L'Oréal Triple Active Day Cream
Advantages: Hydrates and feels silky soft. Very light and easily absorbed.
Disadvantages: There are cheaper creams which work just as well for me, so will only buy when on offer.
Indeed it was an offer which led me to my purchase of this Triple Active Day Muliti-Protection Moisturiser from L'Oreal. I was in need of a new moisturiser and just about to purchase my usual Nivea when my eyes fell upon this moisturiser displayed on a promotional cardboard stand in Morrisons recently. There were a number of L'Oreal creams and moisturisers available all at promotional prices and I took a closer look.
Tempted by the offer price of just £4 for a 50ml tub of Triple Active Day Muliti-Protection Moisturiser I decided to buy one. I chose the one for dry and sensitive skin as I have noticed now that I am getting older my skin on my face is edging more towards feeling and looking dry than the combination skin it used to be. It can also feel a little sensitive at times and so I have been ensuring that I now purchase facial products for sensitive skin.
This Triple Active Day Muliti-Protection Moisturiser contains Vitamin E, plus Ceramide and UV Filter. I have had good results when using Vitamin E enriched creams in the past and a UV Filter I think is a necessity when choosing moisturiser, so this was the appeal of the moisturiser to me, along with the £4 price tag instead of the usual £6-£7 per tub of course!
The triple action of this moisturiser is to provide long-lasting hydration, protection and radiance. Enriched with glycerine, the formula is said to improve the skin's ability to retain water and improve hydration during the day.
As well as Vitamin E, this moisturiser contains Vitamin B5, which along with Ceramide, helps to reinforce the skin's protective surface and leave it looking more radiant.
You are advised to to use this moisturiser on your face and neck each day and night to achieve the best results, which L'Oreal state will leave your skin feeling soft and silky.
The 50ml pot has a screw top lid, which when removed reveals a protective plastic lid over the top of the cream which is easily removed via a raised lip on the lid.
What struck me first was how light the moisturiser looked and appeared to be a more fluid type of moisturiser. Whilst it wasn't exactly runny, it certainly looked lighter than many facial moisturisers I have used. I was worried that maybe it would be greasy and difficult to absorb into my skin as I looked at it in the pot, as indeed this is what I have encountered in the past with similar looking creams.
As I dabbed a little on to my fingertips however and proceeded to apply it to my face and neck, I realised despite looking greasy, the moisturiser was sinking instantly into my skin and there was no excessive massaging required as it became absorbed quickly and easily.
It doesn't feel greasy at all but does feel very light.
I have been using this moisturiser for a number of weeks now and whilst I am happy with it overall, I can't say I have noticed my skin looking more radiant after continued use of this for the last few weeks.
What I do like however, is the refreshing feeling to my skin when I apply this moisturiser and as well as feeling refreshed and hydrated, my skin loses any tightness and instantly feels soft and silky as stated. The dryness and any sensitivity is helped considerably by using this and I make sure I apply it each morning and evening, although my skin continues to feel soft and moisturised thoughout the day until the next application. It does appear to keep my skin hydrated and feeling soft for 24 hours without any dryness or tightness which is exactly what I want from a moisturiser.
It also acts as a good base for make up and I experience no problems applying concealer, foundation or bronzer on top of this moisturiser.
Whilst I am perfectly happy to use and recommend this moisturiser, I would only purchase it again if it is available at a promotional price. This is because I don't believe it offers anything different from the usual Nivea moisturisers I buy and they are cheaper than the RRP of this one.
I believe it is well worth purchasing this Triple Active Day Muliti-Protection Moisturiser however, if you can get it for £4 like I did!
Summary: A good facial moisturiser from L'Oreal which keeps my skin feeling soft and hydrated.
