Who is it for?  Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel is for those who are looking for lightweight moisturizer for daily use. It suits all skin types and is a non-comedogenic product which won’t clog your pores.

Neutrogena Hydra Boost Water Gel

Price Rs.849 for 50ml
How To Use

Firstly cleanse your skin thoroughly and tone. Apply the moisturizer evenly to face and neck area.

My Experience with Neutrogena Hydra Boost Water Gel


The product comes in a tub container with a screw lid. It is quite unhygienic yet easy to carry around.


It has a very mild fragrance. It has a pleasant aquatic scent which smells very fresh and light and is utterly pleasing. The fragrance stays on for some time; it does not vanish as soon it is applied.

Colour and Texture

As the name suggests the product is of a gel consistency, the water gel has a slight pale blue tint. The texture is very smooth and extremely light weighted. It is very hydrating and makes skin visibly supply and soft.

My experience

For daily use, I prefer very lightweight moisturizer which hydrates the skin and is non-comedogenic as I have oily and acne prone skin. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel is the perfect fit for me. I apply the water gel after cleansing and toning my skin. It absorbs quickly into the skin and locks in moisture and does not leave greasy residue afterward.

The key ingredient in this formula is the Hyaluronic acid which hydrates the skin and holds in moisture which makes the skin plumped.  It does not make skin greasy at all. The product can be reapplied throughout the day if required. It doesn’t make you feel like you are wearing layers of product and doesn’t clog your pores. Also, it is wearable under makeup.

It contains antioxidant olive extracts which repair your skin. I felt the visible changes in my skin within a week of using this product.

What did I like?
  1. Extremely Hydrating formula
  2. Nongreasy residue
  3. Easy to use
  4. Helps with acne
  5. Nourishes the skin and keeps it plump
  6. Travel-friendly
  7. Very Affordable
  8. Non-comedogenic product
  9. A little goes a long way
  10. Pleasing fragrance
  11. Ideal for all skin type
What didn't I like?
  1. Nothing
Will I recommend this product?

Yes, I would definitely recommend this product. It is worth every penny.

Rating: 5/5
