This is an amazing product. The skin on my hands was really dry- they would wrinkle, crack and hurt. I was recommended the Hydra Zen Cream for normal skin. Just after 3 days of usage, I saw a marked difference in my skin. My hands no longer hurt and the cracks and scars began to heal. The skin on my hands was smooth again in just a week.
I've used it on my face as well. Though it's a cream and I have oily/dehydrated skin on my face, it absorbed very fast. The light floral scent is soothing as well.
OK product, not moisturizing enough for my dry skin in winter....maybe better in summer, i liked it for the first week but have fallen out of love with it....need more in the winter.
its epensive and the jars unhygenic maybe thats why i broke out?!...also someone told me lancome does animal testing off putting
At first i really liked the idea of a moisturiser that de-stresses the skin - the light fragrance is also calming for the senses! I bought the full size pot and i then realised that the cream was not as i expected. Nice texture, very refreshing for the skin.. But the advantages stop there. This cream is thick and sticky - definitely not the ideal base for make up- it started flaking and peeling off as soon as I applied my foundation - horrible! It has not SPF in it, no good base for make uo so no reason to use it in daytime. It seemeto be ok as a night cream apart from the fact that it was flaking on my pillow! I did not notice any difference in the morning after as I usually notice with other creams used at night. Even for half price I would not repurchase again.
Some of my friends love it. I feel OK with it. It did hydrate my skin but is not like a miracle. So I will not buy it again.
Got this as a GWP. It goes on nicely, but I don't feel much of a difference in my skin after a few uses. It's not too heavy, which I like for summer. But I think it STINKS, and the smell lingers on your face, I've noticed it an hour after applying. I really don't like moisturizer in jars; I don't think it's the best way to keep it because it gets tainted by dipping your finger in it. It's not a bad GWP, but I wouldn't ever spend money on it.
I honestly can't say that anything works better on my sensitive, combo skin. Although I love Bobbi Browns skin care, I keep going back to this! I find the scent lovely and the product seems to keep my skin tone looking calm and even. Not for people with VERY DRY skin...but for those of us who are somewhere in the middle...it's perfect.
One of the worst moisturizers I've ever used. Loaded with irritating fragrance. I would only recommend this product if your body is sun burned and bright red and you want your face to match your burn. Obviously, I thought it was garbage. Steer clear if you are sensitive.
Smells very relaxing...and instantly soothes my senses upon application. Moisturises well and my skin looks instantly relaxed and less tired. However, the cream does not last a long time as you need quite a bit to moisturise your face properly and is VERY EXPENSIVE! But I do recommend this product.
I'm writing about the normal Hydra Zen -- in a pink jar, which is not to be confused with the Hydra Zen for dry skin (in a white jar). I don't see any great benefit of this moisturiser except its pleasant scent. I had used the whole jar before writting this review just to make sure that I wasn't too haste to judge the product. It was a real waste of money. It is a light moisturiser though but it doesn't give you a healthier looking or less-dehydrating skin. Call me a fool, but I don't know what are the use of these jars really. To add more to my confusion, there are far too many Hydra Zen versions in many countries. There is also Hydra Zen for dry skin (comes in a white tub) in Europe, which is better than the normal Hydra Zen available in Asia -- the pink one. I will not repurchase this one again.
I tryed the cream to normal and dry skins.I think it has a strong smell,too strong!I would not recommend this product to sensitives skins or dryskin's.I have sensitive/dry skin and the product was to strong for me..
