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 wanted to love this. Needed extra hydration especially in the winter, and especially under eyes. I developed two bright red spots under eyes, which quickly became dry and flaky. This was the only change in skin care routine. Can't figure out which ingredient is the offender, though.

      Comments about Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream:

      The smell isn't horrible but it's not very pleasant either but once it hits the face you barely smell it. Anyone really sensitive to smell wouldn't like it. Though it works so amazing for extremely dry skin. I have had a terrible dry skin problem due to winter and this is the only thing that is getting it back to normal. I've had this product for about a week and my skin is back to normal finally!!!

      When I first used this, I still feel dry after applying it on. Which didn't bother me. The next day when I woke up, I notice that my skin was really silky and smooth.

          Comments about Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream:

          I recently got diagnosed with eczema, and needed a higher powered moisturizer than I was using. I checked to make sure this had no ingredients that are bad for eczema, and it has an ingredient that is really good for eczema. Granted I also changed my facial cleanser and foundation at the same time, but my eczema has been cut by half in just a few days!

            Comments about Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream:

            My face has always been dry, and I've used moisturizers but after an hour my face is already flaking. While at ulta I saw this moisturizer and figured it was time to stop buying cheap moisturizers. A consultant suggested not rubbing in the cream the first time to allow my face to really soak it in. So I rubbed it on my face, putting a little extra on my forehead and under eyes where I am dryest. I'll be honest, it was a bit uncomfortable because my face was so dry it did burn just a little bit. I was afraid I would have to return this the next day because it was just another product that was too harsh for my sensitive skin. But it wasn't long before I realized that my skin had absorbed all of the product. I looked in the mirror and I did not have any dry patches on my face. I have use this now for three days both morning and night. Today I went out with make up on my face, my face did not itch and I did not have any flaking on my forhead. I found the matching serum at another store yesterday, and because I love this moisturizer so much I decided I want to do the full skin care routine from this line. The cream Only burned that first time.

              I will continue to use until the jar is empty because of the hyaluronic acid component, then moisturize.

                  I love this stuff for the time when the regular Hydro Boost isn't quite moisturizing enough but the temperature hasn't yet dropped to the point when only a pretty heavy-duty cream is going to work. It feels nice and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. Sometimes I'll actually use a tiny dab of it to cut the thickness of my dead of winter moisturizer and freshen it up a bit. Overall a favorite of mine.
