Don't Skip Moisturizers! (Neutrogena Hydro Boost Essence)

I know I say this all the time, but that’s because it’s  TRUE! — when you’re trying to do and achieve the whole smooth/flawless skin goals, or as close as you can get to it: PLEASE! NEVER EVER SKIP MOISTURIZING! 

There are many good reasons to use a facial moisturizer. Keep skin hydrated is an important step toward keeping it healthy. Facial moisturizers can enhance the functioning of the uppermost layer of skin. Think of the skin's surface like the paint job on a car. If the paint is cracked, the metal underneath is left unprotected from the elements and quickly oxidizes and rusts. Applying a moisturizer to your face can increase the moisture level, prevent skin from drying out, and, if the moisturizer contains a sunscreen, also protect against sun damage. 

There are a lot of moisturizers on the market —here's a product recommendation. This is the moisturizer I personally like. I have been giving this product a test for more than a month now and it's better if I shall spill the results to you all.

Product Description:

With innovative “Progressive Release System”, Neutrogena Hydro Boost Essence is quickly absorbed to quench your skin’s thirst. This unique concentrated formula with purified Hyaluronic acid and Olive extract provides up to 3 times moisture level, making it available to dry skin cells. Skin is fully hydrated with a glow all day long. Every morning and night after clear lotion, massage evenly over face and neck.

Key Ingredients: 
Water, Glycerin, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Butylene, Glycol, Cyclohexasiloxane, Dimethiconol, Aluminium Starch Octenylsuccinate, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Cetearyl Olivate, Bisabolol.

Coming to the product itself. Upon pumped out, the gel is blue in colour and it went colourless when spread on skin. It's texture is like thin gel, since it is water based it does not feel heavy or greasy on skin. It has a pleasant smell that I really love which is not too strong and it doesn't linger for long either. The gel gives instant cooling effect on skin for a few seconds.


Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel SPF30/PA++ is a decent moisturizer and sun protection gel to be used. I really love the fact that it hydrates my skin well, makes my cheeks feel soft and bouncy at the same time and has a pleasant smell. The sun protection factor is sufficient for medium sunlight exposure, but if you're sweating buckets after wearing Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel SPF30/PA++ then I think it is best to reapply.


Neutrogena, a skincare brand that is highly recommended by dermatologists, is committed to help women battle the early signs of skin ageing. Everything you need to know about fighting wrinkles, dark spots, visible pores and dry skin, comes down to one thing: You have to invest in your skin, and the time is now. 

“As a brand that cares about the wellness of the skin, Neutrogena wants every woman to know that she can achieve younger looking skin with two easy steps – through hydration and sun protection. The beauty with Neutrogena products is that these are easy to use, they are lightweight on the skin, and they live up to the promise of giving you healthy, supple and bouncy skin,” says Paul Dizon, Neutrogena’s Senior Brand Manager. 

The Science of Hydration 

Just like the rest of your body, the upper layers of your skin need their daily supply of water to retain the face’s plumpness and smoothness. Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost line is designed to help increase the water content of your skin by replenishing its water supply and by strengthening the skin’s moisture barrier. This combination gives women that much-coveted smooth, supple and younger-looking skin. 

The Neutrogena products that are under the Hydro Boost line are: 

Hydro Boost Renewal Gel Cream, which helps fight dullness, visible pores and dry lines. 
Hydro Boost Mouse Cleanser, which effectively foams away impurities. 
Hydro Boost Essence, to help replenish and retain hydration all day long. 
Hydro Boost Renewal Serum, so skin looks best even without makeup.
