Review: La roche posay Hydreane Light Moisturizing Cream

Product:  La roche posay Hydreane Light Moisturizing Cream

What I like about it: 

Tube packaging is sleek and convenient. Easy to squeeze out the right amount and is sanitary unlike jar packaging.

This is an interesting moisturizer from the Hydreane line. It's supposed to be 'light' (there is a rich version). On the back of the bottle, the instructions say that it's good to apply this before make up as a base/primer.

I find that the moisturizer works fairly well (probably suited for oily/combo skins) and it dries quickly. It almost has a mattifying effect which explains why it would be good as a primer.

What I dislike about it:

While the product/line says it's for sensitive skin, something in the product irritates me. Possibly the fragrance which while pleasant is noticeable immediately.

Overall, if you're not terribly sensitive, it's a good choice for oily/combination skin and works well under makeup.

Rating: 3/5
