For as long as I can remember I have had sensitive skin. The smallest change in my skincare routine can wreck havoc on my face leaving me with breakouts, puffiness, and redness. It was early on in Junior High when I started to wear make up that I realized I had to be selective with my skincare products after suffering from a few severe allergic reactions such as swollen eye lids and face rashes. Even to this day I am skeptical to try new products and if I do feel brave enough to try one I’ll typically do it on a week when I know I have nothing going on – i.e. no social gatherings, holidays, etc. – in case I do have a reaction to it.
However, there is one brand that has been my tried and true brand for as long as I can remember. I am never nervous to try their products which is comforting for a person with extremely sensitive skin like myself.
They have such a wide variety of products that work perfectly with my skin care needs. Many of their products have become a staple in my beauty regime and I’d be lost without their Healthy Defense Moisturizer, Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover and Pore Refining Toner, all in which I use daily.
Since I was on vacation last week with limited access to e-mail I was unaware that my Influenster VoxBox was delivered so one can only imagine the excitement I felt when I opened the UPS package to see a new Neutrogena product. The timing couldn’t be any more perfect since I just spent a week at the beach soaking up sun and salty sea water which has caused my skin to appear a bit dry and flaky.
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel is an oil-free, lightweight, non-sticky gel moisturizer. It absorbs quickly into the skin and helps give your skin a hydrated look and feeling. It contains nutrient rich ingredients such as Olive Extract which is naturally found in the skin and Hyaluronic Acid which helps to strengthen as well as moisturize. It is wearable under make up and non-comedogenic which is very important to me when I choose skin care products.
I’ve only used this a few times since I received it but I couldn’t wait any longer to review it. I seriously love it. It’s in the $18 – $20 price range which is reasonable considering the quality of the product.
I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
