L'Oreal Hydra Genius Liquid Care Review



One of my most bought skincare products has got to be moisturisers. I've got dry, dehydrated and sensitive skin that reacts really quickly to the weather. If I don't use a moisturiser in the morning and at night then I'll be left tackling dry, flakey, tight skin - not a good look. With that I'm always on the lookout to find new hydrating moisturisers so that my skin doesn't get a chance to get used to one and stop benefiting from it. Is that really a thing? So whilst I'm browsing the shelves of Superdrug and Boots I'm always on the lookout for key words - Hydrating, Hyaluronic Acid, Dry Skin and Boost. The L'Oreal Hydra Genius Liquid Care ticked those boxes and quickly made an appearance in my skincare routine.

L'Oreal brought out their Hydra Genius Liquid Care products towards the start of 2017 and it's one of the first gel formula moisturisers I've used from the 'drug-store'. The gel is really lightweight and doesn't feel at all greasy or suffocating, it glides onto my skin and sinks in, getting to work quickly. You can really feel the boost of hydration as soon as you start massaging it in. I use it all over my face and down onto my neck every morning before applying my makeup and then again at night once I've cleaned my face, so it's hard to know if it really does give a 72 hour recharge but it definitely refreshes my skin and leaves it feeling healthier. 


Onto the scientific stuff. The two main ingredients of the Hydra Genius Liquid Care is Aloe Water and Hyaluronic acid. Aloe water reinforces the skin barrier condition and locks in moisture to prevent water loss which is a must for dehydrated skin. Aloe water is also good for encouraging deep hydration because it boosts water diffusion within the skin cells. Hyaluronic acid keeps skin plump and hydrated and it's been a buzz word that I look out for in my skincare ever since trying Hydraluron years ago. It's key for keeping the skin hydrated and healthy and battling issues like spots and ageing.

Quite clearly these photos were taken when I first bought the Hydra Genius Liquid Care but it's been a firm favourite in my skincare routine for months and the bottle is still going strong. When you're using a product twice a day you'd expect it to go down quickly but the 70ml Hydra Genius looks set to last for about 6 months. It only takes a pump or two to cover your face and the pump works really well to avoid wasting product. As for the rest of the packaging, I quite like the glass bottle and metallic top. Looks quite high-end compared to other High Street skincare products.


I can't recommend this moisturising gel enough. It's an affordable option that leaves visible results and really lives up to it's genius name-tag when it comes to hydrating, refreshing and recharging your skin. Good work L'Oreal. If you've got Normal to Dry skin or Normal to Combination Skin there's a Hydra Genius Liquid Care formulated for your skin too.
