I found L'oreal Triple Active Day Multi-Protection Moisteriser on offer and decided to treat myself to this promising looking item instead of buying the cheapest product on the skincare shelves as I usually do. The box had soft, subtle colours, suggesting a moisteriser that would be gentle on the skin and I personally preferred the simple looking design as I felt that I wasn't paying more money for the packaging but for the quality product inside. A little to my disappointment, the little white jar inside the box only contained a measly 50ml of moisteriser, but of course, luxury goods like to come in small amounts.
Triple Active Day is aimed towards normal and combination skin and although I consider myself to have oily skin, the product didn't cause any adverse effects nor did it exacerbate the problems that I have with my skin type.
I always use a facial wash in the morning which leaves my face squeaky clean but a bit on the dry side, and I treat this with a moisteriser. The Triple Active Day absorbed quickly and left my skin feeling silky and hydrated in the mornings, I didn't even need to use a lot as it spread very smoothly over a lot of my face. I didn't find it heavy or greasy at all and it held eyeshadow and both kohl and liquid eyeliner very well, even without a foundation. The moisteriser was ever so lightly scented, which sat well with me as I'm not one for heavily fragranced creams, and I couldn't smell it at all after application. At the end of the day, I would still be able to feel the silky layer on my face, protecting my pores from the city pollution and it washed off easily without any need for soap.
I didn't feel that I was anymore radiant with the added Vitamin E and ceramide, but I was glad for the UV filter as I'm quite concerned about the damaging effects of sun exposure. These extra ingredients clearly add to the price but I don't feel the radiant ones are justified since I didn't perceive any difference even after using the whole jar.
Overall, I was happy with the quality and if I ever find it on offer again I would buy it; I'm just not prepared to pay full price for such a small jar. I gave it 3 stars here, but it's more of a 3.5.
