Neutrogena HydroBoost Moisturising Gel:
This gel cream recently was replaced my LRP Toleraine Gentle Hydrating cleanser. It is well suited for most skin types and gets absorbed into the skin faster than you can say “Juwanaman”.
It contains hyaluronic acid to help retain moisture, holding up to 1000 times its weight in water. I recommend it for people with super oily super sensitive, acne prone/ hormonal cystic acne prone skin.
The award wining water-gel formula quenches dry skin and hydrates almost instantly. This product has quickly earned a reputation as the go-to moisturiser particularly amongst people who dislike a greasy residue after application. It can be worn under make up as it leaves pores unclogged and is completely invisible.

Unlike the original moisture surge, this product repairs and strengthens very dry skin. Primary ingredient are alor barbadesis and olive extract, Hyaluronate, glycerin, red algae extract to name a few. It has a strong glue like smell and feels heavy to the touch. This are not bad characteristics however because it spreads evenly and lightly when used and the smell quickly disappears. It is perfect for removing blemishes and sun spots on your skin

This product is so amazing it has a dedicated cult following. Kirbie at Popsugar blog recommends this product greatly when she told us how she had ruined her face with so much skin products on one time in an effort to review so many products. She received recommendation from dermatologist to try a gentle cleanser and this fragrance free minimalist cream. She was amazed at the effect os using this product – in her words, “my skin felt so plump and exfoliated, I was surprised it had so much good benefits that got rid of hyper pigmentation on my skin”.
