Lancome Hydra Zen Anti-Stress Day Cream Review & Swatch-
Hello lovely ladies 🙂
I always prefer a day cream with some sun protection which is the reason I did not repurchase my much beloved Clarins multi jouer day cream since it contains no SPF & was considering repurchasing the Estee Lauder one when I hunted around blogs & came upon this beauty. Read on to know about my experience with the Lancome Hydra Zen day cream 🙂

My take on the Lancome Hydra Zen Anti-Stress Day Cream-
The packaging is minimal, luxurious & lovely 🙂 It comes in a heavy pink glass tub with a silver screw-on lid which is not travel friendly by any means but I do love looking at it sitting pretty on my dresser.
The cream is a pale pink in color with quite a rich texture which thankfully is not greasy or sticky at all & sinks into skin completely on massaging it in. It hydrates my skin beautifully & leaves it soft, supple & radiant. The SPF leaves no white cast & though I would have preferred a higher SPF than 15, it is fine as a daily day cream since I am indoors anyway.
Ever since I have started using this day cream, my skin tone has certainly appeared more radiant and my acne spots melted away quicker than usual so I am totally in love with it. 😀 It does soothe my irritated & sensitive skin & does not aggravate it in any way.
The cream has a mild & lovely floral fragrance which I like a lot & it does linger on skin for some time.
Pros of the Lancome Hydra Zen Anti-Stress Day Cream:
1> Luxurious tub packaging.
2> Instantly gets absorbed by the skin and gives a supple radiant finish 🙂
3> No greasy/thick feel on top of skin!
4> Is effective in making my skin radiant and helping to fade acne marks quicker 🙂
5> Did not aggravate my sensitive skin at all & soothed it instead.
6> Mild & lovely floral fragrance.
Cons of the Lancome Hydra Zen Anti-Stress Day Cream:
I always dislike tub packaging in creams. Also, it is not at all travel friendly.
SPF 15 is not enough if you are going out.
Swatch of the Lancome Hydra Zen Anti-Stress Day Cream-
My Rating: 4.8/5!
Do I recommend the Lancome Hydra Zen Anti-Stress Day Cream?
Lancome Hydra Zen Anti-Stress Day Cream is a lovely & luxurious day cream which hydrates & soothes my skin in such a beautiful way without any sticky/oily feel 🙂 I love how my skin looks & feels ever since I have been using it & will probably repurchase.
