Neutrogena Hydro Boost vs Olay Age Defying Gel w/ HA DECODED


So, have you heard about all the hype about
the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Moisturizer as well as the Olay Gel Moisturizer with Hyaluronic
Acid? Well today we’re actually going to be talking
about some drugstore moisturizers. So if you’re experiencing dry skin this Winter,
you’re slathering on the body lotion, they’re not really working, we’re going to actually
break down the ingredients to see if it really lives up to its hype. So, FIELD TRIP! To the drugstore! Okay, so we’re here! I’m inside my car, and we’re about to go inside
Target. So, we’re going to review some drugstore moisturizers. And what I did is I put up a poll in the YouTube
Community, and for those of you who saw it, we’re going to do it totally based on the
votes. So today we’re going to be reviewing, of course,
the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel and Olay. Keep a look-out in the future for-, in the
YouTube Community that if we do polls, because basically the reviews are completely based
on your votes. Okay, so, when we go in, and I turn over the
moisturizers to look at the ingredients, I do first want to tell you that when the ingredients
are listed, that in order to comply, in order to submit their ingredients list that they’re
on the products, they have to follow an actual protocol in order for their products-, ingredients
to be listed on there, so they can be easily comparable to other products, and as well
as for safety reasons. So the first one is, they have to list their
products according to a standard, and it’s “INCI” — I-N-C-I — and it stands for the
International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients. And what that basically is, is it is a standardized
format in the way that they list their ingredients. The second one is, it’s listed in descending
order. And so, like I had mentioned before, when
you’re looking at an ingredients list, it usually goes from the most, what the product
contains — usually it’s going to be water — and then in descending order. And then, if it’s-, so it has to be at least
one percent. If the ingredients that are listed are less
than one percent — or, you know, one percent or less — so towards the bottom, then that
usually could be in any order. So if you see something like “FD & C Yellow”
— which is a colorant — or “Methylparaben” — which is a paraben — even though that
could be more than the other ones listed, if it’s less than one percent, they can put
it in any order. So that’s why I always say that you want to
pay attention to the first third of an ingredients list as well as the middle, because that’s
what most of the product will be made of. So the most common formulation in moisturizers
in oil-in-water formulation. You have to have more water than oil. Whenever you have more oil than water, then
what happens is the product starts to separate. So that’s why they add emulsifiers. So emulsifiers keeps the oil and water emulsion
together so it doesn’t separate. So to give you an idea, when you don’t have
emulsifiers in there, so a good example of this is Italian dressing. When you see that they’re separating, you
hav-, actually have to shake it to blend them together. So, to keep from doing that in skincare products,
and hair care products, and detergents, and all those types of things, they add emulsifiers
to keep them to stay together. Okay, so the basic categories of moisturizers
— and I have a list here because it’s quite long — and this way you can refer to your
moisturizers to see if you’re getting the most for your money. So obviously the first one is going to be
water, or in some cases Aloe Vera gel, moisturizers — so those are occlusives and humectants
— thickeners, esthers, oil-soluble ingredients, preservatives, anti-oxidants, and then stablizers. So those are all the things that you are looking
for. So even organic products that claim that they’re
“organic”, they STILL have to have preservatives in some form or another so that it doesn’t
spoil. So before we go in to Target to go ahead and
evaluate the moisturizers, if you’re finding this information useful, and you haven’t subscribed
yet, what are you waiting for? Please go ahead and SUBSCRIBE and then hit
that notification bell. I usually put up videos every Friday, to let
you know, as well as go ahead and hit that “LIKE” button. So we’re going to go in to Target right now,
so go ahead and follow me along and we’ll go ahead and make those product reviews. So I planned to review the products while
I was in the store, but since it’s early in the morning, the Target employees are actually
doing inventory and was making a bunch of background noise. So we decided to go back to the boutique and
review the products. So what I was surprised to see was some of
the anti-aging products were locked up. And the beauty industry has done an outstanding
job marketing their products so well that women are STEALING their products! If you actually evaluate their products based
on the ingredients, women are basically paying for — or in this case, trying to steal — high-priced
silicones and esthers in a jar. The active ingredients are towards the BOTTOM,
which you will see when we go back to the boutique to evaluate the products and their
ingredients. So the first one we’re going to evaluate is
