I love products that promise to hydrate your skin so the new Neutrogena Hydro Boost range did catch my eye…. and my nose. I knew my blog buddy Giddy Tigress might like to try it too so I sent her the new Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream last month to trial. Here is her review.
Give me any product with the word “hydro” in it, and I will definitely not hesitate to try it out. With the amount of air-conditioning most of us are exposed to, it is safe to say that most of us have some level of dehydrated skin, and can certainly benefit from some extra moisture.
When I first saw the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel, I was reminded of how similar the tub looked like Clinique’s Total Turnaround Cream. The Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel 50g comes packaged in a blue crystal tub, with a matte silver cover. I opened it up to discover to my amusement, that the gel-like cream is also a light shade of blue!
Well, the first thing that I noticed was however, not the color of the gel, but rather the VERY strong scent it exudes. It’s not an unpleasant smell, but to me, it felt a tad pungent and quite *sharp*. I immediately tried a little on the back of my hand and was surprised that it made my skin smoother right away.
