Hey lovelies, I hope you’re all warm and well!
Now the weather is turning cooler, my skin is experiencing the transition from dry to extremely dry and sensitive (yay..) and while this has been an issue for me over the last few years, I think I’ve found something that actually works! Let me introduce the Hydra Genius from L’Oreal. I picked this up in boots for £9.99 and gave a whirl for a few weeks. Now I’m sharing my thoughts with you!
I believe that there are 3 different selections from the hydra genius range, one for normal/dry (the one I have) one for combination and one for sensitive. To my knowledge, there isn’t one for oily skin on the market. The moisturiser have a really thin consistency and a small amount goes a long way. I use a pump and a half for my entire face so you’re getting a lot of bang for your buck here.
Refreshed and hydrated
I’ve used this for around 3 weeks now, twice daily and I’ve notice a considerable difference in my skins appearance. My face feels refreshed and hydrated which is exactly what I need! On application, the moisturising water is absorbed almost instantly, like a skin drink if you like. It’s really lightweight on my skin and feels almost cooling on the skin!
Packaging wise I think this product looks a lot more high end, just without the price tag. It comes in a glass bottle with a pump (like the true match foundation pump) and it disperses just the right amount! It feels heavy to hold and makes for a pretty addition to my dresser.
Flake free and super soft
Overall, I really rate this product, it’s helped keep my skin hydrated, flake free and super soft. I’d 100% recommend it to all my dry skin babes, especially throughout the winter months. Unfortunately, L’Oreal are not a cruelty free brand, I hope this changes soon but I thought I’d mention it because some of you like to know.
What are your go to skincare products during winter? Let me know in the comments below.
As always, thank you for being here
