Today, I am here to review a face wash from the L’Oreal range. Earlier I had reviewed an exfoliating gel wash from the brand, which was quite good except for the drying part. So, let’s see how this one performed for me.

My Take on L’Oreal Hydra Total 5 Silky Cream Wash:
I am actually impressed with this face wash. My face is in a weird kind of mode these days, sometimes I feel a little dry, other days I feel normal with an oily T-zone. This face wash has been consistent during both times, I mainly picked up this because it is for dry and sensitive, which is the nature of my skin. This face wash is runny in nature with a silky texture just as it claims. It is a white translucent face wash, so soft that I wondered whether it would really give a squeaky clean face. It has a nondescript fragrance quite similar to Cetaphil cleanser.
After I used this, I could really feel the difference in my skin, it made my skin soft instantly without any dry or stretchy feel. It also removed all traces of makeup and impurities from my face, giving a bright refreshed look. Even when I had oily skin days, it did not give any greasy feel but rather cleansed my face giving a clean and clear feel. It also did not cause me any irritation but gave a soothing effect. It has totally helped me in maintaining my fresh face look. I did not feel the urgent need to apply a moisturizer right after cleansing which is a big “yay” for me. I am not sure how it will work on very oily skin types even though it is said to be a gel cream wash, but it is definitely a winner for combination, dry and sensitive skin types. The only turn off was the taste of this face wash, I got the taste of it while washing my face, and it had an awful chemical taste, which I never experienced with other face washes I have used.
The packing is also simple and sturdy, coming in a white and pink inverted tube with a flip open cap, but definitely have to take extra precautions while travelling to avoid leakage. So let me sum this up for you.
Pros of L’Oreal Hydra Total 5 Silky Cream Wash:
- It greatly cleanses your skin giving an instant softness with a refreshed feel.
- The runny texture makes it easy to blend on your face and wash off easily.
- Silky cream wash truly justifies their name by providing silky, smooth feel on your skin.
- It does not cause any irritation on sensitive skin.
- It removes all traces of makeup and impurities from your skin giving a squeaky clean skin.
- Does not have any prominent scent.
- Good product at a reasonable price.
Cons of L’Oreal Hydra Total 5 Silky Cream Wash:
- It is said to be for dry and sensitive skin types, so oily skin people will have to try other options.
- The awful taste of the face wash, which can be easily avoided.
4.7/5. I would recommend this face wash to all combination, dry and sensitive skin beauties out there.
