Hi, everyone, it’s Ashley—one of the co-founders of Skinterest! 🙂 As someone who’s suffered from dry skin since I was a baby (my mother can attest to the boatloads of lotion she’d lather on my skin with little to no improvement), I have been on the constant search for a good moisturizer that doesn’t clog my pores.
Recently, I’ve been using the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel with Hyaluronic Acid and the results are promising. Hyaluronic acid AKA “Hallelujah acid” really works! I can literally feel my skin being soaked in hydrating goodness when I put this cream on. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar in your body (Glycosaminoglycans or GAGs to be specific) that is essential for providing moisture to the skin. Since skin aging is associated with loss of moisture, hyaluronic acid also helps improve the elasticity and texture of your skin, giving it a nice healthy sheen. My dermatologist even commented that my skin’s texture had been looking very healthy after using the cream for a few weeks. Not only is hyaluronic acid great for providing skin moisture, it can even help heal wounds and fight gum disease.
I’ve also been recently experiencing adult acne and what’s great about this cream is that it’s also non-comedogenic so it won’t further block pores.
The price range is also reasonable, averaging around $15-$20 from the retailers I saw online.

The only issue I have been experiencing is knowing which little blue jar is mine whenever I go on trips! It appears that this hydrating gel has already become a staple beauty product in many homes.
