Hi, everyone! If you have found this review, then, I am so glad! In fact, I regard this post as more than just a mere review, but more as a testimony which I hope inspires many.

Growing up, I have always had problematic skin. My skin problems were more than just the usual teenage-age acne irritations or the annoying zit. My skin problems were quite serious- I had eczema, which I am thankful I outgrew by adulthood, my skin was two-toned, whereby I had white spots, whereby, in the Afrikaans language they call it 'wit flekke'. I had dry skin and on top of that I STILL had to deal with the 'usual' acne problem that happens in your teen years. So, yes, having problematic skin was not easy; I felt insecure, I hated looking at myself in the mirror and I had a life-long dream of going to the dermatologist; those amazing skin specialist who could give you beautiful skin...provided you had lots of money of cause *shakes head*.

Let me just say that I am so grateful for the revolution in skin care, globally. Back in the day, you really needed to go to the Dermatologist to get that gorgeous skin you were after, but thanks to advanced technology etcetera, we can purchase the exact same products which would have once -upon- a -time only been available in the doctor's surgery.

For many, many years, I have tried many skin care products, jumping from brand to brand just to find the one miracle cure I was looking for. Unfortunately, NOTHING worked. While I was still attending primary and high school, my parents supplied and bought all those skin care products for me, and for that, I will always be grateful. I clearly remember that my mom bought my first Neutrogena product roughly 7 years ago. It was something that was recommended to me at the store by the sales lady. Of cause I did not think it would work; I lost trust in every product, but boy oh boy, let me tell you - MY LIFE CHANGED THE DAY NEUTROGENA BECAME A PART OF MY LIFE; IT WAS AS THOUGH I FOUND MY SOUL MATE, MY KIGHT IN SHINING ARMOUR.

I have been using Neutrogena for 7 years now and I will never ever change my skin care product. With just one look at my skin you'll think I never had problems. after I used it for the first time, I started getting compliments relating to my skin. Hence, the product's effectiveness is clearly visible, not just to me, but to everyone else around me as well.

Neutrogena just gets better and better by the day! The new Hydro Boost range is bursting with that hydrating content that is so vital and needed in a skin product and has become part of my skin care regime both at morning and night times. I love my water gel cleanser and moisturizer !

I love looking at all the Neutrogena products at the store and it gets me quite excited try to decide which one I want to purchase! It's worth every daaaarn cent, because it's just THAT AMAZING!

I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO BE SENT A SPECIAL PACKAGE FROM BEAUTY BULLETIN! IT CONTAINED THE NEUTROGENA HYDRO BOOST GEL-CREAM, WATER GEL AND MICELLAR WATER. I RECEIVED THE PACKAGE ON THE 20TH OF JANUARY AND I AM PLANNING ON USING IT FOR A PERIOD OF 2-3 WEEKS.

BEAUTY BULLETIN SELECTED 100 INFLUENCERS TO TAKE PART IN THIS WORD-OF-MOUTH PROJECT AND EACH OF THE INFLUENCERS RECEIVED A 3-STEP PROCESS PACK.

Process pack 1 included: the Hydro Boost facial wipes, water gel cleanser and the gel moisturizer or gel cream.
The 3-step process for pack one included:
Remove Makeup – Hydro Boost facial wipes
Cleanse – water gel cleanser
Hydrate – gel moisturizer or gel cream

Process pack 2 included: the Hydro Boost Water Gel Cleanser, Micellar Water and gel moisturizer or gel cream.
The 3-step process for pack two included:
Cleanse – water gel cleanser
Remove Makeup – Micellar Water
Hydrate – gel moisturizer or gel cream

I received PACK 2 with: the HYDRO BOOST WATER, GEL CLEANSER, MICELLAR WATER & HYDRO BOOST GEL MOISTURISER. My skin-type is normal, although I suffer from an oily T-Zone and dry areas around my nose and on my cheeks and tiny pimples on my forehead.

“HYDRATION IS THE FOUNDATION FOR HEALTHY-LOOKING SKIN.”

FIRST IMPRESSIONS:

Firstly, I must make it known that I am absolutely smitten by the color of the entire range! I am hopelessly in love with anything blue.
The whole range is available both in-store AND online at Clicks, Dischem and Foschini.

HYDRO BOOST WATER GEL CLEANSER
The gel cleanser comes in a nifty 200 ml bottle with an adequately secure squeeze-pump mechanism. The bottle is quite elongated so it is comfortable to hold in your hands. Totally travel-friendly for a gal on the move!
A description of the product, directions and ingredients are listed on the back of the bottle. This product is made in Greece and should be used within 12 months of opening the product. The overall packaging of the product is simple, but sophisticated.

