The cleanser is effective and does what is says which is provide hydration to the skin. Love love love it!!
The price for the product is really a good price and all can afford it Not just the rich and the famous...
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.
It cleanses the skin without leaving it feeling stripped, tight and dry, a problem with many gel cleansers.
I personally prefer a cream, oil or balm cleanser, so I won't repurchase, but I happily finished my bottle of it - a huge plus, since if I don't like something I will usually pass it on. If I were to buy a gel cleanser again, this would be it.
I'm sure you've experienced it before, as soon as you start to ascend to a higher altitude (i.e. flying in general or travelling between cities such as Durban and Johannesburg) you start to feel your facial skin tightening and your lips needing a couple extra coats of lip balm. Well, try doing that every week!
My Neutogena Hydro Boost products couldn't have come at a better time!
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!
Neutrogena cleansers are my absolute favourite drugstore cleansers, so it was no surprise to me that I loved their new Hydro Boost offering! I already use their Fresh Foaming Cleanser (which I believe is a fave of Kim Kardashian) and their Spot Clearing Facial Wash which I can't live without. Again, the texture and fragrance of this cleanser is tops, my skin doesn't feel squeaky clean (i.e. taught) after using it, and it also has an "open-close" turning pump which helps when I travel.
Hyaluronic acid is the active ingredient in this range. It's moisture-binding characteristic is exceptionally important when it comes to skin aging. One of the qualities of youthful skin is its ability to hold water and retain a balanced amount of moisture. As we age, our skin loses the ability to maintain this vital, plumping moisture as well as it once did. The result is visible loss of firmness, pliability, and diminished appearance of plumpness and suppleness.
Hyaluronic acid can enhance moisture content beyond comparison with anything else, and at the same time revitalize skin’s outer layers so they look and feel softer, smoother, and, especially, radiantly hydrated! That’s how it instantly improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid is quite high up in the ingredient list so that is always a plus, which is especially great for a drugstore product.

Hydro Boost Water Gel Cleanser 200m? - R99.95 RSP
The face wash is gentle but effective,removed all crime and makeup without stripping or drying out my skin.definitely a good but.
Upon trying it, every expectation I had was surpassed.
The biggest factors that I look for in any face wash is the ability to not over dry my face as I hate the dry and tight feeling afterwards, this product not only did not do that BUT had my skin feeling very subtle.
Soft, pretty and everything lovely.
Within the few weeks of this trial, my skin has drastically changed, the difference is visible and I'm so happy to be I'm this skin.
I used this product twice daily as I felt that it definitely was not harsh at all on my extremely sensitive skin so would definitely recommend this to everyone irrespective of their own skin type.
If you want your entire life changed, this range is how you do it ?
How I’ve used the products:
In the morning I use the cleanser in the shower to clean my skin of dead skin cells. Once out the shower I give my skin an extra cleanse with the micellar water on a cotton pad. I then use a generous amount of the water gel, paying careful attention to my dry spots and lips. Then comes putting on my face as I like to say (not that I use much makeup ;)).
At night I get lazy at times and only use the cleanser sometimes. I use a facial wipe every night to get rid of makeup and impurities that have come to visit during the day. I give my face a good clean and then will sometimes do 2 rounds of cotton pads using the micellar water. I make sure the pad is clean before putting on a generous amount of water gel, paying careful attention to my dry spots and lips.
