Neutrogena Hydro Boost Multi-Vitamin Booster Review

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Multi-Vitamin Booster Review
Neutrogena says "this serum instantly quenches dry skin, repairs the skin’s moisture barrier and protects against reoccurring dryness. The pearl serum contains purified Hyaluronic Acid which acts as a self-hydrating system for your skin. That’s because it holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water, replenishing moisture throughout the day for 24 hour hydration. The Anti-oxidant capsules powercharge the serum with Vitamin E when the pump is pressed, to energise and boost the look of dull skin." The Hydro Boost Multi-Vitamin Booster contains 30ml (1 fl oz) and retails for $29.99AUD ($19.99USD). Neutrogena is not cruelty free. This hydrating serum was made in South Korea.

Neutrogena's Hydro-Boost Multi-Vitamin Booster completely drew me in with it's aquatic aesthetic. The translucent blue bottle showcases floating bubbles of encapsulated ingredients that burst as the leave the silver pump. Fun and functional, but unfortunately it seems like it isn't recyclable.

The Hydro Boost Multi-Vitamin Booster dispenses as a clear gel with white speckling from the burst bubbles. Generally I apply two to two and a half pumps of this serum when using as a standalone product, but I've also occasionally mixed a pump into my moisturizer for an extra boost of hydration. This hydrating serum is practically weightless and sinks right in, with no tacky feeling left behind. Used alone or as a mix-in, the Hydro Boost Multi-Vitamin Booter is nicely hydrating and leaves my skin feeling fresh, comfortable, and soft. This serum hasn't had much of an visible impact on my skin, but it's one of those products that definitely makes a difference in how it feels.

Neutrogen'a Hydro Boost Multi-Vitamin Booster is made of a mix of hydrating ingredients like water, glycerin, and glycols, with a big dose of niacinamide (an ingredient I love, and the real reason I bought it, aside from the bubbly vibes). Beyond the preservative phenoxyethanol are small amounts of skin conditioning ingredients like arginine, carrageenan, and Vitamins E and B5. To be honest, I'm surprised to see the star ingredient of the Hydro Boost line, Hyaluronic Acid, in the middle of the ingredient list as opposed to closer to the beginning, but this water retaining wonder ingredient's effects can be felt, even if it's present in >1%. My only complaint about this hydrating serum's formula is that it's quite heavily fragranced. The scent is clean and pleasant, but unnecessary and almost overpowering.

Overall I'm quite pleased with Neutrogena's Hydro Boost Multi-Vitamin Booster! I'm not sure if I'll repurchase it in the future, as I don't tend to be loyal to hydrating serums, but I enjoyed using it for sure! I went through this serum quicker than I would've liked, but to be fair I was using it twice a day and sharing it with Morgan, who used it one time and immediately became hooked! This serum runs a little pricey for the drugstore, but if you can grab it on a sale, it's a novel yet effective product!
