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 cannot wait to repurchase, but a little goes a long way so it will be a while! My forehead and nose were very dry and flakey before using this but disappeared after the first use. Still looks fine on rare days where I goof and forget to apply!

It's great & fast absorbing! I even use it to help other creams (or even shea butter) absorb faster. Stopped my skin from cracking open. More moisturizing than the other version for sure.

        Comments about Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream:

        This is my new favorite skincare product! I've been trying to take better care of my skin and heard about this product through a dermatologist (Dr. Dray) on youtube. I'm so glad I bought this! I use it morning and night after I've washed my face. While my skin is still damp, I use a pea sized amount all over my face. I then follow up with another moisturizer. It sinks into the skin and leaves it feeling so nourished! I used to have dry patches around my nose, but this got rid of them! It also dries down matte, which is nice. I will continue to repurchase!!

        Amazing and fast results after a horrible face first fall.

          • Daily Use

          Comments about Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream:

          I had been using the product daily each morning, and occasionally twice a day if I had worn and removed make up that particular day. Loved it because it absorbed quickly and wasn't greasy. I was unfortunate to take a face first fall out of my truck due to an ice storm. I had severe "road rash" on the entire right side of my face. I applied the Hydro Boost every couple of hours to keep the areas ftom drying
          & cracking. I was certain I would have red patches, at best, for months. 9 days later everything is completely healed and no evidence of my unfortunate fall remains and I had thick scabs to begin. Very thankful for this product!

          New Favorite!!!

          By Tori

          from Ohio

          Comments about Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream:

          Listen, ya girl has super dry and sensitive skin. I've never really struggled with acne, but my skin is so sensitive if it doesn't agree with a product it will cause a breakout. I've used Clinique moisture surge for 5 years, and never thought anything would compare to that but I have stopped purchasing the Moisture Surge and have switched to this. I always felt that the one i was using just didn't sink into my skin well enough, just never really wanted to mess with looking for something better but THIS IS IT. They are almost identical in texture, but this one has no fragrance and it sinks into my skin like a DREAM!!! Not to mention the price difference!!!

          Comments about Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream:

          I bought this product because I wanted to take preventative measures for aging. I find out that it had hyaluronic acid. I tried the face mask first and loved it so I bought this.
          I will tell you Colorado has the dryest air ever. I have had dry patches on my cheeks for a few weeks before i bought this. When I first used it, it made my skin feel a bit tight. But after I woke up in the morning, my skin felt better. The dry patches came back this week after not consistently washing my face for a day or two, so I used this last night. Once again I have woken up with soft skin. My dry patches are almost gone. I have extremely sensitive skin and I dont think this has made me break out. (When i first tried this it was that time of the month so I think any blemishes were horomonal). A little goes a long way so I use maybe 2 pea sized amounts for my whole face.My boyfriend has also told me my complexion looks brighter amd more even. At almost 30 years old, this is a good buy.

            Comments about Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream:

            I have been using this for about a week as my nighttime moisturizer (I'm not inclined to use it during the day as it does not have SPF.) The hyaluronic acid is the key here- it seems to really lock in moisture without being greasy or sticky.

            It's not fancy, but it doesn't have to be. I have tried some of the more expensive night creams/moisturizers out there, and Neutrogena is consistently just as good or better than all of them. An excellent moisturizer at a great price.
