Hydro Face Moisturizer is specially designed to increase skin hydration, treat dry and sensitive skin, improve skin tone and texture, and mask imperfections. It is enriched with SPF 15 and natural ingredients such as soybean extracts, shea butter & patchouli oil. Its anti-aging ingredients activates skin elasticity and makes skin smooth & soft.
My Experience with Faces Hydro Face Moisturizer SPF 15:
It comes in a regular white plastic cylindrical bottle and the packaging carries an orange label to it. The outer box is fully orange and apart from the name the only way to quickly spot this one amongst the rest is heading for an orange. Other than that, it is sturdy, definitely not purse friendly but can be carried around when you travel if it an absolute necessity. The nozzle works just fine and dispenses right amount of product. The same applies to the transparent white cap, with effort you can hear it click; even otherwise it is not bound to spill. The best thing about the packaging that is very useful is the clear label, on the outer package, the box and the tube.
The texture although a little dense when dispensed on the hand, is light on the skin. This gel-like cream gets absorbed instantly. The white cream has a creamy consistency but is more gel-like and stays in place if you know what I mean.
Very light on the skin, gets absorbed instantly and can be made to suit all skin types. More amount of product would be required for a dry skin type. The drier your skin, more is the product requirement, as simple as that. It really hydrates the skin without causing any discomfort; by that I mean being non-greasy. I am not certain about sweat proof as I am yet to try in on the hot days. It definitely leaves your skin supple and soft, and with some room to breathe. The beauty of this cream – it does not feel layered up on the skin even though you have applied it. In my opinion, the natural ingredients might have contributed to such a great effective formula.
Here is an interesting insight of the natural active ingredients, properties and their overall contribution to the product performance. Soybean extracts would contribute to reduce effects of exposure to UV rays and since it also impacts on skin’s elasticity and thickness, the moisturizer claims to have anti-ageing properties. Patchouli oils also partially can be attributed to similar anti-ageing properties due to its impact on the circulation of muscles, and therefore preventing skin sagging. Since it is very gentle on the skin, it also supports the moisturizer to suit all skin types while keeping other skin problems at bay. Shea butter is not just gentle on the skin, it can keep the skin away from some pigmentation and help with wrinkles.
The overall ingredients put together are not very pleasant smelling. It carries a thin detergent-like herbal aroma to it. Bearable but who does not like a pleasant smelling product when it is almost ‘close to perfect’. That can only be the downside to this one mostly.
This moisturizer from ‘Faces’ would have been my first option had it carried a different fragrance. Otherwise I do not this regret this purchase from Faces. Once you are used to it, if your skin is, you would carry it with you even when you travel, and such is the performance.
