Hi Guys, Today I am reviewing Loreal Paris Hydrafresh Anti-Shine Icy Gel. A radiant, flawless skin is every girl’s dream and believe me I am dusky, I know how much I crave for it. Well our busy life, city pollution and damage caused by sun just leave us to be totally dependent on many beauty products.But the question is whether they meet the promises they make .
Be it a high costly brand or the one that you can afford, most of them don’t meet what they promise. Well, I have extremely oily skin and sometimes combination skin which is very difficult to handle in humid weather.
For all the problems I have found out a good product which helps to control the oil in your skin and also maintains the cooling effect.
Yes! Loreal Paris hydrafresh anti-shine gel fits perfect for a skin type I got and keeps my skin fresh and radiant.
A light weight skin cooling texture which brings an instant ocean splash to your skin locking in a reserve of freshness and hydration. It controls your skin temperature to prevent perspiration and shine. Enriched with micro sponge technology it regulates the sebum and inhibits excessive oil production to bring immediate mattifying action.
PRICE IN INDIA: 500/- for 50ML

The major problem with Loreal Paris Hydrafresh product is its ingredients list which is missing from the packaging cover and the description just mentions sponges,zinc and ocean water.
The product comes in a light aqua green colored glass jar which is heavy. Pot packing is quiet unhygienic as you have to again and again dip your fingers to take a small amount of gel and opening it repetitively makes the ingredients lose its effect as they come in the contact of air. The texture of gel is light weight and it is little thinner than gels which feels like more marine water.

WILL I REPURCHASE LOREAL HYDRAFRESH ANTI-SHINE HYDRATING ICY GEL?
A big no. You might be wondering that initially I was recommending it because in the initial days it feels that it benefits your skin but it just made my skin more acne prone and on the whole there was no benefit to my skin.The matte effect just stays for 4 to 5 hours so again a big reason not to buy it again. Also, its unhygienic as one needs to use fingers to dig out the gel which then accumulate on your skin to cause more acne.
