L'OREAL Hydrafresh Anti-Shine Icy Gel

Okay, let's face it. Oily and cracked skin on the face is utterly horrible! At times, my skin would crack around my nose and mouth. This usually happens when I don't drink enough water or when the weather gets too hot. And believe me, it ain't pretty. Did I mentioned that I dislike my shiny skin as well? Oil blotting papers have been a life-saver...

Over the past years, I have been searching for the perfect yet affordable moisturizer. Most didn't work for me. Some even broke me out :( So I was really thankful when I found the L'OREAL Hydrafresh Anti-Shine Icy Gel.

The description of the product says:

"For the first time, L'OREAL Skincare Laboratories formulated Deep Marine Source Water naturally enriched in purifying minerals to clear your skin from shininess and durably supply it with hydration"

This product really did mattify my skin by absorbing the excessive sebum. It kept my skin matte for a good few hours. It also kept my skin hydrated and thus, prevented me from becoming crackzilla. The gel is rather light in texture. It absorbs quickly into the skin and leaves it refreshed and matte. It is also non-sticky which I love. Greasy and sticky creams are a big no-no for me!

What I also like about this product is that it gives a wonderful splash of freshness when applied on. It really has a cooling effect. The icy gel is also fragrant, which is a plus point. Its fragrance is light, not the heavy overwhelming kind which leaves your head spinning. 

I feel that this product is reasonably priced at RM24.90. Thanks to all its positive effects, this Hydrafresh Anti-Shine Icy Gel is now my primary moisturizer ^^


  1. I have shiny skin too with open pores! After this product, none of these problems ever occurred and my skin feels fresh all day long. LOVE IT! =D

    1. Great to hear that it works well for you too! :)
