For many people, dry skin arrives every winter like clockwork. It overpowers the body leaving patches of flaked or cracked skin that look as painful as they feel. And while dermatologists have their own winter staples to boost skin's hydration levels, Amazon shoppers are turning to the Neutrogena's Hydro Boost Winter Gift Set ($14; amazon.com).
The $14 kit packs everything you need to revive dry skin including Kristen Bell's favorite face moisturizer, hand cream, and gentle cleansing gel—all from Neutrogena's Hydro Boost line. The best-selling collection of products is formulated with hyaluronic acid as the primary active ingredient. The natural humectant draws water into the skin to ensure it's adequately moisturized and combats the aging process by delaying skin thinning or itching, according to a previous Health interview with San Francisco-based dermatologist William Kwan MD.
As a result, it's the perfect addition to every winter skincare routine. Not only does hyaluronic acid work well for oily skin, but its anti-aging benefits also make the ingredient ideal for skin of all ages. Luckily, this budget-friendly set is packed with the perfect delivery method for every body part.
The trial-size Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream is optimal for the face. Its unique formula is water-based with a gel texture that quickly absorbs into the skin. Like the rest of the lineup, it's oil-free, dye-free, and fragrance-free for safe use on even the most sensitive skin. Likened to "magic" by one reviewer, the cream is already beloved by more than 13,000 shoppers that gave it a perfect review.
The mini Hydro Boost Hand Cream is perfect for keeping your hands hydrated on the go. The water-based formula is lighter than most hand creams but still slightly thicker in texture than the face cream. The extra density helps the formula trap moisturize for up to 24 hours. Of course, it still absorbs almost instantly, so you won't have to waste time waiting for it to dry before your next activity.
The Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel rounds out the lineup with a hypoallergenic formula that's safe for the rest of the body. It's powerful enough to strip away makeup but still gentle enough to keep the skin's natural moisture barrier intact. Despite transforming into a milky lather, the gel cleanser doesn't contain any harsh ingredients and is dermatologist-recommended. Plus, it has more than 7,200 perfect ratings.
All things considered, there's never been an easier—or cheaper—way to overhaul for skincare routine with hydration.
