The Neutrogena Hydro Boost gel moisturiser is a Strategist UK staple — it has featured in our top-ten most-bought for over a whole year. It converted staff writer Chris Mandle, who orders a jar every month, and has been known to keep it in the fridge when it’s hot outside. Chris writes: “During the heat wave, I actually kept it in the fridge, and the cooling sensation felt like dunking my head in Tooting Bec Lido. I also really like the fact it’s designed not to clog your pores, as thicker moisturisers (particularly Bulldog) have made my skin feel kind of smothered in the past. My skin feels as hydrated and soft as if I’d worn a sheet mask, and it’s so soothing I’ve even used it to ease the pain of sunburn on the rare occasion I’ve not put enough SPF on.”
The moisturiser has been recommended by experts for dry-skin types, the rosacea-prone, and even pregnant women. It contains glycerin and hyaluronic acid, meaning it can hydrate skin without the need for emollients, which can make skin feel heavy. And it’s both alcohol- and oil-free, too. It’s now half price for Prime Day: £6.50, down from £13.
