Hello, my loves!
The weather is warming up and we all want sun protection anyways on an everyday basis, so I thought I’d review the new Neutrogena Hydro Boost Sunscreen.
I’ve been using this product for about four weeks now, and it has completely changed the way I look at facial sunscreens. Some of you may have used some of the hydro boost products from Neutrogena in the past, like their gel moisturizer which is particularly popular.
This sunscreen is on the similar texture as their gel moisturizer. It is a thin consistency formula with major hydrating properties. I like the fact that you can apply this sunscreen and it will easily absorb into your skin instead of sitting there wondering when it ever will.
As for the actual protection, it comes in SPF 30 and SPF 50, and it provides UVA/UVB protection. It comes with Helioplex which is a formula made with avobenzone and oxybenzone which apparently are able to absorb the sun rays instead of your skin doing so. This protective product is also water resistant which means you can sweat or swim and it will still keep the same amount of protection!
The smell is also a factor I hear many people complaining about with regular sunscreen. This does not smell like regular sunscreen whatsoever, but rather has a softer floral scent. The scent does not linger and to me is not overpowering.
Wearing sunscreen under makeup is something I do every day, so it is important for me to not look extra greasy or too matte and this does neither. It is simply like applying a light gel moisturizer on your face and that’s it! You can barely tell you’re wearing it and it does not mess with the texture of your makeup, – if anything it adds a soft, radiant glow without the oil. This sunscreen also does not break me out! Whatsoever! And I have very sensitive skin when it comes to sunscreen.
Lastly, the price is unbelievable for the amount of product you are getting. You are paying $10 USD (bought at Target) for 3.0 fl oz. (88mL). I think it is well worth practicing safe sun for the price, especially with how nice of a product you are getting.
I am beyond impressed with this sunscreen and I’ve struggled for a long time to find one that doesn’t break me out, doesn’t cost a lot, is enough SPF, etc. I’m so glad I picked this up! You should definitely try this if you are looking for a non-detectable sunscreen. I wish it hadn’t taken them so long to come out with this formula, but it’s a good thing they did now.
I know I can sometimes rant and rave about many products on my blog but it is often because I want you to know the products I am loving as opposed to mediocre products. However, I will try to add in some beware before buys!
As always, I hope you enjoyed my Sunday review! I really love this time of the week. As always, let me know your opinion if you’ve tried this or if you have a sunscreen you love!
