L'oreal Paris Hydra Genius Aloe Water Review

I'm quite tight when it comes to spending money so I don't tend to buy things on a whim. I want to make sure what I buy and spend my hard earned cash on will be worth it so I always read reviews beforehand, even if it's something for just a fiver. But when I heard someone talk about this product I didn't bother looking up reviews to see if it was good or not, I just bought it - which is very unlike me!

The L'oreal Paris Hydra Genius Aloe Water sounded like heaven to me. It is designed to refresh and remoisturise the skin whilst being as lightweight as water in texture. You are supposed to use it instead of your daily moisturiser and as soon as I heard about it I was sold. It might not sound too incredible but trust me, it is!

About the L'oreal Paris Hydra Genius Aloe Water:
"The Liquid Care; Fresh as water hydrating as a cream. Locks in Moisture for 72hrs. Enriched with Aloe Water & Hyaluronic Acid. Instantly Refreshes. For Normal to Dry Skin. Inspired by Asian skincare, L'OrĂ©al Paris Laboratories introduces the liquid care. It delivers pure moisture that penetrates quickly, deeply and continuously - without overloading the skin."

Available in three different versions depending on your skintype, the L'oreal Paris Hydra Genius Aloe Water is everything you will need as a base in just one bottle. It preps the skin before the application of make-up, it hydrates and moisturises and it leaves a lightweight, refreshing feeling on the skin. It is so hydrating that L'oreal recommend you don't use a moisturiser with it which is pretty bold, but you really don't need to use both products at the same time. For its hydration alone I would already recommend it.

I apply this product after I have cleansed my face in the morning, just before I apply my make-up. I apply one pump to a clean face and rub it in before immediately applying my make-up. It absorbs into the skin within moments and leaves it feeling incredibly soft and hydrated, giving the skin a really plump base to apply make-up to. I find that my foundation applies smoother and looks better if I apply it on top of the Hydra Genius Aloe Water as it makes the skin feel so hydrated and so smooth, foundation just blends into it perfectly. 

I really love this product and I can definitely see myself re-purchasing after I have finished this bottle. You only need one pump for the entire face and the product absorbs into the skin immediately. It is so hydrating, it keeps the skin hydrated and moisturised all day long and as it is so lightweight, it doesn't affect make-up application at all. It actually makes the application of foundation even easier as it leaves your skin feeling so plump and smooth. I definitely recommend it and I think my regular moisturising days may be over!
