With the warm weather here, and the air con on full last to keep us cool, it is not only our thirst that needs quenching, but our skin too.

In some cases fine lines on the face can be a sign the skin is dehydrated, as well as dry patches, but there is a solution for that.

Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Water Gel is one of Amazon’s top-rated beauty products for nourishing the skin, and has been hailed a “great moisturiser” for hydrating the skin and protecting the skin’s barrier.

Why we rate it

This gel includes hyaluronic acid, which is a key ingredient to look out for especially when your skin needs to be hydrated.

Hyaluronic acid absorbs up to 1,000 times its weight in water, and helps to lock in moisture throughout the day.

The gel formula means the product is lightweight, oil-free and non-greasy.

Plus it has received, on average, 4.4 out of five stars on Amazon.

What the reviews say

Rated by almost 1,500 customers, 72% of which have been ranked five stars. Happy customers have said:

  • “LOVE THIS! I'm already onto my second jar. It's changed my skin. I have combination skin (which leans more to the dry side) and I've always struggled to find a moisturiser that is hydrating without being heavy/greasy. It soaks right in and is just slightly tacky to the touch which is perfect for applying makeup over. My skin looks fresher and clearer, and it hasn't broke me out (I have troubled acne prone skin and I haven't had any more breakouts than I usually would).”

  • “I vary between this and the Clinique moisture surge, depending on how my pockets are lined at the time. This is an excellent moisturiser that doesn’t make me go oily or sits uncomfortably heavy on my face. My dermatologist recommended it to me to stop wasting my money with more expensive creams that don’t do anything different (though sometimes I can’t resist).”

  • “I bought this as i had all dry skin in patches on my face, some one recommended this moisturiser on a beauty page on Facebook, so I decided to give it a try and after 3 or 4 days using this all the dry skin had gone, i use this religiously now and no dry skin has come back, love it.”

To feel even more hydrated, one buyer advised:

  • “ I find that applying it while my face is still slightly damp from the shower is the best, really makes a difference in retaining the water!”
