It can be tempting to skip moisturiser on extra humid days, or if you have oily skin. However, regardless of skin type, we are all susceptible to skin dehydration, which can be caused by air conditioning, hot showers and not drinking enough water. Does that sound like you? 

If you’re fervently nodding your head yes, allow us to recommend a favourite drugstore moisturiser of ours that is gel-based, feels as light as air and the best part is, it does not leave a greasy or sticky after-feel on your skin. You have no excuses for skipping moisturiser now! 

The Hydro Boost Water Gel from Neutrogena was voted Most Gentle Drugstore Moisturiser For Dry Skin in this year’s GirlStyle Favourites, but it’s also great for anyone who is looking for an affordable moisturiser that deeply hydrates without being too rich. 

Read on for the reasons why we love Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Water Gel!

#1 Effectively hydrates & improves skin condition

The Hydro Boost Water Gel contains hyaluronic acid, prebiotics and trehalose - a naturally-found ingredient known for its moisture resurrection properties. These ingredients help to restore and retain moisture levels, giving your skin a healthy glow. In fact, the Hydro Boost Water Gel has been shown to help improve skin translucency, firmness and smoothness! 

#2 Long-lasting hydration

This lightweight moisturiser keeps your skin hydrated for up to a whopping 72 hours. How? 

Thanks to Neutrogena’s US Patented Prebiotic Technology,  the Hydro Boost Water Gel is able to deliver hydration that is two times deeper compared to its previous formulation. The moisturiser instantly boosts your skin’s hydration and over time, it amplifies the skin’s natural ability to self-hydrate. Et voilà - your skin is able to stay hydrated, plumped and glowing, even if you’ve spent the entire day in a dry air-conditioned environment. 

That’s not all. Compared to its previous formula, the Hydro Boost Water Gel also helps to strengthen your skin barrier by 50%, thus increasing your skin’s natural resilience against dehydration. 

#3 Light texture

Seriously, we cannot stop raving about the texture of this moisturiser. It absorbs really quickly, leaving your skin feeling soft and smooth. And don’t worry if you have oily skin or are prone to breakouts - the formula is oil-free and non-comedogenic. Legit, this is one of the most comfortable moisturisers you can get for less than $25! 

#4 Power up with the Neutrogena Hydro Boost range

Giving your skin the boost of hydration it needs can help to address a myriad of skin concerns, such as dullness, sensitivity, fine lines and wrinkles. For the best results, it’s recommended that you use the Hydro Boost Water Gel with the rest of the products in Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost range. Here’s a basic 3-step routine you can follow:
