Introducing Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel, a refreshing, lightweight water gel 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 Water Gel helps:
  • Instantly Quench Skin
  • Contains Hyaluronic Acid, Naturally Found in Skin
  • Clinically Proven to Keep Skin Hydrated for 48 Hours
  • Oil-Free
  • Dye-Free
  • Fast-Absorbing
  • Non-Comedogenic
  • Ideal for All 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.

      Wonderful

      By SYG

      Comments about Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel:

      I've been using this product for several years now. I know that everyone's skin is different from the other but I absolutely love this. I loved it even more when I was pregnant and was using a cheaper, different product. I wasn't working and thought I would save money and not have to buy this...wrong. It's worth getting. The other product dried my skin out and left dry patches all over my face. I went back to my water gel and it cleared up in just a couple days. This product is on my "stock pile" list.

          Comments about Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel:

          I really like this product! I am really into beauty products but I don't know as much about skincare. I was using a very expensive moisturizer and when I ran out I needed a more budget friendly option- and this is it! I replaced my moisturizer with this (although I am not entirely sure this is a moisturizer per say?) When I use this and my daily cleanser religiously, I found my acne cleared up a lot! It feels a tiny bit sticky on the skin when first applied but I am so glad I found this product- it's high end quality for low end price!

              Comments about Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel:

              I was looking for a moisturizer that is great for dry skin but also water based because I use a water based foundation. Any moisturizers meant for super dry skin are not water based but since I use a water based foundation I needed a moistuzier that wouldn't cause any chemical conflict but still help my super dry skin. This did the trick.

              HORRIBLE - RUINED MY SKIN

              By laney

              from Connecticut

              Comments about Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel:

              I have been on various acne pills for months & regularly see a dermatologist. My skin has transformed completely over the past year. However, right after I started using this product my entire face broke out completely. Even a week after I stopped using it my skin is still detoxing from it. I don't have sensitive skin by any means but this ruined my skin.

                Comments about Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel:

                Use to use a high end face lotion that eventually turned into $50 and would no longer do the job. Tried this one and will never go back. A bit pricy for the amount you get though.

                  Not worth the hype. I have dry skin and this did absolute nothing. It goes on smoothly and the texture is great but it did not hydrate my skin.
