Comments about Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel SPF 15:

I started using the regular hydro-boost moisturizer before I convinced myself to go for the one with spf protection. I walk about 3 miles every day, and this product makes me feel better about exposing my skin to the elements. My only complaint is that it does tend to make my skin shiny if I wear it without makeup. Under makeup, you cannot tell at all. I have combination skin that's prone to breakouts and I'm happy to see this moisturizer does not cause me to break out at all. That's the best part about using any Neutrogena moisturizer.

    Comments about Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel SPF 15:

    I was excited to try this line because I've heard so many positive reviews, however I am highly disappointed! For starters this product is pretty expensive, but I purchased it anyways because I was in search of a moisturizer that was hydrating and had SPF in it. Upon my first application, my skin absorbed it quickly and it immediately dried out my skin. I had assumed I applied too little, so I reapplied more and felt the same results. Throughout the day my face did not get greasy, but it was in fact dry and lacked moisture. Needless to say, I will be returning this product, I'm pretty disappointed :-(
    Just an FYI I have sensitive, combination skin.

    I want to give it 5 stars

    Comments about Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel SPF 15:

    I adore this! It feels sooooo good. Lightweight, clean feeling, instantly sinks in. However, if you are really dry like me you'll find yourself reapplying of just needing a little more moisture a few hours later.

        Comments about Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel SPF 15:

        Living in Tucson, AZ one's skin gets even drier as we get older. I had been looking for an effective and non-greasy moisturizer and this product is the best! It absorbs quickly, has a wonderful, cool feel to it, smells great and you can put foundation over it almost immediately. It's not a big tube, but a little goes a long way.

        Its good sun protection for the face. But you need to keep apply it. Because it seems not to stay on for very long.

          Comments about Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel SPF 15:

          I love how lightweight this moisturizer is. It has a very nice scent to it but its a light scent, nothing over the top. I mainly bought it because it was a water gel formula plus it has spf for summer but I think I will use year round! Would def repurchase because it doesn't break out my acne-prone combination skin!

            Comments about Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel SPF 15:

            I like this product because it is an oil free yet moisturizing layer, for under make up. It has sunscreen and especially in the summer, I don't want a heavy layer as I wear other products as well, including foundation most days. The fact that it's light but has hyaluronic acid is the clincher for me, as that is a recommended ingredient for pulling moisture to the skin. I would like to see a higher SPF but my foundations usually have sunscreen too, so it seems like enough.
