Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel cleansers review

These two blue gel cleansers from Neutrogena are a novelty. In the world of foamy, drying and squeaky clean cleansers, they are a breath of fresh air.
Neutrogena's Hydro Boost range with 'Hyaluronic Acid' is amazing for dry skin. I've used a lot of products from this range but the Water Gel Cleanser just might be my number 1 pick. As ya'll know I have dry skin and every product I put on my face has to add something to it. I stay away from products that take moisture and good skin oils away.

I was sent these two cleanser buddies from Neutrogena a wee while ago and have been using them religiously ever since. I have had no dry skin episode and my skin is as plump as ever.
Fun fact! Why is it that for the past few weeks everyone I tell that I'm 30 years old is surprised. They say I don't look my age. Obviously that has me elated. I must be doing something right with my skincare game. Or is it the zeal for life in my eyes? I actually don't feel 30 at all. Weird?

Neutrogena Gelee Milk Cleanser and Water Gel Cleanser are best of buddies. I have been using the Gelee Milk Cleanser for taking off my daily makeup and then following up with the Water Gel cleanser to wash off my face. They work a treat!

Neutrogena recommends gelee milk to be put on a cotton pad and I agree. It's easier that way. Two squirts on a cotton pad and rub it on the ze face to take off all the makeup, super gentle if I may add. It doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes at all. This reminds me of the cleansing milks I used to use back home in India. It takes off light everyday makeup with 2 cotton pads. Even though the cleanser claims to take waterproof makeup off, I feel I need way too much product to achieve that result. It's almost too gentle. Neutrogena also suggests no rinsing after gelee milk. I say go for water! Always sleep with clean skin, unless you're hung over :p

I then follow this with the water gel cleanser which is amazing. It's foamy but gentle & leaves a moisture film on skin. The face looks very clean but is not dried out.

Both these cleansers are oil-free, soap-free, non-comedogenic and suitable for sensitive skin. Both of them retail for $16.99 NZD and are available through pharmacies and grocery retailers NZ wide.

If it was one product I had to pick up from the current Neutrogena range, it'll be the water gel cleanser. It works for for all skin types (including sensitive!) & can be used as both morning & night cleanser. I'm a fan!
I still use a good makeup remover before it to take off most of the gunk. Who am I kidding? I'm lazy and Neutrogena's Night Calming Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes are my best friend.

I feel like the gelee milk was a nice concept but the product on its own wasn't very effective. It definitely needs to be paired with a gel cleanser. However, if you don't use much makeup, it's not too bad either, specially for sensitive or very dry skin.

I highly recommend checking out the Hydro Boost Water Gel cleanser. It's my new must have. Now, we have a tie between Neutrogena Micellar Gel to Foam Cleanser and Water gel cleanser. So hard to pick one. I love both.