The gel cleanser is said to be lightweight and gets activated with water. It claims to lather away dirt, oil and make-up while leaving your skin bursting with hydration! It contains the much coveted Hyaluronic acid that naturally occurs in the skin- which basically boosts hydration and locks it in!

When I first tried it, I only used one pump and it was suffice for my entire face and neck area. The cleanser itself is transparent and has a slightly runny consistency. It lathers up decently and my face felt squeaky clean after use!

HYDRO BOOST MICELLAR WATER
The packaging of this bottle just screams, ” TRAVEL FRIENDLY!”. The product basically comes in a 200 ml bottle which is quite narrow. I prefer this bottle shape to the Garnier micellar water bottle shapes. It can be held much easily in one hand. It has a screw on cap, so it is totally leak-proof! The product retails for R99.95 which is slightly more than the Garnier micellar water.

I first tried out this micellar water under dire circumstances. In the small, little town where I live, the municipal water had been cut for just over three days. Our water tank was being a tad moody, and I had no water to wash my face! So, I grabbed this gem of a product and used it to clean my face and take out any impurities. I had no makeup on, and this cannot replace cleansing, however, my skin felt SO nourished and clean. The next day, I had no signs of any new breakouts and my skin was so supple!

HYDRO BOOST GEL CREAM
I tried this luxurious cream as soon as my package arrived! The product comes in a thick plastic 50ml container. The plastic container is recyclable. I would have ideally preferred a tube to squeeze the product out, purely for hygienic reasons. I do not like digging my fingers into products and this would be ever-so-slightly cumbersome for traveling! Nevertheless, I rubbed it into my skin using circular motions as per the instructions, and my skin immediately felt more hydrated and felt so supple!

For R139.95, a generous amount of product is provided. I basically used the same amount of product that I would use if it was my normal moisturizer. The product is particularly for very dry skin and does not have any SPF, so a sun screen is required. The consistency of the product is as per the name- it is a gel. It is extremely light! It absorbs into the skin without any haste. I’ve had so much grief in the past with my Eucerin day cream because it was just too thick and heavy.

Needless to say, I fell head over heels in love with this product!

DRY SKIN IS CAUSED BY A LACK OF LIPIDS OR OIL IN THE SKIN. WITH DEHYDRATED SKIN, THERE IS A LACK OF WATER IN THE STRATUM CORNEUM- THE UPPERMOST LAYER OF THE SKIN.

ANYONE can experience dehydrated skin. You do not have to have dry skin to have dehydrated skin. Oily and combination skin types can also experience dehydrated skin! That’s something I didn’t know…
Before using this range, I really didn’t realize how dull my skin actually was!
I blocked off my eyes in one of my pictures because I look as dead as my skin. LOL

PLEASE NOTE: NEUTROGENA IS NOT A CRUELTY-FREE BRAND. IF YOU ARE A VEGAN OR ONLY MAKE USE OF VEGAN OR CRUELTY-FREE PRODUCTS, THESE PRODUCTS WILL NOT BE SUITABLE FOR YOU. THE PRODUCTS ALL CONTAIN GLYCERIN, IF YOU HAVE A GLYCERIN ALLERGY; THIS IS ALSO NOT SUITABLE FOR YOU.

This range is aimed at boosting hydration, locking it in ALL DAY and leaving your skin looking smooth, supple and renewed!

R E N E W E D!

My routine consisted of mainly using the cleanser and the gel cream. I used the micellar water to remove my makeup, specifically my eye-makeup. The micellar water was not used on a daily basis.
The cleanser has a gentle smell, and left my skin feeling SUPER DUPER clean! Most face cleansers usually dry my skin out. Boo! However, this face cleanser, containing hyaluronic acid, left my skin soft and hydrated. I used one pump for my entire face and the face wash itself lathers up relatively nicely. All in all, I now look forward to washing my face!

DUE TO THE FACT THAT THIS RANGE ONLY COMBATS DEHYDRATED SKIN, I DID HAVE A FEW BREAKOUTS AND MY BLACKHEADS AROUND MY NOSE AREA WERE NOT REDUCED. I FELT THAT MY PORES FELT MUCH CLEANER THAN USUAL AFTER USING THIS RANGE. THE CLEANSER IS DERMATOLOGICALLY TESTED AND CONTAINS PERFUME.

