1 Week Experience: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel with Hyaluronic Acid Fragrance Free
I have a new face wash! I’m running low on Olay Regenerist Hyaluronic + Peptide 24 Revitalizing Facial Cleanser and needed a new face wash. I finally came to the conclusion and chose Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel with Hyaluronic Acid Fragrance Free. Neutrogena facial cleansers aren’t too bad. I’ve had some success with some of their facial cleansers in the past. Ugh! My favorite face wash was the Neutrogena Visibly Even Daily Face Wash. It was discontinued, and I still can’t get over it! It was an amazing cleanser that did a darn good job at cleaning my skin without stripping my skin, not causing breakouts, and who knows if it brightened my skin. All I know is that I stuck with it for so many years until it was gone. It didn’t clog my pores or irritate my skin. Just an amazing face wash that worked well with my skin type. It was also a cream cleanser. It’s so hard to find a good cream cleanser that works on my skin nowadays. I’ve been using gel cleansers ever since after moving on from it. 😢
So what is Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel with Hyaluronic Acid Fragrance Free? This is a gentle face wash that thoroughly cleanses the skin while boosting hydration in the skin. It’s fragrance free. It contains hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture. It effectively washes away dirt, oil, and makeup without leaving the skin feeling dry or tight. It’s dermatologist-tested, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, gentle even on sensitive skin including eczema-prone, atopic dermatitis-prone, and acne-prone skin. Cleanser was formulated without soap, parabens, dyes, phthalates, and alcohol. So I’ve been using this face wash for 1 week. Here’s my experience and thoughts on it!
My 1 Week Experience with Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel with Hyaluronic Acid Fragrance Free:
Texture & Application
This cleanser is a gel. It comes in a pump bottle. I chose the big bottle (16 fl. oz.). They have smaller sizes of this product, but I just took a chance and went with the 16 fl. oz. bottle, haha! Who knows what might happen!! This product doesn’t have fragrance, but it has a scent to it. It smells like chemicals to me. I think I just have a very good nose. The smell isn’t bothersome, and I was able to use the face wash without any issues. With this cleanser, 1-2 pumps is only needed. I try my best to stick with a single pump to save a little bit of money. Sometimes I use 2 to get a more thorough cleanse. But I usually stick to one pump. It’s more than enough for the whole face including the neck and chest area. I cleanse all of these areas of my body when I’m washing my face, especially at night. The product lathers and foams up nicely. I haven’t had this foamy experience with a cleanser in a while. The foam from the Neutrogena face wash is pretty exciting, lol. I love how it lathers up as I’m washing my face. It feels like it’s doing something and removing dirt, oil, debris, and other gunk from my oily skin. I love it. When rinsed off, my skin is left feeling moisturized and clean. It didn’t strip my skin. I would say that this face wash is a gentle, moisturizing cleanser that worked very well on my oily, dry-prone skin.
Cleanses the skin without leaving it feeling dry.
This facial cleanser cleans the skin without leaving it feeling dry. Even when my moisture barrier was impaired, it didn’t burn my face. It washes my face so much better than what I was previously using (Olay). I can feel the difference in my skin. It just feels cleaner and more fresh afterwards. I love the way it makes my skin feel…clean and moisturized. That’s what a cleanser is supposed to do, right??? Yeaaapppp!
I didn’t get any breakouts from this face wash. It actually helped to remove excess sebum without irritating my skin. I noticed less blackheads on my nose. It hasn’t gotten rid of my blemishes, but it hasn’t done anything to make it worse. It cleans my skin well without over drying it. I’ve said this many times now. This face wash is the perfect combination of cleansing and hydrating the skin. I think that’s the best aspect of this face wash. It doesn’t dry it out, so it doesn’t irritate it and cause more issues to the skin. For acne, my skin tolerated this face wash pretty well. It’s a simple, basic, moisturizing face wash without any actives (if that’s what you’re looking for).
I’m glad I gave Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel a try. It worked so much better on my skin than I expected. Much, much better than the cleanser I was using before (Olay Regenerist Hyaluronic + Peptide 24 Revitalizing Facial Cleanser). I didn’t feel like Olay was cleaning my skin well enough. It did, but it could’ve been better. That’s when I noticed a huge difference in the cleanliness of my skin when using Neutrogena vs. Olay. Maybe I just have super oily skin that Neutrogena products just work better for me. Using Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel twice a day has been awesome. I always look forward to using it too, since it lathers, foams up, and cleanses the skin very well without making the skin look and feel stripped of its natural moisture. I feel that the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel is a good cleanser for oily, acne-prone skin people that want a product that cleanses (has that foaming texture) and doesn’t irritate the skin. After using it for a week, I’ve made the switch to Neutrogena (from Olay). It’s working better on my skin. It helps to remove leftover makeup too. Even though I use oil to remove my makeup. This cleanser helps to remove that same oil + other excess dirt, debris, and makeup from my facial skin. I don’t have any negative thing to say about it as of yet. I’m only 1 week in. I’m loving the results so far. It’s a good cleanser. Look forward to a new update within a few weeks or months in!
