The other day, I was getting a facial (lucky me, I know), and before my treatment, my aesthetician asked me khổng lồ describe my skin type. "It's combination skin, but also veers on the sensitive side," I told her, describing how sliông xã my T-zone gets by lunchtime. But after some poking and prodding, my faciacác mục explained that my skin wasn't actually what I thought it was. "It's a bit dry, & very dehydrated," she said, tugging at the apparent parched skin on my forehead. Great.

Turns out, she's not wrong. "Dry skin is characterized by fewer oil-producing glands on the face và body toàn thân," says Ross C. Radusky, a board-certified dermatologist at SoHo Skin & laze Dermatology. "Dehydrated skin, on the other hvà, is a lachồng of water, not oil. So you can actually have an oily complexion but still have dehydrated skin."

With this information, I decided to seek out a new moisturizer to help curb the dryness và bring some much-needed moisture bachồng inkhổng lồ my skin. Enter: Neutrogena's Hydro Boost Gel-Cream Extra-Dry Skin, one of this year's Reader's Choice Award winners. Typically, I'd never reach for a hàng hóa tailored to "extra dry skin" (mostly because I never considered my skin to be "extra dry"), but here we are.

Neutrogena's Hydro Boost Gel-Cream isn't actually a cream, but instead a lightweight, bouncy gel-cream hybrid that absorbs inlớn your skin almost instantly on liên hệ. "They're the best of both worlds, with the weight that comes with being a gel and the cushion of a moisturizer," cosmetic chemist Ginger King previously told "They are suitable for most skin types."

Formula-wise, the gel-cream is made with hyaluronic acid to lớn hydrate and glycerin khổng lồ loông xã in the moisture. It's a bit cooling on contact, too, which is great now that temps have begun lớn sky-rocket here in New York City. (Side note: Have you ever experienced a summer in Thủ đô New York City? It's brutal, which is why I need all the help I can get.) Beyond that, the moisturizer has virtually no scent, so it's completely safe for my sometimes-sensitive skin.

Though it's only been a few weeks of slathering on Neutrogena's Hydro Boost Gel-Cream Extra-Dry Skin post-cleanse & pre-sunscreen, I will say that I've been thoroughly enjoying it. It just feels so good on my skin. And I guess my skin enjoys it, too, because I haven't seen a dry patch in days. My aesthetician would be pleased.
