Loreal Hydrafresh Aqua Essence Gel
I dislike Loreal skincare line. It doesn’t work for my skin. >_<
But this is my 2nd jar.
There’s only one reason I re-purchase this when I said I dislike Loreal skincare and there are so many other moisturizers in the market.
I like it because it’s lightweight, doesn’t leave a greasy, sticky feeling on my skin after application. Even if I put a thick layer, it sinks into my skin almost immediately once I gently massage it in.
I have combination-oily skin, which I think because on the inside I am dehydrated. When I use this, my skin feels very supple and smooth to the touch, sebum secretion is cut down to almost half, and with Biore sunblock, face can go almost matte for half a day. But of course, as the day comes to an end, my face still goes oily, but I don’t mind. I’m immune to it. I’m lucky enough to have my face being in matte condition for half a day.
This moisturizer has a light refreshing scent, just like it’s green colour gel. It’s quite watery, which makes face massaging feels very good, because it’s easy to spread, it doesn’t tug at your skin. But do be careful, because it is easily absorb by the skin, you might need to use a slightly heavier amount of it for your face. I don’t quite mind it as it’s quite cheap and goes for sale quite often. And the faster I finish this, the faster I get to use new stuff!
Just my 2 cents to super-dry skin people: This may not be sufficient for you guys. I think it works best for people with normal to combination oily skin. I hope those with dry skin aren’t disappointed, but then you can always try, maybe I am wrong!
Do let me know what other nice lightweight hydrating moisturizers are out there! I could always use another brand!
p/s: as long as it’s not too expensive
