Hydra Genius

Hi all,

I wanted to write a little post about the new Hydra Genius cream/gel from L'Oréal. This was a product I just picked up because it was new into boots and I had never seen or heard about it so I said I would give it a go and report back here. I am so glad I did though! Its such a clever product. I picked up the normal to combination one, they have one for normal to dry skin and dry and sensitive skin, but my own skin would be fairly combination. They contain Aloe Water and Hyaluronic Acid which help to  hydrate, refresh and recharge the skin for up to 72 hours. Sounds good! 

I try to use it twice a day but I tend to reach for thicker, heavier creams for night time. I love using this in the mornings though, it is so cooling on the skin, feels amazing and is just like putting water on your face. My skin feels amazing after using this, cooled and super soft. It dries in so quick and its not sticky or greasy.

I love products that contain Aloe Vera, there are so many amazing benefits from Aloe Vera Sap,
  • It is rich in essential minerals and renowned for its moisturising properties.
  • It is known as the 'Plant of Immortality' it is rich in vitamin C & E and Beta Carotene, a red/orange pigment found in plants and fruit that our body converts into vitamin A. All these combined help lighten blemishes and increases the body production of collagen.
  • It speeds up skin cell reproduction by 8 times and penetrates the outer layer of the skin 4 times faster than water, making it perfect to help heal cuts, burns and the fading of scars.
  • It is also great for acne as it reduces pore size, keeping out excess sebum and dirt and contains plant hormones that stimulate the growth of new cells.

Another product that is being used more and more in skin care products lately is Hyaluronic Acid. This is a natural active ingredient already found in the skin.

  • It can hold 1000 times its weight in water.
  • It helps retain collagen, increases moisture and provides elasticity and flexibility.
  • It hydrates dry, aged skin by minimising water loss. Helping to reduce wrinkles.
  • Treats sores, sunburn and wounds by keeping damaged tissue moist.

Hopefully over time this product will work wonders on my skin but for now its still a big hit with me and personally I think this is a perfect product to use during the warmer months when our skin is being dried out and damaged by the sun. It doesn't contain SPF so apply Hydra Genius first and then pop your sun cream on top and you are good to go!!

Buy it here for €12.99

Hope you enjoyed, thanks for reading.
