YES!! This is a wonderful product! I recommend it to everyone, esp when you had a mishap with another cream.
This moisturizer saved my skin after Estee Lauder Daywear made is awfully dry and itchy! ( Horrible!! ) It moisturizes reaaally well, makes the skin soft and in my case helped to get rid of the redness and itchy feeling.
The only negative thing is that i use it pretty quickly so one package is about 2.5 weeks for me, but it is worth the price!!

I wish this product were available in the U.S.
In the summertime, this is my preferred moisturizer. It is light, makes my skin comfortable, does not cause irritation. In short, it is a great, reasonably priced moisturizer. I'm not entirely sure how this differs from Toleriane or Hydraphase, but I've used those, and I vastly prefer the entire Hydreane line. (Of course.)
I have extremely dry skin: I use this in the summer, and switch to Hydreane Riche in the winter, when my skin needs more. Most normal/combo skin people could probably use this year-round.

Hydreane Legere moisturizing cream is target towards normal/combination skin that is sensitive. My skin fits in this category but I'm also prone to acne break outs. I don't like using moisturizers targeted to acne because they tend to be very drying, more suited to those with oily skin. In this case, I prefer treating my breakouts with benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid.
This moisturizer is quite lovely for anyone who has normal to combination skin. For me, it has the perfect level of moisture: it doesn't make my skin oilier or greasy, my skin actually feels very soft and perfectly moist.
The product is white and while it may look a bit thicker, it goes very light on the skin. Smell wise, I don't really notice any particular scent- so it's perfect for all of those people how hate overscented products.
This moisturizer has been quite a nice find for me. It comes in a 40 mL plastic tube and it cost me 11€ which isn't bad at all for a moisturizer (at least where I live). The only downside is that you get less amount of product, considering the average moisturizer is 50 mL.
All in all, I recommend this as a basic moisturizer- if you're looking for moisturizer that will offer something extra, I'd suggest you to look for another one.

This is another great product from La Roche, this cream is perfect for combo or drier skin types. It is light but hydrating, soaks in well and smells great. I use this and effaclar k for my combo skin depending on how my skin is reacting. This is great for sensitive skin and I use this after chemical peels to rehyrdrate without irritation or damage. This is a great choice for someone with oily skin for the winter. I will be re-purchasing.

Nothing special about this cream. For the price it could have done better. I'd rather buy a bit more expensive skin care moisturizer if it will not give me break out.

I don't usually write reviews about products unless I firmly believe in them and recommend them to others. This cream is absolutely fantastic. I have dry and extremely sensitive skin. I have always had issues with finding both cosmetics and moisturizers that didn't irritate my skin in some shape or form. This is the first moisturizer that has not broken me out, hydrated my skin and cleared it all at the same time. My skin previously to buying this cream was agitated and dry due to exposure from previous products and never really seemed to clear until I used this cream. Now, my skin/complexion is in a far greater condition, its clearer softer and far more hydrated. It's worth the money

I love this moisturizer!
Its very lightweight, not sticky, absorbs quickly and hydrates my very sensitive skin.
Never broke me out and does not irritate my skin.
And I love the smell!

best moisturizer ive ever used. it is moisturizing without breaking me out. it also doesnt cause greasiness nor does it create a shine. i use it day and night. also serves as a good base for my foundation. ive never looked back after switching to this (from other unsuccessful products).

Hydréane Légère does an excellent job of moisturizing my dry-combination skin and keeping it hydrated without leaving a residue or feeling greasy or heavy. It's perfect under sunblock and under makeup, and it's great for sensitive skin. I also have (and love) Hydréane Riche, which I use at night; I used to use it in the daytime, too, but I switched to a more rich, hydrating foundation.
The only caveat: For a product marketed for those with sensitive skin, both Hydréane moisturizers are noticeably fragranced. The scent is not at all offensive, but if you do not like fragrance in your moisturizer, you might not appreciate this.

Now it’s one of my favourite creams. I love it because
1. it absorbs quickly
2. hydrates my skin and does not leave it greasy
3. calms my skin reducing redness and allergy
I have very sensitive skin. This cream helps to keep in a good condition by reducing all imperfections even before my period.

This was nice, light moisture for my oily skin. I used it primarily at night, and never broke out in response to it. I also loved the floral smell and the cool, light texture of it. I would continue using this as my daily moisturizer if it was available at my drugstore any more, but it's not.
My husband has drier skin with rosacea, and preferred the Riche version.

