Hello everyone,

     Today’s review is on the last product I am using from the L’Oreal Paris Hydra Fresh range which is the L’Oreal Paris HydraFresh Hydration + Antiox Active Supreme Night Mask-In Jelly, I have already reviewed the toner & day cream from this range and you can read it here & here.

     I have already mentioned few times that my skin is combination-oily in summers and I prefer using light hydrating moisturizers both for day & night time and got the L’Oreal hydrafresh products for the summer. The night mask-in jelly as the name suggests is to be used at night and it comes in a pink luxurious glass tub packaging which is bulky but looks pretty.   This as the name suggests has a texture of jelly  rather than a gel as the name suggests and has a mild fragrance which also smells of alcohol due to its alcohol content like the emulsion which fades away as soon as you apply it on the skin. It spreads well on the skin, non-sticky and get absorbed well into the skin, even if applied slightly excessively.  The mask-in jelly provides enough moisturization for my skin type and hence will be suitable for oily & combination-oily skin people, but if you have dry skin and also if you get dry patches during winters like me then the moisturization will not be enough though it is meant for all skin types.  The jelly does not make the skin oily and in the morning the face is fresh and oil free which I like a lot.  One tub will last for 2.5-3 months when used daily.  I like the night jelly a lot more than compared to the emulsion mainly for the affordable price and it’s widely available in India.  It has alcohol and dimethicone as few of the top listed ingredients though it also contains some natural ingredients like grape polyphenols and Frech Vosges Spa water which is enriched with minerals.  It is meant for all skin types but with the high alcohol content I don’t think so it will suit dry skin and it might dry out the skin in the long run and this does not provide any other skin benefits other than hydration. I almost love this night jelly and would repurchase it, but with the high alcohol content and list of other chemicals in it, I personally prefer the Just Herbs Fair’e Mulethi-khus Skin Lightening Gel which give me much better results with added benefits.

Pros: 

Beautiful luxurious looking packaging

Smells mildly that fades away quickly post application

Lightweight jelly that gets absorbed well even if applied in excess

Makes the skin supple & smooth

Hydrates the skin decently

Little amount is needed so it will last for 2.5-3 months

It will suit normal, oily & combination-oily skin

French Vosges spa water with enriched minerals and grape polyphenols are added natural goodness

Doesn’t make the skin greasy

Affordable price and widely available in India

Cons:

Contains alcohol & dimethicone as few of the top list ingredient which might explain for its immediate absorbency into the skin, but alcohol might dry out the skin in the long run

I personally prefer more natural based products and usually stay away from products with a long list of chemicals and it does nothing miraculously.

Moisturization will not be enough for dry skin though they claim it for all skin types

  • shampita@Therainbowlady 2 years ago

    I think I would try the Just herbs one, I got severely tanned when I was in Puri and that is just not going. Did it remove tan ?

    • Preethy 2 years ago

      I am not sure about tan removal with the just herbs one but it did fade the scars I had, the new ones fade more quickly. So try and see

  • Sonali 2 years ago

    It’s great that jelly gets absorbed even if applied in excess. The price difference is too much in different countries!!!