The micellar water has a subtle but refreshing scent and also contains hyaluronic acid. The entire range does. My skin felt clean and extra supple after using this micellar water! Waterproof makeup was not an issue to remove! Although, I do feel that my Garnier oil-infused micellar water removes my makeup more effectively in the sense that less rubbing and product is needed. This product is also more expensive than the Garnier micellar water, but all in all, I would definitely use this product again and I MAY consider repurchasing!

How does micellar water work? Firstly, it can be used on ALL skin types and is exceptionally beneficial for dry and sensitive skin types. Now back to how it works…

IT IS LIKE A MINI SPONGE THAT MOPS UP DIRT AND MAKEUP USING MICELLAR TECHNOLOGY. A MICELLE IS A SMALL PARTICLE IN THE WATER THAT HAS AN OIL-LOVING (OR HYDROPHOBIC FOR ALL YOU SCIENCE-LOVERS OUT THERE) TAIL THAT TRAPS DIRT, OIL AND MAKEUP! THE WATER-LOVING (HYDROPHILIC) HEAD ALLOWS THE MICELLE TO DISSOLVE IMPURITIES RESULTING IN THEM BEING EASILY WIPED AWAY. THAT’S WHY WE NEED NOT RINSE OUR FACES AFTER USING MICELLAR WATER!

There is a bit of a debate, so to speak, about the effectiveness of micellar water compared to face wipes. Face wipes are often seen as a convenience product. They’re super great for when you get home late or when you do not have access to water (because that’s what happens when you live in South Africa). The majority of beauty experts recommend that face wipes shouldn’t be used everyday and nor should they replace our usual facial cleansers. They recommend using them to remove eye makeup and then following with a face wash. Micellar water has increased EXPONENTIALLY in popularity recently and some ladies view it as a gentle cleanser on its own. There has been some backlash and people are two-minded as to whether it is in fact good enough to completely replace our daily face cleansers because it does not have a deep-cleaning function.
Fun fact: I use micellar water to wash away hard-to-remove stains from my makeup brushes and beautyblender. I find that micellar water is less harsh to use on my beautyblender as opposed to makeup remover. This micellar water was really effective for removing stains from my makeup brushes and beautyblender! It gets a MASSIVE thumbs up from me for this purpose!

Now for my favourite part of the range…the gel cream!

I previously discussed my distaste regarding the packaging, however the product itself is FANTASTIC! I was initially using the same amount of gel as if it were my normal moisturizer. I found that it was too much product and I lessened the amount over time.

The product should be massaged in circular motions into the skin. It absorbs so quickly and leaves my sin looking supple and “bouncy”! My skin definitely looked AND felt renewed! This product does not have SPF so I had to use a sunscreen in conjunction with it. The gel cream is exceptionally light and contrary to your first instincts, it’s not sticky at all! One might think a gel would leave your face looking greasy…

I also used the gel cream to accentuate my highlight when applying makeup. I would dot a bit of the gel cream on my cheekbones and then apply my liquid highlighter and top it all off with a powder highlighter! Needless to say, I was glowing all day long, baby!

EVEN WITHOUT MAKEUP, MY FACE HAS THIS BEAUTIFUL, NATURAL GLOW AFTER USING THE GEL CREAM. I AM SO HAPPY WITH THIS PRODUCT AND I WILL DEFINITELY REPURCHASE IT!
MY SKIN FELT AMAZING AND LOOKED EVEN MORE AMAZING AFTER USING THIS RANGE! IT WAS EASY TO USE AND CHANGE MY SKINCARE ROUTINE AND INCORPORATE THESE PRODUCTS INTO MY ROUTINE. THIS RANGE DID NOT HELP MY OTHER SKIN CONCERNS, LIKE BLACKHEADS, BUT THIS RANGE WASN’T AIMED AT DOING THAT…

When I received this product, I had a very dry skin and had rash all over my face. I started using the product and within 2 days the rash had disappeared. It's been a full month and a couple of days using the Neutrogena Hydrate products, my skin has never looked this beautiful, its flawless, evenly toned and my complexion is back.
I'm happy with the product, after trying out so many products.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost reviews:

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cleanser
A few weeks ago I was sent the new Neutrogena Hydro Boost range to try out and review. I was a bit weary with using the product at first because my skin is quite temperamental with new products, but I went forth and used it. I have used a gel cleanser before, which all seemed to damage my skin, so I opted for a cream cleanser. With this product though I found it to be some-what different. It wasn’t as soapy as other gel cleansers which was great, and didn’t sting my skin.

