Aloe Water Is Back On Trend (again!)
Is Aloe Water the key ingredient to skin hydration? Known as the ‘natural healer’, Aloe Vera is widely used all over the world treating various skin and health conditions, but is this aloe water inspired product worth purchasing?
Continue reading my latest review on the new L’Oréal Hydra Genius Aloe Water.
L’Oréal are definitely upping their game with recent skincare launches. It’s nice to see that L’Oréal are focusing on innovate skincare targeted for everyone rather just throwing about this and that anti-ageing cream aimed at the mature generation of people.
Hydrated skin is happy skin, that’s a fact. Healthy, hydrated skin provides an inner glow, a clear complexion that adds life and vitality.
L’Oréal Hydra Genius Aloe Water was inspired by Asian skincare. Multi-step routine or not, the market for skincare is slowly becoming more creative and imaginative thanks to Korea.
Hydration appears to be a hot topic in the skincare arena at the moment. With the likes of Clarins, Perricone MD and Peter Thomas Roth all launching (and reformulating) a hydration-based range for quench-thirsty skin sufferers.
Lock-In Moisture with Aloe Water
Fresh, cooling and light. This hydrating gel/cream replenishes loss moisture and nutrition thanks to the combination of pure aloe water and hyaluronic acid.
Quickly-absorbing yet moisturising, this ultra-light liquid leaves the skin feeling balanced and comforted.
Promising a 72 hour continuous hydration thanks to the correct ratio of oils and water encapsulated inside. Although this isn’t my favourite go-to hydrator, an extra layer of product won’t hurt.
You will notice a slight subtle fragrance from this product that might not interact well with ‘real’ sensitive skin people but shouldn’t cause any major issues.
With dimethicone as the fourth ingredient, you can be certain your skin will have a silky smooth feel to touch.
Japanese timber bamboo extract protects skin from free radical damage because of its natural sun-screening powers (this doesn’t mean you can skip using your favourite SPF moisturiser!).
I wouldn’t call this the answer to dehydrated skin, especially for those with sensitive skin too, I would of knocked the fragrance on the head and removed it.
Sensitive or not, the Hydra Genius Aloe Water offers a nice amount of hydration and comfort but don’t expect it to quench your skins thirst completely.
