I personally think this is suited for most skin types; but not all, I’m a huge fan of Hyaluronic acid, although looking at the ingredient list it’s half way down..
“Aqua / Water, Glycerin Soin Testé Sous Contrôle Dermatologique, A Lcoho L Denat., D Imethi Cone, Hydroxyethylpiperazine Ethane Sulfonic Acid, Pentylene Glycol, Peg-20 Methyl GlucoseSesquistearate, Peg-60 Hydrogenated CastorOil, Silanetriol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Hydroxide, Silica Dimethyl Silylate [Nano] / Silica DimethylSilylate, Hyaluronic Acid, Ascorbyl Glucoside, Ammonium Polyacryloyldimethyl Taurate , Disodium Edta, Caprylyl Glycol, Citric Acid, Xanthan Gum, T-Butyl Alcohol, Betula AlbaJuice, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Octyldodecanol, Butylene Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Tocopherol, Potassium Sorbate, Sorbic Acid, Sodium Benzoate, Phenoxyethanol, Ci 42090 /Blue 1, Linalool, Limonene, Parfum /Fragrance”
As with all L’Oréal products it’s very heavily fragranced which some people may find off putting if they have a sensitive nose, however for me, it’s a clean fresh scent; just very heavy, this is the Linalool – a synthetic citrus oil; towards the end of the ingredient list.
They’ve done a bit of a sneaky one, I spot 2 alcohol ingredients, the first; quite highly on the list and the second further down, I don’t quite understand why they continuously add alcohol based ingredients on a moisturiser for dry skin or in any moisturiser for that matter.
I have used this every morning before my SPF since mid- June when I did a mini post. I love the gel like consistency which is the Aloe Vera element. It feels light as glides on nicely and absorbs rather quickly without leaving a trace of residue or stickyness, just a nice moisturised soft canvas, it also doesn’t pill when applying SPF afterwards.
I’m unsure about recommending this product:
- Nice consistency
- Absorbs really well
- Wonderfully packaged
- Contains Aloe Vera
- Contains Hyaluronic Acid
- Contains alcohol
- May be too heavily fragranced for sensitive noses
- Too many synthetic and unnecessary ingredients
- Might not be suitable for acne prone skin due to the alcohol content
Have you used this? How did you find it?
