L’Oreal Paris Hydra Genius Aloe Water Moisturiser Review & Swatch-
My husband absolutely loves cooling, soothing moisturisers to calm his very sensitive skin at bedtime & the Origins gel cream has been his favorite for its texture & more for the fresh orange scent 😛 When it got over, I bought this L’Oreal Aloe Water moisturiser for him from Boots & so far he has been digging it ^_^ This variant is for dry/sensitive skin. They also have one for normal/combination skin.

My take on the L’Oreal Paris Hydra Genius Aloe Water Moisturiser-
I love the sturdy blue bottle packaging of this moisturiser with a flashy metallic cyan pump & a tight cap ^_^ Looks snazzy, very easy to use & best of all, NOT a tub! Yay!
The moisturizer is a pale blue colored gel-cream hybrid which feels so cooling & soothing immediately. It is truly a drink of water for your parched skin *_* The cream sinks into skin within moments & my skin looks & feels fresh & plump with all dryness, irritation melted away. It leaves behind absolutely no greasy/sticky feel <3 My husband loves it especially after shaving which leaves his skin very dry & prone to rashes.
This works fabulously as a day/night cream, after sun exposure to soothe skin & immediately perks up skin on sultry mornings. I love slathering it on after tweezing/waxing or just as a hydration boost whenever my skin feels parched.
It does have silicones but thankfully has never aggravated our skin in any way!
The moisturiser has a subtle, fresh scent which lingers for a few minutes after application.
Pros of the L’Oreal Paris Hydra Genius Aloe Water Moisturiser:
1> Gorgeous cyan blue packaging with metallic blue pump & tight cap.
2> Lightweight gel-cream hybrid texture- sinks into skin within moments.
3> Hydrates skin beautifully without any tacky/heavy feel.
4> Can be used whenever required, for simply any purpose 🙂
5> Immediately soothes & calms skin after sun exposure, threading/waxing!
6> Fresh, subtle fragrance which fades quickly.
7> Comes in different variants for separate skin types.
Cons of the L’Oreal Paris Hydra Genius Aloe Water Moisturiser:
None for us!
Swatch of the L’Oreal Paris Hydra Genius Aloe Water Moisturiser-
My Rating: 4.8/5!
Do I recommend the L’Oreal Paris Hydra Genius Aloe Water Moisturiser?
L’Oreal Paris Hydra Genius Aloe Water Moisturiser is an amazing drugstore dupe for the very famous Clinique moisture surge gel cream or the Origins ginzing gel cream if you love cooling, watery moisturisers for hot summers 🙂 My husband loves this for soothing & calming his very sensitive skin & I regularly steal from him as well. Definitely recommended!