the Neutrogena Hydro Boost. Okay, so now we’re going to go ahead and break
down the actual ingredients. We’re not going to go through EVERY, SINGLE,
ONE of them, because that would just take forever. So we’re just going to go over the main, the
main part of it, the first third, or so. By the way, I do want to say that when I’m
doing this review, the companies do change their ingredients every so often, and actually
they do it more often because raw materials cost so much. So it may change from the time that I make
this video. I already did notice that there was a slight
change with the Neutrogena Hydro Boost at Target versus the ingredients list on the
website. So, the first ingredient was, of course, water. The second ingredient is Dimethicone, and
this is a silicone-based polymer. It’s a large molecule made up of smaller units
bound together. It’s SYNTHETIC because it’s man-made. Used in hair conditioners, anti-frizz serums,
and creams and lotions to give skin and hair a very smooth feel and look. And it fills in fine lines and wrinkles which
is why make-up primers are mostly made up of Dimethicone. Now, the downside to this is it’s an occlusive
agent, it can form a plastic-like film over skin. So for those of you who are breakout-prone
and bumpy skin-prone it’s not recommended. It’s also NON-biodegradable, so it’s very
hard to breakdown on your skin. Some sensitive skin types and reactive skin
types can not tolerate this well. It also has Vinyl Dimethicone, which is used
to adjust the viscosity or thickness of the product. Dimethicone Crosspolymer, or Dimethiconol,
it’s a hydrogenated synthetic silicone, similar to Dimethicone, and it’s basically a non-greasy
lubricant, and basically gives the skin a temporary PLUMP look. Polyacrylamide is also acrylic resin that
dissolves in water. It’s a stablizer, binder, and thickener, and
in-and-of itself it’s not considered toxic, but in some circles it’s controversial because
it can secrete Acrylamide, which is a suspect carcinogenic linked to mammary tumors. So you would think with the Neutrogena Hydro
Boost touting Hyaluronic Acid it would be higher on the ingredients list, but Hyaluronic
Acid is actually listed number seventeen out of the nineteen ingredients right before “Blue
#1”– which is a Petroleum-derived color additive, so it gives the blue hue of the product — and
Glycerin, which is higher up on there, that’s actually the main humectant that they’re using
to bring moisture to the skin. So if you haven’t seen my video on “Hyaluronic
Acid: What the Beauty Industry Doesn’t Tell You”, go ahead and click the link above to
find out what that is all ab-, all about. So Sodium Hyaluronate is listed very, very
LOW. It does say that it is non-comedogenic, it’s
a velvety primer, it’s 100% alcohol-free, and dye-free, so that’s not exactly true… Hy-, you know, HYDRO…BOOST! You know… Hyaluronic Acid… They, they make their jars BLUE, they, they
want you to think of Hy-, and it says “100% Hydration”! Well the Hyaluronic Acid is towards the BOTTOM. The other benefit they talked about is OLIVE
benefits. Sorry! Oh yeah… Okay, yeah. Okay. Sorry! And the other one is Sorbitan Olivate, which
is another derivative of-, it’s a fatty acid from the olive oil. And this time they’re using it as a surfactant,
or an emulsifying agent. So those are your two… “benefits”… So really… It’s not really a benefit, it’s actually just
to keep the product intact. The other thing that-, and this is the reason
why I said for those of you to tend to break-, break out easily, or you get bumps, this may
not be the product for you. Because according to the list listed on their
website, the fourth ingredient is Petroleum. So Petroleum is an occlusive agent, I understand
why they’re using it, it’s to keep the moisture that you’re adding in there from escaping. But it’s the FOURTH ingredient. It’s too high up there. And they’re already using Dimethicone. So finally, this is MY TAKE: And I know that
some of you are major groupies of Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel, but — and I’m probably going
to get a couple thumbs down — but I am just simply looking at the ingredients, I am not
brand-specific. If you are looking for a product that has
a HIGH amount of Hyaluronic Acid, then this is probably NOT your best deal. I would probably look at other products, or
even Hyaluronic Acid serum, that has the HIGHEST amount of Hyaluronic Acid. Now we’re going to go into our next product,
it’s Olay. This one is actually kind of similar to the
Neutrogena Hydro Boost, and this one is the Olay… Age Defense… Moisturizer… Gel Moisturizer with Hyaluronic Acid. So we’re going to go to THAT one next! So here are the major differences between
Neutrogena Hydro Boost versus the Olay Age Defense Gel Moisturizer with Hyaluronic Acid:
The Hydro Boost, the Sodium Hyaluronate is second-to-the-LAST ingredient versus Olay,
which is the seventh ingredient. And the second ingredient in the Hydro Boost
is Dimethicone where the second ingredient in Olay is GLYCERIN. And Glycerin is a very strong humectant, very
similar to Hyaluronic Acid. Now the Dimethicone in Olay is the third ingredient,
it’s actually a silicone-derivative, it’s used as a lubricant, and that’s the Cyclopentasiloxane,
and the fifth ingredient is Dimethicone. Now the benefit with the Olay versus the Hydro
