Hello Readers, I am going to post L’Oreal Paris Hydra fresh Anti- Shine Icy Gel Review. Autumn happens to be my favorite time of the year but somehow my skin and heart do not share same tastes.

My Experience with L’Oreal Paris Hydra fresh Anti- Shine Icy Gel
The first thing which attracted me to L’Oreal Paris Hydra fresh Anti- Shine Icy Gel is this being an icy gel. It comes packed in a small jar so one has to make sure of using clean hands while digging out the product and also I start from one of the sides. The texture it has is like a light gel which is non runny and non sticky. The color of this product is light blue which looks very different to from other facial gels available in the market. As per instructions L’Oreal Paris Hydrafresh Anti- Shine Icy Gel is to be used twice a day on clean skin like a normal moisturizer.
Being an icy gel, L’Oreal Paris Hydrafresh Anti- Shine Icy Gel instantly cools down the skin on application and imparts a relaxing effect too. Due to its light consistency it is extremely easy to blend and within a few seconds it gets absorbed into the skin. The finish it gives is matte and oil free. It actually evens out the surface of the skin as promised. Instantly post usage there is no extra shine which according to the company is due to presence of zinc. The best part is that L’Oreal Paris Hydrafresh Anti- Shine Icy Gel makes the skin ready for makeup as not only it regulates oil but also hydrates the skin like a moisturizer.
The hydration that L’Oreal Paris Hydra fresh Anti- Shine Icy Gel imparts is suitable for normal to oily skin or combination skin. However for women who have extremely dry skin would not find the hydration enough. In fact, it does quench the moisture needs but only till a few hours so one needs to apply more frequently. Plus this lacks SPF so wearing a sun protection over this is a must. The ingredient list of this is cream is impressive which makes this a great gel based moisturizer to try. Last but not the least, it does not work on tightening pores as claimed.
Overall L’Oreal Paris Hydra fresh Anti- Shine Icy Gel is a great gel based moisturizer with an impressive ingredient list, skin quenching and matte finish like properties. This is recommended to people with normal to oily or combination skin.
