Most Helpful Positive Review No irritation for contact wearers
First impressions, I like the scent, it's fresh with a slight floral hint. It was a light lather, but enough of a lather that my face looked and felt clean. After rinsing, my face was free of the day's grime and it didn't feel stripped at all. For being so gentle, I didn't believe that it would remove a full face of makeup. Boy, was I wrong, it removed foundation, brow gel, eyeshadow, liquid eyeliner, 3 coats of mascara, highlight, bronzer, and blush. I wear contacts and it has never irritated or burned my eyes. I will definitely put this on the list for the future.
I received this product through PINCHme for free in exchange for an honest review.
Most Helpful Critical Review Cleans but Dried out my face
I received the Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel for Free from Pinch.com.
After using the Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel for almost a week.. I can say this is not for me. It did remove makeup and cleanse my face pretty good. However, it also made my face extremely dry. I found myself putting on moisturizer during the day which I normally don't need to do. It smells good and cleans but dried out my face.

I bought this on Saturday night and used in and could immediately see and feel results. My skin felt so soft and clean. I'm hooked and will continue to use. Neutrogena makes great products.
Great product for cheap

Great product for cheap stands up against Clinique if not better
Jess from Greensboro, NC
Love this cleanser. It is so hydrating and makes my skin so soft! It does have a strong scent that I personally like but if you are sensitive to fragrance I would not recommend it.
SAVED my combo oily/dry skin
Ari from NJ
I've been trying different cleansers to keep my skin hydrated and nothing helped until I tried this one ! After one wash I felt hydrated and saw immediate results. I have acne prone combo skin and this did not irritate me at all. I just wish it was fragrance free :(
Gentle and effective
shopper678 from Illinois
I prefer gel cleaners to creams because they leave my face feeling clean and fresh and non greasy. This one doesn't dry out my skin and gets the makeup and oil off. I use it every night. It's gentle yet effective
Using it for a year
Areye from AZ
I love love love this face wash! It leaves my skin clean but not dry and stripped. I have been using it for a year straight day and night! I've used high end cleaners and use to have separate day and night cleansers, this one has replaced all of that! I have normal skin now (use to be oily) I will continue to use this cleanser only! So good

Love this. I'm over 40 years of age it does not make be oily or dry me out. Nor do I get any brake outs. < 3
Essential cleanser for my skincare routine
JJ Wever from New Jersey
I love this cleanser. Though I'm only a teen and I probably don't need hyaluronic acid in my cleanser, this makes my skin feel bouncing and it looks brighter. This has been a part of my skin care routine since I started taking skin care seriously and it has never let me down. It does hydrate, but with any chemical wash used on your face you still need to moisturize, hydrating or not.

Love the lather, and it cleans effectively. Would recommend.
Nice daily cleanser
Deb W from Vancouver, WA
I use this daily in the shower. It's a nice, light cleanser & has a lovely scent.
Allee from Silver Spring, MD
Compared to other cleansers I have used, I cannot tell that this is more hydrating than others. It's mild that it doesn't irritate my skin and seems to not clog my pores.
Gets all my makeup off
Kbeener from buffalo, NY
This is my basic cleanser to get my makeup off. It doesn't strip my skin squeaky clean and doesn't leave a residue. It also works, without leaving behind any traces of makeup.
ShariA from NY
Please make this fragrance free !!! Love the gel formulation however frangrnace is irritating for sensitive acne prone skin!
Awesome hydrating cleanser!
anonymous from Daytona Beach, Florida
I love this cleanser. It has a beautiful scent, it foams up nicely but most of all it does such an amazing job of cleansing my skin without being drying or irritating. Love it!
Hydrating Boost Hydrating Cleanser
anonymous from Englewood, NJ
I just started using this cleanser and I like it. It suds enough and makes my sling feel clean and not dry. I have been using it with a face brush every other day. I am pleased with the product.
Made my skin dryer than before
ZeldaSA from South Africa
I bought the Hydro Boost wash, face cream and the exfoliating gel. This has caused my skin to peel and become itchy. My face is worse off than before
Lafenn from Erie PA
Very gentle and a slight fragrance. Does a great job on my sensitive skin
started out great
tadaahhh from san francisco bay area
over time this cleanser became a bit harsh for my skin, my skin felt stripped after prolonged use of this cleanser. also the fragrance in this is a bit strong, reminded me of a "powdery" smell.
Loved this product
Hi from Hello
Will be re-purchasing I love this cleansing gel and I use it all the time it's nice and easy on the skin.
Very strong fragrance :(
SamanthaNY from New York
I love Neutrogena products, but this is the second cleanser that I purchased that can't use. The fragrance is so strong and immediately irritated my skin. Please make a fragrance-free cleanser for sensitive skin!
Does not clean make up & pores
ilovemyskin from California
I bought the entire hydro-boost line (facial wash, eye serum, gel eye cream, facial serum, facial moisturizer & facial mist spray). This was my second least favorite item from the line (first is the eye serum). After using a cotton ball with the Neutorgena Gentle Oil-Free Liquid Eye Makeup Remover for Waterproof Mascara this product does not remove any eye make up at all. It just causes my make up to smudge further all over my eyes. I end up having to reuse the eye-make up remover & another facial cleanser from a luxury brand to remove my make up. This also did not clean out my pores, so pores on my chin & nose became even larger. Very Disappointed.
Great Cleanser...maybe not for sensitive skin
TSide from Alabama
I bought this cleanser to see if I liked it better than the Neutrogena foaming cleanser. This is a good cleanser but I think I will stick to the foaming cleanser. I have sensitive skin and allergies. This has a heavy scent which smells heavenly but is a bit of a trigger for me. It is also a bit too harsh for me to use every day. It does a great job removing makeup and does provide hydration.
Never broke out until now
Xrayam from Nm
I use to love the original orange neutrogena so i thought this would be great. I was wrong. Not only does it leave my skin extremely dry but it also made me breakout like crazy around my chin and I'm someone who's only ever broken out when i was pregnant. Very disappointing.
Great For Oily Skin
Lupe from Nampa
I have always struggled with pimples and oily nose. But by washing my skin morning and night with this product both of those problems are no more. Now I only get pimples while on my period which is normal for me.