Boost is, is that Olay DOES add ANTI-AGING agents in there. So it does have Niacinamide in there, and
it actually boosts other anti-oxidants. So in this case, Olay uses Vitamin E and Niacinamide. So Niacinamide BOOSTS the properties of Vitamin
E. So as far as your money goes for your value, as far as humectants, again, here is another
example where the beauty industry touts using Hyaluronic Acid, charges a little bit more,
but the actual MAIN humectant ingredient is GLYCERIN. So Olay is the better deal versus the Neutrogena
Hydro Boost. Olay Age Defense Gel Moisturizer with Hyaluronic
Acid is your best bet. Okay, so the next ingredient after the Dimethicone
— so I think it’s the sixth ingredient — is Butylene Glycol. Now this is Petroleum-based and it’s used
as a solvent. So, for those of you who are breakout-prone,
or you easily break out, or you tend to have bumpy skin, this may NOT work for you. Olay has a preservative, they use parabens,
they-, and they actually use three of them. They use Methylparaben, Propylparaben, and
Ethylparaben… Which is not that big of a deal, but it is
higher than I would like to see it. I think I saw it, like, towards the bottom
part of the MIDDLE section. It should be at the very, very bottom. So for those of you who are, don’t want to
use anything with paraben, Olay does have the parabens in there. So the CONCLUSION is: Is that the Olay Age
Advanced Gel Moisturizers WITH Hyaluronic Acid, even though that’s not their big thing,
the benefit is, is the Hyaluronic Acid ingredient rates higher in the ingredients list, they
have the added anti-aging — SOME anti-aging — in there. The downside to it is, is it does still use
a lot of silicones to give that smooth, slippery, glide feel, it uses artificial colors, synthetic
ingredients, you know, fragrances, and color. So for those of you who tend to break out,
react, have Eczema, Psoriasis, or some kind of auto-immune disorder, this is probably
NOT the one for you. And this is 1.7 ounces and this one is $21
dollars. $21 dollars. $21 dollars and 49 cents! Okay. The Neutrogena Hydro Boost, even though that
one touts the more Hyaluronic Acid, it’s actually nineteen out of the twenty-one ingredients. So, I don’t know why they’re making such a
big deal with that, and mostly it is a LOT of binders, and to keep it feeling soft, smooth,
silky, and to keep the suspension together. So I’m going to give you just some alternatives
to get the MOST for your money. So once again, I’m more VALUE-driven versus
price-driven. It’s not simply about price, I’m looking to
see what you’re PAYING for. So this one here in the Yu Be Moisturizing
Cream. Okay. This one has Glycerin. Now I personally like the NEW Advanced Hydration
Cream that they have, because this one has Glycerin and Sodium Hyaluronate, and it also
has Tocopheryl Acetate, which is Vitamin E. BUT they do have Methylparaben in here and
the other one is paraben-free. This has a camphor scent, which evaporates
very quickly, so it kind of smells like a, like a menthol smell — kind of almost like
a medicinal smell — the other one is fragrance-free. And I don’t have that one because I just sold
my last one, literally today. So, and that one-, the other one, which is
green, that one is has Chamomile in it — or Camellia Sinensis — which is a natural anti-inflammatory,
calms the skin down. This was, so this one’s great. It’s actually designed by a Japanese pharmacist
and it actually was tested by a mountain climber climbing Mount Everest. And so it was very hydrating to them. So I like the GREEN one and I’ll put the product
links below. So THIS one — I’ll put the links for this
one — this one you can NOT get at stores. It’s Post-Recovery Cream, and I don’t know
if you’re going to be able to see it with the glare. So this one here is actually designed for
people that have post-treatments. Whether it’s an acid peel, you’re using Retin-A,
laser treatments, anything that makes your skin really super dry, it’s peeling, it’s
red, it’s itchy, if you’re breakout-prone, it doesn’t have any of the breakout-prone
ingredients. And this is what the hydration of it is: So,
the second ingredient is Aloe Vera gel, so that’s very soothing, and it’s cooling, and
it has some humectant properties in it. It also has Squalene, which we talked about
before, also very hydrating. Cetyl Esthers, and it has Beta-glucan, which
is a anti-inflammatory — it’s the one that’s derived from the oat, the oatmeal. And the Camellia Sinensis, which is the anti-inflammatory
as well. It has Tocopherol, which is the Vitamin E.
This also has the Cetearyl Alchohol, which we talked about, you know, kind of gets a
little bit waxy when it dries, and it also has Glycerin. So this is not only, it’s very, very hydrating,
but the good thing about this is this does NOT cause breakouts like the other ones do,
because it is for post-recovery treatment cream. And I think this one sells for $36, and this
is for a 2 ounce one. But it’s very concentrated. So the good thing about this one and the Yu
Be is, is that it’s really, really concentrated, you don’t need a whole lot. So for your money, you’re, you’re getting
a lot, it actually addresses the dry, cracked, flaky, irritated, itchy skin. So, there you go. So if you haven’t seen it, go to my “How to
HYDRATE Your Skin” playlist to see all the rest of the videos. Thanks for watching!

