Q: What's the difference between the cream and gel formulas?

submitted by ChristinaS - 4 months ago
  • A: The Neutrogena hydro boost water gel has Hyaluronic Acid that absorbs quickly like a gel but has the lasting, intense moisturizing power of a cream. For creams like the rapid wrinkle repair cream is can add plumping moisture to help hydrate and rejuvenate the look of skin.

Bought this trial size because I was looking for face lotion alternatives - I used the renewed hope in a jar before it was discontinued. Very happy with it!! It’s so hydrating and feels good on.

I had found the gel-cream extra dry fragrance free to be a little too lightweight, and this new water cream formulation is just right! Locks in moisture without feeling too heavy, I love it!

New Formula is Horrible

I've used this lotion for many years because it was the best and never felt like you had an oily lotion on your face. They recently changed the formula and now my face has tiny bumps all over it, is blotchy red, and burning. It's horrible! Do not buy!

i love everything about this moisturizer! truthfully, i don't think i'll ever turn to another moisturizer again, this is THE one for me. i have very sensitive skin and this never broke me out. i found this to be a lot better than the gel version as it has no fragrance and has an overall cleaner, lighter feel to it. the texture is smooth, almost like butter but with no grease, and it makes a huge difference in how my face looks during the wintertime as someone who gets really dry skin that sometimes flakes in the cold. this is one of those products that make my skincare routine something to look forward to as i absolutely love how this makes my skin feel!!

Burns/stings my face plus it's really overpriced for what you get. I use Jin Jung Sung Hybrid Face & Eye Moisturizer now. I get an extra ounce of moisturizer plus an easier to use flip open top AND a WAY more comprehensive list of ingredients for LESS money.

I was having really bad dryness from the winter weather and I started to use this cream. Almost immediately I felt a difference- the areas of my face didn’t feel as dry and itchy.

The switch in products do not seem to cover extra dry skin. Loved the now discontinued product. This is only a light moisurizer which if you need that is fine. Time to switch brands

WHY WOULD YOU CHANGE THE FORMULA???

1 out of 5 stars
Shambles1923 - 1 month ago
originally posted on neutrogena.com
For the life of me, I cannot understand WHY you would change the formula of something that was pretty close to perfect! Why not just add this new product to the HB line instead of marketing it as an existing one? And why is there alcohol in a moisturizer? I understand it's used as a stabilizer but the old formula didn't have alcohol in it and worked amazingly. Unbelievable. HATE.

The last two iterations of HYDRO BOOST were great, the new Water Gel is not. The previous versions moisturized the face, then absorbed immediately, letting your face breath. This is more of coating that remains on your face with a "mask" feeling... So sorry to lose my favorite face product. I was a big user of the old product; but sadly, no more.

Why in the world would you change the formula everyone loved?!?!?!?! Extremely, extremely disappointed with the change. Like many others, this USED to be my favorite fragrance free moisturizer, but not anymore! The new formula's texture is horrible. My face just feels sticky/tacky, it never sinks in properly, even at the end of the day. Like I said, HUGE disappointment. Why, just WHY would you change this fan favorite? I want to know why! I will NOT be buying again, ever. Time to find a new moisturizer.

This is a nice product, but it’s very thick, and you really need to dig into the jar to get it out. This tends to result in getting out too much of it, which is potentially wasteful. I preferred the product it replaced, the Hydro Boost Water Gel. Not sure if I will purchase this again.

Ms Lady RJ - 2 months ago
I agree with previous comments. This new version DOES NOT give my skin that dewy feel that made me a Hydro Boost fan. It is too thick. I sooo VERY gratful that the old version is still on shelfs. If they stop making the old version I do not know what I will do. I use this new version as a hand creme at night.

I have been using the Hydro boost extra dry gel cream for as long as I can remember. It was the best facial moisturizer I had found. Since neutrogena discontinued that product, I tried this because I thought it would be very similar, it not the same. I was wrong. This new product is terrible. It has a thicker consistency and a terrible smell. It doesn't leave my skin feeling soft, cool, and refreshed. It leaves your skin feeling sticky and red and hot. I'm devastated. Neutrogena has lost a life long customer over this change.

It's been so devastating that after being a faithful buyer for years you just change the formula to something that burns and breaks me out. The old formula was literally the only moisturizer that worked for my skin and now I am forced to look elsewhere. Why!? The old formula was wildly popular so it's not like you had to make changes because it wasn't selling. Very infuriating and sad,just awful.

I've been using this for years and it has kept my skin from drying out. This NEW formula is NOTHING like the old formula. It smells, it's greasy and my face is not moisturized like it used to be with the old formula. Why would you change something that has worked wonderfully for so many people over the years! WHY?!

The cannot keep claims saying it's an award winning formula when they changed the formula! I had been using this product maybe for 10 years, ever since it first came out. The new formula is greasy and does not feel as nice on the skin. SO BUMMED -- this seems to be a reoccurring thing company's and cheapening their products and replacing with garbage.
