L'Oreal Paris Hydra-Total 5 Gel-Cream Swatch


Oily and combination skin also need moisturizing and that must be part of every one's skin care regime. Last year I tried L'Oreal Paris Aqua-Gel, will review that soon (pretty lazy), along with HydraFresh foaming gel of the same brand. Last month when I purchased the newly launched Hydra Total range face wash I decided to give this Gel-Cream a try, from the same range for Normal and Combination Skin. Glad! I am not wrong in this selection. This one IS Cream but a Gel based so gives a proper required hydration to my dried-dehydrated cheeks esp, even in this Monsoon heat. I apply it on my oily T-zone also but only if I am to stay at home. If I have to go out esp in Sun/day time, I skip its application on my T-zone or it really gets more sweaty and shiny. It gives a good moisture to my skin under the makeup but as it is really hot and sweaty Summers here in Pakistan, I skip its application on my oily T-zone under makeup, so the makeup does not start flowing, lolz...actually I sweat allot, and I wonder I still have dry patches... skin really behave weird once you are in motherhood. This Gel-Cream is a life saver for my makeup as it really hydrates the dry patches and I can achieve that flawless face easily. I am loving it, its not grease-y and stick-y at all. Its really light weight and easily absorbed. My skin feel shiny after few hours may be that's the "illuminating" part plus my sweat. The Total 5 promises (for hydration, toning, refreshing, illuminating and nourishing) are kept by this but keep a check on it if you have extra oily T-zone like mine. Its my Summer Love, for sure.
For best results use with L'Oreal Hydra Total 5 Facial Wash for Normal Combination Skin.

  • You are looking for a GEL based CREAM for face