  • Hey there everyone! Thank you always for watching my channel! FYI, I mention the Olay as Age Defense and Age Defying interchangeably but it is Age Defying! Sorry for the confusion!! : ) Do you use Hyaluronic Acid as your go to? If not, what do you use to hydrate your skin?

  • Interesting

  • Thank you Christy! Please, how can I get rid of milia ?

  • Worst ever neutrogena hydro boost dnt evr try diz stuff itz vry costly n it will damage ur skin

  • Doesn't the concentration of the hyaluronic acid matter? Besides the amount… like if they put it in 17th place but used very high concentrated doesn't it make it still good?

    Also you obviously can't use Hyaluronic acid as your main ingredient because that would be too concentrated!! I believe 2% hyaluronic acid does a great job. Not only the amount of it matters but also how much of it you need for it to work. Idk if I'm wrong here

  • Thank you for the exceptional detail. I wondered why I would use facial products and my skin get "bumpy". My skin tends to get dry but has occasional break outs. I'll keep looking. Thank you!! 👏🏽

  • You madamme have earned yourself a subscriber

  • Love your videos but way too long, thank you for your videos

  • are u into natural diy foods or things one can make at home to keep mositure in their skin?

  • Thanks, u helped a lot in saving my money!!!!!!! was about to buy the neutrogena gel

  • Hey Christy, on your walk through comparing skin care products, I'd love it if you included "in store" brands. Many of these are actually better formulated and most all of them are cheaper which for those of us on a budget is important. Also maybe compare various baby care products to adult products. Often THEY have a better formulation that is safer for a larger range of skin types and are often cheaper as well. I can't tell you how much I appreciate all the work you are doing in your skin care series. It's the most complete and informative video series I've found on youtube. Hands down your site tops them all and I want you to know that those of us trying to "learn chemistry" in order to find good, science based skin care, really appreciate your efforts. 🙂

  • So happy I found you! You bring back my cherished memories of learning about Cosmetics when I was studying Chemistry.

  • How about oriflame product…

  • Aside from skincare have a segment too about uncoding the ingredients of make up brands 😍

  • I just found your channel and thought, I need to get a facial from her! Lo and behold, you’re in my neighborhood! I will be setting up an appointment for a facial. Thank God for you!

  • I use the Hydro-boost exfoliating cleanser and I very happy with it.
    Also I use Olay active hydration.

  • What a wonderful discovery . Exactly what I’ve been looking for. Thank you so much for your informative videos. You’ll be on the top of my “beauty” videos list from now on

  • Thanks for the true review, always appreciated!

  • How does this compare to the ordinary serums? Have you tried any?

