L'Oreal Hydra Genius

I saw this new L'Oreal Hydra Genius aloe water sitting on the shelves of Boots, and instantly picked it up.  I bought this at least over a month ago and I have been using it every morning religiously. My ever-so-trusty Kiehls moisturiser has been gathering dust, and put back on the skincare shelf.

It took me a while to choose which one to pick up as there are three different versions. I picked up the normal to combination as my skin can be very dry but also I have oily areas. There is also a normal to dry and dry and sensitive versions within the range.

My thoughts on this overall are very positive, I would give it a 8/10. It is a product which for the first time in a long time I thought I love this, and it actually does the job. It instantly feels cool and refreshing on the skin, which is delightful. It makes my skin feel hydrated. The texture is the stand out feature to this, it is so lightweight, a thin fluid consistency which is not sticky or greasy. The scent is nothing too overpowering, but I can definitely smell hints of the aloe coming through.

With this range they have taken inspiration from Asian skincare, which we all know is where our must have skincare products come from, and they are always one step ahead of everyone else. They say it is refreshing as water and as hydrating cream, and I think this is a fab description. I sometimes find that my main problem with moisturisers is that they are either too thick in consistency, or that it does not add the amount of moisture which my skin requires. It contains two main ingredients which is what L'Oreal are saying are the stand out factors to making this such a unique product. The first is pure aloe vera sap which contains essentials minerals, the second is hyaluronic acid which can hold 1,000 times its weight in water.

I use this every morning, on the packaging it says to use every morning and night alone or after your serum, and apply one pump to your face and neck. I really like the pump feature, but I feel like I definitely need at least 3-4 pumps just for my face. The pump does not give you a lot of product, which is great as you don't end up wasting ever, however this is the reason that I need a few pumps to cover my entire face.

Lastly, the packaging is simply gorgeous. I love the blue bottle and the metallic lid, it is a very simple design which is eye-catching. The bottle is glass, so is quite heavy meaning it is not going to be great for travelling. This is currently still on an introductory offer in Boots for £6.66 which is such great value. It is going to be £9.99 full price, which is still a bargain. For the first time in ages, I can say if you are wanting a new refreshing, light, cooling moisturiser for the summer to get your skin hydrated - give this a go.