Despite this and I did love it at first, after the third or fourth use, my skin started to feel taught and tight, and the next morning to my horror I had a patchy ashy complexion, where my skin started to flake around my cheek area. I stopped using the cleanser immediately.

I was sent three products, their Hydro Boost Cleanser Micellar Water, Hydro Boost Water Gel Cleanser and their Hydro Boost Gel Cream Moisturiser.

Hydro Boost it certainly does! If your skin is not temperamental around use of different products.

Would you recommend this product to someone else?
Yes depends on what your skin type is and what you are looking to achieve. Otherwise if your skin is like mine, then No.
Would you repurchase this product?
No

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Micellar Water

I was sent three products, their Hydro Boost Cleanser Micellar Water, Hydro Boost Water Gel Cleanser and their Hydro Boost Gel Cream Moisturiser. This product I loved the most out of the entire range.

There is such hype nowadays around micellar water and its benefits to your skin, and I have tried quite a few on the market, and this one comes close to one of the more expensive ranges I have used.
At first like the gel cleanser, it stung my skin, and I was very worried as to what it might do in the long run. After stopping use of all products after the third or fourth day, and when my skin settled a bit, I opted to just using this product out of the range that was sent to me.

I use it once a day at in evening before applying my night cream.
I noticed a slight change in my complexion which was great. I used this product every alternate day, so my skin didn’t react as drastically to it. I am still using it now, which is a good sign.

Would you recommend this product to someone else?
Yes
Would you repurchase this product?
No

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream
One of the products I received was the Hydro Boost Gel Cream.
I do love gel creams, as they aren’t as heavily oil based as others and they don’t leave a greasy film over your skin. I enjoyed this product at first as well like the cleanser, but my skin reacted so badly to the new range that I opted to not use any after about the fourth or fifth day.

The nice thing about this product was that it is moisture intense, perhaps too much so for my skin or too little perhaps, or my skin was just reacting to something else. It was lightweight, and non-greasy, which I loved most. What I didn’t like was that my skin still felt taught and tight after its use.

I can’t comment on what my skin would have looked like if I had used it for a longer period of time. But after my reaction to the product I don’t think I would have been able to walk outside without a ton of makeup.

Would you recommend this product to someone else?
If you have combination skin sure. Otherwise I wouldn’t recommend it.
Would you repurchase this product?
No

Absolutely cannot stress enough how amazing this range is!

I suffer from dry and sensitive skin and I love the fact that these products are suitable for sensitive skin.

Been using the range for 2 weeks now and I can see amazing results!I suffer from occasional breakouts and when I started using this range I haven't had a breakout since,it keeps my skin looking healthy and supple all day long.

The Hydro Boost Micellar water removes all my makeup from my face,I also love the fact that there is no need to rinse your face after using this product and another bonus is it smells AMAZING!


I suffer from dry skin as well and I love that fact that the Hydro Boost water gel cleanser doesn't leave my skin feeling dehydrated one bit,it hydrates my skin thoroughly and leaves my skin feeling healthy and clear.

My absolute favorite item from the range is the Hydro Boost Gel Cream ,amazing texture and leaves your skin feeling so refreshed and revitalized,definite must have item and you rarely find such a high end moisturizer at such a low cost.


I would definitely be buying this range again and would recommend it to anyone who is having problems with their current skincare range.

It's very rare to see & feel results immidiately from beauty product, but with the Neutrogena Hydro Boost I was really impressed with how well the product delivered.

With all the traveling & photoshoots I get up
to I always need to pay extra attention to making sure my skin doesn't break out. I loved how after a hectic day onset I would use the Micellar Water to remove make up & Water gel to boost the hydration & finish my new routine with the Hydro Boost water gel.

I would recommend the products for a healthy skin care regime to anyone. Especially if you have a busy life like me, because it's so quick and so easy that it becomes part of your everyday routine in 3 easy steps.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Range.



About three weeks ago, Beauty Bulletin ( Beauty_Bulletin ) was kind enough to send me these amazing products as part of their #AlwaysBounceBackSA project with Neutrogena.

Funny enough I was in the market to find a new skin care regime as lately my skin was an odd mix of oily and extra dry. I was dabbling in a few products and testing out the pros and cons before setting on a brand when these beauties landed on my desk.

