My Experience with L’Oreal Hydra Fresh Multi-Active 3-in-1 Genius Water
This product comes in a square-shaped transparent tall glass bottle. The opening dispenses one drop of serum at a time so no wastage while pouring. The bottle is quite heavy so this is not at all good for travel purposes. The bottle is leak-proof though.
Colour & Texture
This is a colorless watery liquid slightly thicker than regular toners. The brand has named it as genius water because the liquid has small droplets of Hyaluronic acid floating on the liquid. Due to Loreal’s amazing technology, oily parts do not get entirely separated from the watery portion so no shaking needed at the time of application.
It has a very light floral fragrance very similar to The Face Shop sheet masks. The smell goes off within seconds though.
Ease of Application
Take 2 drops of the liquid on hand and rub the palms to mix up the water and moisturizing droplets. Apply on freshly cleansed slightly damp face and neck with gentle patting motion until the product gets absorbed completely.
I was looking for a moisturizing toner in the K-beauty genre for quite a long time now but the price was certainly out of my budget. Finally, I ended up buying this ‘Genius’ water from L’Oreal and thankfully it suited my skin really well. After 4-5 days of regular application, my skin became moisturized as it increased my skin’s hydration level like sheet masks. The skin looks healthy and glowing. It did not aggravate existing pimple or caused new acne. This product makes no other claim than hydrating your skin and it certainly keeps the promise. This one is certainly not comparable to Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair but it is a good one for the price.

Would I Repurchase or Recommend?
This is a really nice budget-friendly serum-essence-toner that hydrates my skin. So, I am definitely repurchasing this. I will recommend this to people as a sustitute of The Face Shop’s expensive Chia range toners.
Rating-4/5 [Deducting 1 for glass packaging]
