    Just OK!

    This didn't really impress me that much! I wanted something to keep my face hydrated as my skin was feeling really dry, I didn't think it really made much of a difference. Its a really nice feeling moisturiser and sinks into the skin easily but just didn't do the job I'd hoped it would.

    Love this lotion!

    This is a great all-rounder for all skin types! Though it’s marketed for dry skin, I’ve found it works well on more oily skin too. The gel formula means it sinks in quickly and doesn’t leave a greasy texture. It smells fresh and a little goes a long way. I would recommend and will continue to purchase myself!

    Great but fragrance is strong

    I use this product in my summer skincare routine because it is light yet moisturizing and cooling. I love everything about this cream except for the fragrance... The scent is just too strong.

    My Saviour

    I've struggled with face moisturizer and lotions for as long as I can remember either two scenarios happen;
    -I find a moisturizer that works but soon after my face slowly begins to revolt and itchiness and a tight feeling begins to happen.
    -Im forced to apply multiple moisturizers because one after another does not work and I'm just trying to find some relief from the itchiness and tight feeling.
    When I came across this Hydro blast gel moisturizer I decided to give it a go, I've never used a gel moisturizer and believed that it could hydrate my skin more thoroughly in that form. I also know that Neutrogena was a brand that made one of the other face moisturizers that sort of mostly work for me so it was worth a shot.

    BE AWARE- The first couple days of using this product I was not applying it correctly. What your going to want to do with gel moisturizers is apply a thin layer of the product on your skin and allow it to absorb itself into your skin (not rubbing the product into your skin which is what I was doing) after learning that my opinion completely changed.

    I've been using this product for almost two weeks now and at this point with other moisturizers I'd be doing a second application about 10 minutes later hoping for relief of that tight feeling I've mentioned. I'm not having to do that with this product! There is no itchy feeling, or tightness and no need for a second application.

    The consistency of this product is well, a gel. A watery gel not a thick gel. It's light weight and you can feel that it's hydrating. Glides easily across your skin. It absorbs into your skin leaving unbelievably soft, it does not make your skin feel greasy.

    The price is a bit much for a regular drugstore product (which most are around or under $10) but for a gel cream it is a steal. I found this product at Walmart for $20 CAD (I also found it on Amazon last week on sale for $14 so picked up my next container). I do wish there was a bit more in the container, or at least not as much wasted plastic for a thick container. Though I find you don't need to much of the product to cover the entire face.

    Non comedogenic meaning it won't clog pores. Hydrating ingredients including hyaluronic acid and olive extracts.

    After my research for my oily T-zone and understanding that I was producing more oil in those areas due to dehydration I began to make sure I was applying a tiny bit more of this moisturizer to my forehead and I've found its helped me relieve my oily T-zone. Also as of yet I don't have wrinkles (that I can notice or worry about) but the hydration in this product can help prevent aging and wrinkles which are often caused by dehydration.

    My go to moisturizer

    I love this moisturizer both in the gel and cream versions
    They sink into your skin so well and absorb so brilliantly
    Some products can break me out in spots but this never does
    I find it's worth shopping about as the price can vary in different shops
    But I'd recommend this to anyone who struggles to find a good moisturizer that won't leave your skin greasy or with breakouts
    I hope Neutrogena never stop making this product as I have so much love for it

    It's OK

    I loved this stuff when I started to use it. Would leave my skin feeling smooth and just amazing. But I started to break out. Not 100% sure it was the product.

    Nice and moisturizing

    I really like this product. I received it free for testing purposes. I’m trying it out, I found it to be extremely light, and hydrating. Some moisturizers do not absorb well into my skin, and end up sitting there and clogging my pores. This one did not do that. My skin absorbed it really quickly, leaving my skin moisturized and clean feeling. This definitely is my new favourite. I love that you can find it easily at any drugstore, and that the price is affordable compared to other big brand skincare names. I highly recommend giving it a try if you’re looking for a new moisturizer.

    Works for me

    I had struggled for many wayward to find a basic moisturiser without spf which can be used any time of the day, all year round and this is it. Very soothing for skin, no breakouts and no irritation. Can be used after chemical peels , facials, scrubs etc at night because it’s very calming. Will buy forever. Can be used by sensitive skin

    Amazing!

    I love this facial cream to use day or night. Hydrates easily and isn’t sticky or cakey. I love that it has hydraulonic acid in it to help keep moisture in

    Would never change moisturiser now

    I actually have acne prone skin so use a lot of products that include salicylic acid which dries out your skin. I got this moisturiser to use and I would never even try anything else, it hydrates my skin but the thing I love the most is that it rubs in and dries so there's no wet, greasy feeling. Definitely a must buy.
