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

    Comments about Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream:

    I bought this product because I have extremely dry skin and had been using the Ponds moisturizer. While I really like that one, it feels very heavy and doesn't absorb quickly. This one goes on smoothly, absorbs quickly, and doesn't feel heavy or tacky at all, all while really moisturizing. I love this stuff!!!

        I use this in the morning after I get out of the shower, then the smash box primer oil to prep my face for makeup. My face has no dry spots! I use it again at night when I cleanse my face. The great thing is, you don't have to use a ton of product! A little goes a long way! Don't waste 40 dollars on high end brands, this is affordable but surpasses all expectations! Thumbs up!

                Comments about Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream:

                I thought this product would be more like Cliniques moisture surge product. It just sits on the skin unlike the Clinique and it doesn't seem to hydrate deeply. I wouldn't recommend this product. I'll return to the Clinique.

                Comments about Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream:

                I've tried just about every gel or gel-cream moisturizer out in the drugstore right now and haven't had luck with any. Most of them contain alcohol pretty high on the list of ingredients and cause a burning sensation on my skin upon application and feels sticky. Not to mention, alcohol is drying so I try to stay away from it in my skincare. That being said, the fact that this moisturizer has no alcohol and is fragrance free really sold me. I knew it was worth a try. And I'm glad I got it. It feels really creamy going on, and aborbs well while still feeling hydrating. It doesn't feel sticky at all, and stays feeling nice and soft throughout the day. I don't know yet whether it's healing my dry, flaky skin but, it definitely smooths out the texture. I haven't tried it under makeup yet but I assume it will wear just fine. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I haven't been using it long enough to say whether it's my new holy grail based on how it helps my skin. But so far, so good!

                  This was recommended by my dermatologist, I have been using if for over a year as part of a morning and nightly routine. This is my favorite product in my entire bathroom. I slather it on my skin and return my face has never looked better! My only complaint is the size, I use it up in a month and the jar is thick plastic, I feel bad throwing it out so often. Wish it came in a bigger size. I cannot live without it!
