Hydrating your skin is as important as hydrating your body. Your body needs hydration to look and feel good.
Hydrator and moisturizer are marketing terms. Moisturizers are oil-based ingredients and work by creating a seal on the surface of the skin to prevent water evaporating. Hydrators are ingredients called humectants that absorb water from the atmosphere or your skin and hold it in place on your skin.
Moisturizer is a universal term for moisturizer types: emollients (fats and oils), squalene (oil), humectants (hydrator, such as glycerine or hyaluronic acid), occlusive.
There are a ton of different products on the market, but most skin lotions and products contain both occlusive and emollient ingredients and humectant ingredients. It means they moisturize and hydrate at the same time.
The form a product takes does not affect the performance - only the experience of applying the ingredients.