The Neutrogena Hydro Boost range to hit South Africa, while Neutrogena is a firm favorite amongst many South Africans, I feel as if this range is really going to blow everyone away.

Who is Neutrogena ?

Neutrogena is an American brand of skin care, hair care and cosmetics, that is headquartered in Los Angeles, California. According to product advertising at their website, Neutrogena products are distributed in more than 70 countries. Neutrogena was founded in 1930 by Emanuel Stolaroff, and was originally a cosmetics company named Natone. It is now part of the United States-based Johnson & Johnson conglomerate, which bought the independent company in 1994.

What Neutrogena has to say about the Hydro Boost range :

"Hydration is the source of radiant and healthy-looking skin. It's time to rethink moisturisation. Containing a Hylauronic Gel Matrix, Hydro Boost's® new water-gel instantly locks in intense hydration and progressively releases it throughout the day. Your skin is so hydrated and supple it bounces back! Pretty smart right?

Oil-free and smooth to the touch
Lightweight and non-sticky
Instantly quenches skin
With Neutrogena, your skin remains hydrated every step of the way. Always start and end your day with Neutrogena Hydro Boost cleansers and hydrators and enjoy amazingly hydrated, soft skin.

The secret to hydration on demand.
Hydro Boost®’s refreshing water gel texture contains a Hyaluronic Gel Matrix that provides skin with extraordinary hydration.

Ingredients make the difference.

Purified Hylauronic Acid absorbs up to 1000x its weight in water, the special formula releases hydration back into skin all day long."

The products I had received were :

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Cleanser

What Neutrogena has to say :

Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel boosts hydration for soft, supple skin. This lightweight gel cleanser transforms into a silky lather that effectively removes makeup and impurities. With hyaluronic acid, the formula is clinically proven to increase skin's hydration level and lock it in, leaving skin refreshingly clean and touchably supple, every time you cleanse.

Soap-free
Oil-free
Paraben-free
Hypoallergenic
Non-comedogenic (won't clog pores)


What I think of the product :

Firstly, I really like the packaging of the product. It is a 200ML pump bottle, which is pretty great considering the fact that I wash my face a few times a day. The initial design of the bottle gives you an impression of water or hydration, which weirdly gives me the illusion that I will have perfectly hydrated skin. The smell is AMAZING, it has a sweet yet not over powering bubblegum smell. The cleansing gel is clear. I personally feel as if a little goes a long way with this product. The cleanser does not foam as it is a gel but it cleanses quite throughly and removes all traces of make up including water proof mascara. I actually was in the market to purchase a new skin care range, While I don't have problematic skin, I feel like I needed to up my game in the skin care department. I have sensitive skin or abrasive products are obviously a no-go for my skin.i like that the product is mild but effective and did not irritate my skin at all.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream

What Neutrogena has to say :

Hydro Boost Water Gel instantly quenches dry skin and keeps 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. It boosts skin's hydration level and locks it in all day.

Naturally found in the skin, hydrating hyaluronic acid acts as a sponge for dry skin cells, moisturizing with up to 1,000 times its weight in water, resulting in more supple and smooth skin.

Oil-free
Non-comedogenic
Purified Hyaluronic acid
Wearable under makeup
What I think of the product :

I really truly love this product, my skin has never felt this soft, smooth and most importantly hydrated. This product has a thin consistency that feels watery yet still creamy. My skin looks less dull and tired. I have combination skin so I as concerned that it will make my skin look oiler but It felt hydrated not any oilier. I definitely recount this moisturizer.


Neutrogena HydroBoost Miceller Water

What Neutrogena has to say :

New Hydro Boost Micellar Water, a unique cleanser that gently removes make-up and impurities, while quenching skin with a boost of vital hydration

Hydro Boost Cleansers contain a patented cleansing technology combined with Hyaluronic Acid to cleanse effectively while protecting the skin’s barrier to help lock in hydration

Suitable for sensitive skin.

What I have to say :

I love micellar water, specifically the garnier one. Its a quick alternative to cleaning your face/ make up off especially when you're feeling a little lazy. I quite like this product, it removes my make up quite quickly and it smells so so good! It has similar packaging as the facial cleanser however it does have a screw on cap. I personally would prefer a pump bottle for the sake of convenience. I like how this cleanser makes my skin feel after i remove my make up, which is hydrated and non sticky.



