With the change in weather my skin has been acting crazy. Some days it feels like we skipped spring and went straight to summer. Some days it’s in the 60s and the next it’s 90. Anyway, my skin was getting really dry and my moisturizer had just run out earlier this month so it was time to crack open the next one in my lineup which just so happened to be the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel.
“Use Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel to instantly quench dry skin and boost’s skin’s hydration level. This oil-free face lotion quenches dry skin to keep it looking smooth, supple, and hydrated day after day. The unique water gel formula absorbs quickly like a gel, but has the long-lasting, intense moisturizing power of a cream. This daily gel moisturizer is formulated with hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the skin. Hyaluronic acid, a hydrator found naturally in the skin, attracts moisture and locks it in. The non-comedogenic gel facial moisturizer can be worn under makeup and leaves your skin more supple and smooth. Add this hyaluronic acid moisturizer to your at-home hydrating self care routine.“
The texture is hard to describe. It’s like a gel, but more liquid-y. It not only has made my skin feel more hydrated and less dry the past couple of weeks, but you can feel the hydration when you’re applying it. It has a cooling/refreshing effect when you first apply it but not in that minty/menthol-y way that some skincare products feel. Maybe it’s just the water gel property that makes it feel like that.
A little goes a long way too. One or two dabs with my finger in the product can cover my whole face.
Is there a moisturizer you love to use when your skin feels dry?
