Neutrogena Hydro Boost Press Launch: The secret to soft and supple skin

Neutrogena’s latest breakthrough in skin care technology finally launched last May 31, 2011 at Whitespace, Makati City. DSC02057Introducing, the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Line!IMG_0994With its breakthrough 12-hour progressive release system, your skin will continuously get up to 200% hydration it needs. It reduced dull appearance, fine lines and cracks to reveal smoother and more supple skin with a combination of advanced hydrating elements.

This line is your answer to these problems:

  1. premature wrinkles
  2. loss of radiance
  3. sensitive skin accompanied by irritation, blotchiness and itchiness

As I’ve mentioned in my introductory post about the Neutrogena Challenge, there are numerous skin dehydrating activities that we mindlessly do everyday. I expounded on these activities more in this post. Since we cannot really avoid these situations all the time, Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Regimen is to the rescueDSC02078Hydro Boost helps promote the skin’s natural ability to create and hold on to its moisture to address the root cause of inner dryness. It contained technology that retains water longer for intense hydration to revitalize dry and tired skin.”

Now let’s go through the the products in the Hydro Boost line:DSC020881. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Mousse Cleansercleanses and balances skin’s moisture level. The rich lather foams away impurities, while a special hydrating agent restores skin’s natural moisture balance. For day and night use. 150ml/PHP445.50DSC020872. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Clear Lotion (Toner)—immediately tones and refines skin without causing tightness. It gives a shower of fresh hydration for a dewy complexion. Use after cleansing, for day and night. 150ml/PHP458.00DSC02078ed3.

For day and night use after Clear Lotion or Essence. 50g/PHP830.00DSC020854. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Essenceintensely moisturizing and deeply revitalizing, this rich essence powerful hydration properties to keep skin plump, bouncy, and supple. For day and night use; for intense hydration. After using the Clear Lotion, and before using the Water Gel, massage evenly to the face. 30ml/PHP999.00DSC020845. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Maskboosts skin’s moisture level 14 times. It is made with smart-fit fabric with 14,000 micro-holes to deeply infuse 25% more hydrating essence. Use as needed, at least once a week for deep and immediate hydration results. May also be used in the evening after cleansing and toning. Apply the mask and leave on for 15 minutes. Remove the mask and massage the remaining essence into your facial and neck area. Do not rinse, sleep with the essence. No need to apply the Water Gel after using the mask. 1pc/PHP198.00

Here is the reason why it works:

Utilizing the latest technology, Hyaluronic Acid is condensed and formulated into a highly effective essence. Once applied on the skin, the 12-hour “Progressive Release System” is automatically activated. Hydration is released steadily, providing up to 200% hydration to dry skin cells—hydration power that lasts the whole day. With the 12-hour Progressive Release System, it’s like providing a virtual skin reservoir to your skin, which can provide moisture to dry skin cells when they need it, helping skin stay hydrated all day long.

Now here are the key ingredients that are behind the effectiveness of the products:DSC021091. Purified Hyaluronic AcidHyaluronic Acid is the key compound that keeps our skin youthful. It works by binding to water molecules and holding up to 1,000 times its weight in moisture, resulting in more supple and smooth skin.DSC021072. Olive Extractknown for its protective, moisturizing and antioxidant qualities, it is a complex combination of fatty acids, which is very similar to out skin’s natural moisture shield.DSC021113. Glycerinhelps bind moisture to the skin’s surface for optimal softening effect, and is a potent skin firming agent to stimulate natural improvement of the skin’s support systems.DSC02114Reasons why consumers like it:

  1. immediate results can be seen and felt
  2. can be used in conjunction with or alternately with your current skin care regimen such as the Neutrogena Fine Fairness line
  3. it provides the solution to dehydrated skin without the excess oils that most other products offer


Ideal skin is hydrated skin.

  8. Hi i wanna try this product since i have a dull looking face and usually gets oily during mid of the day. Is it ok to use only the cleanser, toner and water gel only? coz its kinda pricey for me if im going to avail the complete set, since im just an ordinary girl who used to stay at home. oh and have u tried using their fine fairness? I dont know which of the two shall I avail. Can you give some advice? Thanks

  9. Hi Anonymous. Whatever you said is perfect! Cleanser, toner and water gel would do! I haven't tried the Fine Fairness line, dear. But if you're like me who has unbelievably dry skin, go for the Hydroboost! I guarantee you.
