Now that more and more people are becoming eco-conscious, brands are also following suit by introducing environment-friendly and cost-effective solutions to both skincare needs and sustainability concerns. For dermatologist-recommended brand Neutrogena, their recent move involves the introduction of refill pods for their Hydro Boost Water Gel, a cult classic product known for helping make a healthy glass skin look possible.
“We are thrilled to introduce the new refill pods for Hydro Boost Water Gel. We understand the importance of sustainability, and we believe that our customers should have access to products that are both effective and environment friendly. With these refill pods, we are proud to offer a solution that benefits both the skin and the planet. It’s one among many of Neutrogena’s ongoing efforts to reduce plastic waste,” said Macy Agoncillo, Neutrogena Brand Manager.
Formulated by experts, the Hydro Boost Water Gel provides skin with 5x more hydration*. Packed with skin-friendly ingredients such as amino acids, electrolytes, and 20% more hyaluronic acid compared to the previous formula, it helps strengthen the skin barrier. This lightweight and quick-absorbing gel rejuvenates the skin, leaving it soft, smooth, and supple. Suitable for all skin types, including oily and acne-prone skin, it effectively addresses issues like dullness, dryness, and fine lines. In just four weeks, you can achieve hydrated, plump, and supple skin.

HOW TO USE THE REFILL PODS
Upon opening the packaging, you’d be able to distinguish where the inner pod and the see-through jar meets. There are only three steps to remember: Twist, Lift, and Refill. Simply press down the inner pod and twist it towards you. The pod should feel loose so you’ll be able to lift and replace it with a new one. By choosing this option, you can reduce plastic waste by up to 89%** compared to buying a new jar of Hydro Boost Water Gel. It’s the ideal choice for eco-conscious beauty enthusiasts!
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
A full jar of Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel costs around Php 1,012 via Watsons website but by purchasing refillable pods every time the product runs out, you can save over Php 200. Each refillable pod costs around Php 735. It’s also available in Watsons physical stores nationwide.
By choosing Neutrogena, you not only achieve healthy and glass-like skin but also make a positive impact on the environment.
