Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Cleanser

Anyway, about two weeks ago I was looking to replace my Neutrogena pink gapefruit face wash when I came across the Hydro Boost Water Gel Cleanser. I had seen it on some of my favorite Influencers’ IG so I really wasn’t hesitant to pick it up.

Fun fact, Neutrogena is one of the very first brands I ever reached out to when I started blogging. I had been using their products way before I started so it made sense. Not to them LOL. I never got a response from them. LOL cry with me.

Hydro Boost Water Gel Cleanser

This cleanser is very interesting because although it’s technically a foaming gel, it doesn’t contain the usual surfactants that strip your skin of hydration. What’s great about this is that cleansing with this product actually adds to your hydration routine rather than taking away from it and I believe we all know this is a hydration stan blog.


I think it’s incredibly well-priced – where I bought it. I usually only go to Clicks or Dis-chem when it comes to my skincare and toiletries but I recently discovered Medi-rite pharmacy in Checkers. They stock the same product at a much lower price. Before you ask, their products aren’t expired.

If you know anything about business then you know that at some stores we basically pay for the ambience, shopping experience, company name, their reputation etc so considering Checkers is somewhat basic, their prices are reasonable.

Dischem: R99.95

Clicks: R124.99

Medirite: R55.95


It comes in a blue plastic bottle with a pump which is a fave because the pump allows you to control the amount of product one uses and the plastic is safe. I can be a little clumsy so anything that comes in a plastic is safe for me and my money.


First of all, this cleanser contains hyaluronic acid (HA) which is so powerful at pulling moisture to the surface of your skin making the skin appear more dewy and younger because it improves skin elasticity. You already know, I love everything and anything that gives me dewy/glowy skin and keeps my skin youthful.

The consistency is runny jelly-like but very lightweight and has a lovely refreshing scent. The colourless product turns into a white foam when massaged into the skin and leaves skin feeling supple and fresh.

If you have used it I would like to know what you think of it and if you haven’t used it, are you likely to give it a try?
