L'Oreal Hydra Genius Skincare Collection Review*

L'Oreal Paris Skin Expert Paris introduces Hydra Genius, a brand new line that features three new liquid-based moisturizers made for oily, normal-to-dry and extra-dry skin. It is inspired by Korean skincare and is formulated with Aloe Water and Hyaluronic Acid - both ingredients that provides you with continuous hydration, it lasts all day and feels lightweight on your skin and absorbs quickly.

First, we have the Micellar Complete Cleansing Water, formulated especially for waterproof make-up. This blue version is for all skin types, however they also have one for Normal-to-Dry skin and Normal-to-Oily skin. It is priced at $9.99 USD.

I really enjoyed this product and it did a really good job removing all the make-up from my face with a cotton pad. This also didn't leave behind any residue or film on my face, which is greatly appreciated. With this, honestly there have been days where I am just so completely exhausted I have just used this and wiped my make-up off and went to bed and it didn't feel grimy. 

Directly below, I have swatches of both the Mattifying Gel liquid for Oily Skin (top) and the Glowing Rich Liquid for Normal/Dry Skin. They both have a fragrance to them, but it does not smell like flowers, perfume-like or overwhelming - it has a very light and refreshing scent and helps make the skin look matte. The Mattifying Gel Liquid for Oily Skin goes on as a light gel and absorbs really quickly. My make-up went on effortlessly and I really enjoyed using this during the daytime. I also used the Normal/Dry Skin formula on my neck, chest and face as I just came back from the Dominican and I am peeling pretty badly. This worked to combat the peeling on my forehead and using this at night allowed for it to have enough time to penetrate my skin and for me to wake up having a more plumpness to the skin. 


Lastly, in the range they have the Comforting Balm Liquid for Extra Dry Skin. As the name suggests, this is a richer and thicker formula and is perfect for those who need that extra TLC. This was a bit too heavy for me, so I will be passing it onto a friend, but honestly when I applied this to my hand, it didn't feel heavy, it was light weight and it worked well to saturate my hand. I think that for you dry skin girls, especially since it's so cold right now it'll be great for you! 

These products have a suggested retail price of $23.99 and are currently available at mass market retailers, drugstores across Canada and on amazon.ca

Which product are you looking to try in the line? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time, XO - M.
