I love a deal—especially a skincare deal. And, for me, a serum with weightless hydration that works to keep my skin dewy, smooth, and even for $23.99 is the deal of a lifetime. So, let me tell you about my new favorite friend, Neutrogena® Hydro Boost Hyaluronic Acid Serum.

What It Is

It’s a fragrance-free, non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, serum that’s suitable for all skin types (so don’t worry if you have sensitive skin, this will work for you). “Serums are concentrated yet lightweight formulas that absorb quickly into the skin making them a great post-cleansing step in a skin routine for all skin types and tones,” explains Dr. Robinson, board-certified medical and cosmetic dermatologist. The boost of hydration even visibly minimizes pores, helps to even your skin tone and texture, and leaves your face happy and dewy.

The Ingredients

The serum offers 24-hour hydration (courtesy of the brand’s 17% Hydration Complex with Pro vitamin B5, hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and other skin conditioners). “By combining low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid with the gold standard humectant glycerin, vitamin B5, and trehalose, the Neutrogena® Hydro Boost Hyaluronic Acid Serum delivers a 17% hydration complex to the skin to attract water nine layers deep within skin’s surface for optimal hydration,” says Dr. Robinson. Hyaluronic acid is the hero ingredient, as it’s an essential hydrator naturally found in your skin that binds to water and holds it in for more supple and smooth skin.

The Texture

This lightweight serum feels fresh, renewing, and comfortable to apply to your skin. It’s not greasy or thick (but it’s not watery, either) and offers the perfect potent punch of hydration as you smooth it on.

The Routine

After cleansing with the Neutrogena® Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel, I use Hydro Boost Hyaluronic Acid Serum while my face is still a bit damp. Then massage in the Hydro Boost Gel-Cream on top to lock in all that delicious moisture and help strengthen my skin’s moisture barrier. According to the brand, pairing this serum with the gel-cream provides 3X the hydrating power* (*based on 3X the hydrating ingredients of Gel Cream alone). I can’t get over how lovely the finish is, how healthy-looking and happy it makes my skin, and the glow it imparts when I’m done.
