L'Oreal: Hydrafresh Anti-Shine Icy Gel

During the summer season, my skin changes from normal to combination skin. It gets more oily/shiny especially throughout the day because of the heat. I felt that it really dehydrated my skin, though I drink lots of water/liquids. So, I decided to look for moisturizer that will suit my new skin for the heat, something light and non-greasy.

I got the LOREAL HYDRAFRESH Anti-Shine Icy Gel. I'm already using it for more than a month now, everyday! It's a light, gel-like moisturizer that comes in a jar, and also, I personally love its citrus scent.

It has plastic cap on top, serves as the second cover
What it says on the label:

"Pollution, humidity, and stressful lifestyle can provoke an excessive sebum production. At the same time, it can cause perspiration: skin loses water, becomes dehydrated, yet appears shiny.

L'Oreal Paris presents hydrafresh all-day Hydrating & Mattifying Icy Gel. The 1st Icy gel to help neutralize shininess and intensely quench your skin!

For the first time, L'Oreal Skincare Laboratories formulated deep marine source water naturally enriched in purifying minerals to clear your skin from shininess and supply it with hydration all day long.

The Deep Marine Source Water is directly from 22m under the ocean soil, off the French Brittany Coast. Preserved and filtered by this rich granite soil, this source water is naturally enriched in essential minerals. It is 8x more concentrated in the purifying zinc mineral than ordinary sea water."

It helps my skin hydrate and matte especially during this hot weather, I think it's best suitable for asian countries. It has a little bit of refreshing effect after application and it immediately absorbs the gel on my skin. I only use a small amount upon application as it blend easily on the face. And I like it because my face is matte but not dry, and it last throughout the day!

One thing that disappoint me is the packaging, it's bulky, heavy and unhygienic. If you want to bring this product on your travel, I suggest that you transfer amount that you think you'll need to a smaller sanitized plastic pot/tube using a sanitized spoon/spatula.

I only use this during the day because for me, I think it will help my skin stay matte or less shiny. This is also a good makeup base, less meltdown of your makeup when you go out, even if its hot or humid. And then for night time, I use different night cream moisturizer. :) 

This is a really good skin care product especially if you have problems with having an oily /dry skin, because it works both ways. But remember to try it out first because people have different skin reactions in every different products! :)
