Hey everyone, its been a while! So today’s post is all about this new product from L’Oreal, Its called Hydra genius aloe water and is a skin care product that you can use instead of your regular day/night cream.
Hydra genius is described as a liquid care product that locks in moisture for 72 hours for fresh and glowing skin!
I picked this up in boots a couple of weeks ago as it was (and still is) on offer at €8.66 for 70ml of product.
The Hydra Genius liquid care comes in three different variations – normal/dry skin, combination skin and one for sensitive skin. I would class my own skin as fairly normal/a little dry so I went for the normal/dry skin variation .
As you can see the two main ingredients are pure aloe vera sap and hyaluronic acid. The directions suggest you use one pump of product morning and evening either alone or after you have applied your serum.
My experience of the product:
To be honest at first it seemed like a great product, quite a thin runny consistency and it really does dry into your skin so quickly. It actually reminded more of a serum than a moisturiser!
I don’t know if it was the choice of formula I chose but this really just didn’t hit the mark for me. Now skincare is obviously a very subjective matter as what works for me may not work for you and vice versa but I just didn’t find any improvement in the texture of my skin after using it exclusively for the last couple of weeks. As I said it applies well and sinks straight into your skin so handy if you’re rushing in the morning.
I just found my skin didn’t feel as soft after using it in place of my usual day/night cream nor did I notice any improvement in how my skin looked, there was no noticeable brightness.
Overall as a product it is a handy alternative to regular moisturiser, perfect if you are looking for something quick and easy. But for me it just didn’t do as it said on the box so I would not be quick to recommend you rush out and purchase. But again as I said skincare is such a personal thing so it may just work for you – just sadly not for me.
