[REVIEW] The L'Oreal Paris Hydrafresh Anti-Shine All Day Hydrating & Matifying Icy Gel.

Hello everyone, I'm back with a new review I have been working on. It's the L'Oreal Paris Hydrafresh Anti Shine Icy Gel and it claims that it provides high hydration to the skin. Throughout the years I tend to have oily skin around my T zone area but one day I came across this product while I was doing some shopping around watsons (Malaysia). The words Matifying & Hydration caught my attention so I decided to give it a try.

Some things I need to clarify about my skin, I tend to get oily skin on my T zone area which is my forehead, nose and chin area after a few hours while my cheeks stays normal not too oily/dry. So, Im a combination type myself.

The L'Oreal Paris Hydrafresh Anti-Shine All Day Hydrating & Matifying Icy Gel.

- As seen in above's picture, it comes in a jar at 50ml. I would actually prefer if it comes in a tube as for hygiene purposes. I usually uses a spatula to scoop it out instead of putting my fingers into the jar.


- It comes in a light blue creamy colour and the texture itself is not too heavy. As the package claims that it give you a icy sensation and it  is proven to be truly icy. When the product touches your skin, it gives a cool feeling. It is easy to apply on and it absorbs quickly. After applying, it gives your face a matte finish suitable for oily/combination skin.


Your skin is mmediately cooled down, durably matifies and quenched for all day. Day after day skin gets rid of shininess and pores are clear and tightened. Skin is smooth and evened out. Full of moisture, it is “water-bouncy” and looks healthier like “water transparent.”


I usually apply it around my Tzone area. I do not personally use this as a moisturizer all over my face as it tends to over dry other parts of my skin. After cleansing, toner and moisturizer, I apply EtudeHouse's BB Cream and after Im ready, I use this to pat it onto my Tzone area to provide a matte finish.


This doesn't have to limited to moisturizer only as it can also be used as a mask. Apply a generous amount all over your face and leave it for 15minutes and wash/wipe it off. Use it once a week and you can clearly see a difference. 


- It is suitable for most people living in a tropical area just like myself in Brunei/Malaysia.
- It is easily available at Watsons, Guradian or any drugstore.
- It is 50g along with a great price approx of RM$30
- It provides a matte finish so your skin wont be oily.


- Apart from it's cooling sensation and matifying purposes, it does not improve your skin complex.
- Should have came in a tube/pump instead of  a jar.

Overall Rating of the Product 4/5

Price - 4/5 
It was worth it as the product does what it claims to do and it comes in 50g which is a steal.

Packaging - 3/5 
I don't like how it comes in a jar instead of a tube/pump

Hydrating/Matifying Power - 4/5
It does give your face a matte finish but it would only last you around 4-5 hours.

I will go back for this product again after I finish mine as it was worth it.
