Hello lovely peeps 👋🏻
I wanted to have a fun chat through of the new (more new to me than anything) Neutrogena Hydro Boost gel crème.
Now that I am a student I am trying to make smarter purchases and to be less impulsive on my product choice.
What prompted this, is that I am almost out of my Cliniqué moisture surge. It’s been my skin care holy grail for a couple years now and I painfully realized I just don’t have the $60 to spend on it.
I was looking through Shoppers and came across the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Cremè and spotted a lot of similarities not only in packaging but in the formulation as well. I had used the serum from this line before and loved what it did for my skin.
I decided that the sale price was worth it (a steal of a deal at $19 marked down from $26) and bought it!
The Formula: Right away the consistency of it is very similar to the moisture surge: Clear and blue (instead of clear and pink). It has the same smell as the serum too, the only way I can explain it is like the smell of a swimming pool but not in a gross way 😂 It has a jelly like feel until it smooths into the skin. The warmth of your skin makes it melt into it.
Application: I notice a little goes a very long way. My skin feels hydrated but not heavy. On freshly exfoliated skin it sinks in even better and I apply an extra coat just for a luxurious feel.
After a couple hours:
After applying and going about my routine my skin still feels fresh and soft. Not oily or sticky, but dry like everything had soaked in nicely.
In conclusion/ comparison to Cliniquès Moisture Surge, I do feel that the Moisture Surge has better lasting power, but only because of the obvious price difference. I believe if you are looking for something with similar benefits but half the price, this is the way to go.
Since I changed up my skincare I feel like it fits in easily. I’ve been going for more natural and ‘sensitive skin friendly’ products.
I spoke about these in my last post but would anyone be interested in a ‘Skin Care Routine’ post or anything along those lines? 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!
