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.

Sarita from MN
This is my favorite facial moisturizer. The only one I use. It has a great light scent & the only one I trust for my sensitive skin.
I have been using this product for years
Catlady7 from Arkansas
I use this morning and night. It is lightweight and hydrating. Goes on smoothly and has a cooling effect until it dries. It wears great under foundation if you wait until it dries before you put on primer or foundation.
My holy grail
Holy Grail from Englewood, CO
This stuff is amazing! It makes my face feel so good, so soft, so hydrated, so moisturized. When you put it on your face feels wet & like it's a lot but then within a minute your skin just soaks it all up. I use it every day and it's really helped clear my face; and helped it go from dry to soft. I get so many compliments on glowing skin! I will always be buying this product!
MY FAVORITE MOISTURIZER!!
chris from NC
i've used the hydro boost line for what feels like forever and i can safely say their water gel moisturizer is my favorite thing ever!! so light weight, cooling, hydrating, and smells so light and clean!! it really does make a difference of how fresh & hydrated my face looks, and once it soaks into the skin, that's an all day 24/7 hydrating dream!! fav fav fav!!!
My favorite moisturizer ever
Kayla from Michigan
This moisturizer is everything. It's the only moisturizer that doesn't make my skin burn when it's dry or irritated, and it doesn't cause breakouts. I had a big dry patch on my jawline/chin and this stuff took care of it in 3 days. You can literally lather it on and it won't make your skin feel greasy or clogged. I use this in the summer and winter, morning and night. I don't love the price so I tried using a generic Meijer brand that said it had the same ingredients, but it made my skin burn. Neutrogena Hydroboost is the only one for me!
Love it.. HOWEVER
Sweetestgirl from Corpus Christi, Texas
I love this moisturizer! BUUUUUT, I will not but at ulta again. I was wondering around the skin care section in target and found this same moisturizer for $16.99.. that's a big price difference. Love you ulta but definitely not enough to spend an extra $8 on my moisturizer!
Lightweight and soothing
JCFK from Lowell
This is one of the better face gels I've used. It is very light and a small dab is sufficient in covering most of your face! It also feels soothingly cool and does not leave residue like some creams. I highly recommend this product!
Cierra from North Carolina
I don't usually write reviews at all because I don't ever really find a product good enough to review but I used this and it skin instantly absorbed it and my skin looked fresher and felt more hydrated. There was no film left over or stickiness. I usually don't use moisturizer and my skin is left bumpy and irritated but this really did the job. I love this product. Totally recommend.
I was shocked!
Please keep this line! from Tennessee
This actually works! Most face moisturizers break me out and do not hydrate any dry areas I have. This didn't make my oily areas worse or breakout and made a noticeable difference on any dry areas I have. I'm so glad I found a moisturizer that works for my combo oily / dry skin that isn't overly expensive or breaks me out! I recommend giving it a try if you're at your wits end with facial moisturizer and give it a go - very friend who has tried it loves it also!
CateG from Tampa, FL
This gel soaks quickly into Your skin and leaves no residue. My face felt very velvety afterward.
Christie from Pensacola, Florida
I think I have very dry skin and this instantly feels so hydrating! I would definitely recommend it to anyone. You don't need too much product either. My skin feels soft after I use it too! No harsh scent or any scent at all really. I will definitely buy the larger size as soon as I run out of this one!
I really want to love it
!!! from US
Ok first I have to say it's pretty expensive for neutrogena but it is a great moisturizer. It didn't make my face red like some of the reviews say but I kinda made my face break out a little. I am a teenager so i could have just woken up w hormonal pimples but it was just a little random that I put it on the a few hours later had pimples. I really do think u should try it though because it is a really good moisturizer but didn't quite work for me I might try it again in a few years but for now no.
Decent Moisturizer but too Pricey
Reillyyyy from Florida
At the beginning of the year I had a sudden outbreak of moderate to severe hormonal acne. My dermatologist told me I needed to find an oil free moisturizer. This blew up online so I decided to try it. My skin was oily and (obviously) acne prone. Initially I wasn't sure I liked it because it didn't feel like it sunk into my skin. It did not, however, break me out so I continue using it. After awhile it was a good moisturizer that I was impressed by. I am searching for a new moisturizer now for two reasons. 1) The price of this is too high for what you get. I use just a bit on my finger tips in the morning and the jar empties FAST 2) While My skin has improved a lot my pores look HUGE and the blackheads on my nose that were slowly disappearing are now as stubborn as ever. The only thing that could cause this in my routine is the moisturizer. I believe this is a moisturizer for normal skin to slightly oily skin types.
Sarah R from IL
Just bought a new jar after using a sample of this gel. Im surprised by how much I love it! It makes my face incredibly soft. Honestly better than any other moisturizer that I've ever tried!
Emily from NY
Having used other face gels, creams, etc. this is up there in the "high quality" range. It reminds me a lot of clinique's moisture surge. I have extremely dry skin thats acne prone, flakey and constantly washed due to covid-19. Recently, none of my lightweight moisturizers would penetrate my skin well enough and my thicker moisturizers would just sit on top of my skin. After applying this just once, I was able to soften my skin up to the point I was able to rub the extra skin off. Disgusting, yes but very satisfying to finally have soft skin again. I'm only taking one star off for the fact that its scented. It's not the biggest deal once you massage it in you won't smell it. I just personally don't believe that skincare should be scented.
Burst of Hydration
VP from Sevierville, TN
I've extremely dry, acne-prone sensitive skin, so I'm always on the market to find a great moisturizer that won't clog my pores or be greasy. Came across this and I fell in love with it! Used it up, bought another jar. The only con is, it's not that hydrating, I've noticed once I blend and pat into the skin, yeah it absorbs moisture, but it still feels dry. I'm still in the market for a great water-based moisturizer with actual hydrating properties.
NOT for people with sensitive skin
LA from MN
I get horribly dry and sensitive skin. At first this was amazing but then after 2 months I started having issues. This wasn't doing anything to help my flaking skin and only aggravated it causing my sensitivity to intensify and cause a burning sensation. It's probably fine for people with regular sling but people with sensitive skin beware.
Love how it makes my skin feel!
Wendy from Fargo, ND
I noticed a big difference after adding this product to my skin care routine. I use it immediately after taking a shower or washing my face to keep my skin from feeling over-dried. It gives me a dewy, smooth, clean feeling instead of the sticky or oily feel of other products I've tried.
Great for my finicky sensitive skin!
Sensitive Skin Erin from Columbus, OH
I use this product morning and night after cleansing and before applying makeup. It's a great hydrating product that won't clog your pores. My finicky skin that's dry in some places and oily in others has never been more even and uniform. I love this water gel!
Would buy this again
Tay from Florida
I love this product it's so light, keeps my skin hydrated and soft.
Great for dry skin
Lauren R from Denver, Colorado
This face lotion is a repeat purchase for me. I have trouble finding face lotions that keep my skin hydrated in dry weather, this one is great. I will purchase again.
Love this hydro gel.
QLiz from TX
I use it in the mornings preferably but could use it either way. I use it to waken up my skin and hydrate with out a greasy or heavy feeling on my face.
Cori from Maine
I personally love this product! I tried the mini first, since it is expensive and I would recommend doing that if you're a first time purchaser. I love how lightweight it is! My skin instantly soaks it up AND it doesn't make me break up! I've read a lot of the comments that said it did make them break out, but I had the opposite experience. It's so hydrating and just made the overall appearance of my face healthier.
