the reason I would not buy thia product again is because this light moisturizer caused breakouts on my cheeks. I used this for 2 days and suddenly voila! zits all over my cheeks. I really love the white perfect range because it works wonderfully on my oily skin. Unfornutately the hydrafresh range does not suit me. Nice packaging though.. love the whitish-green colour and its texture.

I picked this moisturizer as a summer day moisturizer since it has SPF 15, and it's a gel-cream. It comes with a typical L'oreal floral fragrance. I didn't quite like this product in the end because it was very very greasy. I needed to blot my face immediately after I apply this lotion.

I decided to use this moisturiser to experiment with different ones over a long period of time, and as this one (Normal / Combo) was specified for my skin type I decided to try it.

This product is excellent, it moisturises beautifully with just a small amount so it will last awhile, it doesn't make my skin feel greasy at all and it absorbs quickly. I've seen a few comments saying about the packaging and hygiene. Honestly? If you use clean hands everytime before using the product this isn't really an issue. I find the tub handy so you can also see how much is left.

Overall I would say a great product,
- Moisturses beautifully
- Doesn't feel greasy and absorbs quickly
- Doesn't make me break out at all
- Leaves my skin feeling refreshed and smooth.
- Has a slight fragrence which doesn't seem to irritate my skin at all but makes you feel cleaner.

It also seems to keep oil under control, my face isn't shining by midafternoon which before, it did. Everyone is different, so reviews can help, but really you will only really know until you try it for yourself. I give this * * * *

Terrible. Manages to be both greasy and non-hydrating. Heavy on petrochemical ingredients, heavy on fragrance, low on quality.

i have this in normal and i like it! it smells nice and does an okay job in moisturising my face in the summer. reminded me of laneige's water sleep mask. also have this in the anti-shine formula.

Light. Good for humid weather and for oily skin too.
Use only a little bit. Slather it on, blot with tissue and it won't look gummy.
It's like a cheaper version of Clinique's Moisture Surge. I like that it has no SPF, L'Oreal's SPF stuff makes my eyes water. Don't know if I'll repurchase though. There are many moisturisers out there and this one isn't fantastic enough for me to give others a miss. Plus the damn thing is in a jar not a tube, which exposes more product to the environment. Why can't they just put it into a tube?
EDIT: Prolonged use (once a day for a fortnight) gave me zits on my cheeks.

This product was awful for me. I bought it cheap at the airport for approximately 4. It was the pink jar for dry skin, in a gel/creme type texture. Although I slathered on loads my skin was still really dry and I suspect the moisturiser doesn't absorb into skin well. It just sat on my face! After a few days I switched back to my normal dermalogica stuff and my skin is happy again.

I think this is my lesson well learnt that cheap moisturisers don't work! L'oreal is owned by the same group as Lancome and I have heard before that the formulations are similar. I have also used Lancome's Hydrazen, and although I wouldn't repurchase, the reason is more so because it is overpriced rather than it doesn't work at all!

The only reason I bought this moisturizer is because I heard it's oil free and I need a moisturizer that wouldn't break me out. I don't know where to begin on how awful it is. It burns when I apply it, leaves me face bright red and reflective, stays greasy and shiny for hours, leaves my face sticky (eew!) and isn't very moisturizing. I also don't like how it's in a tub as opposed to having a pump but that's nothing compared to the stuff I mentioned above. The only pro is that it didn't break me out.

The only reason I bought this was because it seemed like a good moisturizer for a good price. It did moisturize but not as much as I needed, its ok but nothing impressive.
