L'Oréal Paris Hydra Genius

Recently I've been all about L'Oréal skincare, it's affordable and my skin just reacts nicely to it which is brilliant. So when L'Oréal released their new moisturiser, I kinda had to have it...

The L'Oréal Paris Hydra Genius (£9.99/70ml) is a moisturiser which is lightweight on the skin. Infused with Hyaluronic acid, this product aims to hydrate your skin deeply, without leaving a greasy residue on the surface. This product also contains Aloe water which is one of my favourite skincare ingredients, Aloe Vera itself is known for it's healing properties, and also for being great for sensitive skin. These two ingredients are things which I feel like every skin type will benefit from. 
What I think is extra special about this product is that L'Oréal have focused on making this product for different skin types, so I purchased the 'combination/oily' Hydra Genius as my skin does tend to be a mix of dry and oily. There is also a 'dry' and 'sensitive' version available.

Although this is a stand alone moisturiser, I find that I tend to use this as a serum, as this sinks in super fast. The reason I put on moisturiser on top of it is so my skin has a moisturised feel to it, so that there is some residual product sitting on top of my skin, so I apply a bit of my Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream SPF 30 (£24.50/50ml) over the top, so that my face is primed and ready for makeup. This is just how I like to apply this product, it's always good to play around with products to see how it best suits you!
 I also tend to use around 1 pump of this too, which covers my while face and neck nicely. I love the packaging of the product, it looks and feels so sleek. Also the fact it's a pump makes me love this product more, as it's more hygienic and easy to use. 
I'm actually in love with this product and use it twice daily. I think it's lovely to have a product on the high street which rivals high-end skincare. This is a product which I think most people will love, just because it caters for all and just does a great job. 
I would love to know if you have tried this, and whether you would be interested in purchasing a product like this, or if you have one like this! Also be sure to follow me on Bloglovin to stay up to date with my posts!



  1. I just recently picked this up because of bloggers hyping it up, and I actually really like it! I have combo skin and it works great for me, just the right amount of hydration for under heavy make up.
