L'Oréal Paris Hydra Fresh Range Review: Smooth & Bouncy skin

It's been a horrible month of breakouts since end of july till today but thank god it has started to subside >.< I previously always mentioned how blessed i am to have "good skin" compared to most people so when a cluster f*ck happens on my face imagine the panic and situation i am in.
Completely helpless, everything i do seems to agitate it even more :-(
Plus the pimple creams i've been using all over has been making my skin look dry and haggard due to it's strong formula. Not to mention, pimple scars on my face caused my by itchy hands trying to "help" it =.= stupid hands.

Who here has experienced a similar problem? There is a period of time where you are suddenly attacked by clusters lol. So not fun i tell ya.

But throughout my troubled skin period i was using L'Oréal Paris Hydra Fresh Range to keep my skin hydrated as it's one of L'Oréal Paris's breakthrough hydration skincare product in the market shelves today which people have been raving about it's waterlike texture and the miraculous results it produces.
Don't believe me just search this hashtag:  #smoothbouncyskin

See? No foundation or powder used, just natural sunlight.
But you can still see the scars caused by the clusters all over my chin area.

Have to thank L'Oréal Paris team who contributed big time for my recent smooth, refreshed and bouncier skin! After 4 weeks+ of using their Hydra Fresh Range, there are remarkable results such as suppleness and better elasticity.
And this is the first time i am actually going through a proper skincare regime that requires me to use toner and moisturizer after cleansing, not to mention a daily night mask lol.
The thought of it already made me lazy but hey, if i want my skin to recover better be rajin sikit.
Hydra Fresh range is available in a complete set as in facial cleanser, toner, day time mask and night mask (kisao man.. 2 masks a day @@)

They are first ever I've actually heard off to create facial masks that you can leave on without wiping it off, i mean that makes life so much easier, even wearing sheet masks also i malas because i have to remove them after 15-20 minutes but usually lupa la because fall asleep with it on lol.
It's also like a "moisturizer" but with a lil more "omph"to keep your skin lock and  moisturized the whole day.

True enough results started showing after 4 weeks, my scars are still around but at least it's fading, plus i have lesser fine lines when i smile (no kidding) not to say i am old with wrinkles but everyone has fine lines all over their face which becomes more obvious especially if you wear make up (foundation & powder). 
Now applying on make up becomes even more flawless but i prefer to flaunt my fresh bouncy skin now, so pardon me if i start taking photos without any make up lol.

First let me into the toner, it's a hydration spa water that literally leaves you face feeling squeaky clean, take cotton pad apply this and wipe all over your face (you know the drill). Then before you throw the cotton pad take a look at it :P
Love the water like texture that doesn't leave your face sticky once it's dry, yea most beauty products in the market now claim to be "water based, fast drying & non sticky/ oily" but all those are just marketing gimmicks =.= 
But with L'Oréal Paris Hydra Fresh Toner, confirm no sticky feeling, bonus the scent for this range is really delectable!
Can't exactly make up what's the scent but yea.. the scent somehow reminds me of these two words "juicy & bouncy" lol. Don't ask me why, just go smell it and you'll know what i am talking about.

Honestly me no likey the day mask a.k.a gel, used after the toner. Because it feels sticky with abit of weight on my face even with the most minimal amount used. Usually would skip this if i had to put on make up because my face is already heavy enough with make up and sunscreen on, wouldn't need extra weight on it please lol.
But on days off i wouldn't mind using this except it makes my face oilier than it already has :-/
My skin is a combination of dry & oily (contradicting, i know) T-zone area obviously the oily zone meanwhile my cheeks are usually normal-ish. Upon using this my whole face jadi shiny (oily) after 2-3 hours, is that normal? But rest assure even if this product is semi-rich, it doesn't cause any breakouts or clogged pores so those with dry skin or work in air conditioned places might like to try this.

My favourite out of the whole range! The smell is seriously a perfect for calming the mind before bedtime, and it's jelly like texture makes absorption fast. Think aside from the toner spa water, this night time mask is the only one i use every night without fail and the next morning confirm your skin will feel super supple, like newborn baby's butt! Lol.
I would recommend people who always sleep in air conditioned room to use this, as i do too myself ever since i moved into my new place. Every morning without this, my skin would feel seriously dry and haggard making makeup application harder to set on skin :-/

Overall this stuff works la per say~ so if you are always having tired and dry skin that makes your pores, wrinkles and other skin problems more obvious then it's best to give this Hydra Fresh Range a try :-)
Best part is, it is darn affordable. Not the super duper expensive skincare brand and easily available at your local leading pharmacies like Guardian and Watsons. Plus now they have instore promotions due to Merdeka celebration :D
Better take this time to swipe this range at a discounted price and trust me you wouldn't be disappointed with it's texture and results!
