    Nice light moisturizer

    I found this cream very light and moisturizing. I have problem skin with oilyness and acne. I find a little goes a long way. I haven't any huge breakouts. I tend to have sensitive skin as well so I need to be careful what I use. I would tell anyone to give a try.

    Everything I want in a moisturizer!

    I love this moisturizer! It absorbs well and a little bit goes a long way. It doesn't feel heavy at all but leaves my skin soft. No scent. Good value for the money.

    It has fragrance and dyes

    I recently purchased this product because I wanted a good gel moisturizer. Neutrogena's hydroboost provides a good price point compared to many of the higher name brands. The one down side is that this product contains blue dye and fragrance. I found the fragrance very overwhelming and both this and the dye are unnecessary ingredients that just irritate skin. I found the product to moisturize well, and the moisture was long lasting. I really enjoy the lightweight gel texture But I could not keep using because of the fragrance was to strong for my liking and the dye was slightly irritating to my skin.
    Luckily I found they also make a version of this for extra dry skin which is fragrance and dye free.

    Not was I had hoped for.

    I tried this moisturizer as my face was a little drier because it was winter. I was going to try a higher priced item but then thought i'd give this a try as it was on sale as the store and I'd heard good things. Well, I was less than impressed. About 30minutes after I put it on I felt like my face had dried up and need to put something else on my face. It also felt tacky on the skin so I didn't like the feel of that either. I ended up just using it as 'extra moisturizer' for the middle of the day if I felt I needed an extra layer of something. I couldn't wait to be done the jar.

    Leaves my face feeling more dry

    so I have the body hydra boost and it has a scent to it that leaves your body feeling weird and kind ya dry in my opinion, since winter my face and body have been super dry so I thought this product would help but it really has not, I don’t enjoy the fragrance in it either. I would apply it every day after a shower day and night and it has not helped my skin whatsoever. Kinda disappointed since it was a little pricey.

    Feels so nice!

    I bought this face cream for my boyfriend when he got wind burn on his face and his skin was extremely dry. Our other face creams made his skin burn since it was so dry and sensitive. This face cream feels super light and cool on the skin. Would recommend for anyone with dry, sensitive skin.

    Meh!

    I should disclose that my face can be extremely dry but in saying that this did absolutely nothing for my face I had to apply twice in a 15 minute time span as I felt literally no hydration at all. However, the extra-dry version is amazing (great price), way better hydrating properties and way better results if you have very dry skin.

    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

    Good for Oily/Combination Skin

    I purchased this cream because I heard it was an affordable dupe for the Clinique Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator. While I will say this cream is very good for its price, I do think that it does not hydrate my skin as much as I'd like. When I use it on my whole face, I find that after some time the areas on my cheeks and chin become really dry. Since I have combination skin with an oilier T zone, I find putting the Neutrogena cream on my forehead and nose area and then using a different cream for my cheeks and chin is really good! Therefore, I'd recommend this cream if you have oily or combination skin. Also, I do love the glass jar it comes in and the light scent.
