    Works well, don't like the scent

    Tried this moisturizer as I had heard a lot of hype around hyaluronic acid and I have oily/combo skin so I thought a gel cream was a good idea for my skin type. I liked the moisturizer OK, I feel like it did its job of being a decent lightweight gel but I don't like the scent. It reminds me of fabric softener! If they do bring out a fragrance free version in Canada I might be tempted to try again - on sale. This is pricey for a basic drug store moisturizer as well, IMO

    Not hydrating

    The price for this product is great but unfortunately it hasn't helped my skin as much as I was hoping.
    Feels great going on light and refreshing no greasy feel...probably best for someone with normal skin type.
    My skin is mature and on the dry side so unfortunately wasn't good for me.

    Great hydration

    It feels light but is very effective. I use it twice a day and my skin is never dry. For the price it is totally worth it. I look more awake and makeup on goes on easier.

    Good for summer, not so much for winter

    I tried out this product during the winter time and found that it did not keep my skin hydrated at all! My skin felt really dry in 30 minutes and I had to reapply. I tried it again recently in the summer and it worked a lot better. I think that if you live in warmer climates it would work better! I would layer a serum under if you're using it in the winter / cold climates.
    It smells really nice and goes on really well.

    Great addition to my routine

    I was impressed with Hydro boost when I tried it, as it left my skin feeling like it had a nice refreshing drink of water. Moisture is key in skin care especially as we mature, and this is definitely worth trying out

    Great as a non-comedogenic moisturiser, but not rich enough

    This feels light and very pleasant to use, and hasn't caused me any breakouts or blackheads at all, which for someone with combination skin is always a concern, but it's definitely only a lightweight moisturiser: it seems to have very little effect on patches of dry skin and simply isn't moisturising enough for those looking for serious hydration.

    HYDRO BOOST

    Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream is very moisturizing for those cold winters. The scent is my favorite part of this product. It was a little oily which I did not like, but otherwise, great product.

    I stopped buying this product!

    I love the smell and the feel of this product and it goes on so smoothly. It’s a little pricey considering it’s a drugstore brand. I used this for 4 months but my face was still dry. I find that it just sits like a film on top of my skin and can be rubbed off in little pieces. It makes my skin feel wonderful but I didn’t find it very effective.

    Great product but not best suited for very dry skin

    I loved the way this gel cream felt on my skin, it glides on smooth and cool which feels really refreshing. The only thing I didn’t love was that with my extra dry skin it didn’t seem to quite be enough for me, and I also found It didn’t last very long (but maybe I was just using too much at a time to make up for my dryness.)

    Great for daytime

    This works well under makeup. It dries down nicely, without leaving a tacky feeling on the skin. It does have a strong fragrance, but it is fresh and pleasant.
