About a week ago (cue music), I was at Target with my boyfriend and I saw a little display for the new Neutrogena Hydro Boost moisturizing gel. Honestly, I'm pretty skeptical when it comes to these gimmicky type products but I was at a point of sheer desperation so I decided to purchase them. I got the Hydro Boost Gel-Cream for Extra Dry Skin for $19.99 and the Hydro Boost Gel-Eye Cream for $17.99.
Both of these products have hyaluronic acid in them which is amazing because hyaluronic acid is said to be an amazing ingredient for anti-aging. It is also a humectant that keeps skin plump, full, and hydrated. Plus, some dermatologists say that hyaluronic acid can even help protect against UV damage. They're also oil-free, fragrance-free, dye-free, and non-comedogenic. So basically, these are awesome products for pretty much everyone.
The gel-cream moisturizer has such a gel-like consistency. It's super light weight and blends so smoothly without looking oily on the skin. Within a few days, the dry patches around my mouth, on my nose, and on my forehead were completely gone! It's very moisturizing without being heavy so I use this twice a day, even under my makeup. I've noticed that it helps my foundation go on a lot smoother as well.
The eye cream is also really light-weight just like the moisturizer. It blends effortlessly into the skin and doesn't look oily. I suffer from pretty bad dark circles because I don't sleep that much. I'm a total night owl and stay up all night watching Netflix and eating french fries. I found that within a few days my under eye bags were a lot less prominent and my concealer went on a lot easier.
I wish I had taken a before picture of how dry and dull my skin was but, oh well, at least I have an after picture right? Anyway, if you can tell from the super awkward picture, my skin looks so hydrated and radiant! My under eye bags are pretty much nonexistent and I have no dry patches on my skin at all.
My final thoughts and Review:
I was so pleasantly surprised with these products! I honestly didn't think I would like these at all, nor did I think they could actually help my dry skin. I also love how easily accessible and inexpensive these products are. Overall I give these two big thumbs up and I know I will definitely be repurchasing these when I run out!
- Oil-free and non-comedogenic
- Actually helps dry skin!
