Two weeks ago I was blessed enough to join Neutrogena SA in Cape Town for the day! It was a beautiful blue day, and when I say blue I don’t mean a dismal or depressing day but rather the opposite!

It was the launch of 3 new Hydro Boosts Products from Neutrogena SA and yes it was so beautiful and blue!

We landed in Cape Town in the early morning of Friday and made our way off to the Radisson Red Hotel on the V&A Waterfront. The event was held on the roof over looking the beautiful views of Cape Town! What a beautiful hotel to host an event and what a beautiful day it was!

We were served the most divine food and drinks while listened to presentations about the range from numerous people from Neutrogena as well as the face of Neutrogena Nomzamo Mbatha.

Neutrogena SA took the day to launch three amazing new products, these were;

  • Hydro Boost Exfoliator Smoothing Gel
  • Hydro Boost City Shield Hydrating Lotion
  • Hydro Boost Eye Awakening Cream


I was so excited about this launch as the Hydro Boost range is very close to me heart! This range is what began my journey with Neutrogena SA and it has done absolute wonders for my skin!


Neutrogena has really taken into account the lifestyle of a city girl and has pulled out all the stops. The Hydro Boost City Shield Range was designed to revolutionise the way city girls protect their skin! As we all know [those of us who live in the city] know that it is not for the faint hearted. The city life is fast paced and the option to slow down is not always there. Thanks to the Neutrogena Hydro Boost City Shield Range we can now boost our defences to the MAX!

We do not realise the amount of pressure transport, stress, light nights and pollution have on our skin. These contributions, especially pollution are linked to visible signs of aging and wrinkles.

So lets take a look at each product they have launch.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Smoothing Exfoliator Gel

If you do not enjoy rough and heavy textured exfoliators or you have a sensitive skin, then this product is for you! This product is so very gentle on the skin, containing soft and natural microbeads that help remove the impurities while keeping in the moisture. This product is so gentle on the skin it is suitable for everyday use.


I absolutely love using this product because it is so gentle and does not strip my skin of its natural oils and moisture. My skin is very sensitive and most scrubs do not agree with my skin as they are too harsh, but this product is working really well with my skin!

Neutrogena Hydro Boost City Shield Hydrating Lotion SPF 25 

When I saw this product on the table I got so excited! A hydrating lotion containing SPF, what more does a girl need? I absolutely hate sun cream on my face, it either is so oily or it is so drying! This product is so light weight and like all the Hydro Boost products it contains Hyaluronic Acid which helps to replenish skin with a boost to the skins barrier. This lotion is formulated to help protect skin against the effects of pollution plus Helioplex. This formula is so light weight and I apply it every morning under my foundation.


Neutrogena Hydro Boost Eye-Awakening Gel-Cream

I love eye cream and trying out new eye creams. You all know I love Neutrogena Hydro Boost Products so this was an exciting product for me too! This refreshing gel formula is designed for the delicate skin around the eyes, soothing, revitalising and awakening. This formula is designed to fight the effects of tiredness. This product contains the unique Hyaluronic Gel Matrix, which helps with an instant shot of hydration. This product absorbs instantly and lasts 24 hours. This product leaves a tingling feeling when applied. I have not worked out yet if this is the revitalising ingredients working or if it is because the skin around the outer corner of my eyes are dry. I love applying this around my eyes in the morning as it blurs out my imperfections and helps with my concealer!


It was such a fabulous day for such a great launch of these awesome products! I honestly just LOVE the Hydro Boost Range! It has done such wonder for my skin as I always mention!
