As you guys know, Malaysia's weather is always in the warm side, sometimes it would be great to have a heavy rain to cool down the weather a bit. Hence I'm the girl who always in the look out for products that gives my skin full on no joke hydration. And a new hydration gel which not only gives a 400% hydration but also sun protection, has just landed in town a month ago (here) and I have been loving it ever since. The new kid in town is the,
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel SPF 30 PA++
with 400% Hydration & Sun Protection
I have tried a couple of moisturizer with some claim to give an intensive moisturizing properties, twice the moisture retention capacity and etc, but I have to say I was not such a great fan of it. They always take a pretty long time to settle and fully absorbed by my skin due to the rich skincare properties. But the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel is like a wonder-product for me that moisturizes well and giving my skin a smooth velvety finish in seconds. It nourishes well on my normal/combination skin and not to mention it has a tutti fruity scent to it too.

I tend to apply this right after my toning routine day and night, although it comes with a sun protection of SPF 30 PA++ I would still top it up with a sunscreen because to be honest the SPF 30 is insufficient for weather and glaring sunlight in Malaysia. However for the night application, I get to just skip my suncreen routine and would just apply the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel alone since there ain't any sunlight in the night. This gel kept me hydrated for 6 to 8 hours before my face started to blot oil.
This Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel is available at Watson outlet for RM 66.50 (40ml) / $20.33 (40ml). Not the cheapest moisturizer out there but for some reason I love this a lot due to the smooth velvety finish of it. As a night moisturizer, it's certainly a thumbs up with it's 400% hydration and sun protection but for a day, the SPF 30 sun protection is simply insufficient for me.
Have you guys given this new kid a go ?