PROS & CONS

PROS :

Non-Abrasive
Hydrating
Smells AMAZING
Sturdy and neat packaging, which also happens to be cute
Dermatologist tested.
The cleanser works well with sensitive skin/eyes
The miceller water cleans off heavy make up easily
Very affordable
CONS :

Not enough product in the moisturizer tub / I would like Neutrogena to come out with a bigger tub
I would prefer a pump instead of a screw lid on the micellar water, to stop wastage
The smell might be overly powering to some people.


My final thoughts:

I genuinely love this range. I have used Neutrogena before and it was bit too harsh for my ( then ) teenaged skin . I love how this range is perfect for sensitive while still providing a through out cleaning and moisturizing. I would love to see a scrub added to the range as well as a night cream, serum and eye cream. My boyfriend loves this range just as much that he wanted to use the cleanser as face wash ( HAHA!). Im very happy with the results as my skin looks less oily, hydrated, smooth and SUPER soft.

You can find these products at Clicks, Dischem and Foschini.

Thank you to Beauty Bulletin for sending me these products to try out.

HYDRO BOOS WATER GEL.

· Oil-free and smooth to the touch (being someone with an oily skin, I wouldn't want to add more oil into my skin so this product was perfect for me)
· Absorbs quickly into skin
· Light weight and non-sticky
· Instantly quenches skin
· Your skin is left with no dry patches and no skin cracks
· This product is recommended for all skin types.

HYDRO BOOST CLEANSING GEL

My first time using the product I thought you needed a lot of product to wash your face but to my surprise you don't need that much product. This product is very convenient when travelling cause it can lock and you don't need toto worry about the product spilling everywhere in Your bags.

· Soap-free
· Oil-free
· Paraben-free
· Hypoallergenic
· Wont clog your pores (which is excellent)
· It leaves your skin feeling fresh and clean.
· These products are very gentle on the skin.

HYDRO BOOST MICELLAR WATER

I'm not a big fan of this micellar water as I need a lot of product to take my make up off as with my previous Micellar water I didn't need that much product and it lasted me much longer than this one.

Hey Beauties,

So I bought the Neutrogena® range at Dischem, aaaaaannnd here's what I thought...

At first I was a bit hesitant to buy this product because I have such sensitive skin, my skin reacts badly to new products and it gets all red and won't calm down. But after the reviews I saw on Beauty Bulletin I decided to head to Dischem, after a few days of contemplating whether or not I would purchase it, and I did.

So the first day I used it, I tried the Micellar water which made my face sting and the Hydro Boost® cleanser made my face go bright red around the cheek area, which was expected. Then I tried the Hydro Boost gel face cream for dry skin, although made my skin feel so smooth, didn't calm the redness down which I was hoping it would do. BUT.... When I woke up the next morning my face was clear and my skin was looking refreshed and didn't feel dry like it usually feels in the morning.

Knowing that it takes more than one day to see if the product works for you, I've decided to give it two weeks to see if Neutrogena® was for me and I'm happy to say that I've found a good product with Neutrogena® and will definitely be restocking it :)

I knew i was on the right path when the delivery guy said to me i don't need all these beauty products because my skin looked GREAT! That’s a bonus. I can't help but mention when i heard about the Neutrogena® Hydro Boost Range i had to sink my skin in it. Now i know I'm a Skin Care Therapist but believe me when i say i have found the ultimate powerhouse for your skin.

The Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel® is just that....a gel that is water based meaning HYDRATION and quick ABSORPTION. Truth is if you are like me and have dry sometimes sensitive skin this product will take a lot of getting used to due to is quick absorption, you end up feeling like smothering the entire tub empty!!! No No NO Less is More. check out my daily routine using the entire range.

Not only is this product my ultimate summer usage but its oil-free content is Non comedogenic meaning it doesn't tend to cause black/whiteheads by blocking the pores of the skin.......... To increase natural nutrients and absorption use the Hydro Boost Water Gel® day and night along with the Hydro Boost water Cleanser® by Neutrogena® you should already feel and notice that the skin feels supple and less dry before applying the Hydro boost water gel®


Get your skin looking Healthy and Radiant this season. #Alwaysbouncebacksa #BeautyBulletin #Neutrogena

After using Neutrogena hydro boost I realised that I had dehydrated, unhealthy and flacky skin.

Used the products at least twice daily which left my skin bright, healthy and hydrated. All the bitchiness, dullness and dark marks are gone.

My face has finally bounced back and feels good

My friends and family noticed the difference in my skin and all asked, what I had used? That's how my group and one on one conversations started. It has had such a great effect on my skin that a few people I had spoken to had went out to buy their products too. Thank you Neutrogena!!!
