MY TAKE ON LOREAL PARIS HYDRA FRESH ANTI-OX AQUA BALM
Packaging: The product comes in a sturdy glass jar packaging characteristic of loreal moisturizers/face masks. The packaging is of great quality and the bottle won’t break even if it slips.
Texture: Since the product is called ‘balm’, it rightly has the balm-like thick texture and needs some massaging to blend in the product perfectly.
Fragrance: The balm has a very mild grapeseed essential oil fragrance which I love.
How I use and after-effects: To use, simply dot your face with the balm and massage thoroughly.
I have combination skin and I always prefer lightweight moisturizers. This product is actually a balm and gives a heavy dose of moisture and hydration to your skin which is perfect if you have dry patches or if its winter. I do not have any dry patches currently (and its very hot and humid here in Mumbai) but the product intensely nourishes my skin and maintains its softness and moisture. Although I do not like the ‘heavy’ feeling on my combination skin, but this is a great product to use in winters or when you are sleeping in AC to wake up with a soft nourished skin. Also, I have issues with using all matte makeup products on my skin at the same time since it gives a cakey finish so this balm works great as a base! The balm is made for normal to dry skin and will work wonders for the right skin type. I might not use this regularly but I find myself using this in upcoming winter season for sure!
