REVIEW | Neutrogena Hydra Boost Gel

Hello beauty junkies out there!

If you’ve got oily skin like me, you will understand the struggle to find a suitable non greasy and yet hydrating moisturizer? Each time my moisturizer is finisehd I will need to do a deep research on the next product I want to buy. Finding a decent moisturizer that doesn’t turn you into an oily face by noon is not an easy task. Out of so many brands and formulas that I have tested from the normal range to the luxurious range, I still cant find the perfect one that is really suitable for my skin or truly impressed me. That’s the reason why I’m always up to and ready to try new products that help my acne prone and oily skin.

I am pretty excited each time I unbox a new skincare. Today, the product I want to introduce to you guys is the Neutrogena Hydra Boost Gel. Yes, I know this is not something new anymore but still it excites me as I have never tried it before and it’s a gel type! If you guys have read other reviews of mine, I am really not into anything in cream form for skincare including mask, toner or serum. They’re a big NO NO for us with oily skin. It claims to be oil-free, lightweight, and non-sticky, it was just everything I hoped for in my moisturizer. I need not worry about how it will clogged my pores though. Some other benefits will be:

  • Non-comedogenic
  • Dermatologist tested
  • Wearable under makeup
  • Gives skin a pure boost of instant hydration
  • Replenishes with 2X more moisture
  • Repairs skin barrier damage caused by pollution

How to use:


My Opinion:

First of all, the texture of this gel is incredibly cooling and light. It may look thick from the tub itself but no! It’s extremely lightweight and almost watery feeling when you scoop it. It absorbs very quickly into my skin after a few massage and leave my skin incredibly smooth. Some say this moisturizer gave an effect of matte texture but I personally don’t feel so. 

Usually I get so oily during mid day, especially in the T-Zone, but after trying this moisturizer my skin felt smooth and less greasy from the beginning of the work day to the end. So I think it worked quite well from keeping my skin hydrated but at the same time maintain the greasiness at bay. Really suitable for us that staying in hot and humid country, but when it comes to winter country don’t think this moisturizer is for you. Another bonus for this product is their scent, it smells pretty fresh and amazing. Its smells like a fresh ocean kind of scent and I love it! 

In conclusion, I think this moisturizer is awesome, especially for the daytime. I would recommend this product if you have combination or oily skin. 5 stars product!