  • Thank you for such an informative video!! I was literally gonna get the neutrogena hydroboost the other day but thought I should do some more research cuz saw that the HA is on the bottom of the ingredient list lol

  • Can you tell us why some cosmetic companies still use lanolin oil in their products?!

  • Dang I just bought the hydro gel today. ☹️ Back to the store it goes.

  • What do you think of rodan and fields products? They have an HA serum…

  • I love the science you bring to the table and everything I am learning sinks in..
    Thank you, I love You, keep it up xoxo

  • Yo re the best!!

  • Thanks, Christy, for useful, specific information rather than promotion! Much appreciated.

    When you mention "bumpy skin", are you referring to sebaceous hyperplasia? I have been mystified bc although sebaceous hyperplasias are not a normal feature of my skin, I develop them from certain products. I do not know which ingredients to focus on to figure out what to avoid. I do avoid chemical sunscreens for this and other reasons. Any clues for me?

    I have combination oily/normal, break-out prone skin (although totally clear if diet and products are proper). Thanks again!

  • Dr Dray’s channel says to put Neutrogena hydro boost on wet skin for full effect.

  • Love your videos! I have never seen someone go so in depth on YouTube. Keep up the great work ❤️

  • Excellent explanation!
    Thank you 🌷

    For me you are the best on YouTube…I'm a new subscriber😄

  • thank you you make me really take the time to research. i bought a hyluronic acid recently and made sure the ingredients all checked out

  • Neutrogena one is crap, it's not moisturizing and it breaks me out in little spots.

  • Hi Christy, This is my first ever comment on youtube although I have been watching videos from different channels from a long time. Your videos are very informative, easy to understand the cosmetics industry and skin care tips. I have a query as I have been struggling with it from ages. Any product containing glycerin makes my skin sweaty. I literally perspirate heavily until I wipe down my face but normally my skin tends stretchy and dry if I don't apply heavy moisturiser. Also, I get tanned or my skin color tarnishes using glycerin based products. Facial oils also aids to perspiration. I am medium fair with thicker normal skin type in 30's. Please recommend something alternative ingredient to look for in products. Hope to receive reply from you. Thanks and take care! Love from India.

  • Hi Christy,
    Love love your videos they are so detailed and informative from an ingredient perspective. As a 45 plus woman with decent skin, my concern is more about hydration and keep the skin look radiant and plump. However, I am always in aww of your beautiful skin. So I was wondering if you could do a video on your morning and/or evening routes or maybe even products/concerns for woman base on the age ranges like 20 vs 30 vs 40 etc… Thanks again for your wonderful videos.

  • Thank you for reviewing the Neutrogena product. I was going to buy it 😮

  • The Hydro Boot here in Ireland has hyaluronic acid higher up in the ingredient list. Perhaps it's due to our higher humidity levels?

    PR-016935 Aqua, Dimethicone, Glycerin, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Dimethiconol, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Laureth-7, C12-14 Pareth-12, Polyacrylamide, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Carbomer, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Sodium Hydroxide, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, Methylparaben, Benzoic Acid, Parfum, CI 42090

  • Hi Christy, This is Elena from Yu-Be! Thank you so much for your awesome shout-out on the Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream and the Yu-Be Advanced Formula Pure Hydration Cream with Chamomile Extract. We really appreciate it! Some of our customers mentioned they heard about Yu-Be from your "Go See Christy" Youtube Channel. I checked out some of your recordings and they are so informative and so many helpful tips. No wonder you are so popular 🙂 I was wondering, when you have a minute, can I ask you to contact me? My e-mail address at [email protected] I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you again!!

  • Thanks for all the information you have a new sub

  • Neutrogena has glycerin as their third ingredient in another video you mentioned glycerin been better than hylauronic acid…doesn’t that make it better than Olay? Sorry I’m confused…

  • Today I bought the neutrogena hydro boost gel, I just tried it and my skin was burning exactly above my lips and bottom of my nose 🙁 I’m not sure why so I started searching if someone has the same reaction and here I am… new subscriber ✨ i think your channel is very informative!!

  • Btw I have sensitive and mixed skin, what moisturizer would you recommend? Please

  • The neutogena one is the one that dried me out made my wrinkles worse gave me a red patchy rash that felt like a mild sunburn. I don’t break out regularly, I have dry skin even though I have large pores.

