Most Helpful Positive Review My skin feels extremely nourished!
I?m a member of the Crowdtap NEUTROGENA? rewards program, and NEUTROGENA? sent me a samples of its NEUTROGENA? Hydro Boost Gel-Cream for Extra Dry Skin to review. My skin is normally very dry, uneven tone, dull, and overall lackluster. I absolutely love Neutrogena's Hydro Boost Gel-Cream for Extra Dry Skin! After 2 weeks of continued use, my skin feels extremely nourished and refreshed! I have finally found a moisturizer that leaves my skin completely hydrated, smooth, and glowing with a dewey finish, instead of feeling greasy and having an oily sheen like other moisturizers I have tried in the past.
Most Helpful Critical Review Unfortunate reaction
I purchased this product to combat some dry patches I've been having. I loved how it felt on the first day I used it! Very hydrating and made my skin so smooth. It worked well under my makeup too.
Unfortunately, I woke up with a rash all over my face and neck the next day :/ I'm not sure what's in it that caused this, but I have pretty sensitive skin anyway so It's not a huge surprise to me.
I would recommend trying this yourself, simply because it really did feel hydrating and smooth at first. If I hadn't broken out like this I feel like this would have been a new staple in my routine. My advice to anyone with sensitive skin is to test it on a small part of your face or neck for a few days before you put it all over, so you don't end up a itchy and blotchy mess.
Reviewed by 2110 customers Changed the formula so upset
Emmarosebud from California
I have super dry, sensitive skin and this has been my staple moisturizer for YEARS, but they recently changed the formula from a water gel to a gel cream and it is not the same. It no longer has that luxurious smooth texture that feels so hydrating. Kind of panicking on what moisturizer to use next
Neutrogena Gel-Cream works on Dry Skin
Golden Girl from Orlando, Florida
This product sells itself. It feels great after applying to dry skin on face and dries without feeling greasy.
Great for dry & sensitive skin
Melissa from Indiana
I love this. By far best moisturizer I've ever used. I have pretty dry & sensitive skin & this queens great! I tried switching to Olay & can't wait until I'm done with the tub so I can switch back to this! Consistency is so nice, doesn't clog my pores, & glides on smooth. My dermatologist even told me that this is a great choice when I told her this was what I was using. I'm obsessed & never should have tried switching.
Becky from Midwest
I was excited to try this as I've read so many positive reviews. I have dry, sensitive skin and did a lot of research on what products are supposed to help. After a few days of using this, I broke out horribly and my skin felt drier and tight. Very disappointed and will not be using this again.
This product worked really
Belly welly from Fontana, CA
I got this product for my mom who was having problems with dry skin and the original Nutragina hydro boost was good but she would often need to layer. With this she felt she had no problem with just this on
The absolute best.
Laurafy from Birmingham, AL
My dermatologist recommended this to me to help with dryness after some acne treatments. It's hands down the beat moisturizer I've ever used. I have very tight dry skin, and simply cannot go without a moisturizer. This is better than high end. Not sticky, not greasy, absorbs quickly, and it's affordable. I've repurchased like 4 times and will continue to do so.
jessie from philadelphia
I bought this product b/c I heard good things. I put it on the next day after my cream cleanser I always use. I have dry skin everyday. It made my skin greasy. Some of the product rolled off my skin. It even clogged up my pores. I'm not going to it buy again.
The only thing that works
Ddn from New York
affordable & it's the only thing that truly works on my terribly dry skin. I've tried high end brands and still was nowhere near satisfied!
Pam from Baltimore, MD
I have acne prone combination skin and this is the only moisturizer that works for me and leaves my skin feeling soft and healthy.
keishaa from CT
I'm oily/combination and in terribly acne prone. I also get very dry around my mouth area while still oily in the T zone. This moisturizer just soaks right into my skin and leaves it feeling supple and plump. 10/10 would recommend.
So hydrating and amazing for makeup!
Nat from Sacramento
I have normal/dry skin and this is amazing for it. What made me write this review is actually how it's performed with my makeup today. Since I have dry skin, I never ever wear matte foundations because they dry me out more. I always go for satin, natural or dewy finish. I accidentally threw my matte foundation in my bag today so I had to wear it and I had this underneath. I didn't even wear primer today and yet I am GLOWING even with this matte foundation on!!! For oily skin or combo people I'm not sure if they'd love this because it could maybe look greasy for them, but for someone with dry skin and who loves dewy looks, this is great. Makeup aside, it's just a great moisturizer on its own. You can feel the hydration/moisture sink into your skin as you apply it. It has a cooling feeling which I personally love.
BURNS sensitive skin
Jackie from Ohio
I wanted to love this product, because the SPF hydro boost water gel works pretty well (although burns a little from the fragrance I assume) as an everyday moisturizing SPF, but I can't continue to use this product. It burns terribly every time I apply, especially on my cheeks where I have rosacea. I have never experience burning like I do from this product. Never again!!
Annie from Raleigh, NC
Very gentle and works really well for my skin. Not heavy. I have a combo skin and occasional breakouts. Love to use in the morning or evening.
ARE from Knoxville TN
This is so hydrating for my flakey, dry skin! A tiny bit goes a really long way too??
Very strong perfume fragrance
Safitea from Florida
I wish it didn't have that stinky smell to it because otherwise it would be a good product. They put so much perfume in this that it's unbearable.
Wish I had read more reviews before purchasing
Sav from Alabama
I wanted to love this moisturizer so badly, but my skin looks horrible. I have had cystic acne in the past but have gotten it under control over the last two years. I read great reviews about this product and was excited because my skin has been exceptionally dry thanks to winter. Unfortunately within two days my skin broke out literally all over my face, even in places I've never had acne. A week later and I've officially given up. My face looks horrible and is in actual pain. As far as a moisturizer, this stuff is great. My skin IS soft, but the acne is not worth it whatsoever.
T's Reviews from USA
I have extremely dry skin on my face from the medication that I have to take every day and it drives me absolutely nuts I've used other greens before and they helped a little bit this Neutrogena hydroboost gel cream as soon as I put it on the dry spots are gone this is the best praying especially for people that have dry skin.
Avery from Denham Springs, LA
I use it in the morning and is not too heavy but adds so much needed moisture!
LR from omaha, ne
I've used other products in the hydro boost line with no issue for almost a year now, and I don't typically have issues with sensitive skin. However, this cream was new to me and I had an allergic reaction on my eye lids with this product. Will be returning.
Good at first
NMar from Georgia
At first this left my skin super smooth, then it started to feel almost like a burning sensation. I had to stop because it was every single time.
I have been using for years and love it.
Marge from Phil's
Love love love this product.
It feels great on my face.
I put it on before moisturizer.
JaLeRa from San Antonio
I began using this product after my dermatologist provided me with samples and absolutely loved it and have been using it ever since. Not much comes in the jar, but a little goes a long way and actually lasts for months. I use it all over my face but particularly under my eyes because of the hyaluronic acid. It keeps my skin soft, smooth and relieves dryness. Highly recommend!
I will never use any other moisturizer!
JAYD from Idaho
I LOVE this cream. I moved recently to a state with very cold and dry winters and my skin was suffering! I bought this cream and my skin felt hydrated instantly. I also love the glow that it gave my skin. Highly recommend it, it literally is the best cream ever!
Bought for a gift
Miss G from Hammond, LA
Gift recipient said it is good.
My go to
Kate from Cleveland, OH
This is always my go to. It saved my dry post winter skin shortly before my wedding for perfect make up and I use it every day during the colder seasons. I could probably use the normal (instead of extra dry) jar in the summer even. It doesnt feel heavy which is a huge plus for me but it does the job. My skin always looks and feels better after using this product.
