2 Minute Review: L’Oreal Hydra Genius Aloe Water

L'Oreal Hydra Genius Aloe Water

I am someone who has always had very dry skin, not to touch or appearance, but more how it feels when i'm not taking care of it with the right products. Let's just say I could never get away with skipping moisturising - not that I would want to - and usually the moisturisers that work come at quite a cost.

I purchased the L'Oreal Hydra Genius Aloe Water on a bit of a whim (it was 30% off) and with little expectation. I have been failed time and time again by drugstore moisturisers that are just not hydrating enough for my skin type. But this time I wasn't disappointed! And I just had to share it with you guys. 

The L'Oreal Hydra Genius Aloe Water is seriously hydrating, and even better it fully absorbs into you skin within about 30 seconds, leaving the perfect base for your make-up. It's serum like in consistency and smells really fresh. I'm so impressed! 

Plus it's currently £6.66 (1/3 off) in Boots. So if you're curious, or forever on the search for a really hydrating drugstore moisturiser like me, then now's the time to give it a try!

    I love the fact that it absorbs super quickly into the skin it’s something that I’ve never witnessed before with any moisturiser. Only downside is that I find the bottle seems to be going down quite fast!

    • So true! This has got to be the fastest absorbing i’ve ever tried! Yes it is – that’ something i’ve noticed too, I think the bottle will still last a couple of months though so not too bad! XX

  • Love the sound of this! I have quite dry skin so think it would be really good for me.

    This sounds like an amazing product. I also have dry skin, and I am constantly on the lookout for a good moisturizing product.
    Awesome post!


    • You have to give this a go if you’re looking for something good from the drugstore! 🙂 xx

  • i have dry skin myself and i use the ordinary products only. they are the best but this range from l’oréal looks really lovely too.


    • I haven’t tried anything from the ordinary yet – they are next on my list. Their stuff sounds incredible xx

  • I 100% know what you mean that you skin only gets dry if you don’t take care of it. It’s so moody haha! I’ll definitely have to add this into my rotation of moisturizers!
