Usually i have combination oily skin, and its also sensitive ( iam very fair), but i moved to a scandinavian country for a year and during the winter my skin got very irritated and dry. My cream made for oily skin didnīt work anymore. My sister used Hydra Zen so i decided to try it. Other creams i had tried for dry skins just made me break out. At first i was not sure i was going to like it as it was scented, and thought it might be irritable. However i love this cream, it moisturized my skin and the dry red patches disappeared. Though i still get the occasional break out, its far less than any other creams i tried for dry skin. I recommend this product even for combination and sensitive skin that can break out. Only draw back is how expensive this cream is in Europe. Its alot more reasonable in North America. If you are planning to travel for a long period to Europe, or Asia i recommend you buying it in USA or Canada first. On the coldest harsh days, about -20 i noticed my skin still gets irritated from the cold.Update.High price for this cream but i would get it again if i can get a discount, however would not buy this during summer as my skin is oilier and breaking out more which is a shame as i love how it makes the skin so soft and glowing like no other cream. Also the scent is so wonderful. Review was for the de stressing for dry skin not the neurocalm.
This is the review for Hydra Zen Advanced De-stressing Moisturizing Cream. Texture is very light cream that absorbs fast. Claimed for Normal/Dry/Very Dry skin, I was dryish when I used this, and the hydration it provides is pretty good, even though it's not really remarkable. I think very dry skin will not be happy with this. As other Lancome moisturizer I've tried, this leaves velvety soft and glowing skin, but overtime the softness/glow are gone, leaving no difference than if I use my drugstore moisturizer. Fragrance is kinda weird for me, but I can live with it. I don't have redness so I don't know how well this calms my skin, but overall I think this cream is very pricey for what it does. For the availability of anti-stressing/anti-polutant qualities, I still give it a 3.
This brought out my ezcema! Would never buy again.

I used the hydra zen cream for very dry skin. The first 3-4 weeks the cream was very good and felt destressing for my sencitive skin and I was very happy with the result. Then my face started to get irritated, feeling drier then before and suddenly I'm having a lot of black heads.
Would not purchase again!
My all time HG is aqua fusion gel-creme, but when I went to buy it the SA told me they didnt have any more in stock and then talked me into buying this. Well this is NOTHING like aqua fusion lets put it that way! AF sinks straight into my skin leaving it velvety smooth....this felt greasy and the fragrance was too strong. Also my face was feeling kinda dry after using tan on my face a lot over the week and this didnt do much in terms of moisturising. I used it as a night cream too, and woke up the next morning with red blemishes all over the tip of my nose and sides. would NEVER recommend this.
I am working in the buld with the air conditioner on yearly round. My skin is very dry and this product can't help at well. It doesnt deserve this much price
I really liked this cream. It's so refreshing. I have noticed my skin is much brighter and clearer. My skin feels so soft. I would defintely buy it again!
This review is for the "very dry skin"-cream. My skin is so difficult to moisturize. It can't make it's mind up if it's dry or combination or even oily at times. Mostly it's just very sensitive, prone to random blotchiness and irritation. If a cream is too heavy my skin breaks out immediately. To make matters worse I live in a very cold, harsh climate with very dry indoor air. I had my reservations about this one since it's for very dry skin, it could have been a nightmare. Instead it's a dream come true. My skin simply behaves. No redness, no clogging, no breakouts, no dryness, no itching. NOT A THING IS WRONG!!!! My skin is soft, even, toned and happy! I love you Lancome!
Okay basic moisturizer, but nothing special considering how expensive it is!
