Beauty Review: Happy and Hydrated

neutrogena hydration

This product isn’t anything new, but with the rising popularity of beauty routines focusing on skin hydration to keep skin looking young and clear, I decided to jump on the bandwagon and try out Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost range.

I still have young skin, so the main focus for me is to preserve my skin by taking care of it now. That way, I’ll have less of a need to try and “reverse the clock” in 10 years time. I’ve been using the Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost products for about 5 weeks now, and it fits perfectly into my low maintenance skincare routine.

I’ve only been using two products from the range: the Hydro Boost Night Concentrate and the Hydro Boost eye roll-on. I find they work best when used with a freshly cleansed face, before bedtime. The eye-roll on  is specially formulated for use around the delicate eye area, with the added bonus of the metal roller stimulating circulation further reducing tired, puffy eyes. I usually only use these products once a day, however the eye roll-on is a good product to use in the morning, if you haven’t quite had your 8 hours of beauty sleep.

As for the night concentrate, it works great, but you aren’t going to want to wear it during the day. The formula is quite thick (so it won’t sit well under your makeup during the day!) That said, it is intended to be used at night, and it fulfils its purpose well. The cream feels a little like a gel mask when you spread it on, but it doesn’t feel sticky or heavy once it’s on your face. The cream is filled with Vitamin E enriched beads that melt into your skin when you apply it, and along with the specially formulated Progressive Release System, ensures your skin is being continuously hydrated throughout the night.

Together, these products will leave you with soft, smooth skin in the morning, that is also visibly plumped (in a glowing, youthful way, not a chubby way!!) I personally use them every 2-3 nights, and definitely recommend you try out the hydration trend!

Have you used this product before? Do you have another hydrating product that works well too? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
