Most Helpful Positive Review THIS. WORKS.
Yes. This works sooooo well. I have really sensitive skin and for the past few weeks I have had a dry and sensitive face that feels vulnerable to the elements (wind, humidity, sun and heat damage, stress).
Hydro-Boost did the trick.
I have always liked Neutrogena's products - sunscreen, cleanser, etc. . . .
This one might just be my favorite -
Upon using Hydro-Boost my skin feels hydrated; the water gel is not heavy, it's not oily and it won't make your face look shiny.
You don't need to slather it on even - I just use a little each time and it immediately calms my face -
no redness, no burning - so far soooooo good
Most Helpful Critical Review Burns
I had the same problem as reviewer NayB. The first time I used it my skin felt a bit dry. After 3 nights of use my face felt burning as soon as I put it on. I do alternate between retin A and a mild glycolic acid cream because I have extremely oily skin. I thought this would help with the dryness that occurs in the winter when I use these products. The retin A and glycolic acid cause no issues in the summer, but really needed a moisturizer for the winter. Will be on the search for something else.
Reviewed by 3342 customers I think this could be good for others, but it was bad for me
Natalie H. from Washington, D.C.
This product came recommended by multiple people, so I wanted to give it a try! I have combination skin that tends to get reallyyyyyy dehydrated in the winter, especially under my eyes and on my cheeks, and I was desperate to increase my skin's hydration. This moisturizer did wonders the first few times I used it, but one morning I woke up with a swollen eyelid and red, itchy, dry skin. (I hadn't introduced anything else into my skin routine or into my home during that few days, so it had to have been the moisturizer that caused the reaction.) I had to take medicine to stop the reaction (though it was a very minor reaction in the scheme of allergic reactions, so don't be too concerned). The ingredient list for this does not look super agitating and has some good elements, so I'm not sure exactly why I had this reaction, but I unfortunately won't be using the product again. That being said, I think it could just be a personal sensitivity of mine, so I don't want to entirely blame the product. But if you have even slightly sensitive skin like I do...maybe don't use it. Or at least start out by using it on a small patch of skin for a few days.
My favorite face mask
Lex from AZ
This is the only mask I've tried that looks and feels like it's made a difference after I've used it. I have very sensitive, dry, eczema prone skin, and this mask makes it feel great after each use. Super soothing and hydrating, never had a bad reaction, and makes my skin look visibly nicer once I take it off. Pretty much the only face mask I buy.
Great lightweight moisturizer
Maddie from Fort Smith, AR
I use this product after washing my face in the morning or night and it always leaves my face feeling super soft. It's lightweight and dries quickly. The best part is that it's not oily at all and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. I bought the travel size first as a trail and loved it so I ended up buying the full size. Would recommend to anyone looking for a lightweight face moisturizer.
Better out there
Jessica from Iowa
Disappointing. Messy to get out of package and put on. Doesn't hydrate. When I take it off my face feels dry. No thank you. Would not buy again or recommend. Price point is good but other then that no thanks
Worked after one use!
Deb from St. Louis, MO
I love this product so much! I'm addicted to serums, but nothing else I've used has produced such instant improvements in the texture of my skin. I feel like I have 'de-aged' many years after using this. My skin looks plumped with hydration and smooth. I use it morning and night (it doesn't take much) along with a few other products that I have been using, like a collagen/peptide serum and vitamin C serum.
Made my face soooo oily!
Nina from PA
So bad I had to wash it off after 10 mins, I couldn't stand it.
Ason from Wisconsin
My skin has been super dry this winter so I was looking for something more hydrating than I normally use. I loved how 'wet' this product felt when I applied it, however, I started forming rashes/chapping easily on my face where I had dry spots. I wasn't sure if it was this product or not so switched off it while my chapping healed, and then gave it another shot. Instantly the chapping came back. Definitely pretty disappointed I couldn't finish the jar. Will have to give it another try in the summer when it's less dry.
Perfect for oily skin!
achrisman from Columbus, OH
I have really oily skin, so I feel like moisturizers are either too light, or leave my skin extra oily. This is neither of those! It leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated without it feeling greasy or too oily. Love, love, LOVE this product!
I'll NEVER use cheap products again!!!
Sydbc from Central Florida
This stuff literally makes my face feel like a baby's bottom! I read from a dermatologist that you should put this stuff on after you cleanse and while your face is still wet. It's amazing!
Using this product for a long time now. It's great.
Stefanie from Boca Raton, FL
After cleansing with Neutrogena cleanser and toner, then apply this product. Can use
day or night or both.
Love this product!!!
Michele8 from Long Island, NY
I have used several moisturizers and this one is the best by far. Its light and lasts all day
bimmergal from Chicago Illinois
This is awful- Ulta should offer Neutrogena's other option of the fragrance free gel cream. This is going back.
neutrogena stepped up their game!
nikki from texas
this product feels and works like you'd expect from a more expensive product! smells and feels great and most important works as intended
Hi from Washington, D.C
There's many bad reviews on this mask but it's actually great, it's very hydrating and it makes your skin feel great. It is a little confusing to put on if it's your first time but over all it's amazing, 100% recommend.
missgirl from FM, FL
applying this burns my skin! i thought that maybe that was a sign that it was working, but then a day or two later i notice some peels around my nose and eyes. i thought that might've just been sunburn, considering the fact that i used this during the summer, so i kept using it. the more and more i used it, the more and more my skin kept peeling. it looked so awful, i had to wear sunglasses everywhere i went.
maybe my skin just isn't compatible with what's in this product.
Mindy from Klamath Falls
Decided to try this after getting a sample. I really like it. It's so cool and a little goes a long way.
Marilyn from Orange County, CA
I really like this! A little goes a long way and my face feels so soft after I use this. It absorbs quickly and never leaves a sticky feeling on my skin. I think I found a winner!
Tracygrl72 from Morgan hill
Works wonderfully even on sensitive skin
Krissi from Burnsville,mn
i absolutely LOVE this product love the smell and the feel of this product!!!!!!!!! im very glad i finally picked it up
Not enough hydration personally
Alexandria from FL
I have normal skin, more on the dry side during colder season so I need a lot of hydration for my face. I usually use facial moisturizers that are a little thicker so maybe my skin just needs to adjust. This gel doesn't seem to give my skin the hydration it normally receives. It does absorb into your skin quickly which I like. I'll give this a couple more days of use to see how it changes! Most likely will not buy again.
doesn't agree with my skin
daph from georgia
gave me bumps and made my skin rashy and hypersensitive. doesn't work for me at all, so i had to return it
Good product, fragrance too strong
Anna from Ohio
I like this product and will continue to use it up. The smell is a bit strong for me- it lingers and I don't love that. I wish it was unscented.
ILpz from Dallas
Feels very light and cool on my face. Absorb nicely
Good on my oily skin, but scent is too strong.
Cat P from Durham, NC
This was a great daytime moisturizer on my oily skin. I loved the consistency and it helped my skin feel moisturized without a greasy feeling that I get with most other moisturizers. However, it has a very strong scent that I couldn't get over. I usually don't mind fragrance in my skincare products but this felt like applying fabric softener to my face. If this were unscented I'd totally buy again, but as it stands, I won't be repurchasing. I definitely recommend it to someone with oily skin who doesn't mind stronger scents, however.
Kris813 from TX
Packaging was bad, as soon as you open it everything just slides down and separates from each other. There's a lot of liquid inside which is normally a good thing BUT it gets pretty messy because the serum is very watery. Also, confusing to figure out which side to put the mask on. The hydration is okay but not worth the trouble it gave me.
