How often have you had your skin analyzed and been told “Your skin is dehydrated – you need more moisture”? If you have oily skin, you might be thinking its a load of bollocks. Well, oily skin can be dehydrated too – you just don’t realize it because of the oil.
Realizing the need for moisture, Neutrogena has come up with a new Hydro Boost Moisture range of products. They are already available at local pharmacies.
The key ingredient in this range is hyaluronic acid – ah! There is that magical word again. We have been seeing it a lot lately haven’t we?
The star product in this range is the Neutrogena Hydro Boost water gel cream which is light in its gel like texture although the fragrance is a little strong. I have my guest reviewer using this one so we will hear from her soon with her thoughts on this product – I haven’t tried it myself so I’m keen to know how good it is.
I had to show you pictures of the event launch this time because I thought it innovative. There were synchronized swimmers doing their “thang” prior to the launch which everyone in the crowd appreciated. Not often do you get to see synchronized swimming up close – usually you’d be up in the stalls, peering through a pair of binoculars or squinting at the TV 😉
I tested some of the products in situ to see how they felt on the skin. My initial view is that the fragrance in the products are quite strong – a floral sort of strong. If you aren’t sensitive to smell, you won’t feel it. If you are, you might want to take a hefty sniff before you buy it.
Plue has a review of the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Mousse Cleanser on her blog and she loves it. I am partial towards mousse cleansers myself so I could like this one – I’ll pick it up once I finish up my current mousse cleansers – just a bit more to go!
The Hydro Boost Essence went on the skin very light (and quite strong in fragrance) but took quite a long time to absorb. I also found it left the back of my hand feeling a bit sticky. The star product Hydro Boost Water Gel is light and absorbs more quickly than the essence, leaving the back of my hand feeling soft and smooth. Its the back of my hand mind. 😛 I naturally couldn’t test the sheet mask 😛
Like I said, we’ll have a review of the Hydro Boost Water Gel coming up once my guest reviewer is done testing so watch out for that if you’d like to know how it fares (since its so new in the market). I’ve got a price list below – its the retail prices but you can always watch out for discounts at the pharmacies and roadshows 😉
