Loreal Paris Hydrafresh Anti Shine Icy Gel Review

I have extremely oily skin and sometimes combination skin.If I step out in hot humid climate my makeup melts and my face becomes oily.I have tried various remedies like applying cucumber juice,multani mitti etc but none of them could control the oil secretion.
I don’t know why but I am under a heavy acne attack too from last month.I wonder if it’s due to the food I eat,Irregular periods,Hormonal Imbalance,Pollution while travelling.Whatever it is let it be.I have found out a good product recently which helps to control excess oil production in your skin and today I am going to share the product review with you.It’s none other than Loreal Paris Hydrafresh Anti Shine Icy Gel.Read on to know how it helps.
Product Claim:
  • 24 Hours Hydration and Mattifying
  • Controls Skin Temperature
  • Skin Cooling Texture
  • Makes Skin Smooth and Fresh

A light weight skin-cooling texture which brings an instant ocean splash to your skin, locking in a reserve of hydration and freshness. It controls your skin temperature to prevent perspiration and shine. Enriched with Zinc and Micro Sponge technology, it regulates the sebum and inhibits excessive oil production to bring an immediate mattifying action.

Price: 50 G For RS.499/-
Directions for Use:
Apply the gel evenly on cleansed face twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening.
Use the gel regularly.

My Take on the Product:

The product comes in a light aqua green coloured glass jar which is heavy.The jar is heavy so not so travel friendly.Some of you might feel the pot packing unhygienic but I use a spatula to take the product out.

The texture of this gel is light weighted and the consistency is little thinner than gels.It feels like marine water.It has an aquatic fragrance which is not bothersome.The smell is light and pleasant for me.

It gives a cooling sensation as soon as it is applied.It keeps my skin hydrated and moisturized and at the same time doesn’t make it greasy.It provides light moisturisation required for an oily skin.
It gives a mattifying effect and controls oil as it claims but definitely not upto 24 hours.It keeps my skin oil free upto 5-6 hours.It keeps my skin smooth and fresh.I have seen reduction in acne since the time I started using this gel.It keeps my skin shine free upto 6 hours which is a big deal for me and also the texture of my skin has improved.
It does nothing in boosting your complexion and it has no SPF.
