This is a really nice basic moisturiser in a pot. But that's kinda it.
Pleasant, subtle scent. Provides good hydration and has a light texture and is not greasy at all. Very good for summer days, though in winter you might want something more thick and nourishing. Didn't irritate my sensitive skin and it genuinely felt like a splash of water on the face.
If you want a non-greasy moisturiser that does the job, this might be for you. Although there's probably just as good ones at a lower price point.
I liked it a lot, but not enough for me to repurchase. Wouldn't frown if I get it as a gift though, it'll get used up, especially during the summer.
Sits very well under make up too!

I have used the Lancome Hydra Zen anti-stress moisturising cream (with SPF 15) for almost 8 years with pleasure and loyalty. However, since last week I had an allergic reaction to the cream when I bought a new jar. They have changed the packaging over the years, but I assume that the ingredients have not been changed. Currently, my face and neck are itchy, have little red bumps and is very dry. My whole face feels like a sandpaper and I never had this before! My skin is usually smooth, soft and have no blemishes or impurities. I wonder why I suddenly have an allergic reaction because I have not changed anything in my daily care routine. When I studied the ingredients carefully, I have found out that it contains a lot of parfum, alcohol and parabens, which may cause skin irritation. Therefore, this cream is not suitable for a sensitive skin. I went to the pharmacy for advice and they recommended Eucerin (which is fragrance- and paraben-free). I have stopped using Lancome Hydra Zen now and it's a pity because I still have 2 full jars at home (since it is quite expensive). I hope my irritated skin will improve after using Eucerin. Personally I would not buy this product anymore but it's up to you whether you want to try. Every skin reacts differently and in the beginning this was a great product, otherwise I have not used it for a long period of time.

I got Hydra Zen Neurocalm moisturizer for Christmas and was very excited about it, because I would not normaly spend this much money on moisturizer. At first it felt good on my skin (not great as I expected and hoped for), then my skin started to feel a bit uncomfortable (even though my skin is not sensitive at all). The perfumation is quite intense, maybe that's why my skin feels a little irritated. I had to stop using it during winter, because my skin is always so dry and this one is not enough. It's quite good during summer - I think my skin got used to it and looks brighter and pores are invisible somehow. Anyway, it's not my favorite product. The price is too high and quality is just OK. I wouldn't buy it again and wouldn't recomend it. There are many more cheaper and better moisturizers.

i think this moisturizer goes on the skin beautifully , it has a thick consistency but it doesnt make your face appear greasy at all and makes your skin feel soft. However this moisturizer made my skin break out and i noticed that when you wear this as a base under makeup , towards the middle of the day you can feel your face getting more greasy and then your make up starts to slip and slide. The only moisturizer that is fantastic to use under your makeup is cetaphil moisturizer it remains my hg moisturizer. I tried lancome moisturizer because i received it as a gift but i would never buy this product.

This review is for the Hydra Zen moisturizer with spf 15.

I gave this cream 3 stars. It is mediocre for me. It applies thickly and is difficult to blend. But on the positive side it has never caused me any "pilling" (when the product rolls into little balls, especially when applying base). And my skin feels soft, has not broken out more than usual, and has not had any dry patches (cold dry air right now). I probably will not repurchase, but will finish the cream on my face. I am on a quest for the perfect face cream, and want to try something new next time.

The best moisturizer I have ever used. In general I'm a massive fan of Lancome, and this has to be the best product I've ever used from them which is saying a lot. Before I never used to religiously use a moisturizer but now I will use nothing else but this. It feels light on the skin, but deeply hydrating. My skin always feels so healthy and plump after application and always looks very dewy and luminous. It's non-greasy and fast absorbing, and a little goes a long way. It's very very soothing, and incredibly gentle - perfect for sensitive skin. It's amazing, cannot recommend enough!

This is quite thick but not oily or greasy. It did a good job in giving me enough moisture without breaking me out.

Very similar to other Loreal group moisturisers.

Great smell, but still leaves my skin dry.

I had a relative who worked with Lancome and for years I would get samples from her for various products - that broke me out!

This particular moisturiser is extremely perfumed (floral) and once on my skin feels a little slimy when it gets in contact with water even hours after the application.

I now use it to moisturise my hands instead and it performs okay. Just not on my face.

Was excited about this product. When I got it home it smelled very perfume-y Going by the online reviews it was apparently great for sensitive skin. Lies. I tried it once and it burnt my face. It took about 2 weeks and a whole load of moisturizer and honey to get my face back to normal. I got the toner, cleanser and eye make-up remover from Lancome as well which all contained perfume so I couldn't use them.

Not impressed.
