My Skin Care Routine (Neutrogena Hydroboost Line)

My Skin Care Routine Using the Neutrogena Hydroboost Line

During the Neutrogena Dinner and the Neutrogena Hydroboost Launching Event that I was invited to a couple of weeks back (thanks to the Neutrogena Team), I was introduced to the newest skin care line called Hydroboost. I personally think that it was perfect that I had the opportunity to attend the events since I have dry skin type. Finding products that would cater to my dry skin was actually very difficult because a lot of them give temporary remedies, and not long term ones. DSC02880

Let me now breeze you through my current skin care routine:

  • I remove my makeup using Etude House’s Eye and Lip Makeup Remover and Mascara Remover (this would cover my lips, eye makeup, brows, and gel liner)
  • The next product I use is the Neutrogena Hydroboost Mousse Cleanserthe rich lather foams away impurities while a special hydrating agent restores skin’s natural moisture balance”—this product actually melt away my remaining makeup (i.e. foundation, concealer…) It’s amazing how it makes my face so smooth after rinsing! This product comes in a pump bottle, and as you can see in the photos below, I’m almost running out; that is how much I love this cleanser.DSC02888DSC02889
  • The next step is using the Hydroboost Clear Lotionimmediately tones and refines skin without causing tightness. Gives you a shower of fresh hydration for a dewy complexion.”—this acts as a toner, simply put. It doesn’t sting the skin as other toners would. Again, more hydration is given to the skin. Just imagine that!DSC02893DSC02891
  • Next step is moisturizing. I actually choose between using this products or the next one. Let’s start with the Hydroboost Water GelPurified Hyaluronic Acid and Olive Extract continuously release moisture to the skin’s surface while boosting skin cell’s ability to retain water.”—of all the moisturizers that I have tried, this one is my #1. I cannot put into words how great this product is! It is contained in a jar, so I don’t recommend sharing as it is very unhygienic. Use spatulas, if you may. The active ingredients stated above are the culprit to the amazing hydration that this product gives to the skin. Moisturization like no other. DSC02895DSC02898DSC02906
  • When I don’t use the water gel, I use the Hydroboost Essenceintensely moisturizing and deeply revitalizing, this rich essence has powerful hydration properties to keep skin plump, soft and supple”—this is more of a serum type of moisturizer. Again, you can imagine how much moisturization my skin gets from this product. DSC02887
  • Other skin care products that I use: Pond’s Black Facial Wash, St. Ives Apricot Scrub, Queen Helene’s Mint Julep Masque

  1. lovely post!
    though, i think you should stop using the st. ives apricot scrub, i read somewhere that apricot scrubs can cause microscopic tears on the skin. try using their other scrubs like the daily microdermabrasion scrub. :)) btw, you have great skin naman, im soo jealous ;)
