Go beyond hydration. Introducing L’Oreal’s New Skincare line: Hydra-Total 5. L’Oréal Paris laboratories created three different product lines designed specifically for each skin type:
Ultra-Even Routine — Normal Skin
Ultra-Fresh Routine — Normal to Combination Skin
Ultra-Soothing Routine — Dry to Sensitive Skin
No more adding more products on your skin than you need to or even leaving an assembly line of products on your bathroom counter. With just 3 steps, the Ultra-Fresh Routine provides 5 benefits, 1 ritual for perfectly refreshed skin.
STEP 1 – Cleanse with Ultra-Fresh Gel Cleanser.
The Gel Cleanser makes skin feel clean and refreshed. It cleanses, removes skin’s impurities, tighten pores, and brightens, leaving skin with a fresh revitalized feeling. Rub gently onto damp face and rinse completely.
First and foremost, the gel cleanser was very fragrant, a high pitch of floral sweetness. The gel was light and wasn’t harsh on skin. Although it suggests rubbing gently on damp skin, when it comes to gel cleansers, I prefer using a cleansing brush. A little went a long way and foamed up quite a lot. During the rinsing process, my skin felt smooth instead of a squeaky feel that other cleansers sometimes give. It left my face feeling clean and not drying, it instantly provided softness with a refreshing feel.
STEP 2 – Tone with Ultra-Fresh Toner
The Toner tones the skin, removes impurities and tightens pores in oily-prone areas. Skin stays clean and complexion looks refresh, remains visibly soft, smooth and even. Use a cotton ball, gently dab onto dry face without rubbing.
Not as fragrant as the cleanser, but still has a fragrant scent with a hint of refreshing cucumber and citrus. The toner left the skin feeling fresh and pores tight. It went on gently and did not sting or irritate the skin.
STEP 3 – Hydrate with Ultra-Fresh Cream-Gel Moisturizer
Vitamins (CG, E, B5) and essential minerals (magnesium and calcium) enriched gel formula provides all day moisture, revitalizes, refreshes, softens and tones skin. Meeting the five essential needs of normal to combination skin types. Apply to cleansed face and neck daily. For optimal absorption, massage onto skin using a circular motion.
The scent of the Cream-Gel moisturizer was fragrant like the cleanser and toner but very subtle and refreshing. The texture of the moisturizier was light, absorbed instantly and left the face feeling fresh. Very hydrating and provided a soft, smooth, silky finish on the skin.
Overall, I really enjoyed the 3-step Hydra-Total 5 Ultra-Fresh Ritual. A simple ritual that takes little to no time to do while also leaving the skin feeling soft and hydrated.
