Comments about L'Oréal Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care Normal/Dry Skin:

I really liked this product at first, but after a few days it really started to break me out all over my chin, and I don't really have sensitive skin. With that, and the horrible smell, I tossed this product.

Comments about L'Oréal Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care Normal/Dry Skin:

I tried out a sample of this, even though I was nervous about denatured alcohol being so high up on the ingredient list (I have dry & sensitive skin). There was a some slight tingling, but nothing extreme, and my skin actually seemed to like it fine. Wouldn't work for winter or any time my skin needed extra moisture, but for just regular, daily use, this would be okay - BUT THE SMELL. This stuff made me smell like I was wearing a teenage boy's aftershave, and it didn't fade. I finally gave up and washed my face again to get it off; I couldn't deal with it. This is a terrible scent.

      Best Uses

      • Daily Use
      • Part of a Multi-Step Moisturizing Routine

      Comments about L'Oréal Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care Normal/Dry Skin:

      This should be used as you would a serum not your main lotion. Its light and absorbs quickly - leaving my skin feeling so soft instantly. For a main lotion you need something a little thicker that's going to create a moisture barrier for dry skin to keep the skin moisturized. This won't do that. But its certainly a great product if you use it as part of a multi-step moisturizer routine or if you only need a light moisturizer.

        Comments about L'Oréal Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care Normal/Dry Skin:

        I decided to skip the $120 bottle of moisturizer recommended by my aesthetician and instead purchased this product for less than $20. I cannot tell you how much better my skin looks and feels. I was hesitant since I can be susceptible to breakouts with moisturizers, but this formula is amazing. No clogged pores, super hydrated refreshed skin. I love it! Smells great but I like fragrances.

          • feels soothing to use

          • might not be rich enough for cold, winter skin
          • Not Long-Lasting

          Best Uses

          • Daily Use

          Comments about L'Oréal Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care Normal/Dry Skin:

          This product is lovely. A lightweight, pleasant smelling (definitely present, a clean fresh fragrance), quick absorbing moisturizer. It doesn't leave a sticky/greasy film, is easy and quick to apply and washes off hands easily. Its a bit more of a gel consistency (a subtle light blue shade) which is very nice to use; it feels soothing to put on. I haven't had any issues with breakouts or sensitivities. Its not a heavy moisturizer, so appropriate for normal to barely dry skin during warmer months, but would most likely not be rich enough during winters in cold climates. Its paraben free, but the company has a history of animal testing and is on PETA's list if that's a concern. I got this as a sample and purchased it right away; that's something I rarely do!

            • Q:

              Hi. Why do l'oreal products have such strong scents? I love the hydra genius but the fragrance is too much even for someone who is not sensitive to smells. Besides there's tons of research proving that added fragrance isn't necessarily beneficial to skin. So why the fragrance??
