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.

Because it’s GOOD!

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. :D

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. :D

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! :D

p/s: as long as it’s not too expensive :P

    Hi 心。葵, I love my HG moisturiser, Clinique Moisture Surge. I have combination-oily skin as well and it works for me! The texture of Clinique’s sounds really similar to your L’Oreal gel review above – it’s a cream-gel texture.

    What I really like about it is it absorbs very well into the skin and doesn’t leave any greasy feeling behind. It sinks in right away. Some people might feel that it’s a bit sticky, but the sticky feeling goes away in a few minutes.

    I notice that u usually review/use drugstore brands but I recommend this cos it moisturises very well esp those dry zones. Am aware that Clinique is priced a little higher in M’sia. But if u’ve the chance will recommend u to try it out! :)

    Happy Weekend! :)

    Morning Gracie,

    Yeah, i just started working, so I tend to stick to drugstore stuff for the moment. I can’t splurge too often. i’d be broke cuz there’s so many items on my wish list!

    and yes i’ve heard of Clinique’s moisture surge, and i’m tempted to try! it’s bout rm160++ i think… not too sure…

    and thanks for the recommendation! maybe during CNY i can splurge, ang pau! :D

    cheers,

    hi Shin,

    thanks for the recommendation! I think I have a sample of it, so will just try it out! I am a bit sceptical on TBS’s skincare as alot of ppl say it’s useless… but then again, i’ll just have to try! :D

    cheers,

    Thank you for letting us know about this product, I guess i will give it a try when my Clinique moisture surge is running low. It’s also light weight gel texture.

    Hi Plue,

    Can u describe how stingy it is? i just got myself a jar and haven’t opened it yet. Stingy sounds scary -_-” does it makes your skin break out?

    Hello, it’s been a long while since I have used it, so it may not be very accurate, but I remembered it to be a little hot and there’s little prickly needles pricking, but that’s about it. The feeling goes away very quickly, and when skin is adequately hydrated, the stinging won’t be there :)

    It doesn’t make my skin break out, as it’s quite light for me :) Do a patch test first before you use it all over your face k? Just in case. ;)
