Happy holidays everyone! I hope those of you who celebrate Christmas enjoyed yours. Hopefully, by the time this is posted, I’ll be at the mall blowing all of the gift cards on day-after-Christmas sales (looking at you LUSH!). Today, I wanted to highlight a product I’ve been using for the last several months that I’ve fallen in love with! The Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel is a lightweight moisturizer that I use daily, and it’s phenomenal!
Its active ingredient is hyaluronic acid, which is also found in Glossier’s Super Bounce, another favorite of mine. The idea is that HA penetrates the skin and leave you looking plump and moisturized instead of sallow and dry. I can fully say that this face gel does just that! I got the regular formula, but I know that they also have one for extra dry skin as well. Even though I have oily skin, this gel didn’t feel too heavy and it sank in fairly quickly after I applied it! A little bit of product goes a long way, so it has lasted me since October, and I’m still only about 2/3 of the way done.
The gel itself smells absolutely divine, like a load of fresh laundry. I use it in the morning because the cool feeling wakes me up pretty much instantly. The packaging also instantly updated my top shelf status! The cool blue jar with a white lid just sits so well. I know most people aren’t super into packaging, but that also plays a big role in what kind of beauty I do and don’t buy (which will make next week’s post a treat!).
I purchased my jar from Ulta for $20, mainly because of a)the rewards points and b)Neutrogena had a BOGO 40% off promo and I needed more makeup wipes! However, you can purchase the exact same size (1.7 oz) for $15 at Target, and don’t forget to check the Cartwheel app for any coupons!
Time is running out to enter my 4th-anniversary giveaway! Go enter, share it with a friend, and I’ll be back Thursday! Have an awesome day, everyone!
