ingredients in this product using the Paula's Choice ingredient guide and all of them rated "good" to "best" with the exception of the very last ingredient (the ingredient with the smallest amount) sodium hydroxide. This ingredient rated average and is used as a pH stabilizer, so I'm not too concerned about it.

        I used this product to help get extra moisture after chemical peels and have LOVED it. My skin is not flaky and the product is not heavy on my face and doesn't feel like it's clogging my pores or leaving me with greasy spots.

        Comments about Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream:

        I use this product in the morning and night with either the Neutrogena ultra gentle creamy cleanser or Cerave Hydrating Cleanser. I find this combination of cleanser and moisturizer work well together! I have been dealing with the unwanted side effects(dryness,flakes,irritation) of starting Tretinoin(retin-a), and this cream feels like Heaven on my irritated skin! It instantly soothes my face and makes it feel very hydrated. I also love how easily it spreads and applies to my skin, and how it feels on my face in general and under makeup. I don't normally like to spend this much on a facial moisturizer, however this one is worth it in my opinion!

          I live in AZ and my skin drys out quickly. Thus product gives a surge of moisture without a greasy feeling. It works well under make up.

              I've bought this moisturizer again and again, it's the best. For a 'drugstore brand' the price tag is a little high but I promise it's worth it. I've even turned my boyfriend onto this product now he also uses it

                Tried this along with the serum and I honestly was not impressed and could not tell a difference in my dry skin. I had a coupon so I tried it out, but I definitely will not repurchase. I usually use Bliss products and they work wonders!!

                I have tried everything over the years to help my dry skin during the winter months. My skin would be so dry that it would peel, especially around my nose and mouth. After a week of using this, I haven't had one flake on my skin. I absolutely love it and will continue purchasing again and again! Pair with their new hydrating cleansing gel and you can tell a huge difference.
