I struggle with oily skin every day, and I bought this with the hopes of help to controll the access oil I get during the day. This moisturizer has a fresh scent, glides on perfectly,but does nothing to control oil. When I hav applied it my skin feels nice and non-sticky, but during the day I get shiny as heck! I had high hopes for this product since I like Clarins generally, but unfortunately the purpose for this creme is lost. If you don't have oily skin I guess you will be more pleased than I am. I will most likely not repurchase this.
This is always be the best moisture product in the summer season. I can't remember how many bottles I've been used but its always my best. I have a combination skin, in the summer season my t zone could be very oily. By applying this moisture, I feel my face much cooler and less greasy. But in the winter season, it doesn't have much moisture effect. So I would recommend that use only during the summer if u have a combination skin ;)
I have used the hydra-matte lotion for about 2.5 years now! I LOVE it! It has a great light-weight feel and you only need a tiny bit for your entire face (I use 2 pumps). I never feel like I'm wearing a moisturiser as it doesn't feel greasy or thick like other moisturisers. I wear it day and night and I have never have problems with dry skin -my skin is combination. The packaging is awkward and you have to be sure not to drop it as the bottle seems fragile (I havn't ever had a breakage though). I would recommend this product to anyone who is struggling to find a good moisturiser!!
I thought this might be a nice product for my dry/combination skin that's prone to breakouts.
I need something moisturizing throughout the day under my liquid foundation so that my cheeks don't dry up completely, yet I also have to make sure the moisturizer doesn't break me out. I was hoping this would work since it's for combination skin. I really liked how it doesn't smell too strong and how it doesn't break me out at all. However, it feels like a serum rather than a moisturizer. It didn't hydrate me at all. My skin would absorb the product in a few minutes and my Clarins foundation would dry my skin very quickly.
It's nice as a moisturizer on its own, however. It doesn't break me out and gets absorbed nicely by the skin.
I use this product along with Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Tamarind and the Toning Lotion with Iris.
It has lovely smell and easy to apply because the consistency is quite runny so it's easy to smooth over the face. It however, does not feel very moisturizing, but keeps me oil-free for a good few hours. I would have bought it again if the price was lower, but at this price I expect something more.
My biggest complaint against this product is the packaging. It's the worst packaging I've ever seen. The pump is too stiff, and if you press hard then suddenly it just spits out the moisturizer all over! The cap is so loose that once I picked it up and the cap got detached and the bottle fell, thank goodness it did not break and now I have to be really careful when picking the bottle up. The bottle is also unnecessarily heavy. I expect Clarins to do much better than this when it comes to packaging.
I have combination skin with a huge pore problem ! Almost all moisturisers make the pores look big and dirty. So i tried this lotion and it works, the skin looks quite fresh almost all day. Ealier i used to have oily areas ( T zone problem) , but this helps here. It stuffs a bit pores, but it is good. I think i will use it in the future, too. The skin doesnt look oily after few hours from cleansing. It keeps clean almost all day or at least till afternoon.
I have combination skin, proned to breakout and I LOVE this moisturiser. It's very light and when it has completely absorbed in the skin you barely notice that it's there. I'm on my 6th bottle now. It's probably the best non greasy moisturiser I've used and it's cheaper than other light weight moisturisers from Estee Lauder and Lancome (Australian prices). The only thing that annoys me about this is the packaging. It's in an ugly green bottle and it's hard to remove the remaining lotion once the bottle gets close to being empty. I use this during the day then apply the Clairns UV SPF 30 sunscreen and my skin does not feel heavy or greasy.
This is one very confusing product. It was extremely oily for me but this is met for acne-prone skin so I dont know what to say. It works for some but not all.
This product is ok. It is very light and it smells lovely. It does not feel moisturizing but it doesnt leave my combi skin dry either; it does however give a really nice sensation to my skin. It does not clog pores or give me a matte finish - :) i prefer a face moisturizer that has a thicker consistency than this as i like to massage the cream into my skin. i've tried numerous face creams/lotion and this one is my least favorite. i would say this is only good for those with oily or extremely oily skin. I have combo skin so it didnt work out for me.
This moisturizer is not bad but not amazing either. It moisturizes pretty well and my skin doesn't become very oily with it. But I'd say that for the little amount you get this product come off quite expensive, mostly if you have a tight budget.
In terms of packaging, I have to say I love the pump!
The smell is not that strong, I find it quite nice and it goes away fairy quickly.
I find this moisturizer to be okay, but I wouldn't repurchase this product again, because you can probably get the same results with other moisturizers that are much cheaper.
