Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream & Eye Cream

The new Hydro Boost line from Neutrogena is  first for the brand, a product brought  to us from the Asian market.

These  are lightweight gel-creams  that pack moisture into a light formula, utilizing purified  hyaluronic acid to give skin hydration.

 For  face,  the moisturizer comes in  regular ( Water Gel)  and Extra Dry Skin Gel- Cream.  I had the extra dry to try which worried me a little as I have normal skin right now that's been a little breakout prone with heavier moisture when I've tried. But I gave it a shot and found that the lightweight claim is very true. It glides on easily , sinks in fast and you don't feel  any residue or tackiness . It's barely there . But after its on  you realize your skin  feels good, soft and  hydrated but not overly so. The next morning my skin looked nicely plumped. I will say I am not sure that this would be enough moisture for extra dry skin. Maybe just  dry or normal to dry.

The eye gel -cream  felt/worked much the same . At first I thought it was so  light feeling that how could this possibly work ? But I realized that my eyes don't feel as dry as they usually do , so there must be something going on here. This  is a nice one to use especially in AM as it will work well under makeup  without waiting for it to set in.

For those who need moisture but want lightness, these do just that.  Note that these do have fragrance if you have issues with that. It's not very strong  but it's there.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost range is available now and retail is 18.99 each at their website. Drugstore/Target prices may vary.
