Neutrogena Primer Review

Hello to all my beauty lovers out there! In this post I wanted to bring you a review on a beauty product that I have recently discovered and am absolutely loving! It is the Neutrogena Glow Primer + Serum. As with all of my reviews thus far, this is not a sponsored post.

Neutrogena Glow Primer

Truthfully I have no idea how long this has been on the market but it’s new too me. I have always had normal skin that tended to lean a bit towards dry but in the last three months or so it seemed my skin was changing yet again. I’m almost fifty and since my mid forties it seems my skin was changing every year. Over the course of the last four months I noticed my makeup did not look very good. I looked very ‘cakey’. I tried all different kinds of moisturizers, foundations, tinted moisturizers but nothing seemed to make my makeup look any better. Then I saw this Primer + Serum in the store and decided to try it. I didn’t have high hopes because most products in the beauty industry don’t always do what they promise but I figured, it has Hyaluronic Acid in it so it may be okay.

I was floored the first day I used it. I decided that instead of wearing my CeraVe, which I still love or any other kind of moisturizer under my makeup I would use only the Neutrogena Glow Primer + Serum. Good decision! My makeup looks so much better. I don’t look ‘cakey’ anymore or like I put my makeup on with a grout trowel.

These are some of the claims that Neutrogena makes for this product.

  • Neutrogena Hydro Boost Glow Booster moisturizing serum-to-primer hybrid to leave skin hydrated
  • Infused with purified Hyaluronic Acid to provide instant hydration
  • This priming serum completes the look of your skin with a glowing finish
  • Non-greasy formula is designed to make skin appear more plump and energized

My personal opinion on the above claims is, I can agree with everything except the last one. I don’t see my skin appearing to be any more plump but that’s not something that is really important to me. What I do see, is smoother, more hydrated skin. What I feel is again, smoother, more hydrated skin and my makeup looks so much nicer than it has.


I hope you enjoyed this review and it was helpful to you. I have included links in my post so if you’re interested in getting this you don’t have to go hunting around on Google to find it.
