Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel

May 31, 2011
Day after day, I slather on what seems like an illegal amount of moisturizer. I always thought that this skin care step not only makes my skin feel comfortable throughout the day but also prevents future breakouts (since dryness causes the skin to panic and produce unwanted oil) and premature aging. I just heard the bad news over the weekend: my moisturizer isn't working hard enough because my lifestyle plainly just demands more skin hydrators. EEEPP!
Your habits, lifestyle and environment are filled with hydration poachers that dehydrate skin. Skin dehydration causes premature wrinkles and loss of radiance that make you look older than you actually are. It's also linked to sensitive skin that's often accompanied by irritation, blotchiness and itchiness. That's not all: dehydrated skin also stimulates oil glands to produce more oil, leaving your skin oily and congestion-prone.
Studies show that drinking too much coffee (but it's so good!), staying in an air-conditioned room (read: 9hrs+ in the office), skipping lunch (hello, meetingsss), stressing over work (no explanation needed), staying under the sun (even with ample amount of SPF), and skimping on sleep (guilty with a capital G) immensely dehydrates skin. Reading the product literature above almost made me bawl up in disbelief. Thank heavens, Neutrogena bolts into the picture with their latest (Asian exclusive) skin care range: Hydro Boost.


I just got a hold of the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel over the weekend as a brandvocate and wow...it does feel watery good!



I applied it as a day and night cream and Neutrogena wasn't kidding when they promised that 1) it feels like water (it's that light!) and 2) it makes the skin feel and look hydrated. I'd usually wake up with oily skin but this one made me look grease-free after 9 (precious) hours of sleep in an air-conditioned room. I'd say this product's perfect for our weather too cause it's non-sticky and feels like a big jump on a deep, blue pool on an extra hot day. Imagine this picture and say mmmmm:

  3. Intriguing :) It could pass off for a save version of Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream!

    It also reminds me of my favorite moisturizer, Avon Anew Hydrapro :D Except, it's only available in China :(
