Love at first use!!!

I love everything about Nivea's Hydro Boost Water Gel Cleanser!
It costs about the same as other Neutrogena cleansers (I actually found it yesterday for R97 at Dischem).

I used this cleanser for the first time last night, and what really intrigued me was the texture of the formula itself. I expected a standard, almost jelly-like gel to come out of the bottle. Instead, the formula that came out was a lot thinner than what I was expecting, and it really did feel "watery" (not in a bad way). When I rubbed it between my palms, I could already tell I was going to love this on my face - the formula felt almost silky (weird, I know, considering I just described it as "watery").

After washing my face, my skin felt very clean but not tight or dry at all. My skin also felt soft and smooth to the touch.
Next came the true test of cleanliness: I took a cotton round and applied my toner with it. Looking at the cotton round, there was absolutely NO makeup residue left on it! This is when I know my cleanser has done a good job (and I was wearing a full face of makeup). I proceeded with my usual Garnier moisturizer (although I am now itching to try the Neutrogena one from this range).

Waking up this morning, my skin still felt soft and hydrated, and what I found interesting is that my T-zone is much less oily than usual. I'm not sure if this could be because my face wasn't stripped of moisture from cleansing? Who knows.

All I can say for now is that I am absolutely in love with this Neutrogena cleanser, and if I keep loving it this much, I'm never going back! I will update should my feelings about this product change in any way.