I love this moisturiser. I have searched for a long while trying to find the perfect one. I've tried Cliniques, Origins, Avene, but found this one sitting in my local Boots store.
The first thing I noticed which I liked was the scent, it's so fresh and not overpowering which I like.
I had some dry spots on my face (cheek area which were kinda red) after using this for 2 nights they were gone! :D
It applies really easily and hasn't caused me any breakouts, which, for some reason, usually happens with most moisturisers, its nice and light, not too thick.

My skintype seem to vary quite a lot. At times I´m very dry, sensitive or even oily (mostly in the summertime). The last months I´ve been very dry and sensitive (reacted to many products). I even react to water by ending up with dry spots. I always use Dermalogica products but I decided to give this cream a try. At first I felt a burning sensation after applying the Hydreane legere and wanted to return it. I´m glad I decided to give it another go and this time my skin did not react to it at all. I figured out that the first time I had used a toner for dry skin and the two do not go well together. Strange! However, I love this cream. It moisturizes my skin and makes it look dewy. I sometimes have to reapply the cream because my skin still feels dry but I am afraid that the richer version of this cream (Hydreane riche) will break me out because it contains mineral oil (petrolatum) so I prefer reapplying the legere. This cream has not broken me out yet and I hope it will not (only used it for a week now).

I really like this moisturizer. I have sensitive combo skin that gets very shiney by around 11 am. I find a lot of moisturizers are too heavy for me in the day. I love Chanel Eclat Cream for the day but can't find it in Canada (Stock up when I'm in Europe). The Hydreane Legere reacts very similar with my skin and is far less expensive than Chanel. Glides on easily, sinks in, doesn't appear greasy and face feel nice and moisturized, don't think I could ask for anything else.

I bought this product after being convinced by the sales person, about how it will moisturize well my face and how it won't clog my pores. I was searching for a new moisturizer to try because I don't find my old moisturizer hydrating enough. So I bought it. It costs 30$ (Canadian dollar). I find it pretty expensive compared to all the other moisturizers I've tried.
When I start using it, I really liked it at first because it smelled really nice and it doesn't make my face tight at all after applying and it sort of gave me a little glow. HOWEVER, IT TOTALLY BROKE ME OUT AFTER 2 WEEKS OF USING THIS PRODUCT. I was so disappointed. I didn't get those small pimples that goes away in 1 or 2 days, it was those big painful pimples (on my cheeks) that stayed for a whole week!!!
I stopped using this product ever since and I definetely WON'T buy it again. I guess my skin reacted really badly to whatever ingredients that was in the moisturizer.

At first I really loved this product. It has a fantastic texture - light but moisturising and sinks in fast. I used this for a number of months but eventually admitted to myself that it was this product out of my daily routine which was breaking me out. : (
I've since changed products to Avene and I am having better luck.
I would certainly recommend this product for normal/combo skin as long as it doesn't cause you to break out!
09/10/11 EDIT: I recently returned to this product and it seems to suit my skin much better. It no longer (if indeed it was the culprit in the first place) breaks me out and I think it's a really good product!

This is an OK moisturizer. I got it as a gratis for attending a La Roche Posay training school. I have combo, sensitive acne-prone skin with a strong penchant for dehydration. I was expecting this to hydrate my skin without making it oily, and obviously not exacerbating or causing any acne.
It is somewhat moisturizing, and I didn't react to it(except there were rare occasions when my skin was kinda burning in spots after applying it), however, I thought it would be better at combatting dehydration, but I just found it like any other moisturizer that doesn't target hydration.
One of my biggest issues with it is I found that after cleansing and toning, I would apply it while my skin was still moist, as is the general rule for applying moisturizers, but I found that it often "set" on my skin, and didn't soak in too much, and a few minutes later, if I rubbed my skin, it would ball off similarly to over-applied primer. I tried using less and less, and still encountered the same problem.
As well, I didn't feel like it was helping the acne-situation. If i felt like i was going to break out, I always veered away from using this as my moisturizer, as if i had zits forming under the skin... this would probably make them worse, but I don't think it caused any itself, if that makes sense.
Overall, it's alright for people who have uncomplicated, sensitive skin that's normal/combo, but it doesn't do much hydrating or nourishing, it's just kinda inoffensive. I have used it as a "filler" moisturizer when I don't have anything else better, so what's the point of that?

I have extremely sensitive skin but needed to find a moisterizer that would help my increasingly dry skin. This product is amazing. I have been using this for about two months and my skin is soft, smooth and flake free. I highly recommend this product to anyone with sensitive aging skin.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Sensitive, Fair Hair: Brown, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
I used this yesterday for the first time. It instantly hydrated my skin, leaving it soft and smooth without making it shiny or greasy. It even cleared up a little patch of eczema that was starting to flare up on my cheek.
