Hydration is a vital and important step in my normal skincare routine. After cleansing, I never forget to hydrate and moisturise before I leave house or apply my makeup. Recently, I've noticed that since returning from my diving trip, I have a couple of dry spots over my cheeks area. This could probably be due to the exposure to saltwater, which literally sucked up the moisture on my skin :(
At the right time, I've got a chance to participate in a social experiment video shoot, where I was provided with an unknown brand of serum and moisturiser, which I had to use daily for about 2 weeks. Initially, I was quite skeptical as I have tried many moisturisers previously, but to no avail. Perhaps I have sensitive skin and nothing really works for me.
However, after trying out both the serum and moisturiser which was given to me, I noticed that there were less dry patches around my face and my skin was improving with a brighter complexion. My skin was supple and it was easier to apply makeup with an even skin tone.
I was curious and excited to find out what brand of moisturising products it was, which worked like magic on my skin!

When I found out, I was really amazed! I am a loyal user of Neutrogena products, and recently they've introduced two easy steps which is essential to moisturise, repair and keep your skin properly hydrated. I have included these two must-have items from Hydro Boost range, Neutrogena Hydro Boost Capsule in Serum & Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel in my normal skincare regime. Both the products act to boost skin moisture levels up to 137%* and using them together really made a difference in hydrating my skin, keeping it plumped and moisturized all day. My current skincare routine is to apply both the products onto my cleansed skin in the morning and there’s no need to worry about dry skin at all, while I work in an air-conditioned environment, or out in the city.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Capsule In Serum 30 ml (RM 75.90)
First step is the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Capsule in Serum. I find that the serum is very effective, it's not sticky at all and it blends well when I apply it on my face and neck area. When you pump it out, you'll find that its slightly bubbly or foamy, that's just the antioxidant capsules, with its active ingredients working its miracle on the skin.
The serum instantly quenches and replenishes the moisture while repairing the skin, to prevent from reoccurring dryness. It rebuilds the skin barrier to lock in the moisture and protects the skin as well.
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel 50g (RM 63.70)
The next step is Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel. This moisturiser helps your skin to achieve 5 dimensions of the ideal healthy skin; hydrated, luminous, bouncy, firm and smooth. With the in-built Moisture Sensor Complex, there is science behind this product. It contains Hyaluronic Acid which boosts hydration for smooth supple skin all day and Antioxidant Olive Extract which repair the skin's barrier.
The gel has a very light texture with a nice, refreshing fragrance to it. This provides you 48 hours of hydration**, so I find that I don't even need to reapply my moisturiser mid-day.
