What's #BehindTheGlow: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel

I know how important a good facial moisturizer is; but I have to admit, I've never invested in a high quality product for this purpose. Most of the time, I'm moving so fast that I just use regular Vaseline body lotion. Now, I'm not saying that it's a bad choice- I, personally, love Vaseline's line of lotions- but it's not the best choice for the skin on your face. Keep in mind, this skin is extra sensitive and is constantly exposed to the conditions in your surrounding environment. Whether it's dry office air, cold wind, or a hot sun, your face can take quite a beating so it's important to keep it hydrated, healthy and glowing. 
Needless to say, I was super pumped to try out Neutrogena's new Hydro Boost Water Gel from Influenster. I have always loved and trusted the Neutrogena brand, and I could tell this product was perfect for all ages and skin types. I knew right away this stuff was the real deal! 

The gel smooths easily all over your face and neck. It dries quickly with little scent (and the scent it does have is great.) It feels cool and refreshing when you put it on, which makes it perfect for soothing after a long day, or for a fresh blast to wake up in the morning. 

Despite its quick absorption, I can definitely feel the difference on my skin for hours. It feels so smooth and soft, not to mention the long-term effects: no more dryness or itchiness, plus a radiant glow! And I've only been using it about a week!
Here are a couple of my favorite things about this product:
  • It's oil-free, lightweight, and leaves no negative effect on my skin.
  • The gel can be worn under makeup, so I use it after washing my face at night and in the morning before getting ready. 
  • A little goes a long way, so I know that this jar will last me a long time!
This stuff is awesome and can be applied and dried in less than 30 seconds- which fits right into your busy schedule! 

I don't know if I'll get into a strict skin routine any time soon but I've definitely added another step. I really can't wait to see more long-term results and I would 100% recommend this product to anyone who needs a healthy moisturizer. Not to mention, this is the perfect time to repair your skin from the harsh winter weather and prep it for the summer sun that will be here before you know it!

Now tell me, what skin care products are behind YOUR glow?