  • I’m so glad I found this channel

  • Does the yube cream have aloe in it?

  • Hydro boost user here. Won't be buying again. Looking for a sensitive skin , petroleum free moisturizer. Its so confusing. Thank you for breaking these down.

  • Can you do a video talking about squalane.

  • These videos are so I formative .Thank you for being honest.

  • Christy, I bought the Olay Gel Creme Hydratant, age defying with hyaluronic acid. However, it did not seem very moisturizing for my dry skin…. Can you recommend something more moisturizing?

    Actually, maybe I can use this cream as a “night cream” since it doesn’t contain any SPF—what do you think?

  • Thank You!

  • Careful folks. I suspect this may depend where you are in the world? Pretty much everything she describes as being a benefit in its position on the list of ingredients for the Olay product, applies to the Neutrogena product in the UK! In other words, if what she says is true of the Neutrogena product in the US, it is NOT true in the UK. And the stuff she says should be low down, IS low down! The ingredient list for Neutrogena Hydro Boost here in the UK is (and note, this is also different from list given for Ireland elsewhere in the comments): Aqua, Dimethicone, Glycerin, Cetearyl Olivate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Ethylhexylglycerin, Dimethiconol, Synthetic Beeswax, Sorbitan Olivate, Laureth-7, C12-14 Pareth-12, Polyacrylamide, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Carbomer, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Sodium Hydroxide, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, Methylparaben, Benzoic Acid.
    So check the ingredient list! The supposedly-same product appears to be very different depending what country you're in! In the UK, the ingredient list matches what she says is better and what should be low down. Apparently opposite to the US?

  • There’s soooo many moisturisers to choose from. I would love your knowledge. Can you do a video on vitamin A retins? What can it help with please. I was looking for a retin A product. Does retin A , vitamin A actually help fade sunspots, sun damage? I seen today at the chemist for $50 Australian dollars was SKIN DOCTORS potant vit A cream, it has .0.15% retin A. Should I use this? Or put that $50 towards seeing a professional skin doctor? I have noticed the last year, I have a lot of freckles or sun spots, I’m a female Gardner 33 yr old. Can a cream help this ?

  • All I can say is, don't be easily fooled by the Neutrogena "Hydro Boost" claims. I tried it as well and didn't even finish the bottle. It may be sufficient for some, however my opinion is, it's just a money magnet b/c of the name. Thanks for doing the review!

  • My skin is dehydrated I wrinkles ican use neauterogena hydro boost gel cream extra dry skin please reply

  • I used that hydoboost gel cream and had milia and other skin problems after using it

  • Could you please do a video on cerave and aveno. Everyone says its amazing for dry skin! Would love to watch that video x

  • You should also do a video on all products you reccomend thst would be great too!

  • You should also do a video on all products you reccomend thst would be great too!

  • Companies plow all their money into "marketing" to manipulate the public and entrance them with the "looks" of a product. Meanwhile, they use deceptive language and advertising to appear to be more than they really are. Worst of all, they assume people are fools and don't understand the rubbish ingredients they are overcharging us for. Thank goodness for channels like this one.

  • Thank you so much for this video! 👏👏

  • dear Christy,
    can u talk more about silicone. I've heard so many negative side effect of silicone which lead me to having hard time finding the right anti aging product since the most main ingredients of anti aging product is dimethicone/ Cyclopentasiloxane.
    some people said that silicone can cause acne and congestion, interfere with skin renewal, difficult to remove, and even block other ingredients from absorbing. and i also heard that silicone itself has nothing beneficial to our skin except fills in uneven skin texture like fine lines and acne scars so it gives the illusion and will dissapear after washing it.
    what is your opinion about it?

  • Buy hyaluronic acid on Amazon and use for pennies a day. Don't be ripped off by these cosmetic companies.

  • So, the conclusion is that both of the creams are pure waste of money, not to say something elese.

  • Thank you for the information. I tried Neutrogena and I hated it. It dried my skin. I went back to my Oil of Olay. It works.

  • There's two different kinds Neutrogena Hydro Boost make sure you get the one that's fragrance-free! In the blue jar!

  • Dray approves neutrogena hydro boost on wet skin lol its perfectly safe to use
