When my brother recently had a vacation in Bangkok, he asked me what I wanted. Since there was nothing particular in mind I just told him to get me anything skincare. Hehe So he ended up getting me the L'Oreal Hydrafresh Moisturizer.

L'Oreal Dermo-Expertise Hydrafresh

What they say: Everyday the skin loses hydration, minerals and essential vitamins. When dehydrated, the skin is more tired-looking and less resilient. Consequently, the skin appears less radiant, its surface dry and rough.

INNOVATION: The L'Oreal Laboratories creates HYDRAFRESH ACTIVE DAY MOISTURISER, designed for 24 hour hydration. The melting formula contaons essential minerals - calcium and magnesium - and Vitamins C,E and B5. It provides an ideal dose of moisture to leave skin feeling perfectly hydrated, fresh and comfortable throughout the day.

ACTION: HYDRAFRESH ACTIVE DAY helps maintain an optimum level of water in the skin by locking in hydration. The vitamin-mineral formula intensely moisturises, refreshes and reinvigorates the skin.

It comes with another cap inside aside from the lid which I really like since you don't experience opening moisturisers to find only 30% of the contents at the back of the lid. Isn't that such a waste? In this case, I use a clean spatula to get the product to avoid contamination.

The moisturiser feels really light and is in a gel formula. I love this type of formula because it feels so light, moisturised and breathable.

Texture: The melting cream texture with its refreshing fragrance is a pleasure to apply. Non-greasy, it instantly sinks into your skin to leave it feeling soft and smooth.

I totally agree with the product's description with the texture. This is what sold me, and the refreshing fragrance smells really really nice!

HYDRAFRESH totally bended in my skin

I love how this product keeps my skin so fresh and moisturised without it feeling heavy and oily. I already have crazy oily skin and the last thing I need is to have my moisturizer really heavy and cause more oil. I don't want to now wear moisturiser so I'm glad my brother got me this. :)

I just don't know if this variant is available in the Philippine market and if so, I'm not too sure on the price range too. Do you guys know if this is available in The Philippines? :)

Toodles! :)


  1. I have used this before. I loved how it was a gel formula. Left my skin feeling fresh.
    Great choice by your brother.

  2. Thanks for the review. I have oily skin too.

  3. Your brother knows how to pick nice products ha, I can't rely on my kuya for that. And like you, I have super oily skin din, and I hate it when moisturizers are too thick. Thanks for the review. =) Happy Monday. Caby!

  4. Haven't seen this before but I really want to try a moisturizer that is similar in texture. Kind of like a gel but not...you know? lol

  7. The square is characterised by low mountains, areas and
    additionally indented coastline with harbours, bays,
    creeks, sandy beaches, warm turquoise blue waters to the Water and
    Amusement Park riddled with rides. 5 You get a call the next business
    day from the paphos car hire company that offers Cheap paphos car
    hire Florida that is best for you. Teachers do not have to be tensed
    or confused over how you can stay on the edge of Nissi

  9. No doubt, running bad credit is a worse tag that none wants to carry on. But it is another truth about the fiscal issue that people fall into bad credit score due to lots of problems and non-repaying issue.
    loans to pay back over 2 months
    loans for people on benifts
    14 day loan
    text loan for 15 days

  10. I have to agree with you that hidroquinone can perform skin care quickly. But it would be better that natural skin care better for the skin, because they are generally more secure and does not cause skin irritation. The most common misconceptions about charcoal is that they can cause darkening of the skin and do not realize the importance and can help provide for our skin.
