With the winter almost over and spring around the corner, the skin needs more care. And recently I partnered with Neutrogena to try their Hydro Boost Skin Care Line, which is perfect for my needs. All the products here address skin dehydration may be from lack of sleep, stress, to exercise and not drinking enough water. How many of you are guilty of doing that, I am for sure. And hydration is foundation of healthy skin, which we all want. Formulated with Hyaluronic Acid this Hydro Boost line replenishes water and helps improve skin’s moisture barrier, resulting in smooth and hydrated skin. I will review some products from this range today, sharing more details and my experience using them. Just before moving forward with the review, just wanted to mention that I have combination skin. My T zone gets oily and rest of face keeps dry. And now it is almost Spring but it is very cold and my skin feels dry all the time. So I personally love to use more hydrating products in this time.
